PRAISE CHORUSES

 

WONDERFUL IS YOUR NAME

 

All of my life I've never known You to fail
You remain the same and wonderful is Your name
All of my life I've never known You to fail
You remain the same and wonderful is Your name

 

You woke me up this morning, started me on my way
You put food on my table, You brought joy to my day
I'm glad Your love has never changed
And wonderful, and wonderful, and wonderful
Wonderful is Your name

 

VAMP

For the rest of my life, I'll serve Him
For the rest of my life

 

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

 

HIGH PRAISE 

 

The Lord is high above the heavens
And His glory above the nations
(2x)

Give God the highest praise
Acknowledge Him always
And all the people say
Halle, Halle, Hallelujah

Hallelujah! 

 

  

HERE I AM TO WORSHIP 

 

Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness 

Open my eyes, let me see 

Beauty that made this heart adore You 

Hope for a life spent with Thee 

 

Here I am to worship 

Here I am to bow down 

Here I am to say that You’re my God 

You’re altogether lovely 

Altogether worthy, 

Altogether wonderful to me 

 

King of all days, O so highly exalted 

Glorious in heaven above 

Humbly You came to the earth You created 

All for love’s sake became poor 

 

I’ll never know how much it cost 

To see my sin upon that cross 

 

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

 

 LEAD ME, GUIDE ME

 

Lead me, guide me along the way 

For if You lead me I cannot stray 

Lord let me walk each day with Thee 

Lead me O Lord, lead me 

 

I am weak and I need Thy strength and power

To help me o'er my weakest hour

Help me through the darkness, Lord thy face to see

O lead me, O Lord, lead me

 

 

 

BLESSED ASSURANCE

 

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His spirit, washed in His blood

 

CHORUS

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

 

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior, am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

 

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

 

BREATHE ON ME

 

Breathe on me, breathe on me

Holy Ghost power breathe on me

Yesterday's gone, today I'm in need

Holy Ghost power breathe on me

 

Rain on me, rain on me

Holy Ghost shower rain on me

Yesterday's gone, today I'm in need

Holy Ghost shower rain on me

 

Burn in me, burn in me

Holy Ghost fire burn in me

Yesterday's gone, today I'm in need

Holy Ghost fire

Holy Ghost shower

Holy Ghost power breathe on me

 

Breathe on me . . .

Giving from the Heart

 

The Junior Church Ministry invites you and your families to join our students and teachers in our project of support and care "Giving from the Heart". We will be collecting donations to help Pathways Family Shelter.  The items that are in great need at the shelter are; toiletries, diapers, baby wipes and gift cards.  This will help those families who arrive at the shelter without anything at all.  On December 5th a basket will be placed in the Narthex of the church for the donations, this will be the only day that the basket will be available for donations.  Please consider opening your heart to those many families in need by making a donation.  Thank you!
