Here I Am To Worship
Featuring the lyrics “Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down,Here I am to say that You’re my God” this song acknowledges God’s power over everyone. This slow praise song can make a person hum as he or she listens to the song. The coda portion also has a very deep message especially for people who are asking for forgiveness and conversion. It says “I never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross… Call upon the name of the Lord and be saved,” repeatedly until the song ends.
King of Majesty
The song begins with the lines, “You know that I love You, You know that I want You.” The refrain plays, “King of majesty, I have one desire, is to be with You, my Lord,” and “Jesus, You are the Savior of my soul, and forever I give my praises to You.” Those who would like to praise God through hip tunes are surely taken by the great lyrics and arrangement of this song.
Now That You’re Near
This song has several arrangements, with the rock versions being one of the most popular. “Hold me in Your arms, never let me go, I want to spend my eternity with You,” says the refrain.
The chorus of this song has the lyrics, “One way, Jesus, You’re the only One that I could live for.” This is, perhaps one of the most popular songs of the group. This has sent a huge number of Christians all over the world jumping and dancing as they sing along with the song.
