For Me

This one thing I know.
Jesus loves me so
Died upon a tree
Just to set me free
Shed His precious blood
Just to show His love 
For me

 

I will give my life
All to Jesus Christ
His I’ll always be
For He’s done so much 
For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

For me

 

One more thing I know

One day I will go

Up into the air

He will meet me there

Never more to roam

He’s prepared a home

For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

Avoiding The Fire

I have to admit, I’m a sinner

I’ll never be perfect down here

Try hard as I can

I never will stand

As a sinless man, that’s for sure

 

But I made a choice long ago

To avoid being scorched for all time

I asked Jesus in

And He covered my sin

Now heavens my home for all time

 

I am sure that you don’t intend

To burn in hell when your life ends

Why not ask Him today

To take your sins away

And you can have peace in the end

Yep, He Was Real

We’ve all heard stories from long ago

About people and creatures that just weren’t so

These made up tales

Were told to regale

And through time some believed what they told

 

But to say that Jesus was mythical

Is truly quite unethical

There’s plenty of proof

To make it a truth

That Jesus was real and methodical

 

He came to this earth as a sacrifice

And He lived to offer up His life

His blood set us free

From sins dread diisease

And He rose to give life for all time

No Filter Now!

I’ve always enjoyed a cup of coffee

When I rise up in the morn

It used to be I would percolate it

But now Mr Coffee’s the norm

 

I used to percolate things of God

I’d filter out what I opposed

That left me wondering if God was real

Or if he was just a big hoax

 

But then I met Jesus one fateful day

And my whole attitude was changed

Now I take in the whole word of God

And I’ll never be the same

I Was A Righteous Dude!

I used to be called righteous

Because I was really cool

I was oft called a righteous dude

As I walked through my school

But then I learned my righteousness

Was filthy rags so gross

So I gave my life to Jesus

And He washed me white as snow

Now I walk each day with Jesus

He calls me His son

And He gives me His righteousness

I’m so glad I  found His love

A New Catch

When I was a kid, the water

Was one place I liked to play

Catching bullfrogs, skippping rocks

Was how we spect our day

 

And one more thing consumed our time

And sent us ’round the town

The thirll of catching one big fish

That I could call my own.

 

Iit wasn’t easy work too do

Those fish would fight real hard

To be quite honest, I was not

A fishermann at heart..

 

So fishing is a memory

That I don’t live today

The thought of stannding, waiting

Just doesn’t make my day.

 

However there’s anothe kind

Of fishing that I know

This kind is something I  can do

Wherever I might go

 

Jesus came to save me

And to set me free indeed

But He alos had a plan for me

To help find those in need.

 

He said I’d be a fisherman

The lost would be the catch

So now I fish ’bout every day

And hope someone to bless

Don’t Get Burned

I love to camp in the summer

And cook on the open flames

The food is so delightful

When we cook that way

 

Once in a while I’ll slip up

And get too close to the fire

I feel the heat on my hand

And I know that’s not my desire

 

I just can’t imagine the suffering

Of eternity spent in Hell

The heat of those flames unceasing

For all who who missed Christ and fell

 

So today put your trust in Jesus

And ask Him into your heart

Avoid the flames of that fire

And make a brand new start
