Every fear overtaken / Every wall comes crashing down / I am free in Your presence whoa / You have lifted my burdens / You surround me with Your grace / Full of hope in Your presence whoa
And I, I can’t stop singing ‘bout Your love / I can’t stop singing ‘bout Your love / My heart is overcome / And I, I can’t stop singing ‘bout Your love / For everything that You’ve done / My heart is overcome
I see the Kingdom of Heaven pierce the dark with endless light / We’re alive in Your presence whoa / You have won our salvation at the cross one sacrifice / So secure in Your presence whoa
I praise You forever / Your love goes on and on / I sing to You Jesus / You are my first love / I praise You forever / Your love goes on and on / I sing to You Jesus / You are my first love / Sing hallelujah / You are my first love / Sing hallelujah

BEHIND THE SONG:
I was in my car playing through demos of songs, and this one literally jumped out at me. I love that it says Jesus is my first love… not an accessory to my life, but Whom all things revolve around. I love that it was written by two of our great worship leaders at church, Luke Taylor and Sarah Potts. I love that our Hope UC family love this song, that every time we sing it, it kind of makes your heart smile, and your praise rise.
I love how God has given us the ability to access heaven on earth at any time, as we enter His gates with thanksgiving. I am one ever grateful woman.
