Hymn & Scripture Challenge #13 / O For a Thousand Tongues

It is so funny, but when I do these Hymn Challenges, I sing the songs from the time I start them for at least a week afterwards.  And this is one of those songs that show just how much we are to praise our Lord and how he desires our praise. I can not tell you the last time I sung this song, but it is one I knew by heart when I saw it.

Revelation 4:11 says, “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”

Psalm 18:3 says, "I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies."

You see it is by His will that we all exist today.  He made each one of us, gave us
the air we breath and loved us from the beginning.  He is our salvation and life if we choose Him.  And if we put our lives in His hands He will save us from the enemy that comes against us daily.  I for one need Him and call upon Him daily and have experienced His power of being saved from my enemies.  No need to worry about tomorrow as I already know who hold it. He is my Lord and Savior and I have accepted His call!

I love all the verses of this sweet song, but verse 4 says it the best of what has happen in my life!

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
he sets the prisoner free;
his blood can make the foulest clean;
his blood availed for me.

And that is why I sing His praises because he has redeemed me by his blood and by His grace, which is why I love Verse 1 of this song!

O for a thousand tongues to sing
my great Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace!

Now for my page where I used the scripture, Psalm 29:2!

I thought since it is fall and the weather is changing I would do a fall themed page and now that it is finished, I am glad I did.  It reveals the refreshing feel of fall to me and how refreshed I feel when I give glory and praise to the Lord.

Here you will find this beautiful song sung by the David Crowder Band!

And as always, please check out Patter's post and beautiful page here!

I used Stampin' Up's My Digital studio and the Autumn Traditions Kit along with the Designer Rosettes Embellishments to create this page.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Also using this in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge this week!
