We Give To You, O God
We give to you, O God, The Bridge Church
We give to you, everyone who
Listens to a sermon
Watches a service
Attends a gathering
Visits this site
Reads the newsletter
Sees our social media
Gives financial support
Serves this community
Wants the best for this family
Places their membership here
Communes with us
Affirms the truth of Scripture
Longs to be sanctified
Pleads in prayer on our behalf, and
Leads with conviction.
We give to you, O Lord, everyone who has
Tried to cause turmoil
Sought to make church about themselves
Stood against the good work you began in us
Resisted you growing them up
Striven after spiritual milk instead of meat
Belittled our leaders
Gossipped about a brother or sister
Put up barriers to needed change
Closed their eyes to what you're doing
Covered their ears to your voice
Ripped Scripture out of context, and
Broken fellowship with us.
We give to you, O Lord, everyone and everything.
We give you our whole selves, Lord.
In that, God, we ask only for more of you.
We want more of you, God.
And, so, we give everyone and everything we have to you.
