JOY AND PRAISE….by Carl Gooch

Joy and Praise

With praise let our hearts be bound,
No finer treasure can be found.
His love shines like a rare jewel,
Let us sing a song of renewal.

Sing His praises before all men,
In heart filled worship glorify Him.
To you friends speak of His deeds,
Tell your family how He fills every need.

To your neighbor and all who will hear,
Tell them there is no more reason to fear.
Let the little children call upon His name,
May His love and mercy always be our aim.

Let our hearts overflow with His love;
And may our lives reflect God above.
Sing sweet a new song of joy and praise;
And may we walk close to Him all of our days.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
