In a couple weeks we will be singing a song by Christy Nockels called "Sing Along".
It's a fairly easy song, catchy too, with a simple message: God's mercy is so great that it reaches all over the world, even the secret places. He holds us all and we will sing together so that His glory will be clear and obvious to everyone.
Here are the lyrics:
From babies hidden in the shadows
to the cities shining bright
there are captives weeping far from sight
For every doorway there's a story
and some are holding back the cries
but there is One who hears us in the night
Great God, wrap Your arms around this world tonight
around the world tonight
And when You hear our cries, sing through the night
so we can join in Your song and sing along
Yeah, sing along
For the farthest corners of the earth, still His mercy reaches
even to the pain we cannot see
through the deepest darkness there's a promise that will keep us
there is One who came to set us free
So let Your song rise and fill up the earth
Let Your hope ring out, let Your heart be heard
How great would it be for this song to just be picked up in the next week so that we can truly sing along as a group of Christ followers rejoicing in the One who hears our silent cries and saves our broken hearts?
This weeks memory verse is Revelation 5:12
In a loud voice they sang: Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!
