Lyrics Of This Season

I like to make completely random playlists on iTunes that I play for a season. These songs, old and new, come to define that season in my life. The old songs remind me of days gone by that the Lord was and is forever faithful. The new songs encourage my heart, they lead me into the mystery of the Holy God. The deep truths of the songs stick in my mind and are on my lips. Here are some lyrics that have encouraged me the last two months. I pray the truths and the thoughts below spur you on to love and good deeds!

Lord Jesus come lead us
We're desperate for your touch
Oh Great and Mighty One, with one desire we come
That you would reign, that you would reign in us
We're offering up our lives, a living sacrifice
That you would reign, that you would reign in us"

"You are God with us
You're victorious
You are strong and mighty to save
For Your word stands true
There is none like You
And when all else fades
You remain"

"Let me not be blind with privilege
Give me eyes to see the pain
Let the blessing You've poured out on me
Not be spent on me in vain
Let this life be used for change"

"Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity"

"Let me know that You hear me
Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me
Let that be enough"

"Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom"

"Your blood has washed away my sin. Jesus, thank you!
The Father's wrath completely satisfied. Jesus, thank you!
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table. Jesus, thank you!"

"I see the heavens proclaiming day after day,
And I know in my heart that there must be a way
Hallelujah, we want to lift You higher,
Hallelujah, we want to lift You higher.

"if you're like me
You need hope, coffee, and melody
So sit back down
Let the world keep spinning ‘round
For yesterday's gone and today is waiting on you to show your face"

"Savior, You showed Your love, defeating our sin,
you poured out your blood.
So we praise You the Lamb that was Slain
We offer our lives to proclaim, "What a Savior!"

"yes and amen, to everything that you have done."

So...what Truths are being sung in your head?

"your love oh lord, displayed for us
as crimson covered over sinless hands.
your majesty, for all to see
raging storms and quiet cloudless days.
beautiful Jesus!
beautiful Savior!
nothing is greater, brilliant creator, friend of mine.
perfect in power, matchless in glory.
nothing is greater, brilliant creator, friend of mine.
you're powerful above this world
the universe is under your command.
your glory shines a holy light.
that leads our hearts to praise your holy name
is on our lips!"

yes and amen!!!
