The Local Churches as the Testimony of Jesus
|Churches shine, Jesus' testimony bright;
They're Christ's reproduction, Spirit's reprint;
God Himself's their light, their one expression;
Christ's appearance and virtues they possess.
New ark we're ent'ring, age dark forsaking;
Noah's house, the new kingdom heralding.
Let the word of truth fill and constitute;
With our God be infused to Him express.
|Lord Jesus, take me, break me; I'd hold nothing back from Thee;
Fill me till it is no more I that live;
That by Your resurrection life, we would Your testimony be.
We would be the church You long for, testimony of Jesus on the earth.
O Lord, Your dear bride are we, loving You so crazily,
Fill us wholly, live Yourself exclusively;
Lord, by Your resurrection power, make us fully one with Thee,
As Your shining golden lampstands, Fulfilling Your heart's desire today.
|Lampstands, gold living trees, incarnate God,
With God's nature, show forth resurrection;
Planting new church trees, to all earth spreading;
Sprouting, growing and blooming, bearing fruit;
The seven lampstands: one form, one nature;
Testimony, expression are but one;
Fellowship and move all are in one flow;
Just one ministry, and one Body.
