“The simple idea for the chorus of this song, funny enough,

came from when I was on a jog,

and a lot of times I’ll write songs when I run.

I was running on a path where there are some big rocks.

Every time I run down that path, those rocks are there.

There was the weird contrast in my mind and heart

that my mind and my heart are ever-changing and ever-moving,

and there’s this place I come back to where things are always the same.

These rocks are always there.

It popped into my mind that the Rock won’t move.

At that point, I thought of our ultimate Rock,

and that’s Christ.

In the ever changing nature on planet earth,

to know that there’s a firm foundation underneath us,

a God that never changes

and a story of redemption and a salvation that never changes.

I knew right then that I had to put that into a song.”

When the ground beneath my feet gives way
And I hear the sound of crashing waves
All my world is washing out to sea
I’m hidden safe in the
God Who never moves
Holding fast to the promise of the Truth
That You are holding tighter still to me

The Rock won’t move and His word is strong
The Rock won’t move and His love can’t be undone
The Rock won’t move and His word is strong
The Rock won’t move and His love can’t be undone
The Rock of our Salvation

My hope is in the promise of Your blood
My support within the raging flood
Even in the tempest, I can sing
I’m hidden safe in the God Who never moves
Holding fast to the promise of Your Truth
That You are holding tighter still to me

Woah, woah, woah…
The Rock of our Salvation

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
The Rock won’t move, the Rock won’t move
When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest in His unchanging Grace
The Rock won’t move, the Rock won’t move

1 Corinthians 10:4

“For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them,

and that Rock was Christ.”

Matthew 7:24-27

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine,

and does them,

I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:

and the rain descended,

the floods came,

and the winds blew

and beat on that house;

and it did not fall,

for it was founded on the rock.

But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine,

and does not do them,

will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

and the rain descended, the floods came,

and the winds blew and beat on that house;

and it fell.

And great was its fall.”

Tyler Miller, continues, Our salvation rests upon His eternally unchanging substitution in our place,

which is the Rock of our Salvation.

It’s the Cross,

and the nature of God that can’t change.

There’s a line in the song that says,

‘I’m holding fast to the promise of the Truth

that You are holding tighter still to me.’

If my hope resides in me,

I’m hopeless,

but my hope resides in God

who doesn’t change.

He’s a covenant keeping God

and He’s chosen to give His love to me,

and that’s a Rock that I can go to always.

No matter what emotional state I’m in,

and no matter the type of day I’m having,

the Rock doesn’t change.

Ultimately, it is a song of hope for the Church.

Everything we do and everything we have

needs to come from the place of who we are in Jesus.”

Proverbs 18:10

“The Name of the Lord is a strong tower;

the righteous run to it and are safe.”

Tyler says,

“There’s safety and security in the knowledge of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus.

There’s only one Name under Heaven by which we can be saved:

Jesus. 

Trusting completely in the Lord’s Grace for liberty from sin and self-reliance.

 ‘The Rock won’t move and His Word is strong / The Rock won’t move and His love can’t be undone / The Rock won’t move and His Word is strong, / The Rock won’t move and His love can’t be undone…’

The Rock of our Salvation.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,

all other ground is sinking sand.

‘The Rock won’t move, no, the Rock won’t move!’

That’s a wonderful Truth that all followers of Jesus can adopt as their anthem of faith.

There are over 120 passages that reference the rock throughout Scripture.

Our Firm Foundation, Christ the Solid Rock,

is the only ground where we can stand that won’t move

or, let us down.

That’s something worth singing about.” 

Amen!!!

Easter Version of “Hallelujah”

Standard

Kelley Mooney’s approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

Be Blessed on this Resurrection Day!!

4-20-14 Easter 024

A crown of thorns placed on His head
He knew that He would soon be dead
He said did You forget Me Father, did You?
They nailed Him to a wooden cross
Soon all the world would feel the loss
Of Christ the King before His Hallelujah

Hallelujah

He hung His head and prepared to die
Then lifted His face up to the sky
Said I am coming home now Father to You
A reed which held His final sip
Was gently lifted to His lips
He drank His last and gave His soul to glory

Hallelujah

The soldier who had used his sword
To pierce the body of our Lord
Said truly this is Jesus Christ our Savior
He looked with fear upon his sword
Then turned to face his Christ and Lord
Fell to his knees crying Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Took from His head the thorny crown
And wrapped Him in a linen gown
And laid Him down to rest inside the tomb
The holes in His hands, His feet and side
Now in our hearts we know He died
To save us from ourselves, Oh, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Three days went by, again they came
To move the stone, to bless the slain
With oil and spice anointing, Hallelujah
But as they went to move the stone
They saw that they were not alone
But Jesus Christ has risen, Hallelujah

Hallelujah!

Amen!

I Know My Redeemer Lives…I Spoke With Him This Morning!!

Psalm 19:14

“May these words of my mouth

and this meditation of my heart   

be pleasing in Your sight,   

Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 027

Jesus,

You are my Redeemer

You have paid the price

You have delivered us from bondage

You have set things right!

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?

And who told the ocean you can only come this far?

And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?

Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well, I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

All of creation testifies

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 068

This life within me cries

I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God

That spins things in orbit

Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak

And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken

They conquered death to bring me victory

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 071

Now I know, my Redeemer lives

He lives

To take away my shame

And He lives

Forever I’ll proclaim

That the payment for my sins

Was the precious life He gave

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 096

And now He’s alive and

There’s an empty grave!

I know, that I know, that I know, that I know, that I know

He lives

My Redeemer lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow

3-12-14 to 3-13-14 Lunch and Harbor Beach 114

He lives

I know, I know

He lives 

I spoke with Him this morning!

He lives

The tomb is empty

He Lives!

I’m going to tell everybody!!

Job 38

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said…

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?  

…Who shut up the sea behind doors…when I said,

‘This far you may come and no farther”…

    …Have you ever given orders to the morning,

or shown the dawn its place,

…Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea  

or walked in the recesses of the deep?

…Have the gates of death been shown to you?

Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?

Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?   

Tell me, if you know all this.

  …Can you raise your voice to the clouds

    and cover yourself with a flood of water?

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?   

Do they report to you,

‘Here we are’?

Who provides food for the raven   

when its young cry out to God   

and wander about for lack of food?”

And being in anguish, He prayed more earnestly,

and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”
