A Crown of Victory

Adam and Eve were awakened that day
When their innocency was washed away
From God’s presence they became afraid
So they hid from the face of God
 
He asked them why they hid away
They blamed one another for their shame
But God knew that they were both to blame
Sin had now entered the world
 
He told the woman she would give birth
He told the man that the earth would be cursed
Thorns and thistles would grow to hinder their work
In that garden that once was free
 
The way was blocked to the tree of life
For thousands of years man lived in strife
Then Jesus cam and offered His life
As a ransom for you and me
 
He told a story about seeds that were sown
The seed of the Word of God was His own
Yet for many the thorns made the word unknown
And the seed withered and died
 
The thorns He wore that day as a crown
Represented the thorns that grew from the ground
Of the garden that day when man fell down
He wore them the day that He died
 
But those thorns were a crown of victory
That Jesus won for you and me
He is the way to that wonderful tree
That gives us eternal life
 
 
 
 

He Was….But He

He was a King
But He became a servant
He was mocked
But He gives comfort
He was despised
But He loves me
He was rejected
But He accepts me
He was questioned
But He is the answer
He was unforgiven
But He forgave us
He was weak
But He gives us strength
He was called a liar
But He is the truth
He was thought to be lost
But He is the way
He wept over Jerusalem
But He dries our tears
He was always traveling about
But He gives us rest
He was troubled in the garden
But He gives us peace
He was forsaken by those closest to Him
But He will never leave us
He was silent before Herod
But He is the Word of Life
He was beaten
But He gives healing
He was crowned with thorns
But He gives us wisdom
He was thirsty
But He is the living water
He was burdened with our sin
But He took our sin away
He was crucified
But He gives us life
He was dead
But He gives us power
He was laid in a dark tomb
But He is the Light
He was alone in the grave
But He is always with us
He was buried
But He rose again
He went back to heaven
But He’s coming back soon

To Die For Us

What a light
What a light so bright
Came down to us
To die for us

What a child
What a lowly child
Came down to us
To die for us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

What a day
He went to the grave
Three days later He arose
He came to save us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

To redeem us
To restore us
To return us back to you

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

Christmas Poetry

I Believe

I did not see the star that shone above so bright
I did not hear the innkeeper say there’s no room tonight
I did not see the shepherds or the wise men by His side
It’s written in His book so I believe

I did not hear Him teaching His gracious words of life
I did not see Him healing those who came to Him in strife
I did not seethe demons as they heard Him and took flight
It’s written in His book so I believe

CHORUS
I believe
I believe
With the faith that I was born with I believe
Though all may try to stop me
And take this faith from me
With all that is within me
I believe

I did not hear the crowds as they cried out crucify
I did not see Him hung with two thieves by His side
I did not hear Him fry out it is finished when he die
It’s written in the book so I believe

CHORUS

They laid Him in a tomb and sealed it with a stone
They guarded Him in death thinking He was all alone
But the grave could not hold Him
The stone could not contain Him
He rose up from the dead
I believe
I believe

CHORUS

Behold My Son

The time has come
The night is passed
The sun is soon
To rise at last

As I await
The morning light
I look to God
To give me sight

Behold the sun
It’s brilliant rays
Light up the clouds
When comes the day

Amidst the shadows
When trouble looms
I wait for God
To bring good news

His voice I hear
In grace so mild
Lift up your head
My little child

Behold my Son
Look on His face
Soon all your sorrow
Will erase

He’ll bring you joy
His peace abounds
Stand near to Him
On Holy ground

Behold my Son
His grace will shine
Just like the sunrise
In the sky

In every day
When trouble comes
Get rid of fear
Behold my Son

Come to the Wonderful Cross

If you need healing
If you need peace
If you need joy
Come

If you need deliverance
Freedom or hope
Come to the wonderful cross

Come to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Jesus suffered and died
He took our sins
Our worries and fears
All on that wonderful cross

If you need faith
Forgiveness and life
Come to the wonderful cross

He gave His all
So we could have all
He gave His life
A great sacrifice
He gave His body
A ransom for all
Come to the wonderful cross

Come to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Jesus suffered and died
He took our sins
Our worries and fears
All on that wonderful cross

Jesus You Are Marvelous

Jesus you are marvelous
Your glory fills the skies
I cannot wait until the day
I look into your eyes

Jesus you are wonderful
Your love has captured me
I didn’t even know you
When you came and rescued me

Jesus you are glorious
Your Word is now my Light
I used to live in darkness
You’ve given me my sight

Jesus you are everything
You fill my every need
I cannot live without you
You are more than life to me

Jesus you’re amazing
Your mercy covers me
I don’t deserve your love
Yet you still take hold of me

Jesus you are all I need
All my heart requires
All of me will praise your name
Until my breath expires

 

It’s His Mercy

People often ask me why I follow Christ
They just don’t seem to understand His benefits in life
I tell them it’s quite simple and easy to receive
Just ask Him for forgiveness and then His Word believe

Once these things have happened your eyes will open wide
You’ll understand that Jesus is right there by your side
Truly you will know that He cares for you each day
One thing will really stand out as you walk along His way

It’s His mercy plain and simple
His mercy came for me
His mercy left a throne above to die upon a tree
His mercy then forgave me
His mercy gave me life
His mercy keeps me everyday
His mercy is my guide

His mercy brings me healing
His mercy frees my soul
His mercy brings such joy and peace
His mercy I will hold
I’ve learned I cannot live without
This mercy that He gives me
His mercy is the source of Life
His mercy covers me

When anybody asks again what Jesus did for you
When they say they just can’t why you worship like you do
Just smile and look at them with your eyes just full of love
And tell them it’s His mercy His mercy is enough

His Only Son

I never understood the tests
I always tried to do my best
But never found a quiet place to rest

But then the Holy Spirit comes
He places me in Jesus arms
I realize I’m free from any harm

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

I now can safely rest in Him
I have a quiet peace within
I’ll never doubt His wondrous grace again

He’ll always be there by my side
His loving mercy will abide
And I will be forever satisfied

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

His only Son delivered
His only Son has healed me
His only Son took all my pain away
His only Son became my Lord
His only Son whom I adore
His only Son to whom I pray

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

Born again

A New Start

Leave all your doubt
Leave all your fear
Leave all your worry
Be of good cheer
Trust in the Lord
With all your heart
He’ll light your path
He’ll bring you out

Leave all your anger
Leave gossiping
Leave all your troubles
Come to the King
Trust in the Lord
Give Him your life
He’ll give you peace
In the midst of your strife

Leave all your sin
There at the cross
Leave all your shame
He paid the cost
Bow at His feet
Worship His name
Jesus is Lord
Give Him your praise

Holy is He
Holy is he
Bring adoration
Down on your knees
Humbly before Him
Seek His sweet grace
Once your forgiven
Look in His face

He loves you more
Than you can imagine
He’ll help you through
In ways you can’t fathom
Trust in the Lord
With all your heart
This is the time
To make a new start
