Your Great Love

I can’t describe the love you have for me
I can’t describe the mercy that sets me free
Your great love
Is more than enough
To satisfy my wildest dreams

I don’t believe the peace and joy I’ve found
I don’t believe your grace that does abound
Your great love
Is more than enough
To keep my feet on solid ground

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

I wonder when I’ll finally see your face
I wonder when I’ll join the angel’s praise
That great day
Is not far away
I’ll celebrate with hands upraised

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

Every storm that comes
Every trial that looms
Has to flee and run from your great love
Every turn I take
Every day I wake
You are there to guide with your great love

Your great love. Your great love
You call to me with open arms
Your great love is more than enough
To always keep me safe from harm

Limitless Mercy

My days have not always been joyful
His peace has not always been mine
I struggled with sin
Such anger within
I needed a fresh start in life

Then one day I cried out to Jesus
I made Him my Savior and Lord
He showed me His grace
My sin was erased
His mercy became my rewardmercy

His limitless mercy has washed over me
Like stars in the heavens no end do I see
The grace that has pardoned my sin runs so deep
His limitless mercy has washed over me

Now joy bubbles up from my Spirit
His peace always makes my heart glad
His presence is near
I find solace here
The best friend that I’ve ever had

His limitless mercy has washed over me
Like stars in the heavens no end do I see
The grace that has pardoned my sin runs so deep
His limitless mercy has washed over me

The depth of His love
Is always enough
He knows all I need
My prayers He does heed
I’ll walk by His side
In him I’ll abide
His grace is secure
His mercy is pure

His limitless mercy has washed over me
Like stars in the heavens no end do I see
The grace that has pardoned my sin runs so deep
His limitless mercy has washed over me

His Blessings Flow

When it comes to the mercy of my God
I don’t know where to start
He gave His only beloved Son
To purify my heart

When I think of the grace that he bestows
The list grows rather long
Day after day His blessings flow
And to me they belong

And when I think of the patience He and with me
I don’t know where to begin
I was running from Him for oh so long
I’m sure it was running thin

But He loved me then and He loves me know
And He’ll love me forevermore
I can  only lift up my heart and sing
To my precious, wondrous Lord

 

In response to the daily prompt Thin

He’s Always Enough

When I think of His mercy
His wonderful mercy
My heart has to give Him praise to

And when I think of His grace
Amazing grace
I lift up His holy name

When I think of the day
He died for me
I’m awed by His undying love

When I think that He’s with me
Every day
I know that He’s always enough

He’s always enough for me
He meets all my deepest needs
When I was lost
He paid the cost
He’s always enough for me

When I think of this world
And all that it offers
It simply cannot compare

To the blessings He promises
In His word
They come true to me every day

When I think of the heaven
That waits for me
Because He gave His life for me

I’ll keep pressing on
To draw closer to Him
And one day His face I will see

He’s always enough for me
He meets all my deepest needs
When I was lost
He paid the cost
He’s always enough for me

Closer Lord To You

I hear your voice of mercy
As you gently speak my name
There’s a need deep down inside me
That is causing me some pain

I can feel my mind is drifting
Farther from your loving side
Help me Lord to draw in closer
To your arms now open wide

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Everyday I need to call out
To your ever-listening ears
Everyday I need to praise you
Singing out so you will hear

Everyday your word is needed
To restore my heart to you
Everyday I need to bow down
Praying for your grace anew

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Let me hear your voice

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Always Enough

Where do I go when I’m hurting
Deep down I’m lost in despair
I look to Jesus my Savior
I know I’ll find comfort there

Where do I go when I’m restless
Wondering what life will bring
I look to Jesus my Savior
His peace will calm everything

All that I need
I find in Him
All I desire
Will come from Him
He’ll never leave
He’ll always love
Trusting in Him
Is always enough

Where do I go when I’m lonely
Feeling my friends have all gone
I look to Jesus my Savior
He’ll walk with me through the storm

Where do I go when I’m weary
When I just can’t finish the race
I go to Jesus my Savior
He strengthens me by His grace

Then when I finish this journey
When my life on this earth is done
He’ll come along
And carry me home
Through His sweet mercy I’ve won

All that I need
I find in Him
All I desire
Will come from Him
He’ll never leave
He’ll always love
Trusting in Him
Is always enough

Jesus Is Enough

With all this world does offer
To me most everyday
From wealth and fame and fortune
To pleasures when I stray

With all it’s glitch and glamour
That try to pull and tug
The one thing I have found
Is that Jesus is enough

Jesus is enough
His mercy fills me up
His grace pours down each day
His Spirit guides the way
His love is everlasting
His joy exhilarating
His peace does fill my cup
Yes Jesus is enough

I’ve seen the charms of this world
I’ve tasted many times
I though I had a good life
But I was dead inside

I heard about a Savior
Who cares not if I’m rough
Since I gave Him my life
I know that Jesus is enough

Jesus is enough
His mercy fills me up
His grace pours down each day
His Spirit guides the way
His love is everlasting
His joy exhilarating
His peace does fill my cup
Yes Jesus is enough

I do not need riches
I do not need fame
I do not need pleasures
I am not the same

Jesus is enough
His mercy fills me up
His grace pours down each day
His Spirit guides the way
His love is everlasting
His joy exhilarating
His peace does fill my cup
Yes Jesus is enough

 

Basking In Liberty

I want to have more of Jesus
More of His love and His grace
More of the joy He gives me
I want to see His face

I want to partake of His blessings
Abundant they are to me
I want to live in His fullness
And bask in His liberty

There’s only one way to do this
I must daily abide in His word
His life-giving message is written
So I can know just what’s in store

His promises are everlasting
His mercy and grace will endure
As long as I stay close beside Him
And make Him my Savior and Lord

 

In response to the daily prompt Partake

Settled in His Grace

VMy days can get so lonely
When I try to walk alone
But there’s no reason this should be the case
He promised to be with me
Until the very end
I’ll daily set my eyes to see His face

He’s with me in my spirit
I must listen carefully
His voice is calling out most every day
He wants a conversation
He wants my company
He wants to walk with me and guide my way

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

The sweet sweet love of Jesus
Is always there for me
In good times and in bad He’s always near
By faith I feel His presence
My spirit knows His breath
When I remember this I’ll never fear

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

Knowing Him
Loving Him
Praising Him
Hearing Him
All I need
He provides
Ever present
In my life

To be ever in His presence
To be always by His side
This Is what I long for
This is my desire
Walking close beside Him
Step by step each day
Hearing words of hope
Settled in His grace

Just Abide

Bewildered
The Master dead
What a tragedy
What now?

Quiet
No words of encouragement
No teaching remembered
Where can I draw strength?

Alone
My friend in the grave
He left before his work was done
Why did he have to die?

Worried
I have been seen with him
They think I am guilty too
What will I do now?

Afraid
They will be looking for me
They will be relentless
What will the rest of my life hold?

Sad
He was so good to us
He always encouraged us
How can I go on?

Brokenhearted
I loved him so much
My soul cries out for comfort
To whom shall I turn?

Waiting
He always told us to have hope
He always told us not to worry
How long must I hide?

I will just abide
I will go until tomorrow
I will take one day at a time
I will trust him
Even though he’s dead
