Behold, Behold by Caroline Cobb

Behold, Behold is the final track on her album A Home & A Hunger.
It speaks of experiencing the culmination and fulfillment of God’s redemption.

The lyrics:
Verse 1:
I see a city coming down
Like a bride in whitest gown,
Purely dressed
I see the pilgrims coming home
All creation finds shalom;
The promised rest
Pre-Chorus:
The Lamb of God will be her light
The sun will have no need to shine
Chorus 1:
Behold, behold
God makes His home with us!
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone!
O come lord, Jesus come
Verse 2:
The Lord will banish every sin
All that’s broken He will mend;
And make new
And we will see Him face to face
As He wipes our tears away;
Death is through
Pre-Chorus 2:
And all the ransomed and redeemed
From every tongue and tribe will sing
Chorus 1
Bridge:
At last the darkness
Will surrender to the light
But we unveiled in glory will forever shine
At last the powers of hell
Will drown in lakes of fire
But we will freely drink
The crystal streams of life
Come thirsty taste and see
Come hungry to the feast
Come weary find your peace
The Bride and Spirit sing
Come! Come!
Chorus 2:
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone
Oh come, Lord Jesus, come

Hold On – Sunday Songs

Hold On by Nicky Chiswell features on EMU Music’s album Worthy.
All the characteristics of Chiswell’s work: sound poetic lyrics and a strong melody.

The lyrics:
Verse 1
We have this treasure in jars of clay
To show all power is God’s
We are afflicted in every way
But we will never give up
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Chorus 1
Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
And hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us
Hold on
Verse 2
We believe and so we speak out
But it’s not about us
We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord
He has shone in our hearts
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Bridge
And though our bodies are wasting away
Our inner selves are renewed everyday
And though our bodies are wasting away
Our inner selves are renewed everyday
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Verse 2
Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
Let’s hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us….

Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
And hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us….
Hold on

From The Day – Sunday Songs

I featured From The Day from I Am They a few months ago, but I’m including it here as a Sunday Song because it’s going to feature on Sunday nights at MGPC sometime soon.

Here’s a couple of renditions:

The lyrics
Verse 1
When You found me, I was so blind
My sin was before me, I was swallowed by pride
But out of the darkness, you brought me to Your light
You showed me new mercy and opened up my eyes
Chorus
From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul
Verse 2
Where brilliant light is all around
And endless joy is the only sound
Oh, rest my heart forever now
Oh, in Your arms I’ll always be found
Bridge
My love is Yours
My heart is Yours
My life is Yours
Forever
Down Chorus
From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul
