Remember Me

February 8, 2020—

As we become distracted in our day-to-day lives, at times the story of Jesus’s death and resurrection seems like just that—a story, from far away and long ago. Today’s song by Andrew Peterson helps bring this story back to life, along with our roles and hope in it: “Remember Me.”

We know what the law requires

But we pile our sins up higher and higher

Who can ascend that hill?

And I am a sheep who’s gone astray

I’ve turned aside in my own way

Have mercy on me, Son of David

Today, let us pray for God’s forgiveness, and that He might open our eyes to see Him in everyone around us—so that we can live the lives He has planned.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom
Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom

Who can ascend the hill of the Lord?
The one who utters no untrue word
Whose hands are clean, whose heart is pure
Who can ascend that hill?
There is none righteous, no not one
We are prodigal daughters and wayward sons
We don't know the half of the hurt we've done
The countless we have killed
Our priests are cheats, our prophets are liars
We know what the law requires
But we pile our sins up higher and higher
Who can ascend that hill?
And I am a sheep who's gone astray
I've turned aside in my own way
Have mercy on me, Son of David

Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom
Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom

Now hear the voice of the Word made man
The spotless sacrificial lamb
A body You gave me, here I am
I have come to do Your will
And no one takes my life You see
I lay it down now willingly
And I will draw all men to Me
When I ascend that hill
On Sunday You came as a king
On Monday washed the temple clean
On Tuesday You told them what will be
On Wednesday You waited patiently
On Thursday You said, "It is time,
I'll drink this cup 'cause it is mine"
On Friday Lord, You poured the wine
Like a thief on a cross as he hung there dying
For crimes there were no use denying
The righteous Judge hung right beside him
How could I not recognize You?
How could I not recognize You?
How could I not recognize my Lord?

My Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom
Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom

Just days ago the sky was stone
The trees were standing stripped to the bone
You could hear creation grown
But I write these words on an April day
And the earth is drinking the early rain
The hills remember green again
And we've heard this story all our lives
Still we feel the pain of the crucified
And the end still comes as a surprise
But before the breath there in the tomb
Before our joy sprang from the womb
You saw a day that's coming soon
When the Son will stand on the mount again
With an army of angels at His command
And the earth will split like a hull of the sea
Wherever Jesus plants His feet
And up from the earth the dead will rise
Like spring trees clothed in petals of white
Singing the songs of the radiant bride
And we will always be, always be
Always be with the Lord
We will always be, always be
Always be with the Lord
We will always, always be, be with Jesus

My Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom
Lord, remember me
When You come into Your kingdom
