At the glorious sound of grace

You can do anythingpraise
I listen and give you praise

At the wonderful words you speak
The bring mercy to me
As I listen with glee

A Great Morning

Dark is the night
Stars shining bright
Sky is all clear
I feel God near

Quiet is the airnature
Wind is nowhere
Sun waits for dawn
Bird song is gone

Then I hear the Master
Whisper my name
Out of the dark
His voice the same

He says I love you
My peace be with you
Find joy in living
Forgiveness be giving
Speak only good things
Walk in my mercy
Find grace from me
Give grace out free

Then He was quiet
Birds started singing
Sun started rising
Light on  horizon

What a great morning
What a great way
To start this adventure
Of one more day.

Through Endless Obstacles

Softly
Quietly
Through the ancient forest
Tall and majestic trees
Reaching to the sky
Raining leaves in a drizzle
To the ragged ground below
Some fall into the brook
Babbling
Rolling
Over small rocks
Through tiny culverts
Unceasingly advancing
Through endless obstacles
Nothing stops it
The brook continues on
Softly
Quietly
Like that brook
Which murmurs as it flows
The voice of God speaks
Speaks to ears that will listen
Ears that are open
Hearts that are attentive
Waiting in anticipation
It comes amid this loud world
Thoughts fill our minds
Fleshly thoughts
Godless thoughts
Trying to block out His voice
Persistent
Ever present
His voice speaks
He’s always there
Watching
Waiting
Speaking
Like that brook
Trying to find you
Find your ears
Find your heart
Through endless obstacles
Nothing stops it
Except our inability to listen
His voice continues on

Closer Lord To You

I hear your voice of mercy
As you gently speak my name
There’s a need deep down inside me
That is causing me some pain

I can feel my mind is drifting
Farther from your loving side
Help me Lord to draw in closer
To your arms now open wide

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Everyday I need to call out
To your ever-listening ears
Everyday I need to praise you
Singing out so you will hear

Everyday your word is needed
To restore my heart to you
Everyday I need to bow down
Praying for your grace anew

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Let me hear your voice

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

He Gives Relief

He’s leading me
Through waters deep
Up mountains steep
His way I’ll keep
He’s leading me

He speaks to me
In still of night
With words of light
Keeps me upright
He speaks to me

Jesus Savior
My Messiah
Always by my side
Jesus, soon and coming King
In Him I abide

He’s here with me
When I am down
He makes no sound
But He’s around
He’s here with me

He comforts me
In times of grief
When joy seems brief
He gives relief
He comforts me

And when the road is hardest
When all hope seems to go
I know that He will see me through
Because He loves me so

Jesus Savior
My Messiah
Always by my side
Jesus, soon and coming King
In Him I abide

He Calls To Me

There’s a voice that calls out to me when I’m afraid
He says don’t you worry, I heard you pray
I will be with you to carry you through
Every trial you face

Times can get lonely here on this earth
Often times I just don’t feel I’m much worth
It is then that His voice whispers soft in my ear
I gave up my Son for you

When I am down
When I’m left out
When I am weakest
I give a shout
A grand shout of praise
To my Lord up above
I know He’ll hear me
And show me His love

The days of my journey often bring tests
Somedays I feel like I hardly get rest
If I listen closely I’ll hear His voice
Come unto me, my child

He’ll hold me up in His wonderful arms
Tell me He loves me as He brings a calm
He’ll carry me through those difficult days
When I abide in Him

He loves me
He cares for me
He is my Lord
He holds me
He speaks to me
Him I adore

When I am down
When I’m left out
When I am weakest
I give a shout
A grand shout of praise
To my Lord up above
I know He’ll hear me
And show me His love

He Longs To Hear

I often seek to hear God’s voice
To guide me day by day
He comes and gently speaks to me
Showing me the way

He spoke before the dawn today
His words were very clear
He told me that most every day
My voice He longs to hear

He longs to hear me giving thanks
For all that he has done
From the Spirits leading in my life
To the giving of His Son
Each day He makes the sun to rise
And the stars to shine at night
Oh that we would thank the Lord
For the blessings in our lives

He longs to hear me praying
For the many that I know
Who need a touch from Him today
His power He wants to show
All week I told those close to me
That I would pray for them
He longs to have me take the time
To lift those prayers to Him

He longs to hear me praise Him
With all my heart and soul
To lift His name above all names
His glory to be told
With mighty anthems raising high
Our Hallelujahs ring
Lift up His praise for all to hear
As His great name we sing

Jesus mighty Son of God
All power and praise to you
Glory in the highest
I lift my arms to you
Praise and adoration
With all I have within
Exalted is your name oh Lord
My God, my everything

I Come To You

I come to you this morning Lord
With my heart open
My ears open
My eyes open
My mind open
Hoping to hear your voice
To sense your presence
To feel your touch

I cry out to you
With words of praise
With words of worship
With words of thanksgiving
With words of repentance
Hoping for your mercy
Hoping for your grace
Hoping for your compassion

I remember your promise
If I seek you first
That all things will be added
That I must put you above all
Then all things will be put under my feet

I stand on your word
As I seek you
As I cry out to you
You Are all I need
All I seek
All I long for
All I desire

I worship you this morning Lord
With all my heart
With all my soul
With all my strength
With all my mind
I lift my praise to your throne
Ad magnify your mighty name

Jesus, Emmanuel
Jesus, King of Kings
Jesus, Savior of my soul
Jesus, Lord of all

Oh, Man, Turn to Me

I was walking on the beach
In a dream I had last night
Soft sand under my feet
As the waves crashed in
Incessantly

Then I heard the spirit speak to me
With the still small voice of God
“Hear the waves praise my name?
Hear them never cease to shout?
Loud and free.”

Then I traveled in my dream
To a meadow lined with trees
Just before the day dawned
As the birds chirp in glee
Unceasingly

Then I heard the spirit speak to me
With the still small voice of God
“Hear the birds praise my name?
Hear them fill the air with song?
So beautifully.”

Nature sings my praise all day
From wind to rain to streams
I long to hear the voice of man
Joining in their song

My crowning achievement
I gave him all of this
All of nature is at his disposal
All he needs is provided
Just like the birds and beasts
Just like the flowers and trees
Yet man does not praise me
But mocks me, scorns me, blames me

All I do is love him
I gave my son to set him free
I gave the spirit to guide him
Yet he chooses to remain lost
To remain by himself
Trying to figure life out
Trying to make it on his owns
Turning to things unknown
Harmful things, deadly things

Oh, man, turn to me
Lift up my name
Sing aloud my praise
I will lift you up
I will set you free
I will guide you through this world
Because I love you
I always have
I always will

Oh, man, turn to me
Join natures praise
Join the thankful chorus
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Emmanuel
For I am with you
Watching over you
Always

Quiet Ruled The Nght

Sometime in the night
I heard Him call my name
Quietly whispering His sweet words to me
I waited for His words
Yearning for His voice
Hoping He would tell me what would be

But quiet ruled the night
He did not speak again
I tried to recall what my Lord had said
His whisper was so faint
And I was half awake
I wasn’t sure what words were in my head

I took up pen and paper
And started to write down
Hoping it would spark my memory
But once I got the story down
Of how He woke me up
There was no more to write that I could see

I realized I’d missed it
I waited much to long
To write the words my Lord had said too me
I pondered getting up
To write what He had said
And once I took the pen the words did flee

A sadness filled my heart
As I lay back down to sleep
I knew that I had missed His word this time
I promise Him the next time
He starts to speak to me
I’ll quickly rise and write down every line.

If you’re awakened in the night
By the still small voice of God
Make sure you have a pen and paper near
You never know what He may say
Or what words will speak to you
Just open up your heart and lend an ear
