mighty to save.

we gathered together, thousands singing for the glory of the risen King. and just in case i forgot, we declared Him stronger while children from africa danced with glee. somewhere during mighty to save with their small hands lifted sky-high and their eyes closed, i fell in love with the song again. i thought of breezy sunday mornings in an african slum and voices echoing around me, of eyes full of curiosity looking my way as russ strummed his guitar next to me. i didn't always love this song. over-played and taken for granted, the meaning was lost until heard from the lips of ย those who have nothing but truly know the meaning of full surrender.
