As Sure as the Rising of the Son


It is accomplished, it is finished, it is done
The fulfillment of God’s promise in the Son
As he declares the victory in his final breath
He is made our Savior by obedience unto death

Sin is punished we are forgiven
Cosmic powers are undone
Man is liberated and death is destroyed
The light of immortality has come

God and man are reconciled
The enemy becomes His child
A new heaven and earth will one day dawn
As sure as the rising of the Son!

On the third day the dawn breaks
The first day of covenant grace
The temple rises up and what a noise it makes
Resounding through eternity is praise

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed
The Lord is risen, He is risen indeed
Any be his freedom we are freed
Christ is risen indeed!

The miracle of miracles
that changes everything
The grave and death are both transformed
By the healing in His wings

In the resurrection story
Is the new and living way
Hallelujah what a glory
Hallelujah what a day!

Death is defeated and life is completed
In Him we overcome
The corpse has awoken- Death’s power Is broken
And victory is Won!

Sin is punished we are forgiven
Cosmic powers are undone
Man is liberated and death is destroyed
The light of immortality has come

God and man are reconciled
The enemy becomes His child
A new heaven and earth will one day dawn
As sure as the rising of the Son!

Prepare Your Minds

Prepare your minds, prepare your hearts
The call to action is a call to start
With sober spirit, run the race
Based on a hope that is fixed on grace.

So in obedience, like a child
You will and God’s are reconciled.
You life to holiness conformed
Not to desires you knew before

So in obedience to the truth
You see your souls be purified
With a sincere love of all
Of those for whom Christ died

Obedience and reverence
Beget compassionate love
Obedience in obscurity
To become insignificant enough.

And so to Christ be set apart
So He completely owns your heart
Then in your weakness you are strong
And you will sing salvation’s song

The Eye of the Lord

You came to seek and save
Your eye is on the least
You see the innermost part of me
And set me as a priest
Unto my God, Unto my God

So in my desolation
In my grief and pain
You transform my frailty
In my weakness you ordain
To make a place of power
To perfect a place of peace
So make me meek  and humble
And my hope in You shall increase.

Lord take my heart and make my heart
Completely yours, my Christ
So break my heart, tear it apart
As a living  sacrifice...
For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro
throughout the earth
that He may strongly support those
whose heart is completely His.
For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro
throughout the earth
that He may strongly support those
whose heart is completely His.
