Singing for Joy

Sing for joy, all you who rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

We have been ransomed from slavery, the price has been paid for our freedom.

And now we live a life birthed and sustained by the Spirit of God, a life that will not fade and wither away but is built on the eternal word of God.

We do not walk through our years on earth alone. He comes to those who belong to Him and makes His home with them. He will never leave us. Unfailing love surrounds us.

Wherever our journey takes us, His hand guides us and His strength supports us. He leads us to green pastures and still waters, and holds us securely even through the valley of the shadow of death.

His power works in us, a power so great that it raises from the dead. Those who trust in Him are like trees by the water; they do not fear the heat or long drought, their leaves are always green, and they never stop producing fruit.

The fear of the Lord is a life-giving fountain.

O God, you are my God;
   I earnestly search for you.
Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
   How I praise You !
Because You are my helper,
  I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
