Glory Abounds

They turn up the volume
When driving their car
The music blares loudly
The ground trembles hard

That bass beat repeats
As the sound echoes on
I try to zone out
But I’m deaf from the pound

Then I have an idea
I turn up the sound
I roll down the window
The music comes loud

High and majestic
Holy is He
Lord of Creation
Full of mercy

High Hallelujahs
Worship the King
Crank out the praises
His glory we sing

This world can’t compete
With that heavenly sound
When we sing His praises
His glory abounds

 

In response to the daily prompt Crank

Every Time I Praise You

Every time I praise you
Every time I worship
Every time I lift my hands to you
I can feel your presence
Welling up inside me
I just want to lift my song to you

A song of your great mercy
A song of your great love
A song of joy unspeakable and full
A song of grace and passion
A song of peace sublime
A song of Hallelujah
Praise the Lord

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning
I feel fine
I’ve got Jesus on my mind

He’s a real
Friend of mine
He is with me all the time

Gives me joy
Peace of mind
Looks at me with love divine

Hope that keeps
For all time
Home in heaven will be mine

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Calms the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Heals my ills
Soothes my pain
Always near when I should call

Teaches me
Of His ways
Picks me up each time I fall

Urges me
To go on
Even when I’ve hit the wall

Precious thoughts
He has of me
Always keeps me standing tall

How I love Him so
Jesus Lamb of God
Pardoned all my sin
Wraps me in His arms
Loves me through my faults
Dries my every tear
Stills the storms of life
Calms my every fear

Sunday morning
I feel great
I will lift my hands in praise

Above This Dying World

Finding out what’s right what’s wrong
Finding out how to be strong
Finding out the ways of God
Learning from the word

Finding out a better way
Finding out more every day
Finding out the words to pray
Learning from the word

The word is truth to guide my path
The word is life that always lasts
The word shows me the way to pass
On pleasures of this world

The word sheds light on giving grace
The word shows me my Saviors face
The word gives me desire to raise
Above this dying world

Now I will give my cares to Him
Now I will have His peace within
Now I will raise a joyful hymn
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Now I will sing a song of praise
Now I will worship hands upraised
Now I will lift my voice always
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to I Am
Hallelujah Christ is Him
I will praise His name

Hallelujah let’s adore
Hallelujah Christ is Lord
Hallelujah evermore
I will praise His name

What a Thrill

When I learned about His mercy
And His wondrous love for me
I could not hold my praises
They came rushing out of me

I shouted hallelujah
When I settled in His peace
My heart was full of worship
With a sound that would not cease

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free

Now my hope endures forever
I cam trust His saving grace
I can’t wait to get to heaven
Then I’ll look upon His face

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free

What a day that will be
What a thrill that I shall see
My Savior and my Lord
Jesus Christ

Make a joyful noise
Shout for victory
Jesus Christ is Lord
He has set me free

How Can I Keep Silent

How can I keep silent
When birds sing out their praise
They greet the sun each morning
With songs that lift His name

How can I keep silent
When sunrise lights the sky
The colors give Him glory
As gilded clouds shine bright

How can I keep silent
While trees wave praise all day
The rustling of their leaves
Shout out in lofty praise

Can you hear their worship
Can you see their praise
Lifted up to heaven
Honoring His name
Their song lifts up to heaven
Their glory fills the skies
How can i keep silent
While nature testifies

How can I keep silent
When babbling brooks proclaim
A song of hallelujah
Proceeds throughout they day

How can I keep silent
When stars praise in the night
Twinkling in wonder
Of His power and might

Will you rise and worship
Will you rise in praise
Sing out hallelujah
Glorify His name
My heart beats in wonder
My soul leaps within
Longing to rejoice
And lift my voice to Him

I will lift my eyes to heaven
I will raise my hands up high
I will not be silent
I will testify
Glory to the King of Kings
Glory to the Lamb
I will sing His praises
I will worship Him

The Present

Today is the day
Not tomorrow
Not yesterday
Today is the day
To praise the Lord

Today is the day
Not next week
Not last week
Today is the day
To worship Him

He is the one
Who gives us the present
He is the one
Who gives breath every day
He is the one
Who gives rythm to heart beats
Only my God
Can show me the way

Today is a present
All wrapped up in hope
His peace calms my spirit
His joy overflows

This wonderful present
Is mine for the asking
It comes every moment
From Jesus my King

He is the one
That showers with mercy
He is the one
Whose love reigns divine
He is the one
Who gives grace amazing
Only my God
Will always be mine

Today is the day
Today is the present
Today is my gift
From Jesus my Lord
Today I will praise Him
Today I will worship
Today is my chance
To give thanks to my Lord.
