All ye nations sing songs of praise;
Raise your hands and receive His grace.
For you Lord have rescued generations;
Though we are unfaithful You turned away from our transgressions.
When I was in darkness You showed me Your light;
When I was proud You showed me Your might.
In sadness as I danced to the worlds tune;
You gave me joy as I knelt alone in my room.
I searched for You in the work of my hands;
I searched for You in the people I met.
Yet I was too deaf to notice;
The one on whom I rested my head.
But through the storm You screamed out to me;
It was not I who ran to you but You who ran to me.
You held me near Your wounded heart;
And said darling don’t you ever depart.
So let every sinner shed tears of joy;
And every faithful remain always so.
I for one will bow before my Father’s throne;
And submit my heart to Him now and forever more.
