I rewrote the words to the song, Your Love Oh Lord by Third Day. The song has always been a favorite of mine but I wanted to change it up a little. I wanted it to speak of the reality of Christ pouring his Life, in the person of the spirit, into us. Today, Christ is only seen and heard when we lay down our life. Setting ourselves aside pushes the stop button on our life and unleashes His life so he is expressed. I also see that allowing Him to have His way and Life in and through us, as practically expressed through laying down of our lives, is an act of returning to Him the love He so freely gives us. There is no greater love than to lay down our lives for our Brother, Friend, and King. 

Also, Mind Shift: We’re not only mini, individual, self-contained rivers. We are all a part of the ONE RIVER and we express that ONE RIVER.  It takes all of His saints to fully express this deep mighty flowing river. Singing, speaking and beholding this reality allows us to continue to receive the deep river of Christ’s Life, then we allow it to flow out of us and back to Him. It is a never ending circle, Life flowing from Him to us and us to Him, both individually and corporately. This never ending flow of LIFE, is seen practically fleshed out, when we speak Christ to one another and sing Christ to one another and declare Christ to one another. 

Your Life Oh Lord

Your Life oh Lord
Come down from heaven
Your divine life
Resides in us now
Your body’s seen
In and through your Holy Ones, yeah
Your life flows out
Like a river deep

Chorus
And we will lay down our lives
To express you our King
We will find our life
Deeply hidden with You.
