03. Everything

Holding Nothing Back
by Tim Hughes



 

God in my living
There in my breathing
God in my waking
God in my sleeping

God in my resting
There in my working
God in my thinking
God in my speaking

Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything

God in my hoping
There in my dreaming

God in my watching
God in my waiting

God in my laughing
There in my weeping
God in my hurting
God in my healing

Christ in me
Christ in me
Christ in me the hope of glory
You are everything

Christ in me
Christ in me
Christ in me the hope of glory
Be my everything




Behind the Song:
Reading a Christian poetry book, I stumbled across an old Celtic prayer. The first verse really struck me, “God to enfold me, God to surround me, God in my speaking, God in my thinking.” This longing for God to be at the centre of all that we are, and all that we do, really challenged me. So often we de-compartmentalise our faith, sometimes leaving our thoughts of God to Church, reading the bible, praying - this however is so narrow-minded. We need to learn to put God at the centre of our breathing, thinking, resting, working, waking, sleeping, hurting and healing. There’s nothing however seemingly small that we should exclude God from. We need to keep Him as our everything. The verse and chorus melody came quickly, followed by a bridge melody. Lyrically it felt like the ‘Christ in me the hope of glory,’ perfectly captured everything the song was trying to say. Musically though, it felt like the song needed a section to explode. One time, worshipping with the song in my room, I began to sing the chorus an octave up. From a vocal point of view, to sing it out that high required commitment and passion. Personally I love the fact that you can’t sing this final chorus half-heartedly. It’s all or nothing. Much like our faith needs to be. ------Tim Hughes
