So Should I

I have seen His brilliant sunrise
I have seen the heavens glow
I have seen the shooting star fly through the sky
I have seen the tow’ring storm clouds
I have seen the lightning flash
I have seen the brilliant stars shine in the night

All creation shows His glory
All creation shows His beauty
All creation sings His praises
So should I
So should I

I have heard the songbirds singing
I have heard the leaves in gales
I have heard the north wind blowing in the night
I have heard the sleet and hail
I have heard the babbling brook
I have heard the thunder roar it’s sounds of fright

All creation shows His glory
All creation shows His beauty
All creation sings His praises
So should I
So should I

I will show the world His glory
By the life I live each day
I will tell them of His mercy
By my words and by my ways
I will lift the name of Jesus
As creation does each day
He is worthy or my worship
He is worthy of my praise

All creation shows His glory
All creation shows His beauty
All creation sings His praises
So should I
So should I

Catch That Flight

Running through the airport
MIddle of the night
Jump on the conveyor
Have to catch a flight

My time is a wasting
The gate has opened wide
Arriving there in time
I sit and breathe a sigh

Another flight is coming
To take us all away
Jesus will return
Are you ready for that day

The conveyor of all truth
He said to trust in Him
Ask Him for forgiveness
Make Him Lord within

Don’t be in the position
That you haven”t bowed and prayed
To make Him Lord and Savior
Before the final day

Our Deepest Need

If I had three million wishes
The very first would be
That everyone would be aware
Of their deepest need

For years I filled this need myself
With things not good for me
It led me to a troubled life
But never filled that need

Deep inside each one of us
There is a cavity
We try to fill it up ourselves
With things that we can see

I came to realize the fact
That God must fill this need
To worship Christ and Him alone
While bowing to our knees

If you have tried to no avail
To fill that void inside
Ask Jesus to forgive you now
And gain eternal life

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Cavity

Jesus Lamb of God
Meek and mild
Calls to His child
Jesus King of Kings
Worthy of praise

Worship His name
Lifting our praise

Come
Let us rejoice
Lifting our voice
Come

Stay
With Him forever
King of all heaven
Stay

Jesus Lamb of God
Meek and mild
Calls to His child
Jesus King of Kings
Worthy of praise
Now and always

Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Jesus Lamb of God
Meek and mild
Calls to His child
Jesus King of Kings
Worthy of praise
Now and always

Depend on You

When I am in sorrow
And I am discouraged
I know you will see me through.

When I’m disappointed
And I am downhearted
I know I can trust in you

When my heart is broken
And trials are heavy
I know I just need to pray

When I think I’m lost
And storms swirl around
I know that you’ll make a way.

You are the answer
To all of my needs
You are my strength
When I’m on my knees
You’re the supplier
Through every storm
I can always depend on you

Rescue

Every week it seemed we would watch it
They brought tears to our laughing eyes
Archie and Edith went at it
“Stifle yourself” was his cry

We all have some traits in our lives
That we’d like to get rid of each day
But the only real way we can do that
Is to stifle it in every way

For me it was sin that detered me
Then I heard Jesus paid the price
He died on the cross for my pardon
Now I offer to you this advice

If you’re wand’ring through life without hope
And it seems you can’t stifle your fear
Just call out to Jesus for rescue
If your honest you will catch His ear

Ask Him for His forgiveness
For the sin that has plagued our past
Ask Him to be the Lord of your life
Then enter His rest at last

Ungoverned

I once discovered
That I’d been ungoverned
My life had been such a disgrace
Now I have an inkling
You know what I’m thinking
When I tell you that I’ve found my way

My best friend had gumtion
He made introduction
For me to find Jesus my Lord
Now I’m singing praise
To that glorious name
My life is now safe evermore

Down the Trail

I started down the trail
On a bright sunny day
Blue sky dotted with clouds
White and puffy
Like cotton balls floating by
It was autumn
Trees lined the path
Yellow and orange leaves
Fluttered down from above
Floating on a gentle breeze
The path sloped downhill
A gentle incline
Leading to a brook below
Lush moss lined the older trees
Undergrowth filled the ground
With green leaves
As I neared the brook
It babbled to me
Letting me know it was there
The growth got thicker as I neared it
The path became more obscure
There was much growing
In the valley
Near the brook
I crossed the small brook
Heading up the other side
Steeper and steeper was the climb
The sky started clouding up
Darker clouds hiding the sun
Darker below the trees
The fragrance of rain filled my nostrils
The climb became even more difficult
Then the rain started
Gentle rain
Filtering through the leaves
Showering down upon me
As I continued upward incessantly
Desiring to reach the summit
The trees grew scarcer
The passing rain grew lighter
The clouds started to part
I came out of the trees into open air
Rocky ground was all around me
The sun started to peak through the distant clouds
Lowering on the horizon
The air was clean and clear
A I reached the summit
Watching the sunset
Brilliant reds filled the sky
As clouds were gilded gold
Extraordinary colors
Bade the setting sun goodbye

Reflecting on my trip that day
I realized
That every step was a joy
The valley had its pleasures
As did the summit
The rain was refreshing
The climb invigorating
The ending beautiful
Then I realized
That life is so like this walk of mine
Filled with ups and downs
Clear skies and rain
Valleys and mountains
It is all joy
It is all good
It is all a blessing
It is all a gift from God

The Heavenly Chorus

I hear the heav’nly chorus
Singing ‘round the throne
Angels sound their trumpets
As they worship God alone

Cherubim and seraphim
Flying as they sing
Join the gathered elders
Praise to God they bring

To the Lamb we sing blessing
Glory and honor
Power Forever Amen

My heart is lifted upward
To heavenly heights I climb
As I sing the angel chorus
With all my heart and mind

To the Lamb I sing blessing
Glory and honor
Power Forever Amen
To the Lamb I sing blessing
Glory and honor
Power Forever Amen

Holy is He
Holy is He
Holy is the Lamb
Holy is He
Holy is He
Holy is the Lamb

To the Lamb I sing blessing
Glory and honor
Power Forever Amen

The Masterpiece

It’s hard for me to fathom
How the master forms the clay
While it’s spinning so quickly on the wheel
I have watched Him use the water
As He forms and shapes the clay
The pressure that he gives must be ideal

When he finishes he looks
At the masterpiece he made
As it casts a silhouette upon the ground
In his image he created
Each one of us unique
There is not another one of you around

One by one he fashioned us
On the spinning wheel of life
The pressure of his hands through trials felt
The water of His cleansing word
Shapes and molds our lives
‘Til before His cross we solemnly have knelt

The master knows you better
Than you even know yourself
He always has the best for you in mind
He formed you to be his
Won’t you give your life to Him
Make Jesus the Lord of all your life
