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

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

I WILL CONQUER THIS MOUNTAIN (Song Lyrics)

eagle landing

Three steps forward, two steps back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

Will I ever conquer
This mountain in front of me
The scenery keeps on changing
I think I’ve reached the top
Then something else
Is in front of me

There are days of pure joy
Welling up inside of me
And I keep moving in Your strength
’Cause it sure ain’t mine, no
This strength is Yours
Sweetly leading me

I will not give up
I will not give up

But there are days of tears
My heart reveals the old me
O Lord, please heal this hidden pain
Take all sorrow, all shame
All unbelief
This burden off me

I will not give up
I will not give up

You did not die in vain
All life’s sin was drained from me
Now I can take Your yoke Jesus
Yoke easy, burden light
And I can climb
As Your hand lifts me

O Yes, I will conquer
This mountain that threatens me
Because Jesus, You’re my Saviour
And this I know, I’m free
You’re by my side
You have rescued me

Three steps forward, one step back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

I will not give up
I will not give up

Three steps forward, no steps back
I did not give up
I did not give up
This day I reached my destiny
This day I reached my destiny

Don’t ever give up
Don’t ever give up

WALKING WITH MY LOVE

flower

Through the dew I see Your face
It reflects the morning sun
The flowers dance
A new romance
And will till the day is done

With each new beckoning light
I’m drawn into the garden
You call my name
My heart’s aflame
With sweet love, and Your pardon

We sit awhile, hand in hand
All burdens, they fly away
Exchanging smiles
Forgetting trials
For now, there’s no need to pray

Come with me, He softly says
I have something, just for you
His eyes glisten
As I listen
And eagerly stand anew

He leads the way, through the trees
I follow, silent behind
Closing my eyes
Sensing the prize
The aroma floods my mind

We’re here, come closer, He says
As loving arms bring me near
Open your heart
Then you will start
To know of My love, My dear

As I stand in awe of Him
I see the still pool glisten
He’s brought me life
Taken my strife
I’m mirroring God’s own Son

Yes, through the green, on to blue
He’s my Shepherd, through and through
Pastures verde
Waters, they see
Beauty’s lyrics, all things new

WHOM MY SOUL LOVETH (Song Lyrics)

walking in blizzard
Chorus
I’m looking for Him whom my soul loveth
Have you seen Him
Have you seen Him
I’ve lost sight of which way to go
Open my eyes Lord
Let Your love flow
Let Your love flow

Why art thou cast down my soul
Find your hope, dig deep and see
Just look to the Lord, and live
Without hope, you’ll never be free

I’m wandering and searching
For the peace of my True Love
My eyes, they’d lost His image
Looking back, instead of above

I should, should have been watching
Stepping into safe footprints
Instead, burdens consumed me
I was drawn by loved ones’ imprints

Chorus
I’m looking for Him whom my soul loveth
Have you seen Him
Have you seen Him
I’ve lost sight of which way to go
Open my eyes Lord
Let Your love flow
Let Your love flow

I miss His sweet breath on me
The fragrance of sacrifice
I long to hear His heartbeat
It beats for me, He paid the price

And those secret garden walks
Where He took my hand in His
Oh! Where are You my dear Lord
Come back, because my love’s amiss

Then suddenly I hear Him
I see His beautiful form
He’d opened my eyes, and ears
My blurred vision, he did transform

Bridge
Well, Jesus, You’d been here all along
It was me I’d lost, I’d lost, I’d lost
Lost myself in the world’s confusion
Daily surrounded by delusion
Thank you Lord for finding me
Thank you Lord for setting me free
Yes, You’ve set me free, free, free
Yes, You’ve set me free

The truth is
You found me so I could find You
You found me so I could find You

You found me

So I could find You

TEARS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

mirror effect

Looking in the mirror
Who is it that I see
Not always someone beautiful
Staring back at me

And I search for changes
Trying to find the joy
Make myself to smile, masking tears
They fall, drowning joy

Why is it difficult
To see me as You do
The image is so distorted
Please Lord, show me new

Let all the hidden pain
That’s etched so deep within
Rise to the surface, and be gone
Your child will then win

Chorus
Father, let Your tears of mercy cover mine
May they flow through the long-lost hurts, pain, and fears
Flow through valleys, bear much fruit upon the vine
Bringing life to replace my forgotten years
New life to replace all the joy quenching tears

Yes, this child will then win
I’ll see myself clearly
Clothed in Your perfect righteousness
And washed from my sin

I’ll look in the mirror
I’ll see Your reflection
Then I’ll finally see myself
Through Your salvation

My countenance will change
My face, it radiates
Seeing clearly for the first time
Just as Your Word states

That I am forgiven
In Christ I have it all
Through Father’s eyes of love, I see
Me, before the Fall

Chorus
Father, let Your tears of mercy cover mine
May they flow through the long-lost hurts, pain and fears
Flow through valleys, bear much fruit upon the vine
Bringing life to replace my forgotten years
Life to replace all of my forgotten years
New life to replace all the joy quenching tears

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
