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.
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?”
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.
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.
Romans 8:6 (NASB)
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
Hebrews 13:20-21 (NASB)
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.
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
Jude 1:3 (NASB)
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.
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.
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.
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.
