Songs That Move Us: Faith

Songs That Move Us: Faith

For the last few weeks, the Spot of Grace has been about songs that have moved me. Now I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to email me and share your story about the songs that have impacted you. My email address is: glyn.knight@gracemorton.org.

The song I would like to share with you this week is by Sovereign Grace. It’s called Show us Christ. If you’ve attended Grace over the last few months, you’ve heard this song several times. We have had various people sing it as a special song for our offertory. We have also sung it as part of our congregational worship music. The reason this song has moved me so much is its strong focus on Scripture, which is a common theme of Sovereign Grace songs. The Bible speaks of Christ from cover to cover. Jesus is the focal point of the Gospel. Jesus is the name we praise. This song moves me each time I hear it, as it prompts me to remember these truths.

Think about these words:

 

Show us Christ

 

Prepare our hearts, O God

Help us to receive

Break the hard and stony ground

Help our unbelief

Plant Your Word down deep in us

Cause it to bear fruit

Open up our ears to hear

Lead us in Your truth

(over)

 

Show us Christ

Show us Christ

O God, reveal Your glory

Through the preaching of Your Word

Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

 

Your Word is living light

Upon our darkened eyes

Guards us through temptations

Makes the simple wise

Your Word is food for famished ones

Freedom for the slave

Riches for the needy soul

Come speak to us today

 

Where else can we go, Lord

Where else can we go

You have the words of eternal life

 

Show us Christ

Show us Christ

O God, reveal Your glory

Through the preaching of Your Word

Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord

I’ve been reading a book by Chuck Swindoll entitled Start Where You Are. In this encouraging book he shares this statement: “Yesterday's pain prompts tomorrow's praise.” As we remember how God has shown us Christ through His word, praise should be our first response.

Have a great week!
