He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Wednesday's Word

A friend of mine asked the question on facebook- "what is your favorite worship song dealing with God, justice, mercy and compassion." I answered and decided I would share it here also.

This is my prayer for the week, may The Lord use it to richly challenge you , encourage and empower you as you live to work towards His kingdom.

Matt Papa- Open Hands 
)


Verse 1:
To give unselfishly, to love the least of these
Jesus I'm learning how to live with open hands
All these treasures that I own will never satisfy my soul
Jesus I lay them at your throne with open hands

chorus:
So I lift my hands, open wide, let the whole world see
how you loved, how you died, how you set me free!
Free at last, I surrender all I am with open hands,
with open hands

Verse 2:
To finally let go of my plans
These earthly kingdoms built of sand
Jesus at your cross I stand with open hands

chorus:
As I lift my hands, open wide, let the whole world see
how you loved, how you died, how you set me free!
Free at last, I surrender all I am with open hands,
with open hands

You took the nails, you bore the crown

You hung your head, your love poured out
You took my place, you paid the price
So ,Jesus, now I will give my life!!!!!!!!!

chorus:
As I lift my hands, open wide, let the whole world see
how you loved, how you died, how you set me free!
Free at last, I surrender all I am with open hands,
with open hands

how you loved, how you died, how you set me free!
Free at last, I surrender all I am with open hands,
with open hands

with open hands,
with open hands,
with open hands
