Below you will find the set list from August 24 as well as some other resources. This week at "The Creek" we sang a newer song from Hillsong called Forever Reign.

Behind the Music

This week we sang a new-to-our-church song called "Forever Reign" from Hillsong. This song has a simple melody and simple lyrics, yet the truth that it proclaims resonates deep within the heart of man. This is a song that puts Jesus on display as the forever king and the satisfier of our souls. As humans, we long for a peace that will not exist in this present life--a peace that is described in Revelation 21:3-4:

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’  or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

This peace will only happen when Christ takes his rightful position as king. I love singing songs that remind us of Jesus' position because many times in this world it is easy to think that somehow Jesus isn't in control. Ferguson, ISIS, The Gaza Strip, Ebola, Ukraine...you get the point. However, Scripture combats our tendency to lose prospective and remind us that, as Saint Augustine says so well, "Our heart is restless until it rests in you." 

Make sure to check out the fantastic lyrics (below) and the original artists performing the song (above).

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 its 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

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

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I'm running to Your arms
I'm running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
