I love a lot of old Passion Worship songs, so I thought I’d listen to a few of the more recent albums and this song…guys, it had me jumping around the kitchen and yelling “thank You Jesus!”
Check out these lyrics guys! It talks about carrying the weight of sin and shame until Christ called us out of darkness, like the way He called Lazarus from the grave. We serve a God who brings dead people to life, people! If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will.
I was buried beneath my shame/Who could carry that kind of weight?/It was my tomb ’til I met You/I was breathing but not alive/All my failures I tried to hide/It was my tomb ’til I met You/You called my name and I ran out of that grave
Chorus: Out of the darkness/Into Your glorious day/You called my name and I ran out of that grave/Out of the darkness/Into Your glorious day
Now Your mercy has saved my soul/Now Your freedom is all I know/The old made new, Jesus, when I met You/You called my name and I ran out of that grave
Bridge: I needed rescue, my sin was heavy/But chains break at the weight of Your glory/I needed shelter, I was an orphan/Now You call me a citizen of heaven/When I was broken, You were my healing/Now Your love is the air that I’m breathing/I have a future, my eyes are open/’Cause when You called my name/I ran out of that grave
