TSMSS - Seekers of Your Heart

Almost 25 years ago, one of Larnelle Harris's albums, The Father Hath Provided, had a gem of a song hidden on it. It never got any radio airtime, which was a shame, as it was an incredible song, both lyrically and musically. (The album did win a Dove Award in 1987 for Inspirational Album of the Year.) The song made a second appearance on a subsequent album, Larnelle: The Best of 10 Years Vol. 1.

I couldn't resist reaching back into the memory vaults and playing this song. It's the only time I am aware that an album contained a trio composed of Larnelle, Sandi Patty, and Steve Green. They are three wonderful soloists whose voices blend together in beautiful harmony!

{Just a note: imeem always confuses me. Don't push the Play button or you'll just get an excerpt. Click just to the right of the button where it says Play Full Song Here.]


Seekers Of Your Heart - Larnelle;Sandi Patti;Steve Green


SEEKERS OF YOUR HEART

Until we give You first place
Until we let You begin
To fill us with Your Spirit
Renew us from within
Nothing matters
Nothing's gained
Without your Holy Presence
Our lives are lived in vain

CHORUS
Lord we want to know You
Live our lives to show You
All the love we owe You
We're seekers of Your heart


Because Your heart was broken
Because You saw the need
Because You gave so freely
Because of Calvary
We can now be
Called Your own
Completed creations
Filled with You alone

Repeat Chorus

Written by Dick & Mel Tunney and Beverly Darnall

Oh how I love this song. I taught this in a choir a couple of years ago when I was still in the Phil.

Thanks for posting. Have a blessed day.

I've never heard this song either. Those lyrics are so full. It's a shame that not all songs can get the air play they deserve.

That was beautiful, Linda. Imeems made me sign in, because I have an account with them. I am so glad you posted that song. I wrote a song, "Lord, I Long to Know Thee", and I wondered if it sounded like another song. I believe it may be that one. I may not be able to copyright that one. Thank you ~
