Hebrews 1:3a "He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature..."

Composed and played by Jesse Janzen, mastered in part by Ryan Jobson (soundcloud.com/syllix).

Thank you for your patience friends, it's been a while, but I am rightly excited to give you the first complete track of this project. Please tell a friend if it hits you.


Light so bright that it blinds
Pull the scales from my eyes and let your face shine
down on me.

Yes, Lord!
At last I have found one to whom I can
Whole heartedly give this name, Oh my God.
All was bleak, but your light has brought me hope.
So let these eyes never close.

I am not my own, this is not my home.
I was bought for the greatest price.
I maintain the right to behold the sight of a world
Unequivocally healed.
Not my own: bought by grace.
Lord, I'm yours.
