Forever Here – Isaiah 54:5

Forever Here – Isaiah 54:5

Forever here
At my side
The maker of earth and stars
He who walks
Ever with me
Redeemed the soul of a broken man
Set him free
Eased his pain
The grace of the God of all the earth
At my side
Forever more

True Of Only You – Psalm 92:2

True Of Only You – Psalm 92:2

Each time I rise
Below the grace of morning light
The touch of love upon my hands
The well of love within my heart
True of only You, my Lord

Each time I sleep
Beneath the stars that break the night
Your faithful arms hold me within peace
Your faithful grace erases all my fear
True of only You, my Lord

Psalm 92:2

By God Loved – Hosea 9:1

By God Loved – Hosea 9:1

If I turn my face
And sin before You Lord
Be the words with my head
That I may not rejoice
In the evil deeds of my heart
I shall fall upon this floor
And cry before You Lord
And how many times?
Will I pray forgiveness
Before You turn Your face
How many times?
Will I sin again
Yet You my Lord love so strong
Stronger than my sin
By grace forgiven
By God loved

Hosea 9:1

It’s A Long Road From Here – Exodus 33:12-16

It’s A Long Road From Here – Exodus 33:12-16

It’s a long road from here
It seems a long way to go
There are others here with me
And You say I am to lead
You bade me set them free
And lead them to tomorrow
But here I am upon my knees
Calling to You my Lord
Wherever I go, go with me
In all my words, be my voice
When I stop to find direction
Be the sign that leads me on
I can’t do this on my own
Not upon this road that leads forever
So many miles that I should travel
Lord, wherever I go
Be there with me

Exodus 33:12-16

Always – Philippians 4:4

Always – Philippians 4:4

In brighter days
Or darker nights
In the cool breeze
Or the depth of the fire
I’ve found my way
By rejoicing in the Lord
Always

Upon mountain high
Or the valley low
Upon stormier seas
Or the golden sands
I’ve made my way
By rejoicing in my Lord
Always

Philippians 4:4

To Question? – Ezekiel 20:1-3

To Question? – Ezekiel 20:1-3

Are we to question?
The ways of the maker
He who placed the stars
High within the night sky
Who’s ways are absolute
He who formed our souls
Breathes life into our lungs
He who set a path for us
Before we are born
Such a perfect love
Can it be questioned?
Who I am
That I questions His ways
I will follow Him
For I am but a child of God

Whatever/However – Exodus 13:21-22

Whatever/However – Exodus 13:21-22

Whatever the time
However the light
You show Yourself
You find a way
To lead me on

Whatever the view
However the challenge
You light the way
You place Yourself
To protect me steps

Whatever the battle
However the struggle
You shelter my soul
You keep me safe
To lead me home
