Praise and Worship

I Magnify Your Name

I come before your throne
You are God and God alone
Lifted high in majesty
Your love surrounding me
Over everything I’ve got
You are the only one
Who comforts me
Who sets me free
I will lift my hands in praise to you
I will lift my voice to worship you
Lifted high
I magnify your name
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

Be Glorified

Be Glorified, Lord of all the Heavens
Be Glorified, Lord of all the earth
Be Glorified, You alone are worthy of my praise

Be Magnified, Lord of all the Heavens
Be Magnified, Lord of all the earth
Be Magnified, You alone are worthy of my praise

I will lift my hands toward heaven, I will worship you alone
I will bow my head in reverence at your throne
I will lift my voice in praises to the Lord of all the earth
Who can ever comprehend your awesome worth

All The Glory To You

We come into your house today
Into your presence with our praise
We lift our voices high
You’re name we magnify
All the glory to you
All the glory to you

Exalted to the highest place
We long to gaze into your face
Our worship fills the air
You fill the atmosphere
All the glory to you
All the glory to you
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
All the glory to you

What a Mighty God We Serve

What a mighty God we serve
What a mighty God we serve
Lord of heaven and of earth
What a mighty God we serve

What a holy God we serve
What a holy God we serve
All our worship He deserves
What a holy God we serve

Jesus, Lord of all creation
Master of all peoples
Seated on the throne of heaven
Jesus, Savior of all sinners
Delivers us from evil
Praise and honor to your name

Lift Him Up

He said if I be lifted up
I will draw all men to me
From their sin I’ll set them free
They’ll gain life eternally

So let us worship and adore
Let us lift His holy name
Let us give Him all the praise
Lift Him up with voices raised

Lift Him up above your pain
Lift Him up above your doubt
Lift Him up drive all fears out
Lift Him up and give a shout

A shout praise for victory
A shout of praise He set you free
A shout of praise for all to see
That Jesus Christ is Lord

This Is My Lord

A light into the darkness
A shelter from the storm
A river in the desert
This is my Lord

A healer to the hurting
A comfort when I mourn
A hope for all the hopeless
This is my Lord

A way when there is no way
A still small voice to warn
A peace in time of trouble
This is my Lord

A shaper of my future
A mender when I’m torn
A teacher of the righteous
This is my Lord

A friend when I am lonely
A truth when I am scorned
A rock and firm foundation
This is my Lord

A thousand years from now
He is who I’ll adore
My Savior and redeemer
This is my Lord

I Sing His Praise

I sing the praises of my God Almighty
I sing the praises of the risen Lamb
I sing the praises of the true redeemer
I sing the praises of the great I Am
I sing the praises of the God of mercy
I sing the praises of the God of grace
I sing the praises of the Lord Jehovah
I sing His praise. I sing His praise

When I was going through cancer, His praise was on my lips. As I lay on my hospital bed, weakened by a stem cell transplant, I would lift my voice up to praise Him in the middle of the night. The nurses just didn’t quite get why I could praise God when I had cancer. But I had my reasons – lots of them. First ands foremost, He saved me. He called to me when I least expected it and I answered that call. I was far away from Him, basking in the dull glow of sin, thinking I was OK. But the pr3eacher that night convinced me I was not OK, that I was headed for hell;, a terrible place I decided I did not want to go to. I raised my hand for salvation and before I left Iowa on that vacation I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Right there, that is enough to praise Him every second of every day. I don’t need any other reason to give Him praise.

Now he daily gives me reason to praise Him. I have a wonderful family, a blessed life and so many things that God has brought my way. I have a million reasons to praise Him. I give Him praise all the time. In the morning, just before the dawn, I praise Him. In the heat of the day I praise Him. As the sun sets at night, I praise Him. In every circumstance, every trial and every trouble, my praise goes up to Him because I know He is with me. Any Christian who does not praise Him is missing the mark. We were made to praise Him, have fellowship with Him and be devoted to Him. He is a faithful, righteous, gracious and merciful master who loves us more than we can fathom. Give Him praise today!

Psalm 147:1 King James Version
147 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.

Worthy Are You My Lord

As I wake up and rise out of my bed
I remember the words you’ve often said
You said you’d be with me everyday
All the way

So I lift up my hands above my head
I remember the words I’ve often said
I will take time to lift to you my praise
All my praise. All my praise

Worthy are you my Lord
Worthy of all honor and glory
Worthy are you my Lord
Worthy of all power and praise

Each day passes faster than the last
As I listen close to all that you have asked
I will follow you every single day
All the way. All the way


Not a day goes by that I will not worship you
Not a night goes by without a word of praise
I lift my hands to heaven
I lift my voice up high
All of creation testifies


If you’d like to hear how this goes, I recorded a rough version on my Church Facebook Page  here is the link:

I Will Praise Him

I will praise Him
I will lift my hands and lift my voice
And I will praise Him
Not because of anything He’s done
Not because He healed me
or because He delivered me
or because He provides for me
or because He protects me
I will praise Him because He is
He is the creator of all things
He is the maker and placer of the stars
He is the master of all that lives
He has a plan designed for all of the universe
and for every animal
and for every person
even me
I don’t deserve a thing He does for me
I don’t deserve anything He has already done for me
I don’t deserve the plan He has for me
He does it all because He loves me
So I will praise Him
Not for anything
I’ll just praise Him
In every situation
I will praise Him
Yes, I will praise Him

I read Psalm 68:3-4 this morning and it is the inspiration for this free verse poem. What it says is “Let the righteous rejoice” It does not give a reason that we should rejoice. Just that we should rejoice. We should not need a reason to praise Him. We should just rejoice, day in and day out, in good or bad, in hunger or sorrow, in sickness or pain. These are all times we should praise Him. It’s easy to praise Him when things are going well. But the true Christian should never have to wait until things are good before they praise Him. They should praise Him despite the circumstances. If you truly love Him and are devoted to Him, there should never be a time that you are not rejoicing! There should never be a time you are not praising Him

Psalm 150:6 KJV
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord

Alive In Me

Holy is He
Holy is He
Sweet Lamb of God
Risen Indeed
High and lifted up
For all the world to see
Jesus Christ alive in me

Worthy is He
Worthy is He
Lion of Judah
Victory indeed
Seated on the throne
For all eternity
Jesus Christ alive in me.

There is none like Him. No one came before Him. No one else helped in the creation of our world. No one else formed man with His own hands. No one else breathed life into that man. No one else left His throne in heaven to come to earth as a man. No on else was beaten, bruised, mocked, spit on, received a crown of thorns and was crucified for the sins of the world. No one has ever lived who has risen from the dead. No one has had a larger affect on all mankind. No one has left the legacy He has. No one has touched as many lives as He has. No one else can claim the throne in heaven. No one else will be coming back with His armies. No one else will judge the world. No one else will rule forever and ever. Jesus is the only One.

He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He is the bright and morning star and the sweet Rose of Sharon. He is the wonderful counselor, the prince of peace and the everlasting Father. He is my Savior, my Redeemer, my deliverer, my provider, my protector and my Lord. He will never leave me or forsake me. He will dry my tears and ease my fears. He will bring peace in the storm and rivers in the desert. He is my rest and my release. He does all things for my good and he turns every trial into triumph. He forgives me and washes me with His love. He is Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.

John 1:29 King James Version (KJV)
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
