God I Look to You

Jenn Johnson

As I’ve been in prayer about setting the tone in my personal worship and in our collective worship experience at BVAG, this lyric keeps coming to my heart. Though I haven’t heard the song in four or five years, every time I turn my heart toward His direction for this new year, this is where I linger. 

It starts off very personally: looking to God for vision and wisdom so that we gain direction. Then it shifts to a personal acknowledgement that I can look to Him for this because He is my strength, my shield, and my rock! As I proclaim this to be true and enter in to worshiping this Lord over my whole life, I can join in with all of my brothers and sisters, together now, declaring, “Hallelujah!! Our God Reigns FOREVER!” 

I can’t think of a better way to begin the new year. We look to God - our strength, our shield, and our rock - who will reign forever. Hallelujah!

God I look to You, I won't be overwhelmed

Give me vision to see things like You do

God I look to You, You're where my help comes from

Give me wisdom; You know just what to do

I will love You Lord my strength

I will love You Lord my shield

I will love You Lord my rock forever

All my days I will love You God

Hallelujah our God reigns

Hallelujah our God reigns

Hallelujah our God reigns

Forever all my days Hallelujah
