PKV sings 'Who Am I?'

In 2003, a fledgling band called Casting Crowns released a song called 'Who Am I?'

In 2008, a few fledgling Christian undergraduates in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, performed that song at a Christian Fellowship meeting.

At that time I recorded it at a low-definition setting on my camera, just for fun. But now, some 17 months later, looking back at the video really makes me think a lot about how time changes us.

Who Am I?
Sung by members of Persaudaraan Kristian Varsiti UM

Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.

Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Who am I?
That the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again.

Who am I?
That the voice that calmed the sea,
Would call out through the rain,
And calm the storm in me.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.

* * * * *

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.

Here's to the PKV seniors who have graduated over the years, those of you who were 'here today and gone tomorrow' in the short span of time we spend in a place called university.

Your effort and ministry were not in vain. Praise God.
