“I Praise You, Lord” from The Beloved

PraiseHolyHoly

When we see the Holiness of The Lord, our hearts become flooded with love. Seeing Christ brings a deep bow of humility and prayer of worship. Gratitude sweeps in like a soft arm that is holding with His Mercy; one that has held since that first moment of belief, now deeper, sinking with roots that find their way into the hours and minutes of day and night. His Holiness permeates all that reaches our hearts as we are lifted like flowers reaching to the sun. This wondrous Beloved, His Altar so high, yet given and giften through His Spirit. Miracle this, how we can pray. Flooded Love praises. Seeing Christ causes a blossom to hope, to believe and to reach with wondrous Love.

Psalm 136:1-7
God’s Gracious Love

136 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his gracious love is everlasting.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his gracious love is everlasting.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his gracious love is everlasting—

4 To the one who alone does great and wondrous things,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
5 to the one who by wisdom made the heavens,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
6 to the one who spread out the earth over the waters,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
7 to the one who made the great lights,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
8 the sun to illumine the day,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
9 and the moon and stars to illumine the night,
for his gracious love is everlasting—

“I rise, I rise” a worship poem from LWillows

IRiseIRiseBeloved

I rise, I rise. I wait, I wait.
I hope, I hope.
This day comes new,
hearts turn to You
Lifted, Risen,
we gaze lit view.

Come hours ahead
may steps be strong.
Fall all, call towards
Your glory, its song.
These hours, the minutes;
the sum
be Yours.

I rise, I rise. I wait, I wait.
I hope, I hope.
This heart made new
each hour full given.
Loved, lifted, risen,
from here in my pew.
