"Ao eterno Rei" ("The Eternal King")

Just one thing I ask: to dwell in the house of the Lord.

A song that came from of a moment of deep intimacy with God. “Ao eterno Rei” (The Eternal King), from singer and missionary Ana Lúcia from the Brazilia community Canção Nova, expresses the true desire of the soul to meet God.

“Just one thing I ask: to dwell in the house of the Lord,” says a line of the song.

In 2014 the singer wrote in her blog what the lyrics meant for her. She said that “everything in the world is passing, but God and his love remain with us forever.” And from that strong experience of faith she did this song.
