Thy Name be raised on high this day,
In the presence of thy majesty, we bow and pray…
In Thee oh Lord our hearts unite,
In one accord to win the fight,
Against our heart’s own scar and blight,
You have unveiled sin’s disguise,
And opened up our sinful eyes.
We look to you on high oh Lord,
Toward our great unjust reward.
You are our God, our Father and Friend,
In you new wonders have no end.
No boundary to block Your praise from our heart,
Your Spirit flows forth to give life a new start.
In the Father and in the Son,
Our broken hearts have been made one.
One with the Father, and one with the Son,
Life in the body of Christ is full of wonders, glory and fun.
Our unity in Christ is a wonderful part,
Of which this life is only a start.
Each new day brings promise anew,
Of God’s paradise restored in you.
When darkness flees to find its cover,
Each new wonder you will soon discover.
Yes each new day so sunny and bright,
Reminds of His glory His power and might.
And even dark clouds rolling in with thunder
Remind of his wrath toward those who with evil hearts do plunder
If we put feet to our faith through the rest of our life,
God will grant us peace and an end to our strife.
Praise be to the Father and to the Son,
And praise to the Spirit who unites us as one.
His breath of life is fresh to our core.
Pour out your Spirit Lord, new life to restore,
Yes, pour out your Spirit Lord, please fill us more.
More of your wisdom, more of your grace,
More of your loving Holy Spirits embrace.
Blessed be the Lord God Almighty, how awesome is Thy story.
Let people everywhere on bended knee proclaim Thy wondrous glory.
