Lord, I Need You (Matt Maher with Audrey Assad)

Christian singer-songwriters extraordinaire Matt Maher and Audrey Assad posted an acoustic duet of Maher’s song “Lord, I Need You” from his “All the People Said Amen” album on Youtube the other day.

Their sublime harmonies combined with meaningful lyrics should resonate with anyone feeling a little overwhelmed by the burdens of life.

“Lord, I Need You” lyrics

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You’re my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

    That was great. Thanks for sharing. That’s a strange looking behind the altar. Not sure what that section of the church is called, but normally you would have a crucifix there. Looks like wood panelling with menorahs. Is that a synogogue?

      Though it’s a little hard to tell, I suspect that a monstrance is what’s in the center of the altar with upward sloping candelabras on either side.
