He Watches Over Me

As I lay down and try to sleep 

My eyes well up as tears they weep

I have no doubt my soul He keeps

He watches over me
I try to write the words I hear

Within my heart not through my ear

His words come softly but so clear

He watches over me
I see His face like in a dream 

He is so close He breathes on me

I know He’s there so real it seems

He watches over me 
This reassurance calms my mind

I know His love is surely mine

Now I can sleep sound and sublime

He watches over me 
When I awake in morning time 

To watch the sunrise slowly climb 

I’ll know without a doubt in mind 

He watches over me 

Trusting Jesus Oh How Sweet

It’s so hard to describe it
This peace down in my soul
Whenever trouble comes my way
His peace will take control
There is no doubt or worry
There is no fear or dread
He gives me blessed assurance
That vict’ry is ahead

Once you understand this peace
Then joy is next in line
When all of life seems out of sorts
Abundant joy is mine
He fills my heart with singing
That new song that I love
His joy does overtake me
For I know that He has won

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Peace and joy are settled in
Now hope comes crashing through
I know my troubles are but brief
As blessings are produced
There is no hesitation
To face whatever comes
This hope will help me forge ahead
For He has overcome

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

I’m resting in His mercy
I’m trusting in His grace
No trial can defeat me
His truth I do embrace
His peace is always present
His joy does fill my heart
And hope will bring me through
If from Him I don’t depart

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Watching Over Me

When I am feeling lonely and afraid
When doubt has started creeping through my life
When obstacles distract me
When thoughts and fears attack me
Whenever I can’t seem to sort things out

There’s a calm assurance that comes over me
A peace that passes everything I feel
It slowly overtakes me
The soothing balm awakes me
I sense your holy presence and remember

You are there in heaven
Watching over me
Keeping me protected from all harm
I can trust in you Lord
Even when I fall
You are there to pick me up again
And set me on my way

When I get weighed down by cares of life
When everything I do just comes out wrong
When just the dark surrounds me
When sorrows overwhelm me
Whenever I don’t see a clear way out

There’s a joy that starts to bubble from inside
A joy that doesn’t come from what I feel
It slowly overwhelms me
My heart can then assure me
That even in this place I must remember

You are there in heaven
Watching over me
Keeping me protected from all harm
I can trust in you Lord
Even when I fall
You are there to pick me up again
And set me on my way

In my darkest hours you are right beside me
In my hardest days you never leave my side
In my weakest moments I place my trust in you Lord
You wont let me fall
You won’t let me fail

You are there in heaven
Watching over me
Keeping me protected from all harm
I can trust in you Lord
Even when I fall
You are there to pick me up again
And set me on my way

His Love Will Always Come Through

I sing of the mercy and the grace of Jesus
How He gives them freely and changes my life
My provider my protector my refuge and fortress
My shelter in storm and in darkness my light

I sing of His peace and His joy overflowing
How He gives me hope that fills up my soul
He calms all my doubts and takes worry away
His plan for my future will be evermore

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

I sing of the Spirit He gives me abundant
The Comforter sweet that’s always beside
He teaches me truth and leads me through trouble
In times of decision He is my guide

I can depend on all of these things
No matter what my come or go
His great faithfulness will be my comfort
Everywhere I go

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

All The Day Long

Gently laying on my bed
Pillow nestling weary head
By His hand He wisely led
All the day long

Closing tired eyes to sleep
Falling into night so deep
Knowing He my soul did keep
All the day long

Sun awakens as I rise
Looking to the eastern skies
He will brighten waking eyes
All the day long

Hours are filled with things to do
Giving joy to me and you
He has plans forever new
All the day long

Constantly amazed by grace
Looking for His loving face
Lifting up my voice in praise
All the day long

What a Savior what a King
Walks with me through everything
He deserves the praise I sing
All the day long

Time has swiftly passed away
Night has overtaken day
He has been my Rock and stay
All the day long

I Will Not Deny

I will not deny His mercy

That touches me each day
I will not deny His grace
That raises up my faith

I will not deny His Healing
That’s keeping me alive
I will not deny His strength
That helps me to survive

There can be no mistaking His love
And the things He has done for me
I will lift up my praise
To His glorious name
And testify to all I see

I will not deny His sacrifice
The nails He took for me
The suffering and bleeding 
He endured on Calvary

I will not deny they buried Him
And sealed the borrowed tomb
I will not deny He rose again
One day He will take me home

One day will come
When evil will rise
And demand my allegiance to him
When that day comes
And my life is required
I will never deny 
I will never deny

There can be no mistaking His love
And the things He has done for me
I will lift up my praise
To His glorious name
And testify to all I see

The Plan

I can assure you
That God has a plan for you
Which will be better than yours
I know for certain
That His way is destined
To wipe away all of your tears

When you give in
And respond to His calling
He’ll guide you each step of the way
And when it gets hard
He’ll send in His mercy
To make your life better each day

Just like a watchmaker He has a plan
It has been designed just for you
He knows He design
He knows when it’s time
To work out His plan in you

When you seem to be broke
And you’re wondering why
Just put them in His loving hands
Don’t worry or fret
He knows what to do
To put you together again

A watchmaker knows how to fix His designs
He knows all the parts and their place
The watch’s design is no puzzle to him
His knows all about every piece

God’s your designer and He knows your life
He knows what the future will bring
Your trials are never a problem for Him
He knows how to lead you through things

Just like a watchmaker He has a plan
It has been designed just for you
He knows He design
He knows when it’s time
To work out His plan in you

In The Midst

I’m tired of being tired
I’m sick of being sick
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song
But while I sit here waiting
For good health to return
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song

You wonder why I praise Him
When things are not so right
When He allowed this sickness in my life
The answer is so simple
It’s not hard to understand
When you think of all He’s done for me through time

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Now even when I suffer
When my life seems out of place
I do not forget what he has done for me
In the midst of any trial
I can raise my voice and sing
Hallelujah to my soon and coming King

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His grace will cover all my foolishness
His mercy never fails me
His peace is inn my heart
His joy unspeakable flows endlessly

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life
