God Breathed

dandelion-463928_1920 (1)

In the beginning was God,
Maker of heaven and earth,
In His likeness He made,
Man from dust and clay.

Something precious began that day,
Gift of life He gave…

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Something precious began that day,
When God breathed.

The fall of man in shame,
But God’s plan would redeem,
This Messiah, conceived,
Came for all who believe.

Precious Savior born that day,
Gift of life He gave…

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Precious Savior born that day,
When God breathed.

Then on the cross,
You bore God’s wrath,
And You took our sins away.
(repeat)

But You rose from the grave,
Gift of life You gave.
(repeat)

God breathed,
God breathed,
In His love He breathed,
Precious Savior rose that day,
When God breathed.

He gave a Helper to guide the way,
Holy Spirit come we pray,
God breathe…

Then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
(Genesis 2:7 ESV)

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
(Luke 2:11-12 ESV)

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.
(Luke 23:46 ESV)

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. (John 20:21-22 ESV)

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)

By The Blood Of The King

art-2092530_1920

The sin of Adam was passed on to me,
Debt handed down from a long family tree,
I was bankrupt working for the things of men,
Earning the payment for the wages of sin.

But Christ paid my debt at Calvary,
I was bought by the blood of the King,
Chosen in love, adopted and redeemed,
I was bought by the blood of the King.

An inheritance was given to me,
I’m sealed with the Spirit, my guarantee,
I’m an heir with Christ, but so undeserving,
No longer bound by sin, yet I’m still struggling.

This inheritance for sinners like us,
Brothers and sisters in the family of God,
And we were once dead, but now we’re alive,
Buried and raised with the Lord Jesus Christ.

For Christ paid our debt at Calvary,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
Chosen in love, adopted and redeemed,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
We were bought by the blood – of the King.

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
(Galatians 4:4-7 ESV)

Two Songs

audience-868074_1920Happy songs have grown silent,
Their melodies are lost,
Justice flows down in violence,
Like God’s wrath to the cross.

Judgment turns joy to mourning,
Voices cry with lament,
There’s a flood of fear falling,
A lyric of regret.

And the song goes on and on,
It goes on and on,
On and on.

But happy songs never cease,
From the stage near God’s throne,
Where thousands rise from their seats,
With the band called His Own.

For when His Own play their strings,
In chords of righteousness,
Undeserving voices sing,
Of Christ and holiness.

And the song goes on and on,
It goes on and on,
On and on.

Voices

speech-icon-2797263_1280

My ears are full of doubts and deceitfulness,
Coming from destructive voices in the grave,
Now I’m groaning inside because of their lies,
And they will not cease until You come to save.

For You are not a God who delights in sin,
So silence the enemy in Your justice,
Protect me from their noise and I will rejoice,
Along with those defended by Righteousness.

Lord, give attention to the sound of our cries,
As we join the voices singing for Your fame,
Our tongues have been raised for Your glorious praise,
Because You are The Voice of all the redeemed.

Behind the lines

Psalm 5 ESV
Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.

O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.

The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.

For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue. Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
