Lyrics


House of God, Forever

Verse

God is my shepherd

I won't be wanting

I won't be wanting

He makes me rest

In fields of green

With quiet streams


Even though I walk

Through the valley

Of death and dying

I will not fear

'Cause You are with me

You're always with me


Chorus

Your shepherd's staff comforts me

You are my Feast in the presence of enemy

Surely goodness will follow me, follow me

In the house of God forever

I Shall Not Want

Verse 1

From the love of my own comfort

From the fear of having nothing

From a life of worldly passions

Deliver me, O God

Deliver me, O God


Verse 2

From the need to be understood

From the need to be accepted

From the fear of being lonely

Deliver me, O God

Deliver me, O God


Chorus

And I shall not want

No, I shall not want

When I taste Your goodness, I shall not want

When I taste Your goodness, I shall not want


Verse 3

From the fear of serving others

From the fear of death or trial

From the fear of humility

Deliver me, O God

Deliver me, O God


Chorus

And I shall not want

No, I shall not want

When I taste Your goodness, I shall not want


And I shall not want

No, I shall not want

When I taste Your goodness I shall not want

When I taste Your goodness I shall not want

Come as You Are

Verse 1

Come out of sadness, from wherever you've been

Come broken-hearted, let rescue begin

Come find your mercy, O sinner come kneel

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal


Chorus

So, lay down your burdens, lay down your shame

All who are broken lift up your face

O wanderer come home, you're not too far

So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart

Come as you are

Come as you are


Verse 2

There's hope for the hopeless, and all those who've strayed

Come sit at the table, come taste the grace

There's rest for the weary, rest that endures

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure


Chorus

So, lay down your burdens, lay down your shame

All who are broken lift up your face

O wanderer come home, you're not too far

So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart

Come as you are

Come as you are


Bridge 1

Come to the table, from near and far

Come from the shadows, come out of the dark

There's room at the table, we saved you a seat

Come to the banquet, come join in the feast


Bridge 2

Come to the table, come eat and drink

There's no inner circle, come dine with the King

Recline at the table, come let down your guard

You're never a stranger, just come as you are


Bridge 3

Prepared is the table, we're ready to feast

The party is waiting, there's more still to feed

The harvest is ready, go fill every seat

Go live out the mission as a kingdom of priests

Go live out the mission as a kingdom of priests

Go live out the mission as a kingdom of priests

Sing to the lord (Banner)

Verse 1

Sing to the Lord a new song

Sing to the Lord, all the Earth

In the beauty of His holiness

The beauty of His holiness

 

Verse 2

Sing to the Lord a new song

Sing to the Lord, oh my soul

In the wonders of His mighty hand

The wonders of His mighty hand

 

Chorus

"Great is the Lord," we cry

"And greatly to be praised!"

Let every nation rise and say

"Our God reigns, our God reigns"

 

Verse 3

Sing to the Lord a new song

Worship the Lord evermore

In the glory of His majesty

The glory of His majesty

 

Chorus

"Great is the Lord," we cry

"And greatly to be praised!"

Let every nation rise and say

"Our God reigns, our God reigns"
