God is a God of Blessing and Glory

1
God is a God of blessing and glory.
He is our history; we are His story,
Formed in His image, made to express
His life and nature, all to bless.
  Showers of blessing come in their season.
Ask and God comes, abundantly given;
The God of hope fills us with all joy
That we’d abound, His pow’r employ.
2
God rescues us, His flock that was scattered,
Driven away from refuge and battered;
No longer prey nor scattered abroad,
We are in Christ, well fed by God!
3
Cov’nant of peace, God’s purpose bespeaking,
Binds us to Him, secure in His keeping.
God fills our hearts and makes us a place
Where all receive His life through grace!
4
Christ as our life yields fruit bearing, increase,
Fellowship, building, blending, and real peace,
Freedom from self, life conquering death,
Day after day and breath by breath.
5
God gives the Spirit, gives not by measure,
Pours out Himself, a limitless treasure,
Given in Christ Who Spirit became,
Life-giving gift we fan to flame.
6
God as the Spirit is our true blessing.
He shepherds us to pastures, expressing
Both tender love and bounteous supply,
Blessings in Christ to multiply.
7
God’s house is filled with glorious radiance—
Filled with His speaking, filled with His presence;
Built up in oneness, life we express,
All that God is, in Christ, possess.
8
God of salvation, come we now, seeking,
Prayerful in worship, joyfully singing,
Blessing Your name, Your blessings express;
All that You are is our bequest.
  Showers of blessing come in their season;
We ask, You come, abundantly given;
You are the hope Who fills us with joy
That we’d abound, Your pow’r employ.
