Sunday Morning Songs

I had a couple of extra minutes before leaving for church this morning and thought I would share a couple of songs that have been echoing in my head for the last several weeks.  I love how God can use music to speak to our hearts.

I am not sure when I heard the song "Worn" by Tenth Avenue North, but I know that my heart echoes its cry often.  I know that "a song can rise from the ashes of a broken life" but sometimes it feels like we are worn and we are just asking God to "let us see redemption win."



This is a song I heard back in January when I was sick with the flu and was watching the sessions from the Passion conference.  The new Passion CD came out recently and I started listening to it on Spotify this weekend and can't seem to take it off of repeat.  Am I the only one that does that?

This is a video from the Passion conference:


Finally, a couple of weeks ago, our pastor preached on the blood of Jesus and he quoted the lyrics to Nothing But the Blood of Jesus and as much as I love modern worship music, there are times when I long for the old hymns that teach such theology and I miss those profound truths.


What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Refrain

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Refrain

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Refrain

Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Refrain

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Refrain


I am so thankful for the blood of Jesus--He is our hope, our peace, our confidence. 
Happy Sunday!

I also love the song, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus! Without His Blood, we would be nothing, and I am so Thankful for His Love!
Happy Easter to you and your Family!
