Ever Free

House of Prayer - Sharpened At the Altar Crossed
Ever Free
by Michael Doyle

Joining in as the heavens and earth sings
Hoping a white Christmas will bring
This world's resounding joy
As every good boy and girl unwrap their toys

In wonder of love, we gather and rejoice
Gathered together to make a little noise
All in worship of the Lord we praise
Love calms our fears throughout our days

Renewed again in faith as of old
Al of the glory in the tales we're told
His wonderous love fills our life
Bringing us, His peace instead of strife

Looking up to the nighttime skies
Reverently praying with uplifted eyes
Needing to hear a joyful proclamation
As we join hands in prayer across our nation

Jesus came to us as Emanuel
Godhead wearing as it were a human veil
Holiness has given righteousness to us all
Eternal life given as a cross adorns our wall

The king in our heart rules over our land
This is the liberation of His good command
No evil will have its final victory
It is in God that we will live forever free
