Family of God – TSMSS

Family of God

I'm so glad I'm a part of the Family of God,
I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His Blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family,
The Family of God

You will notice we say "brother and sister" 'round here,
It's because we're a family and these are so near;
When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear.

From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King,
No longer an outcast, a new song I sing;
From rags unto riches, from the weak to the strong,
I'm not worthy to be here, but PRAISE GOD! I belong!

Chorus
I'm so glad I'm a part of the Family of God,
I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His Blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family,
The Family of God

We used to sing this song holding hands at the end of each service in a church I attended years ago. I've not sung it lately but I'm so glad you wrote out the words.

Blessings,
Debbie

our church is hosting judgement house this week and I am a backstage person let me tell you that where I sit I can hear the screams from hell and the angels in heaven sing and it makes one stop to think how wonderful it is to know that we are washed in his blood and we have an eternity with him promised to us

Precious lyrics! How awesome it is to BELONG! Thank you and God bless you, sister.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

We are grafted into the family of God ......... Family

Blessings and thank you Karen...for sharing these lyrics of the Gaither's song "Family of God" to remind us we belong and what it means to be part of the family of God! This part is the part that struck me (especially if you've been to Sita's Sanctum or Lidia's Crown of Beauty):

When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear. From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King,
No longer an outcast, a new song I sing; ...

Thanks sis for the beauty of these words and their meaning. May each day we show more of what this family is to others in need of belonging to God's family & knowing His love!

May you enJOY TSMSS & be blessed this weekend in His Presence! Hugs,
Peggy

This song brings tears of joy! We are family, as we call out Abba Father..adopted and grafted in by the power of the Holy Spirit...the lyrics, even without the music, mean so much to me. The words are true and speak to my heart. I'm so thankful for my brothers and sisters in the Lord. Thanks for sharing!

God bless,
Mary
