Jesus Just To Be With You

Jesus, just to be with You

Jesus, just to be with You
Just to be with You
Is all we want

In You we’re made whole
Restored by Your blood
You bring rest to our weary souls
Peace overwhelming
And freedom complete
In You Jesus is all we need

Nothing compares
Nothing could compare
Nothing compares to be loved by You
Loved by You, loved by You
Nothing compares to be loved by You
Loved by You, loved by You
Loved, loved by You

Jesus just to be with you

By Ellen Margrethe Nerheim, Oslo Vineyard

This song has been written as part of the Vineyard Nordic Songwriting-project this spring. In this special time we´re been through, I felt the need for just to be with Jesus, not having to seek Him for anything else than to stay with Him. And that´s where this song came into being.

Be still

Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Be still

I am sovereign, sovereign over all
All authority belongs to Me
I´m exalted, exalted over all
You can trust in knowing that I am

I will fight your battles
I will go before you, go behind you
I will fight your battles right here

Be still

By Ellen Margrethe Nerheim, Oslo Vineyard

I was introduced to a new way of resting in Psalm 46:10 (Be still and know that I am God) by repeatedly reading the Bible-verse, but shortening it each time. It made me focus on different aspects and I found myself wanting to rest in that verse by singing it. One day the melody suddenly came into being while I was playing the guitar. Then I wanted to expand the song by looking into the setting of the verse in the Bible, and different versions focused on God being sovereign and exalted. I was also reminded of Exodus 14:14 which says that the Lord will fight for us, we just need to be still.
