O tender soul

"Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" (Eph 5:19)

O tender soul, lift up your eyes
To see the One who paid the sacrifice
"It is finished!" His final cry
Ris'n, ascended, now at the Father's side

O tender soul, open your ears
Our Advocate bids us come and draw near
No condemnation - we've been set free!
He has promised He'll strengthen the weak

The Way is open, through Christ draw near
Our sins forgiven, no need to fear
The very throne room of heav'n awaits
Lead us, Spirit, that we might find mercy and grace!

O tender soul, hold out your hands
He will raise and lift us up so we can stand
In Christ Jesus we have victory!
May He open our eyes so we can see

O tender soul, come, seek His face
With confidence approach the throne of grace
His intercession will never cease
May this knowledge fill our hearts with peace.
