Holy

The lyrics to this Nichole Nordemann song have been swirling around in my head for days now, so I thought I’d share them. (Please do click on the hot link in the previous sentence–it will give you the story behind the song, which is intriguing.)

Holy

How many roads did I travel, before I walked down one that led me to You?
How many dreams did unravel, before I believed in a hope that was true?
How long? How far?
What was meant to fulfill only emptied me still
And all you ever wanted:

Only me, on my knees,
Singing “Holy, holy”
Somehow all that matters now is
You are holy, holy

How many deaths did I die before I was awakened to new life again?
How many half-truths did I bear witness to, ’til the proof was disproved in the end?
How long? How far?
What was meant to illuminate shadowed me still
And all you ever wanted:

Only me, on my knees,
Singing “Holy, holy”
Somehow all that matters now is
You are holy, holy

And all I have is gratitude to offer You.

You are holy.
