We taught this song last week in our church. People seemed to really grab a hold of it and proclaim. We are doing it again this Sunday as a congregational song.
A few months ago, Brent Thomas brought the idea, melody, and verse/chorus to this song over to my house. Together, we rejoiced in the life and energy that God has brought to our church, and wrote this song as a response. The basis for the song is that as we become a worshiping church, we want to be mindful of the call that God has placed on our lives; To GO where He sends us, letting his love, mercy, and justice rule through us...the Church!
The song has a lot of energy. Our band did a great job putting it together, and we are hoping this song is one that the worshipers at Harvest can take ownership of, and proclaim in faith together! Here's an acoustic version...Enjoy:)
We're bowing down, You lift us up
This faithfulness overflows our cup
You are the Lord, Of all our lives
We give our all to You Christ
We sing, with fervent hearts of praise
To the one who raised us all.
And we shout, the song of the redeemed
Our lives will answer Your call
We long for You, You quench our thirst
This Holy Fount, brings life to the cursed
We celebrate! Your Holy Name!
Your Saving power we proclaim
Where You send us we will go
Let Your love and mercy show
May Your justice conquer through the church
