To hear you say well done

07:32:00 Karen Li 0 Comments

I'm sure I'm not the only person who likes to be praised. In fact, praise is often used as a natural reward in family behavioural interventions, couples therapy and a range of talk therapies. The basic principle is that if you are rewarded for doing something, you are more likely to do it in the future. Makes sense.

When I was younger I would chase after useless certificates, pieces of paper. I wanted to get as many awards as possible, to get as many qualifications as possible. I would be thrilled to get certificates for random things. But after I got the certificate it would be meaningless, and I would have to chase after higher praises.

The new song by Moriah Peters gives me a fresh insight into something I have known all along. We shouldn't be chasing after the claps of the world, but instead, we should strive to run the race put forward by God in order to get his approval. And for the past few days, it's the song I've been singing when I wake up in the morning. It makes all the difference in the world ~ to live in such a way as to hear the praise of God.

C
I'm headed down this narrow road
F
Chosen by the few
G
And all that I know is
      F                C
You told me to follow You
C
I'm taking a risk and leaving it all
F
Not knowing what I'll go through
G
But I'm not alone
    F                C
As long as I follow You


Dm
So when my life's a leap of faith
F               G
I can hear You say


      C         Em
Well done, well done
           Dm
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
           F                   C     G
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
      C        Em
I'll run, I'll run
           Dm
I'm gonna run this race
    F                 C
To hear You say well done


C
If people walk with me, talk with me, looking for truth
F
They're gonna find out soon
    G
If they're following me then
         F             C
They're gonna follow You


Dm
So let my life speak loud and clear
F              G
Lord, I wanna hear




      C         Em
Well done, well done
           Dm
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
           F                   C     G
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
      C        Em
I'll run, I'll run
           Dm
I'm gonna run this race
    F                 C
To hear You say well done


C                                    Am
I'm so glad that I get to serve You, Lord
                                 F     G
You're the only One I am living for, woah
C                                      Am
I'm gonna run straight into Your open arms
                                  F      G     C
I'm gonna follow You with my all heart, woah, woah


      C         Em
Well done, well done
           Dm
I'm gonna chase You, Lord
           F                   C     G
I'm gonna show the world Your love, woah
      C        Em
I'll run, I'll run
           Dm
I'm gonna run this race
    F                 C
To hear You say well done
           Dm
I'm gonna run this race
   F                   C
To hear You say well done
