Once upon a time there was a Savior Who came down from the heavens high above He came a humble babe And in a manger lay He came to teach us of His Father’s love He walked upon the earth and brought deliverance The common people flocked to hear him speak But man of high estate Thought death would be His fate They convinced the people that His life was fake This Savior was condemned to cruel death They whipped Him so His blood ran crimson red Then they nailed Him to a tree Thinking they had victory They’d be rid of Him once His flesh was dead Then on that cross He spoke some words that traveled Down through the course of man for all of time He said father forgive them For they know not what they do Then he bowed His head and silently He died The men of high estate were quite elated The man they couldn’t stand was finally gone But three days after death He rose again to life Bringing happily ever after to us all This little verse may seem a fairy tale But it is true and Jesus lives today Just give your life to Him And He’ll forgive your sin Then for all time you will reign and live with Him
When I woke up this morning, I heard Jesus He was calling out my name loud and clear I rose up from my bed and said I’m here Lord Please speak your words of comfort in my ear He said I love you son I said I love you Lord He said I’m with you everywhere you go He said I’ll lead you, Son I said I’ll follow, Lord He said You’re my child forevermore As I go about my daily preparation I keep listening to hear the words He says If we block out all the noise that this world offers We can know His voice is there throughout the day He says I’ll heal you son I say forgive me Lord He says I forgave all your sins upon the cross He says I’ll give you peace I say my words of praise He says you’re my child forevermore My child I’m with you in the darkest moments My child I’m with you in the raging storm My child I’ll lift you up out of the valley And set your feet on the solid ground He said I love you son I said I love you Lord He said I’m with you everywhere you go He said I’ll lead you, Son I said I’ll follow, Lord He said You’re my child forevermore

Making time Losing time Forgetting the time We all have the same amount Ever minute, every day, every year It's not a matter of how much time But how we use the time It is a gift to us A precious gift From God Do I squander it? Do I plan it? Do I ignore it? Do I watch it? Do I use it to the fullest, Or squander it away? God's gifts are meant to be cherished Every moment should be cherished Every moment accounted for Every moment be made special Every moment given back to Him. I will lift my praise every moment I will lift my prayers every moment I will lift His name every moment I will honor Him every moment How will you use your time today?
