Living He Loved Me...

Do you ever have one of those songs that just gets stuck in your head and it seems to play over and over again?  This has been one of those lately.  I've heard the Casting Crowns version on the radio a lot, and I believe we've sang it in church.  I just absolutely love the lyrics, especially leading up to Easter and thinking about the sacrifice that was made for me.

The Village Church's worship leader, Michael Bleecker wrote the song.  They are releasing a worship album this Friday, and I am super excited about downloading it, as our worship leaders wrote several of the songs with them, so they are songs that we sing in church too.  Anyway, on their website, they have a "behind the song" about all the songs, but I especially loved this one.  Go read it!

Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)

One day when Heaven was filled with His praises

One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men, my example is He
Word became flesh and the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He
Hands that healed nations, stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore
Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him
From rising again

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day, my Beloved One, bringing
My Savior, Jesus, is mine

Oh, glorious day

We have sung that at church! I like it, too. PRC really needs to record where would I be without my savior as I'm pretty sure it'd be on non-stop for me...and let's face it, it's about what I want. Not. :) But seriously, love the song and would love to have it!

This has been my anthem for the past year. Check out Jeff Johnson's version. It's rockin' awesome. :)
