Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

There's nothing worth more

That could ever come close

No thing can compare

You're our living hope

Your presence, Lord

 

I've tasted and seen

Of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free

And my shame is undone

Your presence, Lord

 

CHORUS

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by Your presence, Lord

 

There's nothing worth more

That could ever come close

No thing can compare

You're our living hope

Your presence, Lord

 

I've tasted and seen

Of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free

And my shame is undone

Your presence, Lord

 

CHORUS

 

Let us become more aware of Your presence

Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

TID-bits

I didn’t have to teach my kids that they should get something when I come back from a big trip.  It seemed to be ingrained in their minds.  The first time I went on an airplane trip when my son was of the age where he was finally walking and talking I was greeted at the door with “Whatd’ya bring me?”

Of course, I had something for him.  It’s what most Dad’s do - or at least should.  You open up your arms and give a gift.

I picture that the Holy Spirit is the gift that our Dad has given us.  Jesus said He was going away, but His Father - our Father - was giving us the Holy Spirit to be our advocate, comforter, and our guide.

I have to admit that when I was a child, I liked seeing my dad come through the door, but I really liked the gift.  Meditate on the gift of the Holy Spirit as you hear the words of this song that say “Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for, to be overcome by Your presence, Lord.”

Because the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are one, and as you long for one, you long for all of them.

  • There are plenty of things that I’m worried about.
  • So there’s a line in this song that I really love…
  • It says “I’ve tasted and seen of the sweetest of loves, where my heart becomes free, and my shame is undone…your presence, Lord.
  • That’s my reminder that I can go to Him, be in His presence, and free my heart from the worries I have.
