How Great!

Being our Lord's Day, you won't be surprised that I tell you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) that it is a wonderful time to worship.

Yes, to worship in spirit and in truth.  And, through music.

A few weeks ago, a Facebook (FB) friend, Frank Dietzel who lives not far away and who has lived in my city, and has known people I know/knew, shared some music with me.  Today, I'll share it with you.

Normally, I try to locate music with the lyrics to be viewed on the YouTube video, but I didn't do that this time.  Why?  The singer seemed to support our Saviour, so very much... and it was 'live', but recorded.

The name of the music is How Great Is The Love.  Here is a link for you to listen and/or sing along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqcWrSh0LZI&feature=youtu.be .  The lyrics are below.

How Great Is The Love

Thank You for the way
That You love us, how You love us
Thank You for the way
You have made us

We were created
For Your pleasure, for Your presence
For the glory of Your name
Thank You for the way that You love us

Jesus, faithful King
Lord, with grateful hearts we sing
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior


(This wasn't recorded:
The weight of the cross, the curse of our shame
You carried it all and rose from the grave
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior, of our Savior)

Thank You for the grace
That has saved us, You forgave us
Thank You for the way
You have freed us

We have been ransomed
We've been rescued, we've been purchased
With the price of Your own life
Thank You for the way that You love us

Jesus, faithful King
Lord, with grateful hearts we sing
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior

The weight of the cross, the curse of our shame
You carried it all and rose from the grave
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior, of our Savior

Thank You for the way
That You love us, how You love us
Thank You for the way
That You love us, how You love us


(The singer is singing some of her own words/lyrics)

(These lyrics were not recorded:
Thank You for the way
That You love us, how You love us
Thank You for the way
That You love us)

Jesus, faithful King
Lord, with grateful hearts we sing
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior

The weight of the cross, the curse of our shame
You carried it all and rose from the grave
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior, of our Savior


(The singer is singing some of her own words/lyrics, again... until she finished singing)

(These lyrics were not recorded:
How great, how great is Your love
Jesus, how You love us
Your great love, Your great love)

While I can say this music was great, I must say that our Saviour's love is even greater!

He loves us so very much.  And, always has!

So much so, that even though we are sinners, He loved us and died for us, before we even came to earth.

Just as we read, in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

How wonderful is Christ's love for us! 

How wonderful is God the Father's love for us! 

And, how wonderful is the love we have even today, from the Holy Spirit!

We are truly blessed.

Well, as long as we have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  For then, we shall spend eternity in Heaven with Him, after our life here on earth, ends.

For this I am thankful.  And, will always praise Him!


Until next time...
