Lord, You are more precious than silver

Lord, You are more precious than silver;
Lord, You are more costly than gold;
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds;
And nothing I desire compares with You.
Lord, Your life is divine, eternal.
Lord, Your life regenerated me.
Lord, Your life is growing within me,
Until I am fully conformed to Thee.
Lord, Your love is wide as the ocean.
Lord, Your love is deep as the sea.
Lord, Your love encompasses the nations,
And that is all I want to live in me.
Lord, Your light is shining within us;
Lord, Your light drives darkness away.
Lord, Your light is guiding us onwards,
Preparing us for the coming wedding day.

I love this song we sang it at church sunday singing


Coplay, PA, United States

I too learned this song many years ago. I would ultimately combine or mix up the verses but it always came out as beautiful tearful worship.

This morning this song rose up in my spirit. More of him less of me. The cares of things of this world.

This song is as powerful as it was when I was first saved 28 years ago. I now have all of the lyrics and praises to our LORD and Savior!


Bradenton, FL, United States



Heard this song from Holy Spirit yesterday and havenโ€™t heard it since my early walk. Never knew all the verses, but they are so rich! He IS ALL we need. Hope deferred makes the heart sickโ€ฆ. nothing should take precedence in our life over knowing Him!


Billings, MT, United States

Woke up with this beautiful song in my head when I hadn't heard it in years.

Love it!

Reading and believing every Word of God is a sapphire, a spoken sapphire, a treasure and yet much more precious, this hymn came to mind and brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. He is the Word and He holds His Word above his Name, John 1:1

The word sapphire ultimately comes from the ancient Hebrew word sappir and the Hebrew root saphar which means to speak.
