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

in response to the daily prompt Conveyor

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

Come

Come
Out of your misery
Into His mercy
Come

Come
Out of disgrace
Into His grace
Come

Stay
Feel no alarm
Safe in His arms
Stay

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

Come
Worship His name
Lifting our praise
Come

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 who was slain
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
Come
Come
Come

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
