The Rage of Grace

Let the whole world tremble before the Lord tonight
As we declare the power of his Might
For the power of His glory has raised
The Holy One who is worthy of praise
From the starburst of creation
To the joy of incarnation
He has finished our salvation
So every speculation
Against the knowledge of our God raised
Shall be destroyed by His Holy Rage

The Rage of Grace gives the power to see
In the rage of grace the demons  flee.
Every lofty thing is crushed
And the frail children of dust
Are endowed with a trust
That shall bring nations to their knees

The power of His glory
Will make these vessels holy
A place for  God to abide
To Him and through Him and in Him we hide.

Surely Goodness

Surely Goodness and mercy follow me
The Lord has gently pursued
Love notes from heaven arrive every day
Like manna from heaven they are my soulfood

Surely goodness, surely mercy
Surely He is tender and kind
Surely goodness, surely mercy
So if I seek them I will find

Goodness I have received
The moment His word was believed
Now all my days
His tender ways
Sustains my praise
In Christ I live and move and breathe.

Surely goodness, surely mercy
Surely He is tender and kind
Surely goodness, surely mercy
So if I seek them I will find

Seek the Child of Heaven

Seek the child of heaven
Arise and shine with His light
Pure and holy in His Presence
We see the son and we see the Most High
The One who cannot be seen
We see mystery as see God die
His purpose for everything

How can it be?
How can it be?

Deep is His dying breath
Deep is the sleep of death
But depths of darkness cannot chain
The Fountain of life who forever shall reign
So darkness flees
As deep calls to deep
And the ocean of darkness
Is exchanged
For an ocean of grace
