Jesus death paid for much more

When I’m lying around
Feeling sick yet again
Wondering if this is it
Will this struggle never end?

I remember Your promises
The words you gave to me
About harvests of nations
And lost years more than reprieved
Of fruitfulness that blesses many people
And releasing captives to be God’s children

Jesus death paid for much more than this
For our healing, every cut of His flesh
Every drop of His blood, cleansing us from all sin
His resurrection raising us to new life in Him

When I see what is happening in my nation today
Our indigenous people ignored and cast away
And refugees who need our help instead incarcerated
And climate change ignored and farms devastated

I remember the promise
The words you gave to us
About a Spirit filled nation
And I lean on You in trust
For Your fruitfulness that blesses many people
And releasing captives to be God’s children

Jesus death paid for much more than this
For our healing, every cut of His flesh
Every drop of His blood, cleansing us from all sin
His resurrection raising us to new life in Him

When I see bad things happening all around the world
Wars, slavery, starvation, man’s inhumanity to man
People grasping for power in anyway they can
Our planets struggling to survive the greediness of man

I remember Your promises
The words you gave to me
About harvests of nations
And lost years more than reprieved
Of fruitfulness that blesses many people
And releasing captives to be God’s children

Jesus death paid for much more than this
For our healing, every cut of His flesh
Every drop of His blood, cleansing us from all sin
His resurrection raising us to new life in Him

Rules and regulations will not rescue, will not save us
Laws have their place but can’t remove our fears or change us
Governments and ideologies cannot save us from our sin
And our hurts and grief’s can’t be healed by wars or incarceration

A full revelation of the glory of Jesus
In the hearts minds and lives of all of His people so precious
Is our only hope, our only salvation
The only way forward for this planet and its nations
