City Under Siege – Psalm 31:21

City Under Siege – Psalm 31:21

Clouds of darkness
Like an army
At the city walls
Waves of depression
Like the forces of nothingness
Setting siege to a citadel
Frozen under the onslaught
And there my walls fell
I was laid bare
Still You came
Brightest of light
Host of stars
To ignite the dark
The armies of shadow
Fell silent at Your calling
In new strength to rise
I’m alive within the light
Praise be oh Lord
To the One to save me
For this deliverance
Ever thankful
This soul ever faithful

Ruins – Psalm 31:21

The battlements had fallen
My defences all torn
Still before me they came
Under siege the sought
To take all I had
Until love showered down
From high above
A love so amazing
That which came against fell away
His light shone upon my ruins
And I rose up from the dust
Now with His love and strength
There ruins are rebuilding
So they can take from me no more

From The Fortress

From The Fortress (Psalm 31:21)

From my fortress
In the dark city
Surrounded
On every side
My enemies
My own self
Laid siege upon my life
But He came
Through their ranks
Wiping them all away
He showed me a life
Beyond my walls
A wonderful love
With His mercy and grace
Now I praise His name
Higher than any other
Our great and mighty Lord
The saviour of us all

Psalm 31:21

Psalm 31:21

There have been so many times over the last year that I’ve felt I’ve been under siege, but because of His love I made it through.

AT THE CROSS (LOVE RAN RED) by CHRIS TOMLIN
There’s a place where mercy reigns and never dies,
There’s a place where streams of grace flow deep and wide.
Where all the love I’ve ever found,
Comes like a flood,
Comes flowing down.

At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life.
I’m in awe of You
I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white.
I owe all to You
I owe all to You Jesus.

There’s a place where sin and shame are powerless.
Where my heart has peace with God and forgiveness.
Where all the love I’ve ever found.
Comes like a flood,
Comes flowing down.

At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life.
I’m in awe of You
I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white.
I owe all to You
I owe all to You Jesus.

Here my hope is found
Here on holy ground
Here I bow down
Here arms open wide
Here You save my life
Here I bow down
Here I bow down

At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life.
I’m in awe of You
I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white.
I owe all to You
I owe all to You Jesus.
