Stand In Awe

Stand in Awe
Bret Hesla © 2000

Refrain:

Stand in awe of the one who hears the cry of the poor
Stand in awe of the one who will provide
Stand in awe of the one who hears the cry of the poor
For they shall eat and be satisfied.

1. Praise god, the Spirit moving over the earth.
Let ev’ery heart give honor to the Servant of Peace.
Let the great assembly praise the Friend of the Poor.
Let us declare the saving deeds God has done.

2. How sweet to gaze upon the rich and the fair.
And how seductive is the mighty voice of the strong.
But the wretched and disfigured now are empowered.
Let us declare the saving deeds God has done.

3. Who’ll not despise the poverty of the poor
Who comes to meet the_oppressed.
Whose back will never be turned.
This is now the one who moves in every land
Let us declare the saving deeds God has done.

4. Let all the ends of earth be watered in joy.
Let all the fam’lies of the nations meet at the well.
where the thirsty shall drink deep and be satisfied
Let us declare the saving deeds God has done.
