Suggested Tune ST.DENIO (11 11.11 11)

•  The Word you have whispered to me in the night
has kindled a heart-flame, it burns hot and bright,
a fire in my bones that I cannot restrain;
I'll shout it from rooftops in full light of day.


•  I'll shout of the death that my Lord died to sin,
and how we can share in the victory He wins:
if we died with Christ we will live on with Him!
I'll proclaim His life with each song that I sing!


•  Alive to my God I now live by His grace,
set free to choose freely to be called God's slave.
Whatever I give to the One who gave all,
the token would ever be vastly too small.


•  I would gladly lose all that this world can take,
possessions and fam'ly, I'd give for your sake.
No, I will not fear, though dark dangers surround,
for if here I lose life, in you it is found.


•  Oh, how we rejoice in the value we have -
for you to snatch us from the mouth of the grave!
You know every sparrow, but we are worth more:
Send us to add people to your treasure store.
