to know Your love

overlooking oceans

I look into Your face my King

blinded here my soul can see

You’re beautiful

so beautiful


my God who should be out of reach

comes close

and I can hear Him breathe

feel the ground shake

in majesty

watch Him entreat the oceans deep

to move and sleep because He speaks

a word


that’s all He needs

to tilt the stars and empty the seas

my God sits undaunted

a mighty King

with power and strength that exceeds

every fleet


reaching for me

You reach for me


uncanny but I can’t let go

a paradox but yet I know

I need You to keep reaching

like You always do


You find me here

and I find you close


be the arms that hold me

like it’s the first time

You picked me up

and I’ll pour out my love on You

like it’s the last time I can

feel Your touch


My Jesus

I live to know Your love
