It Is Finished!

Knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:9-11

Procuring our peace through His pain,
Christ paid the ultimate price.
It is finished, it is done,
so patient in His sacrifice.

Pausing to fold His grave clothes,
His perfect forbearance won,
so patient in His sacrifice,
it is finished, it is done.

Wearing now garments of glory,
He knew His blood would suffice,
it is finished, it is done,
so patient in His sacrifice.

Conquering death, once and for all
He proved to be God’s only Son.
So patient in His sacrifice,
it is finished, it is done.

Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever.  Hebrews 7:25-28

Look to Jesus

Jesus then said, “I am the one who raises the dead to life! Everyone who has faith in me will live, even if they die.” John 11:25

The song of the ruthless is silenced,
But righteousness gives voice.
Look to Jesus and live,
With all your heart rejoice!

Christ came to do His Father’s will;
He redeems and forgives.
With all your heart rejoice!
Look to Jesus and live.

So patient in His sacrifice,
Offering His life by choice.
Look to Jesus and live,
With all your heart rejoice!

Not rushing His moment of glory,
He gave all He had to give.
With all your heart rejoice!
Look to Jesus and live.

Strength Renewed

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. Galatians 6:9

Renew us daily in Your strength, Lord.
Morning by morning, keep us awake,
proclaiming Your enduring promise.
Help us persevere for Your Name’s sake.

Steadfast and abounding in Your work,
planting the seeds of eternal bliss,
we will persevere for your Name’s sake,
proclaiming Your enduring promise.

Praying at all times, we won’t lose heart.
Of Your Good News we share and partake.
Proclaiming Your enduring promise,
we will persevere for Your Name’s sake.

As we wait, we will not grow weary,
for Your grace is like a father’s kiss.
Help us persevere for Your Name’s sake,
living out Your amazing promise!

For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows present grace and favor and future glory, honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 (Amplified)

Keep Me

O keep me, Lord, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed or disappointed, for my trust and my refuge are in You. Psalm 25:20

To the only God, my refuge,
My rock and shield, so true and just.
Keep me in Your peace unfailing,
In You alone I place my trust.

The glory of Your majesty,
Now and forever prevailing.
In You alone I place my trust,
Keep me in Your hope unfailing.

To live soberly and righteous,
Crucifying all worldly lust.
Keep me in Your grace unfailing,
In You alone I place my trust.

Lord Jesus Christ, O Blameless One,
Help my sinful soul from ailing.
In You alone I place my trust,
Keep me in the faith unfailing.

Guard my soul and deliver me,
Without You, Lord, I am but dust.
Keep me in Your love unfailing,
In You alone I place my trust.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.

Jude 1:24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
