    The (Maybe Slightly Cliched) Worship Song
    (With occasional mixed metaphors and general confusion and annoyance at Pete following.... :laugh: )


    We have entered your gates to come into your presence
    As we stand here in this place and bow our knees before you
    Lifting our hands while we lay before you dancing

    We can't express all you've done
    But we lift our voices and sing and shout to you
    We give you all the worship and praise and thanks

    With all that is in us we give our all to you
    We want to see your face so let your presence fall
    Hold us in your arms under the shadow of your wings

    Let your mighty burning river rage
    Let the waters flood and drench us in their flames
    Wash us in the fiery sea
    Until it soaks in and is burnt in what we will be



    I think I got them all? :tongue3: :smilewinkgrin:

    I had planned to be even more evil and finish it with "we put our lives in your hands" 3 times, then add "we put our.........left foot in and pull our left foot out....." and get into the hokey-pokey, but that would definitely be "Myth busted", I think as it is it's in the "Plausible" category :smilewinkgrin:

    You missed something along the lines of "Hold us close in your warm, loving embrace."

    Got me there Ransom. I've got "in your arms under the shadow of your wings", but no "close...warm, loving embrace" :( Oh well, I guess no song is perfect after all.... :smilewinkgrin:

    *BOWS* Thanks Joseph :) Although really the credit (or is that blame ;) ) should probably go to all those hundreds of song-writers who have gone before who have used just about every word in the song themselves :smilewinkgrin:

    Oh, and I forgot about the events at Church in Cedar, thanks :thumbs:

    Lets run it against the P&W Requirements Checkometer:

    Urges people to raise their hands... check
    Compels standing... check
    Urges shouting... check
    Condones dancing... check
    Praises self for praising... check

    And bonus points for:
    Contains river reference... check
    Presence of the word presence... check

    Assuming you planned on repeating the song over at least four times with some stock imagery displayed on the screen from a large projector (picture of a river during river reference, etc), I think you may have a hit with the charismania crowd!
