I am crazy excited about a new song we are going to sing this week.
The song is called “Cornerstone” and it is actually a repurposing, if you will, of an old hymn and is featured on the newest Hillsong Live album.
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name
Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior’s blood
Through the storm He is Lord
Lord of all
When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh, may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless, stand before the throne
Oh, how I wish so badly that I could just sing those words to you right now. The very first line is so powerful, “my hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness”. But as poignant as that is I think my favorite is actually verse 3 where it says, “when He shall come with trumpet sound, oh, may I then in Him be found”. How I so desperately want to be found in Christ. When those trumpets call out I hope I’m standing with hands raised and praise flowing from my lips.
Sometimes worship gets so deep and so personal and so overwhelming that it hurts, physically even. But it is the most beautiful feeling accompanied by the most AWEsome knowledge of eternal salvation.
Here is a link to the video of is song:
Let us not be silent. Let us praise our God.
Psalm 30:12 that my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Let us commit is verse to memory this week.
In Him I am found,
