Glorious Indeed

I walked out this morning to a silent peaceful night
Up above my head I saw the stars that shone so bright
The crickets chirping softly sang a tune that let me know
They praised the one who reigned on high and sat upon the throne

And as I walked in wonder I can feel his presence near
The night air was so calm there were many sounds to hear
As I put it all together I just stood in awe
This glorious creation was a testament to God

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

All that I have was given by His grace so undeserved
He saved me from my sin with His mercy and His Word
When I look at the stars I am reminded of the day
That Jesus came and rescued me from all my sinful ways

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

He didn’t have to leave His throne
He didn’t have to save us
He didn’t have to die an ugly death
He did it so we’d know His love
He did it so we’d look above
He did it to have fellowship with us

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

Incredible Love

His love is more than I can know
It reaches inside me
The love He brought from heaven above
The love that set me free
He taught me how to live each day
In love and harmony
Oh that I could demonstrate
His incredible love

His mercy reached my struggling soul
And forgave all of my sin
His grace has blessed abundantly
It flows from deep within
His strength is now my sure defense
I know that I will win
Oh that I could only show
His incredible love

I feel it when I rise each day
‘Til when I face the night
I feel it when I work and play
His love is like a light
It shines on me and gives me joy
I feel His awesome might
All because He gives to me
His incredible love

Love that’s filled with power
Yet it’s sweet and kind
Love that knows no limits
Touching all mankind
Love that shows compassion
Troubled ones He finds
How I want to demonstrate
His incredible love

It’s up to me to tell the world
And show them by my ways
That there’s a God in heaven above
Who cares about their days
They all should know that He is there
To touch their lives today
Oh how I must spread the word
Of His incredible love

What Can I Give

What can I give to Jesus my Lord
Considering He’s given me so much more
All that I have has come from His grace
His mercy touched me in my disgrace

There are 3 things I must daily give
To walk in His presence as long as I live
He gladly accepts these three simple things
So to Him each day I gladly will bring

First I must give Him all of my sin
Turn from it fully and repent within
He will take all of it gladly from me
Then clean my soul and I shall be free

Next I must give Him all of my praise
Lifting my voice to Him with hands upraised
Offering words that exalt His sweet name
A sweet smelling savor of love for His grace

Last I must give Him all of myself
My body, my soul, my mind and all else
There is nothing that I should withhold from Him
He desires to bless me without and within

When I have given these three simple things
Jesus my Savior becomes King of Kings
Lord of my life, I will bow at His throne
Knowing that now my life He does own

Why?

Early Saturday morning
Lightning dazzles the sky
I woke up asking one question
The word on my mind was why

Why do I love God so much
Why does He give me such choice
Why do I love to praise Him
Why did He give me a voice

The answers came rather quickly
As I penned these words today
I’d like to share with you now
And then be on my way

I love Him because of His mercy
And His wonderful grace to me
He found me when I was a sinner
Then He lovingly set me free

He gives me a choice to follow
Or stumble right back to my shame
Just to see if I really love Him
Or if I’ll just make fun of His name

I praise Him for He’s the creator
Nothing equals His majesty
I praise Him for who He is
And all He has done for me

He gave me a voice to tell others
Of my wonderful Savior above
To share with all that I meet
How they can know His great love

Now that He gave me the answers
To the why’s I was having tonight
I think I’ll go back to sleep
And pull the covers up tight

Holy Are You Lord

My God my source
My everything
I lift your name
To you I sing
The highest praise
My heart can raise
I worship you
With highest praise

Hosanna Hosanna
Holy are you Lord
Hosanna Hosanna
Holy are you Lord

I long to see
Your lovely face
To thank you for
Amazing grace
Until that day
I’ll raise my voice
As in your presence
I rejoice

Holy are you
Holy are you
Holy are you Lord
Holy are you
Holy are you
Holy are you Lord

Hosanna Hosanna
Holy are you Lord
Hosanna Hosanna
Holy are you Lord

His Love Will Always Come Through

I sing of the mercy and the grace of Jesus
How He gives them freely and changes my life
My provider my protector my refuge and fortress
My shelter in storm and in darkness my light

I sing of His peace and His joy overflowing
How He gives me hope that fills up my soul
He calms all my doubts and takes worry away
His plan for my future will be evermore

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

I sing of the Spirit He gives me abundant
The Comforter sweet that’s always beside
He teaches me truth and leads me through trouble
In times of decision He is my guide

I can depend on all of these things
No matter what my come or go
His great faithfulness will be my comfort
Everywhere I go

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

The River of Grace

I stood by the banks of the river
The river of God’s great grace
It flowed from His throne in heaven
Right down to the human race

All were invited to enter
This stream of His endless love
His grace was poured out to us all
When He gave His only Son

What an act of mercy
What an act of love
What a mighty God we serve
Who loves us all so much
He created us to praise Him
And to walk with Him each day
I love to stand amid the flow
In the river of His grace

So many souls are searching
For something more in life
They’ve tried all kinds of different ways
But are not satisfied

If only they would realize
This awesome truth I share
There is a God in heaven
That longs to bring them care

A simple prayer is all it takes
To enter His embrace
Just ask Him for forgiveness
And step into His grace

Jesus, mighty Savior
My sins I now confess
Forgive me, please, I ask today
Come take away this mess
I promise I will turn away
From sin that rules my life
I’ll make you Lord of all my heart
Until the day I die

What an act of mercy
What an act of love
What a mighty God we serve
Who loves us all so much
He created us to praise Him
And to walk with Him each day
I welcome you to stand with me
In the river of His grace

I Celebrate

I celebrate the mercy of the Lord
He overlooks my faults and all my past
When I come to him
His arms will take me in

I celebrate the grace He shows to me
The blessings that he gives abundantly
There’s nothing I deserve
So Him alone I serve
I celebrate the grace He shows to me

What an awesome Savior
What a glorious King
He looks upon me as if I’m His child
I lift my hands in worship
I lift my voice in praise
Up to my Lord, my God, my everything

He never leaves me lonely or distressed
He gives me peace within
I owe my life to him
I celebrate the love He shows to me

I celebrate my soon and coming King
Who promised He’d return to take me home
When He does appear
We’ll meet Him in the air
Our heavenly home awaits us over there

What an awesome Savior
What a glorious King
He looks upon me as if I’m His child
I lift my hands in worship
I lift my voice in praise
Up to my Lord, my God, my everything

Entangled In You

I Him I live
He is my source
He provides all that I need
Strength in my weakness
Joy in my sorrow
Faith in my times of doubt
Peace in the storms
Truth when I worry
All of my fears He removes with His love
He is my source of life

In Him I move
He has the plan
That will bring me a glorious end
Answers to questions
Guidance each day
His Spirit leads me to the truth
Holding my hand
Carrying me
When the steps are too hard to take
I only move when He moves

I have my being
Only in Christ
Grace that’s Amazing
Mercy that’s free
He paid the price on the cross
Poured out His spirit
Setting me free
I owe Him my life for eternity
I only will be where He is

My glorious Savior
My wonderful Lord
My life is entangled in you
There’s no place on earth
That I’d rather be
Than safe in your loving arms

In you I live and move
And have my being
You are my Heavenly Father
All I desire
You have provided
Your child I will always be
