Emmanuel Has Come

 Emmanuel has come to the city
 Emmanuel has come to the town
 Emmanuel has come to the nation
 Praise the Lord.  Emmanuel has come
  
 Emmanuel has come to your children

 Emmanuel has come to save us from our sin
 Praise the Lord.   Emmanuel has come
  
 Hallelujah He brings honor and glory
 Hallelujah He brings mercy and grace
 Hallelujah He brings joy and everlasting life
 Praise the Lord. Emmanuel has come
  
 Honor and glory.  Sing His praises
 Power and Majesty to Him
 Worship forever the King of all Kings
 Praise the Lord.  Emmanuel has come
 Praise the Lord.  Emmanuel has come
 Praise the Lord.  Emmanuel has come 

Lord Forever

There’s something inside me that wants to sing His praise
There’s something inside me that loves His saving grace
There’s something inside me that must get out
There’s something inside me that wants to shout
There’s something inside me that wants to lift His name
 
Jesus,  my redeemer
Savior Lord forever
Hear my praise lifted high, lifted high
Glory to the Father
Glory to the Son
Glory to the Holy Ghost
All in one
 
There’s something inside me that wants to be a friend
There’s something inside me that needs to lend a hand
There’s something inside me that must declare
The love that’s available through His death
There’s something inside me to help you understand
 
He is Lord, He is Savior, He is healer, Lord forever
He is mighty, He is holy, He is with us, Lord forever
 
Jesus,  my redeemer
Savior Lord forever
Hear my praise lifted high, lifted high
Glory to the Father
Glory to the Son
Glory to the Holy Ghost
All in one
 
 

Unexpected

What an unexpected journey the Lord has brought me on
As I look back I can see that my journey has been long
At the same time I am thinking it has only just begun
For I know He has a plan for my life
 
I was lost in deadly sin and was in the darkest place
Had no thought of getting out or having sin erased
But God had another plan to show me amazing grace
My plan was going to die a welcome death
 
I travelled to a friend who brought me to His church
The preaching went right through me and I suddenly was urged
To raise my hand for Jesus but my body would not lurch
I sat there in that pew needing help
 
Later on that week the pastor came a calling
Asked me if I wanted to ask Jesus to come in
I prayed that prayer and Jesus washed away my sin
God’s plan was just beginning in my life
 
Two years pater I went back to visit that same friend
But the Lord I a plan bigger than I could pretend
While there I met a girl who my lonely heart did mend
God’ plan for us to wed had begun
 
I could go on and on for a hundred verses here
But I think you get the picture why I hold Jesus dear
Neither time did I ask Him where His plan would steer
His plan finds me right where I am
 
So now I’m swerving Him with all my heart and soul
I am not really sure where He wants me to go
But He will get me there and this truth I do know
I am ready, willing and able to do what He asks me to do
 
You see we do not know when a change will come about
All we have to do is praise Him with a shout
Serve Him where you are and soon you will find out
His plan will happen unexpectedly

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

Praise and Worship

His Mercy Lasts Forever

I shudder just to think
What will happen in a blink
To the lost when Jesus comes back in the clouds
The saved will rise away
And beginning on that day
The wrath of God will pour out on this ground

The lost who all denied
The Lord would test their lives
Will face such horrors we cannot contain
But even in those days
The Lord will show His grace
And some will still be saved from all that pain

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day

Don’t take your chance that day
Come to the Lord to stay
Take Him today to be your Lord and King
He’ll take you out of here
On that day that He appears
And you won’t have to face those nasty things

He warned you in His Word He’s coming back
He warned you in His Word to not be slack
Believe the Word of God
In a blink you’ll see reward
His Word is very clear in white and black

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day

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

Our Salvation

The Reaches of Your Grace

In the morning skies
In the clouds that rise
In the stars at night
In the bright sunlight
In the morning dew
In the flowers hue
In the world around
I see you

All creation is your masterpiece
Declaring who you are
Precious Lord make all aware
Of your mercy and your love

In the rain drops splash
In the winds that lash
In the birds that sing
In the eagle’s wings
In the brook that flows
In the corn that grows
In the world around
I hear you

All creation shows your majesty
Help us all to be amazed
At the wonder of your love for us
And the reaches of your grace

Praise and Worship

Living in the Lord

I used to run and hide when the devil came at me
He seemed so big and strong and His countenance was mean
But now I stand and say Satan get behind me
I know who I am I’m a child of the King

I used to fear and tremble when trials came my way
I thought they’d overwhelm me and carry me away
But now I stand and say I will take the trial today
I know that these troubles will only build my faith

Living in the Lord is so rewarding
Living in the vine gives life to me
I’ll never leave His side
In me His word abides
No longer will I fear the enemy

I used to be a child that would lose his joy and peace
Whenever I was troubled by my worldly enemies
But now I stand and say that my soul will stay at ease
I know the Holy Spirit will always be with me

No longer will I doubt
No longer will I fear
No longer will I run
No longer shed a tear
No longer will the enemy
Have a grip on me
I’ll call the name of Jesus
To repel the enemy

Living in the Lord is so rewarding
Living in the vine gives life to me
I’ll never leave His side
In me His word abides
No longer will I fear the enemy

 

Born again

The Choice

The day is coming soon my friend for Jesus to appear
I pray that you are ready for the time is very near
Today you have a choice to make that will affect your days
Once this life is all over and eternity awaits

If you do not accept the Lord and what He did for you
When He died on the cross and saved your soul so long ago
Then you will meet a fiery lake where worms and moth corrupt
Your thirst will never cease and your soul will cry enough

But days will never end and the torment will increase
The fury of our enemy on you will be unleashed
His dark domain is full of hate and evil all the time
Your soul will wallow in that pain until the end of time

But if you’ve asked the Lord of Lords to come into your heart
And if you’ve made the choice to let Him give you a new start
You are a new creation and the old many passed away
You will go straight to heaven when He returns that day

The pearly gates await you and you’ll walk on streets of gold
There will be no pain or tears or sorrows that you’’ll hold
We’ll see all of our friends who have made Jesus their choice
We all will be rejoicing with one heart and voice

Please make today the day that you make Jesus Lord
Ask Him to forgive your sins and save your sinful soul
Bow before His throne and honor Him as King of Kings
Then He will give you heaven and your heart will gladly sing

Holy holy are you Lord you are my souls delight
Power strength and glory be to you who sits on high
Hosanna in the highest you’re the Lamb upon the throne
Forever I will sing my praise to Jesus Christ my Lord
