Worship with me for a little right now.
I Love You Lord (written by Laurie Klein)
I love You Lord
and I lift my voice
To worship You
O my soul, rejoice!
Take joy, my King
in what you hear
May it be a sweet,
sweet sound in Your ear.
Thank You for the beauty of this day, for the work ahead and for how You have equipped me to serve. I pray my work honors You, and honors my family, and I am grateful for wherever You need me. Help me do what You need me to do. Help me to speak and write words that are sweet to You. I love You. In the strong Name of Your Son Jesus I pray.
I have loved this little praise song from the moment I first heard it sung. In working in the Worship support world with Worship leaders and singers, it’s not necessarily on play lists but I think it often finds its way in spontaneosly. There is something so beautiful about voices joined together in Love for Our Lord. I find myself humming, singing, or whistling this tune. It comforts me. It comforts me just as saying “I love you” to my husband or daughter comforts me. Some things just need to be said, and said often.
