The Answer Is Yes

There’s a call to serve the Lord today
This I know is true
The question that awakens me
Is what can this man do

I open my eyes to look around
At a world that needs His love
I’m just one person in a small town
Can I really do enough

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

I began to see around me
Little needs I could fulfill
From providing a few groceries
To a gas tank that needs filled

An old man need company
On a long ride for his health
So I rode along beside him
And shared the gospel wealth

There are so many ways we can reach out
So many things we can change
If well just take the time to bow down
And fall on our knees in prayer

The most powerful weapon I can yield
Against the enemy
Is a prayer life for others daily
That’s designed to meet their needs

As I pray for the lost and lonely
God will open my eyes to their needs
Then I step out in faith to help them
Change the world why yes indeed

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

Always Blessed 

I woke up abruptly the room bathed in light
It seemed that an angel was blinding my sight
Come closer He whispered and called me by name
I come here to bless you don’t be afraid

The Lord sent me to you to grant you one wish
Anything can be yours i will grant your request
I was awed by His splendor his voice was surreal
I thought this a dream but knew it was real

Anything could be mine from riches to fame
More wisdom or power could be mine today
I thought for a moment how my life would change
If any of these things would be mine today

Then I realized what a great life I had
I needed not riches or power or fame
I have a great family who loves me so much
I have lots of friends i am blessed by God’s touch

I looked at the angel the words came quite clear
Please heal my good friend so he’ll live many years
He has aches and pains and his nerves are all shot
He sure needs a touch for he lives God so much

The angel just smiled it is done He replied
You have spoken your wish your friend will arise
Then he left just as fast as he had appeared
But before he did these last words I did hear

Because you have prayed for your friend on this day
There’s a blessing that will soon be coming your way
I smiled as he left knowing he was correct
When we pray for others we always are blessed

Creation Testifies

In all the world around me
I see His loving hand
I know He’s watching over me
He surveys this great land

I love to hear the birds
As they sing their praises high
I love to see the trees
As they lift their branches high

I love to feel the wind
His spirit whisking by
I love to see the stars
So majestic in the sky

All to bring His praises
To lift His name up high
All to bring Him glory
His creation testifies

When I behold this symphony
Of praise to Christ our Lord
I just have to lift my voice
To the one that I adore

Praise His name, His mighty name
The glorious name of Jesus
Praise His name, His matchless name
Jesus Christ the Lord

Sing His praises loud and clear
Cause your voice to shout and cheer
Sing it out so all will hear
That Jesus Christ is Lord

Praise His name, His mighty name
The glorious name of Jesus
Praise His name, His matchless name
Jesus Christ the Lord

Somewhere

I was wandr’ing through life going nowhere
My path even unknown to me
I wallowed in sin
As I struggled to win
My anguish was buried beneath

Then a voice came to me from somewhere
And called me to somewhere unknown
I determined to go
Down this new, unknown road
Perhaps this somewhere could calm my soul

As I followed that voice it led somewhere
To a place so amazing to me
A peace filled my soul
While true joy sweetly flowed
I knew this was somewhere so sweet

The someone who called me was Jesus
The somewhere was close to His side
Somehow He found me
And lent me His mercy
His helped my soul to survive

If you’re trav’lling through this life lonely
Heading somewhere that you do not know
His voice calls to you
To come somewhere new
You’ll find refuge for your troubled soul

Plans

I often come up with wonderful plans
Of when I should go and when I should stand
But most of the time those plans are in place
I find myself falling flat on my face

I’m not very good at thinking real clear
The words that I say are not what they hear
My plan makes me say thing I should not
They cause those around me to grow rather hot

I cry to the Lord please help me to speak
It’s your words I want and your plan I seek
Whenever I revert to ways of my own
I find that I’m closer to being disowned

Your gentle sweet voice echoes soft in my ear
I quiet way down so you I can hear
You tell me to stop and follow your ways
Things will be better in upcoming days

I hope that I will learn something from this
That is my prayer and that is my wish
To follow His plan every day of my life
I will not get lost and peace will be mine

If you find you are wand’ring through life on your own
And the snares are around you outside or at home
Listen to Jesus and follow His plan
He’ll firmly guide you with His gentle hand

He’s Mine

If not for the Lord I’d still be in sin
No pardon for me the devil would win
I’d flounder through life and wish for retrieve
Then in the end hell my soul would receive

If not for the Lord no joy would be mine
My laughter would be empty echoes through time
Sorrow below in my merriest rhymes
I’d wind up with smiles my face would tell lies

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

If not for the Lord all hope would be lost
I’d pay the price now an eternal cost
No future would hold anything prosperous
I’d flounder through life in a whirlwind of loss

If not for the Lord my peace would subside
I’d think I was calm but I’d tremble inside
When it seemed things were right only fear would reside
Only terror would fill up the thoughts of my mind

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

I don’t have to worry
I don’t have to fret
I don’t need to have any doubt
When I asked Him to save me
He did it that day
And my life was turned about

Yes He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

Our Emmanuel 

I cannot tell thee whence it came
This peace within my soul
When cancer reared it’s ugly head
He’s all I chose to know
When days were tough and weakness reigned
And I was feeling low
His calm assurance rescued me
From satan’s vengeful blow

I stand in His unfailing love
I look to see His face
For He has been so good to me
He showered me with grace
In all the days since illness struck
His merciful embrace
Has held me closely to His side
He’s worthy of my praise

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

When I have gained the victory
And stand whole once again
I know I’ll owe it all to Him
My Savior and my friend
I’ll lift my voice up louder still
To reace the God of heav’n
Hosanna, praise His mighty name
Jesus Christ the Lamb

Lift His name
His matchless name
Jesus Lamb of God
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
Our Emmanuel

How Wonderful Are You Lord

I don’t deserve your mercy
I don’t deserve your grace
I don’t deserve the love you’ve shown to me
Yet in my darkest hour
When hope seemed all but gone
You reached into my soul and lifted me

You lifted me from doubt
You lifted me from fear
You lifted me from hopelessness to faith
Now I stand before you
With arms held open wide
I lift to you my worship and my praise

How wonderful
How merciful
How mighty are you Lord
How wonderful
How merciful
How mighty are you Lord

You set aside your majesty
To come and rescue me
You gave up all your glory
When you died upon that tree
Now you reign forever
And yet you still love me
What an awesome God you are
What an awesome God you are

How wonderful
How merciful
How mighty are you Lord
How wonderful
How merciful
How mighty are you LOrd

Today and Tomorrow

The past is the past
It is gone
Over with
Finished
What has been done is done
And can’t be undone
Can’t be redone
What has been said has been
And can not be been back
We can not change
The past
We can not go back
And do it over
We can not escape it

But we can overcome it
Wipe out any negative effects
Rise above any wrongdoings
Become better because of it
We can
Make it disappear
And no longer be a conduit
For doubt
Or fear
Or worry
Or misgivings
We can
Let it go
To embrace the only thing we have
Today
And tomorrow

God says
He will wipe away our sins
And wash them white as snow
He will remove our sin
As far as the East is from m the West
They no longer have a hold on me
They no longer control me
I look to the only thing I have
Today
And tomorrow

Rise up
Start over
Let your life shine
Let your voice be heard
Be free from your past
Live the life you were meant to live
Today
And tomorrow
