Who We Are To Be – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Who We Are To Be – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

The battle is the building
The thing that makes us
Who we are to be
Hard pressed
Yet never left to be crushed
Perplexed
Still comforted before despair
Persecuted
Never yet are we alone
Struck down
Still He won’t let them destroy us
Yet we are built
Made to be
Just who we are meant to be
Through the battle
In the trial
Yet never alone

Sting Of Death – 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

Sting Of Death – 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

Sting of death
Where are you now?
Have you no victory?
For you fell
At the coming of the cross
And became no more
At the resurrection of the Lord
There is our victory
In Christ the Saving One
So here I ask again
Where oh death is your sting?

As Quick As Time Passes – Job 11:18

As Quick As Time Passes – Job 11:18

As quick as time passes
Hope builds a way
All mistakes of a life
Grace will wipe away
If time erases the will
Hope and grace build a future
Turning the lostness of our thoughts
To a secure future in the Lord

Day To Come – Jeremiah 50:4-5

Day To Come – Jeremiah 50:4-5

Is there a day to come
All the people
All the tribe
Come as one together
Looking for a home
Looking for Heaven
Will they turn their face
Raise a song
Raise a prayer
And on that day
If it is to come
If it is to be
He will bind them
To Himself
In covenant together
Far beyond
The day they come home

Blind To Wisdom – Proverbs 3:21-22

Blind To Wisdom – Proverbs 3:21-22

Blind to wisdom
Lost sight of understanding
Wandering
Just wandering
In darkness where nothing is found

Are these eyes simply closed
Trying to hide from the light
Tired
Just tired
Of living in a world of daily fight

Is this judgment correct
This hiding in the dark
Hope
Just hope
To find wisdom at the coming of the light

Darkness is folding
Under pressure from the truth
Grace
Just grace
The opening of wisdom to a life

Proverbs 3:21-22

In Darkest Nights – Psalm 147:11

In Darkest Nights – Psalm 147:11

In darkest nights
Broken mornings
Stormy days
And droughts forming
I find a place
In hope to give
An unfailing love to hold
A reason to live
A Father to love
Into a brighter day
In the Lord my faith
To show me the way

Psalm 147:11

His Earth – Psalm 24:1-4

His Earth – Psalm 24:1-4

Are we just hear for a short stay
Leasing our part of His earth
We walk the paths in the lands
Knitted together by the Lord Himself
And those of pure of heart
Shall climb His hills
And those of cleanest hands
Will stand there in His holy place
For they do not look to what is false
We are all but tenants upon His earth
We should then all live beneath commands He sets
So one day when our time on His earth is over
And stand  within the glory of His heaven
We will see the fullness of His promise

Psalm 24:1-4

Why Me? – Romans 7:24-25

Why Me? – Romans 7:24-25

Why me?
How am I worth it?
Just a wretch
Deep in his sin
Sinking in a bottle
Unable to live
Yet still He came
His words were heard
Where the bottle faded
Temptation with it
Broken set free
Rebuilt by faith
Risen to find life
By the sacrifice of Christ
Who paid this debt
Amassed in sin
To set a man free
To live from within
But still I ask
Why me?

Romans 7:24-25

Come Together – 1 John 4:7

Come Together – 1 John 4:7

World of anger
Of hate
And separation
Cam we come together
See our way to love
For love IS of God
And aren’t we the same
We just forget
What it is to be love
For we that love
Are born of God
So let’s find a way
To remove this separation
And come together
Beneath a banner of love
