O, what a happy people, forgiven by the Lord.
Their joy is a holy steeple. Their need was not ignored.
Who can take them from His hand? It is pure and strong.
Kept by the word of the Son of Man. It is He where they belong.
O, what a happy people. They have learned their purpose.
To rightly worship they are needful. New life below the surface.
Who can claim this as their need, and where they're sorely broken?
It's for this the Son would bleed. To do as He had spoken.
To be this happy be made holy, the act you cannot work.
Declare Jesus as your Lord solely. This plea He will not shirk.
Out is where you won't be cast. You'll see you've been included.
To Him you're first though you're last. Your sins are not imputed.
A gift that holds many others, that you may love and exhort.
To thrive by blessing sisters and brothers in the likeness of this Lord.
Learn of joy in the trial as Jesus gave example.
Learn He's there all the while, His goodness you have sampled.
May I know that you're this happy. A joy in the light and dark.
Beyond last breath it's everlasting. Your life then really starts.
Note: This was inspired first by the declaration my Pastor, Skip Heitzig, made last night (Wed. 11-17-2010), where he said, something to the effect of
"O, what a happy people, when they are forgiven by the Lord."
From there I found myself writing on my iPod as he spoke, and from what I saw in service yesterday with everyone enjoying worship and being there for one another.
The last two lines I added once I got home, needing to make a statement summarizing the whole thing.
