New Songs

We love to sing at Grace, and we are blessed by such a variety of good Christian worship music. Here are more songs from groups we have benefited from recently.

Forever Jesus (Official Lyric Video) - Keith & Kristyn Getty, Matt Papa, Stuart Townend

We are excited to release this brand new modern hymn from writers Matt Papa and Stuart Townend, “Forever Jesus.”

Stuart Townend, co-author of "Forever Jesus", writes:
Little did we know, when
we were crafting the last verse of this new hymn, how relevant the lyric would be to the times we are living in:

“My final breath shall be forever Jesus
When shadows lengthen before my eyes;
My Lord and Friend, companion through the valley
When dearest ones are left behind,
His hand will lead me to the light.”

Not only are so many of us facing the prospect of battling this awful virus that has claimed so many lives already. But loved ones, relatives and friends are literally having to "be left behind" as the ill are taken into hospital, because of the dangers of passing on the virus. How important, then, to be reminded that Christ is there to "lead us to the light" - whether that is the light of eventual recovery, or (and this is the reality) the light of His eternal presence.
Perhaps we are not keen to be reminded of the awfulness of the times in which we live in a song! But to know that we are completely held in His loving arms, and guided by His all-powerful hand, is so vital for every single one of us right now.

Verse 1
My hymn of praise shall be “forever Jesus”
My firm foundation in shifting sands
My strength and hope through many fears and failures
The disappointments of the past
His constant love has held me fast

Chorus 1
So for all my days I will sing my praise
To the King, “forever Jesus”
Though the storms may rage He is strong to save
He’s the King forever Jesus

Verse 2
My song of joy shall be “forever Jesus”
Who bore the suffering, who made a way
His life a gift, His death a precious ransom
That wipes the sinner’s guilt away
And turns our night to glorious day

Verse 3
My final breath shall be “forever Jesus”
When shadows lengthen before my eyes
My Lord and Friend, Companion through the valley
When dearest ones are left behind,
His hand will lead me to the light

Chorus 2
When I meet His gaze I will sing my praise
To the King, “forever Jesus”
All my sorrows past, I am home at last
With my King, “forever Jesus!”
