7in7-Day2

I didn't get to Song#2 until 10:30pm last night #uhoh. Yup, I fell asleep. Ha! Not once, but 3 times. This brotha was tired. I finally called it a night at 2am. Thankfully I woke up with some fresh ideas and here is the finished product. 

"Faithful Love"

This song was inspired by these verses from Philippians:

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

(Philippians 2:5-11 ESV)

 

"Faithful Love"

emptied Servant 
bearing the likeness of men 
selfless Savior
hanging nailed to a cross

faithful love

matchless beauty 
freely you've given Your life 
submissive Victor
perfectly purchased Your own

awake our souls with faithful love
immerse our hearts in whelming flood 
fill these lungs with boundless praise 
in awe of You Lord we humbly proclaim 
Faithful love Faithful love

endless wonder
dying You've taken our place 
death defeated
risen You've concurred the grave

Soon we'll see You
knees will bow at Your name 
Hallelujah 
Jesus Christ is Lord 

awake our souls with faithful love
immerse our hearts in whelming flood 
fill these lungs with boundless praise 
in awe of You Lord we humbly proclaim 

Faithful love (You've shown) Faithful love 
Faithful God (You are) Faithful God 

 

Nothin' but love,

Jimmy
