Inspirations

More Than Words

Lift up your hearts.
God has loved you with a tenderness beyond words.
Our God has remembered your faithfulness
And put aside your sin.
 
Lift up your hearts.
God has called you, believing in your goodness.
God has given you a new season of hope
And cast aside despair.
 
Lift up your hearts.
For God’s Word will not return empty or void.
It will accomplish the task for which it was sent.
 
Lift up your hearts.
For God’s word is alive within us
And we are unable to be silent.
We will sing the truth with our every breath.
 
We lift up our hearts to our God;
For we have known full well God’s justice and mercy.
What return can we make for all God’s goodness?
We will lift up our hearts
And reach out our hands to the poor.
