One Day! September 26, 2007

One day when Heaven was filled with His praises,
One day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
Dwelt among men, my Example is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever;
One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected:
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever;
One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day they left Him alone in the garden,
One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;
Hope of the hopeless, my Savior is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever;
One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
Now is ascended, my Lord evermore!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever;
One day He’s coming—O glorious day!

My dad has a CD by Todd Agnew called “Better Questions”, on which this hymn, redone to a different tune, is a bonus track. My mom and I are currently adapting it with the goal of singing it in church. If you have never heard Todd Agnew’s songs, PLEASE listen to them! He has a way of singing Scripture that just moves you. His album “Reflection of Something Beautiful” has a song “My Jesus” that brings me to tears every time I hear it and is an amazing challenge.
The rest of that album is, of course, fantastic, and so is “Better Questions”. His style is eclectic, his voice is expressive, and his lyrics are unbeatable, especially since many of them come directly from the pages of Scripture.

    Have you chorded the song – or tabbed it yet. I could do it, but would love it if you’ve already done that.
    I just heard the song this morning on the radio and hope to do it in Church – congregationally sometime soon.
