167 Christ Is Our God

Verse 1

God’s words carry life power, show us the way to walk,

help us to understand what the truth is.

We’re drawn in by His words, the way that He speaks to us,

interested in the feelings of this unremarkable person.

Working for us, God spits up blood and loses sleep,

weeping and sighing, groaning in sickness for us,

humiliated for our salvation.

Our numbness and rebellion draw tears from His heart.


Pre-chorus

The ordinary can’t have this way of being,

nor can it be reached by corrupt man.

God shows love, tolerance and patience

which no created being can possess.


Chorus

This ordinary, insignificant One rejected by us,

is He not the Lord Jesus ever in our thoughts,

whom we long for night and day?

It is He! Our God! The truth, the way and the life!


Verse 2

No one apart from Him can know our every thought,

can have such a grasp of our nature and substance,

can judge the rebellion, corruption of mankind,

work and speak among us on behalf of God in heaven.

No one but Him has the authority,

the wisdom, and the dignity of God.

God’s disposition, what God has and is,

are issued forth from Him.


Chorus

This ordinary, insignificant One rejected by us,

is He not the Lord Jesus ever in our thoughts,

whom we long for night and day?

It is He! Our God! The truth, the way and the life!


Bridge

None but Him can bring us light and show the way,

reveal the mysteries that God has not shown till today.

No one apart from Him can save us from bondage,

our corrupt disposition from Satan.


Verse 3

He represents God, utters the voice of God’s heart,

His exhortations and judgment of mankind.

He has brought a new age, a new heaven and earth.

He brings new work and hope for us,

ending lives we led in obscurity,

letting us behold the path of salvation.

He has conquered our being and gained our hearts.

Now our minds become conscious and our spirits revived.


Chorus

This ordinary, insignificant One rejected by us,

is He not the Lord Jesus ever in our thoughts,

whom we long for night and day?

It is He! Our God! The truth, the way and the life!
