One Path

I’ve traveled many roads
While living on this earth
Some led to a party
While others had not worth

It seemed I’d often end up
On a dead end in my life
I saw many ways to turn
But never could decide

But now my life is easier
The labyrinth is gone
There is now just one path
That I want to be on

It is the straight and narrow one
That leads to heaven’s gates
Are you now walking on that path
Come now and don’t be late

For Jesus Christ will soon return
To take the saved away
There’s only one path leading there
Accept His cross today

Safe in Jesus Arms

I am safe in Jesus arms
I am safe in Jesus arms
When the storms of life are gathered
He will keep me from all harm

I am safe in Jesus arms
I am safe in Jesus arms
When I don’t understand
I will reach for His hand
I am safe in Jesus arms

Constant abiding
Peace and be still
Joy everlasting
Hope that’s a thrill
Love overwhelming
Keeping me warm
I am safe in Jesus arms

I am safe in Jesus arms
I am safe in Jesus arms
When an illness tries to harm me
His healing comes along

I am safe in Jesus arms
I am safe in Jesus arms
When I dreary days
I just call on His name
I am safe in Jesus arms

Constant abiding
Peace and be still
Joy everlasting
Hope that’s a thrill
Love overwhelming
Keeping me warm
I am safe in Jesus arms

 

Time for a Choice

Oh what pleasures this world gives
Of what happiness I can live
Oh how silly is all of this
When you think of eternity

Life here on earth is time for choice
Ephemeral earth will be destroyed
We all will end with the sound of one voice
The judgment of God will arrive

And all who have chosen Christ as their Lord
Will end up in heaven their crowns will adorn
But those who rejected the one I adore
Will spend all their days in hell

I beg you today to make up your mind
Because this life determines life for all time
Once dead there is chance to change your mind
Choose Jesus and you will be saved

All of Me

All of my heart and soul

All of my mind and strength

All that’s within me sings to you

With my hands lifted high

Your name I magnify

I lift my hands to worship you

All of me will worship

All of me will praise you

All of me will bow before your throne

All of me will worship

All of me will praise you

I will give you all of me

True Separation

I forget way to often
This fact frustrates my wife
How much easier would things be
With a cobweb in my mind
Every thought would be captured
And would stay eternally
Because I have no spiders
Loose inside of me
Then I’d always remember
Jesus died for you and me
I could call on His word
To help your eyes to see

The word of God is swift
Sharper than a two edged sword
It can truly separate
Your body and your soul
It will reach inside and free you
From the sin that holds you down
I would always be prepared
To witness to the crowd
People would be healed
Souls would be set free
If the word of God was captured
By the cobweb inside me

I Tried

I tried to find wisdom
In things of this world
But soon i realized
That none was quite real

I tried to find peace
Instead chaos reigned
I tried to find joy
But sorrow prevailed

I tried to gain riches
But still I felt poor
No matter how much
I still wanted more

I tried to find hope
But doom filled my life
I tried to find love
Bit it always slipped by

Then I met Jesus
I learned that He died
He paid for my sins
He gave me new life
Now there is only
One thing that I try
That’s to follow my Savior
Until I should die

I know He will give me
All of these things
If I will remain
Everyday close to Him

Enemy Under Control

I’ve done a lot of things in the course of my life
From sales to flipping burgers and a manager at times
Through many of my years my life was ruled by pride
So often I would fool myself to thinking sin would hide

You see I was a hypocrite who lived a different life
In Jesus days the Pharisees were what I would be like
I’d masquerade as righteous while I lived a life of lies
Then one day I was challenged to bring my life in line

I finally realized that my life was full by pride
I learned to bring that enemy under control in time
Now I live my life by the words of Jesus Christ
In Him I will forever more abide

Real Bright

Some are like those tiny bulbs In refrigerators
Then shine when people are around but when alone they’re out
Some will shine like lanterns powered by some kind of gas
You must make sure the wick is up for them to shine about

But we as Christians need to shine the light of God real bright
There’s lots of darkness in the world where we must testify
And if our light is shining bright then hopefully they’ll swarm
Like bugs at night they’ll come around to just enjoy the light

His Eye is on Me

There are days when I wander off the path
Like a sheep that wanders off from the flock
I find that I have lost my way
Because my heart is prone to stray
I wonder if I’ll ever make it back

The briars and the brambles prick and wound me
I find myself desiring to return
I cry out to my God above
He watches over me with love
And guides me so I’ll know which way to turn

His eye is on me
He watches over me
Even in my darkest times
He is there beside
His eye is on me
He will guide me safely home
When I wander away
He is there

I’ve learned that in His love I will abide
For even when I turn and go astray
His eye is always watching me
Eventually I come to see
That when I’m lost He’s there to make a way

He makes a way through sickness
He makes a way through doubt
He makes a way through trials
He’ll always pull me out

His eye is on me
He watches over me
Even in my darkest times
He is there beside
His eye is on me
He will guide me safely home
When I wander away
He is there
