Praise & Worship Sunday: Draw Me Close

Draw Me Close
Michael W. Smith
(Click the title to go to the YouTube video)

Draw me close to you
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear you say that I’m your friend
You are my desire No one else will do
Cause nothing else can take your place
To feel the warmth of your embrace
Help me find the way
Bring me back to you

You’re all I want
You’re all I’ve ever needed
You’re all I want
Help me know you are near

Above All
Michael W. Smith

Above all powers above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began

Above all kingdoms above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There’s no way to measure what You’re worth

Crucified laid behind the stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a Rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all

Above all powers above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began

Above all kingdoms above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There’s no way to measure what You’re worth

Crucified laid behind the stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a Rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all

Crucified laid behind the stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a Rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all

Like a Rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all

I included both of these songs because Michael W. Smith sings both of them in the video. I’d never seen this video till I went searching for the first song and I just love watching musicians totally get into their music. And he’s such a great worship leader and song writer. I loved it.

I’m sure a lot of people can say that they grew up listening to Michael W. Smith. I certainly can. I LOVE him. He is probably one of my very favorite Christian artists. His songs are just amazing and he has a song for every emotion you may be going through. These two songs are ones that I could listen to and sing over and over and over. And if I’m feeling down and out of sorts when I sing / listen to them, they’ll likely bring me to tears, too.

Join Brittany at Sweet Nothings for more Praise & Worship Sundays.

If someone could tell me how to include the videos in my post without having to link to YouTube, I’d really appreciate it!! Thanks!

  1. Yes, I too grew up with Michael W. Smith and too love these songs!!

    If you want to embed the video from Youtube, over to the right in the gray box there are two windows, one that says URL and one that says Embed. Copy the code in the box that says embed and paste it in your post!

    Hope that helps!! If you have any questions let me know!!!

    Hope you’re having a great weekend!!

    That video is great and Michael W. Smith is indeed a great artist.
    Heard these songs for the firts time, but I love them!

  4. These are great classics. Thanks for sharing!

  5. great songs! i was going to say what jen said about embedding the video.

    we used to sing “draw me close to you” with our choir at our last church.

    those are both encouraging songs.

  6. Michael W. Smith IS a great songwriter! He has so many wonderful songs! Thanks so much for sharing these today! Hope you’re having a great day!

  7. hey – i was looking for your google ads and can’t find them. did you delete them or am i having a blonde moment?

  8. I always enjoy Michael W. Smith. Thank you for sharing a great video. Happy Sunday.

  9. Both of these are great songs, with great messages and Brittany is right, Michael W. Smith is a great songwriter! So glad you shared these with us today. 🙂

  10. Two very good picks!! me & my friend would also argue because I would say Steve Curtis Chapman was better – & she was a MWSmith girl all the way! They are both fantastic though!

  11. Great songs. 🙂

  12. Micheal’s song “Above All” has meant so much to me! Amazing.

  13. I LOVE Michael W. Smith! Always have – he is one of the best worship leaders, isn’t he? 🙂
