Simple Gospel by United Pursuit #Inspiration #Worship

United Pursuit is one of my favorite “worship” bands. I make a caveat that they are a “worship” band because their style is spontaneous worship. There is a song, set lyrics, but it is not uncommon for their songs to go off script, following the leading of the Holy Spirit.

One of my favorite songs of theirs from a few years back is “Simple Gospel.” It is the title track of their album, “Simple Gospel” available for download on Amazon.

Watch the song performed above and you’ll get an idea of what I mean by spontaneous worship.


“Simple Gospel” lyrics by United Pursuit:

I want to know You, Lord
Like I know a friend
I want to know You, Lord
I want to know You, Lord
Like I know a friend
I want to know You, Lord

So I’m laying down all my religion
I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord
I’m laying down all my religion
I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord

I used to think that I could box You in
But I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord
I use to think that I could box You in
But I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord

I’m laying down all my religion
I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord
I’m laying down all my religion
I’m laying down
I want to know You, Lord
I want to know You, Lord

Lord, I’ve been told to be ashamed
Lord, I’ve been told I don’t measure up
Lord, I’ve been told I’m not good enough
But You’re here with me

And I reach out and You find me in the dust
You say no amount of untruths can separate us
I reach out, I reach out and You find me in the dust
And You say no amount of untruths can separate us
I reach out, oh, I reach out and You find me in the dust
And You say no amount of untruths can separate us, ooh

I will rejoice in the simple gospel
I will rejoice in You, Lord
I will rejoice in the simple gospel
I will rejoice in You, Lord
I will rejoice in the simple gospel
I will rejoice in You, Lord

And I reach out and You find me in the dust
You say no amount of untruths can separate us

I will rejoice, I will rejoice in the simple gospel
I will rejoice in You, Lord
I will rejoice in the simple gospel
And I will rejoice in You, Lord

Songwriters: Will Reagan / Brock Human
