Version by the composer and a contemporary choir:

Solo singer with contemporary backing choir:

Small church choir with praise band:


O yes, in the presence of the Lord,
I will bring my gifts
In thanksgiving and love
There is joy in my heart.
It is flowing like a river
I will praise the Lord,
In thanksgiving and love.

1 God our Father, everlasting King
Please accept this gift we offer.
Take our bread upon Your altar
And our wine in the chalice.

2 With thankful hearts and joyful songs,
We approach Your holy altar
Bearing gifts of Your creation
We return what You have given.

3 To You Father, now we offer,
With the host and with the chalice.
All we have and all our being
In this sacrifice most holy.
