Verse 1

What fortune lies
beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights
too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven
as love swept low


My heart beating,
my soul breathing
I found my life
when I laid it down
Upward falling,
Spirit soaring
I touch the sky
when my knees hit the ground

Verse 2

What treasure waits
within Your scars
This gift of freedom
gold can't buy
I bought the world
and sold my heart
You traded heaven
to have me again


Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am,
reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up
in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Touch The Sky - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]

The song “Touch the Sky” by Hillsong United is a beautiful reminder of the power of surrendering our lives to God. The lyrics speak of the freedom and joy that comes from laying down our lives and trusting in God’s plan. 

The Bible speaks of this same truth in many places. In Romans 12:1-2, Paul writes, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” 

This verse reminds us that when we surrender our lives to God, we are able to experience true freedom and joy. We are no longer bound by the patterns of this world, but instead, we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. We can touch the sky when our knees hit the ground, because it is in that moment of surrender that we find our true life. 

The bridge of the song speaks of finding ourselves at God’s feet again, and surrendering everything we are to Him. This is a beautiful reminder of the power of surrendering our lives to God. We can find true freedom and joy when we lay down our lives and trust in God’s plan. 

Take some time today to reflect on the lyrics of this song and the truth of God’s Word. Ask God to help you surrender your life to Him and experience the freedom and joy that comes from trusting in His plan.
