Tune of Life

Every day I sound a tune
With all I say and all I do
What others see
And hear from me
Will tell them who I did choose

I used to sound a party song
And all my friends came right along
A song of doubt
My heart did shout
My life style made me feel alone

Now I sound out praise and joy
Every day I am employed
By His sweet grace
I have been saved
I now belong to Christ my Lord

We all are instruments in life
We play a tune from deep inside
I hope God holds
Your heart and soul
So you will play a tune of life

I Have the Answer

Are you tired
Tired from life’s battles
Tired from inner struggles
Tired of financial stress
Tired of people saying they will help
And they don’t
Tired of people making promises
And they don’t
Tired of hearing their excuses
Tired of bickering and complaining
Tired of backbiting and gossip
Tired of being tired
I have an answer for you
His name is Jesus
He will pick you up when you fall down
He will carry you when you can’t go on
He will give you strength when you are weak
He will give you mercy and grace
He will only say good things to you
He will lift you up in His arms
His everlasting arms
And care for you as His own
Come to Jesus
He is your answer

Are you troubled
Troubled by the things of this world
Troubled by weather that doesn’t cooperate
Troubled by people coming against you
Telling lies about you
Cheating you
Stealing hope from you
Stealing peace from you
Stealing joy from you
Troubled by circumstances you can’t control
Troubled by shattered hopes and dreams
Troubled about being stuck in the same spot
Seeming to go nowhere
At a dead end in life it seems
Losing momentum to go forward
And drifting away from your own path
Are you troubled by trouble
I have an answer for you
His name is Jesus
He can calm the storm
He can stop the waves from coming against you
He can calm the wind from tossing you about
He has a plan for you
A good plan
A plan to give you an expected end
A plan for prosperity and good success
He will lead you beside still waters
He will lead you to green pastures
He will guide you by His Spirit
He will bring you out of the wilderness
Into a land flowing with milk and honey
Come to Jesus
He is your answer

Are you lonely
In a world full of people
All alone
No one seems to care
No one wants to help
No one sees your suffering
Hurting
Dying inside
All alone even when with someone
They don’t see you
They don’t hear your cry for help
They don’t answer when you need them
Plenty of Facebook friends
But no friends
No one to stand in the gap for you
No one who prays for you daily
No one who shows they really care
Are you all alone and lonely
I have an answer for you
His name is Jesus
He will never leave you
Or forsake you
He will come alongside and comfort you
He will fill your heart with joy and peace
He will talk with you in the dark of the night
He will be there when no one else will
He will be in your thoughts
He will be in your dreams
He will be at your work
He will be at your bedside
He will walk with you in the way
He will be with you when you rise up
He will be with you when you lie down
He will be with you when you take nourishment
He will always be there
To hear your prayers
He will not hide from you
He will not ignore you
He will not walk away from you’
He will always be right there
Come to Jesus
He is your answer

Bird Song

I hear the stringed instruments of chamber music
I hear the sweet jazz of battling horns
I hear the hard rumble of rock and roll singers
I hear the fun tickle of bluegrass accords

But nothing compares to before the sunlight
When the birds sing mellifluous tunes
The praise that they sing reaches heaven above
On a beautiful day in June

Wonder of Wonders

Stars shining bright
Sprinkle the night
Far distant light
Glorious sight

Flowers that bloom
Thunderstorms loom
Threatening doom
Late afternoon

Wonder of wonders Jesus provides
King of creation came here to die
Lord of Lords pardoned my sin and my shame
Wonder of wonders Jesus His name

Lungs breathing air
Eyes focused here
Ears that do hear
Body so dear

He put this vessel together
That I would bring glory to Him
All I can do is lift up His name
And give all my praises to Him

Wonder of wonders Jesus provides
King of creation came here to die
Lord of Lords pardoned my sin and my shame
Wonder of wonders Jesus His name

Forever and a Day

Always is a long time forever and a day
Always stays right with you it never goes away
Always is a promise Jesus gave us way back when
He said I am with you always until the very end

Always takes us further than our minds can fully grasp
Always will be real to you if you will stop and ask
Always says there’s no time that he is not with you
He said I’m with you always His word is always true

Longer then eternity
Longer then all time
Longer than our life on earth
Always He is mine
Longer then the trials that come
Longer than my pain
Always will be with me
Again and again

Today I will remember the promise that He made
That always He is with me His love will never fade
His joy and peace will follow and always they will stay
His mercy will be present surrounding His sweet grace

And when the day is done
And the sun has gone away
I’ll lift my voice up high
And give my Savior praise
For He has done great things for me
When I called on His name
That truth will never change
It will comfort me always

Longer then eternity
Longer then all time
Longer than our life on earth
Always He is mine
Longer then the trials that come
Longer than my pain
Always will be with me
Again and again

Touch Jesus Heart

Today we have a well-spring
Of brand new worship songs
It seems that heaven’s opened
For us to sing along
Our countenance is glad
As we raise our voices high
Our hearts in sheer delight
Our hands raise to the sky

I love this age of worship
I love new worship songs
The Lord is good to give me
Many of my own
Now I may seem quite archaic
When I say the old-time hymns
Still reach deep down inside me
And draw me  close to Him

The Old Rugged Cross
I Surrender All
Victory In Jesus
My soul these songs call

He Hideth My Soul
To God Be The Glory
Great is Thy Faithfulness
All tell His story

Blessed Assurance
Amazing Grace
Usher me in
To see His face

I know you have others
Quite dear to your heart
Let’s sing old and new
And touch Jesus heart

Psalmist Musings 1

I will lift my voice to praise my God
I will declare His goodness in all the earth
For He has walked with me through the valley
And held my hand in the pit of destruction
Great is His love for me
When I was in my deepest trial
He comforted me with His words
His voice spoke softly in my ears
I will continually lift my worship to Him
For His mercy endures forever
He will not fail me
Nor will He let me fail
But He will bring me through the storm
Through the wind and the rains
The torrential rains and fierce lightning
Through it all I will exalt Him
And He will quide me safely
For His love for me never fails
And His grace lifts me up.

Glory Abounds

They turn up the volume
When driving their car
The music blares loudly
The ground trembles hard

That bass beat repeats
As the sound echoes on
I try to zone out
But I’m deaf from the pound

Then I have an idea
I turn up the sound
I roll down the window
The music comes loud

High and majestic
Holy is He
Lord of Creation
Full of mercy

High Hallelujahs
Worship the King
Crank out the praises
His glory we sing

This world can’t compete
With that heavenly sound
When we sing His praises
His glory abounds
