Touch The Sky – of Dirt and Grace – Hillsong UNITED



Touch The Sky was on of those crazy ones – with 1 hour left of the Mt. Arbel park open we ran up the hill set up and went for it! Band sharing mixes – wind blowing – Kobes sitting on the cliff! We got it in the can. A few days later with most of the Band gone home – we went to Masada and realised that the lowest point on Earth, -424m was in the area around the dead sea. Joel mused that the paradox was too great to let slip – so we took what we had, a guitar, and ipad and 2 mics into a field recorder and filmed the first verse from this – the lowest point on earth. We hope you enjoy the visuals and the dichotomy of them that we hope are in line with the lyrics and their inspiration — Matthew 5.

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

CHORUS:
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
The gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

BRIDGE:
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
