3-25-15 God, You are Holy

holy

O Lord, my God, You’re holy, good and just;

There is not any wickedness in You.

You have no room for those who say they must,

No matter the excuse or point of view.

Sometime You do permit a sin to flower,

Although there is no pleasure on Your part,

To magnify Your Mercy, Grace and Power

To bring us to salvation in Your heart.

You loved us though we once were sinners lost;

That’s why You sent Your Son, a sinless man,

Becoming sin itself, His life the cost

To bring about Your perfect, steadfast plan.

There is no evil that can dwell with You.

With gratitude I worship You anew!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:

neither shall evil dwell with thee.

Psalm 5:4 KJV

9-24-14 You, O Lord

Prayer-man

O Lord, You are the source of all that’s good;

Your good both spans the stars and in our blood.

When I reach out and seek You as I should

Your goodness flows with Mercy like a flood.

Forgiveness is not hard for You to do,

According to the riches of Your Grace.

No sooner asked than had when I am through

The sin that holds me back in ev’ry case.

And when I need You, Lord, You’re always there;

The fullness of Your love sustains my heart.

I always feel Your presence ev’rywhere,

And all my needs are met right from the start.

For You, O Lord, I get down on my knees.

For You, O Lord, I only seek to please.

For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,

abounding in steadfast love

to all who call upon you.

                Psalm 86:5 ESV
