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

ABBA FATHER, ABBA FATHER

cross jesus wood

Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can breathe sweet life into me
Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can fill my heart with pure love

Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can clothe me with righteousness
Abba Father, Abba Father
Only You can bring me into the light

You found me when I thought I was hidden
You found me in my darkest hour, so lost
You found me and wrapped Your arms around me
And told me You would never let me go

Found me and showed me the way to Your heart
Found me and led me to Your precious Son
Found me and filled me with eternal love
And now all within cries Abba Father, You won

A Light, It Shineth

LightBelongeth us to Him, the King?
Then down on bended knee we bow
Surrendering our total, very being
All we have is forever, now.

Sing Oh! glorious saints of His
Bring praises, praises; cry aloud
Shelter in His righteousness only
Watch for He cometh in a cloud.

Dare we cast our glances downwards?
Following where our feet have been
Forever heaven-wards shall we be watchful
Eye shall then see what no eye hath seen.

Delivereth us, our beautiful Saviour
Into pastures, green with love
Oh! Your mighty saving presence
Sent from our dear Father above.
