Ashes (feat. Chris McClarney)

on March 03, 2017

 

Ashes represent death. I don't know about you, but is there any area of your past you can look back to and see ashes? See brokenness, places you want to mend, places that have any kind of devastation? I think that's all of us. I see a world of beauty and brokenness all around us, namely because I've seen myself. However, I've seen something greater. I've seen Jesus, seen the way He works, the way He heals, the way He completely and totally restores what was horrifically and utterly stolen and once dead. "The son was dead For love He bled But He rose from the ashes His victory Now my destiny Because He rose from the ashes"

This is what Jesus died for, not just the first part of this chorus, but to give us total beauty for ashes. You and I were not meant to just be saved from hell, but hell on earth. Trials yes, persecutions yes, things that are unfair yes, BUT GOD! Here's the rest of the story; loved without reserve, yes! "More than a conqueror", yes! All the promises of God, "in Him, are yes and amen"! God is a Father whose character is more true and pure than the driven snow. A Father that whether you know it or not, has never once left you, nor would He ever forsake you, even on the darkest day that you still don't understand. There is an enemy, "the thief comes only to steal kill and destroy, but I have come that you would have life and life more abundantly" (John 10:10 ESV) But, there is a Father who defeated him and sent His son for love, to not only die, but to be raised again so that you and I could see every area of our hearts, families and dreams raised back to life for the glory of God. I pray your heart comes alive as you discover Gods heart for you in the face of what Jesus did through His death and resurrection. Thank you for listening and sharing my new song #Ashes with those that need to hear the greatest story ever written, the story of the cross.

Bless you! -DM

Lyrics: 

VERSE1
Let’s sing of the story
Of sorrow and glory
The author of life became flesh
His purpose was justice
To rescue and free us
But still we demanded His death
Our sin laid upon Him
We cursed and spat on Him
He hung as His mercy was shed
But He cried “it is finished”

CHORUS
The Son was dead
For love He bled
But He rose from the ashes
He rose from the ashes

VERSE2
With burning desire
He stepped in the fire
To take back what hell had once claimed
With untamed affection
The Father’s direction
He stormed through the enemy’s gates
With grace and with fury, salvation secured
He awoke and the stone rolled away
Now we cry “it is finished”

CHORUS2
The Son was dead
For love He bled
But He rose from the ashes
He rose from the ashes
His victory
Now our destiny
Cause He rose from the ashes
He rose from the ashes

BRIDGE
All blessing and honor
All glory and power
Be unto the Lamb
Hallelujah
Jesus, our victor
Both now and forever
We worship Your name
Hallelujah

Lyrics: 

VERSE 1:
See the Heavens open over us
Grace surrounding us in perfect love
Glory falling like an avalanche
I'm swept away, I'm swept away with you.

CHORUS:
I can feel Your heartbeat-beat, beating for us
I can feel Your heartbeat-beat, beating for us
Here in Your atmosphere
Heaven meets us here
I can feel Your heartbeat-beat, beating for us

VERSE2
And now we hear You singing over us
Your love, our anthem of deliverance
We're dancing to the sound of
Freedom raining over us
We're swept away, We're swept away with you

BRIDGE:
Nothing and no one
Could ever change Your love for us
Your love for us
Nothing and no one
Could ever change Your love for us
Your love for us

(REPEAT)

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
What manner of love is this
That You would lay down Your life
You paid the price the sacrifice for redemption
Now I am determined to know
Christ and Him crucified
Now alive and the power in me is You

Chorus 1
Now blameless You call me holy
I've been forgiven
You call me righteous I'm free
Now spotless You call me worthy
I am Your child
You call me chosen I'm Yours

Verse 2
I will boldly come
Running straight to the One
Singing over me Your songs of salvation
No one can take this from me
I'm a child that You name free
Nothing will separate us I'm held by You
Oh I know yes I know

Misc 1
(Bridge)
I am Yours I am Yours
I am Yours I am Yours
I am Yours I am Yours
I am Yours I am Yours
