“Song Of The Saints” (re-post)

“Song of the Saints”

It is the grateful song of the saints
They sing to their God in praise
A spiritual melody in their hearts
As their thanks to Him they raise

It is reliance upon their Redeemer
His finished work upon the Cross
It is for them He spilled His blood
Purchased them at so great a cost

It is the freedom they have in Him
A higher calling and excellent way
To live out the Truth of the gospel
Here and now and every single day

Isaiah 12:2 (NASB)
“Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.”

Colossians 3:16 (NASB)
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

“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.

“Hand of Grace”

“Hand of Grace”

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

“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?”

“I’m Free”

“I’m Free”

I’ll fix my eyes upon Jesus alone
In Him, my hope won’t grow faint
He’s my King, Lord, and Savior
I’m His forgiven, thankful saint

The joy of salvation I have in Him
His mercy and great grace abound
To understand His Truth is to know
In His Word, true wisdom is found

I fail miserably if I rely on myself
Trust in what I feel, think, and see
But when I focus only upon Him
My mind is at peace and I’m free

Proverbs 31:24 (NASB)
Be strong and let your heart take courage,
All you who hope in the LORD.

Psalms 19:8 (NASB)
The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

“His Holy Light”

“His Holy Light”

As myriads of stars illumine the nighttime sky
So do Saints in Christ display His Holy Light
Purified and refined by the Truth of His Word
Walking by faith in Him, not by physical sight

Apart from Him, they are like ships lost at sea
He loses none; He brings them safely to shore
He is their Shepherd Who watches over them
He is their God Who loves them forevermore

Psalms 36:9 (NASB) For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

 

 

“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.

“For His Glory”

“For His Glory”

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.

“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

“A Personal, Eternal Relationship”

“A Personal, Eternal Relationship”

Surviving in a world lost; besieged by sin
Is done through the power of Jesus Christ
His sheep aren’t left to their own devices
They are His own; purchased with a price

Prayer is a privilege; a priceless resource
Delighting in Him; aligning with His will
A personal, eternal relationship with Him
Is a longing in their hearts only He can fill

John 15:14-15 (NASB)
14 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 15 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

Psalms 37:4-5 (NASB)
4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.

John 5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

“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.

“Jesus Is Lord”

“Jesus Is Lord”

Hearts and minds shielded by God’s peace
Find shelter under the shadow of His wings
He is the Giver of Life and All Good Gifts
He is the Author and Creator of All Things

The Father’s Only Son; The Preeminent One
King of Kings, Lord of Lords; First and Last
Word Incarnate; Firstborn Over All Creation
Now and tomorrow; throughout all ages past

At the Name of Jesus, every knee will bow
Every eye will see and every tongue confess
Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
And forever He will reign in righteousness

Psalms 11:7 (NASB)
For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness;
The upright will behold His face.
