We Come Before You


 You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. ~Psalm 18:28

We come before You

In wonder and worship

Expectant in every sense

For You are about

To do great things

We stand, awaiting Your Word

Spoken, reveals

The light, darkness

Flees before Your presence

Naught can stand

Against the power

Of almighty love

Come, Lord Jesus,

Restore and heal

Your city on the hill.

Amen!

  4. OH YES! Amen! Praise the Lord! We stand in readiness, awaiting His command, and watching for His entrance back into our world to catch us all away...and then the real LIGHT will be shining in the darkness for ALL the world to see. Praying many will come to His light now before it is too late for them.

  9. I add my prayer to others here and elsewhere: May God indeed restore and heal our land, that we might be the city on a hill we once were, whose trust is in God as it says on our coins.
