This Is Why We're Here


Verse 1
You are the God who seeks and saves
You are the God who freely gave
Your own beloved Son
We are a people saved by blood
We are a people filled with love
Because of all you’ve done
So as we gather in this place
May we magnify your grace
 
Chorus 1
Father, you have bought us, called us, brought us here
Through the blood of Jesus, we by faith draw near
Let our song be raised, as we bring you praise
This is why we’re here
 
Verse 2
You are the God who speaks what’s right
You are the God who gives us light
That we might know your way
We are a people great in need
We are a people called to feed
On every word you say
So as we hear your voice anew
May we worship you in truth
 
Chorus 2
Father, you have bought us, called us, brought us here
Through the blood of Jesus, we by faith draw near
May our hearts rejoice, as we hear your voice
This is why we’re here
 
Verse 3
You are the God who hears our cries
You are the God who will provide
For those who are your own
We are a people weak and worn
We are a people tossed and torn
Who come before your throne
So as we lift our eyes today
May you hear us as we pray
 
Chorus 3
Father, you have bought us, called us, brought us here
Through the blood of Jesus, we by faith draw near
To your throne of grace, as we seek your face
This is why we’re here
