Authority and sufficiency, Dependence, Eternal and Enduring, Obedience, The People of God



Verse 1
Prepare our hearts, O God
Help us to receive
Break the hard and stony ground
Help our unbelief
Plant your word down deep in us
Cause it to bear fruit
Open up our ears to hear
Lead us in your truth

Show us Christ, show us Christ
O God reveal your glory
Through the preaching of your word
Until every heart confesses, “Christ is Lord”

Verse 2
Your word is living light
Upon our darkened eyes
Guards us through temptations
Makes the simple wise
Your word is food for famished ones
Freedom for the slave
Riches for the needy soul
Come, speak to us today

Where else can we go Lord
Where else can we go
You have the words of eternal life

  Sample Introduction

After some challenging teaching many followers walked away from Jesus. Turning to his disciples he asked, “Do you want to go, too?” to which Peter replied, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” Jesus not only has the words of eternal life but he himself is the eternal word. Let us sing this song as a prayer to prepare our hearts to hear our God’s word and ask that he would show us Christ.
