"Ancient Words"

These past few weeks I have spent some time looking back over journals, Bible studies, retreat message from the years past. I kept coming across copies of a certain hymn and copies of verses that share our identity in Christ. Really...like SEVERAL copies, all from different years, different places. Some copies were from my college days and our Bible study meetings others are more recent copies from my home Church. I'd like to share the words of these gems with you. Allow these "Ancient Words" to change you as you come with open hearts. Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing the gems that I have found. Gems that give life and give hope, that show we are Accepted, Secure, and Significant.


"Ancient Words"
written by Lynn DeShazo
Recorded by Michael W. Smith- "Worship Again" CD

Holy words long preserved
for our walk in this world,
They resound with God's own heart
Oh, let the Ancient words impart.

Words of Life, words of Hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us home.

CHORUS:
Ancient words ever true
Changing me, and changing you.
We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart.

Holy words of our Faith
Handed down to this age.
Came to us through sacrifice
Oh heed the faithful words of Christ.

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world.
They resound with God's own heart
Oh let the ancient words impart.

CHORUS x4

We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart
