Utterly Awed...

Looking unto the author of
Our joy and peace, faith, hope and love
Compels us to consider more
The who or what we’re living for

This gracious gift wherein we stand
Runs rife with mercies from a hand
Scarred with the evidence of grace
Where none was fit to take His place

The cross, ah, who can comprehend
A God whose grief and love would send
His only beloved Son, Jesus
To be the sacrifice for us

Thus in return we ought to be
Role models of humility
And follow the example of
The One who taught us how to love

(Forgive us Lord, when we forget
For we are all just learning yet
And my, oh my, so oft we prove
How much we need your grace and love)

Then, looking to the author of
Redemption’s prize; faith, hope and love
Peace and joy overflows its banks
With worship’s utter, awestruck thanks

  ...let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, 
 and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; 
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
 despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
