SONG OF THE WEEK: Deep Enough to Dream by Chris Rice

Nobody writes lyrics like Chris Rice.  His songs push my mind to deeper thoughts of God.  That’s a good thing.  This song is about the sweetness of dreaming of seeing Christ face to face.  I love the way this song pushes me to drift past the stress and struggles of today into the glory of life eternal.

Lazy summer afternoon
Screened in porch and nothin’ to do
I just kicked off my tennis shoes
Slouchin’ in a plastic chair
Rakin’ my fingers through my hair
I close my eyes and I leave them there
And I yawn, and sigh, and slowly fade away

Deep enough to dream in brilliant colors
I have never seen
Deep enough to join a billion people
For a wedding feast
Deep enough to reach out and touch
The face of the One who made me
And oh, the love I feel, and oh the peace
Do I ever have to wake up

A piece of me feels irresponsible leaving my to-do list and slipping into this song.  But in the rolling melody and poignant lyrics I begin to find that peaceful place that exists only when I am with Jesus.  Take Chris’ advice and close you eyes, play the song and absorb the glory of all Christ has prepared for you.  You deserve it.
