Nowhere But The Cross

I’ve searched the whole world over to find an inner peace
I’ve travelled through the nations to find joy that would not cease
I’ve looked up to the heavens to find a hope that settled me
But I found these are nowhere but the cross
 
I put my trust in doctors to heal my earthly pains
I’ve worked through much exhaustion for money I could gain
I’ve been in plays and speeches to see if I’d find fame
But I found these are nowhere but the cross
 
CHORUS
The cross provides my healing
The cross provides my peace
The cross will give me joy that will never ever cease
The cross gives hope forever
And love eternally
If I want that life abundantly
There is nowhere but the cross
 
I’ve had dreams and premonitions that did not satisfy
All that I have wanted and all that I desire
Is to find that special place where Jesus does abide
And that is found nowhere but the cross
 
CHORUS

BRIDGE
Down on my knees before you
Down on my knees in prayer
Lifting up holy hands
Giving you all my praise
Humbly I ask forgiveness
Honestly open my heart
Come Holy Spirit and heal me
Here at the foot of the cross
 
CHORUS

ENDING
I want to find that special place
Where Jesus does abide
I know it’s found
Nowhere but the cross

Unite My Heart

My heart is divided, Lord
I am undone
I know that I’ve failed you
This cannot go on
When my fear of you falters
The enemy’s won
Lord, please unite my heart
 
One side wants to serve you
Giving you praise
My fleshly heart falters
And wanders away
All this division
Keeps me in a daze
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
When I put it together you can use me.  Use me.
When I no longer wander from your presence. Your presence
There is nothing I can’t do
That you have called me to
You will hear me when I pray
I will hear the words you say
I’ll no longer walk away from you,
Oh Lord, my God
 
My heart is wide open
Come to me now
I need your forgiveness
Please touch me now
Only by your mercy’
Only by your grace
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
 
One side wants to praise you
The other wants to sin
One side wants forgiveness
The other lies again
One side wants your mercy
Implores to find your grace
Come and turn my fleshly heart
To give you all the praise
 
CHORUS

Through the Storm

I come to you down on my knees
Hoping you will hear my plea
Ease my suff'ring ease my pain
So I can praise you once again
 
You speak to me so plain and clear
Making sure that I will hear
When you praise me through the storm
I will rescue you from harm
 
Through the storm I'll praise you 
Through the storm I'll worship 
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you
 
I rise up from my knees in haste
I lift my voice in grateful praise
Your word has spoken to my heart
From your praise I'll not depart
 
Hallelujah hallelujah 
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
Praise to you I sing
 
Through the storm I'll praise you 
Through the storm I'll worship 
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you
 

The Love of the Cross

I could search a million miles across this earthly home
I could seek out every passion that has captured a heart
I could look for what is greatest
According to this world
But I'll never find a greater love than Jesus imparts 
 
CHORUS
He stretched out His arms for me
When they nailed Him to that tree
He bled and died to wash my sins away
What a precious gift of grace
What a precious gift of grace
 
No power is greater than the blood of the Lamb
No hope us greater than His promise to man
No one can hold Him back He's coming again 
No love is greater than the love of the cross
 
I have seen how lives have been changed when a person looks to Jesus
Turning from their sin and making Him Lord of all
When they finally hear His voice and answer His call
There's no power on earth that can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does 
 
Chorus
 
Bridge
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me from His love (4X)

Now Him I Know

I walked into the nursing home that day knowing very soon I would leave in tears
I was here to visit a dear old friend who was slowly losing his mind
And I was with his wife of over 50 years
 
As we walked into his room I saw his children there three boys and one lovely daughter
They were standing by his chair; the girl was sitting down,
And they were sharing in a little bit of laughter
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
His wife walked up beside the bed and smiled and he returned a look of wonder and a sigh
She said “How are you today my dear.  I’ve missed you oh so much”
And she reached out and gave a gentle touch
 
The old man looked bewildered she was there.  He said “Do I know you?  Why do you care?”
As she held back the tears, she said “I am your wife,
And we’ve been together nearly all our lives”
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
She turned to leave the room, but they looked back to her life’s love
And she uttered one more thing before she left the room
“Jesus Loves You, this I know” were the final words she said
And the old man’s eyes got big and he lifted up his head
 
 
 
“Now Him I know!  He’s the Savior of my soul!
I gave my life to him so many years ago.”
His wife came running up, and with a hug she kissed his cheek
She said “Soon you will see him, and you’ll walk on golden streets”
 
Yes, Him I know!  He’s the one who makes me whole
I will walk with Him in heaven, walk on streets of gold
And even though I don’t know much down here on earth below
Quite soon I’ll be in heaven because – Him I know!
 
Many of us know a lot of people.  We may know business owners who can help us figure out what product will best suit our needs.  We may know plumbers who can come in a fix a clogged drain or hook up a new sink.  We may know the mailman who faithfully delivers the mail every day.  We may know electricians, and pastors and politicians and many other people who can help us get through life.  We may have a bevy of friends who can come to our aid in times of trouble.  It’s good to know a lot of people!
 
But there is only one that  matters/  Knowing Jesus as my personal Savior is the only way to get to Heaven. He said He is the way and that no one goes to the Father except through Him.  We must know Jesus!  Do you know Jesus today.  If not, ask Him to forgive you of your sins.  Make Him Lord of your life today.  It is a decision you will never regret. I pray everyone who reads this knows Jesus!
 
 
 
 

Show Forth His Praise

Show forth His praise. 
Even when I lose my way
Even on my worst days,
I want to show forth His praise.
Even when the battle rages,
even when my faith engages,
I want to show forth His praise. 
Every day and every night
May my praise show forth His light
Letting the world know that Jesus Christ is Lord!

The Puzzle

I need your grace deep inside of me
I once was lost you set me free
 
I need your mercy every single day
I’m prone to wander. You show the way
 
CHORUS
Every time I fall apart
You come and put me back together
Like puzzle pieces strewn about’
My scattered life is in your hands
There is no way I can live without you
You are the one who holds me forever
You slowly find the piece I need
The picture you have always planned
 
I need your love so desperately
Lord hear my humble plea
 
CHORUS

BRIDGE (sing twice)
Your joy, your joy fills up my heart
Your peace, your peace does not depart
The hope you place in side of me
Brings visions of eternity
 
CHORUS
Praise and Worship

I Magnify Your Name

I come before your throne
You are God and God alone
Lifted high in majesty
Your love surrounding me
Over everything I’ve got
You are the only one
Who comforts me
Who sets me free
 
I will lift my hands in praise to you
I will lift my voice to worship you
Lifted high
I magnify your name
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

I Surrender to You



All of my sin I will leave in the past
Then I will walk in freedom at last
The enemies shadow will no longer cast
Because I surrender to you
 
All of my pain I will lay at your feet
The stripes on your back brought my healing indeed
I will no longer walk in defeat
Because I surrender to you
 
CHORUS
I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender to you
My victory comes when I surrender to you
I don’t have to fight the battle with sin
Because you have already won
 
All of my heartache I humbly forgive
I don’t need to hold on to hurts I’ve received
My heart will rejoice as I let them retreat
Because I surrender to you
 
CHORUS

BRIDGE
All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
Take my life Lord from this moment
In your love I’ll always live
 
CHORUS

Be Glorified

Be Glorified, Lord of all the Heavens
Be Glorified, Lord of all the earth
Be Glorified, You alone are worthy of my praise

Be Magnified, Lord of all the Heavens
Be Magnified, Lord of all the earth
Be Magnified, You alone are worthy of my praise

I will lift my hands toward heaven, I will worship you alone
I will bow my head in reverence at your throne
I will lift my voice in praises to the Lord of all the earth
Who can ever comprehend your awesome worth
