Glory Abounds

They turn up the volume
When driving their car
The music blares loudly
The ground trembles hard

That bass beat repeats
As the sound echoes on
I try to zone out
But I’m deaf from the pound

Then I have an idea
I turn up the sound
I roll down the window
The music comes loud

High and majestic
Holy is He
Lord of Creation
Full of mercy

High Hallelujahs
Worship the King
Crank out the praises
His glory we sing

This world can’t compete
With that heavenly sound
When we sing His praises
His glory abounds

 

In response to the daily prompt Crank

Every Time I Praise You

Every time I praise you
Every time I worship
Every time I lift my hands to you
I can feel your presence
Welling up inside me
I just want to lift my song to you

A song of your great mercy
A song of your great love
A song of joy unspeakable and full
A song of grace and passion
A song of peace sublime
A song of Hallelujah
Praise the Lord

Words of Love

His name will move all my mountains
His name will heal all my pain
His name will bring strength and courage
His name gives me joy again

His name is my rock and refuge
His name is my fortress strong
His name always brings me mercy
His name fills my soul with songs

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

His name has removed my sin stains
His name has forgiven me
His name rose to gain the victory
His name spoken sets me free

Oh the mighty name of Jesus
Jesus, Jesus Lord of life
I will sing the name if Jesus
All the day and all the night

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

Jesus Sweet Jesus

He’s the love of my life
He’s the Lord of my days
Jesus, sweet Jesus

He’s my sword and my shield
My refuge to stay
Jesus sweet Jesus

My fortress
My deliverer
My stronghold
My healer
My redeemer
My Savior
My Jesus sweet Jesus

No other God is like Him
No one can dare compare
This mighty name above all names
Is worthy of my praise

I’ll lift my hands and lift my voice
I’ll honor Him as I rejoice
He is my Lord I’ve made my choice
Almighty God is He

I’ll sing honor and glory
Unto His name
Jesus sweet Jesus

I’ll sing Hallelujah
In highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus

Hallelujah in highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus
Hallelujah in highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus

 

Are You Ready?

I watch the sun as it rises today
Creeping its way up the sky
Bright rays touch the clouds
The birds sing aloud
Their anthem is raised up high

Someday soon God’s Son will return to earth
To bring all His dear children home
His radiant light
Will dazzle our sight
Well bow at the foot of His throne

Be sure today that you’re ready to go
When the trumpet shall sound that day
Trust in His name
Repent and be saved
Then lift up your voice in praise.

Time for a Haircut?

I used to go to barbershops
I’d have them cut my hair
These days my wife is chosen
To give me my hair care

I must admit in all those years
Of barbering in shops
I never saw a quartet
Singing as they chopped

I love to sing with gusto
With a quartet of my own
Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Join me from their throne

We sing loud Hallelujahs
And praises to the King
He is worthy of my praise
To Him my song I sing

In response to the daily prompt Quartet

My Heart Belongs to Him

Sometimes I wake up in the night
And I just want to praise Him
He’s done so many wondrous things for me
Perhaps that’s how it was that day
So many years ago
When Jesus came to town for all to see

The people heard of Lazarus
Christ raised him from the dead
They also heard He’d come to town that day
They lined the streets to welcome Him
Palm branches lifted high
They shouted as He passed along the way

Hosanna, Hosanna
Hosanna to the King
We worship and adore you
We wave an offering
We lay our palms before you
We bow down at your feet
Jesus you are welcome here today

The priests and Pharisees
Were not at all impressed
They questioned all this praise for just a man
But Jesus silenced them
These simple words He said
The rocks would praise if quiet they remained

Hosanna, Hosanna
Hosanna to the King
We worship and adore you
We wave an offering
We lay our palms before you
We bow down at your feet
Jesus you are welcome here today

I need to welcome Him
Into my heart today
The stony heart must now be rolled away
He’s coming here for me
My future in His hands
My heart belongs to Him this glorious day

Hosanna, Hosanna
Hosanna to the King
We worship and adore you
We wave an offering
We lay our palms before you
We bow down at your feet
Jesus you are welcome here today

Above This Dying World

Finding out what’s right what’s wrong
Finding out how to be strong
Finding out the ways of God
Learning from the word

Finding out a better way
Finding out more every day
Finding out the words to pray
Learning from the word

The word is truth to guide my path
The word is life that always lasts
The word shows me the way to pass
On pleasures of this world

The word sheds light on giving grace
The word shows me my Saviors face
The word gives me desire to raise
Above this dying world

Now I will give my cares to Him
Now I will have His peace within
Now I will raise a joyful hymn
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Now I will sing a song of praise
Now I will worship hands upraised
Now I will lift my voice always
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to I Am
Hallelujah Christ is Him
I will praise His name

Hallelujah let’s adore
Hallelujah Christ is Lord
Hallelujah evermore
I will praise His name

What a Thrill

When I learned about His mercy
And His wondrous love for me
I could not hold my praises
They came rushing out of me

I shouted hallelujah
When I settled in His peace
My heart was full of worship
With a sound that would not cease

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free

Now my hope endures forever
I cam trust His saving grace
I can’t wait to get to heaven
Then I’ll look upon His face

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free

What a day that will be
What a thrill that I shall see
My Savior and my Lord
Jesus Christ

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free
