ON ANGEL WINGS (YT)

ON ANGEL'S WINGS

One day soon, we’ll be in glory
Far beyond the reach of mortal man
No more crying or unrelenting pain
Just following in the footsteps of the great I AM

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

One day soon, we’ll see His face
A face that once beheld no beauty
A face so broken, so broken
Man could not look upon Him without feeling guilty

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

One day soon dear Lord, one day
Even those whose guilt did not pierce them
At the cross, at the cross, will bow
And confess that Jesus is Lord, heaven’s priceless gem

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

The pearls, the gold, the jewels above
The gift of life that God’s sweet love brings
Until then when we meet Him there
The gifts of our dear Saviour shine on angel wings

On angel wings, on angel wings
Lord lift and surround us with angel wings
With angel wings, with angel wings
Laced with the treasures of His grace as heaven sings

I’LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN (A Song of Hope and Love and Peace) … My Rendition

I'LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord are You there?
Oh! Lord do You care?
I can’t see You
How can I possibly find You
If my eyes are closed and looking elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I need help
Oh! Lord I need help
I can’t hear You
How can I possibly know You
When my ears are blocked with the world’s care?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord where are you?
Oh! Lord here I am
I can’t feel You
How can I possibly trust You
When my heart is so cold and drawn elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I do hurt
Oh! Lord I’m afraid
No fragrance abounds
How can I possibly sense You
When each breath is clothed in darkness’s fear?

Bridge
Blue emotions unveiled before me
Tears clear a way for the peace of Your steps
Now I know that my Saviour adores me
And forever I’m wonderfully kept

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And I whispered, dear Lord
I will never fear again
I’ll never be alone again
No, I’ll never be alone again

WHEN JOY CAME A-CALLING (Me Singing the Song of a Happy Heart) … HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hi everyone,
I’m being very brave here … singing for all the world to see. I could pick out all of the flaws; but I won’t. I had fun singing it (I did try to do it again; but it just wasn’t the same. Sometimes ‘perfection’ is just not meant to be). My prayer is that this will bring a smile, and a maybe a little flutter of joy, if but to one beating heart across this vast place we call home.

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart rejoices
This happy heart, it sings
This happy heart remembers
The joy-bells that it rings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart releases
This happy heart, it brings
This happy heart renounces
Blueness no longer clings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart’s reclining
This happy heart, it springs
This happy heart reconciles
With the heart of my King’s

Bridge
Joy, it leaves
Sometimes for a season
Then it returns
And brings with it
Love and peace and healing
Yes, sweet love and peace and healing

This happy heart reconfirms
This happy heart has wings
This happy heart reaffirms
This happy, happy heart

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

Happy New Year Everyone

CHRISTMAS JOY IS HERE TO STAY (A Song of Promise)

christmas tree 05 vector

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your fireplace
As you smile at the presents
But don’t feel His presence the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A small place in your heart
As you sing of His sweet Name
A sweet Name not heard through the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your table
As you feed on too many things
And avoid heavenly Bread the rest of the year?

Bridge
Oh! He will always be here
The Tree of Life He offers you
The Light of heaven will ever shine forth
The Joy of heaven fills each day anew

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

ON THE EVE OF A MIRACLE (A New Christmas Song with Lyrics)

On the eve of a miracle
When hopelessness cried silently
The people’s hearts, they were breaking
Waiting for promised liberty

So many years had passed them by
Each Mother, Father shared the news
But life grew harder, tears fell too
Where is He, the King of the Jews

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

Then pure love shone forth one dark night
Salvation wrapped in perfection
He appeared; but they didn’t know
He was sent for adoration

Oh! Little Babe of Bethlehem
They desired to seek Your sweet face
Forgive them not recognizing
Heaven’s gift of mercy and grace

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

When eyes were shut, they couldn’t see
Or know what they were waiting for
Open eyes Lord, that we may see
The promises You have in store

And so it is, for us today
Longing for light in the dark night
And longing for needs to be met
Body, soul and spirit tonight

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day
Yes, He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

PLEASE HUG THEM (My Prayer For All Who Are Going Through Extreme Trials)

Today I repost this, lifting up in particular, all in the terrible California fires. Those who have lost their homes, their furry friends, their possessions, their livestock, their livelihood, the tireless service men and women … May you be comforted and even though the winds and flames rage, may the peace of the living God flood and quench the internal flames of fear, desperation, hopelessness. In Jesus precious Name. Amen.

I dedicate this precious song to all who are trapped or feel like they are trapped in circumstances beyond their control. I think of the fires, the floods, abuse, addictions, hunger, thirst, loneliness, homelessness, unemployment, sickness, loss of loved ones … any situation where you’ve lost all hope …

silhouette woman tree

PLEASE HUG THEM (for those who are hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst, poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despair without income
Families torn, separated
Floods, fires and storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Among them that are so close
Feeling left behind and worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Bridge
Hug them as they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees lower to the floor
And with joy they praise and adore

So that is why I cry now
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Lord, reveal Your great Name

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away
And take their pain away

HEAR THE BABE (Christmas Song Lyrics)

christmas nativity scene

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

As Mary sings her lullaby, creation watches on
Born in lowly manger, majesty in one so young

Watching tenderly over Him, she wipes away the tear
A tear reflecting hope, reflection of brightest star

My dearest son, I love you so, many will follow you
But many won’t believe, that truth will lead them through

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

The bed upon which you do lay, will bring them to their knees
From ages to ages, each life will one day see

You cannot express your love yet; yet love is not hidden
Waiting for you Jesus, praise God, eyes have beholden

Rest up, sweet one, take your slumber, the time will surely come
When all humanity, will go, or with you, be one

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, angelic shout

YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR (Song Lyrics)

plant growing in desert

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

Sometimes You lovingly lead us
Away from all things that we know
Take us to places far away
You lead us, a new life to show

We think it’s for us, this leading
To lift us from adversity
But we reach the destination
And sense loss of security

And then You bring a hurting one
They meet us by the water’s edge
And all that You’ve ever shown us
Flows, and washes away pain’s hedge

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

We cry oh! Lord, why is this so
We’re struggling, we need help as well
Now there’s more brokenness to heal
But that’s when You say, ‘All is well’

I’ve already lifted you out
Out of the dark well of despair
Your purging is done, you are free
’Tis for them that I bought you here

And I will come, deliver them
Bring forth life from the seeds you’ve sown
And in your sweet obedience
Richer days, I will walk you home

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name
