Words and music by Pat Keady
From the heights of heavens gates to the groan of prisoners chains
From the light of children’s eyes to the hearts that ache with pain
The oppressed hands shall be raised and the hungry mouths shall sing
Light breaks open on blind eyes and the poor are rich in Grace.
Praise awaits You as the dawn All creation sings this song of salvation
Sing a new song to God our King He is worth it – He is worth it!
Sing a new song, our God proclaim He deserves it – He deserves it!
From the rich and poor in faith to the young and old in age
All the healthy and the sick one voice rises from the page.
Praise awaits You as the dawn All Your children sing this song of redemption…
For You broke the chains of injustice and You set the prisoners free!
Sin, your sting has been extracted Death has no more victory!
All the rich in their palaces of gold blush before Your holy face
All the princes of the earth bow down to kiss the feet of Grace
Praise comes, Praise comes...
