I Tried

I tried to find wisdom
In things of this world
But soon i realized
That none was quite real

I tried to find peace
Instead chaos reigned
I tried to find joy
But sorrow prevailed

I tried to gain riches
But still I felt poor
No matter how much
I still wanted more

I tried to find hope
But doom filled my life
I tried to find love
Bit it always slipped by

Then I met Jesus
I learned that He died
He paid for my sins
He gave me new life
Now there is only
One thing that I try
That’s to follow my Savior
Until I should die

I know He will give me
All of these things
If I will remain
Everyday close to Him

Enemy Under Control

I’ve done a lot of things in the course of my life
From sales to flipping burgers and a manager at times
Through many of my years my life was ruled by pride
So often I would fool myself to thinking sin would hide

You see I was a hypocrite who lived a different life
In Jesus days the Pharisees were what I would be like
I’d masquerade as righteous while I lived a life of lies
Then one day I was challenged to bring my life in line

I finally realized that my life was full by pride
I learned to bring that enemy under control in time
Now I live my life by the words of Jesus Christ
In Him I will forever more abide

You Are My Wonderful

You are my wonderful
Wonderful Savior
You are my wonderful
Wonderful Lord
You are my wonderful
Precious redeemer
You are my wonderful wonderful
Wonderful wonderful Lord

So I will lift my hands
I will lift my voice
To worship you
To worship you
And I will bow my head
In you I will rejoice
For you are wonderful
Wonderful Lord

Judgment Day

The heavens shall be open
A white horse shall appear
The man who sits upon him
Brings both judgment and war

His eyes are like a fire
His head bore many crowns
Clothed in garments dipped in blood
The Word of God He’s called

The armies of all heaven
Will follow Him this day
White horses will they ride upon
White garments will array

The fowls of the earth are called
To feast upon all flesh
And all who do remain on earth
Will meet a forecast death

If you are not familiar
With the words I’ve written here
Revelation nineteen ten
Is where you start to read

I do not share to frighten to
Because not all are doomed
There is a way of being saved
From all this talk of gloom

Make Jesus Christ your Lord and King
He is the only way
To be in heaven on this day
Won’t you be saved today

I Run to You

When the battle is raging and my strength is almost gone
I have run out of weapons and I feel all alone
There is one who remains who will always be true
I open my heart and I run to you

When my health goes to pieces and I feel a bit lame
I can get to the point that death seems an escape
There is one who remains that can heal every pain
I open my eyes and I run to you

I run to you
I run to you
You stand with arms open wide
Inviting me to come to you
I run to you
I run to you
And you hold me and bring me peace

I can always trust your mercy
I can always trust your grace
So when life gets out of hand
I turn to you with no disgrace

I run to you
I run to you
You stand with arms open wide
Inviting me to come to you
I run to you
I run to you
And you hold me and bring me peace

I’m Here Lord

I’m here Lord
Waiting to hear your voice
I’ve already made the choice
To follow you

I’m here Lord
Tell me about your plan
I’ll give it all I can
And worship you

I will give all my heart
I will give all my soul
I will give all my strength
To you
I will give all my heart
I will give all my soul
I will give all my strength
To you

I love you Lord
I love you Lord
I love you Lord
I love you Lord

The Only Way

I find it funny that some people think
That all we have is life on earth
And others think we will come back in some form
So that our life will have more worth

Still others think they must do good deeds to earn
A place in the heavens above
And others think all have been rescued from hell
Whatever they do is enough

It seems so bizarre to me
That Jesus died on a tree
So that all of us could be free
If we did not have a choice

If God would save everyone
Then why would He send His son
Why not just have it be done
By the sound of His mighty voice

After all the whole world was made
By His voice in just 6 days
Couldn’t He make us all saved
So we could all rejoice

When you think about what God has done for us
And how He has showed us His grace
Than you’ll know that accepting His Son as our Lord
Is truly the only way

Every Day Counts

We’ve all been given so many years
So many tears will we shed
Our life on this earth
Begins with our birth
And lasts until this flesh is dead

After this flesh has expired
Eternity waits just ahead
How we’ve behaved
Determines our fate
Heaven’s joy or a hell we would dread

Every day counts
Every word relates
Every action has been written down
If you’ve gone amiss
Think hell does not exist
In hell’s fire you’ll eventually drown

There is only one way to escape
From the fury of hell that awaits
Trust Jesus today
He’s the only way
To make heaven you’re home that day

Down on your knees
Repent of your sin
Ask for forgiveness
Ask Jesus in
Into your heart
Confess Him as Lord
Believe He arose
And go sin no more

Every day counts
Every word relates
Every action has been written down
If you’ve gone amiss
But then you’ve confessed
Heaven’s doors will await with a crown

Walking with Jesus

I have walked many places in my life
In the valleys and the mountains and the woods
I have seen many sights
I have taken many flights
And through all of it my life has been quite good

Walking through childhood was fun and games
Walking through the teens i was bored
Then i walked through drugs
And booze and many lusts
Before I started walking with the Lord

There’s nothing like walking with Jesus
He guides me through every mistake
And when I go astray
He helps find my way
He’ll carry me if that’s what it takes

Walking with my Lord brings peace and joy
Walking with my Lord brings hope
He brings me new life
Through His great sacrifice
His love is walking with me as I go

There’s nothing like walking with Jesus
He guides me through every mistake
And when I go astray
He helps find my way
He’ll carry me if that’s what it takes

 

Many Laughs

I once was a man full of laughter
I was happy for moments in time
I used many laughs through my years
But I never knew which one was mine

Sometimes I’d burst out a HA
Other times snickers were good
A guffaw a cackle or giggle
I’d laugh just as loud as I could

But all of this laughter was surface
I was hurting deep down inside
Because happiness lasts for a moment
After that sadness ruled my life

But then I met Jesus my Savior
He cleansed me from all of my sin
His peace settled into my spirit
He brought me true joy within

Now I have this joy forever
It’s not for a moment and gone
If always sad in your spirit
Look to Jesus and true joy will come
