I Am

This is one of my most favorite Christian songs.  It touches me to the core.  It's a beautiful song and Mark Schultz's voice just pierces me.  My favorite part is when he sings, "And when you cry, I am...", first of all because it's a very moving part of the song, and second of all because it reminds me that God is always there for me, loving me when I'm hurting, even when no one else sees what's going on inside.  I hear it more as, "And when you cry I AM...", as a thought complete by itself.  Because I AM is just one of God's many names.  It reminds me that He is strong and powerful, He is unchanging, He is always there, and He is love.

Just wanted to share. :)

I Am
by Mark Schultz

I am the maker of the heavens
I am the bright and morning star
I am the breath of all creation
Who always was
And is to come

I am the One who walked on water
I am the One who calmed the seas
I am the miracles and wonders
So come and see
And follow me
You will know

I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of Man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

I am the spirit deep inside you
I am the word upon your heart
I am the One who even knew you
Before your birth
Before you were

I am the fount of living water
The risen Son of Man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am

Before the Earth (I am)
The universe (I am)
In every heart (I am)
Oh, where you are (I am)
The Lord of Lords (I am)
The King of Kings (I am)
The Holy Lamb (I am)
Above all things

Yes, I am almighty God your father
The risen Son of Man
The healer of the broken
And when you cry
I am your savior and redeemer
Who bore the sins of man
The author and perfecter
Beginning and the end
I am
