lost your life to find it here

While I work, I turned on my music and put on my headphone and searched for a worship songs. I stumbled into this. The song is almost coming to its end, but the word “You lost Your life so I could find it here” caught my attention.

I have heard this song multiple times through Spotify. Honestly, I haven’t taken its message into heart. Could be because I was too busy to really sit in and listen with intention. I have this habit of just hearing but not really understanding. And when I don’t understand a thing, I have no ability to give my views or to react.

It made me stop what I was doing. My heart suddenly ached and I intently listen to the song. Restarted it and read the lyrics. After many times I listened to the song, I finally understood the message.

I was captivated . . . once again by God’s deep and unconditional love. How on earth, it took me too much time to realize that again? How could I just swept away his chase? Stubborn love, yeah right. That is how he is. When I purposely taken him for granted, no way did he even turn away his back from me. No way did he ever stop loving me.

With just that phrase “You lost Your life so I could find it here”, I was torn and broken and . . . was restored to HIM. Funny how God can turn a very ordinary day to an amazing encounter with HIM. I was swept away by a True Love.

And the next songs I’ve heard from my list played sweetly it captures my heart over and over again like a lullaby.

So Will I (100 Billion X) Lyrics

God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I
So will I
So will I
If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times
God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender so will I
I can see Your heart
Eight billion different ways
Every precious one
A child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them so will I
Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind
