What Do We See? – 1 Peter 3:8-9

What Do We See? – 1 Peter 3:8-9

Upon the screen
What do we see?
Hate countering hate
Is this really the way?
Is this what we’re called for?
And I’m sorry to say
It’s not always the unknowing
But they that call themselves the church
So what is our example?
Are our hands not that clean?
Is it time we looked within
To see if this hate
Truly has a place in our heart

1 Peter 3:8-9

Our Worlds May Change – Hebrews 13:8

Our Worlds May Change – Hebrews 13:8

Our worlds may change
Things get easier
And things can get harder
The room around may shrink
Yet the problems still grow
But whatever happens
One thing is true
No matter how things change
Jesus Christ is ever the same
The same as yesterday
Today and forever

Hebrews 13:8

I Felt Free – Proverbs 24:17

I Felt Free – Proverbs 24:17

I felt free
When I let it all go
I felt a burden lifted
When I chose to forgive
The weight of anger
The pain of retaliation
Burned so deep within
But when I prayed to the Lord
Asked Him of their forgiveness
I felt free
And I felt it all just go

One And All – Isaiah 43:1

One And All – Isaiah 43:1

Redeemed by the gift of the Lord
Named by the voice of our Lord
For we are His children

So fear not for what is to come
Fear not for what has gone before
For we are His children
One and all

Our Own Song – Psalm 96:1-3

Our Own Song – Psalm 96:1-3

Each song our own
Still upon the theme of praise
As each to our story
Of the greatness of our God
Our words
Our lyrics
Make up our own unique song
So sing out your song
In the theme of His praise
Sing out before the Lord
And praise His mighty name

Flames – 1 Peter 4:12-13

Flames – 1 Peter 4:12-13

The fires will come
The flames will rise
We will suffer in the midst
Still we rejoice in Christ
With Him we shame walk
Through the flames of the fire
Until the time comes
The flames shall dance no more

In His Ways – Psalm 18:30-31

In His Ways – Psalm 18:30-31

A flawless shield
For the battle to come
The rock upon which
Our fortress will stand
In His ways
We will not be shaken
In His word
We will be victorious
So hold to Him
Never let Him go
Within His perfect love
His children made strong

Facing The Trial – Matthew 26:39

Facing The Trial – Matthew 26:39

In the darkest hour
Facing the trial
The greatest will pray
When it’s know what will be
And what He had to do
He ask for another way
In His weakest moment
His humble soul
Prayed to the Father
And what do I do
When facing the trial
Do I carry on failing myself
Or I pray to the Lord

Matthew 26:39

Weak – 2 Corinthians 13:4

Weak – 2 Corinthians 13:4

We are weak in ourselves
With Christ crucified
Still in weakness
Made strong
By the Father’s mercy
We shall live
Lives so rich
In abundant love
So in weakness be humble
Die one’s self
And find then the strength
To live once again

2 Corinthians 13:4
