I Am Loved

“Surprised by hope this holy Light now dances in my soul…”

These are the opening lyrics that sprang into my mind as I was a block away from my house. “Good timing, inspiration!” The opening riff just stumbled off my fingers as I played my drop D tuned guitar and the song came together like magic.

Have you ever been surprised by hope? Has joy unspeakable and full of glory ever snuck up on you and ambushed you when you least expected?

These are healing moments when you finally and fully align with the present moment where God’s complete salvation abides. You are home in the love of the Father. You are loved by the One in whom you live and move and have your being.

“Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King”

I really wanted to include something in this song about being in God’s family and my wife and I were both led to read Romans 8. As we read it together in The Passion Translation, the phrase “enfolded in the family” jumped out.

“That’s it!” I exclaimed.

Originally I had written Nothing in the universe can take your love from me. Papa corrected me and said, “No, say ‘change’ instead of ‘take’. That’s what I want to say to my kids.

Lyrics:

Surprised by hope this holy Light now dances in my soul
You reached out when I was caught, in an undertow
You pulled me up to where you are, so I will always know
I am loved, I am loved

You carried me when I was weak, I could not help myself
You promised me you’d never leave, even in my hell
When I lose sight of who you are, you’re always here to tell me
I’m loved, I am loved

Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King (2x)
I am, I am, I am loved

You began a beautiful work inside of me
So I will lean upon your Grace until it is complete
A new creation I am made, I’m choosing to believe
I am loved, I am loved

Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King (2x)
I am, I am, I am loved

One thought on “I Am Loved

    Daniel, beautiful lyrics, and I agree with Papa, “nothing . . . change your love for me” is much better and has a different connotation.
