I Love You Lord (Greater Than Anything)



Really love this song a lot. The melody is just so beautiful. It's quite unknown though surprisingly as searching it in Google reveals very little hits. Hope this video can let more people hear this song!

Key F (transposed to G in final verse)

F (G)
I love You, Lord
Gm (Am)
Greater than anything
C (D)
I love You, Lord
Bb (C) F (G)
More than my heart could sing
Dm (Em)
I love You, Lord
Am (Bm) Dm (Em)
More than I love myself
Gm (Am)
I love You Lord
C (D)
I love You Lord
F (G)
I love You Lord

I worship You
High above everything
I worship You
With all that my heart could sing
I worship You
O let my life give praise
I worship You (3x)

I lift my hands
I am a sacrifice
I lift my hands
My body and soul a prize
I lift my hands
All that I am is Yours
I lift my hands (3x)

Allelujah, this is my song of praise
Allelujah, I'll worship You all my days
Allelujah, all that I am is Yours
Allelujah (3x)

Hi Alan,

Thanks for posts, keep them coming!

I thought I'd just like to correct some of the lyrics for "I Love You Lord" which was written by my Pastor, Fini de Gersigny over 15 years ago in South Africa.

I love You, Lord
Greater than anything
I love You, Lord
More than my heart can sing
I love You, Lord
More than I love myself
I love You Lord x3

I worship You
High above everything
I worship You
Oh that my heart would sing
I worship You
Oh let my life give praise
I worship You (3x)

I lift my hands
I am a sacrifice
I lift my hands
My body and soul the price
I lift my hands
All that I am is Yours
I lift my hands (3x)

Hallelujah, this is my song of praise
Hallelujah, I'll worship You all my days
Hallelujah, all that I am is Yours
Hallelujah (3x)

If you'd like, I have an mp3 of it
Here.


Cheers,
Reuben

wow, thanks for putting up the actual. it's quite hard to find the lyrics to this really beautiful song.

Reuben said...

No worries, it was funny because Fini just called me as i was sending you the chords... He then told me he wrote the song in half an hour as it just came to him one day at a friend's house.

What a great song isn't it? He was so surprised when I told him it's quite a popular song in asia

i lost my niece end of last year and i couldnt seem to come to terms with it, she had cancer and was only 3 years old. i really felt God had abandoned us, we prayed and fasted day n night and she still died. deep down i knew it was for the best because she was in so much pain, but still the God who spoke to bones and they came to life, should have done the same for her. it really hurt...n then other day i came across this song..especially the third stanza when it says "lift my hands, i am a sacrifice, i lift my hands, my body and soul the price..." n i knew that is what i should do. lift my hands, give him my all, tell him am hurting but this is my song of praise for all the good he did when she was alive and that she is in a better place. like Leonel says let us focus on him, the beginner n finisher of our faith!!

ngyahloon said...

mesarf, I'm sorry about your loss. I have no answers when these things happen. I have gone through many lows before myself and I do know that the Lord will never shortchange us. I just have to patiently wait for Him. It's not easy but I pray that the Lord will continue to guide us all, slowly and surely in His time. Take care and God bless!

Hi everybody

I come from Madagascar. I really searching this song since many years when I heard this at first in radio.
I didn't know the tiitle , I supposed it like "Hallelujah" but I had a wrong artist name as "Peter Nielsen". So I was trying to seek this song by hearing many tittles in gospel heading sites but nothing.

Today, a friend listen some music from his PC and I recognize the favorite song. I immedietely stand up from my chair and get the right tittle and name artist to get the information on web.

I Love You Lord to let me rediscover this magnify song.

well i live in Guyana. NOT GHANA. Guyana is the only english speaking country on the continent of South America. over 10 years ago a Psalmist came to my church with her her Apostle (who travels to a lot of places, especially Africa so i guess thats how she got a hold of it) n sang this song. i was on the keyboard trying to follow her and by the end of the first verse not only did i get the melody, but the Anointing of the Lord rushed into this church. id never forget it. since then ive been lookin for the words and music. glad i found it. can somebody email me the mp3? flipstar592@yahoo.com and also i wann sing it on my next album. id like to get into contact with Pastor Fini to get his permission.
Blessings

The first time I heard this song sung was years ago in His People, South Africa by guy that I now remember sounded something like Louis Armstrong. It was awesome. I wish I can get a recording of that. Thanks for this post. It looks to be the only thread to this great song.
