Freedom

My chains have been broken

I give all thanks to Thee

I now know the Truth

And the Truth has set me free

 

You loosed my restraints

Where once I was bound

The chains and the shackles

Fell straight to the ground

 

The bondage of slavery

That once held me tight

No longer has hold of me

Against it we fight

 

You arm me for battle

Your sword at my side

Girded in righteousness

Behind Your shield I hide

 

Your helmet, my salvation

Your belt of truth on my waist

And Your gospel of peace

My feet will carry all my days

 

Still the most precious gift

You’ve given to me

Your Spirit in my heart

Seals my identity

 

A child of the King, I am

Adopted by Your grace

Your love fills my heart

Your joy shines from my face

 

Forever I’ll live with You

In all eternity

Forever I am grateful

That You died on Calvary

 

Your death paid my ransom

The debt I owed to Thee

You defeated my opponent

I will claim my victory

 

My chains have been broken

I give all thanks to Thee

I now know the Truth

And the Truth has set me free

 

 

Shout for Joy to the Lord

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 100)

My blessed child, I have heard your prayer. I woke you with a song in your heart today. Listen to the song and respond in praise. Before you put your feet on the floor, shout for joy! I AM. I created you; you are mine. I am good. Enter my presence with thanksgiving. I have given you the breath of life, and I sustain your life every day. I alone am the source of your strength and joy. You can do all things today through Me. I am faithful to all generations. My love endures throughout eternity. Sing a new song of praise to me today.

Open your eyes, O child of the King

Open your heart and let praises ring

Open your ears to hear His sweet voice

Open your mouth and make joyful noise

 

 

In the wee hours of morning before you rise

When you lie in bed and open your eyes

Your heart releases a sweet song of praise

That reminds you who authors all of your days

 

 

With thankful heart, shout for joy to the Lord

Before you roll over and put feet to the floor

Remember who made you and to whom you belong

Praise Him again with the words of this song

 

 

Submit this new day to the Lord of the earth

The One who designed you and gave you His worth

Let Him lead you today on the path He has willed

And see how much joy in your heart He has filled

 

 

When morning turns the corner into afternoon

Remember the One who hung sun and moon

With thankful heart, shout for joy to the King

Let the words of this song burst forth as you sing

 

 

As the sun sets down the runway of day

Turn your heart to the One to whom you do pray

And thank him profoundly for the gift of this song

That gave you a way to praise him the day long

 

 

And when you climb into bed and try to sleep tight

Give thanks to the One who brings morning light

For this day He did give you along with a story

Shout for joy to the Lord, the King of all glory

Darlene Zschech – Shout to the Lord – Lyrics

 

My Jesus, my Savior Lord, there is none like You

All of my days, I want to praise

The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter

Tower of refuge and strength

Let every breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

My Jesus, my Savior Lord, there is none like You

All of my days, I want to praise

The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter

Tower of refuge and strength

Let every breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have

Shout to the Lord, all the earth, let us sing

Power and majesty, praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

Thank You, God

 

P3071400

 

 

 

 

 

 

God, thank you for creating me,

The heavens, earth, and deep blue sea.

Lord, thank you for the sun above.

Thank you for your endless love.

I’m grateful for your perfect peace,

And provision for my sin release.

 

Thank you for my Savior’s birth.

For sending Jesus to the earth,

To pay the debt for all my sin,

And give me new life to begin.

The old has gone, the new is here.

His perfect love casts out my fear.

 

Lord, thank you for the Holy Spirit

Who speaks to me so I can hear it.

Who tells me of your love for me

And convicts me of iniquity.

He counsels me, He is my guide.

Through trials He walks close beside.

 

Amazing God, the Three-in-One,

The Father, Spirit, and the Son,

I give you the glory you are due

You are the One God who is true.

My heart belongs to you alone.

My body is your earthly home.

 

You heal my hurts, you restore my soul.

You rebuild me, and you make me whole.

You turn my sorrows into laughter,

And give me new life ever after.

I’m sealed for your redemption day.

When you return and take me away.

 

Until that day, I’ll walk with you,

Read your Word, and obey it too.

I’ll listen to your voice within,

And try to live life without sin.

I’ll follow where you choose to lead.

You are my God and Lord indeed.

 

I love you, Lord, with all my soul.

My life I give you, take control.

Do with me what you have planned.

I submit to you and take your hand.

Lead me down paths that are straight,

And use me for the work you create.
