Mighty Cross (Live) – Elevation Worship

 

 

Sometimes I wonder aloud why Elevation Church write such gospel centered songs and still preach “me-centered” sermons. I guess we don’t get it 100% all the time. 

In the meantime we receive and enjoy anything from them that points us to Jesus and His work on the cross for us – the gospel.

Song title – Mighty Cross (Live) – Elevation Worship

[Verse 1]
On the day, that death surrendered
To the mighty cross of Jesus Christ
The earth would shake, beneath the weight
Of darkened skies

[Verse 2]
On His brow, a crown of sorrow
For a King whose weakness was our strength
No word He spoke, His love was shown
For all to see

[Chorus]
O the cross of Jesus Christ
Is the reason I’m alive
For His blood, has set me free
It will never lose, its power for me!

[Verse 3]
Now the dawn, of resurrection
Floods the night, as hope prevails to shine
Salvation wakes, our chains to break
And we arise!

[Chorus]
O the cross of Jesus Christ
Is the reason I’m alive
For His blood, has set me free
It will never lose, its power for me!..
[Bridge]
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Christ my victory!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
It is won for me
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Christ my victory!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
It is won for me

[Interlude]

[Verse 4]
On the day, He comes in glory
To reveal the fullness of His reign
All hearts will bow, before the sound
Of Jesus name!..

[Chorus]
O the cross of Jesus Christ
Is the reason I’m alive
For His blood, has set me free
It will never lose, its power for me
O the cross of Jesus Christ
Is the reason I’m alive
For His blood, has set me free
It will never lose, its power for me…
[Outro]
It will never lose, its power for me
It will never lose, its power for me…

Grace and the beauty of sleep

I have always admired (even envied) how Jenny sleeps. She sleeps so well. Jenny can sleep for 12 hours straight with one or no breaks at all. She also sleeps very quietly. She makes no sounds at all. I could count with my fingers the few times I’ve heard her snore. You couldn’t even describe that as a snore. More like a wimp of a snore – like a deflated snore. Like gosh, I now have to snore. Jenny also enjoys going to bed at night. You can see her eyes light up when its time to sleep. I usually say to her that she gets ready to go to her throne where she is queen – where she reigns supreme.
