Lift His Lovely Name

In my life Jesus Christ is Lord
He’s everything to me and even more
He took away my sin
I owe my life to Him
Because the depth I came from I abhorred

I’m also confident of this one thing
No matter what my future life will bring
He is my confidant
My past is dead and gone
And He will never bring up anything

What mercy He gives me from day to day
That worry of my past is washed away
I’ll lift His lovely name
With songs of highest praise
I’ll follow in His plan all the way

Your Voice

When I hear your voice I tremble
At the glorious sound of grace
You created all things
You can do anythingpraise
I listen and give you praise

When I hear your voice I worship
At the wonderful words you speak
The bring mercy to me
As I listen with glee
It is your word that humbly I seek

Speak to me Lord
Speak to my heart
Speak to my spirit deep within
Speak to me Lord
Breathe on my life
Let me bring glory to you
Let me bring praise to you
Let me bring my life to you
A living sacrifice

When I hear your voice I listen
To the sweet words you’d say to me
Each word full of life’
Each command a delight
Let your words come and rescue me

As I hear you whisper softly in my hear
I proclaim your word for all to hear

Speak to me Lord
Speak to my heart
Speak to my spirit deep within
Speak to me Lord
Breathe on my life
Let me bring glory to you
Let me bring praise to you
Let me bring my life to you
A living sacrifice

Above Everything

Some people think with their pocketbook
Hoping they’ll outdo all others
Some people always have sex on their minds
And have strange worlds to discover

Some people trust that science is right
In matters of origin
Others trust wild politicians
Filled with lies many times again

My ideology stands on the Lord
Jesus Christ is His name
Everything He did and said was grace
He forgave us and died in shame

When this world is over and all’s said and done
He’ll stand alone as the King
So I choose today to serve Him as Lord
Because He’s above everything

Through the Storm

I come to you down on my knees
Hoping you will hear my plea
Ease my suff’ring ease my pain
So I can praise you once again

You speak to me so plain and clear
Making sure that I will hear
When you praise me through the storm
I will rescue you from harm

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

I rise up from my knees in haste
I lift my voice in grateful praise
Your word has spoken to my heart
From your praise I’ll not depart

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
Praise to you I sing

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

About Popularity

In our United States we have a grand and glorious time
Electing those who make our laws and hope they will do fine
It seems that popularity chooses who it will be
And that is not always the best when it comes to you and me

There once was quite a teacher who seemed to change the rules
He came against the leaders as He tried to show them truth
But they rejected Him and hung Him high upon a tree
There He took the sins of His constituency

Bet three days later He arose the hope for all mankind
If we will give our life to Him His peace and joy we’ll find
I hope that you will pray today and make Him Lord of all
For then He will show you the truth and fill you with His call

This Vessel

I lift my cup to you Lord
This vessel that is me
I ask that you will fill it
With what I’m meant to be
So far my life has wandered
This clay must be renewed
I ask you to reform it
So I am more like you

You know what I was made for
I want to fit your plan
Please start this vessel over
And mold me with your hands
Make me a humble servant
Who’s filled with your desire
Then let your Spirit guide me
To be a holy fire

Break me Lord
Make me yours
Fill me up
So mercy pours
All that come
Near to me
May they always
Your love see

I yield myself to you Lord
My body soul and mind
I seek to do your will Lord
To all who I can find
May your grace guide my path
And flow to everyone
Once you have finished molding
And this vessel is redone

Break me Lord
Mold me new
That I might be
More like you
Cause me Lord
To yield my life
Make me a living
Sacrifice
May my life
Always be
All for you Lord
Not for me

My Inspiration

I once had friends who partied long
And I was glad to join them
Without a care
My life was there
From day to day we lived a whim

When trouble came to our small town
I was guilty by association
Everyone knew
Me and my crew
Were lost in our imagination

Today I’ve put aside these ways
My life is full of Jesus
I praise His name
I’m not the same
I know that He’s my Savior

When people see me know
There is association
With things of God
And of His word
He is my inspiration

Greater Higher Stronger

My God is greater
Greater than all kings on earth
Greater than the stars above
Greater than the ocean waves
He’s greater

My God is higher
Higher than the mountain peaks
Higher than the billowed clouds
Higher than the eagle soars
He’s higher

My God is stronger
Stronger than the lion’s roar
Stronger than the Northwest wind
Stronger then the mighty oak
He’s stronger

There is nothing that can stop Him
Nothing overtakes Him
Nothing overcomes Him
He’s greater

There is nothing that’s above Him
Nothing that can top Him
Nothing overshadows Him
He’s higher

There is nothing that can catch Him
Nothing can subdue Him
Nothing stands against Him
He’s stronger

What a mighty God I serve
He’s the one who rescues me
He’s the one who calms my fears
He’s the one who holds my hand
He alone delivers me
He alone gives life to me
He alone is always near
What a mighty God

Greater higher stronger
Than anything on this earth
Yet He listens to my prayers
They move Him

Greater higher stronger
Than all of His creation
Yet He hears my heartfelt cries
The move Him

Greater higher stronger is our God
Greater higher stronger is our God
Greater higher stronger
Greater higher stronger
Greater higher stronger is our God

Three at Once

The weekends always get me
I can’t seem to catch up
I try to do it all
But often just mess up

And now we have a puppy
Bandit is his name
He’s like a little child
Needs attention all the way.

This puts me in a different world
A different classification
To take the time to do the prompt
I did not make accomadation

So now I have to do all three
It’s quite intimidating
But I will get the job done
Wow it’s quite invigorating!

Hallelujah I Sing

I come to you with lifted hands
And with my voice sing grateful praise
For all that have done
Through Christ your risen Son

God of ages it’s my plea
To come to know you passionately
With appreciation your love
Through the worship of my heart

Hallelujah I sing with all my soul
Hallelujah I sing with all my voice
Hallelujah I sing
And I greatly rejoice
For all you’ve done for me

Hallelujah I sing with all my soul
Hallelujah I sing with all my voice
For your mercy and grace
I will always rejoice
God of ages you’re my love
