Orphans


These are the words to a song we are currently doing at church. I think they are so powerful, and have spoken to me in such a mighty way. I wanted to share them with you... some of you may know them, some may not. I pray that they will bless you as they have blessed me.


Orphans of God
Who here among us has not been broken
Who here among us is without guilt or pain
So oft’ abandoned by our transgressions
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

Come ye unwanted and find affection
Come all ye weary, come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy, you are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

O blessed Father, look down upon us
We are Your children, we need Your love
We run before
Your throne of mercy
And seek your face to rise above

Avalon Lyrics

Happy Sunday and
Much Love,

That's beautiful. Are you a singer? Are you doing this in choir? I'm a choir director and would love the composer and publisher.

Hi Christine!!
Words and music to "Orphans of God" are by Twila LaBar and Joel Lindsey. The song is actually in our Christmas musical book "Everything Glorious"... a praise and worship Christmas arranged by Travis Cottrell.
Yes, I do sing... I am a soloist at our church, praise team, adult ensemble, etc... Wanted to major in music in college, but mama and daddy vetoed that.... they were paying, so I am a nurse! I sang with a group in college too that traveled... lots of fun. SO COOL that you are the choir director!! Hope you can find the song. You can email me if you need further info... andynjenn13ATyahooDOTcom.
Blessings!

Oh, that is such a beautiful song. We recently had a fundraiser for the homeless ministry in our church, and someone sang it. Thanks for reminding me about it.
