Few songs capture the entrancing, humbling, overwhelming awe I experience in the presence of God. Magnificent, a song by U2 from their 2009 CD, No Line On The Horizon, describes the powerful bond I feel with God’s spirit, and the emptiness of my life without his presence.

Bono articulates what each of us, who have forsaken the world for the salvation of Jesus, know and live each day. The song is a wondrous anthem to our tight connection to the heart of Christ.

I was born
I was born
I was born to be with you
In this space and time
After that and ever after I haven't had a clue
Only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart black and blue


Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love can heal such a scar



I was born
I was born to sing for you
I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry, it was a joyful noise ...



Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love can heal such a scar



Justified till we die, you and I will magnify
The Magnificent
Magnificent



Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love unites our hearts



Justified till we die, you and I will magnify
The Magnificent
Magnificent
Magnificent
