When you are freed by Jesus from all sin

And come down off the cross a new born man,

The joy that floods your heart will then begin

Like Jews from Babylon that homeward ran.

The chains of slavery are now removed;

You climb from darkness to a warming light.

The promise of salvation has been proved

For now you’re led with peace and fresh delight.

It seems the very hills sing out in glee,

And all the birds praise Jesus with one voice:

“Another soul is saved! Now glory be!”

The Holy Spirit swells and we rejoice.

That rustling sound you hear is clapping trees;

The news of your redemption’s on the breeze!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For ye shall go out with joy,

and be led forth with peace:

the mountains and the hills shall break forth

before you into singing,

and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Isaiah 55:12 KJV

12-1-14 If God Be For Us

the-cross-and-victory

A war is raging right outside your door;

It may be even in your own abode,

Or further nigh within your very core.

It’s Satan fighting hard to be unbowed.

He has the souls of most within his grip,

And we as soldiers of the living Son

Do battle for them all with gospel scrip

Redeemed upon the cross already won.

If God is on our side, who dare oppose?

He sacrificed His Son that we might live

And victory is gained for those who chose

To follow Christ with all His love to give.

Be brave, my brother, what is there to fear?

Now share the Good News boldly, loud and clear!

 If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31
