Sunday Praise (49) 8/11/19. by me.
God, it’s You I see
Everywhere I go,
You’re not silent,
You’re not inactive.
You’re the living God,
You’re the true God,
Master, Potter, Maker,
Creator, Sustainer, Lord.
Deliverer, Redeemer, Savior,
King of kings, Lord of lords,
Heavenly Father, Sovereign,
Love, Light, Consuming Fire.
My life is in You, Sustainer,
My hope is in You, Deliverer,
My strength is in You, Lord,
My salvation is in You, Savior.
I’m not as wise as I could be
But You’re daily teaching me,
Conforming me to Christ’s likeness,
Making me who I should really be.
It’s not a quick process,
I’m not a quick learner,
But You’re a patient Teacher
And You’re a loving Father.
With strength and love
Fill my life, loving Lord,
I’m always in need of You,
You’re my all in all, my everything.
Not a day goes by that I don’t have
Something to thank You for, God,
Not a moment goes by that I don’t need
You in my soul and heart and life, Abba.
I took some moments today
To look around and observe
Things I see daily but overlook
For the workweek’s busyness.
I can see nature’s not silent,
It’s not here to merely exist,
Creation points to You,
It glorifies You, God Almighty.
I see the grass on the ground
And the leaves on the trees,
I see the clouds and blue sky
It’s all the work of Your hands.
You put it there for a reason,
It’s not there without purpose,
It’s not a meaningless thing,
It’s all there for Your glory.
You have given it a voice,
The breeze begins to speak,
You have given it a way
To praise You, Creator.
I receive what You’ve given,
Bask in the present moment,
The world seems calmer now,
I rest in Your presence, Abba.
Here I am and here are You,
You’re always with me, God,
But feelings of loneliness
Come and go often, Lord.
I know I can’t run away from You
Yet sometimes I try because I sin
And shame fills me, I want to hide
But I can’t hide from Your light.
When I sin, You convict me,
You call me to repentance,
You still forgive, You still love,
Abba, You call me to Yourself.
I have made many more mistakes
Than there are hairs upon my head,
I’ve done more wrong than I remember,
You’ve forgiven me more than I deserve.
It’s good for me to be with You,
Whatever happens, You’re with me,
Your love humbles me, Father,
I praise You for all that You are!
Holy One, I am unclean, I’m guilty,
I make the choices to speak ill,
My heart needs cleansing, Lord,
Remove the filth, purge out the poison.
It’s good to praise You, God,
I need to do it more often,
I want to always be sincere
When I praise and worship You.
May I worship You, holy God,
In spirit and in truth always,
Giving You what is Your due,
Giving You what You deserve.
You’ve rejoiced my heart,
You’re the God of my salvation,
I am amazed that You love,
Forever Yours, nevermore alone.
My heart will rejoice in You,
Praise will come to You,
Holy One, be blessed forever
And glorified for all eternity.
You are worthy to be loved,
Worthy to be praised, adored,
Deserving of glory and worship,
Deserving of our lives and hearts.
Glory to You in the highest,
Blessed be Your holy name,
I will thank You and praise You
Until I die and then forevermore.
