Let His Glory Be Seen

Verse: 1
Oh I saw a distant land, and its glory was so grand
I cried oh Lord how I long to be there
Then I heard His gentle voice, “come my child, it is your choice”
Oh such hope that I’d never heard before

Chorus:
Oh arise, let us run, for the morning light has come
And the darkness of the night flies away
He has risen, He has come, and our home He has won
Let His glory be seen on you today

Verse: 2
Then the way grew dark with care, my heart trembled in despair
I turned my eyes to my Lord with a prayer
Through the dimness of the dawn, deeper truth then I was drawn
Oh such hope, even brighter than before!

Chorus:
Oh arise, let us run, for the morning light has come
And the darkness of the night flies away
He has risen, He has come, and our home He has won
Let His glory be seen on you today

Verse: 3
There a lonely soul I saw, standing near but yet withdrawn
I bade him come to the land bright and fair
With hope’s glimmer in his eye, to the darkness said goodbye
Then we sang, a note higher than before!

Chorus:
Oh arise, let us run, for the morning light has come
And the darkness of the night flies away
He has risen, He has come, and our home He has won
Let His glory be seen on you today

2018 Theme Song

This Witness I Will Bear

The apostle’s song
Acts 1:8

Verse: 1

Have you heard the story told of the Man whose heart was sold
To save my dying soul? Oh, what love untold.

To the end He’s always sought me. To the end He’s always loved me.
To the end I long to follow for He bore my cross of sorrow.

I will stay here in the hollow of His care and I will go
Anywhere, to the end. This witness I will bear, to the end.

Verse: 2

In the grove I heard Him say, “Oh my Father please just stay.”
Through broken hearted pain He did pave the way.

To the end His heart is faithful. To the end His hand is able.
To the end I can now follow for He bore my cross of sorrow.

I will stay here in the hollow of His care and I will go
Anywhere, to the end. This witness I will bear, to the end.

Verse: 3

As they took Him off to die, there His friendship I denied.
Forgiveness in His eyes, He did not despise.

To the end His love constrains me. To the end He has restored me.
To the end I will still follow for He bore my cross of sorrow.

I will stay here in the hollow of His care and I will go
Anywhere, to the end. This witness I will bear, to the end.
