Rule by our God, cannot ever fail. The time will have come for a new earthly start, the song of our praises will pour from our heart.
“ We thank you, our God for all you have done. All things are new by the rule of your son. The fullness of our heart overflow in our song. All glory and honor and praise to be long.”
2.Now see yourself, and see me too; and look ahead to the world that is sight wesight we see, no sound we hear will cause alarm or give rise to fear. All has come true, just as he said, now over mankind, his tent is spead. He now will awaken those sleeping and death, their voices will join ours with ev’ry grateful breath.
(CHORUS) “ We thank you, our God for all you have done. All things are new by the rule of your son. The fullness of our heart overflow in our song. All glory and honor and praise to be long.”
