[Piano version] [Vocal sound file sung by the composer] [Video recorded by the composer (You Tube)] [Score of song]
By a pure life
Jesus gave me power to be God's own.
By a pure love
In my life his saving grace was sown.
Power in purity
Freedom in grace.
We see Jesus dimly now,
But soon face to face.
All good and perfect gifts
Come from above,
Like power in purity,
Action in love.
Blessed are the
Pure in heart because our God they'll see,
And will show his
Wond'rous love throughout eternity.
Song written for Spiritual Explosion, a youth rally at the Riverside congregation in Albuquerque, NM. This year’s theme is, as the title suggests, “power in purity.”
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matt 5:8)
Spiritual Explosion XV will be held April 24-26, 2015. Youth (or adults) wishing to attend should contact the Riverside Church of Christ in Albuquerque for details and housing reservations.
