All I can do . . . .

Praise God

For some reason, tonight (Sunday Sept 7, 2014) I am reliving my youth/college days christian music time. I had a cassette (that’s what we used back then) back in the day called Ultimate Rock. I spent a lot of time figuring that out and decided to find as many of those songs on Spotify and I made a new list. I have added a few other songs from Greg X Volz and, hopefully, others that I remember and maybe some new ones in time.

Here it is if you are interested.

My brother came home from college and he introduced me to some Contemporary Christian Music, a little more edgy. He handed me a Volz’s The River is Rising. There are a lot of songs on the CD I like. Some great riffs, great vocals and simply, great lyrics. Some of the lyrics were mystical, some were downright aggressively prophetic, and very clever for the former Petra lead singer.

One of the songs on that album is an extremely well written praise song, before we used praise songs by CCM artists. I would love to heart it sang in a worship service.

All I Can do is poignant.

I am surrounded – there’s no way out – I must fight
A nasty situation
On the horizon – reinforcements coming in sight
To face the confrontation
And tho I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
I know by His power He will give me that rest
Which passes understanding
All I have to do – for Him to pull me thru
Stand on the word and He’ll fight the battle

All I can do, all I can do is praise Him
Praise, praise, praise Him again
All I can do, all I can do is praise Him
Praise, praise, praise Him again
All I can… All I can do

All I can do More lyrics

Going into the battle, praise God. That’s what the Apostle Paul did in prison (the story covered in a song by Ray Boltz). That’s what the Children of Israel did at Jericho.
