Sunday Praise (39) 6/2/19. by me.
The day begins with darkness,
The night covers the lands,
The dawn welcomes morning,
God, You’ve made it this way.
The sun rises in the east
And moves until we see
It then sets in the west
And the day comes to an end.
It’s interesting to think about
The way things happen daily,
And we take it for granted
As if nothing will change.
We rush and follow distractions
And we lose focus of You, Lord,
You call us to be still and know
You are the true and living God.
It’s strange that many don’t
Worship You, God Almighty,
Like You don’t matter or exist
But You sustain their very existence.
Lord, it takes more than just time
To realize what’s truly important
In this life we live here on Earth
And what matters eternally.
To fix our eyes on Jesus Christ
Gives life stability and hope.
To do all things for Your glory
Is an honor, a blessing, imperative.
The blood of the Lamb of God
Can wash away our guilt and sins.
The blood of Jesus Christ the Savior
Can make us whole again, give new life.
By His Blood, by His death on Calvary
He has ransomed us, redeemed us,
Made atonement for all of our sins,
We’re saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ.
By His death Christ reconciled us
To the Father, now we’re God’s children.
We see what a great manner of love it is
That we are and are called His children!
There’s hope and meaning for us,
We live not like the worldlings now,
We’re soldiers in Christ’s army,
We have on the full armor of God.
In You, Father, Lord Almighty,
I find refuge, rest, and comfort.
It’s a blessing to praise You,
To enter into Your presence.
May the fire of Your joy and presence
Be my trust, experience, and delight.
May my heart ever be filled, o Lord,
With Your love, to ever glorify You.
I can never forget the Cross
On which Christ died for my sins,
He shed His blood, He died for me,
The innocent One died for the guilty.
I can never thank You enough
For all that You’ve done for me.
I know You’re the only one worthy
To receive all honor, glory, praise.
King of kings and Lord of lords,
I bow to You in humility now.
God of gods and Almighty Sovereign,
I fall prostrate before You, Holy One.
I am realizing it more each day
How important it is to have Your love
In the heart and in the life,
In word and in deed show Your love.
You’re always near, always with us,
Our Father in Heaven, be blessed,
Glory to You now and forevermore,
Holy and righteous, just and loving.
You make whiter than the snow
Those who are Your children
By the blood of Jesus Christ
The Lamb of God slain for sinners.
Glory to Your name, living God,
Praise and laud be given to You,
Adoration and reverence by all
Is Your due, holy and true Lord.
Savior of sinners, Healer of souls,
Redeemer and Ransomer of the lost
Slaves to sin, children of the enemy,
You adopt those who will believe on You.
You rescue the lost and the wretched,
You restore the broken and ruined,
You mend and heal the deepest wounds,
You comfort, You sympathize, You love.
There is truly no one like You,
You’re the true and living God,
All counterfeits be damned,
Be lifted above all, Almighty!
You’re exalted in the nations,
You’re glorified by Your children,
You’re glorified by Your creation,
Now and forevermore be glorified!
