It’s You I Choose

His voice spoke silently
As I awoke from my night’s sleep
Words that filtered to my soul
Words of peace and joy and hope

I knew that He was there with me
To tell me He has set me free
Free from worry doubt and fear
Free from sorrow with its tears

Oh what mercy then I felt
I stooped down and there I knelt
Quietly beside my bed
Slowly bowing down my head

Lord I don’t deserve your grace
I don’t deserve your warm embrace
I haven’t done all that you’ve asked
I’ve been too lazy in the task

As I bowed with weeping eyes
He spoke to me with words so wise
My child I paid the price for you
And now my child it’s you I choose

I choose to love you more each day
I choose to guide you in my ways
I choose to show my word to you
No matter what it’s you I choose

I wept there as I knelt in prayer
I felt His spirit in the air
He chose me to be His child
All my sins He reconciled

Because He’s done so much for me
From now on it’s my heartfelt plea
To do all that He asks me to
So now my question is will you?

 

Minister Grace

At the end of the day when I’m weary
And I’m ready to lay down my head
I think back on the things that have happened
And the words that were flippantly said

I don’t know why I spoke things I shouldn’t
I don’t know why my words slipped out wrong
But I know that now when I look back
I ask forgiveness before long

Let the words of my mouth be cautious
Let the thoughts in my mind show mercy
Let my spirit be full of your great great love
So that I might minister grace

As I lay my head down I pray softly
Asking God to help me tomorrow
I desire that my words will flow gently
To help all that they touch see my Lord

Words of love and peace
Words of joy and hope
Words of salt and light
Words of grace thats bold

Let the words of my mouth be cautious
Let the thoughts in my mind show mercy
Let my spirit be full of your great great love
So that I might minister grace

Inner Peace

I still remember when I came to Jesus
And asked Him to forgive all of my sin
He did not hesitate
To wash me clean that day
I felt His peace sweep over me within

And since that day I’ve even grown much fonder
Of what my Savior did for me that day
It was so long ago
Yet it still seems as though
Each day my heart is cleansed once again

I need Him every day
I need Him so I pray
Each day I ask Him to renew my vow
I need His joy and peace
His love will never cease
To fill my heart with all that He bestows

I hope that you have asked Jesus to save you
And wipe away the sin that’s in your life
Repent of all today
Let Jesus guide your way
He died as your redeeming sacrifice

By His grace He saved you
By His grace He gave you
Freedom from the sin that troubled you
By His mercy He
Will bring you inner peace
Just ask Him in your heart today

Precious Lord and Savior
I fall down at your feet
Please let me stay here for eternity
You are all I could want
All that my heart desires
My Lord of Life how I love you so

Jesus Life

I Remember the Cross

There are times that I get hurt by those around me
They do something that I don’t really like
I’ll fuss and moan about offenses given
And I’ll hold my anger right ion through the night

I don’t feel any better
In fact I feel much worse
This feeling that’s inside of me
Can soon become a curse
Somehow I must release it
I search for ways to cope
And then I look to Jesus
That’s where I find my hope

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone

Now each time someone might say something offensive
Or do something that hurts down in my soul
Right there and then I pray and I forgive them
There’s none of that offense that I will hold

Forgiveness I will give
Forgiveness I will live
I’ll put aside offenses
I’ll live a life of love
For Jesus paid the price
And He’s forgiven me
I’ll practice that forgiveness
So others will be free

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone

The Grace that Covers Me

Every day I’m getting closer
To your precious holy way
You are working in my spirit
So your path my feet will take
As I yield my mind and body
Giving you my every care
You will gently guide me onward
Then one day I’ll see your face

Oh what wonder
Oh what glory
That you would care for me
I will ever
Tell the story
Of the grace that covers me

You have taught me to be patient
By the trials I’ve gone through
There have been so many chances
For me to draw close to you
As I go through every valley
And I see your mercy there
I can trust that I am growing
Through each gift you choose to share

Oh what wonder
Oh what glory
That you would care for me
I will ever
Tell the story
Of the grace that covers me

I look for you everyday
I follow you by your grace
I trust in your sweet embrace
I long to see your face

Oh what wonder
Oh what glory
That you would care for me
I will ever
Tell the story
Of the grace that covers me

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
