Sing

Sing

We are a broken people, not worthy of Your grace
Humbly we will enter the temple of Your praise
Fall to our knees, Lay at Your scarred feet
The Lamb who took our place upon the mercy seat

And You sing over us. You sing over us.

And we’ll sing of Your great mercy
Sing of Your great grace
Because of Your great love
We’ll sing aloud Your praise

You are the one,
Who’s made us holy and set apart
Claimed as Your people
We worship You, the One True God

And You sing over us. You sing over us.

And we’ll sing of Your great mercy
Sing of Your great grace
Because of Your great love
We’ll sing aloud Your praise

As You sing, As we sing

As You sing over us. You sing over us.

Sing of Your great mercy
Sing of Your great grace
Because of Your great love
We’ll sing aloud Your praise

And we’ll sing of Your great mercy
Sing of Your great grace
Because of Your great love
We’ll sing aloud Your praise

About this song:

This song came from a Lutheran understanding of worship, Gottesdienst, meaning, God's service or Divine Service. The idea that God comes to us in His gifts (baptism, His Word, communion) and we then respond to Him. 

The verse from Zephaniah 3:17 helped to shape the idea in this song of the interaction that takes place. We are not merely gathered to sing at God, but He sings over us as we sing to Him. We interact with Him as He continues to point us to the grace that He has poured out for us.

"The Lord your God is with you,
    the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
    in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.”

~Zephaniah 3:17
