Praise

Let’s raise our voice in praise of God above

With mighty congregations full of joy!

As we give thanks our hearts are full of love

For all the awesome works our Lord employ!

O God, You implement Your perfect plan,

Your Holy voice creating everything

To manifest redeeming sinful man

Through Jesus Christ our Savior, Lord and King!

Your Grace is such that we do not deserve;

O God, how marvelous are all Your ways!

With all our hearts and minds we gladly serve

And offer our whole lives in humble praise!

Let’s sing and shout devotion to our God!

Let’s raise the roof of worship and applaud!

~~~~~~~~~~~

I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart;

I will show forth all thy marvelous works.

Psalm 9:1 KJV

2-1-14 Children of God

child of god 01

Although we came from parents in the flesh

In truth we are creations, orphan-born;

As mortal beings, while we breathe we’re fresh

But then we die and turn to dust to mourn.

Yet Jesus came and set the record straight:

He took our sins and on the cross He died;

He died for you and me, both small and great

Returning three days later to abide.

If we have faith in Jesus Christ as King

Believing fast that He’s our Savior dear,

We are adopted by our God to sing

As children bound for Heaven now so near.

By faith in Jesus, God’s our Father now.

By faith we walk like Christ; He’ll show us how.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For you are all the children of God

by faith in Jesus Christ.

Galatians 3:26 KJV

12-17-14 Hands Up!

praise

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King,

Surrendering my will to You above!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing

Eternal hymns of  glory, thanks and love!

And while I live Your presence fills my heart,

Directing every word that I should say!

Your Holy Spirit’s here, it won’t depart!

Thank God for You, my Savior, every way!

To me You are the way, the truth, the life,

The perfect Lamb that gave Your life for me!

The world may try to blind me with its strife,

But You just touch my eyes and I can see!

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thus will I bless thee while I live:

I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Psalm 63:4 KJV

HALLELUJAH!

Praise

Let ev’rything within you praise the Lord!

Lift up your voice and worship Him with song!

The universe will join with one accord,

Until the stars themselves can sing along!

Thank God for giving you His constant grace,

Then fill your lungs with air and shout with glee!

Your love for Him will shine upon your face;

Your feet will want to dance, so set them free!

The atoms of your being spin and sing!

Let love ignite the passion of your sound,

As all that is within you call Him King

And joy shouts HALLELUJAH all around!

Make melody and sing with all you’ve got

And praise the Lord for all that He has wrought!

I will sing and make melody with all my being!

Psalm 108:1 ESV
