This is a great song by Keith and Kristen Getty. Ever since we learned it a few years ago, it has been one of our favorite songs to sing together as a family. 🙂
Here is a lyric video Rosy put together for this song. 🙂
Singing, are Nathan Marr (Our dad), Rosy Marr, Gracie Marr, and Lizzie Marr.
The guitar is played by our dad, and all photography is by Rosy Marr. 🙂
Across the Lands
“You’re the Word of God the Father
From before the world began.
Ev’ry star and ev’ry planet
Has been fashioned by Your hand.
All creation holds together
By the power of Your voice.
Let the skies declare Your glory;
Let the land and seas rejoice!
You’re the Author of creation;
You’re the Lord of ev’ry man;
And Your cry of love rings out across the lands.
Yet You left the gaze of angels,
Came to seek and save the lost,
And exchanged the joy of heaven
For the anguish of a cross.
With a prayer, You fed the hungry;
With a word You calmed the sea;
Yet how silently You suffered
That the guilty may go free!
With a shout, You rose victorious,
Wresting vict’ry from the grave,
And ascended into heaven,
Leading captives in Your way.
Now You stand before the Father,
Interceding for Your own;
From each tribe and tongue and nation,
You are leading sinners home!”
