The Believers Life

Beyond

Beyond the mountains
Beyond the valley
Beyond the oceans
Beyond the rivers
Beyond the skyline
Beyond the fruited plain
You always go beyond

Beyond the clouds
Beyond the rainbow
Beyond the sun
Beyond the moon
Beyond the stars
Beyond the galaxy
You always go beyond

Beyond all knowledge
Beyond all wisdom
Beyond my wonder
Beyond my kingdom
Beyond thoughts
Beyond all expectation
You always go beyond

You go beyond my wildest dreams
Your mercy goes beyond all things
Your love goes beyond my thoughts
Your grace goes beyond my sin
Your joy goes beyond my sorrow
Your peace goes beyond my pain
No matter what I need
No matter what I dream
No matter what I think or understand
When all is said and done
You go beyond

Praise & Worship

All of His Love for Me

All that I hear about Jesus
All that I read about Jesus
All that I know about Jesus
Is that He loves me
He loves me

All that I’ve lived through
All that I’ve learned through
All that I’ve loved through
Shows me He loves me
He loves me

All that matters
All that gives life
All that satisfies
All that helps me survive
All that keeps me alive
All of His love for me
All of His love for me

All that life brings me
All that my eyes see
All that my life needs
Comes from His love
He loves me

Nothing else matters but His love
All of His love for me
All of His love for me
Nothing else matters but His love
All of His love for me
All of His love for me

The King is Coming

The King is coming
He is coming soon
He will ride a white horse
His raiment will be dipped in blood
The blood that was shed a Calvary
The blood that washed away our sins
And made us white as snow

The King is coming
He is faithful and true
His name is the Word of God
His eyes are ablaze with fire
He wears many crowns
His army is with Him
The army of the saints

The King is coming
The Lamb that was slain
The Lamb of God who is worshipped in heaven
Worshipped by four and twenty elders
Cherubim and Seraphim fly around His throne
They praise Him continually
Singing Holy, holy, holy
Honor and glory and blessing and power
To the Lamb upon the throne

The King is coming
He is coming for His own
He is coming for the born again
For those who have repented of their sins
For those who have asked His forgiveness
For those who believe He died for them
For those who believe that he rose again

The King is coming
Is He coming for you?
Will you be with Him in Heaven
Or will you be cast into the lake of fire
Will you spend eternity with Him
Or eternity in regret and suffering
Make Jesus Lord today
And eternity in heaven is yours

The Believers Life

At the Time Appointed

Every morning
Day after day
The sun rises slowly
Casting it’s light
Whether cloudy or clear
We see it approaching
The rays stretching far across the horizon
Creeping slowly across the sky
Until the brilliant light
Peaks above the horizon
At the time appointed

Twice a day
Day after day
The tide rushes in
Farther up the sand
Or higher against the rocks
Footprints disappear
Sand castles fall
Reaching its peak it than recedes
Leaving seaweed and shells
And a smooth sand
At the time appointed

The moon travels
Day after day
Across the sky
Various shapes fill our eyes
Crescent moon then half
Half then full
Then back the other way
Affecting oceans by its pull
Causing the tide to rise and fall
The suns light causes the moons shape
Over and over again
At the time appointed

We all will face God
We all will give account
We all will answer for this life
Jesus is the Way
The Truth
The Life
No man comes to the Father but by Him
Have you accepted Him
So that you will be with Him
At the time appointed

Jesus Life

The Light

What an awesome God I serve
He sent His Spirit to survey this world
When it was dark and void of life
His Spirit roamed to find emptiness
Nothing
Darkness
Then he spoke and there was Light
Light that shone without a source
Light that engulfed the whole world
All at once
No more darkness
Anywhere
Day and Night were now entrenched
Never to be changed again
He spoke again and dry land appeared
Above the waters
Separated by the waters
No life yet
Just dry land beside still waters
Land ready to produce
Land ready to be occupied
Then He separated the heavens from the earth
Clouds appeared
Two days had passed
On day three God spoke again
He caused the grass to grow
And the trees to grow
The fruit trees which carried their own seed
He looked out up all He had done
And said It is Good
On the fourth day
He spoke again
Let there be lights in the sky
The Sun by day
The moon by night
Let stars shine in the heavens
Placed one by one
And it was so
These lights did not replace the first Light
Which now shines in our hearts
On our sin
To show us God’s way
His path
The first Light was the Word of God
And the Word became flesh
And dwelt among us
He taught us
Showed us the Father
That we might believe
Then He was taken
Beaten
Scourged
Accused falsely
Condemned to die
On a cross
Crucified
A crown of thorns on His head
Spit on
Mocked
Made to carry His cross
Nails through His feet and hands
Vinegar to drink
And darkness covered the earth
During the middle of the day
The Light was hanging on a tree
The unblemished Lamb of God
Sacrificed for all my sins
Took my place
And died for me
Placed in a borrowed tomb
Wrapped in a linen cloth
Stone placed at the entrance
Sealed by the rulers
Guards put in place
No escape
But nothing could hold the Light
On the third day He came forth
Once again to shine the Light
The Light that was from the beginning
The Light that will never die
Heaven and earth will pass away
But His Word
His Light
Will remain forever and ever
What an awesome God I serve

Amazing Things

What keeps me from giving my all
To answer the call
You’ve given to me

Why do I hold back
Is it for lack of faith
That you’ll do what you say

Help me Lord to see
That I can be
All that you’ve showed to me

Lord I humbly come before you
Take my pride away from me
Lord I truly do adore you
Make me all that you want me to be
If I’d only trust in you
And not myself
If I’d give all that I have
Get off the shelf
You’d do amazing things

I must find a way
To walk in faith
And reach the lost today

Open my eyes
Help me realize
You’ll give the words to say

All of you
None of me
So that others may see
Of your love
From above
Shine through me

Lord I humbly come before you
Take my pride away from me
Lord I truly do adore you
Make me all that you want me to be
If I’d only trust in you
And not myself
If I’d give all that I have
Get off the shelf
You’d do amazing things
