MP3: For This One Pearl

For This One Pearl

Words & Music

Dennis Jernigan

September 13, 1989

 

This song was born during a very trying time in my life. Having just been sharing my story publicly since July of 1988, the political climate was changing swiftly, making my story all the more unpopular and politically incorrect. I had to come to a place of freedom. That place was the Truth of God’s Word. Jesus saw me as the pearl of great price. His great love for me led me to the place of freedom concerning my identity. I needed to see Him as worth my entire being and existence, seeing Him as my pearl of great price. This song is that declaration of what Jesus is worth to me. He is worth dying for.

Dennis Jernigan

 

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.”

Jesus

 

Matthew 13:44-46 NASB

Verse

Like a man who is searching

For that one pot of gold

My heart is now seeking a treasure to hold

Like a man who is searching

For that one perfect pearl

Who when has found it

Forsakes the whole world

For this one pearl

 

Chorus

All I have is Yours

Jesus, my Lord, I am Yours!

You are my heart’s priceless treasure

Worth so much more than this world

All I have is Yours!

Jesus, my Lord, I am Yours

You are my heart’s priceless treasure

And I’m forsaking this world

For this one pearl

 

Verse

Like a man who’s tasted freedom

Who will not be bound again

Whatever it’s costing

Living or dying, I win

Like a man who is running

In a race for the prize

Though I fall I will get up keep running

Toward where I’m fixing my eyes

On Jesus Christ 

 

Chorus

All I have is Yours

Jesus, my Lord, I am Yours!

You are my heart’s priceless treasure

Worth so much more than this world

All I have is Yours!

Jesus, my Lord, I am Yours

You are my heart’s priceless treasure

And I’m forsaking this world

For this one pearl
