Forever

Last Sunday, we had the privilege of worshipping with the good folks from Restoration Church here in St. Joseph. We loved every moment.

Their worship band was awesome, even though I didn’t recognize most of the songs they played. One song in particular stuck out: “Forever”.

Check out these lyrics, then watch and listen to the video below, where Kari Jobe sings this amazing declaration of hope.

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon him

One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated

Forever, He is glorified
Forever, He is lifted high
Forever, He is risen
He is alive
He is alive!

Music has a way of moving people in powerful ways, but this one?

Wow.
