His Precious Gifts

Lift your praises high to Him, our soon and coming King
Give your worship every day to God for everything
Sing loud, rejoicing in the fact that this day you can bring
An offering of praise and thanks to Jesus Christ our King

Lord, I pray that you'll go with me through this day to come
I pray my eyes will take in all the wonders you have done
From the darkness of the night that becomes a brilliant dawn
Through a day that's filled with miracles when evening's sun is gone

First the stars are sparkling in the darkness of the night
Until the clouds are sprinkled with the first hint of sunlight
Slowly come the golden borders of the clouds in sight
Until it overwhelms my eyes with beautiful delight

Birds start chirping, sending songs throughout the morning sky
As spring time dew starts falling on the ground that's oh so dry
The flowers start to open as they greet the morning light
And I wake up to song and light from a long and restful night

Now breath does fill my lungs with air, a gift from God most high
My eyes are opened up to see, the miracle of sight
I hear the birds sing sweetly at the beautiful sunlight
And I marvel at the song they sing in praise to God most high

I could go on and on with all the miracles He gives
And fill a thousand pages with my praise at all He did
On this one day in a million that He's given me to live
But I'll stop right here and simply say I'll give my praise to Him

For every breath, and every sight, and every sense or sound
Is another gift from God most high, His precious gifts abound
From lighting up the sky to all the wonders on the ground
He never will forsake me, He'll always be around

So lift your praises high to Him, our soon and coming King
Give your worship every day to God for everything
Sing loud, rejoicing in the fact that this day you can bring
An offering of praise and thanks to Jesus Christ our King

His Mercy Still Cover Today

Mercy comes running from the throne of God
It reaches us right where we are
We should never doubt and never fear
That His mercy is always enough

In the wilderness trip of the people of God
God dwelt in the Ark every day
A mercy seat covered this precious abode
And His mercy still covers today

Inside of that ark was the manna from God
And the rod that budded from death
Also, the tablets of law were put there
Then the mercy seat covered this wealth

These three things represent three aspects of God
The rod was His almighty power
He manna showed His provision for all
And the tablets of stone show His law

Yet the mercy seat covered it all in that day
And His mercy should still be in that place
Our witness, our strength, and the things that we say
Should all be covered by mercy and grace

For His mercy still covers today
Everything that we do or we say
Make your witness effective this day
By delivering words of grace

He Lights Our Path

Rainfall, incessant since daybreak
Gently soaking into the ground
Giving life to all that lives
Much like God's word - the water of life
The living water that springs from within
Incessant, ever flowing
Drawing us closer to Him
The wind, howling wildly
Starting when it wants, where it wants
Ending without a trace
I never know when it is coming,
Or where it is going.
So is the Holy Spirit
Blowing through my life
Encouraging me, guiding me
Showing me His will, His life
Drawing me loser to Him
The sun, giving light to all
Warming us with its radiance
Helping us to see what s around us
Giving life to all it touches
So is the Son, Jesus Christ
He gives life to all he touches
He helps us to see what is inside us
He lights our path
Drawing us closer to Him
All the world glorifies the Father
The heavens declare the Son
All of nature testifies of Him
All of His creation praises His wonderful name
Let us rejoice and be glad in Him!

Forever Free

I was lost but now I’m found
I was blind but now I see
I was dead but now I live
I was bound but now I’m free

Free from worry, free from fear
Free from satan’s grip on me
Free from sadness, free from shame
Now I’m free. Now I am free

CHORUS
Forever free, forever free
Because you died upon that tree
Rose again new life to bring
I am now forever free

Jesus ransomed my lost soul
Came and made me fully whole
I will magnify His name
Because I’m now forever free

BRIDGE
Praise the Lord, praise His wonderful name
The name of Jesus.  The Lamb of God
Praise His name.  Praise His name
The name of Jesus Christ our Lord
 
CHORUS (2 times)

Grant Me Wisdom

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good

You have given me life and breath 
so that I can follow you. 
You have given me eyes and ears 
to behold your glory
You have given me hands and feet 
that I might be about your work 
Now I pray that all these gifts you give 
will help me in the way I live
To bring the lost into a life with you

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good

You have given me trials and tests 
so I can learn to trust in you. 
You have given me times of silence 
to teach me patience
You have given me friends who bring to me 
heartache and despair
All to drive me to my knees in prayer 
so that I might seek your answers there
And can bring the lost into a life with you.

All of my life is designed for one purpose. 
All of my days are ordered for one goal
To show others through my situations 
That the love of God is real

Grant me wisdom so that I can know your ways. 
Grant me courage to walk beside you all the way
Help me listen so that I can know your plan. 
For I know that everything you have for me Is only good
Now I pray that all these gifts you give
Will help me in the way I live to bring the lost into a life with you

He Is Always There

In the silent night, He is there
In the midst of thunder, He is there
In the cold north wind, He is there
In the darkest cave, He is there
In the loneliest dungeon
In the lion’s den
In the fiery furnace
He is always there
On the threshing floor
On the mountaintop
On the gathering clouds
He is always there
He is in the burning bush
He is in the fire by night
He is in the cloud by day
He is always there
When trouble comes.  When none stands with you
When darkness is all about.  He is right there beside you
Bow your head.  Fall to your knees in His presence
Let Him lift you up.  Let Him be your strength
He will always be with you
He will never leave you
He is right there beside you
He is always there

Free From Satan’s Games

Jesus you're my guiding light
Jesus you turn dark to light
Jesus you have won the fight
And set the captives free

Jesus you have shown the way
Jesus you give grace each day
Jesus you're the one I praise
For you have set me free

Free from all my past of sin
Free from troubles deep within
Free from what my life has been
You've made me new today

Free from fear and doubt and shame
Free from playing Satan’s games
Free from being quite insane
You've showed me a new way

So I will sing your praises loud
So all the world can hear
That Jesus is the Lord of all
There's nothing now to fear

Just give your life to Him today
And He'll show you a brand new way
His mercy and His grace abound
To all who call His name.

A Resting Place

I stand here thinking if my life 
And all the things I do
I realize that I'd be lost
If I did not have you

I was a soul just wandering 
Through darkness and disgrace 
Then one day I saw the light
When I came to know your grace

CHORUS
No more do I wander
No more do I roam
I have found a resting place
In you and you alone

What a blessed hope I have
What joy now fills my soul
A peace that calms down all my fears
Your love has made me whole

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Only in you, Lord, only in you
Can I find rest in this troubled world

CHORUS

Our Deepest Need

I was determined that my prayers would reach to heaven
I waited patiently to have the answer come
Then in the stirring of my heart I felt assurance
As the peace of God came rushing like a flood 

In that moment no more worry was within me
I know that Jesus had received my heartfelt plea
I lifted up my eyes to see the heavens open
As the Holy Spirit came to rest on me

What a joy then filled my heart to overflowing 
I felt a laugh deep down within my seeking soul
My mouth flew open and the laughter came in torrents 
My heart had found a place where I could just let go

I didn't care if those around me heard my laughter 
I didn't even recognize that they were there
And it was then I realized the blessed freedom
That could only come from Jesus loving hand

Then I remembered this all started in my prayer life 
I'd been seeking things I thought I truly need
But as it turned out all those things were not the answer 
Jesus brought an answer deeper than my plea

Now I share with you this heartfelt lesson
Always remember Jesus knows our deepest need
And if the answer to our prayer seems long forgotten 
There is something more He's given us indeed
