As Long as You Are Glorified

February 16, 2009

Shall I take from Your hand Your blessings

Yet not welcome any pain?
Shall I thank You for days of sunshine
Yet grumble in days of rain?
Shall I love You in times of plenty
Then leave You in days of drought?
Shall I trust when I reap a harvest
But when winter winds blow, then doubt?
Oh let Your will be done in me;
In Your love I will abide,
Oh, I long for nothing else as long
As You are glorified!

Are You good only when I prosper?
And true only when I’m filled?
Are You King only when I’m carefree,
And God only when I’m well?
You are good when I’m poor and needy.
You are true when I’m parched and dry.
You still reign in the deepest valley.
You’re still God in the darkest night.
So quiet my restless heart, quiet my restless heart,
Quiet my restless heart in You.

Be Unto Your Name

February 8, 2009

-by Lynn DeShazo and Gary Sadler

We are a moment, You are forever, Lord of the ages, God before time;
We are a vapor, You are eternal, Love everlasting, reigning on high.

Holy, holy Lord God Almighty, worthy is the Lamb Who was slain;
Highest praises honor and glory be unto Your name, be unto Your name.

We are the broken, You are the healer, Jesus, Redeemer, mighty to save;
You are the love song we’ll sing forever, bowing before You, blessing Your name.

Holy, holy Lord God Almighty, worthy is the Lamb Who was slain;
Highest praises honor and glory be unto Your name, be unto Your name.

“The gospel makes all the difference between whether you are merely conservative or whether you are conquering worldliness in the power of the Spirit for the glory of Christ.” -John Piper
