Heaven’s Delight

He God commanded the Light to shine
The first day of creation
The fourth day the Sun moon and stars were made
He placed each in their station

So what was the Light that He made first
The one that He spoke into being
It was the Word of God come to illuminate all
From the darkness that had been reigning

Still today the sun moon and stars do shine
Dividing the day and the night
The first Light is still there to show us the way
From hell fire to heaven’s delight

Look to the Light of the World today
Jesus Christ the Word made flesh
He’ll take all your sorrows and sins away
And cover you with His grace

Draw Me

Draw me nearer
Nearer and nearer
Walk with me in the way

Draw me higher
Higher and higher
Lift me to heaven’s gates

Jesus you’re all I need
Jesus you’re all my heart desires
Jesus you are my Lord and King
Keep me close by your side

Draw me closer
Closer and closer
Into your warm embrace

Draw me farther
Farther and farther
Along the path of grace

As I lift my hands in worship
As I lift my voice in praise
Teach me all your wondrous statutes
Help me learn to know your ways

Jesus you’re all I need
Jesus you’re all my heart desires
Jesus you are my Lord and King
Keep me close by your side

What is Life?

What is life
Why are we here on this earth
An earth filled with strife
An earth filled with fear

What should we do
With this life we’ve been given
With all we’ve been through
While we’ve been living

I cannot answer for you my friend
But I know the answer I found
The definition of why I am here
Is to tell of my Saviors love

When I was lost He called to me
He loved me even in my lost estate
He died on a cross a long time ago
That from my despair I could escape

My life is now centered on Him
I must tell you all that He died for you
There’s no one that He cannot save from their sin
Won’t you accept His great love for you

Cry out to Jesus forgive me my Lord
I give you my sin please save me today
He’ll gather you up in His loving arms
You’ll be His child for all of your days

Transformation

I’ve had a change of lifestyle

Through the last 40 years
I’ve walked through hills and valleys

I’ve shed a lot of tears

My life before was earthly
Filled with drugs and drink
My mind was in the gutter
My tongue spewed only stink
But then I met my Savior
He washed my sins away
He’s changed my life completely
Now mercy fills my days
There’s still vestigial sins
That haunt my tongue and mind
Every day I ask the Lord
To free me from my pride
For pride us what will keep me
From giving all to Him
When I control this heart of mine

My Friend

He dries my eyes when sorrow brings a tear
He calms my heart when I am full of fear
He lends an ear for each and every prayer
His name is Jesus what a friend

He speaks to me when I feel all alone
He shows the way when I begin to roam
He hears my cry when I am far from home
His name is Jesus what a friend

He’s such a friend to me
He meets my every need
He’s by my side
He never hides
My friend He’ll always be

He brings a smile to my face each day
He holds His hand out showing me the way
He always knows the right words he should say
His name is Jesus what a friend

In my darkest times He never leaves me
When my hope is gone He will assure me
Of I go astray He’s sure to find me
He’s just that kind of friend
He’s just that kind of friend

He’s such a friend to me
He meets my every need
He’s by my side
He never hides
My friend He’ll always be

Fake News

This world is full of guessing
What the truth is and is not
The news around the world
Seems often to be bought

Two sides that can’t agree
On what course they should take
Makes for a lot of wordplay
That makes the truth seem fake

There’s one thing that I know
Will always speak the truth
That is the Holy Bible
God’s Word to me and you

It tells me Jesus came earth
And gave His life away
A sacrifice for all my sins
So He could make a way

No oversimplification
Is in these words today
If you will ask forgiveness
You too will find the way

His way is to eternal life
With Peace and joy for you
The fake news that appears down here
Gives way to God’s good news

What Glorious Things

If i could see the future what would my eyes perceive
I’d likely see much more than my mind could now conceive
If i could know what’s planned for all of us who do believe
What glorious things I’d witness on that day

I’d see a band of elders gathered round the throne of God
Cherubim and Seraphim would fill the sky aloft
Singing holy holy holy with their voices sounding loud
What glorious songs I’d sing with them that day

I’d see the Lamb of God who gave His life to save my soul
He’s the only one that’s worthy to open heavens scrolls
The worship choir praises Him and loud hosannas roll
What glorious things I’d hear them sing that day

I’d see the vials and the scrolls pronounce the wrath of God
I’d hear the trumpets sound aloud from angels in the clouds
I’d see the beast be lifted up and worshipped from the crowd
What glorious truth I’d know He’d do that day

I’d see Him riding a white horse His countenance so bright
He’s leading heaven’s army to a victory in the fight
I’d see the supper of the lamb prepared for birds of prey
What a glorious triumph I would see that day

I’d see the lake of fire and the beast be thrown within
I’d smell brimstone and ashes as he plunged to death from sin
I’d see the saints of God whose name the book contains
What glorious things He’d have for us that day

I’d see the new Jerusalem descending from above
I’d see the streets of gold and gates of pearl be opened up
I’d see the healing of the lands because of His great love
What glorious things await us on that day

Most of all I’d see my Savior Lamb of God is He
I’d see the one who came to earth and gave His life for me
I know these visions are the way the future’s meant to be
What glorious things He has in store that day

If you don’t know my Jesus and haven’t made Him Lord
The time is now my friend He should not be ignored
Cry out to Him for mercy he will here your cry and more
What glorious things your life will know that day

 

His Child Forever

I have come a long way in my life
Yet I still have a long way to go
I’m learning His ways
There’s more every day
That He has to walk me through

When I started I knew very little
Just what I had learned in my youth
I made Him my Lord
Which brought a reward
He started to teach me the truth

His mercy is divine
His grace is amazing
His love overwhelms me
Jesus my Lord
His peace fills my spirit
His joy lifts my sorrows
His hope lasts forever
Jesus my Lord

Even when I start to wander
He never gives up on me
He calls out my name
He holds me again
His child forever I’ll be

And in the darkest days He’s there
Calming every storm
Leading me to safety when I’m scared
There’s a lesson to be learned
In every trial of life
Just ask the Lord to show you the way

His mercy is divine
His grace is amazing
His love overwhelms me
Jesus my Lord
His peace fills my spirit
His joy lifts my sorrows
His hope lasts forever
Jesus my Lord
