...your new favorite song...

Song of the Day/Week/Month/Who knows how long:

How He Loves Us-- Kim Walker

Ready to be undone, internets? Amazing lyrics. I can't even handle it.
Lyrics (for your enjoyment, cause that's the kind of friend i am):

He is jealous for me
Love's like a hurricane, I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
and I realize just how beautiful You are and how great your affections are for me.
Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so.

Yeah, He loves us
Woah, how He loves us
Woah, how He loves us
Woah, how He loves.

So we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean we're all sinking
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss and my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way

That he loves us,
Woah, how He loves us
Woah, how He loves us
Woah, how He loves us

My favorite line:
"when all of the sudden i am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory, and i realize just how beautiful you are and how great your affections are for me."
WOW.

oh, yeah.. also the line that says
"i don't have time to maintain these regrets when i realize the way he loves us"

yes lord!

so take a listen and worship this morning. thanks kim walker for ushering me in to the presence of jesus today~
