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

RESURRECTION POWER (Song Lyrics)

20181225_070806.jpg

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power

Because in Him I die
Because in Him I die
Yet I live
Christ lives in me

Victory rise up in me
Listen to His Word
Take all that He’s given you
All you’ve learnt, and heard

Don’t listen to what man says
When the doors seem shut
Rise, rise up sweet victory
All chains have been cut

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power

Breathe in His beautiful life
Stand on solid ground
Let His pure heart beat within
Know love has been found

Take Living Bread, and Water
In all things give praise
Father, Son, Holy Spirit
With One Voice, life raise

Because in Him I die
Because in Him I die
Yet I live
Christ lives in me

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power
Resurrection power

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 IS MY TAPESTRY (Song Lyrics)

background with flower and butterfly

Chorus
Every day I sow upon the tapestry of my life
Some days the view is clear
Some days confusion reigns
I have a choice which vision will be revealed
O Lord, help me to see, Your plan for me, unfold

When clouds of grey are looming
When darkness overwhelms
The colours of my rainbow
Are lost in twisted looms

The broken branches reach out
Cast shadows on my mind
No melody from sweet bird
No peace of any kind

As tears wash away joy’s light
I sow continually
So blind to reality
It’s not God’s plan for me

Underneath this tapestry
This tapestry of life
When I, to my flesh do sow
Will bring nothing but strife

Chorus
Every day I sow upon the tapestry of my life
Some days the view is clear
Some days confusion reigns
I have a choice which vision will be revealed
O Lord, help me to see, Your plan for me, unfold

Where is the beautiful side
Of this life given me
I must acknowledge His word
And sow more faithfully

By faith, sow to His Spirit
And let God’s palette flow
Across the landscape of time
Radiate with joy’s glow

I see now, this perfect side
Lord, the Son is shining
The shadows have been hidden
Our lives, now aligning

And the tree is now blooming
Branches healed, and restored
Scented blossoms overflow
Harmony’s notes record

Chorus
Every day I sow upon the tapestry of my life
Some days the view is clear
Some days confusion reigns
I have a choice which vision will be revealed
O Lord, help me to see, Your plan for me, unfold

SONG ON MY HEART

duck pond australian duck

I woke up this morning with a glorious song on my heart
There were no words to this melody
But the sweet birds were singing their part

And as I listened, I heard His voice, calling softly to me
Today is the day of salvation
When dear loved ones will come unto Me

I feel something wonderful is happening, even though I
See nothing particularly changed
There is a new softness drawing nigh

Oh I woke up this morning with a brand new song on my heart
Whether I see change today, or not
Soon something beautiful will impart

YOU FOUND ME IN THE GARDEN (Song Lyrics)

woman and roses

Chorus
You found me in the garden
I was crying
You drew me close to Your side
You dried my tears
And told me I am loved

I went into the garden
I could no longer contain
The struggles within
I had to run away
From myself

’Cause I had tried to pretend
That all was perfectly well
Tears I kept hidden
Were silently pooling
And stagnant

But I knew that I had heard
Your sweet voice, so long ago
And I went searching
Into my heart’s garden
By the rose

And there I felt Your whisper
The gentleness of the breeze
At last I found home
I was safe and secure
In Your peace

Chorus
You found me in the garden
I was crying
You drew me close to Your side
You dried my tears
And told me I am loved

Rescued But Still Needy

Rescued But Still Needy

Maybe many of you know this
But the Lord showed me something today
That even when He draws near us
The troubles may still be in the way

Oh! I know all about walking in fire
And how He lovingly shields us within
But today when I read about Peter
Here lies more treasure for us to win

For you see when He cried out “Lord save me”
The precious Saviour, His hand did reach
But there’s a little word that comes soon after
The word, ‘when’ and oh! how this can teach

For immediately He did rescue him
But it wasn’t until into the boat, they were
That the boisterous seas a-calmed
And the waves with His peace did a-stir

Yes, He comes to you in troubles
And helps you to see them through
So don’t always expect instantaneous release
Just know that He’s holding and protecting you

“And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water.
And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, Of a truth Thou art the Son of God.”
Matthew 14:25-33 KJV
