Gift #520: Celebrating Advent

We’ve been learning a new song in church for the last two Sundays and, as it’s been happily singing in my head all afternoon, I though I might share it with you.  I’m sure you can find it on youtube if you’d like to hear the melody, but here are the words.  It’s called “Shout for Joy” by Lincoln Brewster and Paul Baloche.

Pour out your fervent praise
There’s a song to raise
Like a banner high
Lift up your grateful heart
To the Morning Star
He’s alive and here with us

Shout for joy
For the Son of God
Is the Saving One
He’s the Saving One

Shout for joy
See what love has done
He has come for us
He’s the Saving One

We stood on sinking sand
He reached out His hand
Pulled us to His side
We turned our hearts away
He was strong to save
Now our Savior reigns in us

Shout for joy
For the Son of God
Is the Saving One
He’s the Saving One

Shout for joy
See what love has done
He has come for us
He’s the Saving One

There is no other God like You
We’ll sing the praises that You’re due
Jesus, You have saved us

There is no other God who reigns
You are the name above all names
Jesus, You have saved us

Shout for joy
For the Son of God
Is the Saving One
He’s the Saving One

Shout for joy
See what love has done
He has come for us
He’s the Saving One

Love has come for us – that’s the meaning of Advent.  We are not alone.  God is with us.

Blessings to you,

Sarah
