Jesus Life

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

 

Our Salvation

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

The Believers Life

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

Grace & Mercy

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

The Believers Life

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
