4/23/17 Through 4/29/17

4/23/17 Through 4/29/17

Doubt no longer but believe
The grace for faith now all receive
But some reject it out of pride
And thus begin a downward slide

Lord, look at our society
How they despise our faith in Thee
They think that they can make the rules
But show themselves no more than fools

Help us boldly to proclaim
The strength and power of Jesus' name
May our daily sacrifice
In them, a longing, there entice.

That those we meet might come to know
The Holy Spirit You bestow
Then born again from up above
Our culture turn to one of love

Forever of Your goodness
And praises I will sing
Forever is Your kindness
Oh good and gracious King

The sky proclaims Your wonder
For none like You exist
Your voice a mighty thunder
Youe breath a gentle mist

No prison now can hold the word
With vision now no longer blurred
The Son of God became a man
To rescue us from Satan's plan

By giving of Himself complete
The power of sin did He defeat
And cast away the darkest night
By bringing everlasting light

Witnesses of righteousness
He came for those who will confess
the obstinent who hide the sin
May never His salvation win

For all have sinned and crucified
The Son of God who bled and died
It seemed as such a tragedy
But truly it has set us free

Would I be glad to suffer now
for witnessing to Him
Could I be strong and thus allow
My pride to now grow dim?

Or would I cower in the face
Of ridicule and scorn
With shame of my rejected grace
Awake to rue the morn?

Out on the sea alone, afraid
Against the wind they rowed and prayed
Then on the water drawing near
They heard, "It's I, no need to fear."

Then as they turned to look around
Behold, the yonder shore was found
Within an instant fear was gone
And Christ alone relied upon

How many times in every life
We feel afraid amid the strife
But if we look in spite of fear
We too can see, the Lord is near.
