Tot ce-aveam mai bun

Tot ce-aveam mai bun pe acest pământ
Era doar un fum, purtat de vânt.
Toate le-am pierdut, dar nu-mi pare rău
Că Te-am cunoscut pe Tine.
Să Te am pe Tine, Isus,
Nimic nu-i mai măreț.
Tu ești bun, Cel mai bun,
Tu ești bucuria mea
Și eu Te iubesc!
Vreau să Te cunosc, tot mai mult, Isus,
Să mă pot numi copil al Tău.
Să primesc în dar, tot ce-aș vrea să am,
Să trăiesc prin Har iubirea Ta.
Vin acum smerit la crucea Ta,
De jertfa-Ți grea să-mi amintesc.
Vreau să mor și eu prin moartea Ta
Și-nviat apoi vreau să trăiesc.

Versiunea Originală

Knowing You

All I once held dear, built my life upon
All this world reveres, and wars to own
All I once thought gain I have counted loss
Spent and worthless now, compared to this

Knowing you, Jesus
Knowing you, there is no greater thing
You're my all, you're the best
You're my joy, my righteousness
And I love you, Lord

Now my heart's desire is to know you more
To be found in you and known as yours
To possess by faith what I could not earn
[ From: ]
All-surpassing gift of righteousness

Oh, to know the power of your risen life
And to know You in Your sufferings
To become like you in your death, my Lord
So with you to live and never die

Povestea din Spate (EN)

A major Christian conference in the UK had circulated a number of songwriters asking them to consider writing specific material to accompany the Bible readings and teaching at their event the following year. The book of Philippians had been chosen, so in order to begin the process of seeking inspiration I began to read through the book meditatively, asking God to draw my attention to anything which might become the seed of a song. I had come to the famous passage where Paul lists his impressive qualifications, and then dramatically sweeps them all aside for the sake of one supreme aim - to know Christ.

At this point my heart was stirred by the theme of knowing Jesus, and in an attempt to make it a personal song directed to him, I began to experiment with the phrase 'knowing you' as the moment of release of the song. Having written the chorus I set out to paraphrase the key verses of the scripture text into a singable form. This is always a great challenge because of course no translation of the Bible rhymes and scans, and there is always a danger that in shaping a lyrical form something is lost. After all this is the Word of God that we are dealing with!

Eventually, and with some editing input from one of our church leaders, plus some private 'road testing'at my home church, the song was finished. I know of several people who have learned the song without realising where it is derived from and have commented "Graham, I found your song in the bible!".

For me one of the most important things about it is the theme of sharing in Christ's sufferings (in the third verse), and of dying and rising with Christ. Perhaps for this reason the song has featured at funerals as well as in regular worship services. It has found its way into wedding services too where couples wish to express their commitment to putting Christ first in their marriage. 'Knowing You' has rapidly risen to be one of the most popular songs in the UK churches, at one time reaching number 5 in the CCLI chart.
