Here I am to praise you
Love is patient, love is kind..... Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always hopes, always perseveres. The Bible.
I will praise you as long as I live
Whoever believes need never be shaken. ... This is what the Almighty LORD says: I am going to lay a rock in Zion, a rock that has been tested, a precious. Isaiah 28:16
