I Then Shall Live
By Gloria Gaither
I then shall live as one who's been forgiven
I'll walk with joy to know my debts are paid
I know my name is clear before my Father
I am His child and I am not afraid
So greatly pardoned, I'll forgive my brother
The law of love, I gladly will obey
I then shall live as one who's learned compassion
I've been so loved, I'll risk loving, too
I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges
I'll dare to see another's point of view
And when relationships demand commitment
Then I'll be there to care and follow through
Your Kingdom come around and through and in me
Your Power and Glory, let them shine through me
Your Hallowed Name, oh may I bear with honor
And may Your living Kingdom come in me
The Bread of Life, oh may I share with honor
And may You feed a hungry world through me
This song epitomizes our heart's intent for the Abounding Hope Happenings--in our relationships with each other and with the LORD.
We realize that great joy will characterize our lives the more we see Jesus. With His Love in view we yearn to sing happy, happy songs--not just "serious" songs. That's because Isaiah 56:7 says the LORD
is making us joyful in His Presence. This happy, happy song describes and affirms that belief.
