Lead sheet (piano/vocal chart) for the song “We Proclaim Your Name” as performed by NAOBC Worship.
We were lost and without hope,
We had turned to our own ways.
We ignored the fear of God,
And our throats were open graves.
In the kindness of your mercy,
From the riches of Your grace,
You sent down Your Son from heaven;
Crooked paths He has made straight.
As You sent Your only Son
To release us from our chains,
So you’re sending us to preach
Of the glorious exchange:
“Jesus Christ made sin for sinners,
Though He never once knew sin;
Now His righteousness is given
To all who trust in Him.”
By Your blood we are delivered
From the curse and sting of death
And are brought into Your everlasting rest!
We proclaim Your name, oh Jesus,
For Your name alone can save!
All who cry to You are rescued from the grave!
Running swift upon the mount,
Oh, how beautiful the feet
Of the ones who lift their voice,
Of the ones who publish peace.
Unashamed of Your great power
To save all who call on You,
We press on, held by Your Spirit,
‘Til all hear of this good news.
So we go to ev’ry nation,
To the ones who’ve never heard,
To declare the saving power of Your Word!
To those lost and bound in darkness
We must shine Your gospel light,
Making known to all the way, the truth, the life!
We proclaim to all the hope in Jesus Christ!
