As To Heaven, Our Hands Raise
by Michael Doyle

In our Christian legacy
Jesus is our first priority
He is before all other things
And He is for whom we sing

In the beginning was the Word
Before any other thought occurred
Until He came to dwell among us
Giving of Himself for us because

It is by His purpose
And it is for His purpose
As we take our part in History
We must live for His glory

God is the page and the book
There is nowhere else to look
For God is the first and the last
His is the compass and the mast

You cannot separate treasure and heart
God is the center and every other part
Comfortable in our every routine
God is the truth of all we could mean

In this, we live to make the difference
Holding our Lord in greatest reverence
Held as a catalyst to open up our eyes
Giving our love to God without surprise

Knowing that our all belongs to Him
As we glorify Him through praise and hymn
Grace and mercy know the best of our praise
As to Heaven, our hands raise
