Songs & Such: Beyond Measure by Jeremy Camp

Praise and worship has a reputation for being cheesy and I as such, I do not like most praise and worship. I like people that do praise and worship music to take chances with the songs, change them up, try new things. If a someone who is doing praise and worship music can write original tunes that serve that purpose, then more power to them. Thankfully Jeremy Camp is one of those people. He flat out rocks at the right moments and can be mellow during the other moments. He knows when to do what style and makes it all work.

This week’s song is entitled “Beyond Measure” and it is from the album of the same title. It is a more mellow song, but that does not mean it is without its passion. This is one of those songs that hits me at my core and stays with me long after I have heard the tune. It is a song of thankfulness about all that one has in life and how that is more then we should be allowed. It is a song about grace as well in that we are “given more than beyond measure” in our lives, most of the time.

“Beyond Measure”
by Jeremy Camp
From the Album Beyond Measure

The fog has finally cleared to see,
The beautiful life you’ve given me
To feel the breeze of my newborn’s gentle breath
With one to walk hand in hand,
To share this life that you have planned
It’s like a storybook with dreams
That are meant to see every next step is an extraordinary scene

[CHORUS]
I know that I’ve been,
Given more than beyond measure,
I come alive when,
I see beyond my fears
I know that I’ve been given more than earthly treasure,
I come alive when
I’ve broken down and given you control

I’ve faced a great tragedy,
But have seen the works of what you bring
A display of faith that you give,
I don’t know if I will ever understand
The depth of what it is you’ve done inside,
But I know that I will won’t find any worth apart from you

[CHORUS]

Everything that I have
Has been given so unselfishly
And shown that even when I don’t deserve
You always show the fullness of your love

[CHORUS] (x2)
