In Him We Live (DeFord)


In Him We Live (DeFord)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

In him we live, In him who made the world,

Who caused the seas to swirl and bid the skies unfurl.

The earth beneath us formed at his command,

By him made beautiful and given unto man.

 

In him we live, preserved from day to day,

Led in our wilderness along the surest way.

And when we fall ‘tis he who bids us rise,

Dispels our darkness and enlightens our eyes.

 

In him we live, and he prepares a place

Where all who will may gain the riches of his grace.

By him we come to God our Father, heirs to everlasting life.

He is our Way. He is our Light, In Him we live.

 

In Him we live, What debt of love and faith.

We ove to Christ our King, our ransom from the grace

for by his suffering, by his mortal death, each mortal soul shall rise and draw immortal breath!

Then shall we live, made glorious in him;

Our sorrow turned to joy

Victorious in him,

 

In him perfected, sanctified in Christ,

By his unmeasured mercy, never more to die.

In Him we live, and he prepares a place

Where all who will may gain the riches of his grace.

By him we come to God our Father, heirs to everlasting life

He is our Way. He is our Light, In Him we Live.
