Eclipsed By Glory

We must never eclipse the glory of our God

Or show He doesn’t exist or He’s fake or a fraud

He’s true, He is kind, and He’s faithful to His Word

His message is the one that I hope you have heard

God came as a man to save all that are lost

He came with a message and ended on a cross

His message is this for all who wants to hear

His message is salvation and He says it very clear

He came, He died and was raise on the third day

To save us from our sin and heal us from our evil ways

He came to save, forgive and seal us with His spirit

This is the gospel message can you come and hear it

If you confess with your mouth, believe it in your hart

Jesus is Lord and He will give a new start

He was raised to life on the third day

To give us a new chance to walk in His ways

Christ loves us for this is what I know

This is a way of life not a game or a show

This is what one would call an inside job

The change in your hart can only be done by this God

He is alive this very day not a fake nor a fraud

He’s sovereign, He’s just He’s our one true God

Life is like show and tell

Since the beginning when man fell

We show the world how we beat those odds

How we walked away from all them gods

Our life is like how we walk

More than the way we sow our talk

The way we talk is how we live

With strength from our Savior

grace we give

Our walk is meant to please our God

With Truth from His Word we are awed

With perseverance we remain steadfast

With grace from our Savior we will last

In the end we will receive a crown

In a place where there will be no frowns

Heaven is a place where there will be no tears

We will not have to hide or stand in fear

We will be giving our Lord all our praise

On that day the church he will raise

The greatest gift God gives is free
All because Christ died on a tree

Christ paid the price once and for all
So you can live to answer Gods call

If you are thinking about God
But your hold up is that you’re flawed

Ask God to reveal Himself to you
That is exactly what He will do

He will show Himself in a way
That you’ll want to respond today

Your heart has a voice within
Asking you to let Him in

So if you heed His call
He will give you His all

We are Chosen, we are Called, we are One
We are heirs with God’s only Son

Christ paid the price for us all
In your heart will you answer God’s call

God wants you to live a life that is free
So forever with Him you will be

It was Christ who died upon the cross
He died to save all who are lost

Are you in bondage to some kind of sin
Then let Christ free you from within

Are you a slave to some kind of hurt
Is your heart open to convert

Are you in pain, tired or lost
Bring all your flaws to the cross

Christ is the only one that can set you free
So forever with Him you will be

Romans 10:9
If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord
Believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead
Then you will be saved

It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night
Wise men were guided by a star so bright
They were following what the prophets foretold
Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold
They were gifts for the new born king
The child of which the angels did sing
Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man
Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan
Sent from God this child sublime
Redemption came from this perfect paradigm
This child came with a message that He must tell
His message of redemption that saves us from hell
This message of redemption we all must hear
Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears
Open our hearts to receive God’s Word
The message of Christ is the message we heard
The Son of God is King at birth
His message is told throughout the earth
If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year
It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

There once was a man that walked this earth
He came from heaven through a virgin birth

He came to give a message that we all must hear
His voice isn’t loud but His message is clear

Repent and be saved, turn from your ways
Walk with Jesus for the rest of you days

Confess all your sins and forgiveness He will give
He will cleanse your heart and eternally you will live

As you invite Him in a change will be made
He will break your chains and you’ll no longer be slaves

His Spirit will come and live inside your heart
He will be your guide so turning from sin will be your start

As you walk with Him His message you will proclaim
You will extend His love so people will know His name

You are our Lord, You are our King
It’s praises to You that we want to sing
We bow in your presence, we kneel at Your cross
It’s Your message of grace that saves all whose lost
You are the light, You are the way
All who come to You Christ will be saved this very day
You are the well that never runs dry
All who drink of you now will never have to die
You are the banner that hung high on a hill
All who submit to You now will forever be filled
You are the bread that gives us new life
We are Your bride like a husbands new wife
You sent us Your Spirit to convict us of sin
Because of Your grace it’s our hearts that get cleansed
You are the Truth that offers us freedom
We change our old ways for we no longer need them
It is out with the old and in with the new
We give glory to God all because of You
