Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Weekly Hymn: City of God

on September 12, 2014

I love this song – we should gather and build a city for God: one that gives praise to him, one that’s full of light and love, and one that is complete with joy.

Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!
A new day is dawning for all those who weep.
The people in darkness have seen a great light.
The Lord of our longing has conquered the night.

Chorus:
Let us build the city of God.
May our tears be turned into dancing!
For the Lord, our light and our love,
has turned the night into day!

We are sons of the morning; we are daughters of day.
The One who has loved us has brightened our way.
The Lord of all kindness has called us to be
a light for his people to set their hearts free.

God is light; in him there is no darkness.
Let us walk in his light, his children, one and all.
O comfort my people; make gentle your words.
Proclaim to my city the day of her birth.

O city of gladness, now lift up your voice!
Proclaim the good tidings that all may rejoice!
