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

My God Renews

When I’m feeling overwhelmed
With troubles fencing me in
And it seems I have no answers
Can’t see the way to freedom
I choose to put my faith in You
Declaring what Your Word says is true:

My God renews, restores, rebuilds
Rebirths, resurrects, re-creates, and raises up
Lifting to new life those that sin declared were dead
Making heavenly kings of the poor and wounded

Rebirths, resurrects, re-creates, and raises up

By the actions of the church

And nothing I can say or do protects the innocent
I remember how Jesus death , which looked like defeat
You turned into a victory that all mankind can save
And I choose to put my faith in You
Declaring what Your Word says is true:

My God renews, restores, rebuilds
Rebirths, resurrects, re-creates, and raises up
Lifting to new life those that sin declared were dead

How Can It Be?

How can it be Lord
That day to day
My bones ache with weariness
My muscles cry out in pain
And I have no energy
Other than to exist for the day?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That You live in me today
Touching my whole body
With Your love eternally
Yet in sickness I live
Yearning to be free?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That Your stripes were for my healing
That the punishment You took
Was to give me health and freedom
When I lie here in sickness
And pain is my companion?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That You died for all my sins
Took sinful me to the grave
And gave me Your life to live
Yet I struggle each day
To find the energy to move?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

There is no sin I’ve done
That Your blood does not cover
And You have given me
Your righteousness forever
And I’m living in Your glory
Where satan has no power

For I know it to be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power

Let the fulness of Your victory
Be seen in me today
Your power over sickness
Your restoring, healing Grace
Your presence and Your love
My eternal embrace

For I know it to be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power
