Gratitude

GRATITUDE

My life is full of blessings
My deepest gratitude
It fills my heart, I want to sing
Praising my love for You

Perfect gifts come from above
You bless me everyday
I feel the presence of Your love
You’re never far away

My soul is ever thanking you
I want to show You day by day
Loving others the way You do
I know that is the way

There is so much to thank You for
Your Mercy, Love and Grace
The Comforter You gave me Lord
A gift that I embrace

My heart is full of thanksgiving
You gave Your life for me
Loving and so willingly
My life you Guaranteed

To live with You eternally
I rejoice

God is Good!

This Friend You’ve Given Me

THIS FRIEND YOU’VE GIVEN ME

The many gifts and blessings Lord
That you have given me
Fill me with thanks and gratitude
And love that praises thee

But there’s one thing above the rest
I treasure specially
I hardly know how to express
It means so much to me

When sorrow strikes I call her
She hears my “Woe is me”
And let’s me talk forever
Then says, “Let’s pray, shall we?”

You knew all she would have to be
To get along with me
So then you gave her Patience,
Love and Humility

But what I cherish most of all
Is the ability
To share the love we have for You
With this friend
You’ve given me

We Perish Lord

WE PERISH LORD

I looked around the world today
Chaos, Confusion, Disarray
The pain and sorrow, hurt and care
Lord, “What is happening out there?”

What’s happened to the unity
That stood for home and family
Where did the love and honor go
A child to parents used to show?

Abortion, Drugs, Adultery
Are words this generation knows
Corruption’s all that I can see
Lord, “Are you really in control?”

The Faith and Hope and Charity
This nation had and used to share
Where has it gone, it used to be?
We perish Lord, Why don’t You care?

This world You died and suffered for
Does it not need you anymore?
I fear that it’s so blind to see
Are we repeating history?

Son of David, have mercy on me
Incline Your ear, please hear my plea
I know nothing’s too hard for you
For they don’t know Lord what they do

Pour forth Your spirit – awake the dead
Those stony hearts will turn instead
Your grace and love will mightily
Do miracles Lord, as you did for me.

Promises

PROMISES
 
God I am so sorry
I have offended thee
It’s always the same story
These sins that beset me

I cry out so sincerely
Confess and promise You
These sins I lay before thee
Again I’ll never do

Then comes a bright new morning
I praise and worship You
My sins have been forgiven
I’ll start my life anew

So here I am this eve-ning
What did I do today?
I thoroughly examine
What did I have to say?

Alas, the same old story
I have offended Thee
I come again so humbly
Knowing You will hear me

As I kneel down before you
I realize gratefully
Your promises to me
Are not like mine to Thee.

Where Have You Been?

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN

Early do I seek Him
With a cry deep from within
My prayer was just to know Him
Why do I search again?

My bibles, books, and tapes
I frantically search through
One glimpse, one sign this day, O Lord
That’s all I ask of you

You said I’d never thirst again
Why then my panting heart
One look was all you gave me then
Now how to live apart

With tears of desperation
I dropped down to my knees
My God have You forgotten
Your promises to me?

And then ever so gently
I heard deep from within
Your prayer was just to know me
Why do you search again?

The day you opened up the door
And asked me to come in
I have been waiting here for you
My child “Where have you been”?

It’s No Coincidence

IT’S NO COINCIDENCE

I know it’s no coincidence
I live just where I do
You’ve planned my life and know my ways
You know me through and through

When trials come along the way
As they so often do
I know it’s no coincidence
I feel so close to you

The joy that soars within me
At the mention of your name
I know it’s no coincidence
Through death my life You claimed

When nothing is the matter
But I still feel so cast down
I know it’s no coincidence
Scriptures with love abound

A peace that I don’t understand
Yet flows through all of me
I know it’s no coincidence
You promised it would be

And then sometimes I wonder
Lord, Why do you love me
He said , “It’s no coincidence
That you happen to be”

With love and joy I formed you
And knew all you would be
You see it’s no coincidence
That you belong to me.

What Really Matters

WHAT REALLY MATTERS

I’ve reached another crossroad
In my life today
Two paths I have before me
Confusion either way

Changes that make me tremble
Choices so hard to make
My circumstances tell me
My whole life is at stake

Just when I started feeling
That my life was orderly
You turned it upside down again
O Lord, Why should it be?

All that I see before me
Is a life so far away
From everything that matters
O Lord, I want to stay

And as I turn to go my way
I glimpse so fearfully
At that rough and jagged path
That was not meant for me

Amongst the thorns and briers
And many deep val–leys
I see someone so very dear
That says “Come Follow Me”

Now all I see before me
Is a life so far away
With everything that matters
Yes Lord, I’ll go your way.
