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 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, 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

Yes, I will follow Him.

Very catchy! I like the music and the hook. Also it is biblically accurate. I like the claps during the chorus, you could even bring them up in volume a little bit more to solidify the beat. Great job!

The voice reminded me of Tom petty and Leonard Cohen at times, which is a good thing. Enjoyed the positive message of the song. The music fits well with the sentiment of the song.

This song is more of a worship song than the rock/religious genre that Broadjam categorized it as. I will just rate the song based on what I heard. It is well-recorded with great musicianship and a very good worship theme. Very good at that. The vocals are draft which is fine and the message and intent comes across very well.
