LET US ALL PRAISE OUR CREATOR GOD ~ AMEN
My heart is bursting with praise to my GOD
Every fiber of my being ~ sings praise
He showers me with joy of His Blessings
He forgives my sins and He heals my body
He covers me with love ~ restores my soul
He meets all my needs ~ and gives life purpose !
He is a GOD of justice ~ peace and love
He corrects our faults ~ He gives us power
Without GOD I'm weak ~ but with Him I'm strong
He knows and understands human nature !
Rejoice with me all you who love the LORD
Shout His praise each time you feel His presence
Serve Him in His Church and the Market Place
Lift your voice in praise to Him NOW ~ AMEN !
