Precious Are Your Thoughts To Me

You knew me when I did not know you
You cared for me when I did not care
You loved me when I cursed your name out loud
What a Savior you are to me

You saw me when sin was my playground
You sought me in that miry clay
You searched for my heart when my heart was stone
What a Savior you are to me

Precious are your thoughts to me
More than I can count
More than I know
Precious are your thoughts to me
What a Savor, what a friend indeed

You are there by my side when I need you
You hear me when I call your name
You wrap your arms around me when I’m hurt and feel alone
What a Savior you are you me


Savior and friend
You love ‘til the end
You captured my heart
Right from the start
You fill all my needs
Forgive my misdeeds
How marvelous is your grace
How marvelous is your grace


Psalm 40 Chorus

I waited patiently on the Lord
Then He inclined to me
He heard my cry
Oh, Lord, I love you so (REPEAT)

You picked me up
Out of the miry clay
Set my feet
On the rock to stay

There’s a new song in my mouth
Praises to my God
Praises to my King
Praises to my Lord

Victory by Death

He was beaten, bruised and torn
His body tired and worn
Yet he did not speak a word in His defense
A crown of thorns upon His head
His forehead slowly bled
Then pain and agony was quite intense

Then they placed a robe upon Him
With a scepter in His hands
The guard knelt down and mocked Him as a King
Little did they know their words
Were true through all of time
Because He was indeed the King of Kings

The cross was laid upon His back
He fell beneath its weight
His weak and bloody body just gave out
They led Him to Golgotha
They nailed Him to the cross
Forgive them was His final living shout

They thought they had the victory
But soon they would find out
That what they did would touch all of mankind
Three days He laid a dead man
But then He rose again
The victory over life and death complete

He brought us victory that day
He showed us His amazing grace
By dying and then rising up again
Now we should live for Him
His Word deep down within
For soon He will be coming back again

The Believers Life

Go and Do

Do you wonder who you are
or what you should do
if you are a Christian?
Do you wonder what His plan is
or what His will is
for your life?
The answer is clearly written
Clearly spelled out
In His word

You are the salt of the earth
The light of the world
The hope of nations
You are a child of the king
Adopted into God’s family
An heir of His blessing
You are a royal priest
A peculiar person
A chosen generation
You are washed in the blood
Redeemed by the Lamb
Unto good works

Your mission is to preach the gospel
Unto all the earth
Baptizing as you go
Heal the sick
Bring sight to the blind
Open the deaf ears and dumb mouths
Let your light shine
So all may see your good works
And glorify God
You are to be meek
poor in spirit
hungry and thirsty for righteousness
Mournful over sin
Reapers of the harvest
You are to speak
words of edification
That will minister grace
You are to show
love to your enemy
joy in the midst of trials
You are to forgive
all who may wrong you
and not be offended
You are to love
without hypocrisy
You are to bear all things
Believe all things
Hope all things
Endure all things
You are not to be proud
Or backbiters
Or gossipers
You are to be pure just
‘ Honest and true
Virtuous and full of praise

All of these things and many more
Are found in His word
A letter of love to you
If you’re looking for your purpose
It is already written
Now Go and Do!

The Believers Life

You’re Beautiful, Lord

You’re beautiful, Lord
My eyes behold your glory in the heavens
My lips sing your praise on the earth
My ears long to hear your still, small voice
I smell the fragrance of the afternoon rains and I rejoice
My feet are swift to run to you
My arms reach out to embrace you
You’re beautiful, Lord

You’re wonderful, Lord
You paid the price for my sin
You took the stripes for my healing
You were nailed to a cross to set me free
Your blood was spilled to cleanse my mind
You rose again to give me eternal life
You are coming back to take me home
You’re wonderful, Lord

I will lift up my voice and praise you’re sweet name
Jesus, King of Kings
Jesus, Lord of Lords
Jesus, Lamb that was slain for me
Jesus, my redeemer
Jesus, My Savior
Jesus, forever He will be with me


You have promised in your word you’ll always be there
To hold me in your arms when I am down
You have promised that you never will forsake me
When I’m lost your grace I’ve found

You have promised that you’d heal all my diseases
You will take away the pain I feel inside
You have promised that your joy will overwhelm me
That your peace always abides

You have promised that I am a new creation
My old life passed away when I met you
You have promised you would guide my every movement
All my ways I give to you

You have promised you will break the chains that bind me
When I put my trust in you I am set free
You have promised I’ll be filled with your sweet Spirit
He will dwell inside of me

I will stand upon the promises you gave me
In your Word I will find the words you gave
I will trust you with my life and all my future
For I know that you’re the one who gave me grace

Sweeter than the honey from the comb
Purer than the water from the rain
Truer than whatever this world gives me
Your promises are mine to gain
