Touch the Sky

It’s been several months since sharing about my addiction to the Hillsong Empires CD and I am still going strong. Touch the Sky is probably the most popular song on the CD, and I love the lyrics because they speak such truth. When we lay our life down, we find true life in Him. Until we surrender our will, then we can’t live fully for what God has for us. I hope this song, as well as the whole CD, blesses you today.

Touch the Sky

What fortune lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Below are other great songs by Hillsong that I have shared in the past:

    Omg Carol!
    Yes this is my favourite song off Empires, the clarity of the lyrics runs deep.
    It applies to me in all areas, when I feel low, I play this song.
    It is so awesome and you feel the holy spirit actively involved in the songwriting.

    ‘I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground.’

    That’s my favourite line. Because it is so true and real for me, when work is stressing, when I feel lonely or things aren’t making sense, I know that when I get on my knees I feel a sense of elevation.
    Thank you for this post.
    Perfect timing.
    I think everyone should get Empires. Hillsong United went in on this one.

    Stay blessed.
    And continue elevating and uplifting us with these posts. You are amazing.
