Born again

The Choice

The day is coming soon my friend for Jesus to appear
I pray that you are ready for the time is very near
Today you have a choice to make that will affect your days
Once this life is all over and eternity awaits

If you do not accept the Lord and what He did for you
When He died on the cross and saved your soul so long ago
Then you will meet a fiery lake where worms and moth corrupt
Your thirst will never cease and your soul will cry enough

But days will never end and the torment will increase
The fury of our enemy on you will be unleashed
His dark domain is full of hate and evil all the time
Your soul will wallow in that pain until the end of time

But if you’ve asked the Lord of Lords to come into your heart
And if you’ve made the choice to let Him give you a new start
You are a new creation and the old many passed away
You will go straight to heaven when He returns that day

The pearly gates await you and you’ll walk on streets of gold
There will be no pain or tears or sorrows that you’’ll hold
We’ll see all of our friends who have made Jesus their choice
We all will be rejoicing with one heart and voice

Please make today the day that you make Jesus Lord
Ask Him to forgive your sins and save your sinful soul
Bow before His throne and honor Him as King of Kings
Then He will give you heaven and your heart will gladly sing

Holy holy are you Lord you are my souls delight
Power strength and glory be to you who sits on high
Hosanna in the highest you’re the Lamb upon the throne
Forever I will sing my praise to Jesus Christ my Lord

Serving the Lord

My Word is True

Be Still
And know that I am God
Know that I am with you
In every situation

Be still
And know that I am here
I’m walking right beside you
Through all your tribulation

Never worry
Never doubt
My word is true
Until the very end
Trust in me
I’ll never fail
On me you can depend
Because I am the King
And Lord of Lord

Be still
And listen to my voice
My words will bring you joy
And peace for all your sorrow

Be still
You’ll never have to fear
Because my love is real
Trust me for all your answers

Never worry
Never doubt
My word is true
Until the very end
Trust in me
I’ll never fail
On me you can depend
Because I am the King
And Lord of Lord

Effective Prayer

Honestly

Honestly
I don’t know why you love me
Why you care so much for me
Why you gave your life for me
On a hill called Calvary

Honestly
I try to do my best for you
I try to live my life for you
I try with all my heart and soul
To give you all I have
And give you all my praise

All that is within me wants to worship you
Wants to lift your name on high
Every minute
Everyday
I lift your name
I lift your name

Jesus, Son of God
You came to free me from this sin
That dwells so deep within
Jesus, Lamb of God
You became my sacrifice
Giving me eternal life

All that is within me wants to worship you
Wants to lift your name on high
Every minute
Everyday
I lift your name
I lift your name

Praise and Worship

I Rise to Greet You

I rise to greet you Jesus
I rise to give you praise
I rise before the dawning
To lift your holy name

I rise to read your word
Which satisfies my soul
I rise to intercede
For friends to be made whole

I rise to thank you Jesus
For your amazing grace
I rise to honor you
Your mercy I embrace

I rise this day with worship
Streaming from my heart
I promise you Lord Jesus’
I never will depart

I rise and sing Hosanna
Hallelujah to your name
Glory power and honor
I rise to give you praise

 

Christ Returns

The Coming King

I heard a bell this morning
It sounded out aloud
And then I saw an angel
Descending in a cloud

He said my name is Gabriel
I come to bring you news
Jesus Christ the Son of God
Is coming back real soon

He will come here suddenly
No warning will be given
In one blink of an eye His children
Will join Him in heaven

From this day forward rest assured
The time is coming near
So let your voice give witness
For all the world to hear

They must all confess their sins
And turn from their foul ways
They must accept Him as their Lord
And do good all their days

A trumpet sounded loud and clear
Then Gabriel spoke these words of cheer
May peace and joy rule all in your heart
And from His grace do not depart

With that He vanished in the air
The clouds he came in disappeared
I bowed my head and said a prayer
That I’d be faithful to declare
The King is coming soon my friend
Make sure your heart is right with Him

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
