My new favorite song :) (that and "Soon" in the playlist to the right)

I couldn't find this song to add to my playlist, so here it is with a video:) I was baptized this morning, and we sang this song after all of the baptisms. It wasn't the first time we had ever sung it (is that grammar correct?), but I just LOVED singing it today. You know how some people talk about eternity, and they're like..."Yeah, I mean are we going to be floating around with wings and singing to God for the rest of our lives?" (etc. etc.) Well, I used to be one of those people. Don't get me wrong, I always looked forward to Christ's return. I looked forward to the end of pain, the end of struggles, poverty, starving people, etc. I just wasn't sure exactly what FOREVER was going to be like. I mean, FOREVER, my goodness. I can't even wrap myself around that "timeline" (if you will ;) ), let alone what we'd be DOING that whole time. Well, since coming to the Village, my eyes have been opened. Our pastor talks about the new earth and our eternal life with Christ in a way that makes me want to jump for joy. Come quickly, Lord. Come quickly!!

("Soon" is also a song about seeing Jesus face to face. Love it. Enjoy this one. Here it is again!)

Hillsong
You Hold Me Now lyrics

On that day when I see
All that You have for me
When I see You face to face
There surrounded by Your grace

All my fear is swept away
In the light of your embrace
When Your love is all I need
And forever I am free

Where the streets are made of gold
In Your presence healed and whole
Let the songs of heaven rise to you alone

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now

In this life I will stand
Through my joy and my pain
Knowing there's a greater day
There's a hope that never fails

When Your name is lifted high
And forever praises rise
For the glory of Your Name
I'm believing for the day

When the wars and violence cease
All creation lives in peace
Let the songs of heaven rise to you alone

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness, no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now
