Songs on Sunday ~ That Was Then, This is Now by Josh Wilson ~ 1/17/16

 
 
In the dark times, we think that is all there is.  The darkness makes us forget the good times.  But this doesn't have to be.  God is with us at all times and is protecting us and making provision for us.  We can remember the good times of the past and look forward to the good times to come.
 
You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now

 
We can say goodbye to the old us because we are bought by the blood of the Lamb.  What was lost is now found!  Rejoice!
 
 


That Was Then, This Is Now

Artist Name - Josh Wilson
Album - TBD


We used to hide from the light
We made friends with the night
We were headed the wrong way on a one way track
Going nowhere fast

We got used to the dark
We thought this is who we are
And we figured that we were just too far gone
But we were wrong

‘Cause love came running like a river
And we got washed in the water
Then He said you're forgiven
Your sins are gone

That was then, this is now
You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now


So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don’t have to go back
‘Cause that was then and this is now

We've been remade by grace
We've all got new names
And nothing we do could ever change
What He did that day

When love came running like a river
We got washed in the water
Then He said you’re forgiven
And you belong

That was then, this is now
You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now

So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don’t have to go back
‘Cause that was then

If we turn and confess every unrighteousness
He is faithful and just to forgive
Oh, so turn and confess every wrong and regret
And see what it means to live

That was then, this is now
You’re bought by the blood, saved by the Son the saints all sing about
That was lost, this is found
And it’s time to say goodbye to the old you now

So go ahead, put the past in the past
Box it up like an old photograph
You don’t have to go back
‘Cause that was then and this is now
‘Cause that was then and this is now

    "We've been remade by grace
    We've all got new names
    And nothing we do could ever change
    What He did that day"

  6. What a beautiful song! It is awesome to actually look at the lyrics to songs we hear on the radio, and really have the meaning sink in more. Thanks for sharing with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope you will join the link up again this week :)
