If I Rise to the Heavens

Description

Psalm 139 is a precious prayer from a soul in turmoil (David), reaching out to his Heavenly Father for guidance, wisdom, and peace. It is a reminder that God intimately knows us - both our outer and inner circumstances - and is always with us no matter how far we might stray from Him.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
You feel my heartache,
Capture my tears;
From night to daybreak You're near.
You see my struggle,
Know every fear;
In times of trouble You're near.
So help me open up my heart,
You've promised never to depart.

Chorus:
If I rise to the heavens,
If I sink into the sea,
I am always forgiven and free.
On the wings of the morning,
In the cover of the night,
You will always be bringing Your light.

Verse 2:
You won my pardon
Though I had failed,
Love over ruin prevailed.
You bore the sentence
That I should face
And gave repentance by grace.
So help me open up my heart,
You've promised never to depart.

Bridge:
How precious are your thoughts to me,
They number more than the sand.
When I am awake I'm still with you
So lead me by the hand.
