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

At The Foot Of The Cross – Music Video

I wrote this song back in 2014 and am truly hopeful that one day it will be in a hymnal somewhere.  It is a beautiful Good Friday or Easter hymn about the precious blood of Jesus.  Here are the words and the video (the best I can do with my limited talent)

At the foot of the cross, the blood drips down
From the nails in his feet and the thorns in his brow
A crimson pool gathers there on the ground
At the foot of the cross.

There is forgiveness at the foot of the cross
Mercy unending, at such a great cost
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross

At the foot of the cross, my tears pour out
I am free from my fear, free from my doubt
I found a Savior to turn me about
At the foot of the cross

There is forgiveness at the foot of the cross
Mercy unending, at such a great cost
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross

At the foot of the cross, I now kneel in prayer
To my wonderful savior, who died for me there
He has risen to Heaven, and will soon take me there
From the foot of the cross.

There is forgiveness at the foot of the cross
Mercy unending, at such a great cost
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross

I Want to Thank You Lord (Music Video)

This is my favorite of all the choruses and songs I have written.  I can’t begin to tell you the comfort it gave me while going  through to stem cell transplants in 2016.  My church loves it, and my Pastors wife adores this song.  I hope it blesses you a well.
