Feedback is appreciated. Just send a short e-mail note to
and let me know what you think of this song or this method of outreach.

Dave Laborde is the pastor of Community Bible Church in Paris, Illinois. He wrote the first verse, and I added the rest and arranged it for choir. Dave and I were college roommates many moons ago, writing and performing Christian music back then also, including The Cross and The Crown.

We come today to pledge anew
Your love for us, our love for You.
Receive our prayers, accept our praise,
Both now and throughout eternal days!

We come today with hearts aflame,
To glorify Your matchless Name:
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords,
The Bread of Life and The Living Word.

If we did not sing our praise to You,
Then the stones would shout,
And the stars would, too.
For Your matchless praise
Cannot be contained
In our heart ...  In our soul ...

So (repeat verse 1, then last line of verse 1)
