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

CHORUS
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

CHORUS

BRIDGE
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

CHORUS

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

Praise and Worship

I Sing My Love to Thee

Wonderful Creator
Mighty God is He
He put the stars all up in place
Displays His majesty

Glorious Creator
Nature bows to thee
The trees all wave and birds sing praise
They testify to me

CHORUS
I lift my hands and give my words
To songs of praise for He is worthy
Every day from dawn to dusk
I sing my love to thee
I sing my love to thee

Merciful redeemer
Lord of Lords to me
He came to earth to give His life
So I could be set free

CHORUS

BRIDGE
All of heaven all of earth
All of nature sings your worthy
From highest height to oceans deep
Creation shows your majesty
Witnessing your love for me

CHORUS

I love to walk early in the morning. The air is so crisp and clean. Even on a cloudy morning it smells like a new earth. But on a clear night, when the humidity is low and not a wisp of cloud is anywhere to be seen, my eyes light up. If there is a moon shining that night I wonder at it’s glorious shape. Be it half or crescent, like the Cheshire Cat smiling down at me, it is a glorious sight, riding across the sky like it does. When it is full, it lights my path almost like a dim sun. And when the new moon rises, those clear skies display majesty beyond belief. I walk out to the northern part of our bike trail, where the city lights go dim, to see the wonder of the heavens gloriously displayed. Every star placed there by your loving hand to guide us on our way. It is the most evident display of your great love for us.

Psalm 19:1-2 King James Version
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

 

Great is Your Name

I can’t believe
That you loved me
In spite of my sin and my shame
When I was lost
You paid the cost
Since then I am not the same

I’m no longer dead
Your word I have read
Your truth has given me life
Now I will rejoice
I’ll lift up my voice
I’ll give you my praise sacrifice

Worthy, you are worthy
Holy, you are holy
Righteous, you are righteous
Lord of my life
King of my days
Worthy, you are worthy
Holy, you are holy
Jesus, you are Jesus
Great is your name
Great is your name

Mighty is Our God

Lord of all Lords I love you
King of all Kings I praise you
God of all Gods I worship your name
Mighty is our God

I will lift up my voice to praise you
I will lift up my hands to praise you
I will lift up my heart to worship your name
Mighty is our God

Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Mighty is our God

Jesus Is Your Name

Lord I sing your praise
To this generation
Lord I lift my voice up
To your holy name
You alone are worthy
To be lifted higher
With every breath you give me
I will sing your praise

Glory, glory to you Lord
Glory, glory to you Lord
Glory, glory to you Lord
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name

Holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy are you Lord
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name

I Want to See You Lord

I want to see you Lord
High and lifted up
Angels ‘round your throne
Giving praise

I want to see you Lord
Bow down at your feet
Look into your eyes
And give you praise

You are worthy
You are holy
You are all that I need
All that I desire

You are worthy
My life is in your hands
Let my mouth declare
You are Lord

I Will Praise You All Day Long

When the sun comes up I will praise you
In the morning light I will praise you
As the song bird sings I will praise you
I will praise You all day long

In the midday heat I will praise you
As the storm clouds build I will praise you
When the wind grows strong i will praise you
I will praise You with a song

Wonderful creator this world is in your hands
Lead me by your Spirit that I might know your plans
Guide me as I travel throughout this glorious land
As long as I have breath I will praise you

As the sun goes down I will praise you
In the dead of night i will praise you
When my eyes grow tired I will praise you
I will praise you all day long

Every minute
Every second
Every hour I will praise you
Every minute
Every second
Every hour I will praise you

Wonderful creator this world is in your hands
Lead me by your Spirit that I might know your plans
Guide me as I travel throughout this glorious land
As long as I have breath I will praise you

 

Lift

I lift my eyes to Jesus
For He is my light
He takes me out of darkness
And makes my future bright

I lift my heart to Jesus
For He is my hope
I had no peace within me
And He taught me to cope

I lift my hands to Jesus
I surrender all to Him
I was losing my life’s battle
And He taught me to win

I lift my voice to Jesus
I worship Him today
I was lost and wandering
And He showed me the way

I lift my praise to Jesus
I sing with all my heart
Hallelujah to the Lamb of God
He gave me a new start

I lift my life to Jesus
Redeemer of my soul
Praise and adoration
To Jesus Christ my Lord
