The English have the 12 days of Christmas in song.  The high churches have the 24 (ish) days of advent.  Here at Crave Something More, I’ll be writing a series called the “21 Days of CSM Christmas.”  Starting December 5 and finishing on Christmas Day, I will write once a day about all things Christmas, in the hopes that we will all continue to see Jesus as the greatest satisfaction to our soul’s deepest cravings.

Day 7:  This Christmas, Give Me Jesus

Tonight, I went to my buddy Dan’s birthday party, and we spent part of the evening singing worship songs, and the guys played this one song I had not heard before called Give Me Jesus.  It’s not a Christmas song, but it might as well be.

Let the simplicity of these lyrics magnify the simplicity of Jesus’ love for us, a love that surpasses all human knowledge, but a love even we can understand.  There’s great glory in this kind of love.

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
Just give me Jesus

When I am alone
When I am alone
Oh, when I am alone
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
Just give me Jesus
Give me Jesus

When I come to die
When I come to die
Oh, when I come to die
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
Just give me Jesus

Here is Jeremy Camp singing this beautiful song:

Be encouraged this Christmas to say:  You can have all the good things of this world—just give me Jesus.
