Gracefully she walks to the podium
With her bible in her hand
Her mind focused and ready
Her heart strong and steady
The Word implanted in her soul
Like an eagle waiting to sore.
Standing at the altar
Wearing the whole armour of God
She feeds everyone the bread of life
With Jesus as her guide
She puts in her all
For he is her strength
He is there when she calls
He is the reason for her getting this far
So why not give him the honor?
Without a struggle, without a doubt
She raises her head
And gives a great shout
Oh Lord, our God
How excellent is thy name!
Her voice vibrates the walls
And through every soul
As if the angels themselves
Couldn’t help but sing along.
She puts her trust in Jesus Christ
To speak through her and preach to us.
Holding firm the commandments of God
And the testimony of Jesus
She claps her hands and stomps her feet
Giving praise to the omnipotent one
For he is worthy of the praise
The father of creation
The master of all nations
The world shall bow in adoration
To the God of our salvation
There is no one like him.
No one can withstand the power of his character
Or understand the working of his nature
Filled with an abundance of mercies
Open doors to all opportunities
Pour on you a flood of blessings
Heals your body from all sicknesses
Places a shield of protection around you
Show you every day that you have value
Who dare say that God doesn’t love you?
Open your eyes and listen… listen…
His arms are opened wide for you to enter
He is forever knocking. Patiently waiting.
That is why she claps her hands and stomps her feet
That is why she prays for you and for me
That is why she can’t wait to give the Word
That is why she can’t wait to honor God
For He honors us in every way.
So why not honor him the same?
