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

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

Lift Him Higher and Higher

He said if I
Be lifted up
I will draw
All men to me
They raised Him up
Upon the cross
The blood He shed
Has set me free

They laid Him in
A borrowed tomb
They sealed it tight
A guard was paid
In three short days
The stone rolled back
He is alive
To heaven He raise

Lift Him higher and higher
For all the world to see
Lift Him higher and higher
Tell of His love
Lift Him higher and higher
Come on and testify
Lift Him higher and higher
It’s up to you and me

As I go out
Onto this world
My daily task
Is plainly clear
I need to speak
And testify
Of His great love
For all to hear

Lift Him higher and higher
For all the world to see
Lift Him higher and higher
Tell of His love
Lift Him higher and higher
Come on and testify
Lift Him higher and higher
It’s up to you and me

Every word I speak
Everything I do
Every thought I have
Out in this dark world
Should be witness to
His eternal love
Am I living proof
For the King above

Lift Him higher and higher
For all the world to see
Lift Him higher and higher
Tell of His love
Lift Him higher and higher
Come on and testify
Lift Him higher and higher
It’s up to you and me

Jesus My All In All

When I think of all He has done for me
How He gave up His life on Calvary
Took my sin away and set me free
I can’t help but praise His name

When I think of the words He spoke back then
Words of love and of kingdoms without end
His words guide my life in His holy plan
I can’t help but praise His name

Oh what a Savior

Oh what a Lord He is
Loves me much more

When I think that He bore the stripes just for me
He brings joy to me life because I’m healed
How His suffering bore turmoil so I’d have peace
I can’t help but praise His name

Glory to God

Where can I go
What can I do
How can I speak
And bring glory to you

What is the plan
Where does it lead
When will I learn
To bring glory to you

Every word I speak
Everything I do
Every action is seen by the world
Life’s full of worries
Doubts still abound
My calm reactions will speak out so loud

Peace in the storms
Joy in the valleys
Love in the midst of a sarcastic crowd
Patience in suffering
Faith that won’t quit
All these shout glory to God out loud

Glory to God who sits on the throne
Glory to God who reigns
Glory to God the great three in one
Glory to God
Let’s give Him all praise

Where ever I go
Whatever I do
However I speak
I’ll bring glory to you

For this is your plan
That leads me along
Because I have learned
To bring glory to you

Glory to God who sits on the throne
Glory to God who reigns
Glory to God the great three in one
Glory to God
Let’s give Him all praise

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 mercy of the Lord

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

I celebrate the way He loves me so
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

I Lift Your Name

It gives me great joy to see you this way
With a smile on your face at the end of the day
For you took the time to seek Him and pray
That’s why you had a wonderful day

There’s peace in my heart when you are so blessed
He brought us both out of a terrible mess
He fills us both up with His righteousness
Let’s worship Him now with words those will bless

Blessed Jesus, Lord of all
Blessed Jesus, King of all
Blessed Jesus, Savior to all
I lift your name
Your wonderful name
I lift your name on high

I smile when I think of all He has done
To give us this day of victory won
For both of us have a song we have sung
Of loving the Savior, God’s only Son

Came for us
Lived for us
Died for us
Rose for us

Came for us
Lived for us
Died for us
Rose for us

Blessed Jesus, Lord of all
Blessed Jesus, King of all
Blessed Jesus, Savior to all
I lift your name
Your wonderful name
I lift your name
Your wonderful name
I lift your name
Your wonderful name on high

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
