The River of Grace

I stood by the banks of the river
The river of God’s great grace
It flowed from His throne in heaven
Right down to the human race

All were invited to enter
This stream of His endless love
His grace was poured out to us all
When He gave His only Son

What an act of mercy
What an act of love
What a mighty God we serve
Who loves us all so much
He created us to praise Him
And to walk with Him each day
I love to stand amid the flow
In the river of His grace

So many souls are searching
For something more in life
They’ve tried all kinds of different ways
But are not satisfied

If only they would realize
This awesome truth I share
There is a God in heaven
That longs to bring them care

A simple prayer is all it takes
To enter His embrace
Just ask Him for forgiveness
And step into His grace

Jesus, mighty Savior
My sins I now confess
Forgive me, please, I ask today
Come take away this mess
I promise I will turn away
From sin that rules my life
I’ll make you Lord of all my heart
Until the day I die

What an act of mercy
What an act of love
What a mighty God we serve
Who loves us all so much
He created us to praise Him
And to walk with Him each day
I welcome you to stand with me
In the river of His grace

My Mission 

I looked out to the world

To see what there would be

And everwhere I looked

I saw pain and misery

There was no understanding

Compassion seemed misplaced

People were elusive 

They would lie right to my face

Then I looked to God

To see what I would see

His mercy and His grace

Did flow abundantly 

I saw it streaming to me 

Like rays shine from the sun

The blessings that they brought me

Did lift my heart in song 

I asked the Lord to show me

How this blessing could reach out 

To those who only saw the world 

Missing out on God above

He told me that’s my mission 

My calling from above

To share with everyone I know

The message of His love

I must admit I’ve faltered

At this task He’s given me

From this day forth I promise

This mission will drive me

Crazy Love

You came down from heaven a little babe
Gave up your glory for man to save
Poured out your mercy and your grace
All the way to the grave

You preached three years to people in need
Did many miracles many good deeds
You made enemies of the Pharisees
Just so you could die for me

How crazy is your love Lord your love for me
It reaches to the mountains and across the sea
You tell me you will love me for eternity
How crazy is your love for me

You let them take you freely on that dreadful night
Were beaten, scourged and bloodied what an awful sight
They nailed you to a cross, the day turned into night
You died that day to give me life

Your love is so amazing
Your love is so divine
Your love surpasses all things
Your love will always shine
Your love reached down from heaven
To Calvary that day
How crazy is your love for me

How crazy is your love Lord your love for me
It reaches to the mountains and across the sea
You tell me you will love me for eternity
How crazy is your love for me

I Love God and He Loves Me

I love God.  He loves me
What a blessed life I lead
New each day is His mercy
I love God and He loves me.

I love God and keep His word
Knowing I must tell the world
Of this love that never fails
I love God and He loves me

He loves me His promise clear
He has promised to be near
And to listen to my prayer
He loves me His promise clear

I love God and do my best
To follow all His commandments
They’ll testify to all the rest
I love God and do my best

He loves me and gives His grace
All my sins He does erase
And one day I shall see His face
He loves me and gives His grace

I love God and trust in Him
No matter what this life may bring
When trials come my heart will sing
I love God and trust in Him

God loves me and lends His hand
Helps me find His loving plan
His spirit helps me understand
God loves me and lends Hs hand

I love God and God loves me
What a blessed life I lead
I pray you will know His peace
I love God and God loves you
