Melodies of Praise

Post by Shirley Baucom » Mon Jan 09, 2017 1:22 pm

Melodies of Praise

Oh soul of mine, rejoice in the Lord
And give praise to His Holy Name
Great joy and thanksgiving bursts from my heart
As wonders of God’s Love I gladly proclaim;

That the earth is full of His Goodness,
Of the gifts of Christ’s Mercy and Grace…
And I give thanks to Him through heartfelt songs
For the blessings so free for me to embrace.

So great are His works throughout my life,
The melodies of praise are flesh ev’ry day;
I find these blessings seem to multiply
When I walk in His Word, trust Him and pray.

While patiently waiting upon the Lord,
Who’s always my help, my shield;
No earthly power will cause failure or fear
As to His Will and Way my life I yield

My heart and soul are lifted up
To Jesus with thanksgiving and praise.
May I continue to bless His Holy Name
As sweet melodies of love ... to Him I raise
.

Rita dear friend, thank you for reading my poem and commenting. I have just read your comments on the poem "The Touch of My Father's Hands", and am so glad you shared with me the account of what has happened with you and your husband. Please know that the two of you will be in my thoughts and prayers and I know God is going to honor your love and faith and bring your husband home safe to you, and the melodies of praise and thanksgiving you lift to God now will be even greater as you are together again. What a wonderful God we serve!
Love and prayers, Shirley
