Sunday Praise (50) 8/18/19. by me.
What a wonderful new day it is
You’ve given me to live, O Lord.
I thank You for the oppurtunity
To praise You with Your Church.
With brothers and sisters in Christ
I lift up Your holy name, Abba, Father,
None are worthy of all glory and praise,
You deserve it, You’re living and true.
The sun rose and light has filled
The Earth I see until the horizon,
While others sleep so far away
Here the day moves, so active.
The universe is in Your hand,
You’re Creator, Maker, Architect,
Sovereign Ruler, King of kings,
Lord of lords, God Almighty.
The heavens praise You for Your deeds,
The Earth is full of Your glory, Lord,
In many congregations of Your saints,
Your holy name is exalted above all.
How great are Your works, Creator,
Wonderfully deep are Your thoughts,
Your beautiful creation rejoices me,
I’m awe-filled by the works of Your hands.
Many times I had nearly fallen deep
But Your hand of mercy upheld me.
In the increase of troubles in my heart
Your comforts were sweet to my soul.
I will sing to You all the days of my life;
The air in my lungs, heartbeat in my chest,
You’ve given me this gift, Creator of all,
While I have breath I will praise You, Lord.
My heart will bless Your name,
My soul will bless You, God,
With all that is within me
I will praise You, glorify You.
Your love knows no borders,
Truly it is like no other love,
Your mercy humbles me,
Your truth endures forever.
Lord, You’re my life’s foundation,
Christ, the Rock of my salvation,
Worthy to be loved and obeyed,
Above all exalted in the highest.
What I see and hear and read
I will use to praise You, Lord,
Lover of my soul, my all in all,
You’re my everything, living God.
Strong Leader, teach me to follow You,
Teach to love and obey You more daily,
I know I fail and stumble and fall often,
You reach out Your hand, You help me.
Teach me to do Your will, Abba,
To obey You as Christ obeyed You,
To trust in You with my whole heart
And not lean on my own understanding.
Teach me to love Your commandments,
Teach me to obey them as I should,
To learn obedience as Jesus Christ did,
As a child loves and obeys a loving parent.
Because of Your mercy, O Lord,
I have not died, have not perished,
You have shown me how to live,
You’re the Way, the Truth, the Life.
I find no greater comfort here than
Knowing You love me, God in Heaven,
You’ve saved me, gave me a new life,
I am Yours now and forevermore, Lord.
Great is Your faithfulness, God,
You are mighty in the highest,
You’re exalted in all the nations,
You’re exalted in all the Earth.
From everlasting to everlasting
You are the true and living God,
There is no other Savior but Christ,
There is no other God but You!
What You have given all of us
I praise You for everything, Lord,
Ever be exalted, Christ Jesus,
Glory to You my Savior, the Word.
