Indescribable {Music Monday}

Some of my favorite Christian musicians are Chris Tomlin and Laura Story. This song that I heard again last week, is not a new song. It was written by Laura Story, recorded by Chris Tomlin, and later recorded by Laura Story. I like both versions of this song. Chris Tomlin has this song, "Indescribable" on his CD called, "Arriving". Here is a post about a Chris Tomlin song that I wrote about a few months ago. I have written about Laura Story's songs before here and here.

I like this song because of the imagery in the lyrics. I was thinking about lilacs and the "fragrance of spring" while listening to this song last week. I appreciate the author's praise of God and His Creation. God truly is One that we are not able to describe! He is too amazing, too awesome, too powerful for our feeble minds to grasp.
"Indescribable" by Chris Tomlin
Songwriters: Jesse Reeves, Laura Story

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

All powerful, untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing, God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet, conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

All powerful, untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing, God
You are amazing, God

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God

All powerful, untamable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart
And You love me the same
You are amazing, God
You are amazing, God

I hope you've enjoyed this song. Here are few verses that I found to relate...
Job 38:34-35
“Can you raise your voice to the clouds 
   and cover yourself with a flood of water? 
Do you send the lightning bolts on their way? 
   Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?" 



Psalm 19: 1-2
 "The heavens declare the glory of God; 
   the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 
 Day after day they pour forth speech; 
   night after night they reveal knowledge." 



Do you know our awesome, amazing, indescribable God? I hope you do, and I hope He is present and alive in your life each and every day!
