His Blessings Flow

When it comes to the mercy of my God
I don’t know where to start
He gave His only beloved Son
To purify my heart

When I think of the grace that he bestows
The list grows rather long
Day after day His blessings flow
And to me they belong

And when I think of the patience He and with me
I don’t know where to begin
I was running from Him for oh so long
I’m sure it was running thin

But He loved me then and He loves me know
And He’ll love me forevermore
I can  only lift up my heart and sing
To my precious, wondrous Lord

 

In response to the daily prompt Thin

Give Them Away

He gave to me mercy
So I could be free
He gave to me grace
So my eyes could see
He gave to me joy
It gushes in me
On top of all that
He gave me His peace

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must
Give to others what He’s given me

He gave to me hope
Now heaven is mine
He gave me forgiveness
He’s good and He’s kind
He gave me His love
So faithful and true
He gave me all this
So I’d give it to you

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must
Give to others what He’s given me

These things that He gave me
These gifts of His love
Should flow out of me to touch you
These things should give life
To all who know me
If His will I’ve decided to do
They’re not for hoarding
Or holding on to
I need to give then away
When I follow Him
With all that I am
I’ll give them away every day

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must

He Covered Me

I will not be denied
The blessings of the Lord
He’s laid them out for all the world to see
I’ll seek His will each day
I’ll draw close to His side
Then I’ll become what he wants me to be

Mercy flowing freely
For His mercy covered me
I’ll always see the best in everyone
Grace that covers mistakes
For His grace has covered me
Forgiving and forgetting those things done

Joy that never ceases
For His joy has covered me
No matter what the test I still feel blessed
Peace that calms my spirit
For His peace has covered me
The storms of life all pass me as I rest

Hope for life eternal
For His hope has covered me
Nothing can distract me from my goal
Love that knows no bounds
For His love covered me
The love of God will fill my heart and soul

Then when the day is over
When the sun is settling down
I will know that all these blessings guide my life
I’ll climb into my bed
Then I’ll lift my praise to God
For keeping me attracted to His light

I will not be denied
The blessings of the Lord
He promised them for all the world to see
You too can claim them now
There close within your grasp
Just give your all each day
Make Him your only way
Then all these blessings will be yours to keep

Multiplied  

I gave the Lord my sorrow
Everything that hurt
I left it all in Jesus loving hands
He gave me peace to soothe my soul
A thousand times more grace 
Now I find rest where trouble used to land 

I gave the Lord my weakness 
My will would always lose 
I yielded up myself to find His way 
He said He had a plan for me
A thousand times more grace 
Now His strength guides me every single day

Multiplied blessings
Multiplied grace 
Multiplied mercy 
Multiplied praise 
Whatever I give Him 
He gives me more 
Reversing my sorrow
Releasing His joy 

I gave the Lord my passions
They’d fail me every time
I turned my heart completely to love Him 
He told of His love for me
A thousand times more grace 
My passion now is only found in Him

The more of me I give Him 
The more of Him He gives 
The more I lose myself
The more His Spirit lives 
I cannot out give Him 
He gives His all to me
The more I love my Savior 
The more like Him I’ll be

Multiplied blessings
Multiplied grace 
Multiplied mercy 
Multiplied praise 
Whatever I give Him 
He gives me more 
Reversing my sorrow
Releasing His joy 

Don’t Delay

Do you think it strange
That I would spend all my days
Giving Him praise
With all of my heart

If you could believe
What the Lord’s done for me
Then you would see
That my love won’t depart

He took my sins as black as night
And made me white as snow
He took my sickness and disease
And made me fully whole
He took my sorrow and my fear
And filled my heart with joy
He took my doubt and left His faith
His love has overflowed

He changed my trembling into peace
He showered me with His dear grace
His mercy forgave my disgrace
Oh what a friend He is
Oh what a friend He is

I hope you now see
What the Lord has done for me
Because His love is real
And it’s for you today

If you will believe
Then you can truly receive
All that’s He’s done for me
Don’t delay
There’s a way
Be blessed today
And give Him praise

He Longs To Hear

I often seek to hear God’s voice
To guide me day by day
He comes and gently speaks to me
Showing me the way

He spoke before the dawn today
His words were very clear
He told me that most every day
My voice He longs to hear

He longs to hear me giving thanks
For all that he has done
From the Spirits leading in my life
To the giving of His Son
Each day He makes the sun to rise
And the stars to shine at night
Oh that we would thank the Lord
For the blessings in our lives

He longs to hear me praying
For the many that I know
Who need a touch from Him today
His power He wants to show
All week I told those close to me
That I would pray for them
He longs to have me take the time
To lift those prayers to Him

He longs to hear me praise Him
With all my heart and soul
To lift His name above all names
His glory to be told
With mighty anthems raising high
Our Hallelujahs ring
Lift up His praise for all to hear
As His great name we sing

Jesus mighty Son of God
All power and praise to you
Glory in the highest
I lift my arms to you
Praise and adoration
With all I have within
Exalted is your name oh Lord
My God, my everything

My All, My Everything

Now I lay me down to sleep
I know my Lord is close to me
If I should wake before I die
I’ll lift my voice up to the sky

His praises will I lift so high
To waft up to where He resides
Upon the throne as King of Kings
He is my all, my everything

He is my joy when sorrow comes
He is my peace amid the storms
He is my refuge from all foes
He is my calm in midst of woes

He is my hope when hope seems gone
He is my strength when I’m not strong
He is my healer when my health fades
He is my guide to light my way

There’s so much more He is to me
His blessings fall abundantly
I will gladly shout and sing
He is my all, my everything

Now I must rest my weary head
I lay it down upon my bed
I’ll dream about my Lord and King
He is my all, my everything

I Give You Praise

I give you praise
For morning sun
For birds and bees
For rocks and trees
I give you praise
For all you’ve done for me

I give you praise
For fam’ly cheer
For daughters near
For soul mate dear
I give you praise
For all you’ve given me

I give you praise
For saving me
For keeping with
For loving me
I give you praise
For what you do for me

Every day
I give you praise
My heart ablaze
My hands are raised
With words of praise
I lift your name
For who you are my Lord

I give you praise
The highest praise
I lift your name
Above all names
I give you praise
You are the King of Kings

All Smiles

I’m all smiles
I know my Savior loves me
I’m all smiles
I know He will take care of me
All smiles
I know that in my time of need
When fear sets in and I lose peace
He will be there to comfort me
And make me smile again

I never have to worry
For the Lord is on my side
My trust in Him survives the biggest storm
When I am in a hurry
And the answers don’t arrive
I can feel the safety of His loving arms

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His mercy covers every time I fall
He never leaves me blue
He cheers me so I’ll sing
He turns my every sorrow to a smile

I’m all smiles
I know my Savior loves me
I’m all smiles
I know He will take care of me
All smiles
I know that in my time of need
When fear sets in and I lose peace
He will be there to comfort me
And make me smile again

In the heat of midday sun
Or the darkness of the night
He reassures me with His gentle voice
And when the day is done
I see the stars so bright
Reminding me He’s there with His grace

When my smile turns upside down
When peace just can’t be found
My life seems out of place
I cry to see His face

He comes with tender care
And pulls me from despair
I can no longer frown
My smile has turned around

I’m all smiles
I know my Savior loves me
I’m all smiles
I know He will take care of me
All smiles
I know that in my time of need
When fear sets in and I lose peace
He will be there to comfort me
And make me smile again

So They Might

You are the potter, I am the clay
Mold me and shape me after your way
Make me a witness to others today
So they might see you, I pray

You are the vine and I am a branch
Teach me, dear Lord,  to follow your plan
Help me to witness throughout this land
So they might feel your hand

You are the shepherd and I am your sheep
Guide me to all your commandments keep
Help me to reach out to others needs
So they might know the love they reap

You are the Master, I follow you
Hoping that, daily, your love will show through
And you’ll get the praise for all you do
The glory belongs to you

I’ll lift your praises up high every day
I’ll give you the glory in every way
That others will come to know and be saved
This I will fervently pray
