NONE BUT YOU….by Carl Gooch


Loving Father, it is because of you alone

That my heart overflows with praise,

Quiet my soul and still my tongue

As you poor out Love’s blessing…

On your servant, holy hands raised!

Gracious King, your way is life,

Truth in your holy word for us to hear…

Your Holy Spirit given

To strengthen our way to Heaven;

Your presence allows no room for fear!

You rise majestically,

Give us rest when we’re weary…

From evil you lead and protect

And bless us ever direct,

A loving Father that wants our best!

My Lord and my God you are loving,

Your miracles faithful and true…

The God of my father’s father

There is no other like you!

WAIT ON THE LORD, by Carl Gooch

Wait on the Lord
O Lord, my heart overflows with thanksgiving;
Before all men do I sing your praise.
I bow before you giving thanks to your name,
Steadfast and faithful is your love.
I hold your word and your name higher than all;
It is the promise and proof of salvation.
At my lowest point I called to you, and you came;
You strengthened my soul with hope.
All the rulers of the earth should praise you;
They have heard the words of truth.
O Lord, the kings should sing of your ways,
For great is the glory of our God.
Your reign is most high; still, you know my name;
You care for your lowly servant.
Although trouble surrounds me, my life you guard;
You protect and provide for my needs.
The Lord will fulfill His righteous purpose for me;
Your steadfast love endures forever.
Let my heart be strong as I wait upon you my Lord;
As I wait on the work of your hand.
