PRAISE AWAITS YOU IN THIS PLACE TODAY, O LORD
We are gathered, ready God to sing Your praise

Ready to respond to the glories of Your name
To the wonders of Your heart, to Your great love

Praise is waiting for You in this place
There's a cry that our spirits will make
As we sing Your glory
To Your mercies our souls will awake,
And we'll sing 'til the break of the day
Because You are worthy
Yes Lord!

Seasons come and seasons go but You remain
So unchanging, all-deserving of our praise

We're ready to respond to the glories of Your name
To the wonders of Your heart, to Your great love
