Don’t Be Distracted

When I am down and weary
And life seems like just a fight
There’s only one thing that revives me
One thing that will make things right

I summon up all that’s within me
I make up my mind to change course
Then way down deep in my spirit
I hear a resounding noise

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
In any dark time or stormy sea
I will praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
Nothing can keep the words in my mouth
I will praise the Lord

The next time you’re in a battle
The next time your mood is down
Just make up your mind to praise Him
Relief will quite soon be found

Praise the Lord
You should just praise the Lord
Don’t be distracted by things in your life
You should just praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
Let’s all just praise the Lord
When we lift Him up He lifts us up too
Let’s all just praise the Lord

All the Glory to You

We come into your house today
Into your presence with our praise
We lift our voices high
You’re name we magnify
All the glory to you
All the glory to you

Exalted to the highest place
We long to gaze into your face
Our worship fills the air
You fill the atmosphere
All the glory to you
All the glory to you
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
All the glory to you

No Complaints

Some people give out hatred
Others emit fear
There are those who always have complaints
Some will bring you down
Others make you doubt
There’s even some who have a hundred pains

All of the above
And many more beside
Can truly work to bring a person down
It’s not the way to be
If Christ is in the lead
The words He spoke gave mercy all around

Let us dispense His mercy
To everyone we meet
That we might speak in words of love and grace
No place for our complaining
No murmuring or doubt
Only those things that fill our hearts with praise

It Matters Not

It matters not what I’m going through
Or what the day may bring
The Lord deserves my praise this day
So, I will gladly sing.

I’ll sing of His great mercy
I’ll sing of His great love
I’ll sing of His amazing grace
He lights the star’s above

He gives me joy abundant
And peace within my soul
Never does a day go by
He makes my spirit whole

I’ll shout His praise from the rooftops
I’ll lift my voice and sing
Eternal Hallelujahs
To the King of Kings

Misunderstood

Some people will believe a lie instead of seeking truth
Some people will tell gossip tales that end up harming you
Some people drink their alcohol each night so they feel good
Some people do their harmful drugs and stay misunderstood

Some people think it’s quite alright to swear in Jesus name
Some people think that causing pain is all just fun and games
Some people cannot say a word unless they swear and curse
Some people will refuse to listen and their life just gets worse

None of this is natural
It’s not what we’re made for
This world has got it all wrong
When His word they do ignore
We were made to walk with Him
In the garden He prepared
So put aside your wicked ways
And praise His name instead

A Sanctuary

I awoke this Monday morning
Looking forward to the day
I rose to greet the sunrise
As it lightened up the gray
I ate a bit of breakfast
With coffee on the tray
Then I walked out of my house
And I began to say

Thank you, Lord for giving me
Your mercy on this day
Thank you Lord, for your sweet grace
Which blesses me always
Thank you Lord for peace of mind
Provided by your grace
Thank you for the joy you give
And hope that always stays

Thank you Lord for this creation
Beautiful and wise
Thank you Lord for singing birds
Filling up the skies
Thank you Lord for flowers and trees
Colors for my eyes
Thank you Lord for loving me
And helping me through trials

As I finished my short song
Of praise unto my King
I thanked Him once again
For providing everything
And in that moment I could feel
The Spirit praises bring
My porch became a santcuary
For the King of Kings

The One

I think of all the things that God has done

Through Jesus Christ His one an only Son

Ìn awe I stand Amazed

At the wonder of His ways

I read His word and know that He’s the one

The one who saved my soul

The one who ser me free

The one who rose for me

Ths one who made me whole

The one who took my sin

The one who dwells within

The one who healed my pain

The one whose peace I gained

The one who guides my day

The one who makes a way

The one who holds my hand

The one who has a plan

The one who answers prayer

The one whose always there

Now I sing hallelujah to the Lamb

Glory, glory, glory to the great I am

Ali lift up all my praise

To honor His sweet name

Jesus Christ whosw honor I proclaim

Lift His Lovely Name

In my life Jesus Christ is Lord
He’s everything to me and even more
He took away my sin
I owe my life to Him
Because the depth I came from I abhorred

I’m also confident of this one thing
No matter what my future life will bring
He is my confidant
My past is dead and gone
And He will never bring up anything

What mercy He gives me from day to day
That worry of my past is washed away
I’ll lift His lovely name
With songs of highest praise
I’ll follow in His plan all the way
