THE LORD HAS SPOKEN. (Men/Women echo)
His purpose stands. (Men/Women echo)
The Lord has spoken. (Men/Women echo)
His purpose stands. (Men/Women echo)

Does God speak and then not act?
Make a vow and not fulfill?
I will choose to serve the Lord
Wholeheartedly, wholeheartedly.

(Ch 1.)
Oh, raise up a church
With a different spirit,
Like Caleb’s spirit, believing Your word.
Oh, raise up a church who will not sin,
They press on in to possess the land.


You began with just one man,
A covenant with Abraham,
Promising that through his seed
The nations would be blessed,
And now Your plan is manifest.

(Repeat Ch1.)

(Ch2.)
Oh, raise up a church who walk by faith,
In the fear of God they overcome.
Oh, raise up a church
Whose God is with them,
They walk in wisdom, they fear no harm.
Deliver us from the fear of man,
And by Your grace we shall stand.
We’ll call to mind Your mighty works
And Your acts of sovereign power;
We’ll gather strength as we agree
The battle belongs to the Lord.


(Repeat Ch1. & Ch2.)

(Ch 3.)
Oh, raise up a church
Who revere Your judgements,
They lift up a banner of mercy and love.
Oh, raise up a church
Who’ll not keep silent,
They speak of the glory of Your dear Son.
