Endless Song

there is an endless song,
echoes in my soul
I hear the music ring
and though the storms may come,
I am holding on,
and to the rock I cling.

how can I keep from singing Your praise?
how can I ever say enough?
how amazing is Your love?
how can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
and it makes my heart want to sing

I will lift my eyes
in the darkest night
for I know my Savior lives
and I will walk with You
knowing You see me through
and sing the songs You give

how can I keep from singing Your praise?
how can I ever say enough?
how amazing is Your love?
how can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
and it makes my heart want to sing

I can sing in the troubled times,
sing when I win.
I can sing when I lose my step,
and I fall down again.
I can sing 'cause You pick me up,
sing 'cause You're there
I can sing 'cause You hear me Lord,
when I call to You in prayer
I can sing with my last breath
sing for I know
that I'll sing with the angels,
and the saints around the throne

how can I keep from singing Your praise?
how can I ever say enough?
how amazing is Your love?
how can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
and it makes my heart want to sing

-Chris Tomlin

Amy played this song on the piano this afternoon and we belted out the words from my apartment. Though the brisk, chilly weather calls for hot chocolate with jet-puffed marshmallows, we ate fudgesicles like it should still be summertime.

Being 'chosen' by Chrislyn to be her 'model' for her photography assignment made my day. She took pictures of me while I sat on a swing and sang along to my ipod - a lovely combo!

"The Office" season premiere brought 14 friends over for a nacho feast and homemade cookies, not to mention loads of laughter at Michael's absurdity.

I took Samba dance lessons last night and then watched "Freedom Writers" - I recommend both. :) Long phone conversations with friends 5 minutes away and friends far away leave me feeling loved and ready to love.


My new job, piano music, fudgesicles, "The Office", photos, dance lessons, conversations...
These things really do make my heart sing. I know I am loved by the King.
