Yearn by Shane & Shane

This song (Yearn by Shane & Shane) came on my Pandora station tonight and I was incredibly blessed. It has been a long week. I have struggled with some sickness. I have been incredibly tired for some reason. Relationships have not necessarily been clicking perfectly. And as we get ready for church tomorrow and Christmas just a few days away, I want this to be my prayer.

Holy Design
This place in time
That I might seek and find my God.

Lord, I want to yearn for You. 
I want to burn with passion over You
And only You
Lord, I want to yearn for You.

Your joy is mine
Yet why am I fine
With all my singing and bringing grain
In light of Him.

Oh, You give life and breath
In You we live and move
That's why I sing.


  1. Thad, was so blessed by your reminder of this song. I've long been a fan of the Shanes' worshipful lyrics and haunting harmonies, and "Yearn" was probably the very first track that got constantly repeated playlist time. Thanks again. Praying that your health and relationships heal, and that you and your family have a simply wonderful and Christ-filled Christmas.

  2. To live the spiritual practice of yearning is to live an ecstatic life even when in the practical it is mundane. To live the spiritual practice of yearning is to see the moon and H H H, in Athens experience the wings of desire that carry us there. To live the spiritual practice of yearning is to erotically dance with the sun. It is life itself.
