We Have Decided

This is another revised song. I revised the words to give it a corporate confession, a confession that as a body we have a choice, a decision, to gather together with Him as Head, to follow Jesus.

Thought you might like this great youtube video that gives this song a wonderful joyful feel, which should characterize I think more of what following Jesus should look like by His people. Following Jesus was never meant to be a burden but a life lived together in joy and peace and grace no matter what the world brings into our lives. Yes, in this world we will have trouble, but Jesus has overcome the world, we live in that rest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sVvUHHRrzA.

This song is originally by a Garo Christian (a tribe in the North-Eastern part of India) probably during the early part of Christianity of the tribe (late 1800AD).

We Have Decided

(to the tune of “I Have Decided”)

We have decided, to follow Jesus.
We have decided, to follow Jesus.
We have decided, to follow Jesus.
No turning back, no turning back.

Though none go with us, we still will follow.
Though none go with us, we still will follow.
Though none go with us, we still will follow.
No turning back, no turning back.

Our cross we’ll carry, ‘til we see Jesus.
Our cross we’ll carry, ‘til we see Jesus.
Our cross we’ll carry, ‘til we see Jesus.
No turning back, no turning back.
