Captivated

I've been captivated by this song for the last several days. By a CCM (contemporary Christian Music) artist named Shawn McDonald who has an interesting personal story.

Captivated

When I look into the mountains I see Your face
When I look into the night sky it sparkles Your Name

The wind in the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high
That's what draws me to You

Chorus:
I am
I'm captivated by You
(You know that You do)
I am
I'm captivated

When I wake unto the morning it gives me your sights
When I look across the ocean it echoes Your might

The sand on the shore and the waves in the sea
The air in my lungs and the way You made me
That's what draws me to You

Chorus x2

The wind in the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high
The sand on the shore and the waves in the sea
The air in my lungs and the way You made me

The blood in my veins and my heart You invade
The plants how they grow and the trees and the shade
The way that I feel and the Love in my soul
I thank you my God for letting me know

Chorus x2

The other night, I was walking home from Acacia Bar and the sky was absolutely clear. It has been months and months and months since this was true, either due to rainclouds (since March) or the harmattan haze (Nov-Feb). But that night it was so clear and I looked up and nearly fell over from all the stars and their brightness. Simply awe-inspiring! There was the universe, God's creation, captivating me, yet again.
