City of God

We have been so blessed by the music ministry of the Agape International Choir. We’re big fans! This is one of our favorite songs. As you listen, open up your heart to the reality of Christ within you. You are the City of God. Partial lyrics below.

I’ve been concerned too long
with what was going wrong
What would not move
what would not turn
There is a way for sure
In what I have in God
I am now prepared to let go
To go to the city

The serious city of God
Receive me
I was standing before a wall
That had shut out the light
But your love o God
It restored my sight
Hallelujah
Heaven’s at hand
I can believe in myself again
Hallelujah
I’m in the city
Amen

?
When God’s the only plan
No greater joy have I
I was standing before a wall
That wasn’t there at all
I am now prepared to fly
And fly to the city

The serious of god
Receive me
I was standing before a wall
That had shut out the light
But your love oh God
Restored my sight
Hallelujah
Heaven’s at hand
I can believe in myself again
Hallelujah
Amen

God just opened up my heart one day to the city here in me
I had to let go of the way I thought and the way I used to be
So I prayed to love and I prayed to see the city shining everywhere
and I let God lift me up far beyond the toil and despair
God is my present help even in my time of need
God has His plan for you even when you don’t believe

Right now open up your eyes
Right now open up
I know you can realize
Right now open up and come to the city

The serious city of god
Receive me
I was standing before a wall
That had shut out the light
but your love o god – it restored my sight
Hallelujah
Heaven’s at hand
I can believe in myself again
Hallelujah
Amen
