Shout Out to the Lord - 5-7-5 suite

Rejoice in the Lord

by Sandra du Plessis


Rejoice in the Lord
He's nearby, honor His Name,
we don't need to fear.

Go to God in prayer
tell Him everything we need
praise with gratitude.

God will give us peace
beyond man's understanding;
He'll keep our hearts safe.

He is our refuge
loving God brings hope and grace;
Savior, Redeemer.


 



PHILIPPIANS 4:4-7 "Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful of nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
