Someday, Forevermore or Bond of Freedom

(for we who share the bond of freedom in Christ)
For now we are apart but someday
worshippers will sing together forever and ever!
This first song is very fitting for the times we are in
(worth the while to read the translation)



1 Thess.4:16-18

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, 
with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, 
and the dead in Christ will rise first. 
After that, we who are still alive and are left 
will be caught up together with them 
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 
And so we will be with the Lord forever. 
Therefore encourage one another with these words.

From sea to sea and shore to shore we who believe are bound 
By a sweet and communal cord of common, holy ground 
The blood that washes sinners clean and sets the cursed soul free 
Is Mercy’s universal vein that binds God’s family 

Salvation, wrought through Jesus Christ is our saving faith 
His death, to pay the debtor’s price no offering could erase 
For blood of bulls and rams could not atone and justify 
Only a Perfect Lamb, the Son of God could satisfy 

And by His outpoured blood we are unified far and wide 
To be the family of God; His pure and spotless bride 
Not by our works (lest we would boast) but by the grace of He 
Who gave his uttermost upon the cross of Calvary 

From sea to sea and shore to shore, while onward ages roll 
A beautiful, mutual yoke binds soul to soul to soul 
Of we who are freed from death’s sting through He came to save 
Because He died and rose again, Christ has conquered the grave 

Jesus fulfilled salvation’s plan, His name above all names 
Has given to the soul of man, hope, without guilt’s past claims 
Redemption is the joy we share, His love the song we sing 
In universal praise and prayer to Jesus Christ our King
