The Sons and Daughters lyrics are written by the New Creation Worship team. “Favour as the rising sun, shine upon us, sons and daughters of Your house, one with Jesus”.
The song title reminds me of the olive tree and its young. They grow up around the parent tree like the picture above. It is an image of fruitfulness and togetherness.
I used to laugh when Pastor Joseph Prince said that God has no grandchildren. Jokes aside, it is the truth. God has no grandchildren. We are not Christians because our parents are Christians. We are Christians because we made a personal decision to believe in Jesus.
The two Bible verses below confirm God’s promises to make us sons when we believe in His name.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.John 1:12-13
Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.Galatians 4:3-6
What happens when we become sons of God? According to Galatians 4:3-6, we receive redemption from the law and the Holy Spirit.
Sons and Daughters Lyrics
Sons and daughters is an upbeat song that we sing to the Lord affirming our positions as sons and daughters of Abba God.
Sing, dance, and remember the blessings we received because of our unity with Jesus.
Leaving all behind, my weight of shame Leaning on the One Who knows my name A new creation now, I'm never the same Rest upon my heart, Your weight of love By Your precious blood, I'm born again Sons and daughters now Together we reign (together we) Stand in the light of Your love Life
forgivenRise to the sound of Your call Hearts abandoned Jesus, the name above all The name above all Favour as the rising sun Shine upon us Sons and daughters of Your house One with Jesus Lift our eyes above this troubled world For our blessed hope is ever sure Soon and coming King, You'll take us away You'll take us away (2X)
