You saw me from a distance,
Eons ago and before my mothers womb,
You delighted in me,
In the creation of your child,
And sang over me.
All heaven rejoices.

For you Lord, have broken the shackles,
You have set the captives free,
And opened blind eyes,
Your creation sings of your glory.

He sings over you,
Such is His delight,
Precious in His eyes,
Love unconditional,
And what does He see?

Conceived, in His mind,
Precious creation,
Do you not know,
He died for you.
Utterly in love,
He did not see you writhing in your filth,
He did not see the sickness in you,
He did not see you bound in your sin.

What did He see?
He sees you,
Perfect in His love,
His arms encircle,
And His blood covers you,
He whispers in your heart,
“Trust me. I love you my child, for eternity”.

Praise Him,
Let all creation praise Him,
Our redeemer and saviour and friend,
Father to the fatherless,
Encompassing love to the rejected,
He rejoices and sings over you,
Precious child,
His child for eternity.

Praise the Lord and His Holy Name,
Forever and ever, Creator of heaven and earth.
Is there anything to mighty for Him?
The heavens are His throne,
The earth His footstool.

He speaks and all creation listens.
Mountains bow down before Him,
The earth shakes and
the seas are gathered under His cloak.

To His people,
Those who love Him and obey Him,
Prepare your hearts,
For the Lord is doing a new thing.

Hold fast, hold fast, in the days ahead.
For your faith will be tested.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
For though the earth be covered in darkness,
Yet He will set aside His faithful ones.

Though evil may fill the earth,
Stand strong in your faith.
For His reward is for those that are faithful.
Even the elect are deceived,
priest and prophet alike.

But hold fast to your faith,
For in a moment,
You who are His, will see Him.
And when He comes,
He will gather you to Himself,
And you will know your faith has not been in vain.

For you will know,
The perfect love of the Lord God Almighty,
And forever be in His presence.
