It’s Always Been You – Jeremy Austill
It’s Always Been You

I have taken in the beauty of fall foliage adorning the mist covered mountains.
Splashed in the power of an unending ocean
Dug my toes into snow white sand bordering emerald waters.
Walked through fields of dew drenched wild flowers.
Surveyed the undulation of the earth as it dips into valleys.

Lord, it’s always been You.

I have walked the concrete sidewalks craning to find the top of skyscrapers.
Strolled through precisely manicured parks.
Been surrounded by the splendor of well crafted architecture.
Experienced eye stimulating arrays of brilliant technology.
Found myself enchanted by the radiant allure of a grand city.

Lord, it’s always been You.

I have been emotionally stirred by a moving musical composition.
Inspired by a masterfully produced cinematic wonder.
Enraptured in the raw, palpable atmosphere of a sporting mecca.
Gazed upon the beauty and intrigue of the brush strokes of a virtuoso.
Transported into another realm while turning the pages of a well scribed book.

Lord, it’s always been You.

I have experienced the life consuming power of romantic love.
Wept involuntarily upon the loss of a dear one.
Felt enraged as injustice rolled unimpeded.
Laughed uncontrollably in the company of great friends.
Had my heart and imagination soar in wide eyed hope.

Lord, it’s always been You.

I have felt You closer than my skin, nearer than my breath.
Sensed You in the common and mundane.
Walked at a distance and hand in hand.
Lived under the radiance of your good pleasure and the mercy of your correction.
Experienced You in it all.

Lord, it’s always been You.
