Faithfulness

April 11, 2020—

Today’s song by Matt Maher is a reminder of God’s “Faithfulness” as we wait in anticipation of Easter Sunday.

There are memories that seize my heart

But they will never steal or tear our love apart

There are victories yet to come

They are certain as the rising of the sun

Today, as we wait knowing of Jesus’s inevitable resurrection, let us reflect joyfully on the fulfillment of God’s ultimate promise, and marvel at His boundless love for us.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

In the breakers that storm my faith
God my rock and God my hope, You will prevail
You're the constant in a sea of change
What You've done and what You've said will never fail
What You've done and what You've said will never fail

Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever
Always and forever

There are memories that seize my heart
But they will never steal or tear our love apart
There are victories yet to come
They are certain as the rising of the sun
They are certain as the rising of the sun

Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever
Always and forever

From age to age the same
Your mercy never changes
Your joy it is my strength
Your goodness never changes
Your goodness never changes

Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
Always and forever
Always and forever
Always and forever
Always and forever

Glory Bound

April 6, 2020—

Today’s song of the day by Matt Maher offers us a hopeful reminder that, with Jesus’s eternal sacrifice, we are all “Glory Bound”

Well I don’t know

Which way you’re going

And I don’t know if you’re lost or found

All that I know is

You’ve been forgiven

I tell you this train is glory bound

Today, on this Monday of Holy Week, let us reflect on the sacrifice we know is coming, and rejoice in the knowledge that we’ve been saved from ourselves.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

There is a train for the brokenhearted
To carry you to the other side
There is a train for the ones forgotten
To carry you to a heavenly light

Well I don't know
Which way you're going
And I don't know if you're lost or found
All that I know is
You've been forgiven
I tell you this train is glory bound
Glory bound

There is a train for the cheats and liars
For all the hitchers looking for a ride
There is a train for the lonely drifter
Tired of walking all alone in the night

Well I don't know
Which way you're going
And I don't know if you're lost or found
All that I know is
You've been forgiven
I tell you this train is glory bound
Glory bound

So come on make some room in your heart for mercy
Come on make some room for a little grace
Come on make some room for the sinners and the saints

Well I don't know
Which way you're going
And I don't know if you're lost or found
All that I know is
You've been forgiven
I tell you this train is glory bound
Yeah I can hear
A band of angels
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
All that I know is
You've been forgiven
I tell you this train is glory bound

Glory bound, hey yeah
I tell you this train is glory bound

Today’s song by Matt Maher is an encouraging reminder that Jesus loves us, accompanies us, and guards us always in this life: “Your Love Defends Me.”

The One I'm drawing from
You are my refuge
My whole life long
Where else would I go?

The strength of my soul
Your love defends me
Your love defends me
And when I feel like I'm all alone
Your love defends me
Your love defends me

Day after day
Night after night
I will remember
You're with me in this fight
Although the battle
It rages on
The war is already won
I know the war is already won

The strength of my soul
Your love defends me
Your love defends me
And when I feel like I'm all alone
Your love defends me
Your love defends me

We sing hallelujah
You're my portion

Picket Sign

February 26, 2020—

Today’s song by Matt Maher highlights how with Jesus’s sacrifice, He came to fight for us, save us, and redeem us: “Picket Sign.”

This is Your protest

This is Your stand

Your blood poured out

For the blood on our hands

As we begin the season of Lent, let us reflect on the eternal sacrifice we know is coming—and be inspired to repentance by God’s great love.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

This is Your protest
This is Your stand
Your blood poured out
For the blood on our hands

For the accused
And all the oppressed
For every heart
Hanging on by a thread

The cross lifted up like a picket sign
You carried the weight for all mankind
You gave Your life just to give me mine
Your love lifted up like a picket sign

You are the voice
For those who can't speak
You march for love
You walk with the weak

You call for justice
Your kingdom come
In Jesus's name
All chains are undone

The cross lifted up like a picket sign
You carried the weight for all mankind
You gave Your life just to give me mine
Your love lifted up like a picket sign

Amen, amen, amen, amen

The cross lifted up like a picket sign
You carried the weight for all mankind
You gave Your life just to give me mine
Your love lifted up like a picket sign

Both arms reaching for the other side
Your love lifted up like a picket sign

Amen, amen, amen, amen

Waiting here as one

Whoa, hear the sound from heaven
Whoa, a mighty rushing wind
Whoa, we're calling for revival
God, let Your fire fall again
It's burning in my soul
Burning in my soul

All Your sons and Your daughters
Dreaming the dreams of their Father
Seeing the signs and the wonders
The kingdom of God, yeah

Whoa, hear the sound from heaven
Whoa, a mighty rushing wind
Whoa, we're calling for revival
God, let Your fire fall again
It's burning in my soul
Burning in my soul

I cannot contain it, this fire inside
I cannot contain it, so let it shine
I cannot contain it, this light of mine
It's burning in my soul...

Whoa, hear the sound from heaven
Whoa, a mighty rushing wind
Whoa, we're calling for revival
God, let Your fire fall again
It's burning in my soul
Oh, it's burning in my soul
Yeah, it's burning in my soul
Oh, start a fire in my soul
In my soul, in my soul, in my soul

There is power, power
Here in this hour, this hour
We're all together, together
Waiting here as one
It's burning in my soul
It's burning in my soul
