Lyrics

Jesus we’re coming to worship
Jesus we give you it all
Laying our lives down before you
In reverence, in wonder, in awe

(Cus) You’ve called us out of darkness
Into your glorious light
Our bondage broken forever
By your mercy, you’ve given us new life

We are your church, this is your praise
We’ll give you glory, now and always

You are, you are, the God who saves
It is your love that captivates
My soul, rescued by you
Your joy, within my heart
We will never be torn apart
Once lost, now found in you
Jesus I’m found in you, woah, woah, woah

Even though we don’t deserve it
God you’ve made a way
Even though we couldn’t have earned it
You still showed us grace

You’ve taken away our sorrow
Taken away our shame
Placed a hope inside us
Now we can dance again

 

Song Story

I felt like I wanted to write a call to worship song based around being found in Jesus, celebrating all that he has done for us. There were a couple of passages from scripture that served as a starting point. I was looking at 1 Peter 2:9-10 where it says “you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” This became the inspiration for the verse, that we are no longer bound by sin because he has been merciful to us, calling us into life. The inspiration for the chorus came from one of my favourite books in the bible, Philippians. There have been some significant words given to myself and my wife from verses in the book, and I love to read about the joy that Paul finds in Christ, amidst being in prison for the sake of the gospel.  In verse 9, Paul says “be found in him.” We recognise that Jesus has given us hope and a future and we praise him because of all he has done for us.

When it came to crafting the song, I started with two verses and more words than I needed in the chorus. Dave and Bernie helped me shape the song to make it as it is now – we moved some ideas around, finished the bridge and worked on aspects of the melody. It’s always such a blessing co-writing with them.
