Christless, theology-free “worship” song du jour

Apart from the capitalized pronouns, there’s about as much Jesus in this song as there is in Joseph of Arimathea’s tomb. Sometimes, you gotta wonder how these sappy torch songs actually get into the repertoire of a church.

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 could 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
