Before Keith Green died at the age of 28 in a plane crash in east Texas, he penned dozens of hit songs and contemporary hymns. Green owned and rented seven houses in one neighborhood where he took in people in need, including former prostitutes, drug addicts, bikers, single moms, and homeless people.
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.
