Hi Teejay,

Do you have a recording by any chance? I have always wanted to visit the Philippines, but never got the chance. Until then, I would love to put a link to it here.

God bless!

Me too! Used this when I was worship leader decades ago, but had lost track of my copy of the words. What a blessing that someone finally put it on the web where I could find it! May God bless you exponentially for this blessing to me and apparently a lot of others! Felicity, on Maui

This song is sung frequently at "Walk to Emmaus" gatherings. It is one of the favorites and most requested.

A lot of the most popular hymns requested on this site, including this one, can be heard here:

Just scroll to the very bottom, and navigate to the very last video. You'll hear a very nice version of You Are Near.

God bless,

Interestingly, the Vatican has just prohibited the use of songs and hymns with the Hebrew name of God ( Yah___). So, if the song has a use in a Catholic setting, it may need to be changed. What is a good substitute?  "Father"?

The appropriate word to use when reading or singing the Tetragrammaton, as is made very clear in the statement by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, is "Lord".

It amazes me that people gush about how much they love this "song", and pay so little attention to the inspired psalm (Psalm 139) of which it is only a poor paraphrase..
