We praise You Father
That You have called us to serve the
Only living God,
The Almighty,
The Maker of the heavens and the earth,
The sea, and all that is in them.
Who made Himself known
By His accomplishments,
By His deeds,
By His Word,
By His revelations, and
Through His only begotten Son, our Lord.
We praise You, Father, for
Jesus Christ,
Our Savior,
Our Redeemer and
Our Shepherd.
Who was in the midst of us,
Who walked this very earth and
Who made His teachings known.
But above all for
His obedience to
Go to the cross to pay the debts
For us sinners.
We praise You, Father, for
Having chosen us and
That we are called and
Elected by the Most High.
That we are Your children and
Therefore heirs with Christ and
Heirs according to the promise.
That we are privileged to
Call upon Your Name
With praise and thanksgiving
Anytime, anywhere
And call You “Abba, Father.” 
We praise You, Father, for
Your faithfulness and
That Your compassions fail not and
Are new every morning.
That You listen to
Our prayers and requests
In times of health,
In times of sickness,
In times of joy,
In times of sorrow,
In times of delight and
In times of sadness.
We praise You, Father, for
Our God,
Our strength,
Our hope,
Our trust,
Our refuge and
Our salvation,
Who has no beginning,
Who will have no end and
Who is from everlasting to everlasting.
