John Piper | – Yearn – Shane & Shane

Music has a unique ability to affect the human soul. The synergy of words and tunes helps us express reality, and feel reality, especially when it resonates with our deepest desires.

“Lord, I want to yearn for you” is a simple line. But for the heart whose passionate pursuit is to know Jesus, this line is an earnest prayer. It is a soundtrack for the life that longs to treasure him more.

Holy design
This place in time
That I might seek and find my God
Lord, I want to yearn for You
I want to burn with passion over You
And only You
Lord, I want to yearn for You
I want to burn with passion over You
And only You
Lord, I want to yearn
Your joy is mine
Yet why am I fine
With all my singing and bringing grain
In light of Him
Oh, You give life and breath
In You we live and move
That’s why I sing

  1. I just want to say I’m going through a constant battle with things I can’t control. I’m sorry lord I’m weak please forgive my mistakes. This music is incredible whenever I lose control of my self these songs help to remind me how much god loves me he is with

  2. I am so passionate for the Lord, yet I hinder my relationship with the Holy Spirit because of my weak impulse control.

    If anyone is willing, whenever you read this, pray that I become stronger in controlling myself and acting only on the things that are holy and beneficial

  3. How could someone seriously dislike this song, that's only the true epitome of hate because this is really a beautiful song for those who are burning for God even for those who are a little cold in faith this song serve as a reminder that we hunger for God and we need him more and more

  4.

  5. Everyone please listen to what I have to say! Jesus is coming soon, are you ready? Have you repented? Have you turned towards God? The Lord wants you in his kingdom to spend eternity with him forever! He loves you with all of his being, he wants you to have trust and faith in him. I am coming to warn you all that Jesus is coming back sooner than you think! Only the Lord knows when, it could be tomorrow, next week, a month from now. He only knows. He wants you to repent your sins to him, he'll take care of you. If you follow him with all of your heart, you'll truly see how absolutely loving he is! You gotta trust me on this, you gotta trust the Lord and savior! He died on a cross for me and you. Don't turn him away, he doesn't want you to perish. Turn to him before it's too late! You can search up YouTube videos if you would like to learn more! The videos really help explain a lot! He really helped me too! ^^ But y'all, I'm telling you this now before it's too late. This isn't something to be taking lightly, whether you believe him or not, please please please turn to him!! I know I'm not a very good explainer but I'm really trying to warn y'all! Even if you're a good person, you could still go to hell because all you did was ignore the Lord and not accept him. Even if you may think you have a good connection with the Lord, it can always be stronger! Please don't ignore him anymore, he wants to be in your life. He's always with you! Even if you may be upset because of what's happening on this Earth right now, you could probably tell that there is not much longer. Don't be left behind!
