Sanctus   11 comments

 

I ran across this on a couple of blogs I visited and just love this idea that Amy over at Signs, Miracles, and Wonders has come up with. Here’s what she says…

“I think you are going to love this! The instructions are easy. Just write a post on your blog about a song. It can be a song that has spoken to your heart during a difficult time… a song that brings back a special memory… a song that makes you want to sing along to the top of your lungs… a song that makes you glad… a song that makes you want to dance… a song that has inspired you… a song that makes you feel like the words were written just for you… a song that makes your soul sing.

You can include the lyrics or maybe include the You Tube video. After you write the post, come back here and link your post to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Then you can come back and read about all the other songs and stories that are posted. I’m sure many of you love to worship through music and feel like God speaks to you through the words of songs just like I do. I can’t wait to hear all of your stories about it :)”

Now isn’t that a great idea! Here’s my song for this week…

Sanctus (Holy)

In earth and heaven there is none like you (Sanctus, Sanctus).
None worthy to ascend Your throne and rule (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Righteous and mighty King, saints and angels join to sing. (Sanctus, Sanctus)
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

Savior, You’re the perfect, spotless lamb (Sanctus, Sanctus).
My every breath is given by Your hand (Sanctus, Sanctus).
You reign with power on high – we fall before you and we cry (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

With reverence and with fear with trembling lips – Lord we draw near singing
Holy, Holy, King of awesome majesty, King of highest glory, glory, Sanctus glory.

I just love this song.  It is so appropriate for this Easter weekend.  I couldn’t find a video on it but you can hear a sample here

Blessings to all this Easter Weekend!

You Are My King – Amazing Love 

Words and Music by Billy James Foote 

I’m forgiven because You were forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
I’m alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true
It’s my joy to honor You
In all I do, To honor You

You are my King
You are my King
Jesus, You are my King
You are my King

Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true
It’s my joy to honor You

In all I do, To honor You,
In all I do, Let me honor You.

There is a Redeemer   2 comments

There is a Redeemer,
Jesus, God’s own son,
Precious lamb of God, Messiah,
Holy one,

Jesus my Redeemer,
Name above all names,
Precious lamb of God, Messiah,
Oh, for sinners slain.

Thank you oh my Father,
For giving us your Son,
And leaving your Spirit,
til the work on earth is done.

When I stand in glory,
I will see His face,
And there Ill serve my King forever,
In that holy place.

Thank you oh my Father,
For giving us your Son,
And leaving your Spirit,
til the work on earth is done.

There is a redeemer,
Jesus, God’s own Son,
Precious lamb of God, Messiah,
Holy one,

Thank you oh my Father,
For giving us your Son,
And leaving your Spirit,
til the work on earth is done.

And leaving your Spirit,
till the work on earth is done.

Russian Easter Greeting   4 comments

 

 Христос Воскрес! Воистину Воскрес! (Christos Voskres! Voistinu Voskres!)

Христос Воскрес! Воистину Воскрес! (Christos Voskres! Voistinu Voskres!)

Христос Воскрес! Воистину Воскрес! (Christos Voskres! Voistinu Voskres!)

Translation:

 Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!

 Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!

 Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!

 

This is the greeting I grew up with at our Russian Baptist Church.  I always wanted to be the one to say the Христос Воскрес! part because the Воистину Воскрес! part was so hard for me to say!

Good Friday – The Wonderful Cross   4 comments

 WHEN I SURVEY the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Oh, the wonderful cross,
Oh, the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find
That I may truly live.
Oh, the wonderful cross,
Oh, the wonderful cross,
All who gather here by grace
Draw near and bless Your name.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Words: Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
Music: Lowell Mason (1792-1872)
Refrain lyrics: Chris Tomlin & J D Walt
Arr. Chris Tomlin & Jesse Reeves
