This Life I Live

On Sunday we sang a new hymn called “This Life I Live” celebrating the fact that we who died with Christ now live for him, and live in hope of a glorious resurrection. The song is by Michael Morrow and there is a free recording of it performed at NTE09 here. There is better recording of it available through Emu Music on there Undivided Album. You can buy the Emu Music recording of it through iTunes for $1.69! Here are the lyrics:

This life I live is not my own
For my Redeemer paid the price
He took it to be his alone
To be his treasure and his prize
The things of earth I leave behind
To live in worship of my King
His is the right to rule my life
Mine is the joy to live for him

I died to sin upon the cross
I’m bound to Jesus in his death
The old is gone and now I must
Rely on him for every breath
With every footstep that I tread
What mysteries he has in store
I cannot know what lies ahead
But know that he has gone before

There is a voice that pierced the grave
A power that rolled the stone away
A sound of life, I know I’m saved
The voice of God has called my name
So I will rise, and in the air
Behold the glory of the King
I will not fear to meet him there
I know my life is hid with him
