I praise His name, He is the Lord,
This holy One, this might chord.
With shouts of love, He sings to me,
My precious savior, God is He.
He bled and died that I might live,
Upon a cross His life did give.
He is the one that gave to me,
Eternal life and set me free.
I cried to Him, He came to me,
My life is changed for all to see.
This mighty One that bled and died
That I might live, new life inside.
He touched my life and made it whole,
The gifts He gave so I could grow!
The truth, the light and righteousness,
Sweet joys inside that He did bless!
He did it all when I was dead,
And brought me home, my life to wed,
And keeps to Him forever more
My heart, my soul, this golden door.
Now come to Him your tears removed,
And walk with Him new life approved.
Oh see His truth and take His hand,
His word, His life and make your stand.
Oh shouts of joy, oh shouts of joy!
My Savior's love, of shouts of joy!
This Holy One, my precious King!
I'll sing His praise, my voice shall ring!
