I’ve long been a huge fan of Rich Mullins … I recorded “I See You” as a duet with my friend Jaime Thietten, and I’m attaching a bootleg recording from an embarrassing night in Tennessee when I massacred the song. Jaime was with me and she handled the debacle with grace, but still …
I love how this simple song invites us to seek God’s will for our lives; Rich’s lyric suggests that – as we read in Romans 1:20 and Psalm 19 – all of creation proclaims the existence of God. But we are not left with generalities; He has further revealed Himself through Christ and through His Word, The Bible. And in His Word, we are given an astonishingly clear picture of what it looks like to walk in the will of God.
Well the grass will die / And the flowers fall
But Your Word’s alive / And it will be after all
And everywhere I go, I see You
I, for one, plan to keep my eyes peeled …
P.S. Whenever we can, Jaime Thietten and I try to team up for concerts. Not long ago I did a show in Nashville and invited Jaime to join me for our duet of “I See You“. It turned out to be the second time that I COMPLETELY SCREWED UP the song. And because I apparently have no shame, I’m attaching a bootleg recording from that embarrassing night so that you can hear the huge mistake and recovery followed by “You Are My King” and “Act of Surrender”…[slidepress gallery=’everywhere-i-go-i-see-you-post’]
