I Lift Up My Hands
(words and music by Israel Houghton & Ricardo Sanchez)
(as sung by Israel & New Breed)
(as arranged by Long Fingers)

Verse:
Father I love You and my heart is filled with desire to see
Your power and glory, cover the earth as the waters clothe the sea.
I am surrounded by the fortress of God,
totally surrendered to You.

Chorus:
I lift up my hands standing unashamed.
I worship You Father, exalting Your name.
You've captured my heart now my life has changed,
I lift up my hands (2x).

Vamp:
I lift up my
hands (3x).
