30 Days of Song: Day 24

2011/03/25

Day 24-a song that makes you cry every time you hear it

Time for the first repeat of the list. And despite the fact that I occasionally get teary when listening to my brother’s favorite, IT’S NOT THE ONE.

No, it’s this.

“Indescribable” by Chris Tomlin.

These lines, in particular, touch my heart deeply:

“Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light? / Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night? / None can fathom…”

Night is something we often associate with darkness, danger, fear, evil. But this song helps to reframe nighttime in a completely different…well…light.

It reminds me that even this fallen world is still created by a loving God, and that even its broken aspects are used by Him for the good of us, His most beloved creations.

Some people shout when they worship God. Others are quiet and holy-hushed.

Me, I shed tears when I’m cognizant of His awesome might and great glory and loving kindness. This song poetically reminds me of all those qualities.
