1. O that I had a thousand voices To praise my God with thousand tongues My heart, which in the Lord rejoices Would then proclaim in grateful song Chorus: O praise the Lord, bless His Name forever Shout for joy, laud the Holy One. Honor Him, lift Your alleluias For all He is, and all He’s done. 2. O all ye powers that He implanted Rise up and silence keep no more Muster the strength that He has granted Your noblest work is to adore: Bridge: We shake off the sloth We turn from the world We renounce the gods Help us now, help us now We will join the song We will lift our hearts We will give our all Help us now, help us now 3 O Father as You stoop to listen Hearing our feeble songs and sighs May all our noise and imperfection Rise pure and sweet through Jesus Christ
1. I asked the Lord that I might grow In faith and love And every grace. Might more of His salvation know, And seek more earnestly His face Chorus: He made me feel The hidden evils of my heart. And let the angry powers of Hell Assault my soul. 2. He seemed Intent to aggravate my woe Crossed all the fair designs I schemed, Cast my feelings, laid me low Lord why this, I trembling cried Wilt Thou pursue thy worm to death? Bridge: Tis in this way, tis in this way The Lord replied "I answer prayer for grace and faith" 3: These inward trials I employ From self and pride to set thee free and break thy schemes of earthly joy That thou mayest seek thy all in me, That thou maye seek thy all in me.
Now begin the heavenly theme; Sing aloud in Jesus’ name; Ye who his salvation prove, Triumph in love. Chorus: Welcome all by sin oppressed, Welcome to his sacred rest; Nothing brought him from above, Nothing but redeeming love. Ye who see the Father’s grace Beaming in the Savior’s face, As to Canaan on you move, Praise and bless love. Bridge: Mourning souls, dry up your tears; Banish all your guilty fears; See your guilt and curse remove, Cancelled by redeeming love. When his spirit leads us home, When we to his glory come, We shall all the fullness prove Of Gods redeeming love.
how is it that something i cant even touch can introduce my knees to the floor, torment my soul, or make me happier than i thought humanly possible love is a reckless surgeon how is it that something i cant even touch possess the ability to control me better than myself, humble me to my bones, or feed me truth i called it a CURSE it grabbed me around the neck and choked me took me by the wrists and chained me to bottom of the dark abyss i call my heart. but someone met me there. His name is love and while unchaining me, the buckles that finally loosened revealed scars that i know wont go away. then he showed me His. i submitted to false gods. i knew their intentions were to chain me and i chased them anyways. still in that- He showed me a pretty lady named Grace. it was at the end of my tracks, hail mairy intercepted. no one was for me, not even myself. a self destructive savage, a shattered man, it was then i saw love
