News At Eleven – For The Lord's Sake lyrics

The spirit of the Lord is on me
It whispers in my ear:
“Proclaim to all my people that the hour of the Lord is near”

The melody your spirit sings me
I hear it deep inside
The coming of your kingdom brings me joy I cannot hide

And for the Lord’s sake
I will not be silent
For the Lord’s sake
I will raise my voice
For the Lord’s sake
I will gather His people
And build the city of the Lord

The people who were once in darkness
Have seen an awesome light
My Lord, you send us forth to witness
Lead them from the night

(repeat chorus)

Lord, to whom shall we go?
And Lord, to whom shall we run?
For you, for you and you alone
Have the words of eternal life!

(repeat chorus)
