The Water And The Blood ~ Track 12 (iTunes-Exclusive): “Psalm 145”

Words & Music by Dustin Kensrue

I will bless You all of my days, Lord
I will praise You always, my God and King
I will bless and honor Your name, Lord
Always and forever, my soul will sing

Such a vast, unsearchable greatness
Great is Yahweh, worthy of all our praise
Let Your people sound through the ages
All Your awesome works ’til the end of days

We have seen Your splendor and glory
We have seen Your wonders and stand amazed
Every tongue will echo Your story
Everyone will sing of Your righteous ways

O let all that lives ever bless His name!

All that You have made, Lord, will praise You
All Your saints will worship in joyful strain
Praise the Lord, who ransoms and rescues
Praise the God of glory, who ever reigns

He is holy, judging the wicked
Guarding those that love Him and fear His name
All that call out, Yahweh is with them
He will hear their cries, He is strong to save

He upholds the one who is stumbling,
Lifting up those burdened with heavy loads;
Opening His hand to the hungry,
Blessing all that look to their Lord and hope!

He is tender toward His creation;
He is faithful, gracious in all He does!
Great is Yahweh, full of compassion,
Slow to anger, filled with unfailing love!

O let all that lives ever bless His name!
O let all that lives ever bless His name!

New Dustin Kensrue Song – REJOICE! (Unofficial Lyrics)

I hope Dustin doesn’t mind my posting this pre-release.  The song is too good to not share!  I’ve probably had this song on repeat more than any other song in my collection since I pre-ordered “The Water And The Blood” on Monday.  Although only 3 minutes long, it is so rich in biblical doxology and theology – almost reads like the call-to-worship Psalms of the OT, interspersed with truth from the Gospels and the Epistles.  So good!

Do yourself a HUGE favor: pre-order any “The Water And The Blood” package (I recommend the one that includes the limited edition poster and notebook), and you will get two (2) tracks: the first single “It’s Not Enough” (official lyrics here) and the opening track “Rejoice”.

Enjoy and God bless!

The Water And The Blood ~ Track 1: “Rejoice”

Words & Music by Dustin Kensrue

STANZA 1
Come and stand before your Maker
Full of wonder, full of fear
Come behold His pow’r and glory
Yet with confidence draw near
For the One who holds the heavens
And commands the stars above
Is the God who bends to bless us
With an unrelenting love

REFRAIN
Rejoice!
Come and lift your hands and raise
Your voice!
He is worthy of all praise!
Rejoice!
Sing the mercies of your King,
And with trembling rejoice!

STANZA 2
We are children of the promise
The beloved of the Lord
Won with everlasting kindness
Bought with sacrificial blood
Bringing reconciliation
To a world that longs to know
The affections of a Father
Who will never let them go

REFRAIN
Rejoice!
Come and lift your hands and raise
Your voice!
He is worthy of all praise!
Rejoice!
Sing the mercies of your King,
And with trembling rejoice!

STANZA 3
All our sickness, all our sorrows
Jesus carried up the hill
He has walked this path before us
He is walking with us still
Turning tragedy to triumph
Turning agony to praise
There is blessing in the battle
So take heart and stand amazed!

TAG
Rejoice!  When you cry to Him He hears
Your voice; He will wipe away your tears
Rejoice in the midst of suffering
He will help you sing

REFRAIN
Rejoice!
Come and lift your hands and raise
Your voice!
He is worthy of all praise!
Rejoice!
Sing the mercies of your King,
And with trembling rejoice!
