|Song by Lasya V|
I wrote this song as a celebration of what God has been and done for me. A ‘centre of gravity’ is a point from which the weight of a body or system may be considered to act. I couldn’t think of a better description of the role of Jesus in my life.
When He is my center of gravity, I gain his perspective. He gives me purpose and the boldness to act on it. Jesus’ perspective is so different from ours because He sees himself in every broken reality because He is the hope for every situation. Shame came into my life through many sources but He stood as a rock defending me.
I wanted this song to be filled with hope because he does redeem the years the locusts have eaten. He had restored a relationship in my life that had nearly died and I had begun to see that promise unfold in my own life. It was in that season of joy that I looked back and realized that He would never let go of me.
So before something else would overwhelm me, I wanted to build a testimony of His faithfulness through this song. And finally, the bridge is both a declaration and an invitation into this relationship with a relentlessly good Father.
Centre of Gravity- Capo 5 C (F)
You are my center of gravity
You're the fire in my veins
You're the light of endless days
You see the broken reality
But your eyes are full of faith
For your death was no mistake
Em Am C
Jesus my wondrous savior
You wear down shame
On the rock of grace
Em Am C
You're a relentless father
You don't give up hope
On the lives that you hold
You're the redeemer of everything
From the years of loss and grief
To that promised destiny
You see the end from the beginning
And your purposes prevail
Victory is in your name
He’s the king- like no other king
He’s the son - who will return
He’s the one - we have been waiting for
You are our hope - Your name is love
Come know him now
