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.
 

Never Will I Ever Leave You

Never have I ever known a friend so faithful
Never have I ever known such joy
Never have I ever known a love unending
Never have I ever met one like you
 
CHORUS
Jesus what a name.  Name above all names
Mighty Redeemer. Healer of my soul
Jesus, Jesus. How I love that name
Never will I ever leave you
 
Never have I ever seen such healing power
Never have I ever seen such peace
Never have I ever seen a smile so radiant
Never have I ever met one like you
 
CHORUS

BRIDGE
You fill my heart with joy unspeakable,
Peace unmatchable, love undeniable (REPEAT)
Never will I ever leave you
 
CHORUS

Poured Out

I can’t imagine why He would come down
From His throne in the heavens above
To become a little baby in a manger
It was His love.  It was His love
 
I can’t imagine why He would spend time
With a group of ragged men He called His own
He taught them of the ways of His kingdom
It was His love.  It was His love
 
A love that knows no boundaries
‘A love that knows no end
A love that keeps on giving
A love that calls me friend
A love that gives itself away
A love that welcomes all
His love is more than I can know
His love is all in all
 
I can’t imagine why he would give His life
To take away my sin and my shame
Then he rose again to grant me eternal life
It was His love.  It was His love
 
Poured out through the ages.  Poured out on the earth
Poured out from His heart of hearts to all who find His worth
Poured out for our sins.  Poured out for our souls
The blood He shed was poured out by His love
 
A love that knows no boundaries
‘A love that knows no end
A love that keeps on giving
A love that calls me friend
A love that gives itself away
A love that welcomes all
His love is more than I can know
His love is all in all
 

Little Old Me

You’ll go to great lengths to bring me home
When I’ve lost my way and am alone
You’ll scale the highest mountain
Or swim the widest sea
Just to come find little old me
 
You see, I have a tendency to wander
And you have a love that’s fonder
So when I’ve turned to doubt
All you have shown me
You come rescue little old me
 
I know you’re my Savior.  I know you’re my friend
I know I can trust you.  Your love will not end
But little old me still wanders away
My heart is so glad that your love never fails
 
Lord help me when I seem to drift
Keep me afloat in the ship
The storm rages strong
In my own troubles sea
Send your peace to little old me
 
No height. No depth.  No distance too far
No height. No depth,  No distance too far
No height. No depth.  No distance too far
For your love to find me.  Your love will find me
Your love will find little old me

A New Hope

I was shackled
Held by the snare of the enemy
Only I did not know it
I did not feel the chains
The weight
The burden
I was enjoying the pleasure
The high of life
The solitude of my sin
Each day brought new pleasure
New darkness
New shadows in my life
I had no hope
I did not care about the future
Only today mattered
Only what made me feel good today
There was no god
No judge
No one that challenged my way
No one that helped me see where I was going
And I cared not
I had today
I had pleasure
I had money
I thought I was free
I was free to do what I wanted
When I wanted
How I wanted
No guidelines
No destiny
No path to follow
Just a long and winding road
That led nowhere
 
Then I heard a voice
It sounded faint and soft
It was almost a whisper
In a place where there was shouting
A preacher spouting fire and brimstone
A preacher telling me my destiny
Telling me where I was heading
A place of horror
A place of darkness
A place of fire
I was scared
For the first time I confronted myself
As if looking in a mirror
I sat in that seat
Knowing my destiny now
Knowing it was not a good place
Knowing I did not want to go there
And I heard that voice
That soothing gentle voice
In the middle of my chaos
In the midst of this turmoil in my head
He spoke words of kindness
Of love
Of mercy
Of grace
An I wanted to follow that voice
I wanted to abandon my previous path
And start a new course
A new destiny
A new hope
 
He said I was chosen
He came to me
I was not seeking Him
I was not looking for a change
I was not wanting a change
But He found me
A wandering sheep
Lost and alone in a sinful world
In a dark place
In a place of bondage and shame
He found me
He loosed the shackles
He untied my hands
He loosened my mind from the enemies control
He set my fee on a new path
With a  new destiny
A new hope
A new life
He made me His own
He made me righteous
He sanctified me
He cleaned me up
He set my feet on higher ground
To stay
 
Now I write what He speaks
Words of praise
Words of blessing
Words of  grace and mercy
Words of protection and provision
I write His words for you
His voice speaks to me
And I write
My mind is free from clutter
Free from the noises of the world
Free from the shackles of my sin
He has chosen me
I am not sure why
I am not sure where it will lead
But I am sure this is what he has asked
He has called me
To write His words
To share His message
His love
His compassion
To a lost and dying world
Many are where I once was
Many are lost or have lost their way
I can only pray
That one will hear
That one will listen
That I can plant one seed
Touch one life
With His love
His words
Because God so loved the world
He gave His only Son
If you believe in Him
Hope is yours
Love is yours
Peace is yours
Joy is yours
Eternal life is yours
Just ask Him to be your Savior
Allow Him to be your Lord
And the Kingdom of God is yours
