worship music wednesday

i think for february i'm going to do a "love" theme for worship music wednesday. so easily we get caught up in valentine's day, romantic relationships, lovey dovey stuff--and yet the greatest love we have to experience is the love that was shown and given to us by Christ's sacrifice on the cross. it's not just a Sunday morning thing that we remember once a week--it really is a relationship that needs to be loved and tended to just as the other relationships we have in our lives.

this one is by the group leeland. my favorite part is the "this is all for you" bridge towards the end and the beginning of that second verse--"three nails gave me liberty."

Every tree and every stone
Every rushing wind that moans
They sing Your praise
My God, they sing Your praise
Every star and open sky
Tell of Your glory divine
They shout Your praise
They shout Your praise, yeah

You've stolen my heart
Yes, You have
You've stolen my heart
Yes, You have
You've wiped away the stains
And broke away the chains
Yes, You have

With Your love You set me free
Three nails gave me liberty
So I'll sing Your praise
My God, I'll sing Your praise
Oh, with Your love
You forgave my sin
Forgot my past
And brought me back again
So I'll sing Your praise
I'll sing Your praise, yeah

If I ascend into the sky
Or hide behind the night
I can not run Your love is chasing me
If I fall into the sea
Your hand will rescue me
No one will take Your place

This is all for You
Yes, this is all for You
You're the King of the world
You're the King of the world
