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

Soon and Very Soon

I can tell by the faint
Dim Light
Giving shape to the trees
And buildings far off
It increases
Slow but sure
I see the slight tint
On the dark gray clouds
Above the horizon

Soon and very soon

I can tell as the rays
Hit the bottom
Of the clouds
They start to light up
First a dull yellow
Growing slowly
In it’s glory
To a brilliant gold
Gilding the formerly gray
Obscure shapes

Soon and very soon

Those rays hit another cloud
Then another
Pink
Orange
Red
Purple
Colors appear across the sky
Extending further
And further
Lighting the sky
Thrilling the eye

Soon and very soon

The sun will peak it’s face
Over the horizon
The show will be over here
To be shown elsewhere
Further west
And further west
Throughout eternity

Jesus Life

Unexplainable

Sometimes I can explain and other times I can’t
The science of this world is not enough
It can only go so far
To explain the sun and stars
But just cannot explain my Father’s love

They say it was a big bang that started everything
And all creation came from not a thing
But then they say that something
Cannot come from nothing
It seems they just can’t grasp a lot of things

Perhaps it was a big bang that began the world we know
It happened in the blink of an eye
The Father spoke the Word
Let there be Light was heard
And all the universe came into sight

But to explain a Father that would give His only Son
To die a painful death upon a tree
To save a sinful soul
To come and make us whole
I can’t explain His ardent love for me

So when you talk of science and logical response
Just remember that He died to give you life
It just does not make sense
For God to recompense
This kind of love for one’s who cause Him strife

We all were sinners lost with no hope for future life
Hell and it’s torture was our destiny
But God did send His Son
He was the only one
Who could give eternal life to you and me

So today I ask you please to put aside that hardened heart
And accept what Jesus did for you and me
Because science can’t explain
His purpose and His plan
It’s faith that will decide your destiny

Jesus Life

The Light

What an awesome God I serve
He sent His Spirit to survey this world
When it was dark and void of life
His Spirit roamed to find emptiness
Nothing
Darkness
Then he spoke and there was Light
Light that shone without a source
Light that engulfed the whole world
All at once
No more darkness
Anywhere
Day and Night were now entrenched
Never to be changed again
He spoke again and dry land appeared
Above the waters
Separated by the waters
No life yet
Just dry land beside still waters
Land ready to produce
Land ready to be occupied
Then He separated the heavens from the earth
Clouds appeared
Two days had passed
On day three God spoke again
He caused the grass to grow
And the trees to grow
The fruit trees which carried their own seed
He looked out up all He had done
And said It is Good
On the fourth day
He spoke again
Let there be lights in the sky
The Sun by day
The moon by night
Let stars shine in the heavens
Placed one by one
And it was so
These lights did not replace the first Light
Which now shines in our hearts
On our sin
To show us God’s way
His path
The first Light was the Word of God
And the Word became flesh
And dwelt among us
He taught us
Showed us the Father
That we might believe
Then He was taken
Beaten
Scourged
Accused falsely
Condemned to die
On a cross
Crucified
A crown of thorns on His head
Spit on
Mocked
Made to carry His cross
Nails through His feet and hands
Vinegar to drink
And darkness covered the earth
During the middle of the day
The Light was hanging on a tree
The unblemished Lamb of God
Sacrificed for all my sins
Took my place
And died for me
Placed in a borrowed tomb
Wrapped in a linen cloth
Stone placed at the entrance
Sealed by the rulers
Guards put in place
No escape
But nothing could hold the Light
On the third day He came forth
Once again to shine the Light
The Light that was from the beginning
The Light that will never die
Heaven and earth will pass away
But His Word
His Light
Will remain forever and ever
What an awesome God I serve

All Creation Testifies

I sing glory to your name
Glory to your name
Glory to your name oh Lord

I sing holy is your name
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

I sing worthy is your name
Worthy is your name
Worthy is your name oh Lord

I sing Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name
Jesus is your name oh Lord

All creation testifies of your majesty
All of nature shouts your praise everyday
I will lift up my voice
And my heart will rejoice
As my praises fill the air

 

My Conclusion

When I think of the fact that water and ice
Are made from two gases that meet and splice
I can’t help but wonder how they first met
And decided their union would be complex

When I think of how stars form a pattern in space
As the wander around from place to place
I can’t help but wonder how it came to be
That they would give guidance to sailors at sea

So many questions have flooded my mind
Of incredible things that have happened through time
I have made the conclusion that satisfies me
There’s a God up in heaven who makes this all be

Our God in heaven sent us His own Son
He died on a cross to redeem everyone
The curse of sin broken by His sacrifice
Death is defeated by eternal life.

Do you live with this incredible gift
Have you accepted what only God gives
Ask Him today to forgive your sins
Then He will pardon and live within
