Your Music Lifts me Up
The notes may waver as a tear creeps in,
But His songs I will sing again and again.
Overcome by feeling sometimes I pause,
I see His pain and I know I’m the cause.
A cloud of sorry lingers in the refrain,
As I sing praises to His Holy name.
This man carried my sorrow and shame,
The Lord most High has called me by name.
My heart sings out to my heavenly Host,
Filled with the Spirit; the Holy Ghost.
His kingdom promised, His love so near,
There’s nothing in this world that I’ll fear.
Let my heart be open as I sing out loud,
I’ll not be quieted by the worldly crowd.
In times of trouble or in time of pain
Let me be found praising you name.
Sometimes in quiet, in my sacred place,
My heart sings and I feel your embrace.
I eat the bread and drink from your cup,
Your music surrounds me and lifts me up.
