“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.

“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?”

“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.

 

 

“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.

“Center Of Your Will”

“Center of Your Will”

Flood my mind with Your Word
Let it revive my heart once more
Let my mouth speak only Truth
Let it be what I most hunger for

Your ways are the path to Life
Abundant, fulfilling, and whole
Purifying light; piercing within
Sanctifying; cleansing the soul

Fasten my thoughts upon You
That I would seek You each day
Draw me closer than ever before
In the center of Your will to stay

Psalms 25:10 (NASB)
All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

20 Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord,
21 equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

“Compromise”

“Compromise”

Either we stand fully for the Truth
Or eat rotting fruits of compromise
Ignoring error just to keep peace
Straddling the fence on both sides

If we want to do things our way
Then we’re not committed to Him
Either we follow Him or we stray
Serve Him or tolerate our own sin

The world hates us with a fury
But it was He they rejected first
They were His judge and jury
Spiritual blindness at its worst

Jesus showed to us His mercy
Demonstrated His unfailing love
Saved us from a dark eternity
For a forever in heaven above

John 17:17 (NASB)
Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

Psalms 119:160 (NASB)
The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.

John 1:10-13 (NASB)
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

“Tomorrow May Be Too Late”

“Tomorrow May Be Too Late”

Anger fans the flame; the hostility intensifies
Momentum builds; it’s only a matter of time
The saints wait expectantly; with anticipation
For their Redeemer; the God of their salvation

Suddenly, He’ll remove them from the stage
Exiting a world of sin, lost in its rebellious rage
What Scripture predicts will be brought to bear
Let this Truth be known; dear reader, be aware

God never changes; His Word remains the same
Seek Him, or you’ll only have yourself to blame
Choose your eternity; don’t gamble on your fate
Heed His call now, for tomorrow may be too late

II Peter 3:9 (NASB)
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

James 4:14 (NASB)
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

“In His Hands”

“In His Hands”

Feast upon the Word of God; His endless banquet of Truth
Be a partaker of the spiritual nourishment He has supplied
Your soul will be refreshed and your mind will be renewed
Your hunger and thirst after righteousness will be satisfied

Delight yourself in Him; drink from the springs of salvation
Cast your cares upon Him; obey and follow His commands
Refrain from worry; He works all things out for your good
He is always in control; the whole world rests in His hands

Psalm 19:7-8 (NASB)
The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

“While You Still Have Breath”

“While You Still Have Breath”

You must answer these questions
Your day of reckoning will come
Where will you spend eternity?
Do you know Jesus, God’s Son?

You can try and ignore the Truth
But your mortality you can’t ignore
When your soul is required of you
What will you have been living for?

Give this serious thought, you see
Because regardless of how you feel
God’s Word says you live only once
The judgment that awaits you is real

Jesus died so that you could be free
From sin’s curse and unending death
If you just ask Him to, He’ll forgive you
Do it today, while you still have breath

Mark 8:36-37 (NASB)
36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
37 For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

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.

“Have No Fear”

“Have No Fear”

Now is the time to speak the Truth of God’s Word
Now is the time for the gospel message to be heard
Now is the time to be bold witnesses for Him today
Now is the time for us to get on our knees and pray

Now is the time to be salt and light to a world blind
Now is the time for us to shine so His light they find
Now is the time for us to remember our mission here
Now is the time to be strong in Him and have no fear

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

Ephesians 5:15-16 (NASB)
15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

“Beacon of Hope”

“Beacon of Hope”

Your Word is Light to my heart
In a world grown dark and cold
A Beacon of Hope to my mind
Absolute Truth to which I hold

The world is so confused today
Following their own delusions
So unsteady and easily swayed
Drawing their own conclusions

The more that I learn from You
I see things through Your eyes
Discern the false from the true
The foolishness from the wise

Some deny that You even exist
This I cannot begin to understand
In their sin and pride they resist
Blinded to works of Your Hand

I am grateful that You notice me
You are familiar with all my ways
You hold me in Your sovereignty
I will praise You now and always

Psalms 119:105 (NASB)
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

“Safely In His Keeping”

“Safely in His Keeping”

An eternal fountain of Living Water flows
A Reservoir of Truth that the heart knows
Refreshing to both the soul and the mind
Dismantling fears and doubts of all kinds

Goodness and grace; blessings and peace
In faith and trust; all strivings are ceased
A sense of security; like a child sleeping
A life hid in Christ; safely in His keeping

Proverbs 3:24 (NASB)
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
