Our God Reigns

I just returned from the Joyce Meyers 25th Anniversary Womans Convention in St. Louis where Delirious? led the worship. Talk about amazing. I've heard these guys before, they have written songs like, "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" and "Deeper (I want to go Deeper)". But, at this conference they sang their song, "Our God Reigns" and had a video clip to it. I wish I had their actual clip, but I don't, so I found one that does justice to this song, also, on YouTube.

Hope you enjoy and are as deeply touched as I am....

Our God Reigns

40 million babies lost to Gods great orphanage,

It’s a modern day genocide and a modern day disgrace

If this is a human right then why aren’t we free?

The only freedom we have is in a man nailed to a tree.

100 million faces, staring at the sky,

Wondering if this HIV will ever pass us by.

The devil stole the rain and hope trickles down the plug,

But still my Chinese take away could pay for someone’s drugs.

Our God reigns, Our God reigns,Forever your kingdom reigns.

The west has found a gun and it’s loaded with ‘unsure’

Nip and tuck if you have the bucks in a race to find a cure.

Psalm one hundred and thirty nine is the conscience to our selfish crime,

God didn’t screw up when he made you,

He’s a father who loves to parade you.

Yes he reigns, yes you reign, yes you reign,

For there is only one true God,

But we’ve lost the reins on this world,

Forgive us all, forgive us please,

As we fight for this broken world on our knees.
