Knowing You (All I Once Held Dear)  Misc. Gospel

[C]All[G/B] I  [Am]once [F]held [C]dear, built my [F]life [G]up[C]on,
All [G/B]this [Am]world [F]re[C]veres and [Am]wars to [G]own;
[C]All I [F]once [G]thought [C]gain[C/E] I  have [F]coun[G]ted [Am]loss,[C]
Spent [G/B]and [Am]worth[F]less [C]now com[Am]pared to [Gsus4]this.

[G]Knowing [F6]You, [C]Jesus,[F/G]    kno[G]wing [C]You
There [Am]is no [Em/G]greater [F]thing.
You're my [C/E]all, You're the [F/A]best,
You're my [C/G]joy, my righteous[F/A]ness,
And I [C/E]love You [F/A]Lord.  [C/G]      [G]

Now my heart's desire is to know You more,
To be found in You and know as Yours,
To possess by faith what I could not earn
All surpassing gift of righteousness


Oh to know the power of Your risen life,
And to know You in Your sufferings;
To become like You in Your death, my Lord,
So with You to live and never die.

Knowing You

All I [Am]once held [C]dear, built my [Am]life[G] up[C]on,
All this [Am]world [C]reveres and [Am]wars to [G]own;
All I [F]once thought [C]gain I have [F]coun[G]ted [C]loss,
Spent and [Am]worthless [C]now com[Am]pared to [G]this.

Knowing [F]You, [C]Jesus, [F]knowing [C]You
There [Am]is no [G]greater [F]thing.
You're my [C]all, You're the [F]best,
You're my [C]joy, my righteous[F]ness,
And I [C]love You [F]Lord.  [C]    [F]

Now my [Am]heart's de[C]sire is to [Am]know [G]You [C]more,
To be [Am]found in [C]You and [Am]know as [G]Yours,
To pos[F]sess by [C]faith what I [F]could [G]not [C]earn
All sur[Am]passing [C]gift of [Am]righteous[G]ness


Oh to [Am]know the [C]power of Your [Am]rise[G]n l[C]ife,
And to [Am]know You [C]in Your [Am]suffer[G]ings;
To [F]become like [C]You in Your [F]death, [G]my [C]Lord,
So with [Am]You to [C]live and [Am]never [G]die.
