  We bring an of- fering to You,   Oh

Over the skies of Bethlehem appeared a star
While angels sang to lowly shepherds
Three wise men seeking truth traveled from afar
Hoping to find a Child from heaven
Falling on their knees
They bowed before the humble Prince of Peace

I bring an offering of worship to my King
No one on earth deserves the praises that I sing
Jesus, may You receive the honor that You're due
O Lord, I bring an offering to You

The sun cannot compare to the glory of Your love
There is no shadow in Your presence
No mortal man would dare
To stand before Your throne
Before the Holy One of heaven
It's only by Your blood
And it's only through Your mercy, Lord, I come

O Lord, we bring an offering to You
O Lord, we bring an offering to You
We bring an offering
We bring an offering
We bring an offering
I bring an offering to You
