Kurt Carr writes some of the BEST gospel songs. The man can write some POWERFUL song lyrics.
This morning I listened to his song called "Ten Thousand, One Million". I suggest you go find it right now and listen to it!
The lyrics are amazing. Look at these:
"Ten thousand sacred anthems
One million sincere praises
Can not proclaim how worthy Jesus is to me"
(Reminds me of the old song "You Don't Know Like I Know")
The thought is simple. No one can praise God like you can!
"No one can ever sing your praise for me
They don't know what you've done for me"
God created you unique. There's only one you. We say it a lot, but do we really understand?
He doesn't want mimicked praise or worship. He was the unique praise that can only come from the unique you.
These are my favorite lyrics in the song:
"Ten thousand saints crossed over, One million prostrate angels
They can't cry holy, holy, holy, Lord for me"
Jesus has endless amounts of praise from angels ... saints in Heaven ... creation itself.
But one million angels' praise cannot compare to one human soul choosing to worship Him.
God wants YOUR praise. God wants YOUR worship. God wants YOU.
You're special to Him. And nothing and no one can praise God for you!
Until next time,
Revelation 16:4 (MSG)
Then I heard the sound of massed choirs, the sound of a mighty cataract, the sound of strong thunder: Hallelujah! The Master reigns, our God, the Sovereign-Strong!
