A Song in My Heart

When I saw the that BEHOLD was the prompt for this week’s Five Minute Friday I thought I would use the following passage:

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” – Luke 2:8-12 NKJV

But the words wouldn’t come.

So instead I decided to share the lyrics and a video to:

Behold (Then Sings My Soul)

Behold the Father’s heart
The mystery He lavishes on us
As deep cries out to deep
Oh, how desperately He wants us

The things of earth stand next to Him
Like a candle to the sun
Unfailing Father
What compares to His great love

Behold His holy Son
The Lion and the Lamb given to us
The Word became a man
That my soul should know its Saviour

Forsaken for the sake of all mankind
Salvation is in His blood
Jesus Messiah
The righteous died for love

It wasn’t over
For He is the risen one

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is (come on)

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is
Then sings my soul

Behold I have a friend
The Spirit breathing holy fire within
My ever present help
Speaking truth when I can’t find it

Light up this broken heart
And light my way
Until my time on earth is done
Oh, Holy Spirit
Breathe in me like Kingdom come

Oh, Holy Spirit
Let Your work in me be done

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is
Then sings my soul

My God
He who was and is to come
Prepare the way
Until the work on earth is done (come on)
Watch as the clouds He rides swing low
Lift up the sound
As He makes our praise His throne
Behold the Lord our God will lead us home
