Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Mighty to Save

I know - I'm early this week. I have a busy day tomorrow & I wanted to participate.

*please scroll down and turn off my blog music before playing the video*

This is Hillsong's version of Mighty to Save, a song that has been pulling at my heart for a few months now. I'm sharing the lyrics, too, because they are simple but they remind me the gospel is simple. We complicate it, we disbelieve it because it is difficult to believe that something so profound, so necessary, so vital does not require us to complete some checklist, or jump through some hoop lit with fire. Ask any follower of Jesus Christ - they will tell you of their times struggling with doubt.

Salvation is a gift and all we have to do is accept that God offers us this gift at His cost, not ours. The cost was beyond our knowing - He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave - but it was His choice to pay. For that, when I still myself and focus all I have on the knowledge that this is the truth, I weep tears of incredible joy. This song does that to me, too.

Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me

Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Savior
The hope of nations

Savior He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save

Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
And fill my life again

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender I surrender

Savior He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus

Savior He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save
He is Mighty to save
Forever Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus
