Songs I Can't Escape. . . And Don't Want To (Writer's Workshop)

I love starting my day with praise to my God and lately, the following two songs seem to pop into my head every morning at the bus stop, sometimes even before I get there. I sing as I wait for the bus. Don’t worry, it’s okay, no one else is around to hear, just my God and me.

(I forget the title of this one, anyone know it? Gerard thinks it's "How Majestic Is Your Name")

Oh Lord, oh Lord,
How majestic is your name in all the Earth.
Oh Lord, oh Lord,
How majestic is your name in all the Earth.
Oh, Lord! I praise your name!
Oh, Lord! I magnify your name.
King of Kings, Lord of Lords,
Oh, Lord God almighty!

Ah, Lord God
(based on Jeremiah 32:17-19)

Ah, Lord God,
Thou hast made the heavens and the earth by thy great power.
Ah, Lord God,
Thou hast made the heavens and the Earth by thine outstretched arm.
Nothing is too difficult for thee, Nothing is too difficult for thee
Great and mighty God,
Great in counsel, mighty in deed.
Nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing,
Nothing is too difficult for thee!

This is part of Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. Also participated with my other blog: My Earliest Memory--There's A Mouse In The House!--the freaking out prompt.

Those are lovely lyrics to both songs! It's much better than the song I have stuck in my head...Lady Gaga's new song "Bad Romance".

A nice song to have stuck in you head. Why is it the songs I really like never stay stuck in my head long, but some I hate if I just hear a few minutes of them they are there all day! LOL

Farmer's Wife: It does sort of put put in a good mood to start, course when the bus didn't show up Friday, my good mood left. Had to wait half an hour in the cold for the next bus!

Helene: I never heard "Bad Romance" but sure doesn't sound very uplifting!

SingedWingangel: I like that song too!

Jennifer: I knw what you mean, sometimes "It's a Small Small World" gets stuck in my head. It's a catchy little tune; I think that's why.

Yes, that's "How Majestic is Your Name." I think Sandi Patti made it popular, back in the 80s (I used to work at a Christian radio station).

I really love Hillsong, from Australia. Have you heard of them?

What a beautiful song. I also start the day with thanks. This year I purchased a daily morning reflection book for women and it has the most beautiful prayers in it. Just a great way to set the tone for the day.
P.S. - Never knew about the puppy bowl. If I can get the TV away from Mountain Man, I'll go check it out.
