Lyrics

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

Omnipotent, Almighty King, Died on a Cross, but Rose Again
He Rose Again, He Rose Again, Thank God Almighty He rose again

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

This Old Cross full of shame it's calling out calling out my name

I'll pick up this cross, I'll pick up this cross, Thank God Almighty, I'll pick up this cross

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise the Lord

He's coming back, He's coming back again
And all His angels will be with Him
The dead in Christ will rise again, Thank God Almighty, They'll rise again

Yes they will rise again
Yes they will rise again

This Old Cross full of shame it's calling out, calling out my name

I'll pick up this cross, I'll pick up this cross, Thank God Almighty, I'll pick up this cross

And I will follow Him
Yes, I will follow Him.

Lovely song. It was quite the pleasure to listen to. I especially loved the feeling that I could hear behind the lovely instrumentals and lyrics. You have a wonderful way of communicating the feelings an the message behind the lyrics and instrumentals. Keep on pouring that beautiful soul and voice into your music!

A beautiful song with an eclectic musical flow with a message of hope reflects upon the hope and need of this world in these crazy times. The musical arrangement with the piano reminds me a bit of Jackson Browne from the album, for Every Man. This is a tune that I am proud to add to my playlist and will enjoy over and over.

The strong point in this song is the highly-singable praise chorus. It's simple, to the point and would work very well in a worship service. Young and old could easily sing the Praise Him chorus. The instrumentation is nice, the strings make it sound fuller and more majestic. The key change was nice and well-placed. Always good to hear another God-honoring, Jesus-exalting song. Way to go, bro!

Overall I can hear a lot of potential in what this song could be

Praise Him is an excellent raw and original religious pop song. 5stars for it's originality and warm sweet vocals. Very cool great recording....

The vocalist has a nice voice, kind of sounds like Tom Petty. I am not much into this genre of music, but this sounds pretty cool. The lyrics are easy to understand and the mix is up front so you can understand every word.....good job!! I would like to hear other song styles from this Artist.........

A good song, structurally simple but it's easy to get into.
It's very catchy. The piano sounds good.

Good melody and good lyrics! The instrumentation works well and is harmonious! Well done!

I can instantly sing back your chorus, which is not only important, but the highest compliment I can give a songwriter.

This is a good worship song, and I can see it being used as part of a ministry to great affect. The vocal sounds heartfelt and sincere, and the singer has good pitch and delivery. A few tweaks (listed below) and I think the market appeal could be improved greatly.
