There is a River

bach creek river

There is a river of love and peace
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Sweet blessings you will know

There is a river of joy and hope
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Your symptoms, they will go

There is a river which runs forever
And as it flows it whispers your name
Oh! Please, come down to the water’s edge
Take a step forward and you’ll never be the same

RIVERS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

fast flowing river

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has chosen
This heart for His child
Why does He love me so

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has saved me
Lovingly made me
Why does He love me so

His beautiful Word
Sings a melody
And all my life, will lead
And this I know
For His Word tells me so
And His Word is all that I need

O Jesus, O Jesus
Your rivers of mercy consumed
And this hidden bud
Once captive in thorns
Is free at last
Fragrance released

Broken hearts will be touched
Songs of joy enter in
Darkness, it will have to flee
And all because, our Father’s love
Is embraced in unfailing mercy

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have chosen
This heart for Your child
Why do You love me so

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have saved me
Lovingly made me
Why do You love me so

Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
Flowing from Your throne
Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
I will never be alone
Never be alone
Never be alone
Rivers of mercy

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR HEART TO JESUS (Song Lyrics)

beautiful sea view

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

The night has seemed never ending
The cold waves, billowing much pain
Through teary eyes you strain to see
Release from whence this turmoil came

You feel so lonely, so alone
Lost in years of buffeting rain
Listen dear child, open your heart
I can hear Him calling your name

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

A ray of hope descends on you
The clouds scatter, and clear a way
Storms leave on the tail of His breath
Our Lord has living words to say

I am the Answer, your Saviour
I am all you’ve been searching for
My love, I’ve finally found you
And I’m bringing you home to shore

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

STANDING BY THE SEASHORE (Song Lyrics)

child looking at the sea

Coming to a place where my heart beats, and is forever yours
I stand upon the shoreline, and listen to heaven’s applause
It’s taken me so long, the sand gently brushed all pain away
For me to finally hear Your voice, and say, I’m here to stay

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

Your sweet voice was always distant, and yet it was always there
Sometimes, even, O please forgive me, I thought You didn’t care
But now my eyes have been opened, to see what I couldn’t hear
That it’s with my heart I hear You, not with my physical ear

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

And Lord, now that I know the whole truth, the truth shall make me free
All who I am in Christ, all who I was created to be
You will show me, and as I gaze into Your beautiful eyes
I’m standing by the seashore, hearing Your voice instead of lies

You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

O Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

PLEASE STAY

PLEASE STAY image

You washed me white as snow
You took my stains away
Oh Lord, I love You so
Please stay

You held me as I wept
My pain and grief You bore
My heart cried out to You
Please stay

I could not see for tears
All that You’d done for me
Your life You sacrificed
Please stay

Please help me see the truth
Please help my unbelief
Please heal my broken heart
Please stay

(Insert your name here), open your eyes
I spoke these words for you
It is finished, and all that I’ve done
Has given you the victory
In Me, you’ve already won
And I won’t leave you
I won’t ever forget you
Our Father, He sent Me for you
And We’ve loved you ere the world begun
Over your life, Our love. We’ve sung

So now I say to you
Please stay
Please stay
I’ve healed your heart
Poured My love in
I’ve sealed your life
Cleansed you from sin
Please stay
Please stay

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHER’S DAY (A Song for Anyone with a Sweet Mother’s Heart)

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY

O the sweetness of those words
You mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Touches deep, releases joy
Something only a dearest child could say

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings with them, sweet butterflies
Of fleeting memories from yesteryear
Interspersed with cherished love
Can sense their closeness, even if not near

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings a bouquet of sweet intent
And hugs that reach to eternity
Thankfulness for heaven’s gift
Preciousness with a face that’s so pretty

O may I feel your arms surround me
May I feel your breath upon me
May I feel your love towards me
Sweet child, sweet child, of mine

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

AND NOW A PRAYER FOR ANYONE WITH A SWEET MOTHER’S HEART

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY (2)

Dearest Heavenly Father
I come before You to lift every Mother unto You
And even though Mother’s Day is a wordly affair
And every day should be Mother’s Day in a child’s heart
You are love
You know our need for love
So I lift all Mothers unto You
All who have never been Mothers
Yet have a Mothering heart
All who are with child at this very moment
But are on the verge of terminating that life
All who are with child at this very moment
But are fearful of losing that life
Due to complications, accidents, medications
All who have lost a child
All who have lost children
Whether miscarried
Stillborn
As an infant
A toddler
Child
Young teen
Teenager
Young adult
An adult
… to silence
All who have a Mothering heart
And through silent tears
Are unable to have children
But Lord
But with God
Nothing is impossible
All who are awaiting the news
Of a missing child
Desperate for news
Hoping, praying
That they will be returned
Safely into their nuturing arms
All who are unable to spend
Mother’s Day together
Due to distance
Sickness
Disagreements
Anger
Hurt
Pride
And any other Mother who due
To no fault of their own
Is just unable to share
This precious day
As is every day
Together
All Mothers who have lost their Mothers
As a child
And never knew them
As an adult
The grief is the same
Anyone who has lost their Mother
Those whose heart is breaking
Because their Mother is so sick
Fear worrying how they will cope without them
O Lord
O Lord
Please also bless those spending
Today together
May they be aware of the gift they have
May Your love abound
May Your love abound
Shed Your love abroad
May it enter deep within all hearts
Unto You Lord
Unto You Lord
Precious Lord
In Jesus Name I pray
Amen

WHEN LOVE OVERWHELMS (Song Lyrics)

Valentine’s Day Rose Love Background
Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

Knowing that He loves me
Knowing that He cares
Knowing that wherever He leads me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me
For me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

I hear Him calling my name
Sweet child
I love you

Bridge
When His love overwhelms me
And peace settles deep within
It’s like falling upon a bed of roses
Where healing fragrance silently infuses in

The softness of morning
The stillness of eve
Through every waking moment forming
Love entwined with each new dawning
Dawning
Love entwined with each new dawning

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

He’s calling my name again
Sweet child
I love you

Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does
And as hard as I try
I cannot describe
The depths of my Father’s love
Being cherished and adored by Love
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished in the arms of Love
Of Love
Cherished in the arms of Love

Lord, it’s me
Sweet child
Here I am
Ready to receive Your love
And fall deeper in love with You
So much deeper in love with You

BECAUSE HE LOVES ME (A Song of Priceless Love)

Because He Loves Me

Into the garden He went
Shed as it were great tears of blood
And He shed a drop for me
Shed a drop in anguish for me

Carried His cross
Which cut into bleeding wounds
And He bore more pain for me
In love bore pain and sickness for me

Raised in humiliation
Was scorned, mocked and jeered
And He watched sorrowfully over me
Watched sorrowfully in sorrow over me

Endured suffocating darkness, so alone
Time’s sin poured into Him
And He emptied my sin from me
Emptied completely the fall from me

Drew His last breath
Crushed, surrendered and torn
And He took that last breath for me
Took that last breath of love for me

Three days of stillness
Battle now over
And He slept wrapped in Father’s love for me
Slept in peace knowing what He’d done for me

Hallelujah, He rose triumphantly
He still bears those scars for me
And He had suffered to set me free
Yes He suffered to bring life eternal to me

And He followed the will of His Father
Yet being God
He could have changed His story
But He loved me so
Didn’t interrupt the flow
Of excruciating agony
To bring Himself glory

Because He loved me
Loves me still
Will forever love me
Gave of His life
Gave of His blood
Gave His sweet heart
For me, my story

Yes He was pallid, weak
And weakness shook Him
Drained of mortality
But He drank the cup of my helplessness
He lived, He died
Praise God He now lives for me

THE ROSE IN MY GARDEN (Song Lyrics)

red rose

There’s a rose in my garden
Radiating the Saviour’s blood
And with dying thorns, it shadows
Flooding hearts, with Father’s love

Come sit beside the rose
Come humbly, bow your head
Let fragrance emitted
Dry all the tears you’ve shed

Reach out, touch the softness
It opened just for you
And like hands from above
Says, come, I’ll make you new

My thorns will not pierce you
For they’ve already pierced
The life of dear Jesus
Upon His head they laid

There’s a rose in my garden
Radiating the Saviour’s blood
And with dying thorns, it shadows
Flooding hearts, with Father’s love

In His dying body
Infused with so much pain
He took all your sorrows
So you, His life, could gain

But death, it could not hold
The perfect Son of God
He’s risen, He’s risen
The dark grave could not hold

So don’t you be frightened
Of any thorny trial
All pain has been removed
Love pours from Calvary’s hill

Jesus, came to save
Jesus, came to heal
Jesus, died so we
Could in His presence, kneel

There’s a rose in my garden
Radiating the Saviour’s blood
And with dying thorns, it shadows
Flooding hearts, with Father’s love
