The Praise Goes On and On - lyrics

The Praise Goes On & On

(verse 1)

Angels falling down before Him
overwhelmed by splendor
dazzled by the light they see
Glory filling hearts with wonder
mysteries and marvels
all in perfect peace

(chorus)

and the praise goes on and on
around God’s holy throne
night and day all heaven lifts His Name in song
as eternity unfolds
the thrill of knowing Him will grow
we will not grow tired of that awesome place
where the praise goes on
where His Presence fills each song
the praise goes on and on and on

(verse 2)

Thunder, His voice shook like thunder
and His face was shining
like the sun in all her strength
Jesus, now enthroned forever
yet our friend and brother
glorious Lord and King

(repeat chorus)

Who Is Like The Lord

(verse)

Who is like the Lord in glory?
Who is like the Lord in power?
Who is like the Lord in splendor?
Who is like the Lord?
Who is like the Lord?

(chorus)

Who can speak a word and worlds are made
Blind can see, the dead are raised
Old and worn out He makes new
There’s no end to what He can do
Flaming tongues of angels sing His praise
Dazzled by His awesome ways
Rich in mercy, great in care
Who is like the Lord our God?
Who can compare?

(verse 2)

Who is like the Lord our Father?
Who is like the Lord our Master?
Who is like the Lord our Savior?
Who is like the Lord?
Who is like the Lord?

Its Been Mercy All The Way

verse 1)

Lord, I thank You for Your faithful mercy
all my footsteps have been guarded by grace
from this moment on my heart will praise You
Lord, I love You,  Lord, I love You

(chorus)

Mercy,  Mercy goodness and kindness
love and forgiveness
Mercy,  Mercy
its been mercy all the way
its been mercy all the way

(verse 2)

You have loved me with a great compassion
You have spared me from the pain I deserve
here’s my heart oh may it bring You pleasure
Lord, I love You
Lord, I love You

(repeat chorus)

God Came Near

One night heaven’s majesty was seen momentarily
When God came near
The infinite deity lay cradled on Mary’s knee
When God came near
The innkeeper must not have seen
His star in the east that shone ‘round the manger
Was this   how a king should be born,
So helpless and poor, cast off as a stranger?
Yet He chose in this way to appear
With a song humble shepherds could hear
Our God came near

From ageless authority to lowly nativity
Our God came near
The world had never seen such awesome humility
When God came near
He showed us through laughter and tears
In thirty short years the heart of the Father
Would God take a body of dust,
And walk among us then die as our Savior?
Yet He chose in this way to appear
On a night long ago bright and clear
Yes, He chose in this way to appear
With a song humble shepherds could hear
Our God came near

I Want To Love You More

(verse 1)

I love You, Lord
but I want to love You more
You are my heart’s treasure
there’s no love as strong and true as Yours
You are my great reward
I want to love You more

(verse 2)

I serve You, Lord
but I want to serve You more
cleanse my every motive
‘till my heart beats only with Your own
and all my thoughts are pure
I want to serve You more

(verse 3)

I praise You, Lord
but I want to praise You more
greatness beyond measure
who can fathom all Your grace and power
I worship and adore
I want to praise You more

(verse 4)

I know You, Lord
but I want to know You more
draw me ever nearer
to Your cross and resurrection power
there is no other Door
I want to know You more

I want to serve You more
I want to praise You more
Lord, I want to love You more

It is Better To Wait On The Lord

(verse 1)

It is better to wait on the Lord God Almighty
and put your trust fully in Him
It is better to look for His wisdom and timing
than lean on what you understand

(chorus)

We have a Father Who sees from above
He knows when we have been tested enough
He works together all things on behalf
of the children that He dearly loves
so take heart and be strong
though His ways may seem long
it is better to wait
better to wait on the Lord

(verse 2)

It is better to wait for provision from heaven
than to anxiously forge on ahead
it is wise to give up any idol we treasure
and strive for contentment instead

(repeat chorus)


God Shall Be Praised

God shall be praised and His Name be revered
kneel at His throne in holy fear
each bright new morning offers reason to adore
and magnify our worthy Lord

Beauty more splendid than our hearts have known
shines forth in brilliance from His throne
all who live near Him are forever overwhelmed
they never cease His praise to tell

no human author has found words that tell
no song yet written says it well
even the angels cannot bring Him praise enough
none can describe such boundless Love!

God shall be praised though the darkness increase
though men rebel and goodness cease
soon comes that final Day when every knee shall bow
how wise are those who serve Him now

Rise now with courage:  God’s will shall be done
Jesus shall reign:  His Kingdom come
Heaven shall thrill us with delight for endless days!
and God shall be praised:  God shall be praised

Oh Halleluia!

(verse 1)

I heard what sounded like a great multitude
their song was heard throughout all the universe
and their voice was like the rushing of great waterfalls
like the mighty peals and rumblings of the thunder
they were shouting and singing and rejoicing. . .

(Chorus)

Oh Halleluia!  Oh Halleluia!  Oh Halleluia!
Our Lord God Almighty reigns!
Oh Halleluia!  Oh Halleluia!  Oh Halleluia!
Our Lord God Almighty reigns!
Our Lord God Almighty reigns!

(verse 2)

I knew someday I’d sing with that multitude
with all the saints redeemed by His precious blood
wearing linen bright and clean for the wedding feast
filled with wonder and amazement at the Bridegroom
we were shouting and singing and rejoicing. . .

(repeat chorus)

Awesome Power

Awesome power, boundless grace
Who can fathom all Your ways?
Truth and love are found in Your heart alone
Righteousness surrounds Your throne

Holy, holy, holy Lord Most High
Holy, holy, holy Lord Most High

Jesus Loves Me Like No Other

(verse 1)

No man was bruised or marred as He
no heart more crushed by grief
my sin and shame He carried there
robbed Him of all relief

(chorus)

Jesus, Jesus loves me like no other
Jesus, Jesus faithful friend and brother
loves me like no other

(verse 2)

By thorns and fists, by nails and spear
that precious blood did flow
this happened long before I knew
how Jesus loved me so

(repeat chorus)

(verse 3)

One empty tomb:  One glorious Life
one Man who lived to serve
my holy God,  my Lord and King
my dearest Friend on earth!

(repeat chorus)

I Will Worship You

(verse 1)

Overwhelmed by each display of Your vast creative power
every blazing star and galaxy; every tiny flower
Oh the wonder of it all has inspired my heart to praise
when I ponder all that Your hands have made
I will worship You Oh Lord, I will worship You

(verse 2)

Overwhelmed by faithfulness You provide beyond my needs
in Your perfect time You show Your hand to divide the sea
I cross over on dry land ‘till I’m safe upon the shore
for Your wisdom and all Your power, Lord
I will worship You Oh Lord, I will worship You

(verse 3)

Overwhelmed by endless love, teach my heart until I see
how my faithless heart weighed You down with much agony
 though my sin reached to the sky, Your compassion passed the stars
now its love that fills this grateful heart
I will worship You Oh Lord, I will worship You

(verse 4)

Overwhelmed by what shall come as that final Day draws near
though I ache at times with longing heart
‘till my Lord appears
Oh the wonder of it all! What a day that Day shall be!
With my heart aflame for eternity
I will worship You Oh Lord, I will worship You!
