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.

  24. I love this song so much. Late 2015 I converted to catholic, since then I've been hearing it. It has become my favorite song. Crossover night at my parish St Patrick Benin City, the choir sang it and I was so happy. Sunday 28th Match during our 2nd scrutiny it was also sang and I told my fellow cathumens that this is my favorite song and hopefully the day I get married I will make sure it is played. Since that Sunday there has been no mass during the lockdown. And there was no baptism for my cathumen class at Easter. On Sundays church is empty very few people coming to pray at the altars. And I wonder when everything will go back to normal. Sometimes I sing this song and I know that everything is going to be allright. I can't wait for lockdown to be over and the choir will sing it again.
