Tears And Joy – Psalm 30:4-5

Tears And Joy – Psalm 30:4-5

Too many nights
The tears have fallen
Too many days
That have taken their toll

When it’s all too much
These is a prayer within the tears
When the tears fall
The Lord is always there

And all my weeping
Is followed by the joy
All those mornings
I find joy within the Lord

Psalm 30:4-5

Psalm 30:4-5

A Man Alone – Isaiah 41:10

A Man Alone – Isaiah 41:10

A man once fell
Yet there was no one
No one around
He had no strength
To lift himself up
He cried, he cried
Won’t somebody help
Still no one came running
No one at all
The sun and the rains
In turn beat down
The winds and the storms
Battered him once more
Still nobody came
To this man on the floor
He dreamed of a time
He would rise again
To be counted as human
A man of this world
And not left behind
Or a man alone
But all hope faded
As dark came the nights
How long passed?
Days, maybe months
And there He lay alone
With very little left
And still no one else around
Then from the wilderness
That man, he heard a voice

Do not fear
For I am with you
The One with the strength
So you can live again
I will lift you up
Healing the broken
And the wounds
Only I can help you
Stand you right again
With my right hand
I am grace
I am love
And I am yours
If you take my hand

The man was in awe
Couldn’t believe his ears
The One he never believed in
Call Him out the wilderness
When all the world
Had failed him
The God of all
Had called Him out
To rise from the dust and dirt
To be lifted up
And counted once more
But counted no
As one upon this earth
But a child of the Father
The Father of them all
And back then the man
Wouldn’t have the strength
To write this down
And though time has passed
And many tears have fallen
The strength is still here
To write this down
To write it once more

For All I Hold – Psalm 108:3-4

For All I Hold – Psalm 108:3-4

For the life I have
I sing praises Lord
For all I hold
The thanks are Yours

For all I receive
This steadfast love
For the hope I have
This everlasting promise

I raise my song
My voice of praise
I raise my prayers
My voice of thanks

Psalm 108:3-4

Greater Love – John 15:13

Greater Love – John 15:13

A greater love
Of Father and Son
Who would lay down
His life for us
At the Father’s
To save us all
This greater love
For us all
For all His children
That we be saved
By the One
Who laid down His life
For the greater love

They Spoke – Romans 10:9

They Spoke – Romans 10:9

In the depths
They spoke
Of a Saviour
Of salvation
It was waiting
There for me
If I say
And believe
Jesus is Lord
And I am here
A saved man
With hope
And new dreams
Thanks to the Lord
Who rescued this soul
To live again
To believe

Listen Only – Isaiah 8:19-20

Listen Only – Isaiah 8:19-20

Speak only to the Father
Listen only for His word
Take the truth from the living God
Not from those with word from beyond
His word is alive
His truth is light
So listen only to our Lord
The Father, Son and the Spirit
Listen only for His word

Isaiah 8:19-20

Isaiah 8:19-20

What To Say – Luke 12:11-12

What To Say – Luke 12:11-12

If they ask
Will I break
Not knowing
What to say

“I don’t know enough”
“ I may sound stupid”
“Or even worse, a little crazy”

Or will I just trust
The Holy Spirit to speak
The truth of who He is
And what He means to me

Luke 12:11-12

Luke 12:11-12

If Only They Knew – Psalm 12:1

If Only They Knew – Psalm 12:1

Is this the way
The world has turned
No one is faithful
Or trusts in the word
Each to their own
Their way of living
The faithful so few
In this world of want
If only they knew
Just what they needed
The voice of the Father
The One who is Truth
If only they knew
The life they could lead

Psalm 12:1
