FAITH WALKS ON (Song Lyrics)

Inspired by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiCtLT-natk

poppies mountain italy

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

When that mountain rises sharply before you
When that mountain is hidden in dark, thick mist
When it seems as though your mountain is on fire
Stand strong dear brother and dear sister, resist

Resist the temptation to keep on circling
Going round and round looking for health restored
You’ve told that mountain to be no more, no more
So move on, walk on, your faith is on record

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

I hear you cry, I need help, I can’t move on
This burden’s too great, it has me tightly bound
It’s all I can remember, it’s been so long
Even forgotten I was lost and then found

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

You can do this, my friend, just take one small step
Turn your ears to hear the voice of your Saviour
He knows your affliction, He knows your sorrows
In His name take that step through the open door

’Cause He’s already defeated every foe
He’s not going to let that mountain defeat you
So stand tall, believe, let your heart beat with His
Just pray, give thanks, and then you’ll walk on anew

Oh! Faith walks on
Sweet faith doesn’t doubt
Faith walks on
Doesn’t keep turning round about
Faith walks on
Can you hear the blessed song
’Cause when faith walks on
You’ll know you’ve been delivered all along
You’ve been delivered all along

FOREVER I SAY I DO (Song Lyrics)

ballet tips dance

Well, I’m standing at the end of the road
I’ve done all I can do
The Lord has brought me here thus far
It’s time to say I do

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

And I’ll keep my blessed eyes steadfast on You
Turn not to left or right
You are the only way, ’tis true
You’re with me in this fight

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

And I’ll keep my blessed ears tuned to Your word
’Cause faith comes by hearing
O remove all that hinders me
Keep me dancing, singing

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

O Jesus, I cannot thank You enough
For life’s eternal rope
And I am blessed, so very blessed
Yes, blessed beyond all hope

You saved me
Healed me
Loved me
Forever I say I do
I do
Forever I say I do

BENEATH THE SILENT WAVES

DSCN0671

Beneath the silent waves
Of yonder distant hill
The wildness of the breeze
Cries listen, and be still

The echoes of new life
Fragrance softly falling
The melody of song
Reveal God, all knowing

Each breath breathes a heartbeat
An emptiness within
A breath captivated
Delivered from its sin

O Taste and see, the Lord
Is good, so many signs
And wonders, all around
Through darkness, He still shines

Beneath those silent waves
Can you hear Him calling
Through waves of circumstance
Trials bring you home, glowing

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR HEART TO JESUS (Song Lyrics)

beautiful sea view

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

The night has seemed never ending
The cold waves, billowing much pain
Through teary eyes you strain to see
Release from whence this turmoil came

You feel so lonely, so alone
Lost in years of buffeting rain
Listen dear child, open your heart
I can hear Him calling your name

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

A ray of hope descends on you
The clouds scatter, and clear a way
Storms leave on the tail of His breath
Our Lord has living words to say

I am the Answer, your Saviour
I am all you’ve been searching for
My love, I’ve finally found you
And I’m bringing you home to shore

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

BECAUSE HE LOVES ME (A Song of Priceless Love)

Because He Loves Me

Into the garden He went
Shed as it were great tears of blood
And He shed a drop for me
Shed a drop in anguish for me

Carried His cross
Which cut into bleeding wounds
And He bore more pain for me
In love bore pain and sickness for me

Raised in humiliation
Was scorned, mocked and jeered
And He watched sorrowfully over me
Watched sorrowfully in sorrow over me

Endured suffocating darkness, so alone
Time’s sin poured into Him
And He emptied my sin from me
Emptied completely the fall from me

Drew His last breath
Crushed, surrendered and torn
And He took that last breath for me
Took that last breath of love for me

Three days of stillness
Battle now over
And He slept wrapped in Father’s love for me
Slept in peace knowing what He’d done for me

Hallelujah, He rose triumphantly
He still bears those scars for me
And He had suffered to set me free
Yes He suffered to bring life eternal to me

And He followed the will of His Father
Yet being God
He could have changed His story
But He loved me so
Didn’t interrupt the flow
Of excruciating agony
To bring Himself glory

Because He loved me
Loves me still
Will forever love me
Gave of His life
Gave of His blood
Gave His sweet heart
For me, my story

Yes He was pallid, weak
And weakness shook Him
Drained of mortality
But He drank the cup of my helplessness
He lived, He died
Praise God He now lives for me

FEAR NOT

blue flowers

I lie awake
My heart is beating
It sings a song
I know it’s waiting
To hear the voice
Of One who loves me
I must be still
Oh heart, be still

Be still from fear
Still from dread
Still from wondering
What’s going on in my head
Still from the trials
Of everyday life
Be still and receive
Be still, receive

’Cause my God has given me
Straight from His heart
So many promises of Fear Nots

Fear Not, a beautiful flower
Full of perfume, and lingering fragrance
Held together in heavenly bunch
Forever, and ever with scarlet red ribbon
Bound to sweet Forget-Me-Not

I know I am loved, I must fear not
I am not abandoned, no, I am not forgotten
He’s planted His gift
Of Fear Nots, Forget-Me-Nots
Deep within the stillness of this willing, waiting heart

COME BOLDLY (Song Lyrics)

stained glass windows

Dig deeper than you’ve ever dug before
Humbly, let your knees, bring you to the floor
Cry out to God, don’t question, just believe
Everything is possible, child, receive

Chorus
Come boldly, the way is now open
Bring your praises, your love to the throne
Perfect love, will heal all that’s broken
And I’m with you, you’re never alone

We’ll reason together, lay it all down
Let forgiveness flow, I’ll give you a crown
Your mind will be clear, you’ll see Me anew
The prayers of the saints, will sweetly come through

Chorus
Come boldly, the way is now open
Bring your praises, your love to the throne
Perfect love, will heal all that’s broken
And I’m with you, you’re never alone

Remember it’s your life, ultimately
That you are accountable for, mercy
And truth will meet, deliver, reconcile
Come My beloved, come sit for awhile

Bridge
See my hand reaching out for you
There’s no need to be afraid
My Word says, don’t you ever fear
Take my hand, know your debts have been paid

Chorus
Come boldly, the way is now open
Bring your praises, your love to the throne
Perfect love, will heal all that’s broken
And I’m with you, you’re never alone

Dig deeper than you’ve ever dug before
Humbly, let your knees, bring you to the floor
Cry out to God, don’t question, just believe
Everything is possible, child, receive

MY LIFE, IT PIERCED YOUR HEART (A Song of the Cross)

Calvary Silhoettte

I stood there at the crossroads
Not knowing which way to turn
Follow the wide, wide road to pleasure
Or step onto the narrow way and of You Jesus, learn

My heart, it beat so loudly
I’m sure the angels could hear
Everyone was moving so quickly
Oh! My soul, make a decision, you have nothing to fear

Chorus
And as You hung there
You took a breath for me
You watched me turn away
It was more than I could bear
Deep within Your heart, a tear fell silently
But You knew that one day I would come to understand
How my life, it had pierced Your heart
Oh! How it had pierced Your heart
And sweet love then tore it apart

Nothing to fear on the narrow
Nothing to fear in Your steps
Just follow the light of Your glory
Fall into Your waiting arms and feel the love in its depths

But the wide road looks clearer
I see around the corner
The narrow way is dark and hidden
If I step on, I might not be able to go further

Chorus
And as You hung there
You took a breath for me
You watched me turn away
It was more than I could bear
Deep within Your heart, a tear fell silently
But You knew that one day I would come to understand
How my life, it had pierced Your heart
Oh! How it had pierced Your heart
And sweet love then tore it apart

Then I heard a still small voice
And the Lord, He took my hand
He helped me take my very first step
Along the now lit, flower strewn way to the Promised Land

Chorus
And as You hung there
You took a breath for me
You watched me turn away
It was more than I could bear
Deep within Your heart, a tear fell silently
But You knew that one day I would come to understand
How my life, it had pierced Your heart
Oh! How it had pierced Your heart
And sweet love then tore it apart

And my burdens, they lifted
As the path before me cleared
Now my eyes could beautifully see
And I listened to angelic songs, like I’d never heard

0h! Jesus, my dear Saviour
Thank you for rescuing me
I’m no longer at the world’s crossroads
Life and peace, love and joy have now drawn me eternally

Yes I pierced Your heart
And my back was turned on You
I totally ignored You
As I went about my day
But You breathed Your dying love
Upon me and opened up my heart
Allowing me to receive all things
All things You now impart
And so I thank you
From the bottom of this new, new heart
This heart You’ve washed and comforted
This heart that cries ‘Thou Art’
I cannot ever fathom
Why You would love me so
But I am ever thankful
Oh! Lord, I love you so
I just want You to know
I just want You, want You to know

THE ROCK WAS STRUCK

water over ice

The Rock was struck, and out flew living water
The Rock was struck, and heaven’s treasures released
How wonderful to the dry parchèd pilgrim
Struggling to lift foot, because pride was increased

The Rock was struck, oh mercy and grace floweth
Man brought low; reluctant eyes summoned above
Heart whining; but body, provision kept whole
Refreshing streams soon quenched, abundant in love

The Rock was struck
The people cried
No more on self
Could one rely
The Rock was struck
But was it so
’Twas commanded
Say to this Rock
Anger prevailed
And promised land
Past veiled eyes sailed

The Rock was struck, instant relief was brought forth
But after awhile, stiff neck, hardened heart whined
We’re all the same, when one truly considers
Are we satisfied, or are we all just blind

The Rock was struck for you, upon Calvary’s tree
The Rock was struck for me, upon Calvary’s tree
This time though, out poured living water and life
Today, hear the truth people, and be set free

The Rock was struck
The people cried
No more on self
Could one rely
The Rock was struck
But was it so
’Twas commanded
Repent, believe
Sorrow prevailed
And promised land
His life, inhaled

1 Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.

2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

3 And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the Lord!

4 And why have ye brought up the congregation of the Lord into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?

5 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto them.

7 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.

9 And Moses took the rod from before the Lord, as He commanded him.

10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?

11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.

12 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed Me not, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the Lord, and he was sanctified in them.

Numbers 20:1-13

CAN I TRUST ME? (SONG LYRICS)

please call me guinea pig highdefinition picture

Chorus
Your arms hold me up
Your breath secures my life
Your love embraces all I am
Your strength dispels all strife

I’ve tried so many times
To surround myself with me
Trust in all I’m capable of
Trust, and rely on me

I can do it, can’t I?
Do everything that is me
Why do I need that someone else?
When I have me, yes me!

I use my eyes to see
And I use my ears to hear
My heart, it beats all by itself
I have myself right here

I go about my day
I know what I am doing
Singing my songs so I listen
Of thoughts full of wooing

I think I’m in control
And everything worships me
Circumstances, they must bow down
Even I worship me

But who am I fooling?
I’m fooling myself, yes me
Oh foolish one, come, see the truth
It’s not me, me, me, ME

Oh! My arms, they hang down
My breath awaits instruction
I’m lost, heartbroken, no pure love
Till strength’s impartation

Chorus
Your arms hold me up
Your breath secures my life
Your love embraces all I am
Your strength dispels all strife
