My Life in Song

February 1, 2017

Levi Velasco, Author

In 1999 I had the privilege to serve at Promise Keepers based out of Denver, Colorado where I was introduced to the song, Knowing You, by Graham Kendrick. Singing it again at church recently, I quickly realized that this song embodies who I was, who I am and who I will be. Here’s a powerful rendition of Knowing You sung by Bishop Joseph Garlington at a Promise Keepers event. May this song touch your life deeply as it did mine.

All I once held dear, built my life upon,

All this world reveres, and wars to own;

All I once thought gain I have counted loss,

Spent and worthless now, compared to this.



Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you,

There is no greater thing;

You’re my all, you’re the best,

You’re my joy, my righteousness,

And I love you, Lord.


Now my heart’s desire is to know you more,

To be found in you and known as yours;

To possess by faith what I could not earn,

All-surpassing gift of righteousness.


Oh, to know the power of your risen life,

And to know You in Your sufferings;

To become like you in your death, my Lord,

So with you to live and never die.
