I WILL PRAISE YOU

by Marcie Bridges, @Marcie_Bridges

“Now therefore, our God,
We thank You
And praise Your glorious name.
But who am I, and who are my people,
That we should be able to offer so willingly as this?
For all things come from You,
And of Your own we have given You.
For we are aliens and pilgrims before You,
As were all our fathers;
Our days on earth are as a shadow,
And without hope.”
1 Chronicles 29:13-15








I WILL PRAISE YOU

I will praise You, Lord
for You are the help of my strength
The Mighty One to save
there is none like You day unto day.
You go before me to lead my way
You come behind me to keep me from going astray
Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens
and dwells in the midst of the waves.

How can I give You thanks?
my heart longs for You like a
puppy waits for his childhood mate
could I not live if not for Your grace?
Blessings I count too numerous to say
my heart overflows like Jordan’s banks
I look to You for my salvation today
thank You Lord for your mercies great
new every morning like a sunrise in paint.

And I will praise You, Lord
no matter what comes
I will praise You, Lord
because You are worthy of all my praise.
This I know as I stand here now
You alone are Redeemer renown
I can put my whole trust in You
for You have proven Yourself
faithful and true.

I will praise You, Lord
whatever may be
You alone worthy of praise
from everything that breathes.
