Raised from the grave

A broken heart and a contrite spirit

Is a beautiful and precious sacrifice

Where my eyes are opened to see

Your mercy flooding in

Where my soul is healed and made whole

Whole to be Yours and Yours alone

Whole to be holy

One with You just as You prayed

Where Your hearts desire is fulfilled

That we’d never be apart

Love never parts

Never lets go

Always hopes and draws me toward Your promises

To see them fulfilled

Your word coming alive in me my great reward

For there You are alive in me

Central to my being

Being gospel centred is having You in the centre

Knowing you as first in all things

And by faith coming to see 

The power of who You are transforming my weaknesses

Into who You see I am

I am Your son

I don’t just belong with You

It’s not just my rightful place

It’s who I am

I’m Yours 

Where every part of me is immersed in You

Baptised in the fire of Your love

Tested through the fiery trails of faith

Stripped of all things foul

Having all things that have no place with You

Blotted out

Removed

Washed away

Wiped clean by Your blood

Where there is no other place

Other than Your hiding place

That secret place with You

Where there is no shame

No guilt or remorse 

Where Your peace rolls over me

Wave after wave

Crystal clear

Transparent and pure

As a perfect cut diamond

Full of rainbow colours

Bursting out ready to blaze a trail of glory

That outshines the sun

Where eternity placed inside my heart

Is born on earth for multitudes to see

The brightness of Your dawn

To hear the glory of Your name

And be drawn by You to know perfect love

Where the dead weight of sin and the pollution of its air

Is blown away through the breath of Your saving grace

Where to live is Christ and to die is gain

To loose my life and to find my life

In You Lord Jesus my redeemer

That You have raised me from the grave
