Boys,

your dad has a favorite musical artist named Phil Wickham. I have to listen to him by default, but I've come to truly appreciate the purity and sincerity of his lyrics. Here is one of his songs entitled "Cielo" off his "Heaven and Earth" album.



I'm walking through the bright white gates
breathing in and out your grace
all around me melodies rise
that echo with the joy inside
so i start to sing

but i can't sing loud enough
i can't sing loud enough
when i'm singing for You my God
i can't sing loud enough
i can't sing loud enough
when i'm singing for You my God

with a thunder roll and a brilliant light
your glory boasts and the heavens shine
the saints and angels stand in awe
captured by the beauty of it all
so i fall to my knees

but i can't bow low enough
i can't bow low enough
at the vision of You my God
i can't bow low enough
i can't bow low enough
at the vision of You my God
i can't hold it all inside

i'm reaching for the One who brought me out of death and into life
but i can't lift my hands high enough
lift my hands high enough
when i'm reaching for You my God

i can't lift my hands high enough
lift my hands high enough
when i'm reaching for You my God
oh i'm reaching for You my God
i'm reaching for You
i'm reaching for You
i'm reaching for You my God


My favorite line is "I can't bow low enough..." I think about how Good and Pure and Holy Jesus is, and when I see Him face to face, I won't be able to bow low enough in reverence and gratitude to Him. I bow with my heart and my life.
