Lord, We Come and Offer Praise

Full Text

1. Lord, we come and offer praise—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
God of Israel’s chosen race—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
You’re the everlasting Lord—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
Greatness and pow’r in You are stored—
Lord we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name.

2. Yours the glory, splendor, too—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
Heav’n and earth belong to You—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
Yours the kingdom, now we call—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
You’re the exalted head o’er all—
Lord we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name.

3. Wealth and honor from you spring—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
You’re the ruler of all things—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
In Your hands are strength and pow’r—
Lord we give You thanks, and we praise Your name.
You exalt, give strength each hour—
Lord we give You thanks, and praise Your glorious name.
