Who Am I?

This song was the profile song on my myspace up until a couple of days ago. I love Casting Crowns and think they have outstanding songs. The message in many of their songs is distinctly counter-culture and anybody who challenges us to think counter-culture gets a gold medal in my books.

Although I’ve been listening to the song on myspace for months and loved it, I didn’t really know the lyrics for this particular one because of the garbled nature of myspace music. Well, I just bought the CD that has this song and now I like it 10x more. 🙂 This particular one isn’t really counter-culture as such. It is based on Psalm 139 & 52 and Ephesians 2 and, to me, it is a beautiful reminder of who God is in spite of what we are.

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever-wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But becuse of what You’ve done
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I’m calling
Lord, You catch m when I’m falling
And You’ve told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
‘Cause I am Yours
I am Yours
