The Song of 2005!!!

I am thrilled ... Kate Simmonds has just put the lyrics of THE hymn of the Brighton Leaders Conference on her website. To me it is the most glorious anthem of the Resurrection and Glorification of Jesus Christ, and follows through to the impartation of the Holy Spirit and the Comissioning of the Church - it is a masterful amazing song, undergirded with the apostolic teaching of Terry Virgo (her own testimony) and it just makes me shiver (holy goosebumps as Ern Baxter called them) remembering the anointing of the Spirit as the thousands sang it!! Here are the words:


In Him I have believed, on this my hope now rests
That Jesus Christ is risen from the dead!
The all-surpassing joy of knowing Christ my Lord
The former things, I count them all as loss
Called out of darkness into Your goodness
We are Your children, chosen in Christ!
Now in Your family, heirs of the promise
To Your purpose on the earth I give my life

A people born of God, united by Your call
One faith, one Lord, one Father of us all
Joined with bonds of love, and planted in Your house
We worship You with hearts and lives poured out
Let us go on in the power of Your Spirit
Taking Your gospel to all the world!
Declaring Your wisdom, our great commission,
That Jesus Christ has come to save the lost!

Whatever trials may come, in faith, Lord, help us stand
For righteousness and justice in our land
What fear can hold us now?
We run toward the prize
Our lives already crucified with Christ
Through every nation, Your kingdom advances
Who can extinguish this spreading flame?
Through tribulations, we’ll stand on Your promise:
‘I will build My Church and hell will not prevail!’

And on that final day, the citizens of heaven
Called out to be the new Jerusalem
In multitudes will bow before the throne of God:
One nation called from every tribe and tongue
Great celebration! The glorious union:
The Lion of Judah and the pure, spotless Bride!
All of creation waits for this moment
All your promises fulfilled in Jesus Christ!
