       ÒSTOP & GIVE PRAISEÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

SOME ARE UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT THEY DONÕT NEED GOD FOR THEIR DAILY FUNCTION

 

THE BIGGEST BOSS WHOSE TIME CLOCK THAT WE ARE PUNCHING

 

WHILE MOST CLOCK OUT AT 8 HOURS I WORK OVER 9

 

BECAUSE ON HIS SHIFT I DONÕT MIND WORKING OVERTIME

 

AND IÕM CONTENT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT FOR WHAT IT PAYS

 

EVERYTIME I GIVE PRAISE HE GIVES ME ANOTHER RAISE

 

THATÕS THE KEY TO GLORIFY HIM FOR HE DESERVES IT

 

AND I KNOW HEÕS WORTH IT FOR ITÕS ONLY HE WHOÕS PERFECT

 

BUT FIRST GET FAMILIAR WITH THE FACT THAT HEÕS AMAZING

 

FOR ALL HEÕS DONE IT SHOULD BE EASY FOR YOU TO PRAISE HIM

 

JUST THANK HIM WHEN YOU AWAKE AND OPEN YOUR EYES

 

ITÕS NO SURPRISE THAT MANÕS DEMISE IS THEY DONÕT RECOGNIZE

 

WHOÕS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR EARTHLY EXISTENCE

 

THE SAME GOD WHO CAN TAKE AWAY LIFE JUST IN AN INSTANCE

 

OR ANY MOMENT, HIS COMPASSION HEÕS ALWAYS SHOWN IT

 

AND IF YOUR LIFE IS EMPTY HEÕS THE MISSING COMPONENT

 

AND I CONDONE IT FOR I THINK HE DISTINCTLY

 

PUTS OBSTACLES IN OUR LIFE WHENEVER WE THINK WE

 

DONÕT NEED TO THANK HIM BY TAKING HIM FOR GRANTITE

 

I CANÕT UNDERSTAND IT BECAUSE PRAISING HIM IS DEMANDED

 

AND THATÕS A FACT WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGING HIM IÕM STRESSING

 

DONÕT BE EXPECTING ANY BLESSING UNTIL YOU LEARN THIS LESSON

 

THERE IS NO QUESTION GOD LOVES RECEIVING CREDIT

 

JUST LET IT BE A PART OF YOUR DAILY JOB THATÕS EXPECTED

 

AND EACH MORNING YOU WAKE JUST TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK

 

GOD FOR GIVING YOU LIFE AND YOUR MIND STATE

 

FOR THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE NOT AS FORTUNATE

 

WITH BAD HEALTH AND THINGS THAT YOU HAVE THEY CANÕT AFFORD TO GET

 

AND THEY WOULD TAKE YOUR POSITION ANY DAY

 

WHILE THEY PRAY FOR MIRACLES YOU DONÕT TAKE THE TIME TO SAY

 

THANKS BUT YET IN STILL WISH FOR BETTER DAYS

 

BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO STOP AND GIVE THE LORD PRAISE

 

 

 

CHORUS (SAMPLE VOCAL, ÒPEOPLE WALK AROUND WITH THEIR MINDS IN A DAZE,        

 

                    NEVER TAKE THE TIME TO STOP AND GIVE PRAISEÓ)

 

REPEAT 3 XÕS

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

I DONÕT UNDERSTAND WHY ITÕS SO HARD TO HONOR GOD

 

IÕVE SEEN MORE RESPECT FOR A BOSS AT A JOB

 

THEY CONTINUE THEIR DAILY LIVES NOT EVEN SHOWING

 

AS IF NOT KNOWING FROM WHOM ALL THEIR BLESSINGS ARE FLOWING

 

SHOW HIM THAT YOU REALLY NEED HIM BELIEVE IN HIS BLESSINGS, BUT

 

CONTINUE TO PRAISE HIM EVEN BEFORE YOU RECEIVE THEM

 

ITÕS NOT JUST WHAT HE DID ITÕS ABOUT WHO HE IS

 

ANY ONE CAN LOVE YOU BUT THEREÕS NO LOVE LIKE HIS

 

YOUÕVE GOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT FOR THE MAN THAT

 

WHO LAID DOWN HIS FOR YOU ACTUALLY PLANNED THAT

 

HIS LOVEÕS UNCONDITIONAL  NOT TO MENTION THOUGH

 

BEFORE YOUR FIRST SIN HE ALREADY MADE THIS DECISION SO

 

HOW CAN YOU REPAY SOMEONE WHO EXISTED FIRST

 

BEFORE THE PLANET EARTH, WHO HELPED CREATE THE WHOLE UNIVERSE

 

THEREÕS NO MATERIAL ITEM THAT YOU CAN GIVE HIM OR SEND HIM

 

BUT YOUR LACK OF PRAISE FOR HIM IS ENOUGH TO OFFEND HIM

 

CAUSE ALL HE WANTS FROM YOU IS THAT HE WANTS YOU TO

 

GIVE HIM PRAISE WITHOUT ACTING LIKE ITÕS TOO MUCH FOR YOU

 

CAUSE ON THE REAL HEÕS WORTH MORE THAN THAT

 

FOR THE FACT IÕM SAVED AND I ADORE THE FACT

 

THAT HE GAVE UP HIS LIFE FOR ME, WAS SACRAFICED FOR ME

 

PAID SINÕS PRICE FOR ME, ENDURED STRIFE FOR ME

 

WEÕVE ALL HEARD IT, ANSWERS I TRIED TO SEARCH IT

 

WHY WOULD HE DIE FOR SOMEONE WHO DID NOT DESERVE IT

 

PERFECT IS HIS WILL AND THE BIBLE DESCRIBED IT

 

AS DYING WILLINGLY, NOT TRYING TO FIGHT IT

 

SO NOW, THE QUESTION IS WHAT REALLY REPAYS

 

CHRIST FOR WHAT HE DID, IÕLL TELL YOU THE ANSWERÕS PRAISE

 

SO JUST DENY YOUR DOUBT AND TAKE TIME OUT

 

TO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM WITH PRAISE AND YOU WILL FIND OUT

 

YOUÕLL BE AMAZED HOW YOU BLESSINGS WILL RAISE

 

BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO STOP AND GIVE THE LORD PRAISE

 

 

 

CHORUS (SAMPLE VOCAL, ÒPEOPLE WALK AROUND WITH THEIR MINDS IN A DAZE,        

                    NEVER TAKE THE TIME TO STOP AND GIVE PRAISEÓ)
