On Repeat

Do you ever stumble upon a song you HAVE TO hear OVER and OVER? That happens to me every now and then. A month or so ago, it was "Forever Reign". I sang it at the top of my lungs while driving to pick up my youngest from preschool. I sang it until I cried...the words were (still are) so powerful!
Today I've been listening to a variety of Christmas albums. "Glorious Impossible" (as performed by FFH) really touched me...I think I'm on my 10th repeat of the song (ok, so I found several other arrangements, one done by the Gaither Vocal Band, another by Carl Cartree, the writer of the song). I absolutely LOVE this song!!! Give it a listen, read the lyrics, see if you agree with me...
this is one beautiful song! 

**side note...i just discovered another beautiful arrangement of this song, done by new-to-me duo, The Wiebes...gorgeous!
Here is their arrangement. 

See the Virgin is delivered 
In a cold and crowded stall
Mirror of the Father's glory 
Lies beside her in the straw
 
He is Mercy's incarnation 

Marvel at this miracle! 
For the Virgin gently holds 
The Glorious Impossible
 
Love has come to walk on water 

Turn the water into wine 
Touch the leper,
bless the children 
Love both human and divine
 
Praise the wisdom of the Father 

Who has spoken through His Son 
Speaking still, He calls us to 
The Glorious Impossible
 
Hallelujah 

Hallelujah 
Hallelujah  
Glorious Impossible
 
He was bruised for our transgressions 

And He bears eternal scars 
He was raised for our salvation 
And His righteousness is ours
 
Praise, oh praise Him, praise the glory 

Of this lavish grace so full 
Lift your souls now and receive
the Glorious Impossible!
 
Hallelujah 

Hallelujah 
Hallelujah 
Glorious Impossible
 
Hallelujah 

Hallelujah 
Hallelujah 
Glorious Impossible 
Glorious Impossible
 
Praise, oh praise Him, praise the glory 

Of this lavish grace so full 
Lift your souls now and receive 
The Glorious Impossible
