Cover Me

In my continual search for awesome worship songs, I have another one (see last post). This one is titled “Cover Me” by Bebo Norman. Bebo Norman is an excellent musician; I have liked his music for a long time, and this song is no exception. The lyrics are below the video for you to look at. Enjoy the music, but really take a minute and look at the lyrics. We need God to cover us.  On a musical note, this song has some excellent layering. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Cover me, cover up my tears
Cover up this man who’s covered up in fear
I need a peace of mind, I need a piece of you
TO cover all that’s gone and everything that’s new
You unveil me with your mercy
I want to breathe you in
You unfold me, then you hold me

Cover up my heart, cover up my soul
Cover up this world and everything I know
You cover up the sky, you cover up the sea
Cover up the mountains and every part of me
Everything single breath I breathe…cover me

I am still alive and covered up in years
Covered up in lines as innocence appears
So give me a peace of mind, give me a piece of you
To cover all that’s old with everything that’s new
You unveil me with your mercy
I want to breathe you in
And you unfold me, then you hold me

You unveil me with your mercy
I want to breathe you in
You unfold me then you hold me
I want to shed this skin
You unveil me with your mercy
You unfold me, then you hold me
You unbreak me, would you take me home

– Adam Smith
