“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

“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.”

“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.

“Joyful Song”

“Joyful Song”

God will meet all of your needs
When darkness descends upon you
His glory lights your way
He guards and guides you
With His steadying, gentle Hand
Even when it seems all is lost
He holds You in the palm of His hand
His love, mercy, and grace
Surround and protect You always
Rest in Him, dear ones
For He will soon lead us Home
We will worship, praise, and enjoy Him
For eternity and beyond
His joyful song in our hearts forever

Psalms 100:2 (NASB) Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing

“Adopted and Sealed”

“Adopted and Sealed”

By God’s Word I seek to live each day
By His Spirit I’m adopted and sealed
A joy stirs my heart that’s here to stay
Knowledge of His Truth to me revealed

Now it’s through a darkened lens I see
Existence bound up in time and space
Far from here, an eternal reality for me
Forever to look upon my Savior’s face

His promises to me are true and sure
Reminding me of His grace and love
To be sanctified; to be holy and pure
Is the desire of one born from above

Ephesians 1:5-6 (NASB)
5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,
6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

Ephesians 1:13-14 (NASB)
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,
who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

Galatians 4:6-7 (NASB)
6 Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”
7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

Romans 8:16 (NASB)
16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God

“Forever In My Heart”

“Forever In My Heart”

Neither the sum of my thoughts, nor all the words that I write
Can capture what will seize my heart when faith is made sight
The Gospel of Christ compels me; I am brought closer to Him
A sanctifying, holy fire; a kindled flame burns brightly within

Empowered through His Truth; driven to my knees in prayer
He alone is worthy; I am not; He keeps me in His divine care
He and I; Jesus and me; for this day, for eternity; never apart
Not I, but He; not my life, but His; first, forever in my heart

Psalms 116:1-2 (NASB)
1 I love the LORD, because He hears My voice and my supplications.
2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

“Alive In Christ”

“Alive in Christ”

Grace and Truth; Mercy and Love
Poured out upon us by God above
In Jesus Christ, Joy of Life to live
Mighty Savior; faithful to forgive
Declared righteous; pure in Him
Delivered from the power of sin
Hope is reborn; a renewed heart
Alive in Christ; a brand new start
No cause to fear; not even in death
Forever in His arms; at final breath

II Corinthians 4:6 (NASB)
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

Romans 8:10 (NASB)
If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
