Boldly I Approach (The Art Of Celebration) – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Rend Collective’s Boldly I Approach works better than I thought it would at first.
The lyrics are as thoughtful and strong as most of their output. And their folk-music styling makes it accessible to sing.

The lyrics:
By grace alone somehow I stand
Where even angels fear to tread
Invited by redeeming love
Before the throne of God above
He pulls me close with nail-scarred hands
Into His everlasting arms
When condemnation grips my heart
And satan tempts me to despair
I hear the voice that scatters fear
The Great I Am The Lord is here
Oh praise the One who fights for me
And shields my soul eternally
Boldly I approach your throne
Blameless now I’m running home
By your blood I come
Welcomed as your own
Into the arms of majesty
Behold the bright and risen Son
More beauty than this world has known
I’m face to face with love Himself
His perfect spotless righteousness
A thousand years, a thousand tongues
Are not enough to sing His praise
Chorus x 2
This is the art of celebration
Knowing were free from condemnation
Oh praise the One, praise the One
Who made an end to all my sin
Repeat bridge
