Worthy of Unconditional Trust

You lift my weary hands
That they might praise Your name.
My self condemning tongue
Is Yours to tame.
The love, the care, the unending mercy
All glorify who You are.
Your long suffering grace
Is never too far.
The sacrifice of giving Your Son.
The plan to set us free.
The giving of His life on the cross
To allow ours to be.
The reconciliation wrought for us.
The restoration plan.
The salvation of a world
On the shoulders of one Man.
Worthy of praise
And unconditional trust.
I love You, Father!
I love You, Jesus!

Faithfully Reassuring Love

This love that You have poured throughout my life,
Has been the wonder of every breath I take.
You desire so much good for me,
And lovingly watch every step I make.
You bring beauty to my life,
And to those You know I love.
You create signature creations
That clearly testify of You above.
You provide mercy to save me,
And grace to amaze me,
Arms to hold me,
And Your heart to embrace me.
So many wonders and miracles
To woo my heart to Yours,
To strengthen my faith
And to faithfully reassure.

Longing to Walk

Sweet Jesus, I long…
To love…
To serve…
To be.
I want so much…
To give You
All of
Me.
As children long to play,
So I
Long
To play.
I want to be obedient…
And still
Make You
happy
Each day.
Walk with me…
As I search
To walk
Your path.
I pray Your mercy
And grace…
Would deter
Your wrath.

Praying For Someone to Die

Praying for someone to die,
Is that even right?
Are there moments, Lord,
When it is more selfish
To pray for good health
Instead of sweet release?
How would we know
When You are calling to them?
How do we know if the crying soul
Is asking for mercy when we don’t understand?
And yet, who are we to play God?
Even if our hearts are wrenched
In sympathy for the hurting.
God help us to pray.
May the Holy Spirit teach us how.
May we listen and learn.
And may our hearts, minds, and prayers
Be more what YOU want.

God and I Will Win!

God, we’re gonna do it.
We’re gonna fight this sin.
And with You on my side,
I know we’re gonna win.
The enemy may attack
And I may retreat,
But with You as my Shield,
We will defeat.
Obstacles and doubts
May try to deceive us,
But the power of the blood
Will relieve us.
Fear and lack of faith
May try to discourage,
But Your grace and mercy
Will renew my courage.
Years may pass
As time may be the test,
But throughout eternity
In You I find rest.
We’re gonna do it, God.
We’re gonna win this fight.
Because You, Oh Lord,
Will make everything alright.

GRACE

It’s dinner time, set the table
And don’t forget my place.
Let’s all join hands and bow our heads,
We need to say our grace.
“Thank You, Father, for this food
Set before our eyes.
Know that we are thinking of
The child who sits and cries.
We ask that You may feed his need,
And help him grow in time
To a healthy and happy child
With sharing on his mind.
For all the hungry without a meal,
We ask that they be fed.
Praise You again for our dinner, Lord,
Our daily given bread.

I Walk Away

God, what a sinful way I’ve led.
All in the name of love.
Yet I know somewhere inside me,
Who I need is high above.
I see a glance of handsome men,
And catch a winking eye.
As I go to meet the man,
I’m telling you good-bye.
Why do I not see this thing?
Why must I be so blind?
If only I would follow my heart
And leave the dreams behind.
Oh, Holy Father, full of grace,
Please return my strength.
Replace, I pray, the love in me
To live for You again.
