Everything I Possess

All I want is to know and love my Lord, and to feel in my heart the power of Jesus' love. v 1 To share in his suffering, like him in his death, to live deep within the hope we rise with him. v 2 To do this I throw away everything I possess, all treasure is worth the price of loving him
This song by Australian Fr Frank Andersen is based on Philippians 3:8-11.   It was the original title-track of a collection published in 1982, which was later renamed Galilee Song.

It is included in the Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC collection, which is still available.  The music-books for both of these collections include lead-sheet style sheet music.

It is also included on the Galilee Song recording, but at the time of writing there are no examples available on YouTube.

The unnamed tune was written by Fr Andersen.  It is in a major key, and has a 4/4 time signature.  The first few notes in the key of E are E_ E F E_E EE F G A G F.



The lyrics are copyright, and cannot be reproduced here. The song has six verses, with the tune alternating between verses - and the first verse repeated at the end.  A rough outline over the verses is below - and the full version is currently found in this newsletter.
All I want is to know and love my Lord,
And to feel in my heart the power of Jesus' love.

1 To share in his suffering ...

2 To do this I throw away ...
