Knowing Christ in the Church Life (01-03-21)


Jesus, Shine On Us Now

Original song and lyrics by Phil Wickham (“Heaven Fall Down”)
Revised lyrics by Ian Konpinski

Open our eyes, Lord, let us see
All that You are, You’re all we need;
Open our ears, Lord, let us hear
What You would say, be loud and clear,
Please be near.

Lord, to You we cry,
Please come, shine Your Light.

Jesus, shine on us now;
Spirit, Spirit pour out
Lord, we need You;
Shine on us now.

Come, Jesus, come, bless us again,
Fill up our hearts, we welcome You in;
Shine, Jesus, shine, shine like the sun,
Break through our clouds, O Shining One;
O Light, please come.

We’re crying out in desperation,
Waiting now in expectation;
We’re crying out in desperation for You;
We need You, Lord, we need salvation,
We need Your word’s illumination,
So we’re crying out in desperation for You.

O Jesus Christ, Grow Thou In Me

Words: Johann Casper Lavater
Music: Ada Rose Gibbs

O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me,
And all things else recede;
My heart be daily nearer Thee,
From sin be daily freed.

Each day let Thy supporting might
My weakness still embrace;
My darkness vanish in Thy light,
Thy life my death efface.

In Thy bright beams which on me fall,
Fade every evil thought;
That I am nothing, Thou art all,
I would be daily taught.

More of Thy glory let me see,
Thou Holy, Wise, and True;
I would Thy living image be,
In joy and sorrow too.

Fill me with gladness from above,
Hold me by strength divine;
Lord, let the glow of Thy great love
Through all my being shine.

Make this poor self
Grow less and less,
Be Thou my life and aim;
Oh, make me daily through Thy grace
More meet to bear Thy name.

Ephesians 2:17-22
17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
