I really love singing this song to the Lord, and now especially in our organic church group. Heard it sung at a Promise Keepers conference way back when. Joseph Garlington does a great job singing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rl45JnnRSw

Knowing You (All I Once Held Dear), by Graham Kendrick

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.

CHORUS:
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 know 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.
