Sound Of Melodies
by Leeland


Here in this place
With humbleness and brokenness
We seek all You are
We seek You
And it’s for You
It’s all for You
We’re leaping over walls to get to You
Would You pull us along
Pull us home

We are
We are reaching
We are reaching out
(And we’re calling for You, Lord)
We’re caught up in this hunger
Searching for Your heart
(And we’re calling for You, Lord)

Here on this earth
We lift our eyes to the stars
We seek all You are
We seek You
And it’s for You
It’s all for you
We’re breaking off our chains to run to You
Would you fill our hearts
Oh, fill our songs

Leaving the lights on, the lights on
We wait for you
This won’t be the last song, the last song
We sing to you

We are
We are reaching
We are reaching out
(And we’re calling for You, Lord)

Behind the Song:
Frontman Leeland Mooring says, “The sound of ‘Reaching’ is entertaining, but at the heart of it is a vision for reaching out to God. It’s about longing after God. It’s about making a decision to seek after God instead of doing nothing.” Keyboardist Jack Mooring agrees. “Reaching to God is moving toward God, not just him moving toward you.”
