Worship Wednesday…Amaryllis

“Talk about a winter
The world had never known,
Talk about a silence
That hardened up the soil;
No more life left in Eden,
But You knew the time would come…
‘Cause You were growing up a family
That You would call Your own,
And through a fragile people
The Light of Life would come,
And when it seemed like we’d never see Spring,
Heaven gave a King!

Like an Amaryllis, blooming at Christmas,
When everything was cold and dark
Your love broke through and You shined
With the brilliance of summer,
Right in the middle of winter!
You came surprising the night,
Like a Christmas Amaryllis…

Here I am waiting
In a winter of my own
If it’s gonna be this cold here
Why couldn’t it just snow?
At least I could say through the pain
That it’s somehow beautiful…
And everybody knows that the time to bloom is spring,
But You’re asking me to break through the hardness of this freeze
And You say that You’re with me
And I can make it through anything….

Like an Amaryllis, blooming at Christmas,
When everything is cold and dark
Your love breaks through and I shine
With the brilliance of summer,
Right in the middle of winter!
Somehow surprising the night
Like a Christmas Amaryllis…

There are the rare and beautiful treasures
That grow when it’s coldest
When nobody’s watching…
Sending a message to a sleeping world
That You are here with us now
And You are making all things new again…

Like an Amaryllis, blooming at Christmas,
When everything is cold and dark
Your love breaks through and You shine!
With the brilliance of summer,
Right in the middle of winter!
Ever surprising the night,
Like a Christmas Amaryllis
You’re still surprising the night
Like a Christmas Amaryllis…”

Worship Wednesday…Breathe

 

“There’s a river flowing from the mountain
It shows our God is true
There’s a song rising from the valley
It’s our response to You

‘Cause You are God
The God of all creation
The Earth groans and longs to be with You
Where we are, our hearts are raised to Heaven
We breathe to worship You
Yeah

We’re standing on, our faces shine with wonder
Made pure by perfect blood
What better way to give You all the honor
Than to bow before the One

‘Cause You are God
The God of all creation
The Earth groans and longs to be with You
Where we are, our hearts are raised to Heaven
We breathe to worship You (You are God)
You are God
The God of all creation
The Earth groans and longs to be with You
Where we are, our hearts are raised to Heaven
We breathe to worship You

Yeah

In the stillness, I can hear You whisper
Calling deep and deeper still
The same voice that moved upon the waters
Says “Come drink and have your fill”
In the stillness, I can hear You whisper
Calling deep and deeper still
The same voice that moved upon the waters
Says “Come drink and have your fill”
Says “Come drink and have your fill”

For You are God
The God of all creation (the Earth!)
The Earth groans and longs to be with You
Where we are, our hearts are raised to Heaven (oh)
We breathe to worship You (You are God)
‘Cause You are God
The God of all creation
Your people groan and long to be with You
Where we are, our hearts are raised to Heaven
We breathe to worship You

Yeah!
We breathe to worship You, hey!”
