Why do we call You ...?

Lord, the Sovereign one.
My life is no longer mine,
You are my ruler.

God, The Creator.
Perfect, All-knowing, Righteous;
You deserve all praise.

Jesus, my best friend.
You are with me forever,
Sharing joy and pains.


Wish to call You Lord.
Renew in me a clean heart,
So I will seek you.
Fill me with righteous desire,
I want my life to bless You.

Your glory abounds,
The universe proclaims You.
All nature worships
With beauty You created.
How can I not offer praise!

I think this is the best of your work that I have read so far. You hit the nail on the head. How can we NOT praise Him???

I am sorry that I never responded to your comment on 1 John. Thanks for taking the time to type everything out like you did! It was great to read your comments and see how they matched and expounded on what I was thinking!

Unfortunately I don't always offer praise, I get caught up in my own things. I wish I could keep my mind and thoughts focused on bringing praise songs to Him - life could be so much better that way.

I am sorry that I never responded to your comment on 1 John.
Not a problem, glad my comments helped, if they did.

Since I'm already responding; your praise of my writing is appreciated, I've just never responded well to praise so generally don't [respond] here. But I do see all the comments (email notification), and do appreciate all of them.
