How Can My Heart Not Sing By Brenda Drake

I will forever sing God’s praises.  God has been so good to me. How can my heart not sing?

How Can My Heart Not Sing

How can my heart not sing; how can I be still?
I have so much to thank Him for; His love has my life filled.
He emptied my heart of worry, and chased fear away.
He gave me new life and taught me how to pray.
Gone are the dark shadows and threatening clouds of gloom.
The future shines like diamonds, with promise He comes back soon.
My eyes search for lost souls for I remember well,
My fate before Jesus; when headed for hell.
The love and compassion I feel for others is truly real.
I believe it is God’s love within that I now feel.
Only a loving, faithful God molds and shapes within,
Only He takes a broken, useless life and makes it new again.
Only a merciful God willing to pay sin’s price,
Would take the penalty of our sins and pay for them with His life.
Only a wonderful God with great love would move deep inside,
To spend preparing patiently for Himself His bride.
How could I not sing and His works testify I ask? 
It would be impossible task for me; in fact,
I cannot imagine the unspeakable loss it would have been,
To have traveled to the cross untouched, lost and still full of sin.
I will always praise Him and will speak Jesus’ name clear.
I will my love for Him proclaim far and near.

Isaiah 38:18-19
For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day:
the father to the children shall make known thy truth.
