I WILL SPEAK, by Carl Gooch

I will speak

Another morning comes, Lord.
And I lift my voice to you.
You hear my groans and pleas
And come to see me through.

You open my sleep filled eyes
To the beauty of the day.
Your word guides my feet
And blesses me along the way.

You provide for all my needs
That my body may be nourished.
You bless the work you gave me,
That your glory may flourish.

As the day grows long and hot,
You give me shade and rest.
You fill me with peace and love,
And strength to stand the test.

As the evening sun goes down
And my body is tired and week,
I read your loving promises,
And your praises I will speak.

ONE KING, by Carl Gooch

One King

Break the seal from my lips.
Let me proclaim your salvation.
I do not hide your faithfulness,
I speak of you before the nation.

I was wandering in the darkness,
No spark of hope to be found.
Great and wonderful your love,
That turned my life around.

Your grace reached out to me,
When no other would.
And your mercy paid the price,
That no other could.

Open my heart dear Lord,
And let the praise pour out.
Let joy and gladness ring true,
As from the mountains I shout.

I will speak of how you came
And calmed my every fear.
I will tell your loving promise,
To any ear that will hear.

The Lord my God is my purpose.
He is my breath, my everything.
He set me free; I will serve Him.
My heart says, I have but one King.
