To see You in victory
Regardless of my brokenness,
For You are my one thing.
War is a good language;
For in every war, there's always a victory --
A victory in a Name that's above all other names.
The Name who's good at defending,
Who's good at perfecting,
In drawing closer those hearts that are calling for help.
Those who plead and trust only Him.
The strengthening of the Lord covers all ages,
It's a transformation from inside out
And it's through the breath of life.
We listen to His voice like lullabies in our ears.
We need not pretend that we are strong by ourselves,
To stop taking the first steps
But instead, allow Him to take us to His ways.
When John saw the revealed Jesus;
He no longer is the wounded One,
But He is seen as the resurrected One.
Maybe we've been trying out too many schemes
And our strategies always lead us to an end --
The dead-end of our lives.
But tonight, God wants to remind you
That your ending is the new beginning
And that Jesus already died for you and me.
His death became the beginning
Of exchanging meaning of what "victory" is all about.
A beginning that sprouts like a new leaf;
A beginning living in His testimony.
He says, "Come up here and see."
See it for yourself;
Because the Lord already prepared a banquet.
Jesus has the invitation to see Him,
To experience His salvation, His blessings
And so we can be filled with wonders and awe once again.
God is just waiting.
Hebrews 12:1-3 (NIV)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
