I’ll Always Come Back

When it seems all is lost
And I feel all alone
That’s when I come crawling to you
When my sorrow grows dark
And my peace disappears
That’s when I come crawling to you

I can feel you draw near me
I can sense your sweet grace
That’s when I come walking to you
In the still of the night
Is the sound of your voice
That’s when I come walking to you

In your presence is mercy
Your face is all love
That’s when I come running to you
The closer I draw
The more wonders I feel
That’s when I come running to you

Then your joy overtakes me
Your peace rests my soul
That’s when I come leaping to you
My voice singing praises
To your wondrous name
That’s when I come leaping to you

I come crawling
I come walking
I come running
I come leaping
Whatever the trial
Whatever the test
I’ll always come back to you

Mercy and Grace

He’ll Hear My Prayers

Over and over and over again
I try to find peace in this world of pain
I look all around and what do I see
But the devil surrounding and hindering me

He snorts and he glares to make me fear
He brings me more troubles than I can bear
And just when I feel he is making me doubt
I dry out to Jesus and He pulls me out

There’s nothing the devil can do to me
That Jesus won’t fix and give me peace
If I’ll just come to Him down on my knees
He’ll hear my prayers every time

That old enemy just keeps coming back
Hoping my faith is broken and lax
But I have a surprise waiting for him
Jesus has built up my strength within

He raises up His Holy Spirit
Then I feel a surge of powerful word
Get thee behind me you scrawny old beast
I live with Jesus and he has you beat

There’s nothing the devil can do to me
That Jesus won’t fix and give me peace
If I’ll just come to Him down on my knees
He’ll hear my prayers every time

Heaven and Hell

Where Would I Be

If God were not merciful where would I be
I’m guessing I’d be dead for sin would kill me
My body would be buried under a tree
But my soul would be bound for hell

If God did not shed His grace where would I be
Most likely I would be without my family
I’d still be bound by the things that thrill me
Running around for the thrills

If God did not give His peace where would I be
Daily my worries would put fear in me
My hair would be gray and I would not be free
Most likely I’d hide in my shell

If God did not give me hope where would I be
I’d live for today and have constant parties
I would not care what tomorrow might bring
I certainly would not fear hell

If God did not live me where would I be
Lost in the depths of a sinful sea
Waves would be crashing in around me
And I would be bound for hell

Oh God you are merciful beyond degree
Your grace peace and hope are all around me
Your love reached my soul and has set me free
Now heaven is truly my home

I thank you dear Lord for setting me free
I thank you that I do not have to worry
I thank you that you sent your Son for me
Now I will live just for you

I Run to You

When the battle is raging and my strength is almost gone
I have run out of weapons and I feel all alone
There is one who remains who will always be true
I open my heart and I run to you

When my health goes to pieces and I feel a bit lame
I can get to the point that death seems an escape
There is one who remains that can heal every pain
I open my eyes and I run to you

I run to you
I run to you
You stand with arms open wide
Inviting me to come to you
I run to you
I run to you
And you hold me and bring me peace

I can always trust your mercy
I can always trust your grace
So when life gets out of hand
I turn to you with no disgrace

I run to you
I run to you
You stand with arms open wide
Inviting me to come to you
I run to you
I run to you
And you hold me and bring me peace

The Believers Life

Let My Words

Let my words be graceful every day
That whoever hears is blessed
Let me speak only what edifies
That the hearer will lift up his eyes

Let my words bring peace to troubled souls
Comfort in their darkest times
Let me speak only what soothes their pain
So that they might lift your name again

Let my words bring joy where sorrow lurks
That will bubble up inside
Let me speak only what brings a smile
To their saddened face for just a while

Let my words bring hope to those in doubt
That will build their confidence
Let me speak only what their souls need
So that once again through faith they’ll see

Let my words bring love to everyone
That they’ll know my Savior’s heart
Let me speak encouragement to them
That they’ll lift their praise to Him again

This poem was inspired by Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

He’s All You Need

Find peace in Jesus He settles your storms
When lightning is flashing you’ll feel no alarm
When you’re in a battle He will bring calm
Find peace in Jesus safe in His arm

Find joy in Jesus that bubbles inside
When life brings a test His joy will not hide
When all seems so wrong He will always abide
Find joy in Jesus He stays by your side

All that you need
All you desire
All that your heart
Will ever require
All that you long for
All your desire
He’s all you need
He’s all you need

Find hope in Jesus that never will die
When all seems lost He’ll lift up your eyes
When darkness comes His light will shine bright
Find hope in Jesus for all of your life

Then there’s His love
His wonderful love
It never gives up
It flows from above
His love is deep
His love is enough
Wonderful love
Wonderful love

All that you need
All you desire
All that your heart
Will ever require
All that you long for
All your desire
He’s all you need
He’s all you need
