That’s Why We Praise Him!

Good morning, friends.  Last week I was writing about Thanks, the first part of My Tea Cupp Prayers. This week I hope to share with you the second part:  E is for Exalt.  Most days I will find a verse that praises Jesus, like I did yesterday for Palm Sunday.  And I’ll tell Him how much I love Him and how thankful I am for saving me on the cross.  Somedays I will sing a song that praises Him or write a song in my prayer journal.  Here is a song we sang at church yesterday that praises Jesus and explains beautifully why we should exalt Him…

That’s Why We Praise Him (author unknown)

He came to live, live a perfect life
He came to be the living Word of light
He came to die, so we’d be reconciled
He came to rise to show His power and might

And that’s why we praise Him, that’s why we sing
That’s why we offer Him our everything
That’s why we bow down and worship this King
‘Cause He gave His everything
‘Cause He gave His everything

He came to live, live again in us
He came to be our conquering King and Friend
He came to heal and show the lost ones His love
He came to go prepare a place for us.

That’s why we praise Him, that’s why we sing
That’s why we offer Him our everything
That’s why we bow down and worship this King
‘Cause He gave His everything
‘Cause He gave His everything

He came to live, live a perfect life
He came to be the living Word of light
He came to die, so we’d be reconciled
He came to rise to show His power and might

And that’s why we praise Him, that’s why we sing
That’s why we offer Him our everything
That’s why we bow down and worship this King
‘Cause He gave His everything
‘Cause He gave His everything

Halle Hallelujah (10x)

That’s why we praise Him, that’s why we sing
That’s why we offer Him our everything
That’s why we bow down and worship this King
‘Cause He gave His everything
‘Cause He gave His everything

That’s why we praise Him, that’s why we sing
That’s why we offer Him…
