Living He Loved Me

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”1 Peter 1:3

I never have the right words to express my awe of the death and resurrection of Jesus. I often look to the hymns or lyrics to what most call “praise music.” Casting Crowns, a Christian band, did a song titled “Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me). Below are the lyrics which tell the story of Jesus sweetly and powerfully.   Maybe use these lyrics to praise and thank God for Jesus. Below is also the link to the video.

 

One day, when Heaven was filled with his praises

One day, when sin was as black as could be

Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin

Dwelt among men, my example is he

The Word became flesh

And the light shined among us

His glory revealed

Living, he loved me

Dying, he saved me

And buried, he carried

My sins far away

Rising, he justified

Freely forever

One day, he’s coming

Oh, glorious day

Oh, glorious day

One day, they led him up Calvary’s mountain

One day, they nailed him to die on a tree

Suffering anguish, despised and rejected

Bearing our sins, my redeemer is he

The hands that healed nations

Stretched out on a tree

And took the nails for me

One day, the grave could conceal him no longer

One day, the stone rolled away from the door

Then he arose, over death he had conquered

Now he’s ascended, my Lord evermore

Death could not hold him

The grave could not keep him

From rising again (rising again)

Living, he loved me

Dying, he saved me

And buried, he carried

My sins far away

Rising, he justified

Freely forever

One day, he’s coming

Oh, glorious day

Oh, glorious day

Glorious day

One day, the trumpet will sound for his coming (we long for your coming)

One day, the skies with his glories will shine (glories will shine)

Wonderful day, my beloved one bringing

(My Savior) my Savior Jesus is mine

Living, he loved me

Dying, he saved me

Buried, he carried

My sins far away

Rising, he justified

Freely forever

One day, he’s coming

Oh, glorious day

Oh, glorious day

Glorious day

Oh, glorious day

IN JESUS’ NAME-AMEN!
