Give Me Jesus ~ A Tribute to Ruth Bell Graham


I came across this video today, and I was so touched by the beauty of it.
It was sung by Fernando Ortega at the tribute to Ruth Bell Graham in December 2007.
I so admired Ruth Graham for her life in service to Jesus, and no one else could sing this as beautifully as Fernando Ortega.
The pictures and words of tribute captured Ruth Graham's love for her family and the Lord in a tender, life-affirming way.
I hope you will be blessed by it.


 
Give Me Jesus
 
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus
,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I am alone
When I am alone
When I am alone, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I come to die
When I come to die
When I come to die, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

I so enjoy Fernando and have most of his CD's that we listen to during every car trip. I once tried to use this particular song as a ring tone but sadly, it didn't work :)

His music always leads my heart into worship. The words and the music are wonderful.
