My Highest Praise

Good morning brothers on this new week of Freedom Fighter blogs. I am so thankful that you are on this journey with us, and thank you for being a part of our lives.

I am in the process of reading through Psalms and Proverbs using the You Version app. I love Psalms and Proverbs.
One of the things that continues to bless me is reading King David’s writings and gaining wisdom on how to praise God. It’s just really good stuff to meditate on each day.

My friend and Pastor, John Strain, who serves as Chaplain at The Pines of Whiting, recently sent me this poem which expressed his praise to God. I asked permission to share it with you:

Lord of heaven, my Redeemer,

My highest praise to You I raise.

O God of love, Friend of sinners,

To You I raise my highest praise.

You have sought me; You have bought me.

You have saved me; You have cleansed me.

You have loved me; You have helped me.

To You I raise my highest praise.

 

My highest praise to You belongs,

Because Your love has filled my days.

No other one deserves my song;

To You I raise my highest praise!

 

You have sought me; You have bought me.

You have saved me; You have cleansed me. 

You have loved me; You have helped me. 

To You I raise my highest praise.

 

One day I’ll stand on heaven’s shore

Of You I’ll sing for all my days. 

Before Your throne my thanks I’ll pour;

To You I’ll raise my highest praise!

 

You have sought me; You have bought me.

You have saved me; You have cleansed me.

You have loved me; You have helped me.

To You, I raise my highest praise.
