God With Us

Last night, I went with a group of church family to a MercyMe concert. There is something about attending a concert by Christian performers that blesses my heart.

This concert was in the state of Vermont, statistically the 'least Christian' state in the U.S., quite spiritually dead and the people are difficult to reach. Nevertheless, there we were, 1,600 believers standing in an auditorium in the heart of Vermont
, singing and worshiping together, feeling the presence of the Lord so strongly and surely.



Who are we
That You would be mindful of us
What do You see
That's worth looking our way

We are free
In ways that we never should be
Sweet release
From the grip of these chains

Like hinges straining from the weight
My heart no longer can keep from singing

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified
Emmanuel
God with us

My heart sings a brand new song
The debt is paid these chains are gone
Emmanuel
God with us

Lord, You know
Our hearts don't deserve Your glory
Still You show
A love we cannot afford

Such a tiny offering compared to Calvary
Nevertheless we lay it at Your feet

-MercyMe
