Find me here
And speak to me
I want to feel You
I need to hear You
You are the light
That's leading me to the place
Where I find peace again

You are the strength
That keeps me walking
You are the hope
That keeps me trusting
You are the light to my soul
You are my purpose
You're everything

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this

You calm the storms
And You give me rest
You hold me in your hands
You won't let me fall
You steal my heart
When You take my breath away
Would You take me in take me deeper now

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this

Cause You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want
You're all I need
Everything, everything

And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this
And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better any better than this
And how can I stand here with You
And not be moved by You
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this
Would You tell me how could it be
Any better than this

    This song is written to God saying that He's everything, everything that we need. He is the light, the peace, the strength, the hope, the trust, our purpose, our everything! He calms the storms, gives us rest, holds us in His arms, stills our hearts, takes us deeper in love. How can we stand here and not be moved by God's love? How can anything be better than His love? He's all we want! All we need! Everything!

    My youth group has been performing this skit for a long time now. Our interperative dance group goes to many different churches around our county in Oklahoma to perform it. I love doing it, too. Its very powerful. Although, it does take a lot of strength out of you. You know, getting beat up and everything. I love how it sets out all the huge difficulties and temptations in our life. No matter how far away from Jesus we are, he's always there trying to wave us back to him, trying to pull us away from the temptations of life. We are so blessed to have the gift that Jesus has given us: the gift of choice, and free will. Even when we don't deserve to be loved he's always waiting with open arms.

    We all know that this is a love song. But people, don't be ignorant! How can you compare the love from a boyfriend to the love of God?!?!?!? It doesn't compare at all. Gods love is not compared with anything! This song is a praise and love to God not to a bf nor a gf, but to him who died for your sins. So please listen to the song again, but this time don't think of your bf. Think of your father and king sitting on his throne! My love for God dsnt compare with no love! Thank you father!

    I loved this song I used a video of the skit for one of my lessons. It was so powerful and ever since I've seen the video I'm so addicted to the song cause its a constant reminder that regardless of where we are in our lives and whatever struggles we go through Jesus is always there for us and will pull us back to him and protect us and give us healing.

    I love this song so much, and I also love the skit to it. It's amazing, it makes me cry. The high school students at my school did the skit for us, and I got so into it. The skit is basically about this girl who is with Jesus. But things and people are seperating her from Him. And she is fighting the people to get to Jesus, and eventually she does! This song means that God is everything! ☺.
