Let it Rain

I am tired
I am worn
I am weak
I am torn
Holy Spirit
Come and fill my cup today

I am empty
I am dry
I am running
Out of time
Holy Spirit
Come and quench this thirst of mine

Let it rain
Let It rain
Let the Holy Ghost rain down on me
Let it rain
Let it rain
Let the Holy Ghost rain down on me

I an hear a distant thunder
Drawing closer
Sounding louder
I can smell the rain approaching
Rain on me
Rain on me

Let it rain
Let It rain
Let the Holy Ghost rain down on me
Let it rain
Let it rain
Let the Holy Ghost rain down on me

His Child Forever

I have come a long way in my life
Yet I still have a long way to go
I’m learning His ways
There’s more every day
That He has to walk me through

When I started I knew very little
Just what I had learned in my youth
I made Him my Lord
Which brought a reward
He started to teach me the truth

His mercy is divine
His grace is amazing
His love overwhelms me
Jesus my Lord
His peace fills my spirit
His joy lifts my sorrows
His hope lasts forever
Jesus my Lord

Even when I start to wander
He never gives up on me
He calls out my name
He holds me again
His child forever I’ll be

And in the darkest days He’s there
Calming every storm
Leading me to safety when I’m scared
There’s a lesson to be learned
In every trial of life
Just ask the Lord to show you the way

His mercy is divine
His grace is amazing
His love overwhelms me
Jesus my Lord
His peace fills my spirit
His joy lifts my sorrows
His hope lasts forever
Jesus my Lord

All the glory to you
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
All the glory to you

The Great Escape

I was floundering through life
Delirious at times
By night so many drinks
By day smoke dulled my mind
I thought that life was grand
Because my mind was dulled
I really was in trouble
Enslaved by what I loved

But then I found the Savior
My great deliverer
He came in like a squadron
Defeating all my fear
I found myself with new desires
My mind was thinking straight
His love had filled my heart
Before it was too late

Jesus, Mighty Jesus
Authority is His
Power and dominion
Is always His to give
When He came into my life
He taught me how to live
He provided me a great escape

Escape from all my fears
Escape from all my doubts
Escape from all my sorrows
Escape from satan’s shouts
Escape from sins dead snare
Escape from words of hate
Escape from thoughts of lust
Escape from dumb debates
He broke all of my chains
I now am walking free
He opened prison doors
He brought me victory

Now I can trust in Him
My mind is in His word
His Spirit speaks to me
His peace is my reward
There’s no misunderstanding
Of who is in control
I’m putty in His hands
A sheep within His fold

Jesus, Mighty Jesus
Authority is His
Power and dominion
Is always His to give
When He came into my life
He taught me how to live
He provided me the great escape

 

He Came Back For Me

As a child I grew up in church so many years ago
As a teen I turned my back on God and wandered
In my early twenties I had truly lost my way
My life was heading down a lonely path

My mind had become mixed up from the things that I was taking
My body was a scrawny, hippie mess
Most people thought that I was destined to be left behind
Then suddenly my life was turned around

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
Abd that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

Over forty years ago this all happened in my life
I have never turned my back on Him again
And I know if you have walked away and found you’re lost
That He’ll come back for you just the same

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

He doesn’t ask us where we’ve been
He doesn’t ask us what we did
He doesn’t ask us why we left
He doesn’t ask us why we hid
He tells us that He loves us
He wraps His arms around us
He asks us to be His
And I chose to be His because

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

This poem/song was inspired by Rev. Robert Newton speaking to an APEPT convention 5 years ago. I was prompted to watch the message today on YouTube. Here is the link

It Matters Not

It matters not what I’m going through
Or what the day may bring
The Lord deserves my praise this day
So, I will gladly sing.

I’ll sing of His great mercy
I’ll sing of His great love
I’ll sing of His amazing grace
He lights the star’s above

He gives me joy abundant
And peace within my soul
Never does a day go by
He makes my spirit whole

I’ll shout His praise from the rooftops
I’ll lift my voice and sing
Eternal Hallelujahs
To the King of Kings

I Know A God

I know a God who cares for me
Through the dark and windy storm
I know a God who comforts me
When my days are far from calm
I know a God who carries me
When all my strength is gone
I know a God who stays with me
When I am all alone

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

I know a God who took my place
And took away my sin
I know a God who gives me grace
And gives me peace within
I know a God who rose from death
So I could live with Him
I know a God who rules above
He is the King of Kings

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

This God that I serve is merciful
This God that I serve is gracious
This God that I serve forgives me
This God that I serve delivers me
This God that I serve protects me
This God that I serve provides for me
This God that I serve is everything
That I could ever need

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

Your Grace Abounds

Through deepest valleys and darkest days
Through all my trials and through my pain
Through every storm and all my fears
Your grace abounds to me

Through days of sorrow and sleepless nights
Through shattered hopes and tears of plight
Through times alone when my peace is gone
Your grace abounds to me

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there
Your grace abounds to me

Through every heartache and every tear
Through every putdown that I might hear
Through deep depression when I am down
Your grace abounds to me

And when my trials seem more than I can bear
I know your grace will always find me here
If I just keep a watchful eye
You’ll satisfy every time

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there
Your grace abounds to me

Two Things

There’s only two things you must know
To be all you can be
Thing one is His great mercy
Thing two is grace that’s free

Mercy reached out to touch our lives
When Jesus came from above
Took the form of a baby
Because of His great love

Mercy was with Him every day
As He healed all that would come
Taught the ways of the Kingdom
Truly was God’s Son

Mercy then took Him to the cross
Where He bled and died for me
Mercy rose Him up from the grave
So I’d live eternally

The greatest show of mercy
The world has ever seen
Is something I must know deep down
Because it was done for me

Grace has supplied my every need
From the moment I was born
From the fresh air that I breath each day
To the sunrise every morn

Grace followed us as we grew in years
For it truly gave us life
Each trial that we faced has passed
And grace helped us survive

Grace gave the greatest gift of all
When we asked the Savior in
By grace are you saved through faith my friend
It is grace that makes you win

This grace that’s so amazing
Grace always blesses me
He gives it freely to us
Supplying ever need

When you are looking out ahead
At what your life may bring
Make sure that grace and mercy
Are the most important things

Priceless Love

I’m turning my life over to the one that I adore
His name is Jesus Christ and He’s the Lord of Lord’s
He died to heal my body and take away my sin
Then He rose up from the grave and now He lives within

I’ve tried to live my own way and made a mess of things
My own decisions always leave my soul without blessing
My wisdom just gets me into a prideful state of mind
And the knowledge that I have puts my spirit in a bind

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love

When I begin to trust in Him my life seems to make sense
Even though my troubles sometimes get much more intense
He’s with me through each trial and He shows me the way
Because He cares for me and guides me through each blessed day

His blessings follow me around and seem to never cease
His mercy comes to flood my soul and leave my mind at peace
His grace is overwhelming as He clears up my mistakes
Then He leaves His joy within me love,Jesusso that others might partake

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love

Stooping down from His throne
He hears my every plea
Because He is my Savior
Who bled and died for me

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love
