For Your Name Is Great

Lord we worship you and give you all the glory

Lord you have been to me

For your name is great and worthy to be praised

God Favored Me

Love is patient, caring; love is kind.
Love is felt most when it's genuine.
But I've had my share of love abused,
Manipulated and its strength misused,
And I can't help but give you glory
When I think about my story,
And I know you favored me
Because my enemies did try but couldn't triumph over me.
Yes they did try but couldn't triumph over me.

[repeat]

They whispered, conspired, they told their lies, God favors me
My character, my integrity, my faith in God, He favors me
Will not fall, will not bend, won't compromise, God favors me
I speak life and prosperity and I speak health, God favors me

[repeat]

Yes, Yes, Yes!
God favors me!
