Story behind the song
I was contemplating why I worship, and what I would say to Jesus if He was standing before me. I began with a simple strum pattern and wrote this song in about 1/2 hour. I tweaked it a bit but almost all of it is as originally written. It became very popular in a local church during the worship service. It was easy to teach it to the band and praise team because it's a very simple chord progression. The challenge was for the singers. The words come very fast and direct. You need to very much plan your next breathe in the chorus.
Lyrics
Verse 1: I've come to worship and to praise Your holy name* To sing and dance before You, to thank You for Your grace* With a shout, I will proclaim* Jesus Christ will reign forever!* Verse 2: Lord You're my Redeemer, my Savior and my Friend.* The font of living water, who fills me from within* I bow my head before Your throne and I proclaim* Jesus Christ will reign forever! * Verse 3: Though You are the mighty one Your mercy knows no bounds.* Redeemed me out of darkness I was lost but now I'm found* I lift my hands, receive my offering* Let Your glory fill this place* Chorus: Oh I remember from where I came* It was through Your loving mercy that I came to know Your name* You bathed me in the blood of Jesus and took away my shame* The reflections of Your glory, brightly light my way* Though I walk through shadows even darkness, Ill ever seek Your face* Lord Jesus, You'll reign forevermore!
