I love Your faithfulness.

So today we’re going to rewind.

Rewind to this time last year. Exactly.

Life had been tough for a few years, but I had just entered perhaps the toughest season yet.

It was a hard week. A bit of a hopeless week.

And I sat at my piano, just singing out to God, and trying to find my strength in Him, and praying that He would restore my vision as only He could.

And I recorded my worship that night, because sometimes it’s good to remember what God says in those times of worship, or the way that Holy Spirit is moving and speaking.

And today I revisited the words from that evening, because a whole year has passed, and so much has changed, and there is a lot to be thankful for.

A whole lot I am so incredibly-wonderfully-thankful for.

 

I know what it’s like, I know what it’s like, to lay in the green grass, to rest in Your arms, to get wrapped up in grace.

As we sit beneath the mighty oak, we sit beneath the mighty oak, where nothing separates,

And I find myself hidden in the shadow of Your wings again,

Caught up in Your fountains.

And the rush of the river, I hear the rush of waters

It’s the water of life, it’s the water of Your Spirit.

And Jesus, You laugh again.

Jesus, You laugh again.

I find such joy. I find such peace.

And I find restoration in You as You hold me in Your arms of grace, hold me in Your arms of grace.

And under the tree of life, my Father of Lights He rides for me.

God, You are so beautiful.

Abba, You are so beautiful.

Jesus, I known I am found in You.

You take the broken pieces of my life.

The paper pieces of my life that are scattered from east to west

And You will restore them

You hold them.

You hold the wellspring of my life.

You hold the pieces of my heart.

You hold the paper bits that are torn, the paper bird that’s torn, and You make it fly again.

You make it fly again.

You breath Your life, Spirit of life, Spirit of life, Spirit that restores me again.

You restore my soul, You restore my soul, because in You I find healing from my sin.

In You I find mercy, in You I find mercy.

I’m all wrapped up in grace.

Father of grace, Father of mercy.

You hold me, beneath the mighty oak, You hold me in the shadow of Your wings, You hold me.

And I drink from You, I drink the cup of joy and received the anointing of Your Spirit.

Nothing else satisfies.

You are the keeper of my heart, the purifier of my soul.

In Your name, redemption is greater than perfection.

And I find that peace that passes understanding,

As I lean against You, under the mighty oak tree, in the green grass, by the mighty waters.

And at the same time, at the same time I’m in the desert, I’m in the desert,

Crying out for You, crying out for restoration.

Jesus, Abba, I know that You ride for me, I know that You ride for me.

I see the castle gates open and I see that You ride for me.

I know that sound, the shofar, to sound Your coming through the desert.

I’m waiting Daddy, I’m waiting, I’m holding on.

I’m holding on through the tears and through the pain.

Through the disillusionment, through the loneliness,

I’m holding on, and in the distance I hear Your voice, that’s carried on the breeze.

It’s carried on the breeze, the song of the throne room, the song of Your throne room.

The promise of redemption, the promise of perfection.

Perfection, not of my own merit, but perfection because I’m covered by Your blood.

Covered by the mighty blood.

The cup of wrath that You drank with my name on it, that You drank for my restoration.

I hear the trumpet sound, I hear the shofar, I hear the galloping of hoofs as You ride for Your beloved.

You ride for Your beloved.

Because You are my Judge, You are my King, You are the One who fights for me.

You are my Judge, You are my King, You are the One who fights, You fight for me Jesus.

You fight for me Jesus. You fight for me.

My spirit is hidden with You, under the mighty oak, caught up in the beauty realm, caught up in the beauty realm.

That’s where my spirit lives, that’s where my spirit lives.

And even now I’m in the desert, my heart feels like it’s in the desert,

But I hear the promises, I hear You whisper the promises, and I see the water, I’m found in the river.

And I dance in the river, my spirit can dance in the river.

Even though I’m in the desert, my spirit can dance in the river.

The beauty of Your grace, I get wrapped up in grace, wrapped up in grace.

And You restore me, You sustain me, You love me, You love me Daddy,

You love me Daddy, You love me Daddy, and I love You,

And I love You, and I’m Yours.

I’m Yours forever. You say I’m Yours forever. You say I’m Yours forever. You say I’m Yours forever.

Your eyes are on me, they’re ever on me.

I was made to sit at Your feet, to rest in Your arms. I was made to rest in Your fountains.

I was made to rest in You Jesus.

Because I love You, Restorer of my soul. I love You, Restorer of my soul.

This is my confession, that in every season of the soul, I love You and I trust You.

I trust Your Kingship. You’re the King I want. You’re the King I need. I trust Your Kingship.

You’re the King I want. You’re the King I need. You’re the King I want.

And I know Abba, that You ride for me. You ride for me.

I hear the shofar.

I know that the chains of slavery will fall forgotten to the ground.

Because when I’m in the Spirit-realm I rest in Your arms under the mighty oak tree.

And You whisper words of love under the oak tree.

And You whisper words of grace under the oak tree.

And Your light shines through, Father of lights.

You ride for me, Abba of lights.

Ride for me, Abba of lights.

Ride for me, ride for me, that my chains may fall forgotten to the ground.

I want to dance in Your throne room, twirl in Your throne room.

I want to dance with You in fields of wild flowers.

I want to dance with You again, I want to sing a new song again.

Jesus I love You, I love You, I love Your faithfulness.

I love You.

I love Your faithfulness.

I love You.

I love Your faithfulness.

I love Your faithfulness.
