Lord’s Testimony

 

1.
D
We will not part
A                  D
From Your Testimony, Lord
G
We will leave our father’s house
A
And cling to you God
D
We will not trust our bow
G                             Bm
And we will not trust our sword
G              D
You must save us again
A                    D
As You’ve saved us before

 

Chorus.
G
Awake, We do not sleep, Oh Lord
D                                              A
Arise, Do not cast us off forever
Em                             D                       A
We will make Your Name to be remembered
G
Awake! We do not sleep, Oh Lord
Bm                                                         A
Arise! We will praise Your Name forever
Em                            G                        D                    A
We will make Your Name to be remembered
2.
Though guilt and shame
Had followed our path
It is from the enemy
You have slain the enemy
For our sakes
You were a lamb upon the cross
All of our wealth
We count it as loss
Em        D               G
Do not hide Your face
A                                  Em
Our souls are bowed down to the dust
D                  G
Our hearts have not turned back
A
Nor departed from Your Way

Background:  January 2015 – This song came out of the Winter Vision Week, from various phrases from the Psalms written by the sons of Korah. While being inspired by those verses, I also felt that I wanted to capture a plea to the Lord to move in His Churches and to make us ready to work for Him and with Him.
