"Everlasting" Lyrics & Song Background

One of my favorite Bible verses is Jeremiah 29:11. In fact, I wrote several songs for Let Go & Let God based on this verse. I meet people regularly hoping, watching, listening, and searching for a sign. A note. A message. Something that gives them an idea of God's plan for their life. I also have the opportunity to lead worship for kids weekly at my church - Buckhead Church. What's amazing about the weekly experience is to see kids so absolutely open to the idea of faith, hope and love. I actually find many adults struggling with their faith in a way that would never be found in a child.

No matter how you look at our world today, the reality is that many are searching, asking questions and wondering why life happens. This song is all about searching, looking, listening, and asking for God's plan to be presented in just the right way. I've written many songs and this is one of my favorites for two reasons:  The message and the music. They really work and I listen to this song myself over, and over, and over...!

Hope you enjoy this one!  More to come!!

V1 You're my ever-lasting father, With an ever-living son, An ever-reaching spirit, Not three but one, An ever-lasting message, An ever-patient love, An ever-steady framework, On which I rise above,

Chorus 1 I want to know you, I want to hear you, I want to see, the plans you have in store, And because, My heart is open, Lift me up, catch me when I fall,

V2 You're my ever-lasting father, With an ever-living son, An ever-burning candle, In a world in need of one, An ever-healing comfort, For ever-breaking hearts, A rock that I can lean on, When I fall apart,

Chorus 2 I want to know you, I want to hear you, I want to see, the plans you have in store, And because, My heart is open, Lift me up, catch me when I fall,

V3 You're my ever-lasting father, With an ever-living son, An ever-present thumbprint, On the many and the one, An ever-true acceptance, For ever-longing hearts, Perpetual forgiveness, Cross a brand new start,

Chorus 2 I want to know you, I want to hear you, I want to see, the plans you have in store, And because, My heart is open, Lift me up, catch me when I fall,

V4 You're my ever-lasting father, With an ever-living son, An ever-burning candle, In a world in need of one, Ever-true acceptance, For ever-longing hearts, Perpetual forgiveness, Cross a brand new start,

You're my everlasting father....

My everlasting father...

He's my everlasting father
