"Above All" . Words and Music by Michael W Smith. The Love Story of Easter, planned and executed by God.




Above all powers
Above all things
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began

Above all kingdoms
Above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what You're worth

Crucified
Laid behind the stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all

What a message this song conveys. It brings me to a state of worship everytime I hear it.

My sister is a big Michael W. Smith fan and so is a dear friend in Scotland. Music has a way of speaking directly to the heart at times.

ellie,
doesn't it just! Me too.

janice,
Again, it's been my pleasure but you are most welcome.

cs,
Music is very important to me. It can really reinforce a mood or even change it. I also pay a lot of attention to the lyrics. Michael Smith's lyrics are very thoughtful. I wonder what music speaks to you?

becky,
Me too. Praise God.
