I Then Shall Live…


If you don’t know and have never heard this song, please go listen..Ernie Haase & SSQ + Gaither Vocal Band – I Then Shall Live …

I then shall live as one who’s been forgiven
I’ll walk with joy to know my debts are paid
I know my name is clear before my Father
I am His child and I am not afraid
So greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother
The law of love I gladly will obey

I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion
I’ve been so loved I’ll risk loving, too
I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges
I’ll dare to see another’s point of view
And when relationships demand commitment
Then I’ll be there to care and follow through

Your kingdom come around and through and in me
Your power and glory let them shine through me
Your Hallowed name, oh may I bear with honor
And may Your living Kingdom come in me
The Bread of Life, O’ may I share with honor
And may You feed a hungry world through me

Amen, Amen, Amen.

This hymn text, written by Gloria Gaither, captures the experience of forgiveness and love with positive, resolute words of commitment, which are perfectly matched with Jean Sibelius’ stirring tune Finlandia.

The Path Continues……
