He is My Strength

Through life's many trials strengthen me
Answer my plea
Walk by my side
With me abide.

Give me strength to face each new day
And never stray,
Make you my choice
Obey your voice.

I need strength only you provide
LORD, be my guide
Through darknest night
Please be my light.

My Life is in His Hands

As I look back over my life history.

What has happened is no mystery.

The places I never thought I'd go,

People I never expected to know,

Challenges overcame that helped me grow,

Things I've accomplished because of you,

That I never even dreamed I could do,

Trials that brought me to my knees,

Drew me even closer and closer to thee.

I will follow you all of my days,

Lift your name up in praise.

You've given my joy without measure.

All my blessings I will treasure.

From you I never want to roam.

Can't wait to see you in that heavenly home.

Praise Him in the Valley

Praise God when you're in the valley
and you are feeling blue.
Thank Him for the deliverance
cause He will see you through.

Thank Him in every season,
even when you grieve.
He will comfort you
never will He leave.

When life's trials come,
thank Him for each one.
Praise Him for the victory
He's given through His Son.

Praise Him every day,
whether sunshine or sorrow.
Thank Him at the close of day
for whatever comes tomorrow.

Choose to praise and worship,
not complain or whine.
Bring glory to His name
and your light will surely shine.

A Grateful Heart

Grant me a loving grateful heart
to daily honor you with my praise,
eyes to see all thy hand imparts
words to express the splendor of thy ways

As a little child help me see
blessings like a frog or toad,
marvel at a flower, a honey bee,
or the smell of a field freshly mowed.

Open my eyes to see even trials
as moments of growing closer to thee,
to hold as blessings all the smiles
of those nearest and dearest to me.

Father, I know I don't deserve
abundant blessings from thy hand,
but I will vow to always serve
and live my life as you command.

Help me acknowledge all you give
the grace, mercy and love you supply.
May gratitude be expressed in how I live.
Your name be glorified even when I die.

Your Devoted Servant I Remain

LORD over all creation,
I bow in adoration.
My lips are filled with praise.
I'll speak of you all my days.

You are the Savior who died,
for my sins was crucified.
You are the one I serve.
Your grace I don't deserve.

You are the mighty King.
A sacrifice to you I bring.
Over my heart please reign.
Your devoted servant I remain.
