Overture
by Matthew Clark

Gather, all you who will
Hear of the God
Slain for his children's sin.
Come, the story recall,
All he has done
To bring his family home.

The overflowing holy heart
Of God begat a world of good
Adam's treason echoes still
And lays the children in the ground
Waves of sin rose high and wide,
Noah listened through the noise
A voice like many waters surged
Up through death will come new birth

Gather, all you who will
Hear of the God
Slain for his children's sin.
Come, the story recall,
All he has done
To bring his family home.

Abram held the promise close,
Raised the blade above his head
A son will surely give his life;
Know the promise breaks the knife
By now Egypt like a grave,
Held a captive people slaves
Moses through the waters walked
And God made Israel his own

Gather, all you who will
Hear of the God
Slain for his children's sin.
Come, the story recall,
All he has done
To bring his family home.

Israel a enthroned a son,
David sang I'm just a man
The only King who'll win this war
Is crowned above the cherubim
The virgin mother out of breath,
Birthed the Word who dwelt in flesh
Mercy showed the world a face,
Jesus punished in our place

Let His song fill the skies,
Eden's reprise:
God and man home again.
Gather, all you who will
Hear of the God
Slain for his children's sin.
Come, the story recall,
All he has done
To bring his family home.
