Awake My Soul

The image of God invisible, the first born of all life
Before and within, He holds it all in
One name, one faith, one Christ

No one is good enough, to save himself
Awake my soul tonight, to boast nothing else

I trust no other source or name, nowhere else can I hide
This grace gives me fear, and this grace draws me near
And all that it asks it provides

No seam in this garment, all my rags to hide
No less than your love, for Jesus is mine

When I stand on the edges of Jordan
With the saints and the angels beside
When my body is healed, and the glory revealed
Still I can boast only Christ

To boast nothing else
I watched the sun rise over the Atlantic this morning, singing halting praises with my Boston family. God, thank you for filling that parking lot with worshippers. Thank you for giving us that massive ball of fire that warms us and rises each and every day. As sure as the sun rises, so faithful is Your love for us. Thank you for faithfully providing your Son who made the way for us through suffering and death...then resurrection. We celebrate in pure joy today for You are no longer in the grave--it is FINISHED!
