Flight

cover

In the context of this album, ‘Flight’ doesn’t indicate an effortless ascent on gentle winds to a cloudless sky; rather it’s a chronicle of the battle to trust the impossible, embrace the unreasonable, forgive the unforgivable, believe the unbelievable and – on wings singed by the fires of doubt – to seize a Promise too fragile for anything but faith to grasp.

TESTIFY
CCLI Song Number: 7124242
Verse 1
Testify don’t let the moment pass you by
If you believe as you proclaim
Tell the world in Jesus’ name
Testify

Testify remember all that Christ has done
How great the debt that He as paid
Tell the world don’t be afraid
To testify

Chorus 1
Testify testify
Ooh I believe Jesus died for me
I believe the Good News
Won’t you please let me
Share it with you

Verse 2
Testify as someone else once testified
They overcame their fear of you
And let the Father’s love shine through
They Testified

They testified and had they not
Where would you be
Just as lost and as confused
As the one who waits for you
To testify

Chorus 2
Testify testify
Ooh I believe Jesus died for me
I believe the Good News
Won’t you please let me
Share it with you
