It’s no coincidence that there was singing and dancing at the feast celebrating the son’s return. There is something about music that stirs the human soul. Over the past few years, one of our favorite songs as a community has been Boldly I Approach (The Art of Celebration) by Rend Collective. It’s a song that invites us to the freedom of the Father and gives us reason for celebration. The lyrics are below. Take some time today and read through them slowly… and then, take some time to celebrate the freedom you have in Christ.

“Boldly I Approach (The Art Of Celebration)”

By grace alone somehow I stand
Where even angels fear to tread
Invited by redeeming love
Before the throne of God above
He pulls me close with nail-scarred hands
Into His everlasting arms

When condemnation grips my heart
And Satan tempts me to despair
I hear the voice that scatters fear
The Great I Am the Lord is here
Oh praise the One who fights for me
And shields my soul eternally

Boldly I approach Your throne
Blameless now I’m running home
By Your blood I come
Welcomed as Your own
Into the arms of majesty

Behold the bright and risen Son
More beauty than this world has known
I’m face to face with Love Himself
His perfect spotless righteousness
A thousand years, a thousand tongues
Are not enough to sing His praise

Boldly I approach Your throne
Blameless now I’m running home
By Your blood I come
Welcomed as Your own
Into the arms of majesty

This is the art of celebration
Knowing we’re free from condemnation
Oh praise the One, praise the One
Who made an end to all my sin

Boldly I approach Your throne
Blameless now I’m running home
By Your blood I come
Welcomed as Your own
Into the arms of majesty
