In Reverence

(the lyrics to a new song we plan to record this spring to include on our next CD)
In reverence, Lord, we come to Thee,
We bow our heads, to look Above.
We give our hearts to ponder Thee
With wondering awe and grateful love.

How can it be, Lord, that you love us so?
When we have fallen so far?
I do not think that we will ever know
And so we kneel, o Lord.

In reverence, Lord, You thrill our hearts,
How You amaze us evermore.
As by Your Son, such grace imparts
To us a free and open door.

How can it be, Lord, that You bore the wounds,
The stripes our sins brought unto Thee?
Yes, we recall the lonely cross and tomb,
Whereby our hearts are healed!

How wonderful, Lord, You must be, How kind your tender love and grace.
How beautiful the sight we’ll see when first we look upon Your face. 

In reverence, Lord, forevermore,
We’ll bow our head, to look with love.
We’ll give our hearts, Christ to explore,
Forever won’t be long enough.

Our precious Lord, how we thank You so
We fall unto our face.
Oh look into our grateful hearts and know
Our reverence for Thy grace.

“Let us have grace, that we may serve Thee acceptably, 
with reverence  and godly fear.”
(Hebrews 12:28)
