As We Worship You

We have gathered in this Holy Place,
And bow in reverence before Your Face;
We'd drop the weight of daily care,
So our spirits may rise on the wings of prayer
As we worship You.

We lift our hearts in adoring praise,
For Your Mighty Power and Wonderful ways,
We thank you for all Your goodness to man
And for Redemption's Glorious Plan
As we worship You.

We ask You to search each penitent heart
And show us the sins from which we should part.
We confess our need of Your Saving Grace;
May Jesus' Blood all our guilt erase
As we worship You.

Descend, O God, in Anointing Power,
May Your Spirit fill us in this hour;
Then send us out with strength anew
To witness, serve and live for You,
Because we worshipped You.
