RISE UP AND PRAISE HIM

Tell me the story of Jesus, the story of the old rugged cross. Jesus paid it all. He is my Rock of ages. By His amazing grace, Jesus keeps me near the cross, and Iím leaning on the everlasting arms. I rise on eaglesí wings, and bow my knee. All praise be unto Your name.

I could sing of Your love forever. You are above all. Open my eyes that I may see that God is good all the time. You took my sins away, and I am washed in the blood, because nothing but the blood of Jesus can save me.

His Name is Wonderful. He keeps me singing. Donít you know that Jesus is the lover of my soul? His Name is the sweetest name I know. So I will praise Him when the sun goes down. What a Friend I have in Jesus. He gives me peace like a river, and a new name written in glory.

I long to see the Lion of Judah when the saints go marching in when the roll is called up yonder. You know I will be there. Then I will dance when I see the Lord Most High.

I want more of You. I am but the clay in the Potterís hand, and you are my beautiful Savior. This is the day that the Lord has made. Let God arise, and I will praise His Name forever because He lifted me. Isnít He wonderful?

All creation worships You and I will shout to the Lord. Be magnified in me. You are my Redeemer, Savior, Friend. Whom shall I fear.

PRAISE HIM INDEED! I love the way you put these songs together. It required much thought to do this, a different kind of creativity. Nice work.
