Reason #11 - He Sings Over Me


Have you ever had anybody write a song especially for you?

I have written songs several songs in my life for special occasions for people that I love. Granted, they weren't necessarily the most wonderful songs in the world, (I have even been known to "rap" through certain parts in some of these songs :)) but they always expressed my heart towards that special someone. Every time that I have presented these songs, the person being honored was always touched. Not because of anything amazing that I had written (heaven knows that's not the case!!) but there's just something special about knowing that someone has taken the time to write a song especially for you.

I have never had someone here on earth sing a song just for me and just about me. But I was so encouraged the other day as I was thinking on this: my Lord sings over me! He sings songs specifically about me! And I wouldn't be surprised if the Inventor of music writes His own songs! :) What a beautiful thought!

Zephaniah 3:17 - "The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy, He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing."

I have been in a song writing mood for the past couple weeks, so I have written a new song, probably the most joyful one I've ever written! :) which I titled: "He Sings Over Me"

What kind of love is this I see?

What kind of love is here with me?

The God of all the universe

Holds out His hand to me.

What kind of peace now floods my soul?

What kind of peace has made me whole?

With mighty arms He rescues me

And by His blood I'm free.


Now joy and wonder fills my heart

I sing and praise and thank my God.
The Lord has come to be with me

He loves His child

And now-

He sings over me.


What kind of joy is now my song?

What kind of joy has made me strong?

Through sorrow, weakness, fear, and pain

I still sing through the rain.

What kind of grace forgives each sin?

When I am lost, finds me again?

The Lord sees every time I fall

And still, comes when I call.


He knows each star

And calls them by name,

Yet He cares for sparrows

Just the same!


Now joy and wonder fills my heart

I sing and praise and thank my God.

The Lord has come to be with me

He loves His child
And now-

He sings over me.



I love my Lord, because He sings over me!
