I Then Shall Live


Here is one of the most powerful songs I've heard in a while. Hope it gives you a blessing. It made me shed tears.

Lyrics:

I then shall live
as one whose been forgiven
I'll walk with 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 whose 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 others
and may You feed the hungry world through me
Amen!!!!

Yes, this is one of the best Christian songs I have heard in years. The lyrics are so very powerful. When the Gaithers sang it, I also had tears in my eyes. The power of the Holy Spirit shines through loud and clear when this song is sung! AMEN!

I heard this song for the first time at an Ernie Haase and Signature Sound concert and shed many tears that night. I plan to share this song with my CPE class. (A class for training hospital chaplains)

This song is destined to become a true classic. It speaks so clearly to my situation and where I'm at that listening, can't help but bring tears to my eyes. If it indeed crosses your path, I pray that you will be touched by the Holy Spirit and encouraged along in your journey.

This is already a song they just put words to the melody
It's called "Be Still My Soul, The Lord is on thy side"

This is so not what the world is teaching right now!
Thanks for these inspiring words GVB!

This song with such powerful and soul searching lyrics, would heal a broken and cruel world. Each time I play the song, I scarcely can control the tears. My prayer is that I might start each new day with these lyrics on my lips. God help me!
