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

What A Merciful God

What a merciful God we serve
What a merciful God we serve
He gave His own Son
To die in our place
What a merciful God we serve

What amazing grace He gives me
What amazing grace He gives me
Al His blessings divine
Are forever mine
What amazing grace He gives me

What abundant hope God has shared
What abundant hope God has shared
I know heaven is mine
For He lives for all time
What abundant hope God has shared

What adoring love God reveals
What adoring love God reveals
Every promise I own
As He sits on the throne
What adoring love He has shown

A Glorious Plan

I can’t always see
Where this road is lead
I can’t always know
What His grace will bestow
I can’t always understand
The way of His master plan
But I know all things work for my good

Whether sickness or pain or trial of faith
Whether heartache or sorrow or doubt for tomorrow
No matter what comes I know He’s right there
His hope is my refuge His grace is my stay

He has a plan that nothing can change
Full of blessings prepared just for me
As I walk by faith
In His mercy and grace

Be A Star

I see your sunny smile
I see your well-kept hair
I see your stunning outfit
I see the shoes you wear

I see your sparkling eyes
I see your earrings bright
I see your walking gait
As you stroll past in the light

These things are all wonderful
They mean so much to you
But what is most important
Is invisible to view

I love the mercy that you show
To others facing need
I see such grace in words you use
They’re kind and very sweet

I hear you say the best of things
To all who come around
I know you’re thinking good thoughts
About those who are down

You see it’s not the way we look
That makes us be a star
It’s how we act toward others
That makes us who we are

Unbroken

Unbroken peace
He gives to me
Amidst the storm
He calms the sea

Unbroken joy
In darkest night
From deep within
He’s my delight

Unbroken hope
In times of doubt
Whatever comes
He brings me out

Unbroken grace
That flows so free
When I fall down
He pardons me

Unbroken love
Will never fail
I may give up
But He prevails

Unbroken praise
To Christ my Lord
I’ll lift His name
Forevermore

Grace Won

Lord I cry to you heal this cold
Coughing and wheezing are growing old
How I need rest from the breathing woes
Pour your grace on me

Lord I plead with you help me sleep
Settle my mind in slumber deep
Help me to find that place of peace
Pour your grace on me

Whatever comes my way
Wherever you may lead
Pour your grace over me
Whenever health returns
However this day be
Pour your grace over me

Lord I beg of you touch my life
Keep me close to you through this night
May I always lift your name high
Pour your grace on me

Then when the morning comes
When this long night is done
I’ll lift your name
I’ll give you praise
For through it all grace won

Whatever comes my way
Wherever you may lead
Pour your grace over me
Whenever health returns
However this day be
Pour your grace over me

Sweet Grace

Awake to the dawn of the sun as it rises
A new day He’s given to lift up His praise
A walk toward the sunset to see the bright colors
That glorify God in our life everyday

These are the typical ways that we see Him
All in the splendor that He gifts us with
These are the times that we lift our praises
For He has given to us such great gifts

Yet even even in sorrow our hearts should still praise Him
Even in doubt we should bow at His throne
For God is still there always walking beside us
In good times and bad, we are never alone

Don’t wait for good times and hold in your worship
Don’t wait until you think all is in place
God always loves you no matter your trail
He will come cover you with His sweet grace

The Treasure

I’ve wandered through the valley
I’ve scaled the mountain heights
I’ve travelled down the rivers
Below the stars so bright
In all my earthly travels
And exploits far and wide
Jesus is more beautiful than all

I’ve tasted of the finest foods
I’ve smelled sweet odors vast
I’ve heard the songs of whippoorwills
Deep in the heartland grass
In all that I’ve partaken
Throughout this blessed life
Jesus is the sweetest of them all

Diamonds don’t compare to Him
Rubies fade away
Emeralds lose their luster
Gold is dull and gray
He shines as brightly as the sun
He glimmers in my eye
Jesus is my treasure
Today and for all time

I’ve been with men of high estate
I’ve tasted of that life
I’ve had my days of wealth and fame
I’ve scaled the corporate heights
With all the people I have met
Their power and their might
Jesus is the mightiest of all

In all of His greatness
His mercy covers me
In all of His grandeur
His grace is all I need
Powerful and Mighty
King of Kings is He
Yet He loves me more than I can see

Diamonds don’t compare to Him
Rubies fade away
Emeralds lose their luster
Gold is dull and gray
He shines as brightly as the sun
He glimmers in my eye
Jesus is my treasure
Today and for all time

Give Them Away

He gave to me mercy
So I could be free
He gave to me grace
So my eyes could see
He gave to me joy
It gushes in me
On top of all that
He gave me His peace

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must
Give to others what He’s given me

He gave to me hope
Now heaven is mine
He gave me forgiveness
He’s good and He’s kind
He gave me His love
So faithful and true
He gave me all this
So I’d give it to you

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must
Give to others what He’s given me

These things that He gave me
These gifts of His love
Should flow out of me to touch you
These things should give life
To all who know me
If His will I’ve decided to do
They’re not for hoarding
Or holding on to
I need to give then away
When I follow Him
With all that I am
I’ll give them away every day

Oh what a blessing to live for the Lord
I am so glad He’s the one I adore
He gives me so much
He tells me I must
