Wednesday Is for Worship: “Forever Reign”

It’s almost 3:00p, but Wednesday isn’t over yet.  Let’s turn our thoughts to worship with a simple but powerful song called “Forever Reign.”

Written in 2009 by Jason Ingram and Reuben Morgan and published through Hillsong Music, I first worshiped the Lord with this song at the Connect worship time at my son’s school co-op under the leadership of Hunter Sparkman.  My heart has loved it from the first time!

“Forever Reign” is great mix of the subjective (feeling-based) and objective (fact-based) realities of worship.  It contains all of the objective facts that God is good, love, light, hope, peace, true, joy, life, Lord, and the ultimate reality (God).  These truths give rise to the subjective feelings of wanting to run into the Lord’s arms.  There is truth, and there overflowing love toward the Lord and desire for the Lord and extolling of the Lord.  These truths lead the heart to sing “Jesus!!”

May that be your heart’s song today as you join the Hillsong band!

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 it’s sting

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

My heart will sing
No other Name
Jesus, Jesus
