I need You

I had been giving thought recently to the expressions we use: need and want, trying to define their uses, etc. Want is, to me, a more carnal word. It’s what we use when the item in question isn’t really something we must have, we want toys as children, we want chocolates, beer, things that satisfy the flesh. Need is used for things we can’t do without. We need food, sleep, and love. We need friendship and we say ‘I need you’ when we feel we can’t live without someone. When I think of need, I think of this song, the theme song to the Jesus mini series in 2000. Yes, there’s times when I need someone to hold me and tell me everthing is going to be alright, but no one does it quite as well as He does.

Title: I Need You

I don’t need a lot of things
I can get by with nothing
Of all the blessings life can bring
I’ve always needed something
But I’ve got all I want
When it comes to loving you
You’re my only reason
You’re my only truth

I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
From heaven’s gate
There’s a freedom in your arms
That carries me through
I need you

You’re the hope that moves me
To courage again
You’re the love that rescues me
When the cold winds, rage
And it’s so amazing
‘Cause that’s just how you are
And I can’t turn back now
‘Cause you’ve brought me too far

I need you like water
Like breath, like rain
I need you like mercy
From heaven’s gate
There’s a freedom in your arms
That carries me through
I need you
Oh yes I do
