More Than Mere Music



Our songs are a sacrifice
Of praise to our God
That many will hear and believe
Our songs are indwelt
By the Spirit of God
Inhabited  by the grace we receive

More than mere music the songs that we sing
Testify to the world as we walk in the light
So this chorus of praises to Jesus we bring.
As we lift our voices our hearts shall take flight

For you promise to live in our praise in your Word
We lift up holy voices in meter and rhyme
And these mystical melodies still can be heard
In the songs of the redeemed of all time!

You store up our prayers,You enter our praise
We focus our heart with an infinite gaze
So we sing of your grace and your love all our days
To the altar of intimacy we shall bring
The gift of our praise offering.

Thrice holy, yet sheltering us under your wing
You are merciful in your great might
More than mere music the songs that we sing
Testify to the world as we walk in the light

Bridge:
We will sing praise with our spirits,
But we will also sing with our minds
Then the nations will hear it
And God’s salvation find!

You store up our prayers,You enter our praise
We focus our heart with an infinite gaze
So we sing of your grace and your love all our days
To the altar of intimacy we shall bring
The gift of our praise offering.

1 Corinthians 14:15
