Reaching – lyrics

I never knew how much You loved me
I never knew the price You paid
I always longed for Your forgiveness
But in my heart thought it too late

You reached into my dark existence
You saved me from a certain fall
You held me close and calmed my spirit
And now I hear Your gentle call

I’m reach, reaching
I’m reach, reaching
I’m reach, reaching for You

Forever looking but not finding
I searched the world to find some truth
And when I finally gave up searching
I realized the truth was You

In all Your mercy You embraced me
You gave me hope where there was none
You filled my heart with loving kindness
And now I know You are the One

Reaching now, I’m reaching now
Reaching out to take Your hand
Teach me now, oh teach me now
On Your word I long to stand
Lead me to Your holy place
Let my life begin again!

I’m reach, reaching
I’m reach, reaching
I’m reach, reaching for You
