O' Church Arise


 Last Sunday we had a glorious day of fellowship and sang this at church. I love the lyrics...

O' Church Arise

O Church Arise and put your armour on
Hear the call of Christ our Captain
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given
With shield of faith and belt of truth
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies
An army bold whose battle-cry is Love
Reaching out to those in darkness.

Our call to war to love the captive soul
But to rage against the captor
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valour
When faced with trials on every side
We know the outcome is secure
And Christ will have the prize for which He died
An inheritance of nations.

Come see the cross where love and mercy meet
As the Son of God is stricken
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet
For the Conqueror has risen
And as the stone is rolled away
And Christ emerges from the grave
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see Him.

So Spirit come put strength in every stride
Give grace for every hurdle
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful
As saints of old still line the way
Retelling triumphs of His grace
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory.


I especially like what you see emboldened, the lyrics just touched my heart.

Hope you have a peaceful day of worship and rest!



I thought I would add this so you could actually hear how the song sounds, it is timely too as fall is around the corner! If you do listen to it--don't forget to turn off the playlist in the sidebar.

    I really needed to SEE those lyrics written out today to remember that HE IS VICTOR over every situation, no matter how much the enemy taunts.
