Be still my soul…there are grander things. Don’t get caught up in the pettiness. This is the monologue am having with myself. Today, it’s the words in the song that gets me. Jenn Johnson nails it. This one ministers to me deeply, especially today. I’ll leave it at her words.
The rising crescendo of the chords at the beginning and towards the end is captivating! Minutes 2.30-2.40 and 3.31 to 4.34, are my favorite.
I get caught up in all these petty things
Losing sight of what matters to you.
But then you come and take me by the hand
You say, ‘come up here with me’
And then my feet came off the ground
You lifted me above the clouds
As I look down the whole world seems so small
Past the stars through space and time
and I forget what’s left behind
as I’m surrounded by these grander things
up here in perfect harmony
You’re orchestrating galaxies
They’re lighting up as far as I can see
The majesty, the mystery
Your gravity pulls me close to you
and I can breathe again
Here with you, there’s nothing more to say
and it’s clear what matters to you,
Sovereign high above it all
sovereign, you are
and I can rest ’cause it’s all in your hands
sovereign you are
