The Giver Gets the Glory




When Im endangered and need a protector, or am weak and need someone strong,
When Im bankrupt and in need of a bailout, when Im foolish and I am wrong
I need someone wise and righteous, when Im lost,  I need rescue.
I lift my eyes unto the hills- my helper comes to see me through.

When I cannot do the work, in my impossibility
And I am utterly in need of help, my Father works for me.
The giver gets the Glory, our provider gets the praise
We wait, He works within us His wondrous will and ways.

God says, "To your old age . . . I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear;
I will carry and will save (Isaiah 46:4). You are safe within my care
Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you,
And you shall glorify me (Psalm 50:12, 15), for I will see you through."

When I cannot do the work, in my impossibility
And I am utterly in need of help- My Father works for me.
The Giver gets the Glory Our Provider gets the praise
We Wait, He Works within us His wondrous will and ways.

Bridge:
No eye has seen a God besides you, 
Who works for those who wait for him (Isaiah 64:4).
The giver of life abides in you (Acts 17:25) 
He works his will in the fates of men (Phil 2:12–13)

When I cannot do the work, In my impossibility (Philippians 4:13)
And I am utterly in need of help, my Father works for me.
The Giver gets the Glory, our Provider gets the praise
We wait, He works within us His wondrous will and ways.
