“Forever Reign”

This song has been around for a year, but I heard it for the first time at a Women of Faith event last weekend.

The words grabbed my heart. And haven’t let go since.
It’s my new favorite song.

It speaks truths about God. He is:
     Good. Love. Light. Hope.
     Peace. True. Joy. Life.
     More. Lord. Here. God.

What more could we want?
Nothing compares. Run to Him.

LYRICS

You are good, You are good
When there's nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You're the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

     CHORUS:
Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I'm made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I'm letting go

     CHORUS

     BRIDGE:
My heart will sing
No other name
Jesus, Jesus
   

     CHORUS

Michelle,
So I’m not the only one who hadn’t heard this song. Isn’t it wonderful?

I hope you can get to go to a WoF conference next year. I plan on going again if I can. Maybe we’ll meet!

We sing this at The Rock all the time, Lisa! One of my absolute FAVES. "The riches of your love will always be enough"... always gets me.
