Essential Songs: You Won’t Relent by Misty Edwards

misty edwards praise

Misty Edwards is a worship leader and pastor of sorts for The International House Of Prayer in Kansas City.  She has been writing and recording music for almost 10 years now, and in most circles is considered one of the best worship leaders of our generation (along side names like Jason Upton and David Crowder).  She remains humble in the midst of her success, and still manages to fly some where under the radar so she can focus more on her ministry duties for IHOPKC.

Misty Edwards has this to say about her life:
“I have a great desire to see the knowledge of God flood this generation. I mean the real knowledge of God, not the distant Sunday School version but the true encounter with the Uncreated. I have devoted my life to searching Him out through His Word, prayer and fasting, and to ask Him to reveal Himself in my day and time. There’s no other point for my existence but to touch the Transcendent. I believe that this is the generation who will usher in the Son of Man as we intercede from our highest identity as a Bride crying out, ” Come!” unsatisfied with anything less than Him. As Eternity breaks in we will awaken the Dawn with a song and the Morning Star will rise to have His inheritance on this planet! This is all I care about.”

The song “You Won’t Relent” is perfect example of her writing style. It is a crushing worship song with tons build and emotion, and is a simple acknowledgment of God’s desire to have all of us in our worship and in our lives.

The video below is taken from the opening session of the OneThing Conference in Kansas City, and there is a small bit of another one of Misty‘s songs called “All Consuming Fire” at the end of the video.

You won’t relent
Until You have it all
My heart is Yours

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one

Speak Your Mind
