Alleluia for the Acts: By Andrea Hoxie

ALLELUIA FOR THE ACTS 

The Spirit came and fell on men

And then He stayed to dwell in them 

The church was born with so much great excitement so many heard and they believed 

But there was one who could not  conceive 

How Christ could be Messiah, alleluia

 

He put to death those of the way 

Created martyrs in that fray

they followed Christ's example and sacrificed

But then one day Saul fell on earth

And he was raised with a new birth

He gave his life to Christ, oh alleluia

 

How many are there still to go

Who for themselves they do not know

The wondrous love of Christ in their hearts

take heed my brothers, my sisters how

The work we must continue now

To spread the saving good news, alleluia 

 

Love and care are our sacred vow

we call each other family now

the family of God in this place

the need you have is ours to fill

When you're all done and lacking still

We'll do our part to help you, alleluia 

 

The church goes on in us today

A beacon light to shine the way

For those who have no Savior to trust in

We speak of abundant, saving grace

Reserved for all the human race

we want each one to know Him, alleluia

 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts

We bring our tithes and offerings to He

who supplies our every need 

Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Oh praise Him

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, amen.
