Thanks to distribution by New Way Publishing this 1988 album has now been released in the UK.It's worth the discerning album buyer's scrutiny. The production, despite obvious limitations on the recording budget, is crisply contemporary while on some tracks Bob sounds quite uncannily like Michael Card. Songs are excellent, with some having already filtered through to British church praise times.

Such fantastic song that is, but short of guitar chords that can help us to worship intimately to Abba of Yeshua. Can anyoner assist in furnishing the chords?

I am reposting Sparkle's post - the Sacrifice Lyrics...

Lyrics for Sacrifice - Bob Fitts

Oh this must be the hardest hill I've ever climbed
For I must sacrifice you promised son of mine
And so I go to worship with you by my side
And trust a sacrifice He will provide

And though I cherish you, I must now offer you
To him who is the giver of all good things
And though I cherish you, I will not offer you
For surely He could raise you up again
(second time) For surely He will raise you up again

Here on this alter Father I lay all my dreams
And offer back to you this child you've given me
Oh son you must believe He's called us to obey
And by His love He'll make a better way

O Abraham, O Abraham
Now that I know you fear my name
Withhold your hand
O Abraham, O faithful man
You're only son, He's not the one
Behold the ram, Behold the Lamb

It must have been the hardest thing He's ever done
When God the Father sacrificed his only son
The one that He most cherished gave His life away
And by His love He made a better way

Chorus 2
And so I cherish you, And so I honor you
For truly you're the giver of all good things
And so I cherish you, and so I honor you
Your sacrifice is now the king of kings

Chorus 3:
Jehova Jireh, he has provided
The sacrifice of love no man could ever pay
And what He requires of you and me
Even the hardest thing
Your blood, O Christ, your sacrifice gives me strength to obey.

Depois de Moisés, que abriu o caminho para o Seu povo, Deus chamou Abraão para pai de muitos. Este ofereceu obediente seu filho da promessa ao sacrifício. Mas não havia suficiencia espiritual e , portanto, Deus enviou Seu Filho Amado para o resgate de todos nós, de tempos passados à posteridade, não havendo ninguém que reconheça o Cordeiro que pagou com seu sangue o nosso resgate. Esta canção com este vídeo remete-nos a poderosa ação de Deus. Parabéns Bob Fitts, Deus continua falado a Seu povo através do ministério confiado a você.

I can't begin to say how much the song, "Sacrifice" blessed my life. Yes, I agree with Jacob Odhiambo that many of his songs are like, God drafted the lyrics and placed them in Bob's heart; definitely touching the nations.
