Many are the songs we sing;
Many kinds of offerings,
But now to live the life.

Help us live the life,
Help us live the life.
All we want to do
Is bring You something real,
Bring You something true.

(We hope that)
Precious are the words we speak,
(We pray that)
Precious are the songs we sing;
Precious all these offerings,
But now to live the life.

Now to go the extra mile,
Now to turn the other cheek,
And to serve You with a life.
Let us share Your fellowship,
Even of Your sufferings;
Never let the passion die.

Now to live the life. (x6)
