Joining the Endless Alleluia

img_0501The song Endless Alleluia by Cory Asbury makes my heart ache … in all the right ways.

“In the morning when I rise to meet You
In the morning when I lift my eyes
You’re the only One I wanna cling to
You’re the first thought on my mind.”

You, Jesus~
Only You
You’re the One I want
You’re the One I need
You know what the day will hold
As I open my eyes
And lift them to Yours
May my soul be flooded with love and light
And may my heart filled with all this day requires

“In the moments where You go unnoticed
In the ordinary day to day
Countless miracles of life around us
Point like arrows to Your name”

Today, I want to be awake
I want to be aware
I want to be alive
To Your presence all around me
I want my life to testify of your goodness
And declare your glory

“In the evening when I lay my head down
In the evening when I close my eyes
You’re still the only One I wanna cling to
You’re the last thought on my mind”

You, Jesus~
Only You
You’re the One I want
You’re the One I need
Even through the night
Even as my body rests
May my spirit remain alert
And may my heart flourish in You

“Only a moment to live this life
Like shooting stars burning up the night
Till Heaven’s opened and we arrive
In Your presence, Lord
In Your presence, Lord

Let our voices rise
All creation cries
Singing out an endless alleluia
From this moment on
Join with Heaven’s song
Singing out an endless alleluia!”

Only a moment, Lord
Only a moment here and now
Only a moment to choose You
Only a moment to choose life
Only a moment to offer You a sacrifice of praise
Only a moment to join the endless alleluia…
On this side
Because soon
Very soon
We will arrive
We will be part of the heavenly chorus…
Eternally

So in this moment
I choose You, Jesus~
Only You
You’re the One I want
You’re the One I need
And there’s nothing better
Than this right now
