ADORNED IN LACE (Song Lyrics)

white fern

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

Once we were burdened by darkness
Clothed only in self-righteousness
We came to You, and You saved us
Exchanged our rags for robes anew

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

You took our hopeless, broken heart
And filled it to overflowing
Your love broke through, captivated
Abundant, cleansing, softened too

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

At first, the flow, it did trickle
Too much, too soon, too much would be
Father, You know us inside out
Patient for our salvation day

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

Adorned in lace, so beautiful
Awaiting our Master’s sweet voice
Clothed in Your royal righteousness
Hope in eternity’s wedding

Eventide

sunset sunrise beach

No matter how dark the moment grows
How many walk away
No matter if all you can see is you
Don’t ever say
It’s no use
I can’t go on
Just know
Draw from depths once unknown
Buried far within
And know that there is One
Who loves you

Then when night-time
The night-time of your life
Draws near
Physically, mentally, spiritually
You’ll be able to say
This is me
I’m the one
This is my story
I survived
And

Deep beneath the still hush of eventide
A head rests on the Saviour’s beating heart
Going forth in the realm of distant dreams
And to Him who keeps each breath apart

It’s my head
My Saviour’s heart

There’s peace at eventide
And the gentle blush of Christ’s bride
Will be revealed
