The Shadow Is Gone

I used to have this feeling

That I  was in Satan’s snare

He cast on eerie shadow

It followed me everywhere

 

But then I called on Jesus

He freed me from my sin

And Satan moved away from me

I now have peace within

It’s Not Up To Me

It’s not up to me

To save a soul

To take their sins

And make them whole

But it is up to me

To tell them of Christ

So That they can accept Him

And change their lives

 

It’s not up to me

To heal the sick

To take their pain

And help them live

But it is up to me

To help them see

The one who heals

And dries their tears

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

It’s not up to me

To convict of sin

To judge the lost

And purify them

But it is up to me

To witness each day

Of the love of Christ

And to pray and pray

 

It’s not up to me

To look down on them

Or to think I’m better

Because I have Him

But it is up to me

To love them with all

My heart must go out

To both big and small

 

My task is to tell them of Jesus

And the wonders He’s done for me

To open their eyes to the light of His love

So that they will truly believe

 

For I do not know what tomorrow brings

It just might be their last day

I need to tell them of Jesus

And pray, and pray, and pray

Down with the Giant

David was a teenager

When he faced the giant

Goliath had a victors laugh

But David brought him down

 

The giant in our lives is sin

We’ve no way to defeat it

But Jesus paid the price for us

The giant’s been defeated

 

Today take Jesus as your Lord

And He will be your Savior

The giants in your life will fall

Before His mighty name

Crossing the Great Divide

There’s a great divide between God and man

The gulf is large and deep

It’s been in place since Adam ‘s day

It’s way the angels keep

 

When Jesus died upon that cross

He paid the price for sin

And He became the crossing bridge

For all of us to win

 

The only way to God you see

Is Jesus Christ today

So come and take Him as your Lord

And He’ll show you the way

Perfect Time

Groping in the darkness
Middle of the night
Squinty eyes are opening
Trying to find some light
Moonbeam through the window

Melody comes slowly
Sound of flowing spring
Hymn now comes together
This my offering
What a perfect time to praise the Lord

Merciful Savior

When I begin to think about

What Jesus did for me

I always must remember

The day He set me free

 

My sins were overwhelming

I couldn’t find my way

I tried so many other things

That just led me astray

 

But Jesus said He’d rescue me

From the depths of sin

I needed to escape my past

And find some peace within

 

Oh, what a merciful Savior

Oh, what grace divine

Jesus is my answer

Jesus now is mine

 

So I sat down and prayed a prayer

And asked Him in my heart

There was no doubt He touched me

As I felt Him from the start

 

From that day on He stayed with me

I grew in His embrace

And now I trust Him every day

To cover me with grace

 

My heart shouts out His praises

As I lift my voice in song

He’s all I ever needed

With Him I can’t go wrong

 

Oh, what a merciful Savior

Oh, what grace divine

Jesus is my answer

Jesus now is mine

The Fog Lifted

I used to live life in a fog

My mind was always cloudy

And smoke swirled ’round my head all day

My life was kind of rowdy.

 

But then I met my Savior

Jesus is His name

The fog lifted

Life was changed

i’ll never be the same

 

Now I’m free from sin and shame

I have reason to live

I’m free at last

From troublled past

My praise to Him I give

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Smoke

What A Mighty Name

I have a feeling God is near

I hear Him whisper in my ear

His Spirit calls me, oh so clear

To lift my voice in praise

 

And then I hear the angels shout

They worship as they fly about

Their words of praise, they echo loud

They lift His holy name

 

Hallelujah, Jesus reigns

Hallelujah, praise His name

Hallelujah, Jesus reigns

He is Lord of all

 

The chorus rings throughout the sky

I sing with angels passing by

We sing unto the Lord most High

He’s worthy of our praise

 

Jesus, King and Lord of life

Jesus, Savior for all time

Jesus, now forever mine

How I love that name

 

Jesus, blessed redeemer reigns

Jesus, every day the same

Jesus, what a mighty name

Worthy of my praise

 

Hallelujah, Jesus reigns

Hallelujah, praise His name

Hallelujah, Jesus reigns

He is Lord of all
