Lyrics

Just Because You're God

Written By: Rusty Douthitt/Stephen Nix

Chorus: Just because You're God, I've come to worship You.

Just because You're God, I've come to praise Your holy name.

Not for anything You've done, or for the victories You've won.

Lord, I worship You, just because You're God. (2X)

Verse: You're God of the mountains and God of the seas,

God of the nations, and God just for me.

You're God when I'm weary, and God when I'm strong,

God in the morning, and God all day long, and I wor - ship just be - cause . . . (2X)

Bridge: You are God, and You are great, (Just because You're God)

So we lift our voice and celebrate.

You take us to a higher place (Just because You're God)

Where we gaze upon Your holy face.

And I worship You, Lord, I worship You . . .

Lord, I worship You just because You're God.

Jesus Is Worthy

Written By: Rusty Douthitt

Chorus: Praise Him! Praise Him!

Jesus is worthy, so give Him all the praise. (Repeat)

Verse: Clap your hands, shout for joy, lift your voice.

Come be - fore Him, make a joyful noise!
Testify, magnify, lift Him high.

Jesus is worthy, so give Him all the praise.

Ending: Praise Him! (4X) Worthy, worthy (Yes, He's worthy)

Praise Him! Praise Him! Give to the Lord all the honor and praise.

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus is worthy, so give Him all the praise.

Show Me Your Way

Written By: Rusty Douthitt

Mold my heart in Your will I'm praying,
Let me hear what Your Spirit's saying, Lord,
Show me Your way.
Help me keep my eyes on You,
I will do what You want me to, Lord, show me Your way.
Oh, Lord, show me Your way.
Verse: For the way of the Lord is perfect,
And the way of the Lord is pure.
Oh, the way of the Lord is holy, and His righteousness endures.
