01. Long Live The King

Whispered And Shouted
by Aaron Shust



 

My heart keeps beating even though I canít control it.
My lungs keep breathing I admit I donít know how.
Bring the flood or bring the fire in this lifetime
Iím ready for the altar or the plough
There are always days when I donít feel like singing
There are always days when I donít care at all
But I know the King of All Creation reigns completely
Over every moment great and small
Long live the One who gives us
Life and peace and hope for tomorrow
Youíve given everything we needed
From the palm of Your hand
Iíll give my everything to the One
Who pledged to cancel My sorrow
All I have is Yours (Long Live the King)
Humbly we approach Your throne of Mercy
Aware that weíre unworthy of Your Grace
(But) You have offered pardon and forgiveness
Grievances are gone without a trace
You restore our lives even though we donít deserve it
And Youíve given us a love thatís not our own
You assemble all our broken, shattered pieces:
More beautiful than I had ever known
You Shall Reign Forever and Ever
You Shall Reign, You Shall Reign
Forever and Ever and Ever and Ever and



Behind the Song:
"I was driving to a memorial concert for Rick Pearson, a friend who had died of leukemia at the age of 23. He had everything going for himóhe led worship at his church, at camps and at conferences, had recently gotten engaged and everybody seemed to love him. But for reasons that God only knows, Rickís time on earth was short. I felt like I should turn off the radio and drive in silence. It was a nice September day in Atlanta, and the top was down on my JeepóI was just trying to enjoy the drive. But my thoughts were stuck on Rick and how God operates in an incredible way during times of apparent tragedy. The chorus to this song just came pouring out in the middle of my drive. Long live the One who gives us life, and peace and hope for tomorrow! Life does not end here! God reigns over all time and eternity, and has invited us to join Him. Iíll give my everything to the One who pledged to cancel my sorrow." - Aaron Shust
