Lyrics to The House of God
Take us higher up, draw us deeper still,
Further into your heart, O Lord.
Make us living light, set us on a hill,
Shine forth through us, O radiant Son.
 
Take us higher up, draw us deeper still,
Further into your heart, O Lord.

Make us living light, set us on a hill,
Shine forth through us, O radiant Son.

 
Make my heart your throne, O Lord,
A dwelling place for the light of God.
Join me to your temple, Lord,
That all might see the light in me
And lift their hearts to your house of glory!
 
Take us higher up, draw us deeper still,
Further into your heart, O Lord.

Make us living light, set us on a hill,
Shine forth through us, O radiant Son.

 
Once we were no people, Lord,
Now we are one in the house of God.
Living stones now joined in Christ;
For we have seen your temple brings
The hopeless heart to the hope of glory!
 
Take us higher up, draw us deeper still,
Further into your heart, O Lord.

Make us living light, set us on a hill,
Shine forth through us, O radiant Son.

 
For we are a chosen race,
A shining light set upon the hill,
A holy nation, royal priests.
May we proclaim your wondrous name,
Until the day when you come in glory!
 
Take us higher up, draw us deeper still,
Further into your heart, O Lord.

Make us living light, set us on a hill,
Shine forth through us, O radiant Son.
