SONG OF THE WEEK: You are I AM by Mercy Me

The longer I walk this Christian walk the more I realize that it all comes back to “who?”   The way to cope with the joys and the sorrows is to remember “who” God is.  Mercy Me has given us an extraordinary gift in You Are I Am.  It resonates with the need in me to acknowledge all I know and all I do not know about my risen Lord.

I’ve been the one

To shake with fear
And wonder if
You’re even here

I’ve been the one
To doubt Your love
I’ve told myself
You’re not enough
I’ve been the one
To try and say
I’ll overcome
By my own strength
I’ve been the one
To fall apart
And start to question
Who You are
You’re the One who conquers giants
You’re the One who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the One who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the One Messiah
You are I Am

I’ve been the one
Held down in chains
Beneath the weight
Of all my shame

I’ve been the one
To believe
That where I am
You cannot reach

(Chorus)
The veil is torn
And now I live
With the Spirit inside
The same One
The very same One
Who brought the Son
Back to life
Hallelujah, He lives in me
