Kings stand before the majesty of God’s presence
Princes see the Lord and bow down
for when they know God, the maker and shaper of the Universe
they know their wealth, their power, their influence is naught
we too gather in the presence of God
in humbleness and modesty
in awe and wonder that the King of all Creation
loves us enough to come to us
to invite us, even us, to come and see
come and see Jesus
come and see his power, his wisdom, his grace, his love
What love is this, that we are invited to be part of revealing this good news to the world?
We are not rich or powerful.
We have little we can offer the world, but ourselves
yet we hear your voice calling to us, Christ Jesus
calling, come and see.
How we long to see.
To see your face shine upon us
to see your kingdom come, truly be here
where your splendour lights up the nations
where hymns of praise are sung by every nation
by plants and trees
where even the waves raise an aria for the one who separated the waters from the land
Gather us to you
so our hearts, souls and minds would be filled with your spirit
enriched in every way
to bring you honour and glory in our adoration
you are the one who should receive all our adoration
but we realise there are times where we have not done this
we see others struggling and turn our backs,rather than helping hands from their miry pits
we focus on how little we have, rather than the abundance you give us and your church each and every day
we hear your voice saying “come and see,” and we find excuses to not follow as you call
for these, and the other ways we have failed you, Lord God, we are truly sorry.
Before this congregation, we admit we have failed other and you, and humbly seek your forgiveness
May we know the forgiveness God offers us this day, through Christ Jesus, our Lord and King
