I'm walking through the bright white gates
Breathing in and out your grace
All around me melodies rise
That echo with the joy inside
So I start to sing
But I can't sing loud enough
I can't sing loud enough
When I'm singing for You my God
I can't sing loud enough
I can't sing loud enough
When I'm singing for You my God
With a thunder roll and a brilliant light
Your glory boasts and the heavens shine
The saints and angels stand in awe
Captured by the beauty of it all
So I fall to my knees
But I can't bow low enough
I can't bow low enough
At the vision of You my God
I can't bow low enough
I can't bow low enough
At the vision of You my God
I can't hold it all inside
I'm reaching for the One who brought me out of death and into life
But I can't lift my hands high enough
Lift my hands high enough
When I'm reaching for You my God
I can't lift my hands high enough
Lift my hands high enough
When I'm reaching for You my God
Oh I'm reaching for You my God
I'm reaching for You
I'm reaching for You
I'm reaching for You my God

    Cont... But no matter how the perfect form... You still cannot lift my hands high enough or bow down low enough at the vision of you my god. God is still just sooo much more powerful then even our perfect form can possible even take us to believe. Our minds are just so suttle and small. Thats why he is the boss! Ok, i am done.

    Chielo to me means the transition between life and death so to speak. Your life on earth ends and you meet your maker and no longer have your earthly body but become spiritual and free with god. Perfect form.

    Phil is definitely singing about heaven ("bright white gates", "saints and angels stand in awe"). The title "Cielo" means "Heaven" in Spanish.

    It's a beautiful song and he expresses that he can't efface himself enough nor reach high enough to praise God.
