Press On

You may have stumbled and fallen
In your life today
But the Spirit would say press on
You may have troubles and trials
That will not go away
But the Spirit would say press on
You may think what you’ve done
Is a sin far to great
Bu the Spirit would say press on
You may think that you’ve failed’
And now it’s too late
But the Spirit would say press on

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

If you doubt you are saved
But you’ve confessed His name
Then the Spirit would say press on
The enemy will try
To deny His sweet name
But the Spirit would say press on

Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done
Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

Behold My Son

The time has come
The night is passed
The sun is soon
To rise at last

As I await
The morning light
I look to God
To give me sight

Behold the sun
It’s brilliant rays
Light up the clouds
When comes the day

Amidst the shadows
When trouble looms
I wait for God
To bring good news

His voice I hear
In grace so mild
Lift up your head
My little child

Behold my Son
Look on His face
Soon all your sorrow
Will erase

He’ll bring you joy
His peace abounds
Stand near to Him
On Holy ground

Behold my Son
His grace will shine
Just like the sunrise
In the sky

In every day
When trouble comes
Get rid of fear
Behold my Son

Myself

I wandered in darkness for so many years
Full of myself yet empty with fear
My life was a mess my eyes filled with tears
What did I do to myself

Every pleasure my heart would desire
So many riches my flesh would require
Whatever my soul longed for transpired
What have I done to myself

I looked for an answer in so many places
Tried to find love with so many faces
But never did I find a thing that replaces
What I have done to myself

I heard of a love that never would die
A love that would save one such as I
A love that would take away all the lies
That I always told myself

I turned to this man who came from above
I came to this man who had all this love
When I cam to Him He was enough
For me to turn from myself

He brought me into His wonderful Light
My life turned to day from the dark of the night
I knew He had come to transform my life
Because I couldn’t do it myself

Oh what a wonderful Savior is He
Oh what a miracle He did for me
Jesus my Lord brought me to my knees
He took me out of myself

I am no longer bound to my sin
I now have joy and peace within
With Him I know I always will win
Because I’ve given Him my self

 

Effective Prayer

Jesus I Trust You

There are days that I don’t know
Just what God will do
It seems that it find trouble
In everything I do

Then comes disappointment
As I try to work it out
Soon I get discouraged
When things don’t turn about

Its then I hear His still small voice
Calling out my name
I try to listen closely
I’m sure this is what He said

Trust me
Trust my child
Everything is under my control
I always have a plan
And it’s always for your good
Just trust me my child
Just trust me

Once I heard those words
My spirit came alive
Despite my circumstances
I knew I was alright

I lifted up my hands
While a lifted up my voice
Knowing He was with me
Caused me to rejoice

Then with my loudest voice
I worshiped His dear name
I spoke with affirmative
These words I did proclaim

I trust you
Jesus I trust you
You have not ever failed me
You won’t leave now
From now on when the trials come
When storm clouds loom ahead
I’ll trust you
Jesus I’ll trust you

Jesus Touched Me

I was lost and all alone
Having no place to call home
Then the light of heaven shone
Jesus touched me

I could not find my way
Traveled aimlessly each day
Then I raised my voice to pray
Jesus touched me

Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
Jesus gave His life for me
When He died at Calvary
Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
I’m so glad that He has set me free

Now I can call heaven home
I’m no longer here alone
I will worship at His throne
Jesus touched me

In a moment He saved me
In a moment I was free
In a moment sin was washed away from me
When Jesus came to me
I could feel His love and peace
Now forever more I will be with Him

Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
Jesus gave His life for me
When He died at Calvary
Jesus touched me
Jesus touched me
I’m so glad that He has set me free

 

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

Serving the Lord

Sweet Words

I am constantly reminded of my failures
By the enemy that lurks inside my mind
Hew takes every opportunity to mock me
And to make me feel I’ve really missed the mark

It’s so easy to give ear to what he’s saying
For I always seem to think that I fall short
But if I listen closely there’s another voice
Speaking words that cause me peace and joy

Sweet words of Jesus
Words of life
Words that bring healing
Words that end strife
Sweet words of wonder
Words of grace
Words that uplift me
To a higher plane

Now I choose to shut out the enemy
Who would fill my mind with fear and doubt
I will listen to the words of my Savior
In the midst of my trials He’ll bring me out

Sweet words of mercy
Words of faith
Words that deliver
Words that save
Sweet words of His love
Spoken in my ear
Words that bring life
To all who hear

Open up His word
Listen everyday
There is so much
He has to say
Sweet words of Jesus
Spoken to you
Follow His word
In all you do
