Mercy Overwhelms

Every second of the day
Every moment when I pray
Every hour that goes away
His mercy overwhelms me

Every word that my mouth speaks
Every time His will I seek
Every day of every week
His mercy overwhelms me

Mercy at my every turn
Flows into my life
Mercy more than I can see
Helps me to survive
Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms

Every week that passes by
Every month that hears my cry
Every year for all of time
His mercy overwhelms me

Every breath
Every sound
Every touch
Every word
Every prayer
Every song
Every sight
Every thing

Mercy at my every turn
Flows into my life
Mercy more than I can see
Helps me to survive
Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms

Mercy grand and glorious
Like a wave that swells
Washes down all over me
Mercy overwhelms
Mercy overwhelms
Mercy overwhelms

Hairless

If I would shave off my mustache
Then shave all the hair from my head
I would look quite the same
As when cancer came
I my hair was found even in bed

I never needed a costume
To go out and trick or treat
With all that head clean
The difference was seen
By all who saw me on the street

But now it has all grown back
Better than ever I think
God has been good
His mercy has stood
With me through thick and through thin

I’m in remission now
I feel quite terrific in fact
Just 8 short more months
For chemo maint’nance
I’ll be cured of cancer at last

 

In response to the daily prompt Costume

Mercy Will Wash Over Me

Your mercy endures forever
Forever your mercy will be
When I have sinned
When I struggle within
Your mercy will wash over me

I find myself seeking refuge
From sins that have plagued me before
My hope is in you
You’ll carry me through
Your mercy is what I long for

Jesus, my Lord and Savior
Merciful Lord unto me
Jesus, my King and my Shepherd
Your mercy will wash over me

When darkness has entered my life
When I can’t seem to find my way out
You come to my aid
I become unafraid
Your mercy makes my heart to shout

Glory and honor and blessing
To Jesus my praise lifted high
Power and might and dominion
Jesus I glorify

Jesus, my Lord and Savior
Merciful Lord unto me
Jesus, my King and my Shepherd
Your mercy will wash over me

What Love

I am convinced
Fully persuaded
Knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt
With full faith
And all belief
That Jesus loves me
More than I can comprehend
More than I deserve
More than I can express
In simple words
His love for me was evident
On that day so long ago
When He talked to His disciples in the upper room
When he told them he would be leaving them
When He washed their feet
Stooping down before them
Towel and basin by His side
Wiping the dust ad grime off
Drying them carefully
When He gave them the bread
Saying this is my body
Broken for you
He gave them the wine
Saying this is my blood
Poured out for you
They walked to the garden
As He taught them
His final words to them
He prayed
While they slept
Submitting to the Father’s will
Soldiers came
He surrendered to them
Trial came
He was silent
Scourging came
He bore the stripes
Crown of thorns came
He offered His brow
Beaten and bruised
He gave His body
Trial before Pilate
He humbled Himself
Carried His cross
Though His body was worn
Nailed through His hands and feet
Onto the tree
Crucified between thieves
Took on our sins
Gave up His life
It was not taken from Him
Placed in a borrowed tomb
Sealed with a stone
What a gift he has given
When he gave Himself
For my sin
For my shame
For my guilt
For my pardon
Oh what mercy
Oh what grace
Oh what love

He Covered Me

I will not be denied
The blessings of the Lord
He’s laid them out for all the world to see
I’ll seek His will each day
I’ll draw close to His side
Then I’ll become what he wants me to be

Mercy flowing freely
For His mercy covered me
I’ll always see the best in everyone
Grace that covers mistakes
For His grace has covered me
Forgiving and forgetting those things done

Joy that never ceases
For His joy has covered me
No matter what the test I still feel blessed
Peace that calms my spirit
For His peace has covered me
The storms of life all pass me as I rest

Hope for life eternal
For His hope has covered me
Nothing can distract me from my goal
Love that knows no bounds
For His love covered me
The love of God will fill my heart and soul

Then when the day is over
When the sun is settling down
I will know that all these blessings guide my life
I’ll climb into my bed
Then I’ll lift my praise to God
For keeping me attracted to His light

I will not be denied
The blessings of the Lord
He promised them for all the world to see
You too can claim them now
There close within your grasp
Just give your all each day
Make Him your only way
Then all these blessings will be yours to keep

Sweet is His love for me
Sweet mercy given so free
Love was nailed onto a tree
Raised high so all could see

Never above redemption
Always forgiveness I need
Sinner within
Finds comfort in Him
Daily I bow at His feet

Never above His calling
Always beholding to Him
Every new day

He Came Down

Down from above
Bringing His love
The Savior came on Christmas day
Babe in the hay
Quiet He lay
While angels proclaimed His praise

Shepherds rejoiced
They heard Angels voice
To Bethlehem they made their way
Bowing in honor
Glory forever
To Jesus who came as a babe

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

I cannot imagine
His love I can’t fathom
That He would give up His throne
His birth was obscure
His life was a blur
Only three years was this earth His home

From lowly beginning
To triumphant King
He had to give all he had
His death on the cross
Was such a great loss
But victory came in the end

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

Emmanuel
God with us
The form of a babe
The Lord of Lords lay
Ready to redeem us all

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

Multiplied  

I gave the Lord my sorrow
Everything that hurt
I left it all in Jesus loving hands
He gave me peace to soothe my soul
A thousand times more grace 
Now I find rest where trouble used to land 

I gave the Lord my weakness 
My will would always lose 
I yielded up myself to find His way 
He said He had a plan for me
A thousand times more grace 
Now His strength guides me every single day

Multiplied blessings
Multiplied grace 
Multiplied mercy 
Multiplied praise 
Whatever I give Him 
He gives me more 
Reversing my sorrow
Releasing His joy 

I gave the Lord my passions
They’d fail me every time
I turned my heart completely to love Him 
He told of His love for me
A thousand times more grace 
My passion now is only found in Him

The more of me I give Him 
The more of Him He gives 
The more I lose myself
The more His Spirit lives 
I cannot out give Him 
He gives His all to me
The more I love my Savior 
The more like Him I’ll be

Multiplied blessings
Multiplied grace 
Multiplied mercy 
Multiplied praise 
Whatever I give Him 
He gives me more 
Reversing my sorrow
Releasing His joy
