The Lamb That Was Slain

I entered the gate
The pearl of great price
Into the throne room of God
The elders were singing
The angels were winging
The sound of praise was alive

With Cherubim soaring
And Seraphim roaring
I fell on my knees in awe
For right there before me
In all of His glory
Was the precious Lamb of God

They sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain

I joined in the chorus
With saints gone before us
‘Twas the sound of perfect praise
We lifted our hands
As the prayers of the ages
Rose before Him as sweet smelling grace

Our eyes beheld His glory
Our lips sang His praise
Our hearts leapt in worship
To the Lamb that was slain

We sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain

We Give You Glory

We give you glory and honor oh Lord
We give you glory and honor oh Lord
We lift up our voice
In your name we rejoice
We give you glory and honor oh Lord

Precious Lord we come to you
With our hands lifted high
Lord we come to magnify
Your name Jesus Jesus

We give you glory and honor oh Lord
We give you glory and honor oh Lord
We lift our praises high
Your name we magnify
We give you glory and honor oh Lord

Precious Lord we come to you
With our hands lifted high
Lord we come to magnify
Your name Jesus Jesus

When Life Seems Lost

In autumn we view many things
That make us marvel at our God
The brilliance of a lowering sun
The clouds produce a show of awe

This is a time of cooler days
When leaves in sunlight start to glow
Deciduous trees light up the air
Their yellows, reds and oranges show

Then these brilliant leaves do fall
Adorning all the earth and sod
The trees lay bare but still raise high
Their branches lifting praise to God

We’d learn a lot to take their cue
To lift our eyes when life seems lost
For even though the winter comes
Spring will soon be greeting us

All Creation Testifies

I sing glory to your name
Glory to your name
Glory to your name oh Lord

I sing holy is your name
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

I sing worthy is your name
Worthy is your name
Worthy is your name oh Lord

I sing Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

 

Full Volume

I sleep at night in the basement
Which can get rather boring
My plight is due to just one thing
The sonorous sound of my snoringpoem,

There’s another time in my life
When a different sonorous sound
Is enjoyed by the people before me
As I lead worship to the Lord

Then we enter into the throne room
Where the Lamb sits on the throne
We sing full volume together
As we worship Christ alone

Tell the World

Reign in the Heavens
Sweet Lamb of God
Twenty four elders
Praise ‘round your throne
Cherubim shout out
Holy are you
Seraphim fall down
Worship is due

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

Rain down from Heaven
Spirit of God
Fill us with power
To tell of His love
Grant us your wisdom
Your words we seek
Fill us with boldness
To preach in the street

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

He’s the one who gives us power
He’s the one who gives us strength
To tell the world
To tell the world
Of His great love

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

Beyond Measure

He is seated on the throne
The Lamb who was slain
All glory to Him
Who rose again

Cherubim and Seraphim
Flying ‘round His glory
Shouting to the heavens
Holy Holy Holy

He is high and lifted up
Resplendent beyond measure
The elders dance before Him
For He is their treasure

I can’t wait for the day
I will join their praise
Singing glory hallelujah
To Jesus Christ our Lord

So Many Things

Eggs in the fry pan
Bacon being nuked
Coffee brewing slowly
Pouring out the juice
Toast in the toaster
Eggs need turning now
Multitask for breakfast
Sometimes I wonder how

But all the while I’m running
My spirit is alive
I’m praising my dear Savior
He’s always at my side
And as He brings some people
To rest inside my mind
My prayers go up unceasing
That they will all be fine

There are so many things
To do when morning calls
The best way is to contemplate
How to best do them all
When finally it’s over
And all the food is gone
I sit and write this poem
The Daily Prompt is done

Your Child

Jesus you’re my all in all
You’re everything to me
Through all my days
In all my ways
Your child I’ll always be

You fill me with your spirit
You captivate my mind
My sin is gone
By your sweet love
Freedom in you I find

And when the storms come my way
I merely call your name
You calm the sea
Your arms hold me
I’m safe in your embrace

I’ll lift my praises to you
I’ll lift your precious name
I love you so
Jesus my Lord
In you I will remain

Draw Me

Draw me nearer
Nearer and nearer
Walk with me in the way

Draw me higher
Higher and higher
Lift me to heaven’s gates

Jesus you’re all I need
Jesus you’re all my heart desires
Jesus you are my Lord and King
Keep me close by your side

Draw me closer
Closer and closer
Into your warm embrace

Draw me farther
Farther and farther
Along the path of grace

As I lift my hands in worship
As I lift my voice in praise
Teach me all your wondrous statutes
Help me learn to know your ways

Jesus you’re all I need
Jesus you’re all my heart desires
Jesus you are my Lord and King
Keep me close by your side
