Forever Love

He loves us always
Yes it is true
Forever His love
Abides with you

Through sunshine and rain
His love abides
Through sorrow and pain
His love does not hide

When difficult times
Come in like a flood
His love will be there
Always enough

When i feel defeated
When my hope is gone
His love will hold me
And bring me along

When heartache has touched me
When life disappoints
His love will uplift me
His spirit anoints

There’s no situation
His love will not win
Forever His love
Is settled within

Hold Onto Jesus

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

My life was tangled and tortured
The sin stains were all in display
I had quite a collection of terrible things
Seems I never could find the right way

I was destined for doom and misfortune
My path seemed to be laid out
In a stupor I headed to church one day
To see what the fuss was about

When I walked in the door they were singing
Their voices were filled with great joy
I sat in the back wondering what to do next
As my head split in two from the noise

When singing was finished the preacher got up
He shouted out Praise the Lord
Then He said is there one who does not know the way
It’s time for you now to come forward

I don’t know what compelled me to rise to my feet
I slowly walked up to the front
The tears started flowing as prayers were uplifted
The pastor then gave me a hug

As he stood there with arms wrapped around me
He said Jesus Loves you my son
Confess all your sins
Give your life up to Him
You’ll never regret when it’s done

I closed my eyes
I bowed my head
I prayed that prayer
My heart leapt from my chest
The peace that came in
And the joy that I felt
I knew something changed
Inside I could tell
I raised up my arms and began to rejoice
Thank you sweet Jesus for saving my soul
The people all lifted their voice in sweet praise
I knew that my life had drastically changed

As I left that old church later on in the day
I made up my mind to not turn away
I’d hold onto new life the old was now gone
I’d hold onto Jesus and sing this new song

I’ve got to hold onto Jesus and let go of me
If I want to be all that I can be
There’s a much better life just waiting for me
If I’ll hold onto Jesus and let go of me

The Right Course

I can run out of gas
I can run out of food
I can run out of time
I can spend like a fool

I can use all my senses
And lose them as well
I can waste this great life
And go straight to hell

But I cannot deplete the love of God
He has so much grace for me
When I think all His lost
He says I paid the cost
His great love has set me free

Lord, help me to lose my own life
So that I can start living yours
Because this life is like a vapor
I want to be on the right course

Sweet Victory

We were not born for heartache
We were not born for pain
We were not born for suffering
We were not born for shame

We were not born for trials
We were not born for doom
We were not born for sorrow
We were born to overcome

Through all our disappointments
Through all of life’s hard tests
There’s someone walking with us
Who always wants our best

Jesus is our Champion
Our mighty victor strong
When He lives within us
We sing His victory song

I’m an overcomer
Through Jesus precious blood
No matter what I’m facing
His mercy is enough

He’ll walk me through the valleys
He’ll guide me day and night
When life is at its darkest
He’ll lead me to the light

I was born for victory
I was born to win
I was born to overcome
This flesh that lives within

I was born for Jesus
As He was born for me
From now on I will walk
In His sweet victory.

Trudging Along?

Many people go through life
Trudging from day to day
They don’t have a spring in their step
They are not quite sure of their way

The thing that there missing is easy
It’s a hope that is steadfast and sure
When we put all our trust in Jesus
That glimmer of hope is assured

In fact it’s no longer a glimmer
But a bright shining light up ahead
When Jesus is Lord and Savior
Then Heaven a bright light instead

So set your mind squarely on Jesus
Let Him be your guiding Light
No longer will life be just trudging
You’ll find it is sunny and bright

Lamb of God

Lamb of God so gentle
A dove would rest on you
A sign of your compassion for us all
Humble meek and lowly
You bowed and were baptized
You are God’s Son in whom He is well pleased

Lamb of God so humble
Ministered to all
Healed the sick and made the blind to see
Fed the multitude
Washed disciples’ feet
Gave your life to save humanity

Lamb of God so mighty
You sit upon the throne
Ten thousand times ten thousand worship you
Cherubim and Seraphim
Join the joyful throng
Holy, holy, holy is your name

Jesus Lamb of God
Sacrifice for all
Gave His life for me
Died upon the cross
Rose again to give
Eternal life to all
Blessed be your name
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God

 

He Called Me

He called me out of darkness
He called me into light
He called me out of sickness
He called me into life
He called me out of sorrow
He called me into joy
He called me out of worry
I trust Him evermore

He called me out of doubting
He called me into faith
He called me out of hurting
He called me into grace
He called me out of bondage
He called me to be free
He called me out of judgment
His mercy covers me

Oh what love He has for me
This love that pardoned me
This love that gave His life at Calvary
Oh what love he does provide
This love that’s so divine
This love He gave to me to give away

He called me out of this world
He called me to His side
He called me out of selfishness
Asks me to sacrifice
He called me from myself
To give my life away
He called me to be His
And love others every day

Oh what love He has for me
This love that pardoned me
This love that gave His life at Calvary
Oh what love he does provide
This love that’s so divine
This love He gave to me to give away

 

The Promise

The weather is not spring-like in Iowa this year
Along with frigid temperatures of snow we’ve had our share
But I know better weather is just around the bend
For God has made a promise that seasons will not end

One other promise He has made is always true as well
When we put our trust in Jesus our future will go well
For heaven is the promise He gives to all the saved
So ask Him to forgive you invite Him in today
