Thou Art Worthy~ Choir Song Next Sunday! =)

October 12, 2009

Honored, Exalted, Glorified

Our church choir will sing this song. Maybe next Sunday. I like to look over examples on the internet so I can get a better idea of how the song goes. . . I love choir!

When I go to Wednesday's practice I sit down, look around and observe my friends coming in, smile, sigh a contented sigh and then say a prayer I'm glad to pray . . .

Dear Jesus,

Here's a gift I lay before you and share with you. May you be glorified as this choir session begins. Thank you for our choir director and his wife. Thank you for their talents they share with us. Give them wisdom as they lead us. Dear Lord, I asked that you accept our offering of praise. Here, too, is my offering of personal praise. Thank you for the enjoyment of singing. =)

Lamb Of God~Choir Version

We're singing this song in choir =D around the first of November @ TBC.

I searched YouTube to find a choir version but couldn't find a very good one. Twila Paris does it wonderfully as a solo but you can't sing a solo when you're working as a group.

Twila Paris - Lamb Of God Lyrics @ SeekLyrics.com
Your only Son
No sin to hide
But You have sent Him,
From Your side
To walk upon this guilty sod
And to become the Lamb of God
Your gift of Love
They crucified
They laughed and scorned him as he died
The humble King
They named a fraud
And sacrificed the Lamb of God
Oh Lamb of God, Sweet lamb of God
I love the Holy Lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God
I was so lost I should have died
But You have brought me to Your side
To be led by Your staff and rod
And to be call a lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Chris the Lamb of God

No More Night By David Phelps

Rejoice O Christian!

Jesus will return like He promised. The hardships, frustrations and heartaches of this old world will pass. Don't give up, our reward is coming for eternity!

. . . Earth and Heaven will all pass away

. . . Gone is the curse by which I stumble and fell

. . . Evil is banished to eternal Hell!

. . . No more night, no more pain, no more tears, never crying again

. . . We will live in the light of the risen Lamb

. . . Praise to the The Great I Am!

God Is Good, Uncorruptable Treasure

God is good~

Jeremiah 9:

23 This is what the LORD says:
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,

24 but let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the LORD.

Uncorrupted treasure~

1 Timothy 6:

17Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant
nor to put their hope in wealth,
which is so uncertain,
but to put their hope in God,
who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

18Command them to do good,
to be rich in good deeds,
and to be generous and willing to share.

19In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
