Beloved, Be Loved

Be loved
By the lover of your soul
By the one
Who gave up control
Of His life,
Laid it down
Traded His crown
For thorns,
Adoration for scorn
For your sake
He did take up His cross
To die,
To be crucified
A cruel death
With His final breath
He declared
It is finished
Has won
God’s only Son
Victorious, He
Rose from the grave
To save
And bring healing to all
Hear His call
Hear His glorious voice
One and all
Beloved, be loved
Beloved, be loved
Beloved, be loved
By God
And rejoice

Rock of Ages

Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
In the shelter of Your wing
Calm my fears as You sing
A song of peace over my soul
Be my Comforter, control
The raging storm within and out
Still my fears, remove my doubt
Let me know assurance blessed
When I’m overwhelmed, distressed
Help me know Jesus is mine
Emmanuel, a Friend divine
Faithful, True and closer than
Any of the sons of man
Whose Name is a tower strong
I call on You when I’ve been wronged
My Rock and Refuge be
The One who graciously delivers me
