I Had Been Good

I wandered aimlessly about
Not knowing I was wrong 
Thinking all the while
That God would go along 
 
He didn't mind my sin
He really understood 
After all most of my life
I really had been good 
 
Then i heard that Jesus 
Was God's only true Son
I learned He died for me
So my sins would be gone 
 
He took all my transgression 
He nailed it to that cross
'Twas then I realized 
What my sin truly cost
 
I asked Him to forgive me
To wash my sins away
I told Him I would make Him Lord 
I'd serve Him every fay
 
Now I am bound for heaven
I pray that you are too
Make Jesus Christ your Lord today 
His love will pardon you

Now Him I Know

I walked into the nursing home that day knowing very soon I would leave in tears
I was here to visit a dear old friend who was slowly losing his mind
And I was with his wife of over 50 years
 
As we walked into his room I saw his children there three boys and one lovely daughter
They were standing by his chair; the girl was sitting down,
And they were sharing in a little bit of laughter
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
His wife walked up beside the bed and smiled and he returned a look of wonder and a sigh
She said “How are you today my dear.  I’ve missed you oh so much”
And she reached out and gave a gentle touch
 
The old man looked bewildered she was there.  He said “Do I know you?  Why do you care?”
As she held back the tears, she said “I am your wife,
And we’ve been together nearly all our lives”
 
He did not know those he’d known all his life
He did not know his children; he did not know his wife
As they tried to smile they were holding back the tears
They had faded from his mind throughout the years.
 
She turned to leave the room, but they looked back to her life’s love
And she uttered one more thing before she left the room
“Jesus Loves You, this I know” were the final words she said
And the old man’s eyes got big and he lifted up his head
 
 
 
“Now Him I know!  He’s the Savior of my soul!
I gave my life to him so many years ago.”
His wife came running up, and with a hug she kissed his cheek
She said “Soon you will see him, and you’ll walk on golden streets”
 
Yes, Him I know!  He’s the one who makes me whole
I will walk with Him in heaven, walk on streets of gold
And even though I don’t know much down here on earth below
Quite soon I’ll be in heaven because – Him I know!
 
Many of us know a lot of people.  We may know business owners who can help us figure out what product will best suit our needs.  We may know plumbers who can come in a fix a clogged drain or hook up a new sink.  We may know the mailman who faithfully delivers the mail every day.  We may know electricians, and pastors and politicians and many other people who can help us get through life.  We may have a bevy of friends who can come to our aid in times of trouble.  It’s good to know a lot of people!
 
But there is only one that  matters/  Knowing Jesus as my personal Savior is the only way to get to Heaven. He said He is the way and that no one goes to the Father except through Him.  We must know Jesus!  Do you know Jesus today.  If not, ask Him to forgive you of your sins.  Make Him Lord of your life today.  It is a decision you will never regret. I pray everyone who reads this knows Jesus!
 
 
 
 
Praise and Worship

I Magnify Your Name

I come before your throne
You are God and God alone
Lifted high in majesty
Your love surrounding me
Over everything I’ve got
You are the only one
Who comforts me
Who sets me free
 
I will lift my hands in praise to you
I will lift my voice to worship you
Lifted high
I magnify your name
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord
 
I bring an offering of praise
Holy is your name
Holy is your name oh Lord

This Is My Lord

A light into the darkness
A shelter from the storm
A river in the desert
This is my Lord

A healer to the hurting
A comfort when I mourn
A hope for all the hopeless
This is my Lord

A way when there is no way
A still small voice to warn
A peace in time of trouble
This is my Lord

A shaper of my future
A mender when I’m torn
A teacher of the righteous
This is my Lord

A friend when I am lonely
A truth when I am scorned
A rock and firm foundation
This is my Lord

A thousand years from now
He is who I’ll adore
My Savior and redeemer
This is my Lord

Worship Him Alone

Holy is the Lord
Seated on the throne
Clothed in royal majesty
Worship Him alone

Holy is the Lamb
Worshiped and adored
Let His name be magnified
Jesus Christ my Lord

Jesus, my Lord
Jesus, my Lord
I lift my hands up to the sky
I lift my voice to magnify
Your name is worthy of my praise
Jesus Christ my Lord

All I want to do is praise Him. From the mornings dawn to the setting sun, I lift my hands in praise. As I gaze up at the wonders in the glorious stars, I can’t help but stand in awe of His creation. I lift my voice to magnify His name, His wondrous name. he is not seated on His throne in heaven. He paid the price for my sin and has been raised by His Father, who loved Him. His Father sent Him to show how much he loved each one of us. He loves all of us so much. He loves you more than you can imagine. He loves me more than I can fathom. That is why I praise Him. That is why I glorify His name. That is why I sing this song today, and each song He gives me every day. Because He is worthy of my praise. Not because He provides for me, protects me, delivers me, saves me and does so much for me. I praise Him simply because he is worthy.

Psalm 8:9
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You’re Beautiful, Lord

You’re beautiful, Lord
My eyes behold your glory in the heavens
My lips sing your praise on the earth
My ears long to hear your still, small voice
I smell the fragrance of the afternoon rains and I rejoice
My feet are swift to run to you
My arms reach out to embrace you
You’re beautiful, Lord

You’re wonderful, Lord
You paid the price for my sin
You took the stripes for my healing
You were nailed to a cross to set me free
Your blood was spilled to cleanse my mind
You rose again to give me eternal life
You are coming back to take me home
You’re wonderful, Lord

I will lift up my voice and praise you’re sweet name
Jesus, King of Kings
Jesus, Lord of Lords
Jesus, Lamb that was slain for me
Jesus, my redeemer
Jesus, My Savior
Jesus, forever He will be with me

I Need You Lord

I need you Lord
In my trials
In my sorrow
In my weakness
In tomorrow
In my heartache
When my faith goes
I need you Lord

Not a week
Not a day
Not an hour
Not a minute
Not a second
Not a blink
That I don’t need you Lord

Come to me Lord
I seek your face
Come to me Lord
I need your grace
Come to me Lord
I’ll give you praise
Oh how I need you Lord

The Great Display of Grace

I know that I’m now worthy of the love He has for me
He left His home in heaven just to die upon that tree
A sadness wells inside me every time I see His face
As the angels gaze in heaven at His great display of grace

He didn’t have to die for me yet suffered all that pain
The horror that he went through brought to Him no earthly gain
When he cried out it is finished all of heaven gave applause
My freedom had been purchased by the power of the cross

What a wonder now to see Him sitting on His royal throne
He has risen all victorious from a grave He did not own
Death defeated now He reigns over all my eyes can see
His great display pf grace has given me that victory

Now I lift my praises high to my Savior and my Lord
I stand and lift my hands to the one that I adore
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God is lifted high in all my praise
As I think about His mercy and His great display of grace

The Glory of the Lamb

The Lamb of God came from above
To show us all the Fathers love
Upon the cross He bled and died
And thus became my sacrifice

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

The Lamb of God sits on the throne
From death to life His body rose
The angels praise His worthy name
Jesus my Lord Lamb that was slain

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

Heaven and earth declare His glory
Heaven and earth declare His glory
Heaven and earth declare His glory
The glory of His name
The glory of the Lamb

Oh what a love is this
That He would give His life
Oh what a love is this
That freedom now is mine

It’s Just the Cross

It’s not my knowledge or my fame
It’s not my power or my fame
It’s not the way I play a game
It’s just the cross

It’s not how many I should know
It’s not how wonderful I’ve grown
It’s not the seeds that I have sown
It’s just the cross

Just the cross
That’s what saves me
Just the cross
That’s what gives me life
Just the cross of Calvary
The one who died upon that tree
Jesus, my Savior and my Lord

It’s not thee words that I should speak
It’s all about the one I seek
It’s not the works that I display
It’s all about His holy name
The name of Jesus
The name of Jesus

Just the cross
That’s what saves me
Just the cross
That’s what gives me life
Just the cross of Calvary
The one who died upon that tree
Jesus, my Savior and my Lord
