Verse 1
Come and stand before your maker
Full of wonder, full of fear
Come behold his power and glory
Yet with confidence draw near
For the one who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love

Chorus 1
Come and lift your hands and raise your voice
He is worthy of all praise
Sing the mercies of your king
And with trembling, rejoice

Verse 2
We are children of the promise
The belovèd of the Lord
Won with everlasting kindness
Bought with sacrificial blood
Bringing reconciliation
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a father
Who will never let them go

Verse 3
All our sickness, all our sorrows
Jesus carried up the hill
He has walked this path before us
He is walking with us still
Turning tragedy to triumph
Turning agony to praise
There is blessing in the battle
So take heart and stand amazed

Chorus 2
When you cry to him, he hears your voice
He will wipe away your tears
In the midst of suffering
He will help you sing

  Sample Introduction

We are precious to Jesus. He hears our voice when we cry out in sorrow and gives us a voice to keep singing when life is hard. And we know we are precious because Jesus bought us with his sacrificial blood. So let’s use this song to rejoice!
