CHRISTMAS FOR THE BROKENHEARTED (A Song of Hope)

MILO

Chorus
When no-one calls to wish you a merry Christmas
When no-one’s there with you to share
When love is elusive, a long time a-coming
Come unto Me and know My care
Oh! Just come unto Me anytime, anywhere

Calling all who have no-one to trust
Calling all who have lost joy’s hope
Calling all whose friends have long gone
There’s a Christmas for the brokenhearted
No more will love be hidden, departed

Chorus
When no-one calls to wish you a merry Christmas
When no-one’s there with you to share
When love is elusive, a long time a-coming
Come unto Me and know My care
Oh! Just come unto Me anytime, anywhere

Never give up when you’re alone
Never give up when your heart’s cold
Never give up when sadness calls
Never give up, I won’t give up
There’s a Christmas for the brokenhearted
No more will love be hidden, departed

Chorus
When no-one calls to wish you a merry Christmas
When no-one’s there with you to share
When love is elusive, a long time a-coming
Come unto Me and know My care
Oh! Just come unto Me anytime, anywhere

Bridge
Oh! Even when the snow it falls
And settles upon your life that’s stalled
Look past the fragile side of the season
Know that you are loved
And that I am the reason
Yes, know that you are loved
And that I am the reason

Chorus
When no-one calls to wish you a merry Christmas
When no-one’s there with you to share
When love is elusive, a long time a-coming
Come unto Me and know My care
Oh! Just come unto Me anytime, anywhere

THIS STARRY NIGHT (Christmas Song Lyrics)

Elegant Christmas tree

It has all been leading up to this
This beautiful night, this starry night
The story unfolds, salvation comes
Mankind’s sin, in love, to send to flight

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

Beautiful night, a new beginning
Love permeates the earth and darkness
We didn’t comprehend our great need
Till opened eyes saw we were heartless

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

In truth, love and joy, we have this hope
None other could have ever given
Immanuel, Christ with us, He came
So one day we could be forgiven

Come hear the little babe
Come see His wonderful Name
God came down
Pure love adorned
A babe fit for His future crown

This starry night, upon lonely hill
That hears a shepherd cry
The sheep find comfort
This starry night
Creation breaks forth
Hallelujah
Triumphant cry

HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE (A Song for Those Who Have Lost Their Way)

Of all that the Lord has given me to place before you, this has to be one of my favourites. I pray that it will bless you sweetly and speak to the very depths of your heart. He is our Shepherd. We are the sheep of His pasture and He loves us more than we can ever know.

To those who don’t know Him, please don’t wait another day to receive His gift of salvation and eternal life. To those who are wandering, seeking fulfillment, peace and happiness along your own path, don’t wait another day to hearken unto His call. Come unto Him. Now. He’s calling your name. Cry out, audibly or silently from a broken heart and He will answer. There is nothing to be afraid of. Let go. Let God. Your life will never be the same.

new born lamb

HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Who’s lost its lonesome way
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Went out in the world to play

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

My heart is beating fast Lord
There’s danger all around
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Bleating desperately to be found

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

Strayed once too often, now all alone
In fields, uncertain and oh! so cold
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Forgive me and bring me into Your fold

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

I see You now Lord, Your arms are open wide
And tenderly You lift me
This little lamb’s now by Your side
I’m just a little lamb Lord
A little lamb, now with a peaceful heart
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Now safe knowing we’ll never be apart

Chorus
Oh! I stand before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
You’ve hidden me in Your arms Lord
I’m hidden in the pasture of Your love

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

LOVE IS LOVE AND LOVE JUST LOVES (A Song of Love)

Love is Love and Love Just LovesWhen love has gone amissing
When love, it just don’t care
When comfort belongs in memories
And your life, with pain it shares
Just remember that the love that’s given you
It loves because it’s love
And love won’t ever sacrifice
Unless love tears love apart

Chorus
Bound, bound
I want to love as love can only love
In freedom
Bound, bound
Shed Your light, bind this love
In the gift of Your freedom

Love finds its way
Through many a tear
Shed on the battlefield of time
Love is Love
And love just loves
And mends the broken heart

Chorus
Bound, bound
I want to love as love can only love
In freedom
Bound, bound
Shed Your light, bind this love
In the gift of Your freedom

Cherish and hold tightly
This gift not often found
The world’s love may pass you by
But with God’s love, your heart will be bound

Bound, bound
Yes, free from the bondage that an empty heart brings
Bound, bound
And because of Your love, this love’s heart
Heart’s love can now sing

AND I WILL SOAR (Song Lyrics)

eagle landing

Chorus

And I will soar

To heights not known before

I will soar

And touch the face of my Lord

I will soar

All fear will go

For I am loved

Adored

 

When I look without looking

And hear without hearing

All around me, it fades away

But through the dense fog

I discern His sweet voice

Come with Me, come with Me, this a way

 

When I touch without touching

And taste without tasting

I miss the wonders of today

But through the dense fog

I discern His sweet voice

Come with Me, come with Me, this a way

 

Awake dear sweet child, awake

His presence don’t forsake

Oh! Come drink of His fragrance grand

And through the dense fog

You’ll discern His sweet voice

Come with Me, come with Me, make a stand

 

And as the eagle

Beautiful and bold

I will soar

To freedom untold

Riches unfolding

New life before me

Joy in His presence

Forevermore

 

Chorus

And I will soar

To heights not known before

I will soar

And touch the face of my Lord

I will soar

All fear will go

For I am loved

Adored

Security in Troubled Times, Psalm 91 and My Poem ‘Through the Fire’

Shelter from the Storm 2

THROUGH THE FIRE
Blessed Saviour,
In this fiery trial You are,
Taking our hands and our hearts,
Protecting us from despair,
Leading us through the furnace,
Quenching the heat with living water,
Strengthening us always daily,
Sheltering us from billowing flame,
Catching us should we stumble,
Feeding us with food eternal,
Loving us so abundantly,
Forgiving us as we don’t deserve,
Keeping us with comfort and hope.

Blessed Saviour,
In this fiery trial we are,
In this fiery trial we are tried,
Thank you for Your presence Lord,
Thank you for Your promises Lord.

In this fiery trial no burn will touch us,
No scar will burden us,
No fear will hurt us,
No heat will scorch us,
No circumstance will break us,
Not completely; but mold us,
Weaknesses will melt away,
Hidden and known sin will be burnt off,
Things that mar our walk with Jesus,
Will fall to nothing on ground beneath us,
And love will win, His love and honour,
Grace and mercy will clothe us, meet us,
Loving Father, to this we offer,
Sheltered in Your eternal togetherness,
Yes, we will come through this fire of trial,
In strength, in health, in life. Hallelujah.

Psalm 91

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

 

GIVE ME A HEART TO LOVE YOU, LORD (A Prayerful Song) … Please listen


GIVE ME A HEART TO LOVE YOU, LORD

Give me a heart to love You, Lord
A heart that will always care
Care when I can’t feel Your presence, Lord
But knows You’re forever there

Give me a heart that can love You, Lord
A heart that without You can’t love
Love when the skies are in darkness, Lord
But knows the sweet blessings above

Give me a heart that is able, Lord
To love You unconditionally
Something I could never do, Lord
Unless Your Spirit’s made His home in me

Oh! Give me a heart to love You, Lord
As only Love’s love can love
Bind it with chords of tenderness, Lord
Lift it heavenward on the wings of the Dove
