This song was written as a “preparation” type song for the preaching of God’s Word. If you want to use this in your church, feel free… but I would appreciate knowing! (if enough churches use it, it makes it worth it to license it via CCLI).
Verse 1 We gather here, O God, To hear Your living Word; Penetrate our deepest thoughts And let our hearts be stirred. Prepare our minds and ears With true humility; Cause our eyes to see the Christ, Our hearts to love Him more. Chorus Teach us Your truth, Show us Your love, Impress Your holiness on us. We seek to grow in grace, To turn from sin and see the cross; Convict us with Your holy Word And stir our hearts (with Your Word). Verse 2 O let us not just hear, But stir us then to do; We believe; yet help us now To learn to fear you more. Lord, grow Your fruit in us, Your patience, kindness, joy; Teach us to forgive and love, As we, Your Word, employ.
