Burdens

Burdens

Those heavy burdens and some light
The painful burden in the dead of the night
Those carried afar
To those found so near
Their weight burdens a soul
But can you not hear the water
Of the streams running beside you
Can you find the living waters
Beside which you can lay your burdens down
There upon the banks
Leave all that you carry
And walk into the waters
Let the waters wash you clean
The streams that run right from heaven
Where the weak will find their hope
Where the weary lay down their burdens
And all who give them their soul
Will walk free once more

Wilderness (John 7:37-38)

Wilderness (John 7:37-38)

Have we walked
Through dry lands
Desperately searching
For streams in the wilderness
To refresh our souls
To satisfy our desires
Yet we kept on searching
Never finding
Our hearts looking in wrong places
To the dry river beds
Where our lifesong once ran
Endless searching
Until upon our knees
We finally fell
Calling out to heaven’s rains
And there He was
All along
Our Christ
Our saviour
Before our eyes

Holding out His cup
Living waters for our soul
Endless life within His hands
There it was all along
Within our reach
Even in the dry lands
There in the wilderness
So why I ask
Did we take so long to see?

Verse of the Day – Isaiah 44:3

Isaiah 44:3

Isaiah 44:3

I, like so many are thankful for that journey from dry and parched lands, to lands of living water.

YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A RIVER by THIRD DAY
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When this cruel world tears us apart
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
When sharpened words have left their scars
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
And it’s overflowing and showing us all
How deep and how wide is Your love
It never stops, it rages on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When I am tired and so afraid
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
When darkness comes and my vision fades
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
And it’s always burning and stirring my soul
To know You and love You much more
It never stops or ever fades
Your love is like a fire that will light my way

IT’S NEVER GONNA STOP
IT’S FLOWING FROM MY HEART
IT’S NEVER GONNA FADE
YOUR LOVE WILL LIGHT MY WAY

When all my strength and hope is gone
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on

Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
 

The Eternal Stream

THE ETERNAL STREAM

When every tear falls
The earth will shake
With a sound that
Reaches out to heaven

The cry of the broken
Is heard high above
And the King on his throne
His heart gently breaks

Every sob is felt by The Lord
As He reaches out His arms
To comfort the empty
To bring healing to their souls

When they feel His touch
He’ll lift them up
From the barren lands
Out of the desolate pain

On wings of eagles He carries them
To the banks of the eternal stream
Where His living water
Will forever feed their roots

Where they never again suffer
Or feel the pain of emptiness
May they yield fruit in every season
Planted in the eternal stream
