The Only One

Where does the power come from
Where does your grace reside
Where can I find forgiveness
At the cross. The wonderful cross

Where was I healed from sickness
Where was my shame washed away
Where is there found true freedom
At the cross. The wonderful cross

CHORUS
No other place on earth nor in heaven high above
Has God come down to man to show His eternal love
No sacrifice was greater than God giving His only son
No other one can save us. Jesus is the only one

Where did He give me new life
Where was heaven made home
Where did He gain the victory
At the tomb when He rose again

CHORUS

BRIDGE
He rose in power and glory
He rose in majesty
He rose so we could rise with Him
When He shall return again

CHORUS

Victory by Death

He was beaten, bruised and torn
His body tired and worn
Yet he did not speak a word in His defense
A crown of thorns upon His head
His forehead slowly bled
Then pain and agony was quite intense

Then they placed a robe upon Him
With a scepter in His hands
The guard knelt down and mocked Him as a King
Little did they know their words
Were true through all of time
Because He was indeed the King of Kings

The cross was laid upon His back
He fell beneath its weight
His weak and bloody body just gave out
They led Him to Golgotha
They nailed Him to the cross
Forgive them was His final living shout

They thought they had the victory
But soon they would find out
That what they did would touch all of mankind
Three days He laid a dead man
But then He rose again
The victory over life and death complete

He brought us victory that day
He showed us His amazing grace
By dying and then rising up again
Now we should live for Him
His Word deep down within
For soon He will be coming back again

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

All For Me

All For Me

I was stuck in miry clay
All alone deep in my sin
When the Savior came to me
As I was

He shed His blood for me
Rose again to give me life
Today I stand with Him
As I am

CHORUS
Yesterday, today, forever He will never change
His love and His sweet peace always remain
I can place my trust in Him
For He washed away my sin
Forever I will lift my hands in praise

He’s coming back for me
I will look upon His face
Forever with my Lord
I will be

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Yesterday I was lost, He paid the cost
Today I am set free He ransomed me
Tomorrow He will come in clouds above
All for me. All for me

CHORUS

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

He Could Have

He could have let me die
Swallowed by my sin
He could have left me trapped
By the demons deep within
He could have turned his back
On all my misery
He could have but He didn’t
By His grace He set me free

He could have kept his joy
And left me in despair
He could have kept his peace
And left my life impaired
He could have kept his hope
And left me with no plan
He could have but he didn’t
By His grace he took my hand

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

He could have curbed my faith
So doubt would fill my mind
He could have withheld goodness
So that I would not be kind
He could have left me reeling
In sickness and disease
He could have but He didn’t
Instead he blesses me

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

One day he will come back to welcome me home
He could have stayed in heaven and be worshipped on His throne
He chose to come and take for me the torture of the cross
He could have let me die in sin but instead He paid the cost

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

 

The Cross is All I See

My neighbor built a rock garden
With a fountain flowing free
Some birdhouses hung above the rocks
On a pole that had a tee
A light was hoisted high
To shine for all to see
And when I looked upon it
The cross is all I see

As I travel ‘round for business
The landscape is so vast
I look out on the countryside
As long as sunlight lasts
Spread all along the roadside
Are wires dangling free
From poles with arms attached
The cross is all I see

What a wondrous gift God gave us
In an old rugged cross
A symbol of God’s grace and love for me
I travel through my neighborhood
And all around the state
Seems everywhere the cross is there to see

Open your eyes to see the cross
Each day you go outside
It’s their in all its beauty
The cross will never hide
And when you meet a friend
Tell Him of God’s great love
Tell Him about the cross you see
Gods great gift from above

I Have Decided

I have decided to follow Jesus Christ
He’s the King of all Kings
He’s the Lord of my life
He’s a friend that’s faithful
He supplies all my needs
I have decided to follow His lead

i have decided to live for Jesus Christ
He came down from heaven to offer His life
Creator of all my redeemer is He
I’ll share His love with each person I see

I have decided my life is in Christ
I’ll die to myself and give Him my life
For He has a plan that is tailored for me
He’ll make me all I’m created to be

Will you make this choice to make Jesus your Lord
it’s a choice you shpuld make it should not be ignored
Just ask His forgiveness and turn fro. your sin
And soon His sweet peace will enter within

Jesus Life

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

 

Fill Every Pore

God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
That all who would believe would have new life
He called to me one day
That I would share His ways
And tell all men of His great sacrifice

Truly my desire
Is that I would be on fire
With a passion for the lost
Give my life at any cost
Just to see a soul get rescued
From their sin

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul

All my heart cries out
That my words turn them about
So that they would see their sin
Then their spirit groan within
Causing them to cry to Jesus
Save me Lord

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul
