08. Sovereign Over Us

Sovereign
by Michael W. Smith



 

There is strength within the sorrow / There is beauty in our tears / And You meet us in our mourning / With a love that casts out fear / You are working in our waiting / You’re sanctifying us / When beyond our understanding / You’re teaching us to trust
YOUR PLANS ARE STILL TO PROSPER / YOU HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN US / YOU’RE WITH US IN THE FIRE AND THE FLOOD / YOU’RE FAITHFUL FOREVER / PERFECT IN LOVE / YOU ARE SOVEREIGN OVER US
You are wisdom unimagined / Who could understand Your ways / Reigning high above the Heavens / Reaching down in endless grace / You’re the lifter of the lowly / Compassionate and kind / You surround and You uphold me / And Your promises are my delight // Even what the enemy means for evil / You turn it for our good / You turn it for our good and for Your glory / Even in the
valley, You are faithful / You’re working for our good / You’re working for our good and for Your glory

Behind the Song:
Aaron Keys, who is a worship leader from Atlanta, my son-in-law, Jack Mooring, and Bryan Brown, co-wrote this song. When I heard it, I thought that I just had to cut this song! It says God hasn’t forgotten us; He’s with us in the fire and the flood. Singing this song, and watching people in the audience, is simply incredible. It’s so encouraging and gives you something to hang on to in the midst of anything you feel might overwhelm you emotionally. There is tragedy and heartbreak in life but at the end of the day, God is somehow in the middle of it all, which can be hard to understand. I think there’s something supernatural about it. There are songs that come along every once in a while where you say, “This is special!” I don’t use the word special very often, but this one certainly is! - Michael W. Smith
