My Heart, It Goes Awandering

beautiful red heart background vector

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The part which hears His small, still voice
So I searched across oceans wide
In mountain depths, I have no choice

I seem to have lost a little part of me
The pool from which sweet joy, it flows
My heart, it goes awandering
Where it goes, only the Lord knows

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where love fills me to completeness
I’ve turned my back on all that’s safe
Traded His truth for emptiness

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Where teardrops beat a path to fill
Where silence sounds so deafening
Where help seems so absent and still

I seem to have lost a little part of me
Maybe this trial has an ending
In times of impending defeat
’Tis only He, my heart mending

I seem to have found that vital part of me
That part that beats the tune of love
The only reason I found it
Letting go, it fell from above

I THOUGHT I WAS HIDDEN (Song Lyrics)

the romantic theme of highdefinition picture 1

I’m in hiding, hiding from love
Hiding from eyes, blessed far above
Always running, going nowhere
Looking for hope, someone to care

I’m lost amidst life’s turbulence
Dark, swirling clouds breeding suspense
Feet they move, I’m going backwards
Head downcast, tug of war upwards

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

I can’t do this, I’m so alone
This heart of mine has turned to stone
The light it fades, joy’s door has shut
A load so weary, heavy; but

You shone Your light, caused me to see
Whispered sweet words, caused me to be
Wrapped in a love, all enduring
Wrapped in a love, love amazing

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them

Love sent from Bethlehem
Love sent from Bethlehem

I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE MARTHA ANYMORE

Praying Girl

Chorus
I don’t want to be like Martha
Anymore, anymore, anymore
I don’t want to be like Martha
Captive to every fear and chore
I just want to be like Mary
At Jesus’ feet upon the floor
I just want to be like Mary
And listen at heaven’s healing door

Draw me to Thy voice
Draw me to Thy word
Draw me to the sweetest thing
These ears have ever heard

Close my eyes to see
Close my mouth to speak
Close every door open
Strengthen all that is weak

Chorus
I don’t want to be like Martha
Anymore, anymore, anymore
I don’t want to be like Martha
Captive to every fear and chore
I just want to be like Mary
At Jesus’ feet upon the floor
I just want to be like Mary
And listen at heaven’s healing door

Only in You is peace
Only in You is joy
Only You can love release
And turn all hatred’s ploy

Guide me to my place
Guide me to Thy feet
Guide away from all that takes
My heart from Thy heartbeat

Chorus
I don’t want to be like Martha
Anymore, anymore, anymore
I don’t want to be like Martha
Captive to every fear and chore
I just want to be like Mary
At Jesus’ feet upon the floor
I just want to be like Mary
And listen at heaven’s healing door

Luke 10 KJV
38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, Lord, dost Thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM LOVED (A Song in My Heart)

animal beautiful blue

Whispers of my Father’s love
Permeate my soul
Whispers of His pure, sweet love
Love that transcends all

Feeling oh! so beautiful
Feeling oh! so loved
Gift from heaven’s Wonderful
No longer unloved

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Birdies singing blessed tune
Still flowers blooming
All of nature will be soon
No longer groaning

And as I look to the skies
Whether grey or blue
No more held with Satan’s lies
Child of God, brand new

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Yes, before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

THE SONG OF FORGIVENESS (Song Lyrics)

Heart shines background

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Doesn’t matter who said what
Doesn’t matter who did what
It happened, and now it’s time
For hurting heart wounds to shut

Tears will bring hope to the now
So let go, and you’ll be freed
May those wounds be shut and healed
They’ll no longer ache and bleed

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Don’t be frightened, or afraid
Don’t worry, you’re not alone
The hand of One who loves you
Reaches out now for His own

I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
For all the pain I caused you
If you hurt me, broke my heart
I release and forgive you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Christmas Wings

cardinal flower flower beautiful

On the gentle twilight breeze
The little wings did flutter
Bringing news of wondrous love
The birth of son to mother

A story told long ago
Of hope and expectation
Led the way harmonious
Bearing life’s jubilation

Oh! Hope and do not waver
For the Saviour’s here to stay
He was born that crystal night
Purity amongst the hay

On Christmas wings, they still come
To share a sweet, mournful note
He came to heal broken hearts
Keep love, peace and joy afloat

Christmas wings, love adorning
Midst beauty, or worldly ruin
And time cannot erase them
Hear Jesus call from within

Let’s sing, forever give thanks
Let’s shine, so others will see
’Cause that babe from heaven’s hands
Came to save you, you and me

Near Thy Sweet Haven

storm above sea

My heart aches for you Oh! Lord, in perfection I adore
Perfection of Your endless grace, mercy given to distant shore
Guide me through the narrow gates, shelter me in the wildest storm
Unto me You have freely sent, in fondness perfect form
Unto me You have freely loved, brought my soul back to life and more

Be thou humble when in need
For need is known, and He will lead

Through the troubled nights of late, days are endless, and shadows surrender
Feeling like my prayer has wavered, return, return, return to sender
Neither I delight in and so I cry, send the saving light into the darkness
Let Your star-lights flicker inwards, lighting hope and filling starkness
Unto me be pleased, Your forgiveness, Your forgiving peace to render

Be thou humble when in need
For need is known, and He will lead

Teardrops nestle on Thy word, I have gone a-wandering lonesome
Teach me of Your gentle nature, come into my heart, my Saviour, come
I am weary; but You have promised, never in blindness my steps will be
So I follow Your footsteps, where’s there room for me, room for me
To place my restless foot in time with, Jesus, God’s only begotten Son

Love Forgiven

butterfly flower 01 hd pictures

How can I describe the beauty of His love?
It envelops with the touch of soft velvet
It protects with the fierceness of approaching danger
It surrounds with a peace unseen, unknown
Oh! The Father’s love is love

Love forever grounded
Love forever living
Love everlasting freedom
Love forever giving

Worship Him with wings of song
Let your joy flutter softly heavenwards
Radiantly shining, praise and adoration
Little butterflies of your love
In sweetness a savor floating

Pureness of the early morning dew
The great black cockatoo heralds a brand new day
The wondrous cries in perfect blueness
Reach out and receive Him
He won’t turn away

In the quietness of the day
Stop
Rest. Let His arms softly cradle
Listen for whispers gently spoken
And know the Father’s Word is love

Living Water

beautiful scenery 02 hd picture

Should we never stop to wonder
Of our Saviour’s love for us
Should we never thirst nor hunger
Seek His pardon, that, we must

When our very lives are draining
Into the sea of no return
When we feel like we are drowning
Living water flowing heals us, to You we turn

Please let your Living Water flow
Throughout our lives and in those we know
Cleanse us with Your Living Word
We praise the Lord for the moment first heard

Thank you for drawing us from the darkened pit
Thank you for causing our paths to be lit
Lit by the light of Your immutable Way
Take our hands we might falter, a promise forever, be our stay

Upon the path scattered with countless treasures, love and gold
Too much, too beautiful and in our hands they unfold
For these perfect gifts would slide right out of our lives
Unless our hand is in Your hand, held by scars of strife
-And they will only be ours, when they rest in Your life-
