A tribute to one of my heroes

One of my musical heroes is Keith Green, a man who, in his short time on this earth, inspired thousands to sell out completely for Jesus. The man was an amazing piano player and singer, and even though much of his music is fairly dated, the messages remain timeless. Two of his songs have always spoken directly to me, especially in times when I’ve found myself growing cool spiritually. The songs are extremely simple, yet so powerful. Here they are:

“Create In Me a Clean Heart”
by Keith Green

Create in me a clean heart oh God
And renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from thy presence oh Lord
And take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me.

“Oh Lord You’re Beautiful”
by Keith Green

Oh Lord, You’re beautiful
Your face is all I see
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me

Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clean
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear

I want to take Your Word and shine it all around
But first help me just to live it, Lord
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You
