I Need You Lord

I need you Lord
In my trials
In my sorrow
In my weakness
In tomorrow
In my heartache
When my faith goes
I need you Lord

Not a week
Not a day
Not an hour
Not a minute
Not a second
Not a blink
That I don’t need you Lord

Come to me Lord
I seek your face
Come to me Lord
I need your grace
Come to me Lord
I’ll give you praise
Oh how I need you Lord

Holy Spirit Thank You

I can feel your presence
Deep inside of me
Leading me to know
What I’m made to be

I can feel your presence
Filling up my heart
Causing me to change
Make a brand new start

Holy Spirit thank you
For your love and grace
Thank you for your mercy
I worship in this place

Let me know your wisdom
Calm me with your peace
I’m forever grateful
You live inside of me

Christmas Poetry

He Waits For Me

He waits for me
In the silence of the morning
As the sun is slowly rising
The gilded clouds are shining
The birds are loudly singing
The dark quickly dispelling
The dew is gently falling
As all the earth is waking
He waits for me

He waits for me
As life just gets to busy
My faith starts to get lazy
My doubt is rising slowly
The fear of failure lures me
The troubles loom around me
I’m not all I should be
I ifeel as if He’d left me
He waits for me

Silently
Quietly
Lovingly
Gracefully
He waits for me
Full of hope I’ll find my way
Full or mercy for me day
Love that drives all fear away
He waits for me

Slowly I begin to rise
Lift my praise up to the skies
Loft my head and set
my eyes
Upon Him waiting there

Then His peace comes over me
Peace that calms my raging seas
Back where I have longed to be
Beside my Lord and King

I know in your darkest hour
His love draws you by gracious power
I pray that you will find this true
He’s waiting there for you

Everywhere

I can see Him
in the brilliance of the sunrise
in the gilded skies at dawn
in the colors of the rainbow
in the evenings glorious yawn
I can see Him in the stars above
I can see Him in the bird that fly
I can see Him in the leaves that fall
I can see Him everywhere

I can feel Him
in the gentle breeze of spring bring
in the stream that gently flows
in the warmth of summer sun
in the cold of winter snow
I can feel Him in the rain that falls
I can feel Him in the birds that fly
I can feel Him in the still and calm
I can feel Him everywhere

I can hear Him
in the thunder from the storm
in the cooing of a dove
in the howl of the Wolf
in the stillness of His love
I can hear Him when I still myself
I can hear Him when I’m restless
I can hear Him in my sorrow that
I can hear Him everywhere

I can touch Him
in the questions of my prayers
n the times I speak His name
in the showers of His grace
in the words uttered in faith
I can touch Him every moment
I can touch Him in my troubles
I can touch Him when I’m lonely
I can touch Him anytime

I can feel His presence everywhere
He’s given me these senses so I could know He’s there
I use them every day
To guide me on my way
Let my mouth declare
My eyes behold
My ears be witness
My Spirit touch
The Glory of the Lord
It’s everywhere

I Love the Light

I love the light that shines on me
It helps my eyes to plainly see
God’s creation given to me
I love the light that shines on me

I love the light that shines in me
Revealing things that hinder me
Dispelling dark and setting free
I love the light that shines in me

I love the light that shines through me
Showing the way so others see
The love of God can set them free
I love the light that shines through me

Is God’s great light alive in you
Does His abiding love shine through
Give Him your all and His will do
Make sure His light shines bright in you

Praise & Worship

I Can

I can hear Him
Gently speaking
In a whisper
Above the noise of this world
Kind words
Gentle words
Words of life and hope
Words that lift me out of darkness
Into light
I can hear Him

I can see Him
Shining brightly
Everywhere
In all of His creation
The stars
And the birds
Testify of His presence
His presence that is always near me
Without question
I can see Him

I can feel Him
Flowing softly
Through my being
Letting me know He is near
Holding me
Helping me
Walking close beside me
Carrying me when I fall down
He is there
I can feel Him

Oh God of wonder
How precious you are
How wonderful your ways
You fill my days
With your great grace
Your mercy runs
When I am down and out
You always pull me through
And then I know
No matter what comes
With you right here
I can

You Are There

When I fall or stumble
You are there
When I fear or tremble
You are there
When I’m weak and weary
You are there
When my day is dreary
You are there
In my darkest storms
You are there
When my faith is worn
You are there
When I see no light
You are there
When I cannot fight
You are there
When I’m down and out
You are there
When I’m filled with doubt
You are there
When I lose my way
You are there
When I sit and pray
You are there
When I start to rise
You are there
When I open my eyes
You are there
When my joy returns
You are there
When my passion burns
You are there
When my peace abounds
You are there
When your grace surrounds
You are there
When I’m lifted up
You are there
I know you’re enough
Because you are there.

You Surround Me

When I am weary
When I have doubts
When all my dreams have gone wrong
When I am lonely
When fear abounds
When all my strength is just gone

Lord you surround me
With all of your grace and mercy
Lord you surround me
With love and hope that abounds
Lord you surround me
I feel your presence within me
Lord you surround me
Your Spirit flows in my soul

When I am tested
When life gets hard
When all my worries come true

Lord you surround me
With all of your grace and mercy
Lord you surround me
With love and hope that abounds
Lord you surround me
I feel your presence within me
Lord you surround me
Your Spirit flows in my soul

And I will lift my hands in praise
I will worship you all my days
I will magnify your holy name
Jesus my Lord
Jesus my Lord

Lord you surround me
With all of your grace and mercy
Lord you surround me
With love and hope that abounds
Lord you surround me
I feel your presence within me
Lord you surround me
Your Spirit flows in my soul

Stay With Me Jesus

Stay with me Jesus
Please stay with me
I need to know
By my side you will be

Life throws me curves
And oft gets me down
Stay with me Jesus
So I do not drown

Keep me in your arms
Day after day
Stay with me Jesus
As I seek your way

When in distress
I will call on your name
Stay with me Jesus
Teach me to pray

Please never leave me
Alone in my life
Stay with me Jesus
You make things alright

You make me to lie down
In pastures so green
You lead me beside
Still waters serene

I know I am safe
When you are with me
So stay with me Jesus
Please stay with me

The Lord is With Me

The Lord is with me
Wherever I go
He is before me and behind me
He is to my right and to my left
He is above me and He guides my steps
If I should turn
He turns with me
And guides me back on the path
If I should stumble
He steadies my feet
And gently holds me up
Even if I fall
He is there to pick me up
And set me on my feet again
And if I tire
He is there to carry me

The Lord is with me
He knows my every thought
Whether good or bad
His Holy Spirit helps me see
When I have not thought right
He guides me to the truth
His wisdom comes from above
He helps me understand
Where I went wrong
Then He gives me His word
Which transforms my mind
So that I might speak with grace
To build up those around me
I listen for His voice
To tell me the words to say
Day in and day out

The Lord is with me
He knows my every deed
He knows when I do good
He knows when I do wrong
He forgives me when I mess up
Then he shows me the right way
The way to ask forgiveness
Of those I may have wronged
He keeps me from being offended
Then I ask forgiveness
When I have wronged others
He shows me the needy
So that I might help them
He shows me the sick
So that I may lay hands on them
Then He will heal them

The Lord is with me
Thus I will praise Him
I will lift my voice
I will raise my hands
I will look for His face
I will sing Hallelujah
Hosanna in the highest
Honor glory and power
To the Lamb upon the throne
Holy is He
High and lifted up
Worthy of my praise
Worthy of all honor
Forevermore
I will praise Him
For the Lord is with me
