A LITTLE CHILD’S SONG

vector 3 lovely children

A little child, I am
I take my Father’s hand
He leads me where, I do not know
Nor where I understand

But I do know that I am safe
And will be comforted
For He has promised always
With His love, I’ll be led

I may be only tiny
In the world’s blinded eyes
Yet, in Him, I am mighty
I won’t listen to the lies

We stroll along the seashore
We lie down in pastures green
Beside the still, clear waters
The prettiest I’ve ever seen

He sings to me, sings over me
With a voice so beautifully pure
The words fill my very being
Of His love, I am sure

Up rugged mountains steep
And through the stormy seas
Along the valley’s deep, deep floor
You’ll often find me on my knees

Each day I am discovering
All that He’s done for me
His name is Jesus, Jesus
The One who helped me see

Let me tell you a little story
I thought I knew Him all along
Then one day, many years ahead
I broke forth in brand new song

I’ll sing it now, won’t be a moment
Just need to find my singing voice
Sit with us awhile, sit down in peace
You’ll fall in love, you’ll have no choice

And it goes like this, are you ready
A one, a two, a three
If you’d like to join in with us
We won’t worry about the key

’Cause the melody in heaven
Will flow down upon our heads
Fill our being to overflowing
And mend all of life’s loose threads

‘Jesus, You came
You came, You came for me
I may have been the only one
Still You came for me
I am so very precious
I’m the apple of Your eye
And there’s nothing I can do
No, nothing I can ever do
To make You love me more
Everything is finished
Nothing more is to be done
And that is why, You, my Lord
My whole heart, You have won
Jesus, You came
You came, You came for me’

See, how easy was that
Like a little child and father
So come walk with us to the eternal door
One day those searching steps will go no farther

Remember the distant garden
When innocence filled the air
Know that you are loved and cherished
Father wants to take you back there

Oh! Won’t you let Him take you back
Let Him take you back, don’t be afraid
Take His hand, He’ll take you back

Today a Little Part of Me Flew Away

Baby Swallows.jpg

Today a little part of me flew away
Tears
I’d been watching from a distance
Watching your mumma and papa
Lovingly build a safe place for you
Little by little the little nest grew
Upon a solid foundation, they took it in turns
Bringing perfect substance day by day
Until one day, your home was ready
I watched as they swooped our inquisitive kitten
Guarding over your delicate shells bearing life
As if your very life depended upon it
And it did
They sat upon you so faithfully
Smothering you with love
Then one day, life broke free
Little by little you grew
Into the sweetest little twins
And mumma and papa loved you so much
I saw little open mouths, always fed
I saw gifts of creation, love and tenderness
Then you were all grown up, and sitting upon the edge
Day by day I watched and waited
Not wanting you to leave
I took this photo yesterday
I’m so pleased I did
Because today, you’re no longer there
I missed saying goodbye
Today you are gone
Today a little part of me flew away
Joy in tears
’Cause I know you are safe
And that which flew away
Has been replaced with a gentleness
Thankfulness and love for my Father, my heavenly Father

Mumma’s still hanging around though
Maybe your siblings are soon to arrive
And again, sweet life will bless both them
And me
As I see His beautiful hand of love
Reach out, just outside our bedroom door

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

I’LL SEND COMFORT ACROSS YOUR PATH (Song Lyrics)

008 (2)

I’ve seen you crying so many times
The bottle I hold is nearly full
My child, I’m soon placing My rainbow
Across the skies in your heart so dull

You’ve battled across the deepest sea
Even the waves threatened to hide you
But still I was there and all along
Holy Spirit was leading you through

Chorus
Trust in Me and in Me only
I’ll send comfort across your path
Keep your eyes in My direction
And you’ll know safety with My staff

I saw you when your arms where flailing
I heard you when you had no strength to cry
I knew and held every last weakness
And I bound you so you wouldn’t die

Yes there’s a safe path, it’s just for you
And I laid it before you knew me
For to bring you through the storms of life
In wholeness and healed completely

Chorus
Trust in Me and in Me only
I’ll send comfort across your path
Keep your eyes in My direction
And you’ll know safety with My staff

Through the Eyes of A Child

http://www.FathersLoveLetter.com

sleeping baby on a hand

Father, please give me
The faith of a little child
Sprinkle beams of love
Calm every place that’s wild

Take me back to innocence
Where dreams brought pure joy
Wipe every falling tear
Your power in me, employ

Oh! How I long
To hear my Father’s voice
To see His hand in mine
To love Him, that’s my choice

No distractions, no fear
A learning playtime life
The brilliance of His creation
Washing away all strife

To see the flower
As the little bee sees
To smell the rose
As the air is fragranced
To speak of His love
As the singing birds do
To bask in the sunshine
To reflect soft moonlight
To breathe deep
With anticipation
Of adventures to come
Presents to open
Friends to share
Life
Abounding each day
To be given the love
The love of a Father
And know
I am His child
Safe
Loved
Wanted
Cherished

Father
Make me to be
Your little child
No matter my age
I can still love You
With the heart of an adult
Through the eyes of a child

There will be no judgment
No ‘I want that’
No ‘I won’t do it’
No ‘You can’t make me’
For, through the eyes of a child
Everything just happens
One way or another
One day or another
And this child
Won’t question
This child will believe
That my Father
Knows everything
Has everything
Will do anything
Anything, for me
His child
All the time
His Word
Embraces me

Father, that prayer
I sent heavenwards
Please give me childlike faith
Was answered long ago
Before I even asked
I know this as I write
It’s already mine
I don’t need to ask for it
It’s deep, deep inside
So, sorry for asking
You planted it
When, my life
I gave, I gave to Thine

OUR NEW SONG …I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE MARTHA ANYMORE … PLEASE LISTEN AND BE BLESSED

Just nine days ago, my sweet friend Kathleen from http://www.kathleensfaithwalk.com commented on this post saying we had another song. Well, here it is … Amazing grace … Another precious gift from above. Thank you Lord. To God be the glory, may it bless many.

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.

Missing You Dear Friend

cute cat and dog picture 2

When distance flies between us
When old time, it flutters by
When seasons choose to leave us
When hello becomes goodbye

When telephones stop ringing
When the letterbox seems sad
When emotions are silent
When relationships go bad

Oh! That’s the way of the stranger
Please don’t let our hearts disconnect
I’m here for you still, my dear friend
May our strong bond, sweet love, reflect

It doesn’t mean we have to speak daily
It doesn’t mean flowers have to be sent
It doesn’t mean we must know everything
Just having you in my life … I’m content

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 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

BECAUSE I NEEDED YOU (Song Lyrics)

I wrote these lyrics for you, my dear husband. Yes, you were sent to me because I needed you … I still do … and I always will. Happy 32nd Wedding Anniversary from the depths of my heart.

heart love label 07 vector

A long time ago
Such long times gone past
Seasons that I knew
So many places
So many faces
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the summers
Heat which took my breath
Shadows that I knew
Searching for shelter
Dry heart (a)swelter
And then came you, you

All through the autumns
Leaves aglow with change
Sadness that I knew
Coolness of night air
Hard burden to bear
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the winters
Even without snow
Numbness that I knew
Watching time go by
Hearing my heart’s sigh
And then came you, you

All through the springtimes
New hope (a)calling
Fragrance that I knew
A love harmony
Sudden melody
’Cause along came you

Because I needed you
Needed another beat
Songs of my heart were lost
You came, now I’m complete
You came, now I’m complete

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine
