In Your promises, our hearts turn brave

"And now, God, do it again—
bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
So those who planted their crops in despair
will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
So those who went off with heavy hearts
will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing."

(Psalm 126:5-6, The Message)

"They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing.
He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping
[at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing]
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him."

(Psalm 126:5-6, Amplified Bible)

Moving from the realm of the valuable into the realm of the precious.


Now is the time when heaven blends with early saints
The world resounds as angels sing "Our God reigns"

I give my all to You
I give my all to You

From heaven's throne, Your river flows to this land
And on this rock, foundations lay
Here we stand

I give my all to You
I give my all to You

Pouring out this treasure You gave
In Your promises our hearts turn brave
I will arise and lay down this sacrifice
As we're building Your house on high

Your kingdom come, Your will be done
On earth as in heaven
