I Then Shall Live

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I was blessed by our offertory song this morning in church and wanted to share it. These are alternate lyrics to a melody you may know as "Be Still My Soul" . A You-Tube link follows.

I Then Shall Live by Gloria Gaither

I then shall live as one who's been forgiven.
I'll walk with joy to know my debts are paid.
I know my name is clear before my Father;
I am His child and I am not afraid.
So, greatly pardoned, I'll forgive my brother;
The law of love I gladly will obey.

I then shall live as one who's learned compassion.
I've been so loved, that I'll risk loving too.
I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges;
I'll dare to see another's point of view.
And when relationships demand commitment,
Then I'll be there to care and follow through.

Your Kingdom come around and through and in me;
Your power and glory, let them shine through me.
Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,
And may Your living Kingdom come in me.
The Bread of Life, O may I share with honor,
And may You feed a hungry world through me.

    I love the song, Be Still My Soul. I have never seen these lyrics. They are beautiful. I am going to copy them from here somehow and use them with the children here. Thanks!

    I LOVE this!! And above all we need to shower that love and compassion on ourselves - sometimes we forget that!!
