glory

O Father, all the kingdoms do You reign;

Both earth and heaven hearken to Your name,

And all Your sons and daughters are germane,

To worship You forever with acclaim.

You are onmipotent, O Abba God;

We turn to you with all our hopes and needs.

The grandeur of Your power leaves us awed,

And all creation serve in word and deed.

The honor and the glory go to You,

Deserving of our praise and even more;

No other one are we more grateful to,

For You alone are worthy to adore.

Your majesty we venerate again,

Forever and for ever and Amen!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power,

and the glory,

for ever.

Amen.

10-17-14 The Lord’s Prayer 02: Thy Kingdom Come

earth from space

O, Father, when Your kingdom came as man

Upon the form of Jesus Christ Your Son,

He did all things according to Your plan;

He lived and died that Your will would be done.

Your kingdom is made know to these who gave

Our faith to Christ as Saviour in our lives,

And with Your grace You choose our souls to save

To tell the world Your kingdom will revive.

O God, let now Your will be done on earth

As it is done in heaven perfectly;

We seek Your will with all our heart and worth

That it be done with love and constantly.

The fullness of Your kingdom’s coming soon;

Your will on earth as heaven both in tune.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done in earth,

as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10 KJV

10-6-14 As a Little Child

Child_and_Gift

A child accepts a gift with fervent glee

And lays aside all pride and prejudice.

Those newly dead to sin and so set free

Receives the gospel with unfettered bliss.

The intellect sometimes can know a truth,

But can’t compare to soul accepting Christ.

This kind of joy reflects the golden youth

Who drink salvation’s milk as life sufficed.

God’s kingdom truly is the greatest gift

To those sincere at heart who love the Lord;

No longer lost in sin and set adrift,

The infant child of God gets his reward.

Stretch out your arms, embrace the bold good news;

Redemption’s in your reach, it’s yours to choose.

~~~~~

Verily I say unto you,

Whosoever shall not receive

the kingdom of God as a little child,

he shall not enter therein.

Mark 10:15 KJV

9-9-14 Restoration

restoration

Conceived into a realm of sin and pain

There was no hope for me until His call.

I recognized my Shepherd’s telling strain,

Releasing my poor soul from evil’s caul.

Sometimes I leave the straight and narrow way,

Distracted by temptation’s bright allure,

And when I realize I’ve gone astray

My Shepherd then restores my soul for sure.

He turns me from the darkness into light;

His steady love revives me when I doubt.

Despite my roaming ways He sets me right

And through His grace my faith becomes devout.

            When He renews my spirit I become

            A bright example of His Kingdom come.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He restoreth my soul

Psalm 23:3 KJV

080414 You Are My King

Jesus on the throne

You are my King, O Jesus Christ, my Lord!

I bow to You and pledge my very life,

The very life that You in me restored,

And now I serve You in this world of strife.

The battle for the souls of Adam’s sons

Is raging here upon this sinful sphere,

And faithfully I fight for Your loved ones;

With You as King I’ve nothing here to fear.

The Kingdom that You rule is Heaven now,

But when You come again this will be Yours,

Reclaiming all when ev’ry knee shall bow;

There’ll be no weeping then and no more wars.

O Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Use me, O Christ, I’m Yours forever more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus answered,

“My kingdom is not of this world.”

John 18:36 KJV

7-26-14 Let Us Show Gratitude

gratitude

If we are cleansed due to the blood of Christ,

And have the Holy Spirit in our veins,

A kingdom made from God’s good grace unpriced

Is waiting for us now in His domain.

With gratitude held fast eternally

Our daily life should so reflect His love

That when a stranger meets us he will see

The light of Jesus Christ as known above.

In reverence and awe our hearts stay full,

So we must give as He has given us;

As we pour out our love we feel the pull

Of Spirit flowing to the world as thus.

The gifts awaiting there on golden shore

Reflect the gifts we give and so much more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken,

let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God

an acceptable service with reverence and awe…

Hebrews 12:28
