Here is another praise song started by Peter. Larry and I wrote the lyrics using some thematic ideas Peter provided. - Elton, 2 August 2008


(Verse 1)
Lord, You lay aside Your crown
And came into this world
Offered as a sacrificial Lamb.
As you rose up from the grave
Death and hell were cast away
Giving hope of life to every man.

(Verse 2)
Glory to Your Name, O Lord,
Glory to Your Name
To heaven now a joyful noise I raise.
By Your grace I live anew
Owing everything to You
Offering this sacrifice of praise:

I just want to thank You, Lord
For the wondrous love You've shown to me.
I just want to thank You, Lord
Dying on the cross to set me free.

(Verse 3)
How can I express my joy
For all that You have done?
My life in You will never be the same.
You have set the captive free
Given me eternity.
Praises to Your great and glorious Name!

(Repeat Chorus)
I just want to thank You, Lord
For the wondrous love You've shown to me.
I just want to thank You, Lord
Dying on the cross to set me free.

I was wondering if i can ask some of your old collections' copy? I really need songs for our choire every sunday worship services. I kinda ran out of songs to use and find a hard time looking for some. I cant play piano or guitar reason why i can't just play anything. Am just using tapes with demonstration and accompaniment. or karaoke cds. really pray i could seek favor from you. It'll be such a gratitude. God bless you.
