Forever Love

He loves us always
Yes it is true
Forever His love
Abides with you

Through sunshine and rain
His love abides
Through sorrow and pain
His love does not hide

When difficult times
Come in like a flood
His love will be there
Always enough

When i feel defeated
When my hope is gone
His love will hold me
And bring me along

When heartache has touched me
When life disappoints
His love will uplift me
His spirit anoints

There’s no situation
His love will not win
Forever His love
Is settled within

Sweet Mercy Flows (New song and video)

I received this song as a tune this morning and was then given the words. I felt an urgency to record it right away and post it today. This rarely happens, so I feel from the Holy Spirit that someone really needs this today. I pray you will be blessed by this rough recording. May the words minister grace unto the hearers! (Words follow the video)

 

When I speak of His mercy I speak of His love
Gentle and peaceful flood from above
Multiplied blessings more than enough
When I speak of His mercy I speak of His love

When I live in His mercy I live in His peace
No fear of tomorrow my life us at ease
All of my days the enemy fleas
When I speak of His mercy I speak of His peace

Sweet mercy flow through me
Sweet mercy flow through me
Help me to show
So others will know
Your mercy abounds in me

When I cry for His mercy I rest in His grace
His arms wrap around me I see His dear face
I will stay in His presence here in this place
When I cry for His mercy I rest in His grace

All my life is found in His loving arms
Help me always be down on my knees
Reaching out in love to my God above
Let His mercy flow so all will know

Sweet mercy flow through me
Sweet mercy flow through me
Help me to show
So others will know
Your mercy abounds in me

Hold Onto Jesus

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

My life was tangled and tortured
The sin stains were all in display
I had quite a collection of terrible things
Seems I never could find the right way

I was destined for doom and misfortune
My path seemed to be laid out
In a stupor I headed to church one day
To see what the fuss was about

When I walked in the door they were singing
Their voices were filled with great joy
I sat in the back wondering what to do next
As my head split in two from the noise

When singing was finished the preacher got up
He shouted out Praise the Lord
Then He said is there one who does not know the way
It’s time for you now to come forward

I don’t know what compelled me to rise to my feet
I slowly walked up to the front
The tears started flowing as prayers were uplifted
The pastor then gave me a hug

As he stood there with arms wrapped around me
He said Jesus Loves you my son
Confess all your sins
Give your life up to Him
You’ll never regret when it’s done

I closed my eyes
I bowed my head
I prayed that prayer
My heart leapt from my chest
The peace that came in
And the joy that I felt
I knew something changed
Inside I could tell
I raised up my arms and began to rejoice
Thank you sweet Jesus for saving my soul
The people all lifted their voice in sweet praise
I knew that my life had drastically changed

As I left that old church later on in the day
I made up my mind to not turn away
I’d hold onto new life the old was now gone
I’d hold onto Jesus and sing this new song

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

Settled in His Grace

VMy days can get so lonely
When I try to walk alone
But there’s no reason this should be the case
He promised to be with me
Until the very end
I’ll daily set my eyes to see His face

He’s with me in my spirit
I must listen carefully
His voice is calling out most every day
He wants a conversation
He wants my company
He wants to walk with me and guide my way

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

The sweet sweet love of Jesus
Is always there for me
In good times and in bad He’s always near
By faith I feel His presence
My spirit knows His breath
When I remember this I’ll never fear

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

Knowing Him
Loving Him
Praising Him
Hearing Him
All I need
He provides
Ever present
In my life

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

Sweet Victory

We were not born for heartache
We were not born for pain
We were not born for suffering
We were not born for shame

We were not born for trials
We were not born for doom
We were not born for sorrow
We were born to overcome

Through all our disappointments
Through all of life’s hard tests
There’s someone walking with us
Who always wants our best

Jesus is our Champion
Our mighty victor strong
When He lives within us
We sing His victory song

I’m an overcomer
Through Jesus precious blood
No matter what I’m facing
His mercy is enough

He’ll walk me through the valleys
He’ll guide me day and night
When life is at its darkest
He’ll lead me to the light

I was born for victory
I was born to win
I was born to overcome
This flesh that lives within

I was born for Jesus
As He was born for me
From now on I will walk
In His sweet victory.

Every Time I Praise You

Every time I praise you
Every time I worship
Every time I lift my hands to you
I can feel your presence
Welling up inside me
I just want to lift my song to you

A song of your great mercy
A song of your great love
A song of joy unspeakable and full
A song of grace and passion
A song of peace sublime
A song of Hallelujah
Praise the Lord

Words of Love

His name will move all my mountains
His name will heal all my pain
His name will bring strength and courage
His name gives me joy again

His name is my rock and refuge
His name is my fortress strong
His name always brings me mercy
His name fills my soul with songs

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

His name has removed my sin stains
His name has forgiven me
His name rose to gain the victory
His name spoken sets me free

Oh the mighty name of Jesus
Jesus, Jesus Lord of life
I will sing the name if Jesus
All the day and all the night

To worship Him is what I long for
My heart cries to give Him praise
Hands uplifted toward the throne room
Words of love for Jesus name

Lamb of God

Lamb of God so gentle
A dove would rest on you
A sign of your compassion for us all
Humble meek and lowly
You bowed and were baptized
You are God’s Son in whom He is well pleased

Lamb of God so humble
Ministered to all
Healed the sick and made the blind to see
Fed the multitude
Washed disciples’ feet
Gave your life to save humanity

Lamb of God so mighty
You sit upon the throne
Ten thousand times ten thousand worship you
Cherubim and Seraphim
Join the joyful throng
Holy, holy, holy is your name

Jesus Lamb of God
Sacrifice for all
Gave His life for me
Died upon the cross
Rose again to give
Eternal life to all
Blessed be your name
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God

 

The Painting

The old man didn’t know
If he had one more painting in him
Or what his shaky fingers could do
He had painted many things
Through the years so long ago
That now he could not figure what to choose
Then he looked out of his window
To see a bright sunset
And he knew this was a moment not to lose
He prepared his canvas well
Set his tripod on the hill
And decided to just let his fingers loose

The young man stood there weeping
At the graveside of his father
Who had passed away so swiftly in the night
For years they’d been apart
And just lately Dad had called him
And wanted to make sure he was all right
For the next few weeks they talked and talked
And grew quite close again
And the future started looking very bright
And as he stood there in the twilight
Tears flowed down his face as he fought
The hurt and anger at his plight.

God paints the sunset every day
A million different colors
Changing hue from ray to ray
And the beauty he creates
Cannot be matched by any man
Because every evening sunset
Is a gift that God created
To please the eye of every single man

The old man finished painting
And he laid down his brush
Then he heard a voice he hadn’t heard for years
The voice of God spoke softly
That he should write a note
And place it with the picture he held near
God instructed him to take the picture
To the local store
With the note neatly tucked in to the rear
And give the painting to a man
Who walked into the store with eyes
That had been filled with tears

The young man wandered aimlessly
Through the streets of town
Not knowing what direction he would go
When he happened in the store
Where the owner stood there smiling
The picture in his arms was his to show
And the tears once again
Welled inside the young man’s eyes
As he saw the painting staring out so bold
He could not believe what the painting
Of the sunset right before him
So looked it over once and one time more.

God paints the sunset every day
A million different colors
Changing hue from ray to ray
And the beauty he creates
Cannot be matched by any man
Because every evening sunset
Is a gift that God created
To please the eye of every single man

The young man finally spoke
And asked where this painting had come from
It was a sunset he had seen before
And the owner answered back
He had recently received it
Just 5 days had passed since he was done
The young man saw the sunset
That was there on the day
He last said my goodbye’s to my Dad
He’d been trying to find something
To remember him forever
And now this painting came into life

Now the owner said just wait
This picture is for you
No charge because it’s from the masters hand
And he handed him the note
That was penned upon completion
Of the painting of that sunset days before
As the young man read the note
The tears started flowing
A sob or two came forth amid the joy
And he read aloud in broken voice
The words the note contained
And the shop keeper just bowed his head in thanks

I painted this sunset just for you today
Knowing that your heart was full of pain
As you look upon its beauty
Just remember that I love you
For only God can paint the sunset just for you.

God paints the sunset every day
A million different colors
Changing hue from ray to ray
And the beauty he creates
Cannot be matched by any man
Because every evening sunset
Is a gift that God created
To please the eye of every single man

 

Jesus Sweet Jesus

He’s the love of my life
He’s the Lord of my days
Jesus, sweet Jesus

He’s my sword and my shield
My refuge to stay
Jesus sweet Jesus

My fortress
My deliverer
My stronghold
My healer
My redeemer
My Savior
My Jesus sweet Jesus

No other God is like Him
No one can dare compare
This mighty name above all names
Is worthy of my praise

I’ll lift my hands and lift my voice
I’ll honor Him as I rejoice
He is my Lord I’ve made my choice
Almighty God is He

I’ll sing honor and glory
Unto His name
Jesus sweet Jesus

I’ll sing Hallelujah
In highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus

Hallelujah in highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus
Hallelujah in highest praise
Jesus sweet Jesus
