Hallelujah Jesus Christ is Lord, August 9, 2009
Words and Music by Leah Van Maaren

Written for the 50th Anniversary Celebration
at Cedar Hills Community Church, Cedar Rapids, Iowa



Let this be a day to mark the workings of our Lord
and the saints who boldly went before to cultivate the sod,
the dream and vision of the few who dared to step in faith
and lay a cornerstone of hope, to trust Him and obey.
How far we've come since faith took hold and led us to this day
with Jesus as the Cornerstone--a Great Foundation laid.

Hallelujah, hallelujah! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is Lord!

Through mountains high and valleys low, so steadfast You remain,
You lead us forward in the call to shine Your light to man.
What privilege to labor with our God in one accord
till every people, tribe, and tongue declare You as their Lord!

Hallelujah, hallelujah! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is Lord!

For many years that are to come, may this desire ring true:
that all we hope and strive to be is firmly built in You.
May You be our Guide, our Hope, and Friend,
complete what You've begun
as we join the Spirit and the Bride singing,
"Come, Lord Jesus, come!"

Hallelujah, hallelujah! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is Lord!

Let us leave a legacy for every generation
and faith that stirs each child's heart to sing this declaration.
Sing this declaration:

Hallelujah, hallelujah! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is Lord!
Hallelujah, hallelujah! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ is Lord!
Jesus Christ is Lord! Jesus Christ is Lord!
Amen. Amen.
