Hold Onto Jesus

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

My life was tangled and tortured
The sin stains were all in display
I had quite a collection of terrible things
Seems I never could find the right way

I was destined for doom and misfortune
My path seemed to be laid out
In a stupor I headed to church one day
To see what the fuss was about

When I walked in the door they were singing
Their voices were filled with great joy
I sat in the back wondering what to do next
As my head split in two from the noise

When singing was finished the preacher got up
He shouted out Praise the Lord
Then He said is there one who does not know the way
It’s time for you now to come forward

I don’t know what compelled me to rise to my feet
I slowly walked up to the front
The tears started flowing as prayers were uplifted
The pastor then gave me a hug

As he stood there with arms wrapped around me
He said Jesus Loves you my son
Confess all your sins
Give your life up to Him
You’ll never regret when it’s done

I closed my eyes
I bowed my head
I prayed that prayer
My heart leapt from my chest
The peace that came in
And the joy that I felt
I knew something changed
Inside I could tell
I raised up my arms and began to rejoice
Thank you sweet Jesus for saving my soul
The people all lifted their voice in sweet praise
I knew that my life had drastically changed

As I left that old church later on in the day
I made up my mind to not turn away
I’d hold onto new life the old was now gone
I’d hold onto Jesus and sing this new song

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

It’s Time To Praise Him

It’s time to praise Him
It’s time to lift your voice
To let your heart rejoice
Let’s praise the Lord

It’s time to worship
To lift our hands up high
To open up our eyes
Let’s worship Him

He created all I see
He gave up His life for me
He is clothed in Majesty
He is Lord

He brings healing to us all
He will answer our hearts call
He fills me with wondrous awe
He is Lord

It time to praise Him
He sets my soul on fire
He is my hearts desire
Let’s praise the Lord

It’s time to worship
The Lamb of God is He
Mercy for all to see
Let’s worship Him

He has grace abundantly
He brings joy that blesses me
In His arms He gives me peace
He is Lord

When I’m down He lifts me up
When I’m dry He fill my cup
There’s no end to His great love
He is Lord

Let’s lift Him up
Let’s lift Him up
Let’s lift Him up for all to world to see
Let’s lift Him up
Let’s lift Him up
Let’s lift Him up the Mighty King of Kings

It’s time to praise Him
It’s time to praise Him
It’s time to praise Him

Time to Praise

Darkness hides the shadows as I wake up with a yawn
I open up my eyes before the coming of the dawn
My feet hit the floor as the sleepiness wears on
It must be time to praise the Lord

Before I rise up from my bed I lift my feeble voice
Before any other thing I will take time to rejoice
Before the day has started His praise will be my choice
This is the time to praise the Lord

Hallelujah Lord I love you
I thank you for your grace
Hallelujah thank you Jesus
Thank you for my wife’s embrace
I will praise you
I will bless your name
From the rising to the setting sun
Not a moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord

When I start my day with worship the whole day will turn out right
I never have to wonder if I’m walking in His light
He draws so near to me in the quiet of the night
As I take time to praise the Lord

No matter what the day will bring
Come rain or snow or wind
No matter what my body feels
If I’m well or if I’m ill
My voice will lift up praises
My heart will fill with song
My spirit will rise up to Him
My worship will be sung

Hallelujah Lord I love you
I thank you for your grace
Hallelujah thank you Jesus
Thank you for my wife’s embrace
I will praise you
I will bless your name
From the rising to the setting sun
Not a moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord

Not a moment
Not a single moment will go by
That my heart will not cry out
Praise the Lord
