Homage That’s Loud


Flyleaf – All Around Me

My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you

This fire rising through my being
Burning I’m not used to seeing you

I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place

The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me

Too liberal for you? Or is this the kind of worship that breaks out of the norm and purely from the heart? The kind that God is looking for when He said “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him…”

Flyleaf is one of my favourite Christian rock bands. They may not sound nor look like the usual, stereotyped, square-headed Christians labelled by the world, but it certainly is evident when you listen carefully to the homage they bring to God in their songs. Now, who said that Christianity is boring and unexciting?
