Eyes Wide Open

So many people follow
The words of mortal man
No question if it’s truth
They move at their command

It seems they wander blindly
The path laid out for them
By those who could not care less
If they lose or if they win

I’ve made my big decision
My eye’s are open wide
I’m going to follow Jesus
His word will be my guide

No blindness in His message
No question of the truth
The victory lies in His hands
He loves me through and through

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Blindly

Tell It Like It Is

Some people trust in stars
To come and tell their fate
Others use a horoscope
I see if they should date

To others it’s a Ouija board
And others use a seance
I’ll just take God at His word
In Him there is no nuance

He always tells it like it is
The truth is always clear
You’ll be much better off each day
If His words you will hear

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Nuance

My Heart Cries Out

I still remember when I first met Jesus

Sitting on a couch in Iowa

He came into my heart

Gave me a brand-new start

I knew that He was with me all the way

 

It’s been over 40 years since that day

When the burden of my sin was washed away

Since then I’ve learned to pray

And to follow in His ways

But most of all I’ve learned to praise His name

 

My heart cries out to praise Him

For all He’s done for me

His mercy’s overwhelming

His grace is sweet indeed

I lift my hands in worship

To Jesus Christ my King

My heart cries out to praise Him

He is my everything

 

Today I know He teaches me His truth

And He’s become my guiding light

I trust in Him always

I know He plans my days

I will never be out of His sight

 

And should this day bring troubles

That make me doubt and fear

I know He’ll comfort me

And in His arms I’ll be

Safe and sound, His love will be so near

 

My heart cries out to praise Him

For all He’s done for me

His mercy’s overwhelming

His grace is sweet indeed

I lift my hands in worship

To Jesus Christ my King

My heart cries out to praise Him

He is my everything

 

Bless His Name

I will sing of the wonderful love of Jesus
How he came to earth that day
He gave up His throne in the heavens
To be born in a stable of hay

I will sing of His wonderful mercy
And His amazing grace
I will sing my Hallelujah’s
And give Him all my praise

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name than Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus

I will sing of the teaching He brought us
How He showed the Fathers love
He healed the sick and the blind man
And delivered those who were bound

I will sing of the way He provided
For the crowds that gathered round
I will sing of His glorious presence
And make a joyful sound

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name then Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus

Then He gave His life
On a cross of shame
Crucified for me
Bless His Holy name
He died to set me free
And give me life eternally

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name than Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus
