A couple that have ministered to me over the years. Grave Robber There's a step that we all take alone An appointment we have with the great unknown Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass Like the flowers that fade, like the withering grass But life seems so long and death so complete And the grave an impossible portion to cheat But there's One who has been there and still lives to tell There is One who has been through both heaven and hell And the grave will come up empty-handed the day Jesus will come and steal us away (chorus) Where is the sting, tell me where is the bite When the grave robber comes like a thief in the night Where is the victory, where is the prize When the grave robber comes And death finally dies Many still mourn, many still weep For those that they love who have fallen asleep But we have this hope though our hearts may still ache Just one shout from above and they all will awake And in the reunion of joy we will see Death will be swallowed in sweet victory When the last enemy is gone, from the dust will come a song Those asleep will be awakened—not a one will be forsakened He shall wipe away our tears—He will steal away our fears There will be no sad tomorrow—there will be no pain and sorrow God's Own Fool It seems I've imagined him all of my life as the wisest of all of mankind; but if God's only wisdom is foolish to men, He must of seemed out of his mind. For even his family said He was mad and the priests said, A demon's to blame; but God in the form of this angry young man could not have seemed perfectly sane. When we in our foolishness thought we were wise He played the fool and He opened our eyes. When we in our weakness believed we were strong, He became helpless to show we were wrong And so we follow God's own fool; for only the foolish can tell. Believe the unbelievable; come be a fool as well. So come lose your life for a carpenter's son, for a madman Who died for a dream. Then you'll have the faith His first followers had, and you'll feel the weight of the beam. So surrender the hunger to say you must know, have the courage to say: I believe. For the power of paradox opens your eyes, and blinds those who say they can see. And so we follow God's own fool; for only the foolish can tell. Believe the unbelievable; come be a fool as well. Rushing Wind Rushing wind blow through this temple, Blowing out the dust within, Come and breathe your breath upon me, I've been born again. Holy Spirit, I surrender, take me where you want to go, Plant me by your living water, Plant me deep so I can grow. Jesus, you’re the one, who sets my spirit free, Use me Lord, glorify, your Holy Name through me. Separate me from this world Lord. Sanctify my life for you. Daily change me to your image, Help me bear good fruit. Every day you're drawing closer. Trials come to test my faith. But when all is said and done Lord, You know, it was worth the wait. Jesus, you’re the one, who set my spirit free, Use me Lord, glorify, your Holy Name through me. Rushing wind blow through this temple, Blowing out the dust within, Come and breathe your breath upon me, For I've been born again.
