Bass - Jimmy Whitman

Drums - James Munk

Percussion - Robert Gray

 

From the throne of God and from the Lamb the river flows.

Life redeeming, ever healing, age to age it goes.

No more sun, the Holy One - our light that ever shines.

Crystal clear, the river here, will swell our hearts to join the cry!

 

Awake, O sleeper, rise to life, and Christ will give you light!

Lift your head - behold the river.

He mounts his throne to shouts of praise; be opened heaven's gates.

Enter in, O King of Glory!

 

"Come!" the Spirit calls, and with the bride the Spirit cries:

"Souls that thirst can drink their fill of water without price.

Blest are those who wash their robes to gain the tree of life.

Face to face with endless grace, lift up your hearts to hear the cry!"

 

Awake, O sleeper, rise to life, and Christ will give you light!

Lift your head - behold the river.

He mounts his throne to shouts of praise; be opened heaven's gates.

Enter in, O King of Glory!

 

O King of Glory!

2. While We Still Breathe CHORDS

Words and Music by Daniel Knaggs

 

Vocal, Guitar - Daniel Knaggs

Bass - Brian LaLonde

Congas - James Munk

Percussion - Robert Gray

 

As a father has compassion on his children,

So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.

For he knows how we are formed, he remembers we are dust.

As for man, his days are like the grass.

Like the flower of the field he flourishes; the wind blows and removes it from its place.

But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him!

 

Come let us praise, come let us raise our hands to the king.

Come and adore Jesus our Lord, yet while we still breathe;

Let us proclaim his wonderful name, let our voices rise.

Let us magnify our Lord Jesus Christ!

 

What is man that you are mindful of him?

For what is our life, but a mist that appears for a while and then vanishes?

We are dust and to dust we shall return.

Yet how great is the love the Lord has lavished on us;

That we should be called children of God?

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness

And brought us into the kingdom of his son!

 

Come let us praise, come let us raise our hands to the king.

Come and adore Jesus our Lord, yet while we still breathe;

Let us proclaim his wonderful name, let our voices rise.

Let us magnify our Lord Jesus Christ!

Join with us, and let us go to his dwelling place,

The gates of heaven resound within

For we were made for this glorious grace!

 

Every heart cries holy, every knee bends low.

Always steadfast, ever faithful, how your love endures!

Face to face with glory that no eye has seen.

We become like him whom we behold;

Beholding you!

 

We sing to you, our lives surrendered as offerings,

Our faith in you as the gift we bring,

The veil is lifted before your throne.

We come to you, conformed to you in your lowliness,

Transformed by you in your holiness.

We rise from glory to glory, Lord!

 

Every heart cries holy, every knee bends low.

Always steadfast, ever faithful, how your love endures!

I the Lord have called you for the victory of justice.

To bring freedom for the captives, to open the eyes of the blind,

And to release the ones in darkness; release the ones in night.

 

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth.

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth.

 

Let the sea and thunder, and the villages and coastlands

Give glory to the Lord, praise him with one accord from the mountains.

He will stir up as a warrior his might against the foe

He will make the mountains level, he will make the broken whole.

 

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth.

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth.

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth.

His children come from far away.

Overcome with gladness, by streams of living water

The ransomed of the Lord will return to him.

Precious in your eyes, made whole for you.

Behold the eyes of the Lord search the face of the earth

To find hearts that are given, seeking souls to make pure.

To enflame this world's darkness, to warm cold hearts with grace.

Am I here, Lord, for such a time, for such a place?

 

Here is my life, Lord: heart, mind and body.

My soul's surrender, take it for your own.

And you will lead, I know, where only love can go.

Here is my life, O Lord, my life for you.

 

There is a love stronger than death, passion deeper than this life

In the heart's purest longing lies the pearl of great price.

One love all loves surpassing, true surrender the cost.

Am I here, Lord, to bear this love and share its cross?

 

Here is my life, Lord: heart, mind and body.

My soul's surrender, take it for your own.

And you will lead, I know, where only love can go.

Here is my life, O Lord, my life for you.

Calling out to the heavens, we will rise and lift up a battle cry.

Fighting for the glory of his name.

In his truth is our victory, our purpose and our way.

A mighty fortress stands before us.

Behold our shield - look upon the face of the anointed one,

Our Lord, king and conqueror leads us on.

 

He our strength and our portion lifted high over the enemy.

Strong we stand with each other, both sister and brother

Giving him thanks and praise.

Princely sons and royal daughters, heirs of Christ the victor king;

Born again of spirit and water, lift your voice and let us sing.

May our worship rise like incense, even to the father's throne:

"Alleluia, alleluia!  Glorious and mighty is the Lord!

Everlasting his dominion, and his love endures forevermore!"

 

Round his throne are angels gathering; saints and prophets all bowed down.

Heaven's courts are filled with their chanting, shaking with the mighty sound.

Let us lift our voices higher, and we'll join our song to theirs:

"Alleluia, alleluia!  Glorious and mighty is the Lord!

Everlasting his dominion, and his love endures forevermore!"

 

Men of every tribe and nation; men of high or humble birth

All bow down in glad adoration to the Lord of all the earth.

For he comes to rule the peoples in his righteousness and truth.

"Alleluia, alleluia!  Glorious and mighty is the Lord!

Everlasting his dominion, and his love endures forevermore!"

For he comes, he comes in glory; and in glory he shall reign!

 

Lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai!

(Alleluia, alleluia!  Alleluia, praise the Lord!)         x4
