Open Me

Open me up Lord so others may see
The love that you’ve placed inside of me
Open my heart and mind and soul
That I may show joy to young and old

Open my eyes to see the pain
That others are facing again and again
Open me up Lord to let you shine
The light of the world for all of time

Open me heart Lord to help the lost
To let them known that you paid the cost
Open my mind to understand
What words it will take to reveal your plan

I want to be open to follow your way
I need to be open to your will today
I vow to be open to others in need
I promised to love them in word and deed

Open me. Open me. Open me Lord
Open me up to witness for you
Open me up to touch those for you
Open me up as a light for you
Open me Lord. Open me for you

His Love Reaches

All along the way
He is watching over me
When I’m off the path
He will gently guide me
When I slip and fall
He has mercy on me
His loves reaches everywhere I go

Every single day
He is there to comfort me
When the times are hard
He provides for all my needs
When I call to Him
He will meet me on my knees
His love reaches everywhere I go

His love is endless
His love is boundless
His love is more than I deserve
His love is forever
Reaching out to me
His love is a blessing that preserves

His love keeps me from danger
His loves heals when I am sick
His love comfort in my sorrow
His love stays until tomorrow
His love knows my deepest fears
His love dries my every tear
His love reaches everywhere I go

Don’t fear where life will take you
Don’t fear trials that will come
Don’t fear questions of tomorrow
Don’t fear darkness when alone
Don’t fear any situation
That may come your way today
His love reaches everywhere you go

Mercy and Grace

His Mercy is There

I struggle some days to see
The mercy of God for me
I know He is there
I know that He cares
I just don’t know why He loves me

I know He sees all my faults
He sees the worst parts of me
But He quickly forgives
Then He helps me to live
In the mercy He pours out to me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

I have to open my eyes
To see all the love He provides
It’s more than enough
To fill up my cup
He has an enormous supply

Now I can plainly see
That His mercy is meant for me
I raise up my hands
I thank God for His plans
He always does the best for me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

The Believers Life

What a Wonderful Savior is Jesus

When I look back at all He’s done for me
I can see His grace and His mercy
Then I lift my hands in praise
For His love always
What a wonderful Savior He is

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus
What a wonderful friend to me
No matter where I am
He gives me all he can
What a wonderful Savior is He

When I think of all the blessings He gives me
I can see that I am underserving
Yet He loves me even more
That is why I call Him Lord
What a wonderful Savior He is

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus
What a wonderful friend to me
No matter where I am
He gives me all He can
What a wonderful Savior is He

So I lift my hands in worship
I lift my hands in praise
I sing out hallelujah
Glory to His name
Every breath that I have in me
Every word that my lips speak
Tells the world what a wonder He is

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus
What a wonderful friend to me
No matter where I am
He gives me all he can
What a wonderful Savior is He

 

The Believers Life

At the Time Appointed

Every morning
Day after day
The sun rises slowly
Casting it’s light
Whether cloudy or clear
We see it approaching
The rays stretching far across the horizon
Creeping slowly across the sky
Until the brilliant light
Peaks above the horizon
At the time appointed

Twice a day
Day after day
The tide rushes in
Farther up the sand
Or higher against the rocks
Footprints disappear
Sand castles fall
Reaching its peak it than recedes
Leaving seaweed and shells
And a smooth sand
At the time appointed

The moon travels
Day after day
Across the sky
Various shapes fill our eyes
Crescent moon then half
Half then full
Then back the other way
Affecting oceans by its pull
Causing the tide to rise and fall
The suns light causes the moons shape
Over and over again
At the time appointed

We all will face God
We all will give account
We all will answer for this life
Jesus is the Way
The Truth
The Life
No man comes to the Father but by Him
Have you accepted Him
So that you will be with Him
At the time appointed

It’s His Mercy

People often ask me why I follow Christ
They just don’t seem to understand His benefits in life
I tell them it’s quite simple and easy to receive
Just ask Him for forgiveness and then His Word believe

Once these things have happened your eyes will open wide
You’ll understand that Jesus is right there by your side
Truly you will know that He cares for you each day
One thing will really stand out as you walk along His way

It’s His mercy plain and simple
His mercy came for me
His mercy left a throne above to die upon a tree
His mercy then forgave me
His mercy gave me life
His mercy keeps me everyday
His mercy is my guide

His mercy brings me healing
His mercy frees my soul
His mercy brings such joy and peace
His mercy I will hold
I’ve learned I cannot live without
This mercy that He gives me
His mercy is the source of Life
His mercy covers me

When anybody asks again what Jesus did for you
When they say they just can’t why you worship like you do
Just smile and look at them with your eyes just full of love
And tell them it’s His mercy His mercy is enough

The Believers Life

His Only Son

I never understood the tests
I always tried to do my best
But never found a quiet place to rest

But then the Holy Spirit comes
He places me in Jesus arms
I realize I’m free from any harm

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

I now can safely rest in Him
I have a quiet peace within
I’ll never doubt His wondrous grace again

He’ll always be there by my side
His loving mercy will abide
And I will be forever satisfied

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

His only Son delivered
His only Son has healed me
His only Son took all my pain away
His only Son became my Lord
His only Son whom I adore
His only Son to whom I pray

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free
