Holy and True, my Lord, my God.

December 19, 2014.

Holy and True, my Lord, my God,
Holy and True, divine.
Blessed are you, my Lord, my God,
Blessed are you, sublime.

Woe is to him, who will not see,
Woe is to him, below,
Take pity on him, my Lord, my God,
Take pity on him, and him show.

For you are supreme, above all else,
For you are supreme o’er all.
Let the blind see, my Lord, my God,
Let the blind see, let them not fall!

Holy and True, my Lord, my God,
Holy and True, divine.
Blessed are you, my Lord, my God,
Blessed are you, sublime.

Take us now, my Lord, my God,
Take us now in your love.
Let us feel, and deeply know,
Let us feel You who are above.

Mercy and grace, my Lord, my God,
Mercy and grace unmeasured!
In triumph we shot the victors chant,
In triumph we shout in pleasure!

Holy and True, my Lord, my God,
Holy and True, divine.
Blessed are you, my Lord, my God,
Blessed are you, sublime.

Use us now, Lord, put us to work,
Use us now as we can,
Give us Your will and passionate heart,
Give us Your will, Your flame fan.

Gift upon gift, You richly bestow,
Gift upon gift You give.
But who are we, my Lord, my God,
But who are we to live?

Holy and True, my Lord, my God,
Holy and True, divine.
Blessed are you, my Lord, my God,
Blessed are you, sublime.

Terrible the cost, of sin’s sharp knife,
Terrible the cost to You.
Why did you give, my Lord, my God,
Why did you give and pay our due?

Thank you so, my Lord, my God,
Thank you so for your love,
Though we did nothing, you gave us all,
Though we did nothing, you gave the dove.

Holy and True, my Lord, my God,
Holy and True, divine.
Blessed are you, my Lord, my God,
Blessed are you, sublime.

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”
(Romans 3:21-26)

Suggested Daily Reading: Romans 1-6.

Grace and peace.
