Be Near, O God (Shane & Shane concert)

I just heard a CD with this song on it, and it spoke deeply to me. I found this acoustic version on youtube…the recorded version is nothing short of chilling, but this is very real, too.

It’s Shane & Shane. What worshippers! Thanks for sharing this. I’m going to buy me some Shane & Shane real soon. I also love “Mercy Reigns” from them, among others.


You are all,

big and small

And wonderful to trust in grace through faith

But I’m asking to taste~

For dark is light to you

Depths are height to you

Far is near,

but Lord I need to hear from you

Be near, oh God, Be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good
Be near, oh God, Be near, oh God of us
Your nearness is to us our good
Our good

Your fullness is mine (Your fullness is mine)
Revelation divine (Revelation divine)
But oh to taste,

to know much more than a page

To feel your embrace…

For dark is light to you

Depths are height to you

Far is near

but Lord, I need to hear from you

Be near oh God Be near oh God of us
You’re nearness is to us our good
Be near oh God Be near oh God of us
You’re nearness is to us our good

Be near oh God Be near oh God of us
You’re nearness is to us our good
Be near oh God Be near oh God of us
You’re nearness is to us our good
My good

    Thank you so much! I really needed to hear that today. There are so many things going on in so many arenas of our life. My mother, my mother-in-law are both facing eternity. Each time the phone rings we are thinking that it is “the” call. So to be reassured that “God is near”… is so refreshing and comoforting!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
