Salvaged and Rescued

Help! Help! My body hurts!
I’m living out that horrible curse!
What will take away the pain?
Only that precious blood gain.
Jesus is my only hope.
He is the only cure.
I am so filthy inside out.
I need Him because He’s pure.
His blood the only antidote
to the disease so inflicted.
He is the only pardon
to the guilty rightly convicted.
Praise! Praise!
He was willing to rescue!
He is just as willing
to salvage you!

The Evangelistic Well

Preachers study so hard
to bring us God’s word.
Had he not been faithful,
we would’ve never heard.
Ministers serve so many
ministering to their church.
The faithful serving
helps heal the hurt.
Evangelists travel to tell
Jesus wants no one in hell.
Thank God for the evangelist
who shared from the well.

Finding Treasure In You

Ministry and friends,
I never knew one day they’d be the same.
Friends in ministry,
I never knew I’d know so many by name.
My son and you,
I had a hope you would know each other.
You in my son,
I would have hope for no other.
Serving in joy,
I would not have thought went together.
Joy in serving,
I want that feeling to last forever.
Hope in faith,
I seek to hold onto you.
Faith in hope,
I know you hold onto me too.

Things I’ve Heard While Reading You

Chariots, horses, and oxen too,
things I’ve heard while reading You.
Flowers, gardens, and vineyards grow,
each with a parable to learn and know.
Giants, ghosts, and angels who fly
make me want to know how and why.
A virgin, a carpenter, and a coming king
makes one want to hear the angels sing.
The wine, the dove, and a brother out of the grave
makes one glad He came to save.
The sweat, the cross, and the betrayal of friends,
Lord willing, makes one want to repent.

Joy In The Bible

Joy in the bible.
Joy in reading Your pages.
Joy in traveling
With You through the ages.
Joy in learning
The many acts of faith.
Joy in witnessing
The many acts of grace.
Joy in Your mercy.
Joy in Your love.
Joy in getting to know
Your only Son from above.
Joy to know it’s real.
Joy to know it lasts.
Joy to know some day
It will ALL come to pass!

Help This Pastor and Wife

This flock of many burdened souls,
they trust them with their souls,
just as You have entrusted his leadership
to help them keep control.
This house of many mothers
look to her for heavenly advice,
just as You have given her leadership
to be the queen of nice.
This crowded building of Yours
is his for the moment You’ve shared.
Help him to be the man You want
as he has obediently chosen to care.
These eyes of those who search her
for answers to do the right.
God, help her to keep her sanity
as she strives not to lose sight.
This place is called a church.
These people Your congregation.
Help this pastor and wife.
Relay Your gift of salvation.
