God Is by Danielle Rose

The first time I heard this song was at the Caritas retreat led by Father Tri Dinh last February 2008. Grounded on Ignatian spirituality, this retreat experience allows many young adults in their 20s and 30s to explore God's love and voice in their lives through relationships with those around them. It incorporates conversations, prayers and presentations with regards to the following areas:

Longing to Love and Be Loved
Love Chooses Me
Love and Sexuality
Love and its 10,000 Imitations

Moved from the retreat, Greg and I included this song as part of our offertory to serve as a reminder of always keeping God in the center of our lives.

God Is - Danielle Rose

God Is by Danielle Rose

You want to know Me? You want to see My face?
I do not age with time; I do not fit into a space
I transcend the capacity of your eye, so who am I?
It is the question of the moment;
It is the question for all time
I am you, and you are mine

I am the beginning and the end
I am the faith in your believing
I am the color of truth
I am the dreamer of your dreams
I am the falling in your love
I am the words of a prayer
I am the silence in the music
I am the music in the silence

I am your father; I am your mother
I am the man who cannot cry
I am the story in your eyes
I am the orphan of war
I am the leper begging on the corner
I am the black slave in chains
I am the Muslim bride who cannot show her face
I'm the cross you carry again

I'm all you have forgotten
I am all that you have not been
I am in you - all of this in within you
Let the journey begin, Amen
I am in you, Amen
