2007. Isaiah 64 & II Corinthians 4.


Oh that you’d rend the heavens and come down
That the mountains might quake
That the nations might tremble and shake
At your presence
From ancient days no eye has seen
And no ear has heard
A God like you who does awesome deeds
We need your presence

Show us your glory, and draw near to us
As we bow and worship you, send your presence (3x)

The face whose glory even Moses feared
The name they could not speak
Yahweh so holy, they could not draw near
To your presence
Now all your glory’s in the face of Christ
And he has made a way
Through our great priest and sacrifice
We enter your presence

You’ve shown us your glory; You’ve drawn near to us
Now we ask for more of you: send your presence (3x)

And as we go from here, set us apart
Let us be to the world
A people whose every move is marked
By your presence, by your presence
By your presence
