Give Me One Pure and Holy Passion

Mark Altrogge, 1988

Verse 1
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life

To know and follow hard after You.
To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in Your truth

This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Oh lead me on, I will run after You
Oh lead me on, I will run after You.

Verse 2
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life

To know and follow hard after You.
To know and follow hard after You
To grow as Your disciple in Your truth

This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Oh lead me on, I will run after You
Oh lead me on, I will run after You.
