Days Of Elijah

#1537904 by Robin Mark

1996 Daybreak Music, Ltd. and Song Solutions Daybreak

Verse 1

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the Word of the Lord
And these are the days
Of Your servant Moses
Righteousness being restored
And though these are days
Of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice
In the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord


Chorus 1

Behold He comes
Riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun
At the trumpet call
So lift your voice
It's the year of Jubilee
And out of Zion's hill
Salvation comes


Verse 2

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days
Of Your servant David
Rebuilding a temple of praise
And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are as white in the world
And we are the labourers
In Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the Lord


Misc 1

(Bridge)
There is no god like Jehovah
There is no god like Jehovah
There is no god like Jehovah
There is no god like Jehovah (hey)

For who can stop the Lord Almighty

#7037787 by Dean Ussher, Marty Sampson, and Benjamin Hastings

2015 © Hillsong Music Publishing (Admin. by EMI Christian Music Publishing)

Verse 1

I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me
I see His wounds His hands His feet
My Saviour on that cursed tree


Verse 2

His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone


Chorus 1

O praise the Name of the Lord our God
O praise His Name forevermore
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord oh Lord our God


Verse 3

Then on the third at break of dawn
The Son of heaven rose again
O trampled death where is your sting
The angels roar for Christ the King


Verse 4

He shall return in robes of white
The blazing sun shall pierce the night
And I will rise among the saints
My gaze transfixed on Jesus' face

Living Hope


Verse 1
How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished the end is written
Jesus Christ my living hope


Verse 2
Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior I’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ my living hope


Chorus
Hallelujah praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ my living hope


Verse 3
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
(REPEAT)
Jesus Yours is the victory whoa


Ending
Jesus Christ my living hope
Oh God You are my living hope

The Brethren in Christ denomination upholds the following core values. (For a detailed look at Brethren in Christ faith and doctrine, visit www.bic-church.org.)

Our Mission

To build and nurture relationships with God and others, worship God in everyday life, and serve the community in the name of Jesus.

 

Our Vision

The New Guilford BIC Church embraces the verse, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13) as encouragement and reason for trusting Jesus Christ with our today and tomorrow.  We live for today asking God to make a difference right now, right here.  We look forward to tomorrow with the understanding that God wants to do more… take us deeper in a relationship with Him and others, make His will and ways more evident in our lives, and use us in a greater way to impact our neighbors, friends, and even strangers.
