Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!Praise Him, all creatures here below!Praise Him above, ye heavenly hosts!Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! ***
Come Thou Fount
Come Thou fount of every blessingTune my heart to sing Thy grace;Streams of mercy, never ceasing,Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,Sung by flaming tongues above;Praise His name--Im fixed upon it-Name of Gods redeeming love.
Hitherto Thy love has blest me;Thou hast brought me to this place;And I know Thy hand will bring me Safely home by Thy good grace. Jesus sought me when a stranger,Wandering from the fold of God;He, to rescue me from danger,Bought me with His precious blood. O to grace how great a debtor Daily Im constrained to be!Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, Bind my wandering soul to Thee: Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,Prone to leave the God I love;Heres my heart, O take and seal it;Seal it for Thy courts above. ***Hosanna
Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest!Hosanna! Hosanna!Hosanna in the highest!
Lord, we lift up Your name,With hearts full of praise;Be exalted, oh Lord, my God!Hosanna in the highest!Glory! Glory!Glory to the King of kings!Glory! Glory! Glory to the King of kings!Lord, we lift up Your name,With hearts full of praise;Be exalted, oh Lord, my God!Hosanna in the highest!
Lord, we lift up Your name,With hearts full of praise;Be exalted, oh Lord, my God!Hosanna in the highest!***

Two last thoughtsPauls own testimony of desire: It is my eager expectation and hope that . . . Christ will be honoredin my body, whether by life or by death (Philippians 1:20). His exhortation to us 1 Corinthians 6:19-20: You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
