Another song that I love is from Hillsong, I have a lot of those just so you know…it’s from their Beautiful Exchange album. The One Who Saves.
The chorus is my favorite honestly. When I’m out at night on campus, I sometimes go for a walk just because I can, and I love playing this song.
We have found our hope
We have found our peace
We have found our rest
In the One who Loves
He will light the way
He will lead us home
As we offer all
To the One who saves us
Jesus is our hope, peace, rest, and all things. There are many, many things that can bring us hope, peace, and rest. But only One can provide permanent hope, peace, and rest.
Plus I love the way that the chorus sounds musically.
But regardless, “He will light the way, He will lead us home” leads me to picturing some sort of fantastical journey in a world full of dangers, and in reality that’s what this is for us who are Christ-followers. We are on a fantastical journey, and the world is indeed fraught with dangers. Or rather things that used to be just fine, but are now dangerous until we are on the right side of things again. Once we are a Christ-follower, things that used to be dangerous aren’t necessarily as dangerous anymore.
His Love is unceasing and incredible. I don’t know that I can describe it other than that. Just rest in the fact that He is Rest, and He is the One who saves us when we call.
