by no means
You knew my name.
Yet with Your hand
You calmed the storm and healed the lame.
As You spoke,
And as the crowds would gather 'round they called out,
"Holy One, are You the Holy One, who was sent by God to show the way?"
do you remember? that first step. when you felt like your feet couldn't hold you up, when life felt so surreal to believe that... this Holy one died for you. for you. for you.
do you remember? gently being held in His arms. not knowing anything yet knowing that everything would be okay. He's got it. He's got you.
do you remember? being that child of God. freely worshipping, feeling giddy whenever friday nights or sunday mornings came 'round. that fire growing to a roaring passion, knowing you've been set afire with the desire to see His glory reign in your life.
I wasn't there,
The night they came:
Those who saw and feared the miracles you made.
You took the nails,
You bore the pain.
And as they hung You on the cross and mocked you,
"Holy One, if You're the Holy One, let your God come save You from the grave."
what shall we say then? shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
by no means.
we died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? (romans 6:1-2)
I just heard the news today,
I just came to find you but they said You'd gone away.
I just wanted to hear You say, that you had to go
But that You'd be back again.
sigh. how? why? You'll come back to a world where ....
i miss you. i wish you're here with me when He comes back. i wish i could see you dance for Him. i wish i could see you smiling again.
Break of day.
Came in time to find the rock
You rolled away.
I found Your robe,
An empty grave.
And as I fell upon the ground I cried out,
"Holy One, You are the Holy One, and You came and gave Your life away."
... You're the Holy one.
the world is not supposed to be like this.
thanks to a timely reminder.... hope doesn't disappoint.
"I am the life, I am alive, I came to show the way."
