“The Cross of Calvary” (re-post)

“The Cross of Calvary”

You paid the price at the Cross of Calvary
You tasted death; set sin’s prisoners free
You raise to life those who trust in You
You give them hope as only You can do

You love them with a love that never dies
You hear their prayers and their hearts’ cries
You are present, even in their darkest hour
You strengthen them in Your mighty power

You promised that you would come back again
You have said none but the Father knows when
You will gather together all who are Your own
You will lead Your lambs to their eternal home

Romans 6:4 (NASB)
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

I Peter 2:24 (NASB)
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.

Colossians 2:13-15 (NASB)
13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions,
14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.

“More To Our Existence”

“More To Our Existence”

There’s more to our existence
Than going through the motions
We get preoccupied with self
Carried adrift by our emotions

Life becomes very unstable
Thoughts turned inside out
Your Word quells the chaos
Banishes all fear and doubt

You’re the most glorified
When we’re satisfied in You
Trusting You wholly in heart
Firmly rooted in Your Truth

Sin for us holds no appeal
If Your statutes we obey
Nor will feelings rule us
If we follow You and pray

Psalms 19:11 (NASB)
The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psalms 16:11 (NASB)
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

“Forever Love”

“Forever Love”

Wherever our treasure is, then there our hearts also will be
Wordliness brings bondage; our liberty in Christ sets us free
Compromise is the fool’s path; Truth is the way of the wise
Sin confounds its victims; God’s Word opens spiritual eyes

Pride is the height of arrogance; humility is a lesson learned
Great is His grace; His salvation, a gift that no one can earn
He is our Sanctuary, though trials and troubles upon us come
He is Jesus, our Forever Love when our time on earth is done

Hebrews 13:5-6 (NASB)
5 for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?”

“As It Was Meant To Be”

“As It Was Meant To Be”

This is our prayer to You for each day
To set our hearts upon eternal things
You are sovereign; You are in control
Of whatever tomorrow to us brings

This life is but a wisp; a mere vapor
Treasures stored up on earth will pass
Each breath and heartbeat is Your gift
Only works done for Your glory will last

A brilliantly wonderful future we have
Perfect, Heavenly harmony of life anew
Joy unspeakable; as it was meant to be
And forever we will be worshipping You

II Corinthians 4:18 (NASB)
while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

“He Will Prevail”

“He Will Prevail”

Concerns and worries are left behind
Amidst the King’s Majestic Presence
Thoughts of Him fill heart and mind
Eclipsing all cares and circumstance

Praise and thanks rise to His Throne
Alpha and Omega, the First and Last
All Glory and Honor is due He Alone
Now, future, throughout ages past

Sovereign over the entire universe
Fashioned in most exquisite detail
Mighty Redeemer from sin’s curse
Forever and Ever He will prevail

Revelation 1:8 (NASB) “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

“He Is”

“He Is”

From Age to Age He is; Beginning and End
Majestic, Mighty King; Redeemer and Friend
All God’s Saints dwell in that Heavenly place
Surrounded by His beauty; awed by His grace
Swelling choruses of praise rise to His Throne
None Other Is Worthy; There Is Only He Alone
The Ancient of Days, Name Above All Names
Everlasting to Everlasting, unendingly He reigns
His Sons and Daughters; His Children eternally
Serve He who was, is, and forevermore shall be

Exodus 15:11 (NASB)
“Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, Awesome in praises, working wonders?

Psalms 90:2 (NASB)
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

“He Is Your Destiny” (re-post)

“He Is Your Destiny”

He is your Redeemer; Your Forever Friend
His love, mercy, and grace will never end
He is mighty and invincible in His power
Eternal Lord and King; Shelter and Tower

Dependence upon Jesus makes you strong
His Word sustains and carries you along
Prayer is your source of peace and hope
Brings you through; enables you to cope

Remember all that He has done for you
He has forgiven you and made you new
His Truth is like a mirror; in it you see
Your Savior’s Face; He is your destiny

Psalms 37:39-40 (NASB)
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble.
40 The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.

“King of Kings”

“King of Kings”

Let us surrender ourselves unto Him
Everlasting God Who Reigns on High
He fashioned the stars and planets
Architect of heaven, earth, and sky

All things exist by His Mighty Hand
Ancient of Days, before time began
Master Artist; Magnificent Wonders
Divine Providence; Sovereign Plan

Pure and Holy; A Consuming Fire
His Ways and Thoughts inscrutable
Deigned to reveal Himself to man
King of Kings, eternal, immutable

Nehemiah 9:6 (NASB)
You alone are the LORD. You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

“Before Our Eyes”

“Before Our Eyes”

Beautiful and breathtaking; a Homecoming near
The trump sound announcing that Jesus is here
What joy will capture us in the air as we rise
Precious faith is made reality before our eyes

We’ll be changed; transformed from inside out
No longer plagued by sin; nor fear and doubt
Those dead in Christ will precede our ascent
Joined to bodies glorified from fragile tents

Death expunged, victory; hello, not goodbye
Mind of Christ, clarity; no more asking why
That once obscured; will appear clear to view
Lives once shattered; will forever be as new

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NKJV)
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

“Jesus Holds Your Future”

“Jesus Holds Your Future”

The past is but a memory
Mere shadow, silhouette
Don’t let it rule over you
Close the door on regret

It does no good for you
To dwell upon sorrows
Jesus holds your future
And all your tomorrows

Dear ones, consider this
You’re His for eternity
You’re hidden in Him
And in Him you’re free

Colossians 3:3 (NASB)
For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

 

“One Heartbeat Away”

“One Heartbeat Away”

My Lord, for as long as I live
I will bow down before You
For as long as I have breath
I will worship and adore You

For as long as I am on this earth
I will testify of Your faithfulness
You saved me by Your sacrifice
You justified me in righteousness

I think of the future; what will be
And I lift up Your Name in praise
Just a stone’s throw from eternity
Just one heartbeat away, always

Romans 5:1-2 (NASB)
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

“Where Will Your Destination Be?”

Just as it was in the days of Noah
Is exactly how the world is today
God’s name is being blasphemed
As each person goes their own way

Jesus gave His life a ransom for sin
He came to save that which was lost
God’s mercy and grace to fallen man
God’s Son sacrificed upon the Cross

His salvation is a gift offered to all
For those who are willing to receive
A miracle is wrought within the heart
Faith given to understand and believe

Don’t leave this earth without the Savior
Regret will be your keepsake for eternity
You’ll live forever; either in Heaven or Hell
Question is, where will your destination be?

John 3:16-18 (NASB)
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18 “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

“How Beautiful It Will Be”

“How Beautiful It Will Be”

Moments tick by, and the anticipation grows
When Jesus will return, only the Father knows
God’s Children await the arrival of their King
Joy stirs within as praises to Him they bring

They read His Word and pray for those lost
Mindful that Jesus paid for them a heavy cost
How unfathomable are the riches of His grace
How beautiful it will be for them to see His face

Heaven’s joy will be for them to dwell with Him
To know as they are fully known; to be rid of sin
Hope they find not in this tent of flesh and bone
Only in their Savior; through Jesus Christ alone

Titus 2:13 (NASB) looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus

“For Once And For Always”

“For Once and For Always”

For once and for always; forever we have been saved
So extraordinary a price for us that Jesus Christ paid
He made Himself a guilt offering for us at the Cross
Perfect, Holy Lamb slain; He willingly paid the cost
While once we were dead in sin, He raised us to life
Brought us out of darkness into His Everlasting Light
Broken, brittle hearts; He fashioned completely new
Blind, dark minds; He opened to the purity of Truth
Once we were searching; we found our hope in Him
Once we were empty; now His Spirit resides within

Hebrews 7:25 (NASB)
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

John 10:27-29 (NASB)
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

“Foretaste of Glory”

Watching and waiting; poised and ready
Many storms arise; God holds us steady
Mortal ills; confusion and chaos abound
He is our Delight; in Him our joy is found

Truth anchors us; a beaming beacon of light
Our hope for the day; our peace in the night
When we praise Him, our faith is expressed
Fears are quieted as the heart enters His rest

In study of His Word, the Spirit gives insight
Wisdom for living and for doing what is right
Fellowship is ours with the Father and His Son
Foretaste of glory; glimpse of eternity to come

1 John 1:1-4 (NASB)
1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—
2 and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—
3 what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
4 These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
