Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

Here We Gather

Background

This is not only a worship song, it is a song about worship.  When we come together to worship, we gather in God's presence, where God pours out blessing and grace upon.  Worship is not just us coming together to praise -- it is about gathering in God's presence to receive mercy and blessing. 

God comes to us through the Word, and God comes to us at the table of the Lord, in the bread and wine.  Jesus is present to proclaim his grace, and to give us himself in the mystery of the Lord's Supper.  Here his power is present to bless his children.

 

Lyrics

Chorus
Here we gather by Your grace
You are present in this place
With the angels we sing praise
Holy Holy
Here we stand before Your throne
All Your blessings here we own
All Your mercies here made known
Holy Holy  

Verse 1
Open up my ears that I may hear my Shepherd’s voice
Send me Your Spirit Lord
That in Your Word I may rejoice
For Your Word sets me free
It is life and light for me
It is Your power in this hour
As You shower down Your grace and holy love.

Verse 2
Here Your body and Your blood
For me in bread and wine
Here You come to me
And make my heart Your holy shrine
In the cup, in the bread
I am healed and I am fed
Here is Your power in this hour
As You shower down Your grace and holy love
