Reasons for rejoicing

With acknowledgements and apologies to the late, great Ian Dury:



Reasons for rejoicing, 1…2…3.

God is in His heaven,
He’s defeated Satan,
He’s Lord over all the earth.

Jesus died for our sins,
Was buried and he rose again,
He now sits at God’s right hand

The Holy Spirit came down,
Tongues of fire all around,
Empowers us to this day

We’re all one church together
Supporting one another
Together through thick and thin.

His word is in the Bible,
Written down to guide us,
The cornerstone for our lives.

When troubles come upon us,
Things get too much for us,
We can take it all to God in prayer

His armour will surround us,
Nothing will stand against us,
Because He’s on our side.

He knows our every weakness,
His strength will come upon us,
He’ll guide us along the way.

He’ll come again in triumph,
Gather us together,
And take us all back home.
