06. Call to Worship

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman


We come to your mountain
The hill of the Lord we would ascend
And journey into your holy place
To feast in your presence
And bring our devotions to you, God
We come as a kingdom of your priests

We're climbing up the mountain of the Lord
Towards your holy place
And every step is praise
Encountering the glory of your name
Your throne of holiness
The wonders of your grace

Come, come let us worship
Come let us recognize what a sacred thing we do
Come, let us bow down
God, as we bring our hearts
Let them please the heart of you

We enter your sanctuary
To minister at your holy throne
Where thousands of angels joyfully sing

Behind the Song:
'I donít usually plan to write a song on a particular subject, but this song is an exception. Iíve been brought up on several different models of choosing worship song, and in all of them the first stage a 'Call to Worship.' So I thought Iíd have a go at writing a song which did that Ė using Psalm 95 to call ourselves to worship. I hope it gives a tiny sense of the incredible event that occurs when we enter into worship.

I ended up using little bits of appropriate imagery from all over the bible; 'We come to your mountain, the hill of the Lord we would ascend', 'We enter your sanctuary' etc etc. The point of the song being to remind ourselves what a sacred thing we do when we come together and approach the Lord in song.' - Matt Redman
