Our Condition to God's Heart's Desire

Our condition was dead in offenses,
To the flesh we were enslaved.
But together with Christ Jesus He has raised us,
By His grace we have been saved. [Eph. 2:2-6]

God, Your mercy and Your love have reached us,
You have made us alive.
By Your Spirit entering our spirit,
In Your life we've been revived. [Eph. 2:4-5]
We were once far off but have become near
In the blood of the dear Son.
In His flesh abolished all the ordinances,
Thus creating two as one. [Eph. 2:13, 15]

We have access directly to the Father
Through Christ Jesus, our Lord
In one Spirit, whether Jew or Gentile,
Fellowship has been restored. [Eph. 2:18]
Make the prayer that Paul had in Ephesians
The prayer in our daily plan.
Father strengthen us with power through Your Spirit,
Deep into the inner man. [Eph. 3:16]

Lord, keep spreading into every corner,
Lord, keep gaining each part.
We allow you to have the room within us.
Make Your home in all our heart. [Eph. 3:17]
Lord, Your riches are so unsearchable.
I can never comprehend.
But with all the saints in such a corporate church life
Your dimensions apprehend. [Eph. 3:8, 18-19]

By Your mercy, keep me in Your Body,
Taking the rich supply.
Through each member's function in their measure
All the Body edify. [Eph. 4:16]
Deep within You is the greatest mystery,
One that countless men have searched.
But to us You have unveiled the revelation,
Now we see Christ and the church. [Eph. 5:32]

Lord, we're wholly for Your heart's desire—
Make Your church sanctified.
Through the washing in the pure word's water
May You gain Your glorious Bride. [Eph. 5:25-26]

Wow! What a beautiful song! So full of the riches of the truth! I love the verse references next to each verse too!

Thank You, Lord, for unveiling the revelation to us, Christ and the Church!
