Pour Me Out

I learned a beautiful worship song in college that went like this. “Pour me out, as a drink offering. Lord, I come as a sacrifice. Pour me out, as a drink offering. Lord, I come to die.” It was such a beautiful song, and even though I haven’t heard it sung anywhere else since then, it’s stuck with me.

But I wonder, is that the cry of my heart?

Do I live my life as a sacrifice? Is it my desire to praise God with all of my life, even when it means giving up my life?

It’s one thing to sing a beautiful song, and to have an emotional experience because of a song or because of a church service, but it’s quite another thing to live it out day after day.

God isn’t calling us to go through the motions, or even to have some emotions, but to live as a sacrifice of praise to Him.

From the sermon, “Living as a Sacrifice of Praise,” delivered June 23, 2013.

  1. We sung that song in high school in the very early 2000’s. (Seneca, Mo.) I’m still trying to find the author of that song. Let me know if you have the slightest idea. 🙂 such a great song!

  2. That would have been about the same time as I heard it in college: the early 2000’s. I don’t have any idea who wrote it, but it’s a great song!

  3. I just found your blog through searching for these lyrics 🙂 I thought the song was sung by Jonas, a small Christian praise band at the time. Does that sound familiar?

  4. Yes! It was a small band in MO called Jonas, I have their CD still, somewhere. They also sang, “I just wanna love you Lord” and many other good original songs!
