Why I Hate Hillsong United

Every time Hillsong United comes out with a new album, I hate it… for like 6 months. And then… Well… I can’t explain it… Something happens…

Maybe I just didn’t understand it at first.  Maybe I was offended by its beauty.  Maybe it seemed too complicated or too simple.  I guess I just wasn’t ready for it.  But then something happens.  God opens my ears and my eyes and I start to see it for what it is…
The beautifully and eloquently spoken Gospel!
I wonder how many people feel the same way about God’s story.  The first time they hear it, they hate it.  They’re disgusted by it, even offended by its beauty!  Maybe it’s too complicated or too simple.  They’re just not ready for it.  And then something happens.  God begins to open their eyes and reveals Himself to them for who He really is.  The Creator of the universe that just wants to love them.  A loving, giving, forgiving and compassionate Father that will go to the greatest lengths just to be with them.
Give it time people…  Trust me. 
So Will I – Lyrics
God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light
And as You speak
A hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breath the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made
Every burning star
A signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I
God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I
So will I
So will I
If the stars were made to worship so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I
For if everything exists to lift You high so will I
If the wind goes where You send it so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence so will I
If the sum of all our praises still falls shy
Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times
God of salvation
You chased down my heart
Through all of my failure and pride
On a hill You created
The light of the world
Abandoned in darkness to die
And as You speak
A hundred billion failures disappear
Where You lost Your life so I could find it here
If You left the grave behind You so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done
Every part designed in a work of art called love
If You gladly chose surrender so will I
I can see Your heart
Eight billion different ways
Every precious one
A child You died to save
If You gave Your life to love them so will I
Like You would again a hundred billion times
But what measure could amount to Your desire
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind
