Enter In

short intro
~
God so loved the world that he gave
his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in him
should have everlasting life.
Now there is no condemnation
to all who will trust Jesus Christ.
He shed his blood to save us,
and in him we now have new life.
~
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise,
for he has poured us out a blessing.
He has saved us by his grace.
~
Where two or three gather in his name,
our Lord's in the midst of them.
And we are called to worship and serve him,
'till Jesus calls us home.
He's given the words of life
to take all around the world.
Bring good news to all nations.
His commission we must fulfill.
~
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise,
for he has poured us out a blessing.
He has saved us by his grace.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise,
for he has poured us out a blessing.
He has saved us by his grace.
~

He has saved us by his grace.

Many years ago, my daughter, Christie, and I wrote the music for the original version of this song together, sitting at the piano. It was one of my husband, Brian's favorites, and was meant to have a celtic or middle eastern sound, but blue grass was the closest I could find for a style in Band In A Box.
The song has gone through some changes over the years, including a rewrite of the lyrics in the verses, so I'm not even sure how close it is to the original!
There is a recorded version on one of my cds, but the style is a little different, and for some reason the playback feature doesn't work, so I thought I'd make an instrumental version too.
