If you came here through Spiritual Sunday, my post for that is right below this. I forgot to add on the extra to get you right there, but this is also a "Spiritual Sunday" post.
I decided to link this one up, too, because I wanted Charlotte, Ginger and others to see these songs.

Today, for Sunday Song, I am posting 2 songs that were sung in our early Classic Worship service. I think the song Always is just a beautiful reminder of the trials that people go through, and God is still Always there!

I had to post the song, "We Are Called to Be God's People", because I don't remember hearing it before, and it goes so well with the post by Charlotte on Spiritual Sundays, titled Where Have All the Christians Gone.

I wish you all a very blessed week!


"Always"

by
Building 429 from the album Building 429
I was standing in the pouring rain



One dark November night


Fighting off the bitter cold


When she caught my eye


Her face was taught and her eyes were filled


And then to my surprise


She pulled out a photograph


And my heart just stopped inside


She said "He would have been three today


I miss his smile, I miss his face."


What was I supposed to say


But I believe always always


Our Savior never fails


Even when all hope is gone


God knows our pain and His promise remains


He will be with you always


He was living in a broken world dreaming of a home


His heart was barely keeping pace


When I found him all alone


Remembering the way he felt


When his daddy said goodbye


Fighting just to keep the tears


And the anger locked inside


He's barely holding on to faith


But deliverance is on its way'
Cause I believe always always


Our Savior never fails


Even when all hope is gone


God knows our pain and His promise remains


He will be with you always


Friend I don't know where you are


And I don't know where you've been


Maybe you're fighting for your lifeOr just about to throw the towel in


But if you're crying out for mercy


If there's no hope left at all


If you've given everything you've got


And you're still about to fall


Well hold on, hold on, hold on'


Cause I believe always always


Our Savior never fails


Even when all faith is gone


God knows our pain and His promise remains


Always, Always


He will be with you always


He will be with you always


He will be with you




We Are Called to Be God's People

TEXT: Thomas A. Jackson, 1973



MUSIC: Franz Joseph Haydn, 1797


TUNE: AUSTRIAN HYMNMETER: 8.7.8.7.D.
We are called to be God's people,showing by our lives



His grace,one in heart and one in spirit,sign of hope for all the race.


Let us show how He has changed us,and remade us as His own,let us share our life togetheras we shall around His throne.
We are called to be God's servants,working in His world today;taking His own task upon us,all His sacred words obey.



Let us rise, then, to His summons,dedicate to Him our all,that we may be faithful servants,quick to answer now His call.
We are called to be God's prophets,speaking for the truth and right,standing firm for godly justice,bringing evil things to light.



Let us seek the courage needed, our high calling to fulfill,that the world may know the blessing of the doing of God's will.
