Bless the Lord

See the work of His hand
in a rose fresh in bloom
in a child full of wonder
in a now empty tomb
See the work of His hand
in the life that He brings
Stand in awe, stand in wonder
to our God, stand and sing

Bless the Lord, O my soul
and all that is within me
Bless the Lord, O my soul
Bless His holy name

Feel the touch of His hand
in a warm summer breeze
as the waves crash with thunder
in the roar of the trees.
See the work of His hand
in the life that He brings
Stand in awe, stand in wonder
to our God, stand and sing

As far as the heavens are over the earth
as far as the east from the west
How far He has taken our sins from us
So great is the love of the Lord

Why oh Why

Standing on the front step
Staring out into the night
I ask myself why oh why
Have you forsaken me
Seems like at least a thousand times
Why oh why

Don’t turn your face from me
I’m reaching for you
Don’t turn your face from me
Why oh why

Walking through the crowd
Nobody knows I’m here
Why oh why
The vacant stares
They look but do not see
Why oh why

It is done
Now I lay me down
My walk is over
Your will is done
And with the rising of the Son
I am free

Now I am free
And your face shines on me
Now I am free
And your face shines on me

Glory

Misty morning mountain sunrise
Drops of dew like tears of joy
Meadowlarks sing songs of praise
We join in with all creation singing

Glory
Glory
Glory
To the name Of the Lord

Lazy river rolling through the open woods
The trees and rocks along it’s side
Lifting praise along the whisper of the wind
Joining all creation as we’re singing
