I Want To See My Savior – David Rives | Lyrics

I Want To See My Savior – David Rives
From the album “FOREVER” Le’olam  www.davidrives.com

I live my life every day, sometimes it can be tough,
And then I hit a slippery path, and You, Lord, pick me up.
I think about Your word and how, sometimes I did not heed.
I can’t believe You cared about a simple man like me.

I long to see Your glory, way up above the skies,
I long to see You sitting on Your throne up in the high
I gaze into the heavens in awe of what I see,
The majesty created there amazes even me.

Oh, I want to see my Savior, when this life will end
Thank my dear Creator, who saved me from my sins.
Praise Him in the morning, praise Him every night
Who took away my troubles, and He made the darkness light

You gave me songs of gladness, led me on the way,
Brought me through trials, Lord, and taught me how to pray.
You give me opportunities to speak of your great love,
And help another hungry soul to learn of You above.

I long to see Your glory, way up above the skies,
I long to see You sitting on Your throne up in the high
I gaze into the heavens in awe of what I see,
The majesty created there amazes even me.

Oh, I want to see my Savior, when this life will end
Thank my dear Creator, who saved me from my sins.
Praise Him in the morning, praise Him every night
Who took away my troubles, and He made the darkness light
Yes, You took away my troubles, Lord and made the darkness light

We Come (To Praise the Lord) – David Rives | Lyrics

We Come (To Praise the Lord)  – David Rives
From the album “FOREVER” Le’olam  www.davidrives.com

He is Holy, we come to praise the Lord
He is worthy, we shout before the Lord

You provide us everything we need.
The God who gave to Abraham a promise for his seed.
You sent us your Son, Messiah, The One.
And He will return. I believe!
You are Holy, we come to praise You Lord.

Awaken from your sleep, Jerusalem
And shout aloud to the great I Am
Open His word, He wants to be heard
Ask – you shall receive.
You’re Israel! Emmanuel was sent for you and me.

As we seek Your will, you start to reveal, the things that we should see
And today as we begin to pray, You give these words to me:

You are Holy, we come to praise You Lord
You are worthy, we shout before You Lord
With our Father we stand, from all over the land,
A song in our hearts, we rejoice.
He is Holy – we come to praise the Lord

REPEAT CHORUS
You are Holy – we shout before You Lord

You Are Lord – David Rives | Lyrics

You Are Lord – David Rives
From the album “Fall Down” www.davidrives.com

Verse 1
To the gates of pearly splendor we are drawn by Your glory
Into Your steady arms we will lean
With amazing grace he saved us, now we’re following His Word
We are purchased by the blood, He made us clean.

Verse 2
Yes, He is there with every breath, I breathe a little deeper
My heart thanks Him for every beat.
I close my eyes in prayer at night, aware of all my weakness
Without Him I would never wake from sleep.

Bridge
We’re called to be a witness of His mercy and His love
We want to be a blessing till we meet with Him above

Chorus:
You are Lord, our Strength, our Comforter and Shield
You are Lord, the God of Abraham
The truth, the light, the power of the wonderful Provider
You are Lord, the great I AM

Verse 3
Do we reflect Him, day and night, the way we act and speak?
Do we apologize for our beliefs?
Do we associate with those who tempt us and corrupt us?
They try to pull you down when you are weak

Bridge
This is what God gave to me, one body for this life
Do I let it fade away, or shine my light:

Chorus X2

You are Lord, the great I AM

I can stand no more in silence – Listening to creation groan

You came to earth as a servant, not pursuing earthly fame
Bm                                  Em                Am                                           D
Condemned to die for our transgressions — found without a spot of blame
Bm                                   Em           Am                               D
Rising up into the heavens – at your return we will be claimed
Bm                                  Em                C                                           D
Every knee will bow before you – Every tongue will say your name

Praise The One – David Rives | Lyrics

Praise The One – David Rives
From the album “Fall Down” www.davidrives.com

There’s a shadow over this world, There’s a shadow over everything
Trouble round every bend and curve, Bearing down on me – Bearing down on me

Look around; tell me, what do you see? Pain and hurt and agony
If you’re looking for security, You should be on your knees – On your knees

Praise the One – Who made heaven and earth,
Gave sight to the blind – Shed His blood for our sins
Praise the One – Who walked on the water,
Received into heaven, and He’s coming again, Praise the One Praise the One

Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh – Ohh Ohhh Ohhh

Breakdown:
Praise the One – Who made heaven and earth,
Gave sight to the blind – Shed His blood for our sins
Praise the One – Who walked on the water,
Received into heaven, and He’s coming again… Praise the One Praise the One

You are Wonderful, Marvelous, Glorious, Powerful, Savior, Almighty God
REPEAT TILL END

David Rives’ New EP Album “Fall Down” Released Today!

Fall Down Album Artwork 9flat RGB (Large) (2)

Dear Friends,

Today, I am so happy to bring you all a special announcement! As you know, we have been tremendously blessed over the past year to have the weekly TV program “Creation in the 21st Century”, and to have completed several new DVD projects. We had the opening of the Creation Superstore, and the official founding of the Creation Club with AMAZING response. But also, in my spare time, I have continued to write inspirational praise songs, following my first music album.

Well, today is the official release of some of my new songs on an EP album!
I hope it is a blessing to everyone who listens. So much work was put into this album, and I had a ton of support from the best…

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE FALL DOWN ALBUM IN THE CREATION SUPERSTORE

It was mixed by Ainslie Grosser (Aaron Shust, Matt Redman, Laura Story, Big Daddy Weave) and mastered by Bob Boyd (Building 429, Steven Curtis Chapman). They did a wonderful job on the record!

The fourth song is titled: “Lead Me” and was especially dear to my heart. I wanted to bring an extra special element to this song, and was blessed to have a choir of voices join me on the last half for a moving congregational style sound. THANK YOU to everyone involved in this project!

God Bless,
David
