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.

PRAISE NOW MY LORD

Praise Now My Lord
 
Praise the Lord, for He is just and good.
Give Him the thanks you know you should.
Proclaim the mighty act known to your sight;
Blessed be the voice of truth that speaks right.
 
Remember me Lord, when you favor this land;
Let me be a servant and follow your command.
May I see your blessings and sing your praise;
And may I know your love and follow your ways.
 
I’ve sinned and acted a fool, rebelling against you;
I have no excuse; I plea for mercy simple and true.
The only miracle I have is the hope that I find in you;
You are my amazing grace, my comfort my salvation true.
 
It was you that came into a sin filled world for me.
It was you that came and fulfilled the law for me.
It was you that came and suffered and died for me.
It was you that came and rose from the dead for me.
It was you that came and gave life a purpose for me.
It is I that give you praise now my Lord.
