Sabbath Rest – The LORD is My Salvation

How beautiful to know that –
The grace of God has reached for me
And pulled me from the raging sea
And I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation

The grace of God has reached for me
And pulled me from the raging sea
And I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation

I will not fear when darkness falls
His strength will help me scale these walls
I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun
The Lord is my salvation

CHORUS
Who is like the Lord our God?
Strong to save, faithful in love
My debt is paid and the vict’ry won
The Lord is my salvation

My hope is hidden in the Lord
He flow’rs each promise of His Word
When winter fades I know spring will come
The Lord is my salvation

In times of waiting, times of need
When I know loss, when I am weak
I know His grace will renew these days
The Lord is my salvation

And when I reach my final day
He will not leave me in the grave
But I will rise,
He will call me home
The Lord is my salvation

Glory be to God the Father
Glory be to God the Son
Glory be to God the Spirit
The Lord is our salvation

Sabbath Rest – All Hail the King of Heaven

Another new hymn from Matt Papa and Matt Boswell. I think it’s a keeper!

All hail the King of Heaven, Christ the Lord of all
Whom thundering angels circle ‘round, ablaze with awe
Let now the Hallelujah of earth in glad refrain
Ascend the throne, to Him belongs immortal praise

Chorus:
All hail the King of heaven
Creation join together
Let endless praises crown His name
All hail the King of heaven

All hail the Great Redeemer, Who so humbly came
The Lamb of our salvation, o for sinners slain
Let now one loud Hosanna resound from shore to shore
You nations say, “His kingdom reigns, forevermore!”

Let praise of nations rise now as a symphony
To sound the endless wonders of His majesty
Let every heart adore Him, the great and small the same
Through generations ever let His anthem ring!

Sabbath Rest – Sing We The Song of Emmanuel

Another new(ish) Christmas Hymn! Enjoy~

Sing we the song of Emmanuel
This the Christ who was long foretold
Lo in the shadows of Bethlehem
Promise of dawn now our eyes behold.
God Most High in a manger laid
Lift your voices and now proclaim
Great and glorious, Love has come to us
Join now with the hosts of heaven

Come we to welcome Emmanuel
King who came with no crown or throne
Helpless He lay, the Invincible
Maker of Mary, now Mary’s son
O what wisdom to save us all
Shepherds, sages, before Him fall
Grace and majesty, what humility
Come on bended knee, adore Him

Go spread the news of Emmanuel
Joy and peace for the weary heart
Lift up your heads, for your King has come
Sing for the Light overwhelms the dark
Glory shining for all to see
Hope alive, let the gospel ring
God has made a way, He will have the praise
Tell the world His name is Jesus

Sabbath Rest – Oh Give Thanks!

Tis the season – for giving thanks! Enjoy this new hymn from the Matt Boswell/Matt Papa writing team!

Oh, give thanks to God forever
For all He’s done, for all He’s given
For every grace, bring every praise
To the giver of all, give thanks

Oh, give thanks to the Father, spring of life, Lord of love
The bountiful, fount of all provision
Come rejoice in his goodness, count each blessing that comes
From Heav’n to Earth, now from Earth to Heaven

Oh, give thanks to God forever
For all He’s done, for all He’s given
For every grace, bring every praise
To the giver of all, give thanks

Oh, give thanks unto Jesus, sing of his saving love
The bread of life, broken for redemption
How He carried the cross to make us daughters and sons
Exalted now, the King of our salvation

Oh, give thanks to God forever
For all He’s done, for all He’s given
For every grace, bring every praise
To the giver of all, give thanks

Oh, give thanks to God forever
For all He’s done, for all He’s given
For every grace, bring every praise
To the giver of all, give thanks

Oh, give thanks to the spirit, fire of joy, bond of love
O breath of God, help our hearts remember
Purge our pride with your kindness, plant this song deep in us
For all the gifts, greater is the giver

Oh, give thanks to God forever
For all He’s done, for all He’s given
For every grace, bring every praise
To the giver of all, give thanks

To the giver of all, give thanks
To the giver of all, give thanks

Sabbath Rest – Before You I Kneel (A worker’s prayer)

We’re heading back to our SOWER work after spending most of this summer up at our beloved Vermont Cabin. We’ve soaked in that beauty and surrounded ourselves with family. It’s been truly a gift. But it’s time to get back to work! This song come up on my Pandora play list this morning, and it seemed so very fitting. May this always be our prayer….

Before You I kneel, my Master and Maker,
To offer the work of my hands.
For this is the day You’ve given Your servant;
I will rejoice and be glad
For the strength I have to live and breathe,
For each skill Your grace has given me,
For the needs and opportunities
That will glorify Your great name.

Before You I kneel and ask for Your goodness
To cover the work of my hands.
For patience and peace to shape all my labor,
Your grace for thorns in my path.

Flow within me like a living stream,
Wear away the stones of pride and greed
‘Til Your ways are dwelling deep in me
And a harvest of life is grown.

Before You we kneel, our Master and Maker;
Establish the work of our hands.
And order our steps to seek first Your kingdom
In every small and great task.
May we live the gospel of Your grace,
Serve Your purpose in our fleeting days,
Then our lives will bring eternal praise
And all glory to Your great name.
