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.
