The Voice of My Savior

There are days when my heart grows weary
I don’t feel I can carry on
The worries of life overtake me
I can feel so all alone

Then I hear the voice of my Savior
Speaking softly in my ear
Gentle words of His blessed assurance
That He is always near

He gives me peace when there is no peace
He gives me joy when there is no joy
He gives me hope when all hope is gone
He sends His love to comfort my soul

When there’s no rest
When I’m not my best
He gives me His all
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

When I hear the voice of my Savior
I am lifted to higher ground
There’s no longer a need for anguish
His presence is in that sweet sound

I determine to spend my days seeking
His face and His will for me
In the hope that I’ll never grow weary again
In the quest for my destiny

He gives me peace when there is no peace
He gives me joy when there is no joy
He gives me hope when all hope is gone
He sends His love to comfort my soul

When there’s no rest
When I’m not my best
He gives me His all
Oh what a Savior
Oh what a friend

 

Plans

I often come up with wonderful plans
Of when I should go and when I should stand
But most of the time those plans are in place
I find myself falling flat on my face

I’m not very good at thinking real clear
The words that I say are not what they hear
My plan makes me say thing I should not
They cause those around me to grow rather hot

I cry to the Lord please help me to speak
It’s your words I want and your plan I seek
Whenever I revert to ways of my own
I find that I’m closer to being disowned

Your gentle sweet voice echoes soft in my ear
I quiet way down so you I can hear
You tell me to stop and follow your ways
Things will be better in upcoming days

I hope that I will learn something from this
That is my prayer and that is my wish
To follow His plan every day of my life
I will not get lost and peace will be mine

If you find you are wand’ring through life on your own
And the snares are around you outside or at home
Listen to Jesus and follow His plan
He’ll firmly guide you with His gentle hand
