Sing to The House of God

Everlasting are You Lord Almighty,
Uncreated and undefined,
Lowly are we Your still waters,
Jesus, Our Savior, turn us into wine.

Father of Forgiveness, Mercy, and Peace,
Giver of faith and Son you sent,
Shining Your Star upon the birth of Truth,
Alighting on lost souls in New Advent.

Good Shepherd, Deliverer, Firstborn Son,
Light of all! Son of the Most High!
Radiate Your radical love through us,
Present us clean before the Father’s Eyes.

Holy Spirit, Breath of The Almighty,
Spirit of the fear of the Lord,
Everlasting Kiss and comfort to our souls,
Unite Our Christ to the Father’s restore.

O Faith! O Hope! O Sweet Charity!
Become our clarion call,
Lift all eyes to your glorious kingdom,
Jesus, you’re our everything! Our all in all!

My Song For Today

Savior Of The World

sunrise

Savior of the world,
You gave your life for me,
Savior of the world,
Let me be Your hands and feet,
And walk within your Kingdom,
Where love of God and neighbor meet.

Savior of the world,
You heard my lonesome bleat,
Savior of the world,
I’m lost, thirsty, incomplete,
Shepherd me to green pastures
Comfort me in your Mercy seat.

Savior of the world,
Your mercy I adore,
Savior of the world,
Take my life and give me yours,
Let mercy shine from my heart,
Loving the least and ignored.

Sweet Savior I adore!
Gentle King open Your door,
Prepare a room for me,
So I may praise you ever more!

Unshakable

Fragile and unpredictable is our future pulled by the gravity of time.  The human facade has no capacity to slow the consequence as all are hurried towards mortality.  Death is certain by an unpredictable fate. Nevertheless, hope in the very conqueror of death, the Christ of God, provides a peace unbound from the effects of time. Although we see our crumbling realities through the lens of hope, we are unshakable.

Unshakable

Once more He will shake
The earth and heaven
surviving the quake
Cannot be shaken

Lord make me unshakable
Lord make me unshakable
Amidst the ruins of mortality
Toppling soft facades of self confidence
Collapsing into sad duality
Lord make me unshakable.

Uncontrollable
A consuming fire
Unstoppable
Wrath’s funeral pyre

Worthless and sinful
Burn and crumble
Remaining faithful
Are unshakable

Stone towers of love
Stand before their Master
A new Kingdom stands willing and able
A new Kingdom stands unshakable

Lord make me unshakable
Lord make me unshakable
Amidst the ruins of mortality
Toppling soft facades of self confidence
Collapsing into sad duality
Lord make me unshakable.

25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”[e] 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:25-29)

His Peace,
Chris
