(I love to praise Him)

I love to praise His name
I love to praise His holy name.

He's my rock, my rock, my sword and shield,
He's my wheel in the middle of a wheel.
I know He'll never, never let me down;
He's just a jewel that I have found.

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I love to praise His name.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I love to praise His name.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I love to praise His name.
I love to praise His holy name.

 

 

WE WORSHIP YOU

 

You’re the One, we wait on You to come.

We worship You, we worship You

Fill this place, Your glory on every face.

We worship You, we worship You.

 

We lift our hands, Lord, here in your presence.

We worship You, we worship You.

Forever, my Savior, I live to praise You.

We worship You, we worship You.

 

Heaven, come; Lord won’t You make us one.

We worship You, we worship You.

Fire, fall, come and consume us all.

We worship You, we worship You.

 

We lift our hands, Lord, here in your presence.

We worship You, we worship You.

Forever, my Savior, I live to praise You.

We worship You, we worship You.

 

 

I REALLY LOVE THE LORD

 

I really love the Lord

I really love the Lord

You don't know what He's done for me

He gave me the victory

I love Him, I love Him

I really love the Lord

 

 

LOVE DIVINE ALL LOVE EXCELLING

 

Love divine all love excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, All Thy faithful mercies crown

Jesus, Thou art all compassion, Pure unbounded love Thou art

Visit us with Thy salvation; Enter every trembling heart.

 

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit into every troubled breast

Let us all in Thee inherit, Let us find that second rest

Take away our bent to sinning; Alpha and Omega be

End of faith, as its beginning, Set our hearts at liberty.

 

 

THEY NEED TO KNOW

 

They`ve taken Christ from Christmas
Filled it with earthly joys
Like Frosty and Rudolph
Even a drummer boy
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
Sent down to save the world from sin
That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know

They`ve taken Christ from Christmas
Replaced him with toys and games
The world really needs to know
That`s not why he came
They need to know that Christ is Christmas
They need to know that Christ is Christmas

 

Sent down to save the world from sin
That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know

They need to know he came to save the world
Sent down to save every precious

boy and girl
Sent down to save the world from sin

 

That`s why he came my friend
They really need to know

 

 

JESUS PAID IT ALL

I hear the Savior say,
"Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all."

Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow'r and Thine alone,
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone.

 

For nothing good have I
Where-by Thy grace to claim;
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv'ry's Lamb.

And when, before the throne,
I stand in Him complete,
"Jesus died my soul to save,"
My lips shall still repeat.

 

 

WHAT YOU GONNA NAME YOUR BABY

 

What you're gonna name your little baby, Mary?
What you're gonna name your little baby, Mary?
In a little town called Bethlehem they was a little meek and humble lamb
Now what you're gonna name your little baby, Mary?

 

Angels appeared to Joseph in a dream, Mary
I'm gonna make your son a king, Mary
He said, fear not to take her as your wife
God's gonna make everything alright
What are you gonna name your little boy baby, Mary?

 

One day Moses heard Him when He called from the fire
Take off your shoes, let me take you higher
He came to the poor, He came to the lost
He's gonna reach out at any cost
What you're gonna call your little baby, Mary?

The wise men traveled from afar, Mary
They were guided by a shining star, Mary
They brought their gold, frankincense and myrrh
When the angels sang this is what they heard
"Glory to God in the highest"
Peace to all mankind, glory
This little baby born in a manger he'll give you peace of mind

 

Somebody call Him wonderful
Mighty God and Prince of peace
Somebody call Him Alpha and Omega
He is my priest
Moses said he saw Him in a burning bush one day
John talked about Him
This is what He said
God gave His son
And the son gave His live
That we might have the right to the tree of life

 

I'm gonna call the little boy baby Jesus
Jesus, Jesus
Wanna call Him Jesus
Adam's redeemer, yes He is
And He's Gabriel's shield
He's Raphael's courage
And Ezekiel's wheel
Jesus

Wednesday Night Bible Study

Why Not come out [ on zoom] on Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm and study the word of God. On this Wednesday, December 15th we will start a new study: The Book of Ruth. Many of us have heard of Ruth from Sunday School and sermons. But did you know that Ruth is a pivotal character that links us to the promise of God sending Jesus Christ as our savior. Join us for this study, for the story of Ruth is the story of people being brought into the family of god's people, through faith in Yahweh, although she was born a foreigner and a stranger. Above up join us in study to understand better that God is still faithful in keeping his covenant promises and demonstrating his covenant love to those who are unfaithful to him.

 Join us on Wednesday, December 15th at 7:30 pm
