Lyrics

He is Here

Written By: Ruth Dente

Lord you are welcome in this place
Let your glory shine on every face
We declare your presence and majesty
You are welcome in this place

Chorus
He is here, He is here
Lift your voice in praise to him
He is here, He is here
Bow down and worship him

The presence of the Lord is in our midst
For we are gathered in Jesus name
The sick can be healed
Every burdened can be freed
All things are possible
Just believe that
The presence of the Lord is in our midst

The Blood

Written By: Ruth Dente

The blood

What can wash away all sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make us whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Chorus
Oh! How precious is the blood of Jesus
So precious is the blood of Jesus (repeat)

This is all my hope and peace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Bridge
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

iStand

Written By: ruth dente

iStand Key : B

For the cause of Christ I take my stand
With the blood washed church of the redeemed
I will follow Christ alone
With my heart, my mind, my soul

When the enemy comes in like a flood
Doing all he can, not to be withstood
I will take the shield of faith
The gates of hell shall not prevail

Chorus
iStand for righteousness
iStand for holiness
iStand for truth and love
iStand, iStand
iStand for faithfulness
iStand on God’s promises
iStand for truth and love
iStand, iStand

It doesn’t matter what comes or goes, I’ll stand
No matter what tomorrow holds, I’ll stand,
If God is for me tell me what can stand against

Whoa whoa o o Whoa whoa o o o

Bridge:
What can separate me from the love of Jesus
What can separate me from His love! 2X
