It is all these years later today I researched for the lyrics to "Yaweh I know your are near"......to find the lyrics because the tune is a wonderful memory of when I sang it to my children.    I was reading Psalm 139 (my favorite) the words in the Scripture but I wanted the exact words written as Dan Schutte's gift to our world in this beautiful song.   I couldn't remember his name so thanks "guests who gave his name" I have always thanked God for his talents in music. 

God Bless All who sing this song!!!

I had sing this wonderful song when i was in grade 2 sometime in 1982, i first heard it in a church, Calasiao Church during a dawn mass when my grandmother died.

i am now 37 years old and whenever i sing this beautiful miraculous song, i can not help but cry. sing this song with all your heart and you can feel GOD is only besides you. I have a chronic insomia, i tried many sleeping pills, even bought them in the United States and Canada but still my insomia did not cure it. Then one day, its just open my mouth singing this song and so I started singing this song.

every night before i sleep i see to it i sang it then after awhile i fall asleep...

God is great.

When I did my charismatic renewal quite sometime ago there are two song my group would love to sing and they are Yaweh and Amazing Grace.  It is such a perfect match made by people who believe in god.

This was written post Vatican II when a misinterpretation resulted in Catholics believing it was ok to use the Tetragrammaton (the real name of God).

Unfortunately the Vatican has now clarified that YHWH cannot be used in any liturgy so this beautiful rendering of a psalm can't be sung at mass any more unless you replace YHWH with another word that describes God.

Pity we can't sing this song in church anymore. 

The Catholic Church banned using Gods Personal Name in liturgy. 
e.g. The letter to the Bishops Conferences on 'the name of God', Jun 29 2008.

The lyrics of course, are from Psalm 139.
