Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You
Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You're my God
You're altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
Verse 2
King of all days
O so highly exalted
Glorious in Heaven above
Humbly You came to the earth You created
All for love's sake became poor
(Repeat Chorus)
I'll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon the cross
...Worship You
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I worship You for who You are

I worship You
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I worship You for who You are

    This song is the perfect response to the sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross. I am actually lost in Christ each time I hear it. I have it on my mp3 and I love it sooooooooo much. Thanks so much Israel Houghton. You've blessed my soul with this song.

    Such a beautiful worship song. I sang this song at a church service and it put us all in the spirit. Great for praise and worship.

    To give him allo praise for what he did and still does for us . He died for our sins, something nobody can do . He is almighty! Bow down and give him all praise ... For who he is.

    Worship is not about thanking god for what he has done for you but for who he is. Consider how great he is and worship him. Scripture declares in psalm 95:3-7 how great he is and why we should worship him. Amen!!!
