Tears from the Saints

Just got back from hanging with our Student Pastor, Nathan Kocurek. He and I are both bachelors for a few days since our families are going to be away while we go on a mission trip with our students. Please remember to pray for us as we serve in south Texas next week. I might not be able to blog next week if we have no computer.

I was on YouTube just now and remembered that I have this little video I made when at the Life Church for our West Valley Mobile Food Bank. I was asked to put together a video montage for a worship service highlighting the ministry. I immediately thought of the powerful song "Tears from the Saints" by Leeland. You're missing out if you've not heard this young Christian band. Below are the lyrics and the video I put together using the song.

Tears from the Saints

There are many prodigal sons
On our city streets they run
Searching for shelter
There are homes broken down
People’s hopes have fallen to the ground
From failures

This is an emergency!

There are tears from the saints
For the lost and unsaved
We’re crying for them come back home
We’re crying for them come back home
And all your children will stretch out their hands
And pick up the crippled man
Father, we will lead them home
Father, we will lead them home

There are schools full of hatred
Even churches have forsaken
Love and mercy
May we see this generation
In its state of desperation
For Your glory

This is an emergency!

There are tears from the saints
For the lost and unsaved
We’re crying for them come back home
We’re crying for them come back home
And all your children will stretch out their hands
And pick up the crippled man
Father, we will lead them home
Father, we will lead them home

Sinner, reach out your hands!
Children, in Christ you stand!
Sinner, reach out your hands!
Children, in Christ you stand!

There are tears from the saints
For the lost and unsaved
We’re crying for them come back home
We’re crying for them come back home
And all Your children will stretch out their hands
And pick up the crippled man
Father, we will lead them home
Father, we will lead them home
