Anything of value I’ve done
Is only by Your Hand of grace
Forever You my pardon won
Which nothing can ever erase
Strength in self I don’t possess
But all I am and have is in You
My Rock, My Mighty Fortress
Without You, no good do I do
All that matters is You, not me
If not for You, I’d certainly fall
I pray to serve You obediently
My Jesus, My Lord, All in All
Romans 5:17 (NASB)
For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
John 1:16 (NASB)
For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace
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 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.
Who are we that God notices us?
Creator of All; Transcendent King
Why did He send His Son to die?
On the Cross, a Perfect Offering
Why does He hear our prayers?
In Jesus, we have righteousness
How can we receive forgiveness?
When our sins to Him we confess
Why were we put upon this earth?
For His glory, and because He lives
What motivates us to live for Him?
Because He is ours; and we are His
Ephesians 2:4-7 (NASB)
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
To My Brethren; My Dear Family in Christ
May He fill your thoughts with His peace
May you take comfort in His loving arms
All your fears and anxieties in Him cease
May you rise up in His infinite strength
May He meet the longings of your heart
May He bestow His blessings upon you
Grace and goodness to you He imparts
As you travel with Him along this road
Though you can’t see around the bend
He’s your sufficiency in your weakness
He’ll uphold you right to the very end
Ephesians 1:18-19 (NASB)
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
The nearer God’s Children draw to Him
The more they will grow to hate their sin
His Pure Holiness; of this they are aware
His mercy toward them; His loving care
Through refining fire, their faith He tests
They are strongest when in He they rest
In light of His grace, their troubles dim
There is peace; a quiet assurance within
He is their Lord; He comes to their aid
He is their Hope; Joy that will not fade
Psalms 32:11 (NASB)
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
Our eyes will gaze upon Jesus
From this world, we will depart
We discern this in our spirits
Hold His promise in our hearts
No longer will we be strangers
Aliens in a hostile, foreign land
Our Heavenly Home is calling
Prepared by His own Hand
It is beyond imagination
What our Lord has planned
For we who love Him so
But He has provided us
Through His Holy Word
All He wants us to know
I Corinthians 2:9-10 (NASB)
but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
