Til Jesus Christ Is Praised

Let the gates be opened wide
Let the roof be lifted high
Let the King of glory enter in
Lift your hearts and make a space
Lift your voice and pave the way
Lift the name of Him who takes our sin

Darkness has no place in face of Grace
Fear gives way for praise to the God who saves

Let the nations cry let it split the sky
Let Jesus Christ be praised
Let our hearts resound lay the whole world down
Let Jesus Christ be praised

Let the darkness try to fight
Let it try to face the light
Jesus is the overcoming King
Let the Devil make his claim
Let him try to cut the grain
God’s already conquered everything

There cannot be shame where there is no blame
This is my refrain – my Jesus saves!

Let the nations cry let it split the sky
Let Jesus Christ be praised
Let our hearts resound lay the whole world down
Let Jesus Christ be praised

You are the King of this heart, for you have made it
You are the Lord of this mind that you created
You are the God of these hands, and so I raise them
Up to You, for You are worthy
You are the God of the Cross, You are salvation
You are the Light of the World for all the nations
You are the giver of Grace, of Love, and Mercy
Offered to the undeserving
I’ll lift up no other name, for You are Holy
I will not offer my praise to any other
You are the strength of my days You are my comfort
In the face of all my weakness
I won’t give rest to my voice until I praise You
I won’t give rest to my eyes until I see You
I won’t give rest to my heart until I’ve offered all of me
To all of You my God
