Sunday Praise (23) 2/10/19

Sunday Praise (23) 2/10/19. by me.

Blessed above all others,
Holy and righteous One,
Merciful, kind, and loving,
You’re the everlasting God.

I thank You for Your grace,
I worship You, living God,
I count Your mercies for me
And bless Your holy name.

This world is not my home,
In Heaven with You is my Home.
I wait patiently for the day
When I’ll see You face to face.

Eternity seems far away
But life on Earth is very short,
It’s over before we know it,
It’s fragile, brief, and passing.

I see the work of Your hands
And the greatness of Your deeds,
I worship and adore You, Lord,
I know there’s no one like You!

I enter Your presence with praise,
My heart rejoices in You,
You’re my soul’s comfort,
You’re the strength of my life.

The beauty of created things
Shows Your design and creativity,
Complexity discovered and yet unseen
Declare Your greatness and majesty.

I won’t stay silent, come what may,
The world system is hostile against You
But You’re worthy to be worshiped and obeyed,
I will declare Your name, Your love, Your ways.

You hold all things in Your hands,
You never lose control, Sovereign,
King of kings and Lord of lords,
All others are impostors, usurpers.

I will glorify You, God, Savior,
Until I die and then forevermore,
You are worthy and deserving
Of honor, glory, worship, praise.

Sunday Praise (22) 2/3/19. by me.

Lord, You are always worthy
To be glorified and praised,
Worshiped, exalted, adored,
None are like You, God.

The beauty in creation,
The works of Your hands,
How wonderful and creative,
It shows Your greatness, Lord.

I see it and enjoy it,
My heart is filled with praise,
I bring it to You, Father,
There is no one like You.

God, You are my Healer,
You’re the Great Physician,
The Mender of the broken,
You restore, remake, rebuild.

I have prayed to You,
You’ve heard and answered,
You gave what You knew
Would be best for me.

Every good thing that I have
Is a gift from Your hand, God.
You show me and all Your love,
Your grace is evident, O Lord.

I will not deny
Your part in my life.
I am not blind,
I see Your many works.

My flesh is weak, Father,
I seek Your strength daily,
I confess You’re my strength,
I am weak but You are strong.

I thank You for the Cross
On which Christ died for sinners,
Made a way for reconciliation
With You, Jesus is the only way to You.

I believe You love like no other,
You alone are so merciful and kind,
You’re holy, just, and righteous,
We all need Your grace and forgiveness.

Your love amazes me,
I long to know You more,
Your character and nature,
None compare to You, God.

For Christ’s death for my sins,
I thank You and praise You,
You deserve my lifelong love,
Eternal gratitude and glory.

I’m imperfect and I know it,
I fall and fail, I stumble and sin,
I come to You for forgiveness,
I repent, You help me change.

All other gods are dead and damned,
Worthless idols, counterfeits, poisons,
You alone are the true and living God,
Sovereign King of kings, Lord of lords.

I seek Your presence, Father,
To know and walk in Your ways,
To reach the lost with the Gospel,
To bring Your light to the condemned.

Father, use me for Your glory,
The strength You gave to help others,
The works I can do for their good,
Use me to bring them to You.

My Lord, the perishing need You,
Give me boldness, courage, strength
To speak the truth in love to them,
To share the hope in Christ with them.

Lord, You are merciful and just,
More patient than any person,
More loving and holy, incomparable
Living and true now and forevermore.

You’re the strength of my life,
You’re the hope of my soul,
You’re my salvation and praise,

You’re glorious, incomparable,

But I believe You know what’s best.

You’re deserving of all the glory,
You’re worthy to be forever praised,
Holy One, You merit worship, adoration,
You alone are the true and living God.

And then be forevermore with You,

What is there to say to You
Who deserve all the glory?
Can my praise due justice
To Your greatness, O Lord?

I am just a simple man
Who tries to love and obey
You who made all things,
You who deserves the best.

My heart keeps seeking words
Sincere and fitting to speak of You
Who created the universe and more,
You’re holy, righteous, perfect, God.

I cannot live without You, Creator,
I’m sustained by You every moment,
You know everything about me,
You know what’s best for me and all.

I want to know You better,
To obey You more faithfully,
To love You as You deserve,
To give my life, my heart, my all.

I lift up my soul to You,
King of kings and Lord of lords,
You’re Sovereign over everything,
My life and soul are in Your hands.

None can steal my joy
For You give me joy, God,
You’re my joy, can’t be stolen,
I rejoice in You, God Almighty.

You’re with me, Master,
You’re always near, Father,
You’re my hope and salvation,
I have no other god, You my God.

I can rejoice in You, God,
Even in the midst of pain,
In the toughest, hardest times,
Because You’re always with me.

Father, I know that You love me
And I know I still sin many times,
I come to You for forgiveness, mercy,
You show me grace and love like no other.

You clothe me with Your truth,
You protect, strengthen, empower,
You guide, lead, correct, discipline,
My Sustainer, Creator, Maker, Savior.

Daily You have mercy on me,
You amaze me with Your grace,
Your holiness brings me to humility,
You show me my place before You.

God, You guide me, lead me every day
On the narrow road You’ve placed me on,
You’re my strength and my victory,
Bring me to where You will decide.

I thank You that we have here
The opportunity to meet weekly
With other Christians in church,
To witness, pray, praise You, God.

This freedom I don’t take for granted,
We can gather without fear of death,
Hear testimonies, sermons, singing,
I thank for this, it’s a blessing, Lord.

Blessed be Your name, true God,
Blessed be You now and always,
Glory, honor, power, reverence,
All be to You now and forever.

Another Sunday has come,
You’ve given me another day
To see Your deeds performed,
To thank You that You’re You.

You give me what I need,
My heart rejoices in You
For there is none like You,
You’re the true and living God.

I won’t keep quiet about You,
I won’t keep my mouth shut,
You’re with me, You’re my courage,
You’re my light and salvation, Lord.

None can stand against You
And prevail in fighting You,
You’re undefeatable, victorious,
You’re above all, peerless Victor.

Abba, strengthen my heart again,
Worries come and fill my mind,
I need to focus on You more,
Lead me, have me as I am, use me.

Help me to love You, Father,
I know You’ll always love me
Despite my flaws, imperfections,
There’s no love like Your love, God.

You’re worthy of the best
I or others can offer You,
You’re deserving of glory,
Honor, wisdom, fear, love.

This day You’ve given me
To thank You for Your deeds,

Sunday Praise (18) 1/6/19

Sunday Praise (18) 1/6/19. by me.

Holy are You, God Almighty,
Righteous and just always,
Mighty in power, without rival,
Living and true, without equal.

There’s no power like Yours,
There’s no god but You, Lord,
There no love like Yours,
You alone are the true God.

By Christ’s blood I’m washed clean,
My sins are washed away, I’m forgiven,
Your Holy Spirit indwells me,
I abide in You and You in me.

At the Cross You’ve rescued me,
I am crucified with Christ
And I am alive with Him,
I’m a living sacrice for You, God.

There’s power in Christ’s blood
To wash away sins, to make clean
Filthy sinners long enslaved and dead,
You alone can give them new life.

At the Cross I see Your love for me
And I realize how unworthy I am,
I don’t deserve Your sacrifice,
I don’t deserve Your love, God.

I lift up my eyes and see the sky
You’ve made by Your great power
And for Your glory, Almighty God,
I praise You for what You’ve created.

Teach me to rejoice always,
To remember Your promises,
To show on the outside
The joy that’s inside.

Help me to praise You, Lord,
You deserve the best I can give,
You’re worthy more than any other
To be worshiped, honored, glorified.

Help me to better understand
What it means to be justified
By Christ, by His death on the Cross,
To remember imputed righteousness.

Jesus Christ is Your Beloved Son
In Whom You are well-pleased,
Heavenly Father, fill my heart
With thanksgiving for Christ.

My joy is in You, You’re my joy,
You’re my hope in the present
And my hope for the future,
You’re my King, Savior, God.

Blessed be Your holy name
In this new year every day,
Blessed be You, God, by all,
You’re worthy and deserving.

In the grey days cold and rainy
Help me to fix my eyes on You,
In the troubles of life to seek You,
In the easy days to thank You, Lord.

My life is Your hand, Abba,
None can pluck me from it,
My hope is sure for it’s in You,
My joy remains for You are it.

I see my growing need of You,
Lord, I’m not meant to be alone,
I can’t do what I must on my own,
I’m dependent on You always, God.

In the storms of this life
You’re my refuge, safe place,
In the darkest times I can see
You’re with me, You’re my light.

If all else falls apart around me
Help me to fix my eyes on Christ,
In sunny days and darkest nights
To trust You, my Father in Heaven.

God, help me to walk by faith
In the power of Your Spirit,
To obey You out of love for You,
To do all things for Your glory.

Despair won’t consume me
For You are my hope, Lord,
You’re the source of my joy,
My destiny is sure in You.

I praise You, Master, Savior, Lord,
I bless Your name, I bless You,
I’ve no other god, You’re my God,
My hope is in You, You’re my hope.
