4-20-15 God is Light

purelight

Here is, my brother, wisdom bold and true:

That God the Father of us all is light.

There is no darkness in Him, through and through;

He is both true and holy in His might.

The gloom of sin can’t hide from Him at all;

He sees within our hearts, there’s no disguise.

His light is life to all things great and small;

Illuminating both the earth and skies.

God turned the lowly shepherd boy to king;

He walked the earth as Jesus, two as one.

He makes the dead to live and angels sing;

He calls the second coming of His Son.

Our God’s the light of Grace and Mercy, too;

He is the light of love, and He loves you.

~~~~~~~~~~~

This then is the message which we have heard of him,

and declare unto you,

that God is light,

and in him is no darkness at all.

1 John 1:5 KJV

4-4-15 Song of Expectation

angels-looking-down-over-us

Come join me in this song that has no end,

And we will praise the Lord forever more!

He’s our salvation, whom we can depend;

Our Savior Jesus, He’s worth living for!

Now, see this bloody pool on Calvary?

He died here on the cross just yesterday.

He sacrificed His life for you and me

Our sins He took upon Himself to pay!

Observe that giant stone before the tomb?

That’s where our Savior’s body then was laid.

Tomorrow that will be an empty room

For He will conquer death’s thin masquerade!

We sing, for Jesus Christ will soon be here!

Our resurrected Lord whom we revere!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold, God is my salvation;

I will trust, and not be afraid:

for the LORD is my strength and my song;

he also is become my salvation.

Isaiah 12:2 KJV

3-14-15 A Better Man

a new person

You’ve joined this mighty chorus for one cause,

To worship God and praise His name on high,

With prayer and hymn and joyful loud applause

Until you cannot help but testify!

The Spirit of the Lord is present now,

A fire burning bright within your heart,

And now you stand with light upon your brow,

A new creation here to do your part!

Don’t hesitate to lift your voice and sing,

For you’ve been turned into a better man!

You’ll prophesy until the rafters ring,

A living testimony of God’s plan!

Now on your feet, the choir’s hands are raised!

We’ve come here to have Jesus’ name be praised!

~~~~~~~~~~~

And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee,

and thou shalt prophesy with them,

and shalt be turned into another man.

With mighty congregations full of joy!

And offer our whole lives in humble praise!

2-1-14 Children of God

child of god 01

Although we came from parents in the flesh

In truth we are creations, orphan-born;

As mortal beings, while we breathe we’re fresh

But then we die and turn to dust to mourn.

Yet Jesus came and set the record straight:

He took our sins and on the cross He died;

He died for you and me, both small and great

Returning three days later to abide.

If we have faith in Jesus Christ as King

Believing fast that He’s our Savior dear,

We are adopted by our God to sing

As children bound for Heaven now so near.

By faith in Jesus, God’s our Father now.

By faith we walk like Christ; He’ll show us how.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For you are all the children of God

by faith in Jesus Christ.

Galatians 3:26 KJV

12-17-14 Hands Up!

praise

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King,

Surrendering my will to You above!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing

Eternal hymns of  glory, thanks and love!

And while I live Your presence fills my heart,

Directing every word that I should say!

Your Holy Spirit’s here, it won’t depart!

Thank God for You, my Savior, every way!

To me You are the way, the truth, the life,

The perfect Lamb that gave Your life for me!

The world may try to blind me with its strife,

But You just touch my eyes and I can see!

I lift my hands in praise, O Lord and King!

Your name’s exalted, let the whole world sing!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thus will I bless thee while I live:

I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Psalm 63:4 KJV

HALLELUJAH!

Praise

Let ev’rything within you praise the Lord!

Lift up your voice and worship Him with song!

The universe will join with one accord,

Until the stars themselves can sing along!

Thank God for giving you His constant grace,

Then fill your lungs with air and shout with glee!

Your love for Him will shine upon your face;

Your feet will want to dance, so set them free!

The atoms of your being spin and sing!

Let love ignite the passion of your sound,

As all that is within you call Him King

And joy shouts HALLELUJAH all around!

Make melody and sing with all you’ve got

And praise the Lord for all that He has wrought!

I will sing and make melody with all my being!

Psalm 108:1 ESV
