That's Why We Are Here
Copyright 2003 Ron Barnes

We are here to spread the good news and bring music to your ears.
To praise Jesus, that's why we are here.

We have come to praise our Father. We have come to praise His Son.
We have come to share the joy of being gathered here as one.
We have come to feel the glory when the Son of God is near
And to worship, that's why we are here.

We have come into this building built with faith and loving hands
To accept the blessings given us because the Son of Man
Came to die for our salvation. Let His message fill our ears.
Let us praise Him. That's why we are here.

We are here to share the glory. We are here to share the love.
We are here to share the blessings of our Father up above.
We are here because when two or more are gathered in His name,
He is with us and we feel His love. That's why we're glad we came.

We are here to heed His calling. We are here to do His Will.
We are here because He promised He would be with us until
Time itself shall be no more. There is nothing we should fear.
We're His children. That's why we are here.

INSTRUMENTAL

There is peace within this house today because we feel His power.
And we know that He is with us every minute every hour.
Let us praise Him now with all our hearts and love that is sincere.
Let us worship. That's why we are here.

When the Son of God came down to earth to show His healing hand,
He said, "Go and preach the Gospel so His love can fill the land."
So we come to you with news of love that always will endure
And how sins as black as night are washed away with blood so pure.

So we have come to praise our Father. We have come to praise His Son.
We have come to share the joy of being gathered here as one.
We have come to feel the glory when the Son of God is near
And to worship, that's why we are here.
To sing praises, that's why we are here.
Because we love Him, that's why we are here.
