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…Just Want You

 

“Take the lead of every step I make
Even if You tell my feet to wait
‘Cause where You are is where I wanna be
The depth of me is calling for the deep

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
Your heart, Your ways
Show me Your face
Your song and Your voice
Break through the noise
I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You, God

Whisper to me secrets of Your heart
‘Cause I want to discover all You are
I’m leaning into Heaven for a glimpse
And I will partner with Your presence here again

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
Your heart, Your ways
Show me Your face
Your song and Your voice
Break through the noise
I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You, God

All that I see, be my everything
All that I dream, lay it at Your feet
All that I am, falling on my knees
I surrender, I surrender
All that I see, be my everything
All that I dream, lay it at Your feet
All that I am, falling on my knees
I surrender, I surrender

I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You
No, I don’t want it if You’re not in it
I just want You

Just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You
Just want You, just want You”
