His Name

In my brokenness where pain dwelled in

My heart was heavy incomplete filled with shame

Sadness overwhelmed my soul and was with pain

Until I heard His name

His name healed my heart

A true love that set me apart

His name brought joy and happiness to me

When I was blind and could not see

His name broke my chains

And love forever now will remain

No more pain or sorrow

My life is complete and I can see a better tomorrow

His name healed my soul

And because of His name now I am whole

I want to know you more each day

Give you my thoughts and my ways

I want to be in your presence

Where I can feel your majestic essence

I want to be able to speak to you

And know you are there

I want to walk in your truth

And at each moment run to you

Show me your way Lord that I may live right

Guide me each day and night

Let your light shine that I may be of use

Show me your way and each day you it will be I choose

Show me your way to love like you

Love my neighbors and my enemies

And their sadness undo

Let me be an example of how to follow you Jesus

And to be able to shine in the darkness like you do for us

Show me your way Lord

And let me abide in your word

Guide me to your truth

And be able to speak freely of you

Show me your way Lord

To protect me and others with your word

Abide in me forever

Through the end of my days

Show me your way

That they see you in me always

You Rescued Me

Broken and bruised

Abused and confused

I was left in the dark with pain

Sorrow and shame

With myself the only one to blame

Unable to remove the scars

That pierced right through my heart

Feeling stranded and afraid

Not knowing I would be saved

I thought I would always be on my own

Wandering through the dark valley all alone

Until you came and rescued me

Your hand touched mine and I was able to see

Your love you showed

Your majesty and power became known

You rescued me from the darkness

And guided me towards the light

You healed my heart from sadness

And in me you came to abide

You did not care where I was from

You took me into your arms away from harm

You rescued my soul and once again I was made whole

You rescued my life

As you paid the price

When you died on the cross that day

So I would not be in harm’s way.

Forgiveness, Grace, Love

Love Came Down

Love came down that one day

Up to the hill of Calvary where his life He gave

He knew his destiny and why he could not stay

Given as ransom for mankind to be saved

He screamed in agony

Forgive them for the do not know

And gave His last breath

Earth trembled in fear

For some knew that God was really hear

Some bowed and asked for forgiveness

Mary far away screamed in sadness

Love came down that one day

Jesus knew he could not stay

Up to Heaven to take his throne

With his father his kingdom Home

Love came down that one day

When Jesus Christ gave himself away.

Saw my pain

Each and every night 

I would call your name 

 

Redeemed my savior set me free

Chains broken my name was spoken 

By his power I was blind but can now see

Redeemed my savior came to save

Wretched and wounded a new life to me he gave

Redeemed from my chains

Redeemed from my fear and pain

He was always there waiting for me

Redeemed by his power and love set free

Surrendering to God

photo-1427435150519-42d9bcd0aa81-1024x683

Surrender to God and give him your life
He will then come to take away your strife
He will fill your emptiness
Take away your pain and your sadness
He will bring joy to your heart
And a new life will come to start

When you surrender to God no darkness will be found
For his light with you will always be around
He will protect you from harm
And will pull you to his arms

God is your light there is no darkness in him
He has overcome your every sin
God is your light you are now his
Surrender to his ways
And a hope for eternity
Will be with you for the rest of your days

~Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.~Psalm 37:7~

Bring Me Hope

 

Pick up the pieces of my broken life
Please put me back together again
Take away all the strife
My sorrow and my pain
Wipe my tears away
Erase my fears I face each day
Bring hope to my heart
Lord and from my life do not depart
Bring me the hope you once said
Erase the bad memories from my head
Give me the peace I need from you
Lord guide and direct me towards your truth
Bring me hope to my future
Deliver me from the past
Lord free my soul at last
And let my heart rest in you
Lord bring me hope
And in your arms let me cope

Lord bring me hope and peace
Help my troubles to cease
Give me the assurance that I need
Guide me towards you as your love and hope I heed
Bring me the hope you promised me
Show me the future you have in store
Give me eyes to see
Things I have never seen before
Bring me the hope to this heart of mine
Let your love and mercy forever dwell inside!

~Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.~Romans 12:12

This Hope

 

Beyond the troubles in this life
All your worries and strife
Beyond your fears and anxieties
The hurt that is inside
Beyond your sins and iniquities
There is one thing we cannot hide

The hope that is waiting to unveil
Promises of love and grace that are real
The mystery of God’s love that is yearning to be revealed
God’s grace that came to heal
How His love for you forever was sealed

On the cross where Jesus his life He gave
Where our life he did save
Your sins and mine were left there for our sake
His love for us no one can replace
That hope we have no one can take
This hope we have of a love so true
Was found when he gave his life for me and you!

~God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a door of hope.~ Hosea 2:15

Mercy Love And Grace

God’s mercy is renewed every morning
With his grace and love our life he is adorning
Molding us into his image as planned
Guiding us each day by his gracious hand
Restoring our hearts once broken and bruised
Purifying our souls to what once had been abused

Showing to us each and every day
His love, the truth and the way
Teaching us about his forgiveness
Filling our soul with his holiness

God’s mercy is redeeming
His grace and love conceiving
Helping us grow like Him each day
Preparing us in his direction so we do not stray
Keeping us together with him walking in the light
Protecting us from evil at night

God’s mercy and love
Flowing down from above
As his blessings are poured out to us
By his son Jesus
He showed his mercy and grace
By his son Jesus we were saved
There is no other true love like this we can ever replace
By his mercy love and grace
One day we will meet him face to face!

~From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.~ John 1:165
