Just outside the Eastern gate there’s a commotion The rumor is the King is coming soon The crowd all gathers waiting for His coming It may be evening, morning or at noon They stand and watch with great anticipation For His coming is an answer to their prayers All their lives they have had trials and tribulations When the King comes back true freedom will be theirs They have praised Him here on earth for generations They have served Him in every way they could They have spread the story of His soon arrival So that His great love would be understood Then they saw Him seated on a white horse Dressed in royal garments white as snow On His thigh was written King of Kings And He entered as the Lord of Lords The crowd sang Glory Hallelujah to the King Glory Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords Worthy is the one who comes riding on the clouds To take His precious children home Glory, Hallelujah to the King Glory Hallelujah to the Lord Worthy is the one who comes riding in the clouds To take His precious children home.
Time for me to rise To greet the morning light To see a bright sunshine In the eastern sky Time for me to rise To open up my eyes I’ve come to realize You are always by my side So, I will say my prayers And I will lift my praise Glory to the Father Glory to the Son Glory to the Spirit Three in one Praise and adoration Lifted to my Lord I will lift my voice to Him I will lift my hands to Him I will lift my heart to Him Jesus Christ my Lord
I wish I could fly I wish I could soar above the trees To see what it was like To be free I wish I could soar Above the mountains grand To see what eagles see Through the land But I can’t I wasn’t made that way I was made to walk this earth To live this life for Him CHORUS Lord, help me do my best Lord, help me tell the world That Jesus reigns. Jesus reigns Lord, help me walk with you Lord, help me speak the words of truth The Jesus reigns. Jesus reigns I wish I could float Like a cloud in the sky Seeing all the world around And pass by But I can’t I wasn’t made that way I was made to walk this earth To live this life for Him CHORUS BRIDGE He reigns in majesty. He reigns in truth He reigns above all things. He reigns in you He reigns in heaven. He reigns on earth He reigns to save your soul. He died for you CHORUS
There are times I sit in wonder at God’s love for me It seems he’s always right there walking beside me And when I seem to falter, He’s there to pick me up When I’m dry and thirsty He’s there to fill my cup There are times I cannot fathom how He does these things That bring such great delight to life through ordinary things Like friends that show up at your door when you need it most Or someone comes from nowhere to show He loves you so There are times I look to heaven and thank my God above For all the riches of His grace and glory of His love He has a way of showing me each day how much He cares By all those simple things in life that He brings unawares There are times I bow in reverence and say my daily prayers Because I know He hears each word for He is always there And when He brings the answer, I will lift my voice in praise To the one that I call Savior, Jesus Christ is His sweet name
I wrote this song back in 2012 and just got around to recording it. One of my favorites, though. It expresses my heart pretty good
