Mercy and Grace

Escaping Hell

Once upon a time there was a sinner
His name was the same as mine
The drunkenness and drugs were his lifestyle
He did those things to pass the time

He was a long-haired, dope smoking hippie
He was dirty and smelly and raw
His filthy language matched his appearance
People really got what they saw

He hadn’t ever cared about salvation
Hell seemed liked the perfect place to go
He thought it would be a giant party
And forever he’d enjoy the show

A friend of his took him to church one Sunday
Where a missionary came on stage
He talked about a final destination
But the sinner didn’t recognize the place

He said hell was like a fiery furnace
Where the lost would burn forever and a day
Gnats and ants would run all through their living bodies
And there was only one way you could escape

A man named Jesus died upon a cross
To save all those who walked each day in sin
The sinner heard that he could have this rescue
If he’d confess his sin and repent

Of course, by now you know this is no fable
The sinner mentioned here was surely me
The day I heard that powerful story
Would change my life eternally

I now knew I did not want to go to hell
I knew I needed Jesus in my life
And when I asked for His blessed forgiveness
I knew that His salvation was now mine

Do you think hell will be a great big party?
If so, I have bad news for you today
Just think if you were tossed into a furnace
Where your body would burn up every day

Don’t get me wrong, you would still be living
The fire would not consume your life
But you would feel the fire burn and keep on burning
The blisters and the pain would not subside

Ants and gnats would bite you without ceasing
Demons kicking, clawing, scratching all the time
You’d feel every pain and every ounce of torment
And all the while your flesh would be alive

The end of all our days is drawing nearer
Maybe now’s the time you realize your end
Jesus came to save you from this hell destruction
And make heaven your home instead

Will you, today, put your trust in Jesus?
Will you ask Him for forgiveness of your sins?
Will you make Him Lord of your life forever?
If you will, you can rest assured you’ll win.

It’s not that all your trials will just vanish
But in the midst of them you will find peace
In sorrows you will find a place of comfort
In sickness you will find that He will heal

Joy will always be at your disposal
A joy that no earthly power can quench
And the hope of heaven will always be before you
No more sorrow, no more pain, and no more death

Every Knee Will Bow

I walked through the gates of the city
Made of pearls that were whiter than snow
The walls were adorned in vast jewelry
And the streets were made out of pure gold

I saw brilliant light all around me
That came from the Lamb on the throne
All around they were singing His praises
And this was the song that arose

Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Every knee will bow
Every tongue will confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne

I fell to my knees and I worshipped
As the angels flew 'Round the throne
In ine voice they lifted their praises
To the King of Kings alone

They sang holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy holy, holy is the Lamb

Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Every knee will bow
Every tongue will confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne

Great Assurance

Even when it's cloudy,  the sun always abides 
Even when it's raining, the rainbow will shine
When the thunder roars, the lightning will flash
Winds may fiercely blow, but the storm will surely pass.

There's not a single moment my God is not with me
Giving me the strength to face the storms with peace
I have this great assurance the He will give me grace
And guide me through the trials that I will surely face

That's why I live each day with optimism grand
I know that I am settled in His almighty plan
And when my time is over and heaven is my home
I'll praise His name forever and dance around His throne

Glorious Day

He paved the way to heaven
With blood and sweat and tears
He paid for all my sin
And dispelled all of my fears
Now he waits there for me
And will come to get me soon
I’m waiting for His coming
And to hear that trumpet tune

Glorious day
What a glorious day that will be
Glorious day
When He comes back for me
The trumpet will announce Him
The clouds will part before
And then I will forever
Be in heaven with my Lord

Your Mansion

As I rode the clouds to heaven there was no surprise
The see Jesus waiting there when I arrived
Clothed in royal splendor, adorned by love and grace
I fell down on my knees as I gazed into His face

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
Holy, holy, much to be adored
Clothed in royal splendor.  High above all things
Majesty on High.  Jesus King of Kings

He said your mansions ready.  Come and dine with me
The table is already for the royal marriage feast
The wedding of the bridegroom and His long-awaited bride
My church has entered in top their eternal life


Then He took me by the hand and walked me down the street
Gold was all round us as His love enveloped me
Scores of angels followed singing praises to His name
I couldn’t help but join them as they praised the risen Lamb

CHORUS (2 times)

Sounding Out His Praise

 I can’t wait to see Him
 Sitting on the throne
 Surrounded by the elders
 Who bow to Him alone.
 Cherubim and Seraphim
 Sounding out His praise
 I bow before His glory
 And with my heart upraised I sing
 Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 We walk on the streets of glory 
 His face is all I see
 He leads me to a mansion
 That was built just for me and I sing
 Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lord
 Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lord
 All power and honor and glory and strength to Him who sits on the throne
 All power and honor and glory and strength to Him who sits on the throne
 I sing holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 Holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 And I sing worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lord
 Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lord


Yesterday I was lost
My soul was bound for hell
Then Jesus came along
And released me from my cell
Tomorrow I’ll be with Him
In heavenly places above
He’s building me a mansion
Since He saved me with His love
Today I’m going to praise Him
For all that he has done
Today I’ll worship His sweet name
For the future that will come
For all that He has promised me
Boils down to just today
So this day I’ll make the most of it
And lift His holy name
Why do we go about thinking we can get something done tomorrow?  Has God promised us tomorrow?  Do you know something that I don’t about the future?  Because from what I read, God ahs only promised us that we have this present moment.  He can call us home any time.  He can take our faster than the blink of an eye.  He can have chariots come down from heaven and whisk us away if He wants to.  But I go about thinking I can press on toward the mark tomorrow.  I think I can have my time of prayer tomorrow, that I can [praise Him tomorrow, that I can be delivered tomorrow, that my finances will get better tomorrow.  Jesus said we should take no thought for tomorrow! (Matthew 6:34).  We often translate this into don’t worry, but  if we take it literally it would tell us to not even think about tomorrow.  God is the God of NOW, of TODAY!
I pray you will make the most of this day.  Spend a little longer today in prayer than yesterday.  Spend a little more time in the word, a little more time on your knees, a little more time reaching out to others, a little more time praising Him.  Time is a finite thing.  We can’t get more of it.  But we can redeem it properly, use it to our advantage.  Make sure you are making the most of your time by concentrating on doing more for the Lord todayt
Ephesians 5:16 King James Version
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

This Heavenly Place

I’ve lived a little less than seventy years
Sometimes in joy and sometimes in tears
Sometimes I’ve cried and sometimes I’ve cheered
I’ve sure had my ups and downs
But all of those years are nothing at all
To the future I’ll have in heavens great halls
Where I’ll eternally answer that heavenly call
To bow down and worship the Lamb
I’ll join with the elders around His throne
And all of those numbered as one of His own
Who they all are I truly don’t know
In that day I will dance with them all
My mouth will I open my voice will I raise
In a thunderous ovation of heavenly praise
As I worship the mighty magnificent name
Of Jesus Christ my Lord
Jesus, my Jesus I love you so much
Jesus, my Jesus I’m glad that you touched me
Jesus, my Jesus I lift up my praise
To your magnificent name
I am with you today
In this heavenly place
What a Savior you are to me
The Believers Life

Whan All Is Said And Done

I had trials and tribulations down on this earth below
My life seemed so uncertain, i did not know which way to go
I’m so grateful for the day that i was saved by grace
Soon I’ll see my Savior this I know

When all is said and done I’ll see Jesus
He’ll meet me just inside those pearly gates
All sorrow will be gone and pain will be erased
When I meet Jesus face to face

Many friends and family left me as they passed from death to life
Some had asked me if I’d see them when i reached the other side
So i opened up the book and i gave them all a look
Where it says we have eternal life


I’m looking forward to the day when I will fly away
When my life on earth is o’er and time will be no more
I’ll rise by His sweet grace before I see His face
I’ll be with Him forevermore


I’ll Pass

One day I’ll pass from this earth
My friends will see me no more
Don’t weep for me
Because Jesus I’ll see
When I reach heavens shore

There will be a great celebration 
When I pass through those pearly gates 
For when I arrive 
I’ll look in His eyes
I’ll stand there amazed by His grace

He loved me when I did not know Him
He took all my sins away
Then He rose from the grave
Guaranteeing my place
In the mansion that He would make

I ask you this day to give thanks
To my Savior and my Lord
He made the way
For you to be saved 
On this day let him be adored
