For the past week or so, I haven't been able to get a song out of my head.
It's a worship song by a man named Kevin Prosch. Kevin made a huge impact on worship back in the early 90's. In fact, Martin Smith of the worship band Delirious says in his book, "Delirious", "without Kevin, the entire geography of worship in the West would not be as it is today... from Kevin, we learned that God was and IS speaking through music, and that our creativity should be unleashed in response to Him rather than used to define Him." And I'm betting most of you don't even know who he is!
Between the ages of 12-15 I listened to Kevin's cassette tapes until they couldn't be played anymore. For years we searched for CD's because we yearned to listen to his music again. Thankfully, I received his "Come to the Light" album a couple of years ago.
A song he wrote called, "How Can I be Satisfied" is the one that has been playing non-stop in my head. I couldn't find the lyrics online, so I listened to the song and typed them out.
oh Lord hear my prayer and my argument; I come with dust on my face.
who could have need of anything else, once they have felt your embrace?
i as a son present my complaint, won't you bend down you ears and hear me?
ive cried out for more, there has to be more. enlarge my portion, come near me.
oh lord break me open with your loving grace, like the five loaves of bread.
place in my heart a passion for you, like none that i've ever had.
my eyes fill with longing for your words of life, I'm hungry for all that you have.
don't let my mind deceive my heart, give me the strength to press in.
should i build an altar and stay here? and grow old and say i'm content?
when will we meet again? i must have more more, i know there is more, there has to be more!
and how can i be satisfied unless you come near and stay by my side
call me your friend count me in for life, oh how can i be satisfied.
That's my prayer for this year-and always. That I wouldn't be satisfied. That I would always want more of Him and that He would place in my heart a passion for Him, like none that I've ever had.
The only place I could find this song for purchase was on Kevin's website. It's $2. You won't regret it.
