SONG LYRICS

Praise To The Lord (Joyful Joyful)

Praise to the Lord, The Almighty, the King of Creation
O my soul, praise Him,
For He is your health and salvation
Come all who hear, Now to His temple draw near
Join me in glad adoration

Praise to the Lord,
Above all things so wondrously reigning
Shelters thee under His wings
And so gently sustaining
Have you not seen all that is needful has been
Sent by His gracious ordaining

Praise to the Lord,
Who will prosper Your work and defend you
Surely His goodness and mercy shall daily attend you
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriends you

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold life flowers before Thee
Op’ning to the sun above

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold life flowers before Thee
Op’ning to the sun above

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him
All that has life and breath
Come now with praises before Him
Let the amen sound from His people again
Gladly forever adore Him

My Savior’s Love (I Stand Amazed)

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner condemned unclean

How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
And suffered and died alone

How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see
‘Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me

How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Saviour’s love for me

The Lord Is My Salvation

The grace of God has reached for me
And pulled me from the raging sea
And I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation

I will not fear when darkness falls
His strength will help me scale these walls
I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun
The Lord is my salvation

Who is like the Lord our God
Strong to save faithful in love
My debt is paid and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

My hope is hidden in the Lord
He flow’rs each promise of His Word
When winter fades I know spring will come
The Lord is my salvation

Who is like the Lord our God
Strong to save faithful in love
My debt is paid and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

Glory be to God the Father Glory be to God the Son
Glory be to God the Spirit The Lord is our salvation

Glory be to God the Father Glory be to God the Son
Glory be to God the Spirit The Lord is our salvation

Who is like the Lord our God
Strong to save faithful in love
My debt is paid and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation

Who is like the Lord our God
Strong to save faithful in love
My debt is paid and the victory won
The Lord is my salvation
The Lord is our salvation
The Lord is our salvation

I Will Sing Of My Redeemer

I will sing of my Redeemer And His wondrous love to me
On the cruel cross He suffered
From the curse to set me free

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free

I will tell the wondrous story
How my lost estate to save
In His boundless love and mercy
He the ransom freely gave

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free

I will praise my dear Redeemer
His triumphant power I’ll tell
How the victory He giveth
Over sin and death and hell

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free
