Sunday Praise (51) 8/25/19. by me.
The day has come and gone,
You’ve given it to us as a gift
From Your merciful hand,
You’re a loving heavenly Father.
As we gather may Your Spirit dwell within us,
We are gathered in the name of Jesus Christ,
To declare Your praises in the congregation,
To exalt Your holy name, for You are worthy.
You’re my strength when I’m weak
And You’re the treasure that I seek,
I have come to desire nothing more
Than loving and glorifying You, Lord.
Jesus, Lamb of God, You’re worthy
To be praised by every person,
May all bow down and confess
You are Lord, God, Savior, forever.
Change my heart, o Lord my God,
Make it ever true to You, Master,
May I be like You, doing Your will,
Growing in obedience and love.
Draw me close to You, Abba,
I need to enter Your presence
Humbled and with a sincere heart
Seeking Your face, a child in need.
Father in Heaven, life here isn’t easy,
I get tired, frustrated, discouraged,
I am always in need of You, my God,
You sustain me every moment here.
I haven’t served You all my life,
Too many years I was dead in sin,
A lost soul condemned by unbelief
But now I am alive in Jesus Christ.
You’re all I want, the world hates that,
My flesh wars against my spirit,
I am weak but You are strong, God,
I run to You, You’re my hope and life.
God, You’re all I’ve ever needed
But I haven’t always known it,
I was Your enemy before You saved me,
Now I am Your child forever, Abba.
I’m humbled by Your love for me,
I know that I don’t deserve it at all,
You’re more than I can grasp now,
Who You are amazes me daily.
I’m no longer a slave to sin,
I’m no longer a slave to fear,
Your Holy Spirit lives within,
You are ever here, ever near.
I am ransomed, I’m redeemed
By the blood of Jesus Christ,
I value this above all things,
I am forever Yours, living God.
Your creation is wonderful,
Your beauty is breathtaking,
You’re more wonderful and holy
Than I realize now in this state.
You give me words to write
Praising Your holy name again,
I seek to better worship You,
Strengthen me, heavenly Father.
Help me prepare for Communion,
To partake in that sacrament,
To do it in remembrance of You,
Holy One, Lord of all, my Savior.
The Earth is full of Your glory,
Your works are manifest to all,
None have excuse for unbelief,
All need a Savior, all need You.
I am in awe of who You are,
Every new day I get a glimpse
Of Your glory, Your majesty,
I praise You, living and true God.
Nothing can separate me from Your love,
The world and Satan and flesh will try
But will fail for Your promise is sure,
None will pluck me from Your hand, God.
I’m still learning to love and obey You,
Your grace is sufficient for me,
Your strength is made complete
In my weakness, You’re my strength.
Fill me daily with Your Holy Spirit,
Guide me on the narrow road,
Fill my heart with gratitude,
Fill my lips with thanksgiving.
I will grow in love and faith,
Trusting in You more each day,
Learning from many mistakes,
Living a holy life You call me to live.
I will rejoice in You, my God,
You deserve my whole heart
And soul and mind and life,
You’re my everything forever.
