Song Lyrics

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers toils and snares
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.

Way Maker
You are here, moving in our midst
I worship You
I worship You
You are here, working in this place
I worship You
I worship You

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

You are here, touching every heart
I worship You
I worship You
You are here, healing every life
I worship You
I worship You

You are here, turning lives around
I worship You
I worship You
You are here, turning lives around
I worship You
I worship You

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are

That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

Even when I don't see it, You're working
Even when I can't feel it, You're working
You never stop, You never stop working
You never stop, You never stop working

Even when I don't see it, You're working
Even when I can't feel it, You're working
You never stop, You never stop working
You never stop, You never stop working

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

Way maker, miracle worker,
promise keeper, light in the darkness,
My God, that is who You are

That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are

That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are
That is who You are


Scripture

Esther 4:12-17
12 When they told Mordecai Esther’s words, 13 he had them respond to Esther: “Don’t think for one minute that, unlike all the other Jews, you’ll come out of this alive simply because you are in the palace. 14 In fact, if you don’t speak up at this very important time, relief and rescue will appear for the Jews from another place, but you and your family will die. But who knows? Maybe it was for a moment like this that you came to be part of the royal family.” 15 Esther sent back this word to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are in Susa and tell them to give up eating to help me be brave. They aren’t to eat or drink anything for three whole days, and I myself will do the same, along with my female servants. Then, even though it’s against the law, I will go to the king; and if I am to die, then die I will.” 17 So Mordecai left where he was and did exactly what Esther had ordered him.

Message:

"Building a Bridge to God's Future"

If we desire to live into God’s hopeful future we must be willing to use the gifts and circumstances we have in order to promote God’s love and grace in the world. Everything we have and everything we are is a gift from God, and who knows, maybe we have our special gifts for times like these?
