News Defying Expectation (Stenka Razin – 3 Verses) – Piano Ensemble

News Defying Expectation ~ Lyrics

News defying expectation,
Mystery compounds their fear.
Hear the bombshell exclamation:
“Grave is empty – He’s not there!”

Wrestling with this information,
In bereavement’s dark despair,
Searching for an explanation:
“Where’s His body – where, O where?”

Far beyond imagination,
More than boldest thought or prayer,
Cause for joyous celebration:
“Christ is risen! He is here!”

Mysterious God, Beyond My Comprehension (Mysterious God) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 5 verses

Mysterious God, beyond my comprehension,
deeper and wider than the wisest mind,
Stretching beyond conceivable dimension,
beyond the grasp of finite humankind.
Mysterious God, mysterious God
revealed in Jesus, God-man mystery.

No single being could express your nature
You are One God, yet show Yourself as Three.
I stand before You as a finite creature,
numbers lose meaning in Your mystery. Refrain

Humbled, I try to think of You as spatial,
You’re everywhere now simultaneously;
worthy of temples gloriously palatial,
yet spurning these to live in mystery. Refrain

You live outside of Time that so confines me,
I can’t imagine Your Eternity.
Past, present, future: these constructs define me,
Your timeless present is a mystery. Refrain

You are Almighty, infinite in power;
what You decide is an accomplished deed.
I struggle to be faithful for one hour,
Your faithful rule is one more mystery. Refrain
