The Word was, The Word is, and The Word will be….

My wife sang this song in church yesterday. I’ve heard it many times. The words are wonderful. But something happens when someone sings for God…. I was touched. My hair stood on end and my heart softened and I cried – all for the praise and love God has for us…. It was an awesome worship experience.

This video is not my wife singing, but I pray you are touched by God through the song as I have been.

Lyrics by Sarah Groves

I’ve done every devotional
Been every place emotional
Trying to hear a new word from God
And I think it’s very odd,
that while I attempt to help myself
My Bible sits upon my shelf
With every promise I could ever need

Chorus:
And the Word was
And the Word is
And the Word will be…//

People are getting fit for Truth
Like they’re buying a new tailored suit
Does it fit across the shoulders
Will it fade when it gets older
We throw ideas that aren’t in style
In the Salvation Army pile
And search for something more to meet our needs

CHORUS

I think it’s time I rediscover
All the ground that I have covered, like
Seek Ye first what a verse
We are pressed but not crushed,
perplexed but don’t despair.
We are persecuted but not abandoned
We are no longer slaves
we are daughters and sons,
and when we are weak
we are very strong

And neither death nor life
nor present nor future
nor depth nor height
can keep us from the love of Christ
And the Word I need
is the Word that was
that put on flesh to dwell with us.
In the beginning….

CHORUS

The old Word is the new Word is
The old Word is the new Word…
The new Word is the old Word…
The old Word is the new Word..

  2. I love the history and value of Christian hymnology, it should lead us to the Throne of God!
