Song: Ephesian Covenant (I am God)

Standard

As mentioned earlier, I’ve been looking to write a new song to express what I’m learning about God’s fatherhood. However, I couldn’t figure out where to start. Then, last week while visiting San Francisco with my brother’s family — we stayed at the Radisson Inn on Fisherman’s Wharf — I woke up at midnight. I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I started thinking (fruitlessly) about this song. I finally complained to God about the block, when He basically said, “ask me.” So, I got up and went into the bathroom, and this is what I felt God had to say to me:

I am God
I am the source of all you seek
I will hold you when you’re weak
I have died to give you life
I will take you as my wife
Share your pain
Heal your sins
Be your God

[Read More] for the complete song. The rest I can perhaps claim to have written, but the chorus (however imperfectly recorded) was given to me.

Ephesian Covenant (I am God)
Copyright August 7, 2005 Ernest N. Prabhakar[also available in slide format]

When it seems I’ve lost my way
Growing weaker day by day
Filled with anger, fear, and shame
So I can’t recall my name
Then a light comes breaking through
Bringing word to me of you
All my dark is washed away
When at last I hear you say:

I am God (You are God)
I am the source of all you seek
I am God (You are God)
I will hold you when you’re weak
I have died to give you life
I will take you as my wife
Share your pain
Heal your sins
Be your God

In a world that’s lost its way
You have called me to obey
Not to judge them for their sin
But to birth new life within
Love them when they need a friend
Help their broken hearts to mend
Set their feet upon the way
So they too might hear you say:

I am God (You are God)
I am the source of all you seek
I am God (You are God)
I will hold you when you’re weak
I have died to give you life
I will take you as my wife
Share your pain
Heal your sins
Be your God

You are God (He is God)
You are the source of all I seek
You are God (He is God)
You will hold me when I’m weak
You have died to give me life
You will take me as your wife
Share my pain
Heal my sins
Be my God

I am God (You are God)
I am the source of all you seek
I am God (You are God)
I will hold you when you’re weak
I have died to give you life
You’re my precious, precious wife
Give me your pain
Release your sins
I am God

Be my child
Be my bride
I am God

I am real
I am here
I am your God
