Taking It Deeper


I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know at His right hand
Stands one who is my Savior  
I take Him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me; this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my savior
That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior  
Chorus (2x’s)  
My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior’s always there for me
My God: He was, my God; He is
My God is always gonna be
Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior
That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior
Chorus (2x’s)
Chorus: (2x’s)
My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior loves, My Savior lives


  • Next time you look at a flower, think about this (that) song.
  • Think about how that rose or petunia or mum didn’t start out in the glorious manner that it is now.
  • It started small.   Contained.   As a seed.
  • It wasn’t until the seed died, that the flower lived.
  • So every time you see a flower, remember this basic truth in life:
  • We often have to die to things in our lives to truly live, just like the song says:
  • He who lived to be a King - once died to be my Savior.


  • I think about the Best Man at a wedding when I hear this (that) song.
  • Especially when it says “I only know at His right hand, stands one to be my Savior”
  • The Best Man stands with the groom.   To support Him.   Hold him up.   Have his back.   So does the Maid or Matron of Honor for the bride.
  • There’s a chance that you may need someone to help hold you up today, and if a friend’s not available, your Savior always is.
  • We are too.   Call us if you need someone to pray with you.


  • Have you ever watched “Curling” at the Winter Olympics?
  • I think it wins the honor for “strangest looking sport.”
  • What we don’t know is that every movement of the tossers and the sweepers are choreographed to deliver the “curling iron” or what ever it’s called to a specific place.
  • This (That) song says these words:   “You count it strange, so once did I, before I knew my Savior.”
  • To the world, Christians live in strange ways, with strange customs and habits.
  • But once you know the Savior, then everything starts to make sense.
  • It’s like learning the rules of “Curling.”   Once you do, it all becomes clear.
  • We can help you find that Savior, especially if you identify with another lyric of this (that) song.   The one that says: “in my heart I find a need.”
