One More of Me

Some days I get so busy
With all the words He gives
The Holy Spirit speaks to me
To let me know I’m His

When I seem to lag behind
In my chores around the house
i wish I had a doppleganger
Just to help me out

He could do the needed things
To make my living sweet
While I take time to listen close
And hear the Master speak

It’s then I’ll hear Him whisper
These little rhymes of mine
Then I will write them down for you
And keep them for all time

Surging Water Thrills

I love the sound of a brook babbling through the trees
It wanders over rocks just like a gentle breeze
A stream flows ever faster more water joining force
As brooks all funnel to it altering it’s course

The streams become a river which is often deep and wide
Then at times a shallow bed shows rocks that used to hide
Now if that shallow river flows much faster down a hill
The rapid movement of that flow makes surging water thrills

This steady flowing river reminds me of my life
The Holy Spirit runs through me like a river wide
When trials come like rocks ahead and thrills are plain to see
His fruit and gifts will rise up strong to always comfort me

Fill This Place

This is a new song the Lord gave me this morning. I have already done a video so here are the words and the video.  Hope you enjoy it!

Let the anointing fill this place
Let the anointing fill this place
With our hands lifted to the heavens
Our hearts long for your sweet presence
Fill this place with your grace
Anointing fill this place

We worship you. We worship you
Sweet Lamb of God we worship you
We worship you. We worship you
With all our heart we worship you

Holy Spirit fill this place
Holy Spirit fill this place
We look to you in expectation
We lift up a great ovation
Fill this place with your grace
Holy Spirit fill this place

We worship you. We worship you
Sweet Lamb of God we worship you
We worship you. We worship you
With all our heart we worship you

Holy Spirit Fire

I put my jammies on
And jumped into my bed
My warm and comfy covers
We’re pulled o’er my head
The cold north wind was howling
As temperatures dipped low
The whisky clouds that blew on by
Seemed ready to drop snow

Winter I’m not ready for
The cold and ice can go
I’ll be housebound for months
Low immunity in tow
But I have a secret weapon
That can warm me right away
I cry out to my Savior
And start to lift my praise

I lift my praise
I lift it high
My song I sing to you
My Lord and Savior Jesus
I lift my voice to you
Send your Holy Spirit fire
To warm me in my soul
My worship will exalt your name
My God my King my Lord

I throw the covers off
I jump up from my bed
I dance across the room
My hands above my head
Rejoicing in the spirit
Filled with Holy fire
I open up my mouth to praise
I lift to Him my eyes

Lord of Lords
King of Kings
Hear my worship offering
Savior Healer
Blessed Redeemed
To you my praise now I sing

I lift my praise
I lift it high
My song I sing to you
My Lord and Savior Jesus
I lift my voice to you
Send your Holy Spirit fire
To warm me in my soul
My worship will exalt your name
My God my King my Lord

Heart today

In this place

What a marvelous God
What a presence is here
When your Spirit is near (REPEAT)

Holy Holy Lamb of heaven
Worthy of my highest praise

 

His Presence

His Love Will Always Come Through

I sing of the mercy and the grace of Jesus
How He gives them freely and changes my life
My provider my protector my refuge and fortress
My shelter in storm and in darkness my light

I sing of His peace and His joy overflowing
How He gives me hope that fills up my soul
He calms all my doubts and takes worry away
His plan for my future will be evermore

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

I sing of the Spirit He gives me abundant
The Comforter sweet that’s always beside
He teaches me truth and leads me through trouble
In times of decision He is my guide

I can depend on all of these things
No matter what my come or go
His great faithfulness will be my comfort
Everywhere I go

But it’s His love His sweet love that I cherish
A love that is lasting and true
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through
Even if I should fail
Or if I should fall
His love will always come through

I Chose Jesus

When I was young I made a lot of choices
Some good, some bad and some fell in between
I really didn’t know
Which way that I should go
I wandered through my life quite aimlessly

Through drugs and alcohol my journey took me
Wild women and a lot of lonely nights
I couldn’t find my way
Sank lower every day
Until I couldn’t see the dark from light

Then an old friend invited me to visit
Across the country travelling I went
It’s then I met his friend
On whom he did depend
I made a choice that’s been mine ever since

I chose Jesus
From a missionaries’ words
I chose Jesus
He convinced me I was lost
I chose Jesus
I had no desire to live my life that way
I chose Jesus
He has filled me with His love
I chose Jesus
His sweet spirit leads the way
I chose Jesus
Now I choose Him each and every day

Now I have a wife and family beside me
Many friends encourage me along the way
With Jesus as my choice
He is my inner voice
I strive to take in very word He says

I choose Jesus
As the one that I will love
I choose Jesus
He will guide me from above
I choose Jesus
I will follow Him wherever He may lead
I choose Jesus
Won’t you come along with me
I choose Jesus
Make Him the one you seek
I choose Jesus
He will fill all your desires and your needs

Oh, Man, Turn to Me

I was walking on the beach
In a dream I had last night
Soft sand under my feet
As the waves crashed in
Incessantly

Then I heard the spirit speak to me
With the still small voice of God
“Hear the waves praise my name?
Hear them never cease to shout?
Loud and free.”

Then I traveled in my dream
To a meadow lined with trees
Just before the day dawned
As the birds chirp in glee
Unceasingly

Then I heard the spirit speak to me
With the still small voice of God
“Hear the birds praise my name?
Hear them fill the air with song?
So beautifully.”

Nature sings my praise all day
From wind to rain to streams
I long to hear the voice of man
Joining in their song

My crowning achievement
I gave him all of this
All of nature is at his disposal
All he needs is provided
Just like the birds and beasts
Just like the flowers and trees
Yet man does not praise me
But mocks me, scorns me, blames me

All I do is love him
I gave my son to set him free
I gave the spirit to guide him
Yet he chooses to remain lost
To remain by himself
Trying to figure life out
Trying to make it on his owns
Turning to things unknown
Harmful things, deadly things

Oh, man, turn to me
Lift up my name
Sing aloud my praise
I will lift you up
I will set you free
I will guide you through this world
Because I love you
I always have
I always will

Oh, man, turn to me
Join natures praise
Join the thankful chorus
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Emmanuel
For I am with you
Watching over you
Always
