Then Sings My Soul Saturday: Shine

I hope you enjoy this song taken from Philippians 2, one of my favorite chapters of the New Testament.

Matt Redman

Lord we have seen the rising sun, awakening the early dawn,
And we're rising up to give you praise.
Lord we have seen the stars and moon, see how they shine,
They shine for you,
And You're calling us to do the same.
So we rise up with a song, and we rise up with a cry
And we're giving you our lives.

We will shine like stars in the universe,
Holding out Your truth in the darkest place.
We'll be living for Your glory,
Jesus we'll be living for Your glory.
We will burn so bright with Your praise O God,
And declare Your light to this broken world.
We'll be living for Your glory,
Jesus we'll be living for Your glory.

Like the sun so radiantly
Sending light for all to see,
Let your holy church arise
Exploding into life,
Like a supernova's light,
Set your holy church on fire;
We will shine.

Join us at Amy's for more songs.

I've not heard this song before. I really need to get some Matt Redman CDs because I love the songs I've heard. And yes, Philippians 2 is a great chapter. Well, actually the whole book. :-)
