Singin' on a Sunday

I heard a song this morning for the first time and haven't been able to stop singing it since! The lyrics are so powerful and I want to share them with you.



You thought of us before the world began to breathe
You knew our names before we came to be
You saw the very day we fall away from you
And how desperately we need to be redeemed

Lord Jesus
Come lead us
We're desperate for your touch

Oh great and mighty One
With one desire we come
That You would reign that You would reign in us
We're offering up our lives
A living sacrifice
That You would reign that You would reign in us

Spirit of the living God fall fresh again
Come search our hearts and purify our lives
We need Your perfect love; we need Your discipline
We're lost unless You guide us with your light

Lord Jesus
Come lead us
We're desperate for your touch


Oh great and mighty One
With one desire we come
That You would reign that You would reign in us
We're offering up our lives
A living sacrifice
That You would reign that You would reign in us


We cry out for Your life to revive us, cry out
For Your love to define us, cry out
For Your mercy to keep us
Blameless until You return

Oh great and mighty One
With one desire we come
That You would reign that You would reign in us
We're offering up our lives
A living sacrifice
That You would reign that You would reign in us


(Repeat)


So reign, please reign in us
Come purify our hearts
We need Your touch
Come cleanse us like a flood
And set us out
So the world may know You reign, You reign in us


Singing this song as a church this morning brought out the crybaby tender heart in me; it felt like a corporate prayer and a heartfelt request.

I hope you find it as meaningful as I did... And I really hope you're humming it as much as I am, if only so I know someone's joining me in my solo Sunday singin'.

Hope your Sunday's been wonderful!

LOVE this song! I heard it at Elevation church while in Charlotte last year. I had to download it from itunes asap afterwards. :) It was on repeat for a solid month!
