Modern hymn of the week. . .

“Devotion” by Marty Sampson

I’ve been running, trying to be one who sees
I’ve been working salvation out on my knees
There is nothing better than knowing
That we are redeemed
I’m believing, trusting in creative hands
I am praying for our world to bow to Your plan
And this one thought is unmistakable:
I take up my cross and follow You, Lord

When You stand the tall trees and mountains bow
When You speak the fiercest of oceans is still
And I see the sinners seek devotion,
The lost become chosen,
And I fall to my knees

I’m forgiven by a Saviour who did not deserve death
He was blameless, and I was lost in shamefulness
I’m delivered, but it doesn’t seem right
Unless I keep my eyes focused on the Saviour who gave His life
In the middle of a world that denies it believes,
It is breaking apart at the very seams
There is one thing to be alive for,
And it’s to take up my cross and follow You, Lord

When You stand the tall trees and mountains bow
When You speak the fiercest of oceans is still
And I see the sinners seek devotion,
The lost become chosen,
And I fall to my knees

I will take up my cross and follow, Lord, where You lead me
I will take up my cross and follow wherever You go

When You stand the tall trees and mountains bow
When You speak the fiercest of oceans is still
And I see the sinners seek devotion,
The lost become chosen,
And I fall to my knees
