Let Me Praise Your Name

Let Me Praise Your Name

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Let Me Praise Your Name

 

Worthy of worship,

I bow to Your Lordship.

Honoring you in circumstances

At every chance.

 

Though all is up in the air.

Though life isn’t fair.

Though mountains stand in my way.

Let me praise Your Name.

 

The answer is found in You,

The Way, the Life, and the Truth.

In You, I can’t go wrong,

And I’ll never be alone.

 

Though I know not where my life leads.

Though I don’t feel free.

Though nothing in life stays the same,

Let me praise Your Name.

 

My trust is in Your power,

Let the Holy Spirit shower.

Rise up in me Your beauty,

For in You, I am free.

 

Help me not to forget

That in Jesus, all my needs are met.

So, through every change,

Let me praise Your Name.

Beautiful and powerful words.
"My trust is in Your power,
Let the Holy Spirit shower.
Rise up in me Your beauty,
For in You, I am free."
We need God to give us comfort and to know safety. Thank you Melinda for sharing the excellent poetry.

Not enough people today even bother to talk to Him...let alone praise His name. Thank you for always standing up for our God. Valentine

Melinda, As I've said before I feel inadequately and less than qualified to comment on religious beliefs expressed in verse. But I DO know that your writing style gives substantive voice to those beliefs, so in that way the write is an abounding success. take care...dan

This is nice Melinda and kind of weaves in and out of classical prayer and modern conversational style. Always good to experiment with different styles - it how things are kept fresh. Keep it up.
Oh, Happy New Year. :))
