Imperishable Seed

Of those who have fallen asleep
We are the firstfruits He will keep
In Christ our victory, is our Truth
Our Jesus is the point of our pursuit.

Imperishable seed
Sow your harvest inside of me
Plough our fields and penetrate
The hard soils of sin and hate
Life giving, living vine
Graft us into life divine.

The crushed son has borne the wrath
And borne it all on our behalf
A living Hope-A sure salvation
Now born again through His resurrection

Imperishable seed
Answer to our every need
Open our eyes and open our doors
Show us what you made us for
Atoning, living sacrifice
It is all of God in Christ.
