(Verse 1)

Oh mighty God, my faithful God, your mercies ever new.
I need you, Lord, more of you, Lord, my spirit thirsts for you.
I lift my hands, I raise my voice, in worship to the King.
You are my hope, you are my peace, you are my everything.

(Chorus)

Prepare my heart to touch their hearts with the heart of God.
I'll make your paths straight, compelling them to come.
The highways and the byways are filled with those in need.
I'll cry out in the wilderness, "Come see the King of Kings."

(Verse 2)

I seek your face, amazing grace, ignite the fire in me.
Come purify and sanctify, so that the world might see,
Your love for them has always been a bridegroom's for his bride.
It's why you came, it's why you stayed, it's why you bled and died.

(Chorus)

Prepare my heart to touch their hearts with the heart of God.
I'll make your paths straight, compelling them to come.
The highways and the byways are filled with those in need.
I'll cry out in the wilderness, "Come see the King of Kings."

(Verse 3)

The trials that come won't stop the love I feel for you today.
What lies ahead will be instead a love song to my king.
Betrothed to you, I long for you, and our wedding day.
You are my hope, you are my peace, you are my everything.

Come purify and sanctify, so that the world might see.
I seek your face, amazing grace, ignite the fire in me.



"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God" (II Timothy 1:7,8).




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Bill, This wonderful. It must be overwhelming set to music. You'll have to teach us in between books in the Heavenly Realms Library! May God bless your gift to us all!

Great lyrics - would love to hear them put to music. I'm envisioning contemporary beats, guitars, and keyboards
