The One Who Saves

I know I have been posting a lot of song lyrics lately...but the Lord has really been speaking to my heart via music. I go through these phases where music seems like the best way for me to connect with the heart of my Savior. It's certainly not (nor should be) the only way, but it is a good way.

There is something sweet about waking up in the morning with a praise on your heart. It gives me comfort throughout my day, and in a lot of ways keeps me focused. Not on the tasks I have to complete, but on the One for whom I do the tasks. It helps keep my eyes fixed on Him, instead of my all-too-often tendency of fixing my eyes on myself.

And it's just good for me to affirm these truths and lift them up as praises.

Come join the song, lift your voice
As heaven and earth give praise
Fall to your knees at the feet
Of the Son of the One true God

Turn from old ways, lift your eyes
For the kingdom of God is here
Open your heart, offer all
For Jesus Christ is here

We have found our hope
We have found our peace
We have found our rest
In the One who loves

He will light the way
He will lead us home
As we offer all
To the One who saves us

Call on the name that is hope
Jesus, the Son of God
Lord over all, He is good
And His mercy endures always

His love endures
Forever His love endures
Forever His love endures
Forever and ever

Praise God for the One who saves...
