Out of Ashes, Into Freedom

February 19, 2011

Here is a song by Steve Green that knit my heart back together greatly over the last several months. Perhaps it’s what you need right now.

Out of Ashes

Out of ashes prayers are lifted
From the weary mourners call
Broken hearts are being mended
Jesus’ stripes can heal them all

Out of ashes into freedom
Out of dying into life
See the joy that’s set before us
In the blinding cross of Christ

Out of ashes sinners’ finding
Mercy hope and righteousness
Revel in their new found passion
Worshiping in thankfulness

Out of ashes He is risen
Seated with the heavenly hosts
Clouds of witnesses are praising
Father, Son and Holy Ghost
