Why we Worship

PSALM 47

Clap your hands, all peoples!
  Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
  a great king over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us,
  and nations under our feet.
He chose our heritage for us,
  the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

God has gone up with a shout,
  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
  Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
  sing praises with a psalm!

Why Sing?

God reigns over the nations;
  God sits on his holy throne.
The princes of the peoples gather
  as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
  he is highly exalted!

Lyrics | Description

"Abba Father" we approach you
In our Savior's precious name
We your children here assembled
Now your promised blessing claim
From our sins His blood has washed us
Now through Him our souls draw nigh
And your Spirit too has taught us
"Abba Father" thus to cry

Once as prodigals we wandered
In our folly far from you
But your grace and mercy reaching
Has redeemed us through and through
You have welcomed us as children
Kissed us with a Father's love
Spread the festive board and called us
Soon to dwell with you above

Clothed in garments of salvation
At this feast we take our place
We rejoice with you rejoicing
In the riches of your grace
"Come and dine," we hear you saying
As we view this table spread
"I have found my once lost children
Now they live who once were dead!"

"Abba Father" all adore you
Joy resounds in heav'n above
While in us they learn the wonders
Of your wisdom, grace and love
Soon before your throne assembled
All your children will proclaim
"Glory everlasting glory
Be to God and to the Lamb!"
