I am so very thankful when a word or a song comes my way just when I need to hear it the most. Yesterday morning as I was taking the Bear to school a woman on the radio shared about what this track had meant to her after the death of her mother. My heart delighted in hearing the timeless lyrics of this modern hymn (originally written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend in 2001) sung fresh with a gentle and humble voice.
The last stanza blesses me tremendously:
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
I thought this might be a gift to you today, too. Here it is, performed by Owl City.
