All the Glory to You

We come into your house today
Into your presence with our praise
We lift our voices high
You’re name we magnify
All the glory to you
All the glory to you

Exalted to the highest place
We long to gaze into your face
Our worship fills the air
You fill the atmosphere
All the glory to you
All the glory to you
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
All the glory to you

He Came Back For Me

As a child I grew up in church so many years ago
As a teen I turned my back on God and wandered
In my early twenties I had truly lost my way
My life was heading down a lonely path

My mind had become mixed up from the things that I was taking
My body was a scrawny, hippie mess
Most people thought that I was destined to be left behind
Then suddenly my life was turned around

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
Abd that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

Over forty years ago this all happened in my life
I have never turned my back on Him again
And I know if you have walked away and found you’re lost
That He’ll come back for you just the same

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

He doesn’t ask us where we’ve been
He doesn’t ask us what we did
He doesn’t ask us why we left
He doesn’t ask us why we hid
He tells us that He loves us
He wraps His arms around us
He asks us to be His
And I chose to be His because

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

This poem/song was inspired by Rev. Robert Newton speaking to an APEPT convention 5 years ago. I was prompted to watch the message today on YouTube. Here is the link

I Know A God

I know a God who cares for me
Through the dark and windy storm
I know a God who comforts me
When my days are far from calm
I know a God who carries me
When all my strength is gone
I know a God who stays with me
When I am all alone

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

I know a God who took my place
And took away my sin
I know a God who gives me grace
And gives me peace within
I know a God who rose from death
So I could live with Him
I know a God who rules above
He is the King of Kings

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

This God that I serve is merciful
This God that I serve is gracious
This God that I serve forgives me
This God that I serve delivers me
This God that I serve protects me
This God that I serve provides for me
This God that I serve is everything
That I could ever need

His name is Jesus
Mighty Warrior
Jehovah
Lamb of God
Emmanuel
Always with us
His name is Jesus
Lord of all

Misunderstood

Some people will believe a lie instead of seeking truth
Some people will tell gossip tales that end up harming you
Some people drink their alcohol each night so they feel good
Some people do their harmful drugs and stay misunderstood

Some people think it’s quite alright to swear in Jesus name
Some people think that causing pain is all just fun and games
Some people cannot say a word unless they swear and curse
Some people will refuse to listen and their life just gets worse

None of this is natural
It’s not what we’re made for
This world has got it all wrong
When His word they do ignore
We were made to walk with Him
In the garden He prepared
So put aside your wicked ways
And praise His name instead

A Sanctuary

I awoke this Monday morning
Looking forward to the day
I rose to greet the sunrise
As it lightened up the gray
I ate a bit of breakfast
With coffee on the tray
Then I walked out of my house
And I began to say

Thank you, Lord for giving me
Your mercy on this day
Thank you Lord, for your sweet grace
Which blesses me always
Thank you Lord for peace of mind
Provided by your grace
Thank you for the joy you give
And hope that always stays

Thank you Lord for this creation
Beautiful and wise
Thank you Lord for singing birds
Filling up the skies
Thank you Lord for flowers and trees
Colors for my eyes
Thank you Lord for loving me
And helping me through trials

As I finished my short song
Of praise unto my King
I thanked Him once again
For providing everything
And in that moment I could feel
The Spirit praises bring
My porch became a santcuary
For the King of Kings

The One

I think of all the things that God has done

Through Jesus Christ His one an only Son

Ìn awe I stand Amazed

At the wonder of His ways

I read His word and know that He’s the one

The one who saved my soul

The one who ser me free

The one who rose for me

Ths one who made me whole

The one who took my sin

The one who dwells within

The one who healed my pain

The one whose peace I gained

The one who guides my day

The one who makes a way

The one who holds my hand

The one who has a plan

The one who answers prayer

The one whose always there

Now I sing hallelujah to the Lamb

Glory, glory, glory to the great I am

Ali lift up all my praise

To honor His sweet name

Jesus Christ whosw honor I proclaim

Priceless Love

I’m turning my life over to the one that I adore
His name is Jesus Christ and He’s the Lord of Lord’s
He died to heal my body and take away my sin
Then He rose up from the grave and now He lives within

I’ve tried to live my own way and made a mess of things
My own decisions always leave my soul without blessing
My wisdom just gets me into a prideful state of mind
And the knowledge that I have puts my spirit in a bind

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love

When I begin to trust in Him my life seems to make sense
Even though my troubles sometimes get much more intense
He’s with me through each trial and He shows me the way
Because He cares for me and guides me through each blessed day

His blessings follow me around and seem to never cease
His mercy comes to flood my soul and leave my mind at peace
His grace is overwhelming as He clears up my mistakes
Then He leaves His joy within me love,Jesusso that others might partake

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love

Stooping down from His throne
He hears my every plea
Because He is my Savior
Who bled and died for me

Oh the priceless love of Jesus
Flowing down from heaven above
Never ceasing always with me
I will rest in His sweet love

Magnificent

Clothed in the clouds He comes
Mighty and Merciful He comes
All power and authority in Him
All will bow their knee to Him

Riding a white horse He comes
To judge all the nations He comes
Our salvation is only in Him
Our victory was provided by Him

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
Magnificent
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world
Magnificent

In radiant glory He comes
With sound of trumpet He comes
Will you be found in Him
Is all your trust in Him

The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is
The only way
The only truth
The only light
He is

He is Jesus
Full of wonder
Crowned with splendor
Magnificent
He is Jesus
Eternal Savior
Light of the world
Magnificent

Peace Sweeps Over Me

He’s the anchor for my soul
When the storms of doubt arise
He comes in and clears the skies
And my heart He floods with joy

He becomes my breath and wind
When the sea is churning deep
Calms the sky and stills the sea
I soar above on eagle’s wings

Everything I need to survive
All that I could ever need
He supplies abundantly
Until His peace sweeps over me

He is guiding me across
When I just can’t see my way
I will see another day
He will never leave me lost

Through the storm
Across the sea
Above the waves
Safe from the deep
Stills the wind
Billows stay
I will live
Another day

Everything I need to survive
All that I could ever need
He supplies abundantly
Until His peace sweeps over me

Keeper of My Soul

Through the endless night I wake
Hoping to get back to sleep
Yet in these tired hours I know
That I can trust my soul He keeps

And when I finally rise from bed
My feet are planted on the floor
The first thing that my mind recalls
He once again has kept my soul

Keeper of my soul
Fill my spirit new
As I rise this day
Keep my mind on you
Lead me in your way
Every step I take
Jesus Christ
The keeper of my soul

I look into the mirrored face
And see my image needs repair
I hope that others will this day
See my Lord residing there

Every action that now flows
Is a sign that truly speaks
Make my life be one that shows
My Lord Jesus my soul keeps

Keeper of my soul
Fill my spirit new
As I rise this day
Keep my mind on you
Lead me in your way
Every step I take
Jesus Christ
The keeper of my soul

Fill my mouth
Fill my mind
Fill my heart
With you
Every step
Every word
Every thought
With you

Keeper of my soul
Fill my spirit new
As I rise this day
Keep my mind on you
Lead me in your way
Every step I take
Jesus Christ
The keeper of my soul
