Bewildering Grace

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men. Titus 2:11

Seeing dimly now
but soon face-to-face
take up Light’s armor –
stand firm and stand free.
Love and peace await
within His embrace
seeing dimly now
but soon face-to-face.
Father God has found
a reason for grace
yet His great mercy
still bewilders me!
Seeing dimly now
but soon face-to-face,
take up Light’s armor –
stand firm and stand free!

Light To The Nations

Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.”  Isaiah 28:16

Israel’s shepherd and Israel’s stone,
promised Messiah, revealed and foretold,
Zion’s foundation, His glory is shown,
Israel’s shepherd and Israel’s stone.
Strong root of Jesse to graft in His own,
gathers His people and adds to His fold,
Israel’s shepherd and Israel’s stone,
promised Messiah, revealed and foretold.
David’s descendant now sits on the throne,
Israel’s shepherd and Israel’s stone,
Remnant of Jacob, you’re never alone,
Light to the nations, to have and to hold.
Israel’s shepherd and Israel’s stone,
Promised Messiah, revealed and foretold.

Light of the World

I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46

Once bound by darkness, but now living free,
To walk in God’s light and rest in His grace.
A glorious truth, my heart would agree,
Once bound by darkness, but now living free.
In His rich love, Christ gave Himself for me,
All hope is found in His saving embrace.
Once bound by darkness, but now living free,
To walk in God’s light and rest in His grace.
