“The Word”

A Spoken Word written & performed by Isaac Wimberley

01.
If there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them.

You see my brain has not yet reached the point
Where it could form a thought that could
Adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs – have not yet developed the ability to
Release a breath with enough agility to
Breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice – You see my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits,
That it’s hard to even send the praise up
You see – if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them

My God
His Grace is remarkable, Mercies are innumerable,
Strength is impenetrable
He is honourable, accountable, favourable
He’s UNSEARCHABLE yet knowable
INDEFINABLE yet approachable
INDESCRIBABLE yet personal

He is beyond comprehension, Further than imagination
Constant through generations, King of every nation
But if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And in trying to capture the one true God
Using my vocabulary would never do
But I use words as an expression
An expression of worship – to A SAVIOR
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise
So I use words (SELAH)

My heart EXTOLS the Lord, blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has – bound them both together
He has DEFEATED me in my rebellion
CONQUERED me in my sin
He has WELCOMED me into His presence
Completely invited me in

He has made Himself the object of my sight
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night
But if there are words for Him, Then, I don’t have them.

But what I DO HAVE is: GOOD NEWS
For my God knew that man-made words – would never do
The words are just tools – that we use to point to the Truth
So He sent His Son Jesus Christ as – THE Word
LIVING PROOF

He is the image of the Invisible God
The FIRST BORN of all Creation
For by Him all things were created
Giving nothingness – FORMATION
And by His Word He sustains in the POWER of His name
For He is before all things – And over all things He reigns
HOLY is His name!

So PRAISE HIM for His life (SELAH)
The way he persevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the – PERFECT SACRIFICE

PRAISE HIM for His death (SELAH)
That He willingly stood in our place,
That He lovingly endured the grave
That He BATTLED our Enemy
And on the THIRD DAY ROSE in victory (SELAH)

He is everything that was promised
Praise Him as the Risen King, Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us
And we will finally be – united with our Saviour for eternity
ETERNITY (SELAH)

So it’s not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to The Word
And The Word has a name:
HOPE has a name!
JOY has a name!
PEACE has a name!
LOVE has a name!
And that name is JESUS CHRIST!

PRAISE. HIS NAME. FOREVER!

I run to You when my heart is weak
I cling to You, You’re all I seek
It’s my heart’s desire to be close to You
Here in Your arms I’ll find my strength

Your love is pure, Your love is precious
Your love is all I need
Your love surrounds me, Your love astounds me
Your love is everything

I run to You when my heart is weak
I cling to You, You’re all I seek
It’s my heart’s desire to be close to You
Here in Your arms I’ll find my strength

Everything I want, everything I hope in
Everything my heart cries out for
Everything I want, everything I hope in
Everything my heart cries out for

Good, Good Father

I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, It’s who you are, It’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am

I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you can provide
Cause you know just what we need
Before we, we say a word

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, It’s who you are, It’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am

You’re a Good, Good Father
And I’m loved by you

You are perfect in all of your ways
Perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

I am not alone – Kari Jobe

I am not aloneI am not aloneYou will go before meYou will never leave me

When I walk through deep waters
I know that you will be with me
When I’m standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
I will not fear

I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me

In the midst of deep sorrow
I see your light is breaking through
The dark of night will not overtake me
I am pressing into you
Lord, you fight my every battle
And I will not fear

You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as your own
You’re my strength
You’re my defender
You’re my refuge in the storm
Through these trials
You’ve always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul
