FIRST IN POURING OUT YOUR LOVE UPON US - BEFORE WE ASKED
First in showing that a king could save us
Not holding back
You are first in all the praise of heaven
First where people know that they're forgiven

Jesus! - the first to rise again
Jesus - the one who holds all things together;
Together!
Jesus - we lift our praise to You
Jesus - we say that you are King forever,
Forever!
The one and only, first and last Jesus!

First in speaking light into the darkness - creation wakes
First in breathing life into our weakness - your image placed
You are first and all creations longings
Will one day erupt in joyful song

First in showing radical redemption to the lost and least
First in bringing hope and transformation to the poor and weak
First to call us to a way of dying
That in you becomes a life worth living
