The Gathering Lyrics

Evidence

All throughout my history
Your faithfulness has walked beside me
The winter storms made way for spring
In every season, from where I’m standing 

I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life 

Help me remember when I’m weak
Fear may come, but fear will leave
You lead my heart to victory
You are my strength and You always will be 

I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life 

See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
See the cross, the empty grave
The evidence is endless
All my sin rolled away
Because of You, oh, Jesus
Oh 

I see the evidence of Your goodness
All over my life, all over my life
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life, yeah
I see the evidence of Your goodness (when I wake up in the morning)
All over my life (I see Your mercies are new)
All over my life (yeah, You’re all around us)
I see Your promises in fulfillment
All over my life, all over my life (yeah, You’re all around us) 

So why should I fear?
The evidence is here
Why should I fear?
Oh, the evidence is here 

 

Way Maker

You are here, moving in our midst
I worship You
I worship You 

You are here, working in this place
I worship You
I worship You 

You are
Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness, my God
That is who You are 

You are
Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness, my God
That is who You are 

You are here, touching every heart
I worship You
I worship You 

You are here, healing every life
I worship You,
I worship, Lord 

And You are
Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness, my God
That is who You are 

Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness, my God
That is who You are (yeah, sing it again) 

That is who You are
And that is who You are
And that is who You are
(That is who You are) 

Even when I don’t see it, You’re working
Even when I don’t feel it, You’re working
You never stop, You never stop working
You never stop, You never stop working 

Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper
Light in the darkness, my God
That is who You are 

That is who You are
And that is who You are
And that is who You are
(That is who You are) 

 

Your Water

I was losin’, I was lost
Cursin’ everything that I come across
I was wounded, I was weak
I didn’t realize I needed a drink
Of your water, your water
It floods my memory and it quenches my soul 

I was busted, I was broke
Drownin’ in the darkness and startin’ to choke
I was strugglin’, I was stranded
But then I bent down and cupped my hands in
Your water, your water
It floods my memory and it quenches my soul 

I was fumblin’ and frustrated
I was sluggish and sedated
I was wounded, I was wasted
I was blind up until I tasted
Your water, your water
It floods my memory and it quenches my soul
It floods my memory and it quenches my soul 

 

Come As You Are

Come out of sadness
From wherever you’ve been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are 

There’s hope for the hopeless
And all those who’ve strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There’s rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t cure 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
Lay down your hurt lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are
There’s joy for the morning
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can’t heal 

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You’re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are

We are not alone, we live in God’s world.

who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to love and serve others,

*Hymn 144: “This Is My Father’s World”
This is my Father’s world,
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world:
I rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
his hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world,
the birds their carols raise,
the morning light, the lily white,
declare their maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world:
he shines in all that’s fair;
in the rustling grass I hear him pass;
he speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world.
O let me ne’er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world:
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
