The Story of Our God

Verse 1
In the beginning God made the heav’n and earth,
Formed the night and day, sky and sea gave birth,
Set apart dry land filled with beast and shrub
To make a home for the ones He would love

Refrain 1
Then the LORD God took from the dust mankind
In His holy image wrought.
It was very good for this blessed life
Told the story of our God.

Verse 2
Into this land so fair came the serpent’s ruse,
And we chose ourselves over God’s great truth.
We exchanged our home for the wilderness:
Our lives enslaved unto bitter death.

Refrain 2
Still the LORD pursued through the flame and cloud,
By His temple and His law.
He did not undo us despite our doubt
In the story of our God.

Verse 3
Then in our blackest night, fraught with fear and woe,
Our forgetful eyes glimpsed the One foretold.
He was God with us, clothed in flesh and blood
To show the way of God’s suffering love.

Refrain 3
We esteemed Him not, Love unrecognized,
And we killed Him on a cross.
Yet this twisted plot and this murdered Christ
Were the story of our God.

Verse 4
Unto the ground He fell as a seed is sown,
And He rose again sending forth His own
Through the miles and years, witness undeterred,
His story spread into all the earth.

Refrain 4
Now we join the Son in the Father’s praise
By His Spirit and His blood.
As He makes us one, we proclaim the way
To the story of our God.

Refrain 5
His return is soon; we shall see His face
And the fullness of His love.
All shall be renewed, evermore embracing
The story of our God.
So what is left to do but to take our place
In the story of our God.
