Salvation Of The Broken

Salvation Of The Broken (Exodus 15:2)

You bring the lost home
To Your fortress of strength
Rebuilding the lost souls
Salvation of the broken
A hope for us all
Come sinner or saint
Now I sing You my praise
From a lost sheep
With a heart of sin
Sin now forgotten
Heart now clean
By the love of the Father
I lift up my praise
For this new life I’ve found

Exodus 15:2

His Promise

His Promise (Zechariah 10:12)

Do you hear His promise?
There is strength in His word
Do you trust in His hope?
That makes your future secure
Do you call out His name?
In good times and bad

When you hear His word
You see the way open up before you
When you hold to His hope
You will never be shaken
When you cry out His name
Your life is forever changed

Zechariah 10:12

Skies Fall

Skies Fall

That night I remember
With a tear of joy in my eye
The night I felt I was lost
When my skies fell to the ground
And there I saw Your face
There beyond my clouds
A light shining from heaven
And there in the smile of Your eyes
I knew that in You I was found

 

The Walk

The Walk

I took a walk
You called me out
As the sun rose
Beyond my horizons

I stepped on
Hand in hand with Your word
We journeyed
You spoke

Though the skin of my feet
Was torn, blooded and in shreds
I pushed on
Up the hill I faced

My legs burning
Yet on I pushed
None of this mattered
Just Your words

Because this I know
The pain that You lifted
Always outweighs
The pain inflicted

 

Take A Walk

Take A Walk (Isaiah 32:17)

Take a walk
A break from your life
Day to day you’re so busy
The humdrum of daily living
So much time doing nothing
What’s it all for
So tired and worn
Emotionally drawn
So take a walk
A walk with the Father
Where peace is the prize
Your righteousness will bring
With Him there is quietness
Only His love will break
And a confidence His hope will make
So take a walk

And rediscover your life

Faith, Hope, Love

Faith, Hope, Love (1 Corinthians 13:13)

You call to me
Have faith my child
Trust in You with all my heart
And You will guide my way
And see me through

You sing to me
A song of hope
In the quiet times and lonely moments
It fills my soul
With the promise you give

You ask of me
Above all love
Even when it hurts so deep, still love
When it’s hard to do, love anyway
Love them all regardless

For without Your love there is no life

1 Corinthians 13:13

Fall Behind

Fall Behind

Where my path may lead
Is beyond my view
Where I’m going
I do not know
Yet I know where I’ve been
And I’m not going back
That pain was so deep
It hurts in that darkness
The shadows so heavy
They lay as a burden
Each day I try to shed

His vision, His plan
It’s all there before me
There for me to find
So I try to keep His light
There in front of me
Then my shadows
They fall behind me
Times I still turn away
And stare deep into my shadows
But I won’t take a step there
It’s a place I won’t go
No more will I carry that pain
I go back to light and the path before
Walking away from my shadows
And the pain of darkness they hold

Broken Arrows

Broken Arrows

The arrow’s flown
It’s hit it’s mark
Opening wounds that shouldn’t be there
Deep below the skin
A fragile soul is torn
You see in their eyes
The anger which they strung their bow
As the words become the arrows
Which collide with your soul over and over again
To your knees you slip

A tiny tear falls
As another wells
The arrows still fly
The wounds become deep
So, so deep
Then they stop
They strike no more
Suspended in the air before
Beaten back by a word
A shield from heaven

The Father has spoken
His word into your life
His word your shield
His word binds the wounds
His word wipes the tear
And lifts you to your feet

Then here you stand
Immersed deep within His word
Triumphant in His glory
Defiant against their words
An army couldn’t break you now
For you are His
And He has already won
The blood of the Son has overcome

They will run
Broken arrows all spent
Today you have victory
And tomorrow will be the same
They will try again
Once more their words their arrows
You stay within His word
Victory assured
With Him then you’ll walk
Far beyond this field of broken arrows

You Rise

You Rise (1 Peter 5:10)

You’ve come so far
And fight so hard
At times it’s tough
I’ve seen you stumble
Yet you look to me
And you rise
You rise each time
Never staying down
My strength is yours
And it will always be
Whatever you face
My strength goes with you
Never alone
We face it together

1 Peter 5:10

Sadness Falls

Sadness Falls (Psalm 108:3-4)

Where my darkness lies
Your light falls
When my heart fades
Your hope becomes it’s beat
In the times I feels so alone
Your hands reach out
And when I hold tight to them
All my sadness falls
My lonely heart beats strong once more
And my song is of Your hope
Oh how You love
Even the ones so lost
With Your love so great
As it falls on us all

Psalm 108:3-4
