God Brought a Friend

When I need a kind word, you are there
When I need a smile, you are there
When I wake up in the morning
When I go to sleep at night
I know you are there for me

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

When my day gets tired and lonely, you are there
When I need someone to talk to, you are there
When I find a little time
When I need some sunshine
I know you are there for me

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

I know that God has purposes for all He gives to us
I know He puts all things in place to turn out for my good
So, I will put my faith in Him a little more today
For He has brought a friend like you help me on my way

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

I Will Wait On You

 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me strength
 You lift me up above the tempest
 You set my feet on higher ground
 You instill peace down in my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me health
 You favor me with your loving breath
 You smile on me as I recover
 You breath life into my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 For you give me purpose
 You guide me through hard places
 You show me the path to take
 You whisper to my soul
  
 I wait on you Lord
 You are my all in all
 You are my heart's desire
 You are my everything
 So I wait.

Grace is Greater

 His grace is greater
 Than all my troubles
 He watches o’er me
 When I fall down
  
 His grace is greater
 Than all my weakness
 He keeps me floating
 When I could drown
  
 His grace is greater
 Than all my struggles
 He walks beside me
 When I’m alone
  
 His grace is greater
 Than my temptations
 He speaks so softly
 And gives me hope
 Just enough for today
 And not for tomorrow
 Yesterday’s grace is gone
 Day after day
 Like the manna from heaven
 I have to depend on Him
  
 Grace, grace, Great grace
 Greater than all my life could need
 Grace, grace
 God’s grace
 Grace that is greater than anything. 

Beside Me

 Today I can say how good it is
 To sleep in my house 
 To lay in my bed
 To rest in my living room
 With the one I love beside me
 It was lonely when we were apart
 It was hard to sleep
 It was uncomfortable to rest 
 It was unusual in its waiting
 With one beside me now and then
 Our Father in heaven gave his son
 To be born in a Manger
 To die on a cross
 To forgive our sins and give us life
 So we could be with Him eternally
 He cries to us 
 Come, rest in my peace
 Come, lay in my arms
 Come, be with me forever
 For you are the one I love
 If you don't know Jesus
 As your Lord and Savior
 Why not ask Him today to forgive you
 Ask Him into your heart
 And He will save your soul
 And you will be with Him
 Forever. 

How He Loves Me So

 I long for the sound of His voice
 Teaching me how to rejoice
 He whispers so clear
 In my spiritual ear
 Hoping I'll make the right choice
  
 I long for the touch of His hand
 Confirming the path of His plan
 As he gently leads
 And quietly pleads
 He urges me to understand
  
 He loves me, more than I can know
 He loves me, and promises to show
 His grace is complete
 As I sit at His feet
 Oh, How He loves me so
  
 I long to see His face
 To feel His warm embrace
 He's always right there
 To hear every prayer
 He leads me inside heavens gates
  
 I long to know His love
 Streaming down from above
 He dwells deep inside
 In my heart he abides
 His spirit descends like a dove
  
 He loves me, more than I can know
 He loves me, and promises to show
 His grace is complete
 As I sit at His feet
 Oh, How He loves me so
  
 I shout Hallelujah to His name
 Glorious Hallelujahs to His name
 His praises I sing
 My worship I bring
 My voice cries blessed be His name
 My voice cries blessed be His name
   

Amazing, Incredible Love

 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He came to earth to die?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 When He sacrificed His life?
 What kind of love did He have for me
 That I did not realize?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He had for me
  
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He walks with me each day?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That He guides me on my way?
 What kind of love does He have for me
 That I know He’s here to stay?
 Amazing, incredible love is what He has for me
  
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Even in the hardest times?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Would I die to give you life?
 What kind of love should I have for you
 Every time you cross the line?
 Nothing short of amazing
 Nothing short of incredible
 Nothing short of a miracle should be my love for you
   

Oh, Lord Most High

 Oh, Lord most High, you are merciful
 You brought me out of the grave
 I was dead in my transgressions
 Then all of my sins you forgave
  
 Oh, Lord Most High, you are gracious
 You pour out your blessings on me
 Peace and joy, hope and love are all mine
 As my heart is laid down at your feet
  
 Or, Lord most High, you are patient
 There is so much you want me to change
 My life is still not quite perfect
 My priorities you rearrange
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are loving
 Despite my enduring pride
 You allow these trials and temptations
 So that only in you I can hide
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are holy
 My desire is to be more like you
 Take my heart, my soul and my spirit
 Show me what you want me to do
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are worthy
 The praise of my lips I will give
 I will bow down at your footstool
 And love you as long as I live 

Life Abundantly

 I can’t explain this peace that washes over me
 Every time a troubled sea is in my soul
 It seems I put my trust in Him to guide me safely home
 Because I know my God is in control
  
 I can’t explain this joy that brings a smile to my face
 When tribulation rears its ugly head
 I know that He will teach me of His wondrous grace
 And everything will work out for my good
  
 I can’t explain this hope that says I’m bound for heaven
 I’ve put my faith in Jesus Christ
 He promised He was building me a mansion home
 A place to dwell through my eternal life
  
 I can’t explain the love that God has shown to me
 His wondrous plan I didn’t even know
 He gave His son to die for me amidst my sinful ways
 Remove them all and wash me white as snow
  
 Even though I can’t explain it still I know it’s true
 That God became a sacrifice tor me and you
 If there is just one thing you really need to do
 Is call upon His name and He will pardon you
  
 Your sin was nailed to His cross on calvary
 Forgiveness He has spoken hanging on that tree
 He rose again and to show us His great victory
 Come before the Lord and pray with me
  
 Father forgive me. Father I have sinned
 Father take my life. Give me joy within
 I now make you Lord of my life today
 Come and show me your precious ways
  
 If you prayed that prayer now you have life abundantly
 The Son of God has saved your soul today
 I pray you’ll go to church and read your Bible more
 So God can lead you safely on your ay
   

Adopted

 
 I’ve squandered my existence on things I should not do
 I’ve travelled many roads where I truly should not go
 I’ve spoken many words that I never should have said
 I’ve done so many things that should have left me dead
  
 One day I was just walking with a  friend of mine
 He told me about Jesus and His love sublime
 I thought about that message and bowed my head in prayer
 Jesus saved me from myself right then and there
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 Now I do my best to walk with Him each day
 Sometimes I wander off the path and lose my way
 Bet He is quick to rescue me and take me in His arms
 He never lets me suffer long or come to any harm
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 An heir of the kingdom, His promises are mine
 His will has been written and my name is on the line
 I’ll praise Him forever with all my heart and soul
 For he is my Savior and my Lord
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
   

If He Loves Me

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of my life bring trouble at every turn
If He loves me why do I tremble
at what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side and remove all the things that sting
 
Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sins?
Isn’t it enough that the comforter comes to settle your heart within?
All that this life will throw at you will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests try to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough
 
His love is always there.  It is always a comfort, always a resting place when trouble comes.  We don’t have to wonder if he loves us if we will just look at the cross.  Look at what he went through for you.  Look at how much He suffered because he loves you.  There is no pain greater than the pain of His heart breaking when the Father turned His head and darkness covered the sky.  He had never been separated from His Father, not for all eternity past.  And yet for three hours, He was covered with sin, and the Father could not look.  That is how much Jesus loves you and me.
 
When trouble surround you and it seems that a temptation is too hard to bear, get that picture of the cross in your mind.  Think about Jesus on that cross.  In your minds eye look at the blood dripping down from His brow.  Look at the tears in His flesh.  Look at the nails in His feet and hands.  Look at His love poured out.  This is the image that will get you through your tests and trials.  He loved you so much that he stretched out His hands and died for you.  Isn’t that enough?  Does He really need to do any more for you to show you His love?
 
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him would have everlasting life.
