“Mystery” by Phil Wickham (Acoustic)

Wow. The lyrics to this song are so, so amazing. A lot of scripture fused in here. I absolutely love this song of praise to our Lord and King! I downloaded the song today and found an acoustic version on You-tube, which I have included below. From the way Phil describes his spiritual walk when writing this song, I feel like I am at a similar place right now in my own walk with Christ – a place of just so desperately wanting to know Him, wanting to feel His presence every moment, wanting to become One with His Spirit, and wanting to see Him move in my life. Just wanting, wanting, wanting more of Him. I feel so blessed that God led me to this song today!

The entire song is wonderful, but the lines from the chorus stuck out most for me. “I wanna hear the thunder of who You are.” How awesome! Can you imagine what God’s thunder would sound like? Him being the Creator of energy! I can’t even fathom the shock wave He would produce. Our ears could not handle it.

I also love the idea of being “captured inside the wonder of who You are.” I love that Phil Wickham used the word “captured.” To be arrested, seized, completely occupied by His wonder, unable to escape it! Oh my God, what an amazing thought! I want this so deeply! Lord, inhabit all of me that others and I would only see You and none of me!

The line that made me fall deeper in praise was the last line of the chorus: “I wanna live and I wanna breathe to search out Your heart and all of Your mystery.” God is SO huge! There is so much we don’t know and won’t be able to fully comprehend until Heaven, but this is still my prayer for my life. Lord, I just want to know You more and more! I know my tiny brain can’t handle it all, but please overload me with You!

At the end of the song when Wickham belts out “Let me know who You are!” Ah! That brought me to a whole ‘nother height of praise and then the song was over!! But that’s okay. I just hit repeat – haha 🙂

Be blessed! 🙂

Here in the quiet
Speak to me now
My ears are open to
Your gentle sweet whispering

And break down the door
Come inside
Shine down Your bright lights
I need a lamp for my feet
Yea, I need a lamp for my feet

‘Cause I wanna hear the thunder of who You are
To be captured inside the wonder of who You are
And I wanna live
I wanna breathe
To search out Your heart
And all of Your mystery

You were the first
And You’ll be the end
Time cannot hold You down
So why save a wretch like me?

‘Cause no eye has seen
And no ear has heard
No heart could fully know
All of Your mystery

And I wanna hear the thunder of who You are
To be captured inside the wonder of who You are
I wanna live
And I wanna breathe
To search out Your heart
And all of Your mystery

Your glory burns in the stars
Shine down Your light
Let it burn in my heart
Bring me to glory
Bring me to You
Lord, it’s Your heart that I will hold on to

And I wanna hear the thunder of who You are
To be captured inside the wonder of who You are
I wanna live
And I wanna breathe
To search out Your heart
And all of Your mystery

Your glory burns in the stars
Shine down Your light
Let me know who You are
Jesus,
Your glory burns in the stars
Shine down Your light
Let me see You
Let me see You
