Forever Reign



We've played this song a couple of times now at church. I love how it has so much truth in it and helps fix our gaze on our Saviour (by saying "You are... You are...) rather than looking to ourselves. An immensely memorable tune and you'll be singing to yourself "Oh I'm running to your arms..." without realising it because it's so catchy! I hope you find it as stirring as I have

Lyrics are:

V1:
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

V2:
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 it's sting
Chorus:
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
V3:
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
Bridge:
My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus
