Before

Before I rise from sleep
Before the day begins
Before I take one step
I’m going to talk to Him

Before I think of work
Before I plan my day
Before I fix my hair
I’ll ask Him for His way

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

Before my thoughts get full
Before my worries soar
Before my plans are set
I’ll look to His true Word

Before I take a sip
Before one bite goes down
Before my news is read
I’ll turn to His sweet sound

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

He knows the plans He has for me
Plans for good to build my faith
Whatever comes what trials may fall
He knows before to guide my way

Everywhere I Go

I’m enjoying my life on this journey
With a peace in the depth of my soul
For I know that my Savior is with me
Everywhere I go

When the trials of life overtake me
I can still keep His joy in my heart
For I know that the spirit will guide me
Everywhere I go

What a wonderful Savior, a glorious Lord
That would take of His time to be with me
Oh What grace He bestows and His mercy abounds
Every day that I’m on this journey

When I come to the end of my journey
I’m assured that I’ll be close to Him
For I know that He’ll travel beside me
Everywhere I go

When I walk with Him
All my troubles seem small
All my burdens are light
All my worries will fall
There’s a peace that endures
And a joy that’s sublime
So wherever I go
He walks right beside

What a wonderful Savior, a glorious Lord
That would take of His time to be with me
Oh What grace He bestows and His mercy abounds
Every day that I’m on this journey

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

In Your Embrace

My life is like a winding trail
That wanders to and fro
Sometimes I am so close to God
And other times I fall
I want my walk much deeper
So He will be my all
Draw me to your side, Oh God

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

I don’t want to wander
Through this life anymore
I want to follow closely
To the path set by my Lord
Help me God to hear you
And to follow where you lead
That I may always be where I belong

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

His Watchful Ear

You go your way I’ll go mine
Is a phrase we often hear
Some people think the path they take
Escapes God’s watchful ear

But He hears every word you say
He sees the things you do
When you decide to turn your back
He calls right out to you

If you are on the cusp today
Not knowing where too turn
Ask Jesus  to come rescue you
For your heart He does yearn

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Cusp

So They Might

You are the potter, I am the clay
Mold me and shape me after your way
Make me a witness to others today
So they might see you, I pray

You are the vine and I am a branch
Teach me, dear Lord,  to follow your plan
Help me to witness throughout this land
So they might feel your hand

You are the shepherd and I am your sheep
Guide me to all your commandments keep
Help me to reach out to others needs
So they might know the love they reap

You are the Master, I follow you
Hoping that, daily, your love will show through
And you’ll get the praise for all you do
The glory belongs to you

I’ll lift your praises up high every day
I’ll give you the glory in every way
That others will come to know and be saved
This I will fervently pray

Hold Me Jesus

Hold me Jesus

Hold me close

In your loving arms

Keep me safe

From any danger

Keep me from all harm

 

Touch me Jesus

Touch me now

Heal me from this pain

Make me whole

In mind and body

Give me health again

 

You are such a merciful Savior

Always doing good for me

I can trust that all that happens

Is ordained so I can be

All that you would have me be.

 

Teach me Jesus

Teach me truth

From your Holy Word

Give me wisdom

Give me knowledge

So your truth I can discern

 

Guide me Jesus

Guide me now

On the proper path

Let me know

If I should wander

Bring me home at last

 

You are such a loving Savior

Always doing for my good

I can trust each day you give me

Will bring me right where it should

 

Glory be to you, sweet Jesus

Praise your mighty, holy name

I will worship you forever

Holy, Holy is your name

Holy, Holy is your name
