Dear Jesus, I'm desperate for You. I'm lost without You.

This goes out to my husband. He sings this Michael W. Smith song so beautifully for a communion meditation hymn at Mass.

Oh, now I remember it! I think it is on the CD that "got me to your house" that trip which seems so very long ago. It ia a nice song. I'd like to hear your dh sing it. I bet it's beautiful.

It is. Thanks! :)

I'm sorry, but I can never hear that song without thinking of Faith Hill. That's what I get for working at a country station.

4HisChurch said...

Wow, I didn't know Faith Hill did it too. I admit to not being able to stomach most country music (except for Southern Rock type stuff.)

Cygnus--Lifeisgreat informs me that Faith Hill's song is "Breath" and its not the same. But, as I said, I would have no idea, because I don't really listen to country music.

Cygnus said...

They're both named "Breathe," but they're not the same song. Here's the refrain from Faith Hill's version:

Cause I can feel you breathe
Washing over me
Suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
An'Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

And those aren't the only songs with that title either.

Maybe Lifeisgreat was thinking of "Breath", a parody of the above by Cledus T. Judd:

Cause I can smell your breath
It's gagging me to death
Something must have died inside of you
What you ought to do
Is chase a Cert or two
With Listerine
Even when you're gone
The odor lingers on
I'm buying you an Oral B and a jumbo tube of Crest
Cause I can smell your breath
Bad breath

Please forgive me for this major-league digression from what your original point was!

That's ok, Cygnus!

The first couple of times I heard this song (several years ago) I was not to crazy about it. Then it started to grow on me. Now it's up there as one of my favorites. I've even sang and played this at our Parish in Glen Burnie.

I would love to hear DH sing it to. I bet he really does a great job with it.

Thanks! He does change the words a bit to make them more suitable for a communion meditation hymn.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
