Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

What fortune lies beyond the stars

Those dazzling heights too vast to climb

I got so high to fall so far

But I found heaven as love swept low

 

My heart beating

My soul breathing

I found my life

When I laid it down

Upward falling

Spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

 

What treasure waits within Your scars

The gift of freedom gold can't buy

I bought the world and sold my heart

You traded heaven to have me again

 

My heart beating

My soul breathing

I found my life

When I laid it down

Upward falling

Spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

 

Find me here at your feet again

Everything I am

Reaching out

I surrender come sweep me up in

Your love again and my soul will dance on the

Wings of Forever

 

Find me here at your feet again

Everything I am

Reaching out

I surrender come sweep me up in

Your love again and my soul will dance on the

Wings of Forever

 

My heart beating

My soul breathing

I found my life

When I laid it down

Upward falling

Spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

 

My heart beating

My soul breathing

I found my life

When I laid it down

Upward falling

Spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

 

Find me here at your feet again

Everything I am

Reaching out

I surrender come sweep me up in

Your love again and my soul will dance on the

Wings of Forever

 

Upward falling

Spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

When we hold on to small things, we have a small impact; but if we let go, God can give us something much larger.  Do you need to let go of something here on earth, so that you can reach higher?

Ephesians 3:14–21 (ESV) A Prayer for Spiritual Strength from Paul

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,  from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,  that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,  and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

One Response so far.

  1. Out West, especially in the “Big Sky” country of Montana, there seems to no boundary between the earth and the sky. The vast vistas lead to the optical illusion that the earth and sky are joined together. When we reach out to God in prayer, not only are there no boundaries between us, we are joined together in love- and that is no illusion. Here is Hillsong United with “Touch the Sky”. RM
