VERSE 1: The heart of man won't be satisfied Lest the heart of man sees you glorified For all my toil would lie in waste Should Christ my God not be praised CHORUS: So we lift our hands, we lift our song And set you first over all where you belong And should there be a higher love I'll cast it down to raise you up VERSE 2: From rising sun to eve of day Through dark of night we'll lift your name Though lions roar and battles rage The loudest sound will be your praise VERSE 3: The heart of man is fashioned so It heeds the call to bow down low We bend the knee and lay our crowns To know the joy of your renown
VERSE: You are the bright light in the darkness You are the high hope to the hopeless, Jesus you are You are the answer to every searching heart You are the rescue to all who've wandered far, Jesus you are CHORUS: Your arm is not too short to save And I will take your hand, and trust you'll show the way I know your ways are higher; You are Jehovah Jireh, my provider In you, we have the victory And you prepare my food before my enemies I know that you are stronger And if my God is for me, who can be against me BRIDGE: Christ before me (echo), Christ behind me (echo) Christ is in me (echo), he's the hope of glory (echo) Christ before me (echo), Christ behind me (echo) Christ is in me (echo), he's the hope of glory (echo) The hope of glory, yes Jesus you are
VERSE 1: I will love you when I ascend your mountain God I will love you when I'm kneeling in the valley dust For my praise will not depend on the circumstance I'm in VERSE 2: I will love you when I'm sailing in your Spirit winds I will love you when I'm stranded on the desert plains For my praise will not depend on the circumstance I'm in PRE CHORUS: But who you are and all you've done Holy God, faithful one CHORUS: In the battle and the blessing My heart and mouth be heard confessing A song of praise to rise above it all In the hurt and in the healing Day and night in every season As song of praise to rise above it all BRIDGE: Hallelujah, hallelujah A song of praise to rise above it all
VERSE 1: Keep me rooted in Jesus Keep me nourished by your Word Keep me grounded in you alone Keep me anchored to the Capstone CHORUS: It is Christ who defines my reason to be In him I live and breathe and move Let my heart stay true, as I follow you I'll keep Jesus at the centre The centre of it all VERSE 2: Keep my vision on Jesus Keep me measured by your grace Keep my feet sure, on the narrow Keep my faith strong as I follow BRIDGE: Jesus at the centre, Jesus at the centre Everything begins and ends in you Jesus at the centre, Jesus at the centre All praise belongs to you
