We hosted a citywide gathering tonight at mgpc. Some of our musicians and friends provided the music.
We tried a pretty jazzy version of Arise, My Soul Arise; (that I don’t think we completely mastered, but which I enjoyed a lot) along with Before The Throne Of God Above; Be Thou My Vision; Speak, O Lord; and concluded with As You Go.
As You Go is written by Mark Altrogge and was featured on the Sovereign Grace Music album The Gathering.
It moves nicely, and makes some helpful points which focus the experience of corporate worship as the body of Christ spreads back out into the world.
A good ‘going’ song.
The lyrics:
1.
As you go, may you know the love of Christ
How deep and long, how high and wide
As you leave, may you seek to win the prize
And find His death to be your life
CHORUS
May you go in the love of your Father God
May you go in the grace of Christ
May you go in the power of the Spirit now
To bring Him glory with your life
2.
As you go, may you know the pow’r of grace
His very strength for what’s to come
As you leave, may you feel His mighty hand
Guiding your steps in the race you run
CHORUS
3.
As you go, may you show His heart to bless
The ones with less, the blind and lost
As you leave, may you be the light of Christ
And show our hope is in the cross
CHORUS
Mark Altrogge.
