October Song of the Month

Come to church this Sunday.  The worship will be epic.  Literally.

According to Merriam Webster, an "epic" is" a long narrative poem in elevated style recounting the deeds of a legendary or historical hero."  That is exactly what we are involved in when we gather to sing Christ's praises together, except it's even more "epic" than that.  We're not just telling the story of a historical hero, we're telling the story of THE Hero of all of history.  And while an epic poem may take a long time to tell a story, the church has been telling the story of our Hero for 2,000 years, and we'll continue to tell that story for all of eternity.

That's what our October Song of the Month is about.  You can listen to it and read some comments from the writer here, and here are the words:

Oh God of power, living Word
The One who made the stars
Who with Your glory filled the earth
From dust made beating hearts
You loved us when we fell away
Poured mercy on our souls
And promised grace would come to save
To loose death’s iron hold

You are our song from age to age
Our voices unite to recount Your praise
Again and again

Oh God of promises fulfilled
The God who took on flesh
Who did all that the Father willed
Was humbled unto death
You bore our cross of sin and shame
Endured our agony
With gladness we now bear Your name
And worship at Your feet

You are our song from age to age
Our voices unite to recount Your praise
Again and again
You are our song from age to age
We will proclaim Your pow’r to save
Again and again

Oh God, who surely guides our steps
Through tempests and through trials
Our Shepherd King, Your way is best
Though tears now veil our eyes
Your steadfast love, our perfect hope
Our eyes are fixed on grace
We have no doubt You’ll lead us home
To finally see Your face

Oh God of all of history
Enthroned in realms of light
What eyes of faith have strained to see
Will one day fill our sight
With all the saints we’ll lay our crowns
Before the Savior’s feet
And sing as all the heav’ns resound
For all eternity
