Today I thought I'd share this song with you, 'Hallelujah' by Casting Crowns. It's such a beautiful expression of praise to God for what He has done and is going to do. Starting with creation, then to the fall of man into sin and God sending His Son to save those who come to Him, to the second coming of the Lord.
Hope you are blessed by it...
On the morning of creation
Father, Son and the Spirit rise
As they set the world in motion
The morning of the first sunrise
A symphony of golden sunlight
Dancing in the Father's eyes
He gazes at His masterpiece
As all creation cries
Man shakes the fist at heaven
The breath of God still in his lungs
A brokenhearted Father grieves
In love He sends His only Son
He was bruised for our transgressions
Crushed and buried in the ground
As the sunrise finds an empty tomb
The redeemed of God resound
Holy quiet grips the night
The morning of the last sunrise
Broken slumber, blinding light
Nations tremble at the sight
The Son of Man just split the sky
Every saint and every scoffer
Every king and every pauper
At the name of Jesus all fall face down
From holy ground we'll rise
To meet the Bridegroom in the sky
From Earth to Heaven reigns the Son
*Note: Meaning of the word hallelujah: God be praised (uttered in worship or as an expression of rejoicing).
We can rejoice that God made this world and all that is in it. We can rejoice that when sin entered the world God sent His Son Jesus Christ to redeem us. And we can rejoice that He will return one day and make all things new again.
He keeps His promises and His love endures forever.
"And from the throne came a voice saying,
'Praise our God,
all you his servants,
you who fear him,
small and great.'
Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready..." Revelation 19:5-6
