We Belong To The Day – Sunday Songs (Queensland General Assembly Opening Service)

Leave a comment

A wonderful service at a great facility to hear a clear message about the urgency of responding to Jesus’ call that prayer be raised up for workers to be sent to a waiting harvest field.
The opening of the Queensland Assembly at the Queensland Theological College saw the installation of Rev. Mike O’Connor as Moderator by outgoing Moderator Rev. Greg Watt.

Mike preached from Matthew 9 and reminded everyone present (and himself) that the call to reach out starts not with strategy or persons, but with prayer. Strategy and persons flow from God’s answer to that prayer.

One of the songs was Michael Morrow’s We Belong To The Day.

The lyrics:
We belong to the day
To the day that is to come
When the night falls away
And our Saviour will return
For the glory of the King is in our hearts
On that day we will be seen for what we are
We belong to the day
Let us journey in the light
Put on faith, put on love
As our armour for the fight
And the promise of salvation in our eyes
On that day the proud will fall, the faithful rise
Strong as a mighty rock
Our refuge in the coming wrath
The heart of the bride belongs to Jesus, Jesus
The earth in its turning stops
To marvel at the Son of God
And all of that day belongs to Jesus, Jesus
We belong to the day
We were bought with Jesus’ blood
Soon he comes as the judge
In the power of his word
We must tell of his salvation while we wait
For the day when Jesus comes will be too late
Oh, if ten thousand years go by we will wait
Let us tell of his great love, he will come
For his patience means salvation!
