Sons and Daughters lyrics and chords. “Favour as the rising sun, shine upon us, sons and daughters of Your house, one with Jesus“.
Sons and daughters is an upbeat song that I sing to the Lord affirming my position as a son and daughter of Abba God.
The song title reminds me of the olive tree and its young. They grow up around the parent tree like the picture above. It is an image of fruitfulness and togetherness.
I used to laugh when Pastor Joseph Prince said that God has no grandchildren. Jokes aside, it is the truth. God has no grandchildren. We are not Christians because our parents are Christians. We are Christians because we made a personal decision to believe in Jesus.
The two Bible verses below confirm God’s promises to make us sons when we believe in His name.
12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name: 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.John 1:12-13 WEB
3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as children. 6 And because you are children, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba,[a] Father!”Galatians 4:3-6 WEB
What happens when we become sons of God? According to Galatians 4:3-6, we receive redemption from the law and the Holy Spirit.
Sons and Daughters Lyrics
Leaving all behind, my weight of shame Leaning on the One Who knows my name A new creation now, I'm never the same Rest upon my heart, Your weight of love By Your precious blood, I'm born again Sons and daughters now Together we reign (together we) Stand in the light of Your love Life forgiven Rise to the sound of Your call Hearts abandoned Jesus, the name above all The name above all Favour as the rising sun Shine upon us Sons and daughters of Your house One with Jesus Lift our eyes above this troubled world For our blessed hope is ever sure Soon and coming King, You'll take us away You'll take us away (2X)
