Ephesians (The Mystery of the Lord)

A couple of days ago, I was reading the Bible in search of inspiration for a song; asking God to direct me to something he'd like me to learn. My eyes fell upon Paul's Letter to the Ephesians. I actually took the time to read the entire book to see if any phrases or passages popped out, but what struck me was the core message of the book: The Mystery that God shared with all of us; that is, His very Word makes us all one, One Body in Christ. This song revolves around that mystery. 

Lyrics are below. If you'd like the chart, please let me know.

Ephesians (The Mystery of the Lord)

Verse 1
We are raised by the grace of the Father
We are raised by the peace of Jesus Christ
And freed by the Lord
Freed in the Lord
Free with the Lord

Verse 2
We are stamped with the Seal of the Spirit
We are stamped with the light of Jesus Christ
And sealed by His grace
Sealed in His grace
Sealed with the Lord

CHORUS
We live as One Body in Christ
God's gift of faith, His sacrifice
And with His Word we all are free
To live His Love,
To live His Love
His mystery

Verse 3 
We are joined through the Word of the Father
We are joined through the Word of Jesus Christ
We're one by the Lord
One in the Lord
One with the Lord

Verse 4
Resurrected in the Holy Spirit
Resurrected in the Love of Jesus Christ
Raised by the Lord
Raised in the Lord
Raised with the Lord

FINAL CHORUS
We live as One Body in Christ
God's gift of faith, His sacrifice
And with His Word we all are free
To live His Love,
We live as One Body in Christ
God's gift of faith, His sacrifice
And with His Word we all are free
To live His Love,
To live His Love
His mystery

My Songs...

Richard,

I will be posting more in the near future. I'm working on a new project - of which Ephesians is part - that is a collection of songs based on scripture. But more pointedly, they're hymns meant to be played at Mass so they'll all be singable. I really don't want to go the pop music route with these.

Thanks!

Brendan
