Venia

BandChristianMetal

Venia is a metal/hardcore Christian band that strongly believe in the beliefs of the Lord, and share the Gospel with everyone that see them. They won't push their beliefs on nonbelievers, but if anyone wants to talk to them about their beliefs, they are more than happy to talk about them.

Biography

Venia is centered around two overarching goals. First, to share God's Word and spread the Gospel to as many people as possible. Venia strives to accomplish this goal through words and actions both on the stage and off of it, ultimately culminating as the worship of God in every aspect of our lives here on earth. Secondly, to reach a more mature level of musicianship, and friendship. Striving to be better than all of the members' former projects, Venia hopes to bring a strong combination of passion, emotion, and talent to the stage. Combining many different aspects of music from harsh breakdowns to catchy melodic sections, and all that lies between, the band hopes to catch people's attention with their recent EP release.

Lyrics

Grace

Written By: Venia

O God
I pray that you shine through me
Like the glorious star
That you really are
O God
I pray that you shine through me
Like the glorious star
That you really are
O God
I pray that you shine through me
Like the glorious star
That you really are

Now I am begging
For your mercy
God save me from this sin
Three days and nights
You lay in waiting
To shock the world
It took less time
For me to ruin my name
And tarnish this gift
You’ve given me

Oh what joy it is for those
Whose disobedience is forgiven
Whose sins are put out of sight
Yes what joy for those
Whose record the Lord
Has cleared of sin
Has cleared of sin
Who by their wickedness
Prevent the truth from being known
Are punished
While the righteous
Will live by faith
While the righteous
Will live by faith
While the righteous
Will live by faith
While the righteous
Will live by faith

Oh what joy it is for those
Whose disobedience is forgiven
Whose sins are put out of sight
Yes what joy it is for those
Whose record the Lord
Has cleared of sin
Has cleared of sin
For the wages of sin is death
But the free gift of God
Is eternal life
For nothing in all creation
Will ever be able to
For the wages of sin is death
But the free gift of God
Is eternal life
For nothing in all creation
Will ever be able to
Separate us from the love of God

Brothers and sisters
Hear my plea
The end is near
And the time to repent is nigh

For I have searched
Through the scriptures
And I have seen the signs
When the comet fills the sky
Then you and I must die
From the eternal sea
He rises
Creating armies on either shore
Turning man against his brother
Till man exists no more

When the four come
This will all be done
When the four come
We will all be one

I will always stand
By your side
I will always stand
By your side
I will always stand
By your side
I will always stand
By your side
In this time of turmoil

Brothers stand strong
For pain is only temporary
And grace is everlasting
Brothers stand strong
For pain is only temporary
And grace is everlasting
Brothers stand strong
For pain is only temporary
And grace is
And grace is everlasting

Anyone with ears to hear
Should listen and understand
If you are destined to be a prisoner
Then you will be taken to prison
And if you are destined to die by the sword
Then you will die by the sword
I don’t think you heard me
If you are destined to be a prisoner
Then you will be taken to prison
And if you are destined to die by the sword
Then you will die by the sword
One last time if you refuse to hear
Listen and understand
If you are destined to be a prisoner
Then you will be taken to prison
And if you are destined to die by the sword
Then you will die by the sword

I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
I will stand by your side
For you have always been by mine

Surrender! Surrender!

Just beyond the horizon
An army met my pride
Shot to pieces and trampled
Now it lies

You’ve pursued my kind
For all time
Since the beginning
We have been running
From your wisdom
And your grace
From your wisdom
And your grace

Just past those hills
My lust was destroyed
Swallowed by sand
Never to be seen again
Never by any mortal man
My sins be laid to rest
By your eternal blood

You’ve pursued my kind
For all time
Since the beginning
We have been running

Just past these hills
And over the horizon
An army met my pride
Just past these hills
And over the horizon
An army met my pride
Another weary soul saved
From this heavy burden
A fool from the beginning
You’ve pursued my kind forever
Another weary soul saved
From this heavy burden
A fool from the beginning
You’ve pursued my kind forever

O divine master
Grant that I may not
So much seek to be consoled
As to console
For it’s not so much to be loved
As to love
And it’s not so much to be understood
As to understand
For it is in pardoning
That we are pardoned
And it is in dying
That we awake into eternal life
O divine master
So now I come happier
That I’ve ever been
And I stretch my arms
Out to the sky

O divine master
Grant that I may not
So much seek to be consoled
As to console
For it’s not so much to be loved
As to love
And it’s not so much to be understood
As to understand
For it is in pardoning
That we are pardoned
And it is in dying
That we awake into eternal life
O divine master
So now I come happier
That I’ve ever been
And I stretch my arms
Out to the sky

O divine master
Grant that I may not
So much seek to be consoled
As to console
For it’s not so much to be loved
As to love
And it’s not so much to be understood
As to understand
For it is in pardoning
That we are pardoned
And it is in dying
That we awake into eternal life
O divine master
So now I come happier
That I’ve ever been
And I stretch my arms
Out to the sky

Here I come to bow down
Here I come to worship
O divine master
O divine master
Heear my plea
Here I come to plea
Here I come to bow down
O divine master
Here I come to say
That you’re my God
