A blog about current Christian songs that have strong, deep lyrics and can be used in contemporary or blended Christian Worship formats.

You Are My World by Joel Kanitz & Jonathan Favorite

Today’s strong worship song is You Are My World by Joel Kanitz & Jonathan Favorite as played by the CrossWalk band in Phoenix, AZ. The song is featured on their first ever album called Acoustics which can be purchased on iTunes. I personally know the song writers and absolutely love what they are doing. Please support them by downloading their album. The songs are all original songs and are written with strong lyrics in mind from the start. You are My World was written especially for CrossWalk‘s 5th Anniversary. It is a song of praise giving God full credit for all of the blessings they have as a relatively new congregation. They lyrics correctly proclaim God as the source of all good things. They lyrics also point to our depravity because of sin and the amazing love and grace of God to put our lives back together in Christ.

Bible references include 1 John 2:2, 2 Corinthians 4:7, 1 John 4:8, John 3:16, Psalm 31:10, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, and Ephesians 2:8-9.

You are My World

Life has brought me down

I feel like I am lost and can’t be found
And when I’ve given up You’re still around
You pull me up

Take this broken clay
Restore it back to life to work today
Because of all Your goodness I will say
Your Name be praised

And in all of this You show

You are grace, You are love
You’re an everlasting Savior
I am weak but You are strong
And I will praise Your Name forever
Praise Your Name forever
You are my world
You are my world

How could I pretend
That any of my works could ever mend
A love for me so great You chose to send
Your only Son

Your love is full and free
And Jesus’ sacrifice has covered me
You’ve given me a life eternally
By grace alone

And in all of this I see

I am finally free
By what You’ve given for me
I’ll be with You for eternity
When I look to the cross I see
