Worthy of Praise
When you come into His house, what goes through your mind?
Do you think of all your troubles? Or do you leave them all behind?
Do you want to sit there quietly and just enjoy the view?
Do you hope no one notices you aren’t praising too?
The reason that we’ve come is to be in one accord,
Lifting up our hands, shouting praises to our Lord.
The God of love, the God of power, the One who made us all,
He’s the one we’re praising and He’s the one upon whom we call.
He’s given us our life, He’s given us power over sin,
He’s given us His Spirit that dwells down deep within.
Why not praise him in His house, praise Him in your pew?
Why NOT lift up holy hands and shout God I love you?!
Is it really such a burden, such a hard cross to bear?
Just to lift your voice and put your hands in the air?
Jesus didn’t seem to mind what he did for me and you
He was lifted in the air and on a cross he hung there too.
Doesn’t that mean anything? Doesn’t that touch your soul?
Doesn’t that make you want to shout and let the praises roll?
One day soon when Jesus comes and takes us all away,
I’m sure that there will be praises going up on that day.
But why wait for that day and time to lift up His Holy Name?
Why would you wait for the Rocks to Cry out and put you to shame?
Start today, start right now, lifting up those hands above.
Tell how much He Means to you and say His name with love.
Let the praises flow from deep within, let His Name be raised,
For He is good and He is mighty, and Worthy of all Praise.
