Story

This is one of the first songs I ever wrote.  I was about 15 or 16 at the time.  I finally got it recorded.  And with Bryan Duncan singing backup as an added bonus!

Lyrics

THAT’S WHY WE PRAISE YOU

by Caryn Borland

 

1.  IN YOU IS LOVE IN YOU IS LIFE

IN THIS WORLD SO DARK YOU GIVE US YOUR LIGHT

YOU FREED US FROM SIN YOU CALMED THE ROUGH STORM

THAT WE MAY HAVE LIFE AND IN YOU BE REBORN (CHORUS)

 

CHORUS

 

THAT’S WHY WE PRAISE YOU LORD OF LORDS

THAT’S WHY WE WORSHIP YOU KING OF KINGS

THE OLD MAN IS GONE AND THE NEW MAN IS BORN

BY YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD OUR LIFE YOU’VE RESTORED

 

2.  THE ROAD MAY SEEM LONG SOMETIMES WITHOUT END

YOU’RE ALWAYS BESIDE US OUR SAVIOR AND FRIEND

YOU LEAD US ON YOU CARRY OUR FEARS

YOU SHOWER US WITH LOVE TO DRY UP OUR TEARS (CHORUS)

 

HALLELUJA 3X

 

3.  OH HOW I LOVE YOU JESUS MY LORD

EMANUEL OH LIVING WORD

MAY YOUR NAME BE PRAISED FOREVERMORE

BY YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD MY LIVE YOU’VE RESTORED (CHORUS)
