The Shedding Of A Tear – Philippians 2:19

The Shedding Of A Tear – Philippians 2:19

Do you shed a tear
One of joy
When you hear
The great deeds
The Father does
In the life of another
Do you praise His name
As the tears roll
In the joy of all He does

Then another will surely share
In the shedding of a tear
When they hear of you
And the grace the Father has shown
To bring about the change
That opens a love of Him
So never be afraid
To hide just who you are
And all the things He did
To bring joy back to you life

The Seed And The Unploughed Ground – Hosea 10:12

The Seed And The Unploughed Ground – Hosea 10:12

Am I ready
For the seed to take
The untended fields
Now hard ground
Have I the strength
To put hand to plough
So I can break up
These unploughed useless grounds
Lord, if I plough the land
Cab we plant the seed
Ready for the rains
To pour down upon me
And bring the seed to life
To bear fruit for gathering
And when the time is right
To reap Your unfailing love

Hosea 10:12

Wronged – Psalm 51:1-2

Wronged – Psalm 51:1-2

I wronged so many times
Before You found me
And so many times since
Can I not change
Oh Lord, have mercy on me
Forgive me my mistakes
I try, still I fail so much
Too much of the old left within me
Your grace has covered my past sins
Oh Lord, cover me with grace again
Wash me clean once more time
That I may rise new once again

Psalm 51:1-2

The Rains – Job 36:27-32

The Rains – Job 36:27-32

See the clouds
See how they form
From the waters drawn up
By His own hand
And the thunder that sounds
Marvel at the lightning that falls
All by His commands
And His rain that comes
Bringing life to the land
Where once it was barren
It now finds life
And where are you?
As you watch from afar
Left behind in the dry lands
Or dancing in that rain that falls
If dry lands it be
Hold tight and remain prayer
For the droughts will end
When He brings waters to the land
And there you will dance
Beneath the rains that bring life

Job 36:27-32

Keep Believing – Revelation 21:1-3

Keep believing
Remain in Him
Hold on tight
For a day is to come
Of a new heaven
And a new earth
A day when the Father
Will once more dwell
With the children He loves

Not Broken – Romans 8:37

Not Broken – Romans 8:37

Not broken
Not fallen
A little battered
A little bruised
Yet still here
Still fighting
Not by my strength
Not by my will
By the hand of a Father
By the grace of the Lord
Made stronger
Made a conqueror
Over all things I face
Over myself

Romans 8:37

All Creation Awaits – Psalm 96:11-13

All Creation Awaits – Psalm 96:11-13

Yet the streets so quiet
As creation awaits
Stranger times
Quiet tides
World full of fear
Worry our coat
Tightly wrapped around us
To hold out the world
When will we cheer again
When will we come together
To find it in us to rejoice
To find the hope to praise the Lord
Not this worry
This fear
The quiet
For all creation awaits
And it will be heard
When comes the sound
Of rejoicing before the Lord

Psalm 96:11-13

Psalm 96:11-13

Steps – 2 John 1:6

Steps – 2 John 1:6

How do we walk
What is within our steps
Obedience or love
Or neglect and indifference
Will the world ever start to step
In tune with each other
Steps in time with love, obedience
Steps within the commands
Of the Lord who loves us all

2 John 1:6

Though We Be Free – Galatians 5:13-15

Though We Be Free – Galatians 5:13-15

Though we be free
Though we be forgiven
It doesn’t mean
It’s okay to do wrong
If we attack one another
By verbal or strike
To steal or defraud
For what good is in that
Man will destroy one another
When it turns it’s mind from the way
Believing it is free
To live life as it pleases
To step over each other
To get to the top
To beat down a brother
To be seen as the one
Still he believes he is free
Even worst he’s forgiven
How blind can man be
To believe he can live this way
And still speak of God
And the freedom he’s been given
Is this the true brokenness of man

Galatians 5:13-15

Firm Steps – Psalm 37:23

Firm Steps – Psalm 37:23

Do I trust?
Do I delight?
As I take all my steps
Or do I decide for myself?
Seek my own joy
As I walk through this world
But my steps on my own
Are never quite secure
I may stubble
But not fall
But still not so firm
What if I trust?
What if I place my delight?
In the Lord makes firm
All the steps that I take

Psalm 37:23
