Limitless

This world is full of questions
Asking what this life is for
Why have we been put on earth
What purpose is in store
Some people look for answers
In horoscopes and stars
Some might find a talisman
To find out who they are

There’s really only one true way
To find your destiny
Give your life to Jesus Christ
And He will give you peace
He is the creator
Of everything we see
That is why He is the one
Who knows what you shall be

He has a plan for everyone
No matter what their size
He wants to take you in His arms
And show you what is wise
He wants the best for you each day
His plan is limitless
If you’ll just trust your life to Him
You truly will be blessed

All Creation Testifies

I sing glory to your name
Glory to your name
Glory to your name oh Lord

I sing holy is your name
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

I sing worthy is your name
Worthy is your name
Worthy is your name oh Lord

I sing Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

 

Life Overflowing

When I think of His mercy
His grace
His passion
His wonderful love
That flows from above

When I see His creation
Hear the birds
See the sunset
His tapestry flows
As nature unfolds

When I think that He came down
From His throne
To die alone
He took my sins
Gave me peace within

When I think that He rose again
Seated on high
On heaven’s throne
He prepares a place
I will see His face

My enraptures my heart
Fills my life overflowing
I am overwhelmed by Jesus
He comforts my soul
His blessings surround me
What a glorious Lord we serve

Stricken With Love

She walked in the church
And sat right behind me
Her beauty transcended
My jaw hit the floor floor
I’d requested she come
Though we never had met
Yet when church was over
Her talk was ignored

That night she returned
As I walked through the door
Our eyes met so sweetly
I was stricken with love
The next night a service
We both would attend
The next day I wept
As back home I drove

Halfway on my trip
I stopped at an inn
Opened the Bible
There in the stand
Wrote her a letter
If I come to her
Will she by my girl
Our life would begin

Arriving back home
I gave my notice
Before I had heard
She accepted my offer
Two months went by
She came with some friends
To bring me to Iowa
My old life was over

Three months later
We married at last
Three children three towns
Forty years have now passed
I can still see that lithe form
That walked in the room
Her eyes full of life
Are a memory that’s cherished

Mercy Wins

When I’m in a battle
I know you are there
To strengthen me for the fight
When sickness is looming
I know I’ll survive
My healing comes through your stripes

Your grace is the greatest
When trouble surrounds me
My faith is uplifted when trials arise
So I will have joy
When my life faces setbacks
I know you are guiding my life

Mercy wins Mercy wins
In ever dark storm Mercy wins
You will not leave me Helpless at all
In every test In every trial
Mercy wins Mercy wins

I will walk on today
Knowing you’re with me
Holding me close in your loving arms
Prayer with Thanksgiving
Instead of worry
Will bring a peace to my longing heart

I will rejoice
I will rejoice
Always in all things
I will rejoice

Mercy wins Mercy wins
In ever dark storm Mercy wins
You will not leave me Helpless at all
In every test In every trial
Mercy wins Mercy wins

Full Volume

I sleep at night in the basement
Which can get rather boring
My plight is due to just one thing
The sonorous sound of my snoringpoem,

There’s another time in my life
When a different sonorous sound
Is enjoyed by the people before me
As I lead worship to the Lord

Then we enter into the throne room
Where the Lamb sits on the throne
We sing full volume together
As we worship Christ alone

Tell the World

Reign in the Heavens
Sweet Lamb of God
Twenty four elders
Praise ‘round your throne
Cherubim shout out
Holy are you
Seraphim fall down
Worship is due

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

Rain down from Heaven
Spirit of God
Fill us with power
To tell of His love
Grant us your wisdom
Your words we seek
Fill us with boldness
To preach in the street

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

He’s the one who gives us power
He’s the one who gives us strength
To tell the world
To tell the world
Of His great love

Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the Lamb who was slain
Blessing and glory
Honor and power
To the lamb who was slain

Walking By

I walked by him completely on purpose
That old man that sat there alone
My gait even started to speed up
Even though I had nowhere to go

His clothes were dirty and tattered
His smell filled the cool morning air
I could see he had been there a while
But I walked on without a care

Then I heard his voice as it rattled
It stopped me there in my tracks
Son don’t you know that I’m Jesus
I was hoping you’d turn and come back

Do I see the needy
Do I hear their cry
Or am I too busy
When I pass them by
Do I not remember
What Jesus said
What I do for others
I do for Him

I turned to face him and looked again
His eyes locked on me filled with pain
His smile was broad and his teeth were brown
I saw a man who needed a friend

I walked on over and gave him my hand
He latched onto me and arose
We walked off together to get a good meal
As we talked about life in this world

After sharing a meal and chatting a while
I asked what he had in store
He said he had lost all he had in this world
When he came home distressed from the war

Please listen to what I am saying
It is time to open our eyes
There are hundreds of needs all around us
Watch and you’ll be surprised

Do I see the needy
Do I hear their cry
Or am I too busy
When I pass them by
Do I not remember
What Jesus said
What I do for others
I do for Him

I nearly cried as he told me his tale
All the things he had to endure
The torment that filled his mind was intense
And I’m not sure what is the cure

I asked him to come and stay with me
I’d help him to find his way
I never knew I would find a friend
By just walking by on this day

Do I see the needy
Do I hear their cry
Or am I too busy
When I pass them by
Do I not remember
What Jesus said
What I do for others
I do for Him

Beyond Measure

He is seated on the throne
The Lamb who was slain
All glory to Him
Who rose again

Cherubim and Seraphim
Flying ‘round His glory
Shouting to the heavens
Holy Holy Holy

He is high and lifted up
Resplendent beyond measure
The elders dance before Him
For He is their treasure

I can’t wait for the day
I will join their praise
Singing glory hallelujah
To Jesus Christ our Lord

These Words I Write

I’ve given up foods
I’ve given up booze
I’ve given up drugs
I’ve passed up on hugs
I’ve given up parties
I’ve given up pastries
All to clean up my life

I’ve tried to obey
But I’ve gone astray
On most every day
I lose my way
I fall down and pray
The wrong words I say
My life is so far from right

I’m so glad that God does not expect perfection
For He gave His Son to pay for my salvation
The quintessential sacrifice was made
So God above could show His awesome grace
Now I will gladly give Him all my adoration

These words I write
To help you find Light
That you will gain life
From His sacrifice
His love never dies
It’s yours for all time
Please call on the Lord today
