A Little Longer

Words and Music - Jenn Johnson

What can I do for You?
What can I bring to You?
What kind of song would you like me to sing?

'Cause I'll dance a dance for You
Pour out my love to You
What can I do for You beautiful king?

'Cause I... can't thank You enough.
I can't thank You enough
What can I do for You?
What can I bring to You?
What kind of song would you like me to sing?

'Cause I'll dance a dance for You
Pour out my love to You
What can I do for You beautiful king?

'Cause I... can't thank You enough.
I can't thank You enough
All of the words that I find... and I can't thank You enough.
No matter I try... I can't thank You enough.
Then I hear You sing to me

"you... don't have to do a thing
Just simply be with me and let those things go
'Cause they can wait another minute

Wait... this moment is too sweet
Would you please stay here with Me
And love on Me a little longer"

I hear You say...
"You... don't have to do a thing
Just simply be with me and let those things go
'Cause they can wait another minute

Wait... this moment is too sweet
Would you please stay here with Me
And love on Me a little longer
I'd love to be with you a little longer
'Cause I'm in love with you

Brain and Jenn Johnson

Brian and Jenn Johnson are some of my favorite worship leaders. Jenn wrote this song, I believe, in 2003, and I happened to be at a conference, shortly thereafter, where they were leading worship. This was my first exposure to their worship and I immediately fell in love with this song.

When they led it, the words on the screen, when it comes to the line - let those things go, the screen flashed many of the mundane chores of the day, that we would be leaving our time with the Lord for. I was so moved by this idea. That the Lord just wanted to spend time with us. It was not about achieving some Quiet time goals, it was about spending time with the Lover of our Souls. You can hear Jenn sing this herself at the link below.

    Beautiful, brother Ben! The spontaneous moments of worship/praise and communion with Jesus are my favorites--to be so "caught off guard" with Him, it still fascinates me!! (Since this is still a fairly recent experience for me, I sometimes can't believe it--wonder if I've lost my mind. Nope, I'm lost in real love.) God bless you--love, sis Caddo
