Sunday Praise (12) 11/25/18. by me.
This is where I want to be –
In Your presence, heavenly Father.
This is what my soul longs for –
You alone, to be with You, God.
I am learning to praise You,
You’re teaching me daily
To obey You as I should,
To love You and people.
The more I think about You
The more I am amazed, God,
You are wonderful, majesty,
There really is none like You.
Daily You are beckoning me
To come, to be closer to You,
To enter Your presence as I am,
Bringing You my thanks and needs.
God, I look to no other name
For assurance of eternal life,
You’re my hope and strength,
You’re always the one I need.
I thank for the rain You sent
To where the fires were burning,
You washed away the smoke,
I thank You for Your mercy and care.
My heart rejoices in You, Lord,
Help me to rejoice when it’s hard,
Teach me to trust You more and more,
Help me to look to You always, God.
I come to You with praise,
With thanksgiving in my heart,
For You deserve it, You’re worthy,
There is none like You, O Lord.
Christ is my life’s foundation
Firm and sound and sure,
I’ve found no hope so real and true
As I found in You, my Almighty God.
Bring me closer to You
By Your love and grace,
I am seeking Your face,
Learning to love and obey.
God, Your grace is amazing
And You are more amazing still,
You’ve saved me, I’m Your child,
You have given me eternal life.
I know life’s not without problems,
There’s pain, loss, and suffering,
One day You’ll make those things end,
One day You’ll make it all as it should be.
Life is difficult, it’s not simple,
I’ve learned this from others
And I’m learning this myself,
You’re the one I always need.
Teach me to not love the world system
Nor things in it hostile toward You, God,
I want to speak truth to all those perishing,
To tell and show them what they need most.
Blessed be Your name,
Blessed be You, O Lord,
My soul blesses You now
And will bless You forever.
You’re greater than words can describe
And more wonderful than I now realize.
I want to give You a worthy offering
That You deserve and will accept.
Change my heart where change needs to be,
Work in me to change me for the better,
To love and obey and to be more like You,
I see no better change than this for my life.
God, for Your love I worship You,
For Your grace I glorify You,
For Your mercy I praise You,
For Your blesssings I thank You.
The Earth is surely full of Your mercy,
I see Your works when I focus on You,
Though some deny You anything at all
I know it’s not coincidence, it’s You, God.
It is good to praise You
Every day of my life,
You’ve given me all I have,
I thank You for everything.
My God, I enter Your presence,
Now is the time to worship You
For Your love and grace and mercy,
For Your truth and judgments and justice.
God, You’re the joy I can’t lose,
You’re my constant in the change,
You’re my hope and strength and song,
I will worship You now and forevermore.
