Where Would I Be

If God were not merciful where would I be
I’m guessing I’d be dead for sin would kill me
My body would be buried under a tree
But my soul would be bound for hell

If God did not shed His grace where would I be
Most likely I would be without my family
I’d still be bound by the things that thrill me
Running around for the thrills

If God did not give His peace where would I be
Daily my worries would put fear in me
My hair would be gray and I would not be free
Most likely I’d hide in my shell

If God did not give me hope where would I be
I’d live for today and have constant parties
I would not care what tomorrow might bring
I certainly would not fear hell

If God did not live me where would I be
Lost in the depths of a sinful sea
Waves would be crashing in around me
And I would be bound for hell

Oh God you are merciful beyond degree
Your grace peace and hope are all around me
Your love reached my soul and has set me free
Now heaven is truly my home

I thank you dear Lord for setting me free
I thank you that I do not have to worry
I thank you that you sent your Son for me
Now I will live just for you

Your Choice

We are not robots
Not programmed for life
Not controlled by another
Not hard wired to a specific task
Not bound to a certain set of rules
Not mindlessly obedient

We are human beings
Independent
Determined to our own way
Free to choose our destiny
Free to decide our path
Free to walk where we want to walk

God created us
To love Him
But to make our own choice
Salvation is free
But not mandatory
You can choose
Heaven or hell
It’s up to you
What will you choose

Treasures in Heaven

I used to seek fame and fortune
My friends were what mattered to me
I’d laugh and I’d smile
I was high all the while
In their favor I wanted to be

Now my life values are different
Pleasing God is what matters to me
The one that I seek
Is truly unique
Just like Christ know want to be

This world has some treasures of dust
Their future is dim and bleak
What I will lay up
Will not corrupt
It is treasures in heaven for me

All Hail the King

I see cherubim and seraphim
As they dance in sheer delight.
The elders bow before the Lamb
A he comes full in their sight.
The sound of anthems fills the skies
And the clouds bear majesty
As we sing around His throne
.
All hail the King
Who is sitting on the throne
All hail the one
Who came to earth below.
He chose to bleed and die
So that I could have new life.
Now the heavens sound his praise forevermore.

As angels gather ’round the throne of God
And their praises soar to the heavens,
I enter the throne room and bow on my face
At the sight of Holy splendor.
I hear loud hosannas ring
And hallelujahs sing,
I can’t help but join the chorus with my praise

All hail the King
Who is sitting on the throne
All hail the one
Who came to earth below.
He chose to bleed and die
So that I could have new life.
Now the heavens sound his praise forevermore.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah to the King.
Loud Hosannas in the highest
Is the chorus that we sing.

Forever You Shall Reign

Jesus Lord of my salvation
King of Kings forever
Lamb upon the throne

Savior of the world redeemer
Lord of Lords eternal
Forever you shall reign

I will lift my hands in worship
I will lift my voice in praise
I will sing of your majestic name
You are worthy of the highest
Praise and adoration
You are Lord forever you shall reign

Cherubim and Seraphim
Dance around the throne
Singing eternal praises to you

Four and twenty elders
Bow before the your majesty
Worshiping and singing

All of heaven worships
All bow down before the Lamb
All will praise forever more
Christ Jesus son of God

I will lift my hands in worship
I will lift my voice in praise
I will sing of your majestic name
You are worthy of the highest
Praise and adoration
You are Lord forever you shall reign

 

Time for a Choice

Oh what pleasures this world gives
Of what happiness I can live
Oh how silly is all of this
When you think of eternity

Life here on earth is time for choice
Ephemeral earth will be destroyed
We all will end with the sound of one voice
The judgment of God will arrive

And all who have chosen Christ as their Lord
Will end up in heaven their crowns will adorn
But those who rejected the one I adore
Will spend all their days in hell

I beg you today to make up your mind
Because this life determines life for all time
Once dead there is chance to change your mind
Choose Jesus and you will be saved

Judgment Day

The heavens shall be open
A white horse shall appear
The man who sits upon him
Brings both judgment and war

His eyes are like a fire
His head bore many crowns
Clothed in garments dipped in blood
The Word of God He’s called

The armies of all heaven
Will follow Him this day
White horses will they ride upon
White garments will array

The fowls of the earth are called
To feast upon all flesh
And all who do remain on earth
Will meet a forecast death

If you are not familiar
With the words I’ve written here
Revelation nineteen ten
Is where you start to read

I do not share to frighten to
Because not all are doomed
There is a way of being saved
From all this talk of gloom

Make Jesus Christ your Lord and King
He is the only way
To be in heaven on this day
Won’t you be saved today

For All of Time

There’s so many people
Running with masks on
Hoping to fool some
Doing their goods deeds
Fulfilling their needs
Hoping that one day
They too will find the way
Into the pearly gates
For all of time

When Jesus will find them
Their disguise will not hide them
If He’s only Lord in name
Then they will be turned away
They must follow His commands
In order to make a stand
Today will you bow to Him
As Lord over everything
For all of time

Every Day Counts

We’ve all been given so many years
So many tears will we shed
Our life on this earth
Begins with our birth
And lasts until this flesh is dead

After this flesh has expired
Eternity waits just ahead
How we’ve behaved
Determines our fate
Heaven’s joy or a hell we would dread

Every day counts
Every word relates
Every action has been written down
If you’ve gone amiss
Think hell does not exist
In hell’s fire you’ll eventually drown

There is only one way to escape
From the fury of hell that awaits
Trust Jesus today
He’s the only way
To make heaven you’re home that day

Down on your knees
Repent of your sin
Ask for forgiveness
Ask Jesus in
Into your heart
Confess Him as Lord
Believe He arose
And go sin no more

Every day counts
Every word relates
Every action has been written down
If you’ve gone amiss
But then you’ve confessed
Heaven’s doors will await with a crown

The Lamb That Was Slain

I entered the gate
The pearl of great price
Into the throne room of God
The elders were singing
The angels were winging
The sound of praise was alive

With Cherubim soaring
And Seraphim roaring
I fell on my knees in awe
For right there before me
In all of His glory
Was the precious Lamb of God

They sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain

I joined in the chorus
With saints gone before us
‘Twas the sound of perfect praise
We lifted our hands
As the prayers of the ages
Rose before Him as sweet smelling grace

Our eyes beheld His glory
Our lips sang His praise
Our hearts leapt in worship
To the Lamb that was slain

We sang blessing and glory
Honor and power
Unto the Lamb that was slain
Holy Holy
Lord God Almighty
Was the sound of their refrain
