“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.

“He Loves And Cares For You”

“He Loves And Cares For You”

When storm clouds darken your day
Your mind and emotions are spent
You don’t have the strength to pray
You’re wondering where God went

No matter what you may think or feel
Dear One, He hasn’t moved from you
Promises laid out in His Word are real
His absolute, eternal measure of Truth

Nothing can pluck you from His hand
You know that His promises are true
Hide this in your heart and understand
Unfailingly, He loves and cares for you

Jeremiah 31:3 (NASB)
I have loved you with an everlasting love

Hebrews 13:8 (NASB)
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

“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.

“The Shadow Of Your Wings”

“The Shadow of Your Wings”

As I praise and worship You
In mind, heart, and spirit
You put a smile on my face
And fill me with a quiet, internal, peaceful stillness
You lift the veil from my eyes
You are my delight
My desires become Yours
To serve you, and to be faithful
In willing and joyful obedience
As I bask in your extravagant and unconditional love,
Safely tucked away in the shadow of Your wings,
Resting in Your arms eternally

Psalms 91:1 (NASB)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

“To My Brethren”

“To My Brethren”

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.

“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.

“Peace and Rest”

“Peace and Rest”

God knows what’s in my heart and mind
It’s Him in prayer daily I’ll seek and find
From the minute I wake, until day’s end
He’s gracious to me; My Faithful Friend

Those times when fear and faith collide
He’s my Deliverer, and in Him I’ll abide
If I rely on myself, I’ll stumble and fall
If I’m trusting in Him, He’ll handle it all

He’ll never leave me; of this I’m aware
I’m kept in His loving and tender care
My fears melt away, for He’s all I need
In Him, I’ve true peace and rest indeed

Psalm 18:2 (NASB) The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB) 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

“To Love You”

Love is a choice….

“To Love You”

I choose to love you; I am committed to this path
I choose to love you; I am not deserving of wrath
I choose to love you; no matter how I am feeling
I choose to love you; even if hurt sends me reeling

I choose to love you; even if I am treated wrong
I choose to love you; you know I have all along
I choose to love you; because God loved me first
I choose to love you; He loved me at my worst

I choose to love you; He wants me to forgive
I choose to love you; this is how I want to live
I choose to love you; by your side I will stay
I choose to love you; nothing else can I say

Proverbs 15:1 (NASB)
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.

“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.

“Sole Delight”

Lord, I am safe and secure in You
Let Your Word be my sole delight
That I may think upon Your Truth
From morning through the night

Renew my mind; Light my way
Plant Your Word deeply within
You are the Potter; I am the clay
Liberated from the power of sin

In You, I have an oasis of peace
Abiding in You, I have my rest
All my worries to You I release
In You, I am happy and blessed

Psalms 37:4 (NASB)
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 119:35 (NASB)
Make me walk in the path of Your commandments,
For I delight in it.

Psalms 1:1-2 (NASB)
1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

“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.
