Nowhere But The Cross

I’ve searched the whole world over to find an inner peace
I’ve travelled through the nations to find joy that would not cease
I’ve looked up to the heavens to find a hope that settled me
But I found these are nowhere but the cross
 
I put my trust in doctors to heal my earthly pains
I’ve worked through much exhaustion for money I could gain
I’ve been in plays and speeches to see if I’d find fame
But I found these are nowhere but the cross
 
CHORUS
The cross provides my healing
The cross provides my peace
The cross will give me joy that will never ever cease
The cross gives hope forever
And love eternally
If I want that life abundantly
There is nowhere but the cross
 
I’ve had dreams and premonitions that did not satisfy
All that I have wanted and all that I desire
Is to find that special place where Jesus does abide
And that is found nowhere but the cross
 
CHORUS

BRIDGE
Down on my knees before you
Down on my knees in prayer
Lifting up holy hands
Giving you all my praise
Humbly I ask forgiveness
Honestly open my heart
Come Holy Spirit and heal me
Here at the foot of the cross
 
CHORUS

ENDING
I want to find that special place
Where Jesus does abide
I know it’s found
Nowhere but the cross
Christmas Poetry

He Waits For Me

He waits for me
In the silence of the morning
As the sun is slowly rising
The gilded clouds are shining
The birds are loudly singing
The dark quickly dispelling
The dew is gently falling
As all the earth is waking
He waits for me

He waits for me
As life just gets to busy
My faith starts to get lazy
My doubt is rising slowly
The fear of failure lures me
The troubles loom around me
I’m not all I should be
I ifeel as if He’d left me
He waits for me

Silently
Quietly
Lovingly
Gracefully
He waits for me
Full of hope I’ll find my way
Full or mercy for me day
Love that drives all fear away
He waits for me

Slowly I begin to rise
Lift my praise up to the skies
Loft my head and set
my eyes
Upon Him waiting there

Then His peace comes over me
Peace that calms my raging seas
Back where I have longed to be
Beside my Lord and King

I know in your darkest hour
His love draws you by gracious power
I pray that you will find this true
He’s waiting there for you

Everywhere

I can see Him
in the brilliance of the sunrise
in the gilded skies at dawn
in the colors of the rainbow
in the evenings glorious yawn
I can see Him in the stars above
I can see Him in the bird that fly
I can see Him in the leaves that fall
I can see Him everywhere

I can feel Him
in the gentle breeze of spring bring
in the stream that gently flows
in the warmth of summer sun
in the cold of winter snow
I can feel Him in the rain that falls
I can feel Him in the birds that fly
I can feel Him in the still and calm
I can feel Him everywhere

I can hear Him
in the thunder from the storm
in the cooing of a dove
in the howl of the Wolf
in the stillness of His love
I can hear Him when I still myself
I can hear Him when I’m restless
I can hear Him in my sorrow that
I can hear Him everywhere

I can touch Him
in the questions of my prayers
n the times I speak His name
in the showers of His grace
in the words uttered in faith
I can touch Him every moment
I can touch Him in my troubles
I can touch Him when I’m lonely
I can touch Him anytime

I can feel His presence everywhere
He’s given me these senses so I could know He’s there
I use them every day
To guide me on my way
Let my mouth declare
My eyes behold
My ears be witness
My Spirit touch
The Glory of the Lord
It’s everywhere

Just Amazing

Amazing is His grace
That flows from Calvary
To every heart it comes
To set the captive free

Amazing is His love
No mortal man can know
How much He gave away
Because He loved us so

Amazing is His peace
That calms our every storm
He left this peace for me
He holds me in His arms

Amazing is His joy
My sorrow He dispels
I’m full to overflow
With joy unspeakable

Amazing is the Hope
That comes to me each day
I know my final home
For He has made a way

Amazing just amazing
The things He’s done for me
I’ll give me life to Him
For all eternity

This Christmas

Riding down the road
Destination known
Many miles to go
This Christmas

Presents packed away
Waiting for the day
Lots of things to say
This Christmas

Amidst the noise and merriment
I must remember one great thing
That there’s a reason
For the season
Jesus is the greatest gift

The story must be told
It never does grow old
Tell it loud and tell it bold
Jesus is the gift to hold

Eternity awaits
Please don’t hesitate
Accept Jesus it’s not too late
This gift was meant for you
This Christmas

Christmas Poetry

This Night

This night is a holy night.
With the star shining brightly in the sky
Where the child lay
This night is a holy night.
For the spirit of God has come to stay
In a stable filled with hay.
It’s a Holy Night

This star is a holy star.
Shining so brightly in the sky
There to light the way
This star is a holy star.
Giving light to Mary’s newborn babe
He has come the world to save.
It’s a Holy Star.

All of heaven rejoices, singing hallelujah
Emmanuel has come to earth
Angels ring in His coming on this glorious day
The son of God has come to save

This child is a holy child.
The angels proclaim His lowly birth
To shepherds in the field
This child is a holy child.
Kings bearing gifts come from afar
And they kneel before the child.
He’s a Holy Child.

Lift up your voice and sing praise to the newborn king
Good will to man and peace on earth He brings
Join with the chorus as angels sing
Praises to the King. Sing praises to the King!

All of heaven rejoices, singing hallelujah
Emmanuel has come to earth
Angels ring in His coming on this glorious day
The son of God has come to save

I Sing Hallelujah

I lift up my voice in the midst of the day and I sing hallelujah
I lift up my voice in the midst of the fay and I sing praise the Lord
What a wonderful gift He has given to me
The gift of a language is wondrous and free
I lift up my voice in the midst of the day and I sing hallelujah

I lift up my hands to the King of all Kings and I sing hallelujah
I lift up my hands to the King of all Kings and I sing praise the Lord
What a wonderful gift He has given to me
My hands are my helpers through all mysteries
I lift up my hands to the King of all Kings and I sing hallelujah

I lift up my eyes hoping to see His face and I sing hallelujah
I lift up my eyes hoping to see His face and I sing hallelujah
What a wonderful gift He has given to me
My eyes make it possible all things to ser
I lift up my eyes hoping to see His face and I sing hallelujah

Mercy and Grace

His Mercy is There

I struggle some days to see
The mercy of God for me
I know He is there
I know that He cares
I just don’t know why He loves me

I know He sees all my faults
He sees the worst parts of me
But He quickly forgives
Then He helps me to live
In the mercy He pours out to me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

I have to open my eyes
To see all the love He provides
It’s more than enough
To fill up my cup
He has an enormous supply

Now I can plainly see
That His mercy is meant for me
I raise up my hands
I thank God for His plans
He always does the best for me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

It’s His Mercy

People often ask me why I follow Christ
They just don’t seem to understand His benefits in life
I tell them it’s quite simple and easy to receive
Just ask Him for forgiveness and then His Word believe

Once these things have happened your eyes will open wide
You’ll understand that Jesus is right there by your side
Truly you will know that He cares for you each day
One thing will really stand out as you walk along His way

It’s His mercy plain and simple
His mercy came for me
His mercy left a throne above to die upon a tree
His mercy then forgave me
His mercy gave me life
His mercy keeps me everyday
His mercy is my guide

His mercy brings me healing
His mercy frees my soul
His mercy brings such joy and peace
His mercy I will hold
I’ve learned I cannot live without
This mercy that He gives me
His mercy is the source of Life
His mercy covers me

When anybody asks again what Jesus did for you
When they say they just can’t why you worship like you do
Just smile and look at them with your eyes just full of love
And tell them it’s His mercy His mercy is enough

Praise and Worship

His Mercy Lasts Forever

I shudder just to think
What will happen in a blink
To the lost when Jesus comes back in the clouds
The saved will rise away
And beginning on that day
The wrath of God will pour out on this ground

The lost who all denied
The Lord would test their lives
Will face such horrors we cannot contain
But even in those days
The Lord will show His grace
And some will still be saved from all that pain

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day

Don’t take your chance that day
Come to the Lord to stay
Take Him today to be your Lord and King
He’ll take you out of here
On that day that He appears
And you won’t have to face those nasty things

He warned you in His Word He’s coming back
He warned you in His Word to not be slack
Believe the Word of God
In a blink you’ll see reward
His Word is very clear in white and black

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day
