One of the songs used in a church service we attended while on holidays was Rejoice.
This version is by one of the song’s composers, Dustin Kensrue.
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.
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.
We are children of the promise,
The beloved of the Lord.
Won with everlasting kindness,
Bought with sacrificial blood.
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a father
Who will never let them go.
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.
Stuart Townend and Dustin Kensrue
