Daily Doing

"Sing unto the LORD, bless His name; show forth His salvation from day to day" (Psalm 96:2).  "He that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30).  "Turn ye unto Me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you" (Zechariah 1:3).  "Jesus saith... Lovest thou Me?... Feed My lambs... Feed My sheep... Follow Me.  Then Peter... saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?  Jesus saith unto him... What is that to thee?  Follow thou Me" (John 21:15-22). 

There is an order to the things
That God would have us daily doing,
Beginning with a heart that sings
With love for God He is renewing. 

We're called to show His great salvation
With evidence that testifies,
Yet love for Christ is our foundation   
For winning souls and being wise. 

The love of Christ constrains us first: 
We turn to Him; He turns to us. 
He satisfies our longing thirst
With mercies that are marvelous. 

O Lord, we thank You for the way
You lead us by Your faithful love
In all we're doing day by day
Until we're face to face above.
