There is a sacrifice made out of love

A hope that comes only from above

Let this joyous knowledge fill our lives

Drawing us ever closer to the one true light

God sent Christ Jesus His only Son

Offered that our hearts might be won

This ransom for sin paid on Calvary

Redeeming His bride for all eternity

We are called to share this very Good News

His awesome mercy and grace to our rescue

Overcoming the bleak darkness inside us

Replacing it with His holy righteousness

This is the hope I have for me and you

Saved to serve Him by a love so true

Let this be our goal and life’s story

United ever to the praise of His glory!

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”

Ephesians 4:11-16 ESV
