But God is my King from long ago;
he brings salvation on the earth.
Age to age, You are God,
the One who reigns over all the earth.
Salvation is found in no one else
and comes from no other source.
We praise Your name
with our words and songs;
We exalt Your name
with our deeds and lives.
As we gather together before You
may You receive the glory You are due
and change us to look more like You.
May our lives become living sacrifices of praise
to You, our Lord and King,
that the nations might see and know
You are God.
