Melodies of Praise

Postby Shirley Baucom » Mon Jan 09, 2017 1:22 pm

Melodies of Praise

Oh soul of mine, rejoice in the Lord
And give praise to His Holy Name
Great joy and thanksgiving bursts from my heart
As wonders of God’s Love I gladly proclaim;

That the earth is full of His Goodness,
Of the gifts of Christ’s Mercy and Grace…
And I give thanks to Him through heartfelt songs
For the blessings so free for me to embrace.

So great are His works throughout my life,
The melodies of praise are flesh ev’ry day;
I find these blessings seem to multiply
When I walk in His Word, trust Him and pray.

While patiently waiting upon the Lord,
Who’s always my help, my shield;
No earthly power will cause failure or fear
As to His Will and Way my life I yield

My heart and soul are lifted up
To Jesus with thanksgiving and praise.
May I continue to bless His Holy Name
As sweet melodies of love ... to Him I raise
.
