Doamne, ești mai scump ca argintul

Doamne, ești mai scump ca argintul,
Doamne, ești mai scump ca aurul.
Nu-i nimic în lume să îmi placă:
Tot ce vreau, Isuse, ești doar Tu!
Și cine poate măsura iubirea Ta,
Cine poate cântări ce-i drept
Și cine poate număra răbdarea Ta
Mila Ta întrece orice înțeles.

Versiunea Originală

More Precious than Silver Lord, You are more precious than silver. Lord, You are more costly than gold. Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds, And nothing I desire compares to You. Lord, Your Love is higher than mountains. Lord, Your Love is deeper than seas. Lord, Your Love encompasses the nations, And yet, You live right here inside of me! Who can weigh the value of knowing You? Who can judge the worth of who You are? Who can count the blessings of loving You? Who can say just how great You are? Lord, You are more precious than silver. Lord, You are more costly than gold. Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds, And nothing I desire compares to You. And nothing I desire compares to You.

Povestea din Spate (EN)

In her song, More Precious than Silver, Lynn DeShazo explores a number of elements created by God and considered of great value—silver, gold, diamonds—as well as those elements of nature created by Him to be seen as impressive in and of themselves.

But did you know the song came to be because of a French fry?

After graduating from Auburn University in 1978, Lynn DeShazo took a job at McDonald’s. One day, and while she was fasting, her manager put her on “fryer duty.” For anyone who has ever entered a McDonald’s completely full or ravenous, you know the power of a French fry. In a moment of weakness, Lynn did, too. In spite of her fast, she … shall we say … partook.

Worse than fighting the desire was the guilt of having eaten. When Lynn went to the Lord He met her with Colossians 2:3 and Proverbs 8:11, which reads:

…for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

A song was born. A song we can all relate to.
