“1I will confess and praise You [O God] with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praises to You. 2I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!” Psa 138:1-2 AMP
My Desire is to reveal God’s love and power
And to exalt His word and name;
To bring glory to our risen Savior
Not to be in any hall of fame.
I desire to protect my Lord’s reputation,
And make known to all His lavish love;
To praise His name above all names,
And delight in His peace and joy from above.
My Desire is to uplift my Savior,
Who died so humble and obedient,
So He may save this one lost world,
So ungracious and willfully defiant.
May those who receive an abundance of grace
And heaven's gift of righteousness,
Reign in life through their Savior
And demonstrate His loving kindness.
My Desire is to reveal God’s promises
To those who feel weak,
That they might be strengthened,
Because His word they now seek.
May my readers find their Savior
And experience His mighty power;
May they reach out for His mercy
When the roaring lion attempts to devour.
My Desire is that we are all thankful
For the Father and the Son.
Thankful that both would deem us worthy
To sacrifice so much that our redemption be won.
Thankful for the Holy Spirit
And the numerous gifts of heaven;
Thankful for God’s tender mercies
And His abundant love so graciously given.
