Many of you have most likely heard of Gungor, and have been listening to their music for a while (“Beautiful Things”, “The Earth Is Yours”, etc). But, have you heard of the amazing poet Amena Brown? About a year ago, Gungor and Amena teamed up to mash her poem “He Is Here” with Gungor’s “We Will Run”. The product is captured in the awe-inspiring video beneath. Check it out, and follow along with the lyrics below. I think this is the right follow up to The Power of Hope!
He’s right here.
In this room; In your Heart
He is near
Nearer than you are to you,
closer than second chance,
or next opportunity.
Closer than tonight, or yesterday.
He is real.
More real than touch; see, hear, smell, or taste.
More real than reality; He is our reality!
More real than joy, pain, sorrow, or the love of being in love.
He is present.
Like space, wind, time, silence, night.
He is waiting.
Like words on the tip of tongue.
Like; songs that have yet to be sung.
He is beauty.
And oranges, blues, every hue, every shade.
Sunset and sunrise whisper his name.
He is holy.
Cannot be touched, explained, like; sweet seconds of prayer.
Like; grandmother on knees.
Wood floor, bare.
He is old hymns.
The extending of limbs, stretched across trees;
Stripes to heal disease.
He is son.
Distinctly three; distinctly one.
The only one.
The only wise.
The only resurrector of lives.
He is king.
And no earthly throne can house him.
No amount of elegant words can espouse him.
He is moment, and voice.
Power of choice.
Nailed hands; nailed feet.
Innocent wounds, that bleed.
He is believe.
He is all
He is call, and purpose.
Everything we can sacrifice hes worth it, and more.
Our good deeds are mere pennies; well never even to score.
He is behold.
And wow, he is who, what, when, why, how.
He is the one who puts on the show.
He is the one that we come to see.
He is souls cry, and sinners plea.
He is the epitome that no one can light a candle to or, come within a million-foot pole of.
He is above.
He is a fathers love.
Maker of waves, of earth and wind.
Ancient of days.
Has no fear.
Have no fear!
Have no fear! Our God is here!
