Sweet Smelling Savor

A movie was made a while ago
Scent of a Woman the story told
Al Pacino won the Oscar gold
A performance I truly admired

I’ll trade any day the scents from this world
For the sweet smelling savor of prayers to our Lord
Rising to meet Him in heaven adored
As an offering He will accept

So enjoy all you can this old world and it’s smells
Because one day He’ll come we know this quite well
The day and the hour no human can tell
Be ready for His soon return

Worshiping Your Name

Hail to the one who gave His life
Hail to the one who bled and died
Hail to the one who reigns on high
Jesus Christ our Lord

Glory to Him, the sovereign King
Glory to Him for everything
Glory to Him, our praises ring
Jesus Christ our Lord

Lord of heaven, Lord of earth
Who can match your awesome worth
Let us lift our voices high
Worshiping your name

Worthy, oh worthy is your name
Worthy, oh worthy, risen Lamb
Worthy, oh worthy of our praise
Jesus Christ our Lord

Lord of Heaven, Lord of earth
Guide us with your holy word

Worshiping your name

Happy 65

Today’s my birthday
I’m alive
I finally got to
65

If you had said
A year ago
That the next year
Would end up so

I would have told you
There’s no way
That I’d go through
What came my way

But here I sit
My feet unsure
My shoulder stuck
Cancer not cured

All these things
Will come about
I trust my God
I have no doubt

And in the end
The Lord will win
I’ll be all healed
Without, within

As for now
I’ll sing His praise
I’ll worship Him
I’ll lift His name

For He is worthy
Everyday
Of all my worship
All my praise

The Only Way

It seems there’s substitutes
For everything these days
From cracker jacks to table salt
There’s always one more way

But that’s not true with heaven
Jesus is the only way
No replacement can be found
For the price that He did pay

If you’re looking for he answers
And your stuck in middle ground
Juts give your life to Jesus
He’ll turn your life around

In response the the daily prompt Replacement

Ah, How I Loved The Beatles!

A remember and old song, a favorite of mine
It spoke of warm fuzzies and very  good times
The light melody was a hypnotic rhyme
Life in a yellow submarine

I grew up and realized that dreams are okay
As long as don’t let them rule all  my days
Reality has to be part of my  way
As I travel through this good life

The one thing that most be decided in life
Is whom you will serve when the end is in sight
It’s your choice you see, and you must make it right
Choose Jesus, He’ll answer your dreams

When I am lost and all alone
I look to you, and you alone
Hold me close

To your side, in your arms
You’ll keep me safe in the storm

You are my refuge

You are my stronghold
When battles rage

When I grow weary in the fight
You give me strength to carry on
Hold me close
Precious Lord
To your side, in your arms

You are my refuge
You are my fortress

Reward

The sun will  rise and set
The moon and stars will shine
The wind will come and go
Rain will fall when it is  time

These things are automatic
They’ll happen every day
There’s nothing we can do
To make them go away

But heaven is not automatic
Jesus must be your Lord
Ask Him to save you today
And heaven  will be your reward

I Am Your Father

When life takes a turn
And hard times arise
It’s easy to doubt God is near
If you will be silent
And wait just a bit
There’s a word that God wants you to hear

I am your Father, faithful and true
I’ll always be here when you call
Do not be fearful I am with you
I’ll pick you up when you fall

I am your Father, holy and just
My grace is sufficient for you
When you feel lost and you can’t find your way
I’ll always guide you through

I am your Father, loving and kind
I listen each time that you pray
I’ll send an answer when my time is right
There will never be a delay

I lift up my voice
To the Father above
And thank Him for all He has done
The calm reassurance
He puts in my heart
Tells me that the victory’s won

Heavenly Father, I give you praise
I lift up my voice to your name
I worship you from the depths of my heart
You’ve lifted me up by your grace

My Heart Cries Out

I’m not sure what this day will bring
Or how it will turn out
I only know what I feel now
And what I think about
It’s early in the morning
The sun has just come out
And though I am still waking up
I feel a coming shout

A shout of praise is welling
Deep down inside my soul
I cannot stop the movement
I love to praise my Lord
This feeling overtakes me
My voice begins to toll
Like a loud and clanging bell
I ring out for my Lord

Hallelujah, Praise His name
Jesus  Christ my King
Hallelujah, He is Lord
He’s my everything
Glory to His holy name
I will shout and sing
Hallelujah, worship Him
Jesus Christ my King

This day would never be complete
If I did not praise His name
I start out in the morning
And praise Him all the day
Then when the sun is setting
My heart will sing His praise
This day will be fulfilling
Because His name was raised

Hallelujah, Praise His name
Jesus  Christ my King
Hallelujah, He is Lord
He’s my everything
Glory to His holy name
I will shout and sing
Hallelujah, worship Him
Jesus Christ my King
