“Oh, The Night”

Oh, the night is dark and cold
But my heart is warm and bright,
You’re here with me,
God, I am not alone.

In Your presence, Lord,
I find rest and comfort,
In difficult circumstances
I can trust You completely.

Father, You are faithful;
I am often disobedient.
Lord, You are merciful;
I’m not kind to many.

What cold is in my heart?
What numbness keeps me
From showing others love?
Father, change my heart.

I search for a way
To be free of fear
That keeps me here
Not changing for good.

You’re the one I need most,
You can take away my fears,
You provide what I really need,
My Sustainer, Provider, Father.

Sunday Praise (13) 12/2/18

Sunday Praise (13) 12/2/18. by me

My heart is filled with praise
For You have filled it, God,
My heart rejoices in You
My Master, Savior, Friend.

Make Yourself at home
In my heart, good Lord,
Throw the trash out of it,
Make use of my heart.

It is good for us to gather
And praise You, worthy One,
We are here to worship You,
Lord and Savior, God and King.

Brothers and sisters in Christ
Come together to exalt You,
To witness of Your great deeds
In their lives and in others’.

We enter Your presence
With thanksgiving, Lord,
We know that You are worthy
To be exalted, heavenly Father.

We will bless Your name,
We are Your servants,
We are Your children,
You’re our Father in Heaven.

We praise You, You are good,
We bless You, You are loving,
We sing praises to You, God,
It is good and pleasant to do it.

I want to praise You
With all of my heart
And with my whole soul
For all that You’ve done.

My heart is ready to praise You,
I come into Your presence, God,
Glory to You, holy and righteous One,
I will exalt Your name now and forever.

I want to love You more and more
For all that You have done for me
And what You’ve done for others,
You deserve to be thanked and praised.

God, I praise You for saving me,
You’ve ransomed me, rescued me,
I’m saved by Your grace through faith,
I am Your child now, my soul rejoices.

Teach me to praise You
When I enter a weak state,
Teach me to trust You more
Especially when it’s difficult.

Help me to pray all the more
In life’s difficult moments, Lord,
I’m learning how important that is,
I need Your help to do that, Father.

Correct me where I’m wrong,
Discipline me, heavenly Father,
Remove the hindrances to my growth
In faith and love and knowledge of You.

Help me to praise You more,
I can only thrive in You,
You’re my hope and joy,
You’re my King and Father.

Help me to remember the Cross
On which Christ died for me,
Help me to cherish His sacrifice,
To glorify Him for what He’s done.

You made me whiter than the snow
By the blood of Christ the Savior,
I’m made new, made whole, justified,
Set apart for You, to fulfil Your will.

Blessed be Your name, O Lord,
Blessed be You now and always,
Praise and honor, glory and power
All to You, my God, my Savior, King.

“The Broken Want”

“The Broken Want”

I’ve seen the words
Carved on broken hearts
“You’re worthless,”
It’s a monstrous lie.

They’ve heard so much
It broke their hearts to pieces,
So many lies told to them,
Oh how they’ve suffered!

They try to smile
But their eyes say
The scars are visible,
The damage undeniable.

It’s darkness they’ve been lost in,
Poison of lies they’ve breathed in,
Confused but still want the truth,
Want to be free from condemnation.

They want to hear a truth they haven’t yet:
Want to believe they’re not worthless,
Want to believe somebody cares about them,
Want to know someone loves them.

Sick of the condemnation,
So sick of hearing the lies
They’ve heard so many times,
Need more than the past pain.

Sunday Praise (12) 11/25/18

Sunday Praise (12) 11/25/18. by me.

This is where I want to be –
In Your presence, heavenly Father.
This is what my soul longs for –
You alone, to be with You, God.

I am learning to praise You,
You’re teaching me daily
To obey You as I should,
To love You and people.

The more I think about You
The more I am amazed, God,
You are wonderful, majesty,
There really is none like You.

Daily You are beckoning me
To come, to be closer to You,
To enter Your presence as I am,
Bringing You my thanks and needs.

God, I look to no other name
For assurance of eternal life,
You’re my hope and strength,
You’re always the one I need.

I thank for the rain You sent
To where the fires were burning,
You washed away the smoke,
I thank You for Your mercy and care.

My heart rejoices in You, Lord,
Help me to rejoice when it’s hard,
Teach me to trust You more and more,
Help me to look to You always, God.

I come to You with praise,
With thanksgiving in my heart,
For You deserve it, You’re worthy,
There is none like You, O Lord.

Christ is my life’s foundation
Firm and sound and sure,
I’ve found no hope so real and true
As I found in You, my Almighty God.

Bring me closer to You
By Your love and grace,
I am seeking Your face,
Learning to love and obey.

God, Your grace is amazing
And You are more amazing still,
You’ve saved me, I’m Your child,
You have given me eternal life.

I know life’s not without problems,
There’s pain, loss, and suffering,
One day You’ll make those things end,
One day You’ll make it all as it should be.

Life is difficult, it’s not simple,
I’ve learned this from others
And I’m learning this myself,
You’re the one I always need.

Teach me to not love the world system
Nor things in it hostile toward You, God,
I want to speak truth to all those perishing,
To tell and show them what they need most.

Blessed be Your name,
Blessed be You, O Lord,
My soul blesses You now
And will bless You forever.

You’re greater than words can describe
And more wonderful than I now realize.
I want to give You a worthy offering
That You deserve and will accept.

Change my heart where change needs to be,
Work in me to change me for the better,
To love and obey and to be more like You,
I see no better change than this for my life.

God, for Your love I worship You,
For Your grace I glorify You,
For Your mercy I praise You,
For Your blesssings I thank You.

The Earth is surely full of Your mercy,
I see Your works when I focus on You,
Though some deny You anything at all
I know it’s not coincidence, it’s You, God.

It is good to praise You
Every day of my life,
You’ve given me all I have,
I thank You for everything.

My God, I enter Your presence,
Now is the time to worship You
For Your love and grace and mercy,
For Your truth and judgments and justice.

God, You’re the joy I can’t lose,
You’re my constant in the change,
You’re my hope and strength and song,
I will worship You now and forevermore.

Thanksgiving

“Thank You, God”

Thank You, God, for everything,
That’s easy to say but hard to mean it
When life gets so difficult,
When contentment isn’t present.

Thank You, God, for Your love,
I wouldn’t even exist right now
If You didn’t love me and created me,
If You didn’t have a purpose for my life.

Thank You, God, for the air in my lungs,
The breaths I can inhale and exhale,
The steps I can take, that I can run,
Thank You for my body You’ve made.

Thank You, God, for the home I live in,
For a roof over my head, for the warmth,
For the things I have and what I don’t,
You give and take away, You’re blessed.

Thank You, God, for all the food I have,
The available nourishment and sustenance,
For all that You’ve made to be eaten,
What benefits and strengthens mind and body.

Thank You, God, for the people
You have brought into my life,
For the people I can learn from,
For those I can experience life with.

Thank You, God, for salvation
I have because of Christ’s death
On the Cross, forgiveness of sins,
Reconciliation with You, adoption.

Thank You, God, for Jesus Christ,
Lamb of God, the only real Savior,
Shepherd, Redeemer, Friend, Master,
For His resurrection, for His victory.

Thank You, God, for Your grace,
For Your mercy and kindness,
For Your justice and righteousness,
For Your holiness and sovereign reign.

Thank You, God, for Your patience,
For correction, discipline, lessons,
For answering prayers of everyone
According to Your will and character.

Thank You, God, for what You withhold,
You know best what we need or don’t,
You have Your reasons for all You do,
You are Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent.

Thank You, God, for all that You’ve done,
For all that You’re doing in the present,
For all that You will do in the future,
Thank You that You alone are the true God.

Thank You, God, now and forever,
Glory to You in the highest forever,
Praise, honor, devotion, sacrifice,
All to You who deserves it all forever.
