The new song for June in the 11:15 service at Central Presbyterian Church is “Forever Reign.” This worship song is familiar to many of our children who sang it enthusiastically at the 2013 Spring Storm retreat.
This song is a strong affirmation of God’s strong love and healing presence that reign over our sin, doubt, and fear. As our church goes through many transitions that can make us feel unstable, anxious, and afraid, one powerful way that we can find strength to stand firm and to follow the Lord together as a united church family is to sing the word of God to one another in spiritual songs. The Lord promises us that our singing is a means by which the word of Christ will dwell in us richly (Colossians 3:16). So let us sing of the Lord’s reign with faith and thankfulness so that we can experience more deeply the peace and wisdom of Christ ruling in our hearts.

You are good, you are good when there’s nothing good in me.
You are love, you are love on display for all to see.
You are light, you are light when the darkness closes in.
You are hope, you are hope; you have covered all my sin.
You are peace, you are peace when my fear is crippling.
You are true, you are true even in my wandering.
You are joy, you are joy; you’re the reason that I sing.
You are life, you are life; in you death has lost its sting.
Oh, I’m running to your arms; I’m running to your arms.
The riches of your love will always be enough.
Nothing compares to your embrace.
Light of the world, forever reign.
You are more, you are more than my words will ever say.
You are Lord, you are Lord, all creation will proclaim.
You are here, you are here; in your presence I’m made whole.
You are God, you are God; of all else I’m letting go.
My heart will sing no other name,
