ANGELS CRY

 

We lift up our hands

We lift our hands in praise to Your name

We lift up our voices

We make a joyful noise and proclaim

 

High and lifted up for all the world to see

Consume us with Your presence as we declare Your majesty

Manifest Your glory as heaven and earth adore you

With the angels we cry, "Holy, Holy"

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GOD HAS SMILED ON ME


God has smiled on me,
He has set me free.
God has smiled on me,
He's been good to me.


He is the cause of all my joy,
He fills me with His love.
Everything that I need,
He sends it down from up above.


A lamp unto my path is He,
Without Him I would fall.
I don't know what He is to you,
But to me He's my all and all.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MELODIES FROM HEAVEN

 

Melodies from heaven

Rain down on me, rain down on me

Melodies from heaven

Rain down on me, rain down on me

 

Take me in Your arms and hold me close

Rain down on me, rain down on me

Fill me with Your precious Holy Ghost

Rain down on me, rain down me

 

Rain down on me

Let it fall on me
