Love Reigns

Still the sky
His reign endures forever Yet even now hearts crack open wide Lives crack open wide Minds crack open wide To receive the depth and breadth of His great Love
Can you see it? Can you perceive it? It surrounds you Envelopes you Lifts you Fills you Saves you Redeems you
His reign falls It overtakes It breeches It fills hearts Fills lives Fills minds Cleansing everything in Its path
His Love reigns And fills our hearts Fills our lives Fills our minds Overflows unto our world Calls us to a new place A new way
