Our Salvation

Unceasing

Shining
Brightly shining
From the sky above
Down to earth below
Every day
The sun’s rays stream down
From so far away
To touch us all
To heat us all
To give us sight
The light reveals colors
In its prismatic glow
Radiating energy and warmth
Even when the clouds appear
Seemingly blocking it out
The warmth still comes
The light still comes
It cannot be quenched
It cannot be darkened
It cannot be stopped
From rising each day
At the appointed time
And setting the same
With brilliance
And majesty
It shines from the heavens
Through all the earth
Unrelenting
Unceasing

So is God’s love
It always shines
Touching us all
With His mercy
And amazing grace
His love is pure and kind
Patient and not envious
His love always seeks our best
Always finds a way
Through every trial
Every test
Every temptation
His love
Never leaves us
Never forsakes us
Always shines its glory on us
Though He is King of Kings
And Lord of Lords
He still loves a sinner like me
He still loves me
When I lose my way
Nothing can separate me from His love
Not mountains or valleys
Not rivers or oceans
Not heaven or hell
Not forces of the spiritual realm
They have no power over His love
His love is always there
Unrelenting
Unceasing

Safe In Your Arms

I can’t imagine what I’d do without you
You fill up all my days with Joy and peace
And when I am afraid
You send your precious race
To give me rest and set my mind at ease

I never will go anywhere without you
Your Spirit guides me down the path of life
And if I go astray
You gently show the way
To get me back where I can walk the line

Oh precious Savior
Oh wondrous Lord
You give me victory
In this old world
My life is yours, Lord
I’ll always be
Safe in your arms
For all eternity

I never will do anything without you
You give me wisdom for the trials of life
And if I should mess up
Your mercy is enough
To gently guide me through every time

You show me and you lead me
Guide me and precede me
You carry me
You rescue me
You’re everything to me

Oh precious Savior
Oh wondrous Lord
You give me victory
In this old world
My life is yours, Lord
I’ll always be
Safe in your arms
For all eternity

Jesus My Lord and King

When I lift up my hands
And lift up my voice in praise
I can sense your sweet spirit
And feel your amazing grace
I will honor you
And worship your holy name
Jesus you’re all to me
My loving Savior

Jesus, my Lord and King
Jesus, my everything
I will love and adore you
Bow down before you
Your praise I’ll gladly sing
Jesus my Lord and King
I love you
That’s why I offer my praise
This day

He’s the Best

He’s the best
He can pass any test
He’s above all the rest
He’s the best

When I need healing
When life is reeling
When sins appealing
He’s the best

When peace is gone
When I’m alone
When life goes wrong
He’s the best

He’s the best for my soil
The best for my spirit
The best for the depths of my heart
He’s the best for my health
The best for deliverance
The best for my days from the start

So I’ll trust in Jesus
I’ll run to Him
I’ll give my life to Him
Make Him my Lord
Because when all is done
He’s the best

 

Hold On

When all seems lost
When life is not fair
When you are alone
And it seems no one cares
When it seems all your plans
Are like smoke in the air
Hold on

When trials take over
And you see no way out
When the storms come up hard
And they fill you with doubt
When you cannot find peace
As waves toss you about
Hold on

Hold on to Jesus
Never let go
Hold onto hope
He’s the giver of hope
Hold onto love
He’s the author of love
Hold onto Jesus
He is enough

Hold onto grace
His grace covers all
Hold onto mercy
His mercy can’t fail
Hold onto faith
He’ll work with that seed
Hold onto Jesus
He’ll meet your need

He’ll never fail
He’s always there
He’s true and just
He is enough
He’ll see you through
He will calm you
Just cling to Jesus
Hold on

I’m Resting In Jesus

I’m resting in Jesus
Though trails may come
I know He will help me
I’ve already won
He gave me the victory
There in the cross
So I rest in Jesus
He paid the cost

I’m resting in Jesus
Through every storm
The weaves may get high
But He will bring calm
The wind may be blowing
In troubling seas
But He’ll say be still
And bring me His peace

I’m resting in Jesus
When my health goes bad
He paid for my healing
With stripes on His back
I’ll lift up my hands
I’ll give Him by praise
For I know my healing
Rests in His grace

I’m resting in Jesus
When sorrows loom large
My world may be troubled
Yet He is in charge
When I can’t explain
The pain in my soul
He comes flooding in
And fills me with joy

Won’t you rest today
In His wonderful arms
He died for your sins
He died to bring calm
He died on that cross
So long ago
So that you can have rest
Wherever you go

 

I’m Forever Grateful

I was shackled
Bound with chains
Heavy chains
They wrapped around me like a serpent
My mind was in a prison
A prison of sin
Of shame
Of doubt and sadness
I looed good on the outside
But these chains bound my spirit
My mind
My soul
My being
There seemed to be no escape
I could not loose the chains
I could not pick the lock that held them
I could not free myself
I was stuck in darkness
Solitude loomed over me
I sank deeper
And deeper
Into the depravity of my sin’
My thoughts
My actions
I felt surrounded by a force
Too strong for me to fight
It beat me down every day
I became weary
And depressed
I was ready to just give up

Then I met Jesus
I met the Savior
The Redeemer
I learned he died for me
For my sin
To take away my shame
And doubt
And guilt
He came to loose the chains that bound me
He came to fight my battle for me
He came to bring victory
All I had to do was call His name
Confess my sins
Repent of my ways
Put on His yoke
Make Him my Lord
And follow Him
The rest of my days
He would free me
He would fight for me
He would give me strength
And joy
And peace
He would guide me safely through life
He would teach me His ways
He would become my friend
Always with me
Always helping me

Jesus, I’m yours
I’, all yours
I trusted in you
And you set me free
Free from my shackles
Free from the chains of sin
You set me feet on solid ground
Turned my life around
Gave me all this by grace
A free gift
No charge
You just want me
All of me
Every thought
Every action
Every word
For your glory
I thank you Lord
For your mercy
And your grace
On a sinner such as I
I didn’t deserve any of it
‘Yet you loved me anyway
You sought me out
You pulled me out
I’m forever grateful
Forever grateful to you
