Oh, love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give you back the life I owe
And in your ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be

My life is not my own
It’s yours
My life is not my own
I know it’s yours

Oh, light that follows all my way
I yield my flickering torch to thee
And my heart restores its borrowed ray
That in your sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be

So light a fire in my heart
And I’ll burn for you
So light a fire in my heart
And I’ll burn for you

Oh, joy, that seeks me through the pain
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow through the rain
And feel the promise is not in vain
That morn shall tearless be

So anoint me with joy
And joyful I will be
So anoint me with joy
And joyful I will be

Oh, cross that’s lifing up my head
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust life’s glory dead
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be

We will sing:
Holy, holy
Is the King of Kings
And we will sing:
Holy, holy
Is the King of Kings

On that day we will sing
We will join with the angels and we will sing

Unka Glen: Secular music and bleeped out cuss words, oh my!

unkaglen:

wholesome thinking asked: Hello! what’s your opinion on listening to worldly music by non-Christian artists? Also what do you think about watching TV, not bad shows with sex and bleeped out swear words, but other more child friendly stuff? I’m struggling with knowing if it’s OK for me to…

I wrote something related to this here when I was asked if I listen to secular metal or just Christian metal. I love Unkaglen’s answer to this question, and I think it goes along a lot with this post.

Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.
