A higher view

1
Prod me with Your loving hands,
Stir me from my deep impasse.
I long to flee this stagnant rut;
My soul, my prison, deadened lot,
Which end is just to taste Your wrath;
So set me on the narrow path.
Thorns and thistles may line this road
But it leads me to the mutual abode.

Lift me up with Your mighty hand
Above this frenzied earthly land.
Set me on the mount to see
What the world can offer me;
Till I see the vanity from on high
And earthly desires I bid goodbye
And set my eyes on You.

Lord Jesus we thank You for giving us a view of what the world really is. May we always set our eyes on You only Lord, for everything in this world is vanity.

When I heard this song, it reminded me of the first time it was introduced by Jeff O'yek and Marlon Chua to QC, Philippines saints. Sweet, Sweet fellowship. Hallelujah for the Lord! Miss the fellowship there.

AMEN. This is the first song that my cousin learned from me (with action of course) I like this so much.

Praise the LORD saints! HE is incomparable! He is our all! All things are just vain compared to Him. Amen! Amen! Amen!

I love this song because it shows us how much the world can offer us, but it's nothing compared to what the Lord is to us. We need to have this vision that turns us towards the Lord!

There are times the world seems to offer me so many attractions. But Lord, set me on the mount to see that whatever the world offers are just "dung". How wonderful that we are the faith people, of whom the corrupted world is not worthy. Only the holy city of God, New Jerusalem, is worthy to have us. Hallelujah! (Heb. 11:38 fn 1)

Thank God for giving us a higher view. We'll all be dead to the world, biding goodbye to all that the world offers. God, I love You.

Oh Lord, thank You for this higher view. May I finally bid goodbye to this world. May all the saints especially the young people see the world as a waste and nothing... and come make business with the Lord!

I just recently came back from my first high school retreat, and now this song has so much more meaning... the Lord really lifted me up, and showed me that nothing on this earth is worth wasting our time on. Lord now I can genuinely say that "earthly desires I bid goodbye, and set my eyes on You"! Lord Jesus I love You!
