My praise

Was feeling defeated.  Then this song:

[Chorus:]
If this life has anything to gain at all
I’ll count it loss if I can’t hear you, feel you, ’cause I need you.
Can’t walk this earth alone.
I recognize I’m not my own, so before I fall
I need to hear you, feel you, as I live to make my boast in you alone.

[Verse 1:]
With every breath I take, with every heart beat,
Sunrise and the moon lights in the dark street.
Every glance, every dance, every note of a song.
It’s all a gift undeserved that I shouldn’t have known.
Every day that I lie, every moment I covet
I’m deserving to die, I’m just earning your judgment.
I, without the cross there’s only condemnation.
If Jesus wasn’t executed there’s no celebration.
So in times that are good, in times that are bad
For any times that I’ve had it all I will be glad.
And I will boast in the cross. I’ll boast in my pains.
I will boast in the sunshine, boast in his reign.
What’s my life if it’s not praising you?
Another dollar in my bank account of vain pursuit.
I do not count my life as any value or precious at all.
Let me finish my race, let me answer my call.

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
Tomorrow’s never promised, but it is we swear.
Think we holding our own, just a fist full of air.
God has never been obligated to give us life.
If we fought for our rights, we’d be in hell tonight.
Mere sinners owed nothing but a fierce hand.
We never loved him, we pushed away his pierced hands.
I rejected his love, grace, kindness, and mercy.
Dying of thirst, yet, willing to die thirsty.
Eternally worthy, how could I live for less?
Patiently you turned my heart away from selfishness.
I volunteer for your sanctifying surgery.
I know the Spirit’s purging me of everything that’s hurting me.
Remove the veil from my darkened eyes.
So now every morning I open your word and see the Son rise.
I hope in nothin, boast in nothin, only in your suffering.
I live to show your glory, dying to tell your story.

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Glory was solely meant for you.
Doing what no one else could do.
With All I have to give, (With all I have to Give)
I’ll use my life, I’ll use my lips. (My Lips Yeaaah)
I’ll only glory in your Word. What gift to me I don’t deserve.
I’ll live in such a way that it reflects to you, my Praise.

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)
by Matt Redman

[Chorus]
bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
worship His holy name
sing like never before
O my soul
i’ll worship Your holy name
the sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
it’s time to sing Your song again
whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
let me be singing when the evening comes
[Chorus]
You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
for all Your goodness i will keep on singing
ten thousand reasons for my heart to find
[Chorus]
and on that day when my strength is failing
the end draws near and my time has come
still my soul will sing Your praise unending
ten thousand years and then forevermore
[Chorus x2]
 
Jesus, i’ll worship Your holy name
Lord, i’ll worship Your holy name
sing like never before
O my soul
i’ll worship Your holy name
Jesus, i’ll worship Your holy name
i’ll worship Your holy name

Just to see You smile

Tim McGraw’s lyrics on the radio driving home reminded me of Philippians 3:7-11:

just to see You smile
i’d do anything
that You wanted me to
and all is said and done
i’d never count the cost
it’s worth all that’s lost
just to see You smile

But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
