Anticipating — Lyrics and Discussion

Romans 8:22-27 speaks of all creation groaning for new life, and the spirit interceding through “wordless groans.” This verse struck me as I also read John 12:13 where the people laid down palm branches and cried out “Hosanna! (God saves!)” This holy expectation came together in the song “Anticipating,” which was written with Palm Sunday specifically in mind. It is a confession, that God’s joy is an eternal joy that has been brought to us by Jesus Christ.

How am I like those who anticipated God saving them? Can my heart be filled with jubilation at the coming of the King of Kings? Can I celebrate God’s salvation in any circumstance?

 

Anticipating
Spirit help us pray
Anticipating, anticipating
All creation waits for revelation, liberation

Verse 2
Spirit, help us pray
Anticipating, anticipating
our hearts are filled with praise
in celebration, expectation

Chorus
For in this hope, this hope, we are saved (we are saved)
For in this hope, this hope, we are savedĀ  (we are saved)
For in this hope, this hope, we are savedĀ  (we are saved)

Yes, you are the God, you are the God who saves
Yes you are the God, you are the God who saves
