PRAISE HIM–PRAISE HIM!,,,by Carl Gooch

Praise Him, Praise Him

O Lord God Almighty,

Great is your love and mercy.

Just and true are your ways,

Your promises bless my days.

Praise Him… Praise Him,

The Lord God Almighty.

Praise Him… Praise Him

For He alone is Holy.

O Lord King of the nation,

Sacrificed for our salvation.

‘Twas for this sinner you came,

And I’ll glorify your name.

Praise Him… Praise Him,

The Lord God Almighty.

Praise Him… Praise Him

For He alone is Holy.

Our blind eyes now unsealed,

And His righteous acts revealed.

Come, all nations come to Him,

Join in worship and praise Him.

Praise Him… Praise Him,

The Lord God Almighty.

Praise Him… Praise Him

For He alone is Holy.

HONOR THE LORD WITH THY TONGUE

HONOR THE LORD WITH THY TONGUE

 

My Lord knows that when I’m stretched

I can’t keep it all together…

It’s not in the big things I act a wretch,

But in calmer weather.

I don’t have an excuse letting down my guard,

And singing a tune off-key…

Yet each of us have our baggage to claim

And that definitely includes me!

An impulsive comment that rises within

Is often my stumbling block…

Tho’ my lips start moving at some pretty girl,

I never or rarely take stock.

My wife’s had her problems, my medicine’s low,

While doubts and fears abound…

The Lord has my back as I well-know

Keeping my tongue on higher ground!!!!
