Only in prayer and worship we draw near
Into the Holy Presence,
We stand before You, oh Lord
Filled with Holy knowledge
Your heart made known to us
All the goodness of Heaven revealed
By Your path of righteousness
Walked faithfully on Earth
You alone opened the door to life.
Your Holy Spirit has moved
The Breath of Life now within us
Unspeakable Gift from above
Settled as that dove within
Prayers with tears a simple offering
Sacrifice of praise with joy from our mouths
All that we have
All that will stand in eternity
Treasures from your hand, our God.
Who has known peace but your children
Who has tasted courage but those You have embraced,
Who has stood strong but those clothed with Your Spirit?
Songs of joy flow forth
Music of thanksgiving to our God
Words in the Spirit a river of gladness
Even in dances an offering of worship.
Eyes behold the Beauty
Ears hear all the secrets of Heaven
All beauty found in You
Every good seed
Every crumb of manna
The Bread of the Third Heaven
Wine of New Life we celebrate,
Triumph of our lives
In You and through You;
All a thank offering
To the praise of your Glory
And the honor of Your Holy Name.
