THE POWER OF LOVE (Song Lyrics)

coastline

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Each stone, a victory, moving forward through the trials
Coming against adversity, the evil one and his wiles

With each breath I take
With each beat of my heart
I give You thanks dear Lord
Thank you for loving me
Before I even knew You
Thank you for forgiving me
When I knew no forgiveness
Thank you for sending Jesus
He’s now my Lord and Saviour
I praise You in the power of Your love

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Each stone, a victory, moving forward through the trials
Coming against adversity, the evil one and his wiles

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Wrapped in sweet peace, love shelters under eternal wings
Perfect love, bearing, believing, hoping and enduring all things

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

Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.”

STAY CLOSE TO ME

sleeping baby on a hand

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

O child
Sweet child
I know it’s hard
I see your tears
Come closer
Feel my arms around you
My peace is yours
Can you believe?
Can you receive?
I love you so much
You
I am your Creator
I know your pain
I know your heart’s desire
I know your struggles
Come closer

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

Sometimes
You have to let go
Even of those you love
I have them
I love them
More than you could ever know
Let go
Take my hand
It’s your life with me
They have their own
They have to find
And be found
Of Me
You cannot do it all
You cannot save them
You can only love them
And point them to Me
Through your love for Me

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

Come closer

YOU’RE ALMOST THERE (SONG LYRICS)

woman running

One day, so very soon
Joy is going to break forth
Release will come
It’s waiting
For you to just let go

It’s climbed the highest mountains
Pushed through rugged forest floors
Sailed the stormy waters
So far from distant shores

Seen driest desert regions
Where the flowers couldn’t bloom
Felt deepest darkness where
No birdsong broke the gloom

Listened to the silent voice
Cried out for deliverance
And waited patiently
To break forth in joy’s dance

Days and days and years, still more
When will unending trials end
Very soon, very soon
To you, healing I send

One day, so very soon
Joy is going to break forth
Release will come
It’s waiting
For you to just let go

Let go, My child, let go, and
Open wide your heart to Me
I sent My Word to heal
Now receive Calvary

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

BE THANKFUL IN ALL THINGS

highdefinition picture of the beautiful flowers 01

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

I bring you comfort through my word
Come child, do not be afraid
Lift prayer through the heat of the flame
And requests for answers made

And weave thanksgiving into them
I’ll see your obedience
It doesn’t matter how you feel
Trust I’ll come to your defence

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

Some days may be overwhelming
But I’ve experienced all
Remember, victory is yours
And I’ll catch you if you fall

Peace will come, and settle each need
And then My strength in you will
Manifest, and you’ll say good-bye
To fear, so please, ‘Just be still’

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

Let My peace find the hidden pain
Let it bring sweet love again
Wash away the enemy’s stain
For you, I lived, then was slain

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN (Song Lyrics)

asian beauty

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

When someone you love isn’t with you
And vast oceans keep hearts apart
When wheels of pain gather momentum
You might feel hopeless; but look up

When a dream is not being fulfilled
And that hope, it has flown away
You’re not well enough to see it through
But it’s a new day, just look up

Pain can shatter vulnerable hearts
If not held together with love
Don’t let pain leave lasting legacies
Push through that sorrow, and look up

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

We all, in unexpected moments
Are trapped in emotional pain
Sometimes physical, spiritual too
Some totally immersed, look up

Pain hurts, buries deep beyond the core
It hides, and thinks no one’s watching
Then the notes of melancholy play
Isolating bonds, oh! look up

Frozen tears silence intensity
You cry till you can cry no more
But dear one, our Healer is so close
Find the strength to cry one more tear

Oh! Find the strength to cry one more tear

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … Kathleen and My New Song

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

JESUS HAS MY DESTINY (Song Lyrics)

red valentine heart on dot background vector image

I have all things I need in me
All I was created to be
Nothing lacking and this I see
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

Yes Jesus has my destiny
He’s paid the price and set me free
Love forever, He’s captured me
And through cleansed eyes, I now can see

Yes through cleansed eyes, I now can see
How Jesus paid the penalty
Once I played disobediently
On life’s road, it disgusted me

On life’s road, it disgusted me
How I could live so carelessly
Praise God, He nailed it to the tree
Triumphantly, at Calvary

Triumphantly, at Calvary
My old life has abandoned me
Now living life has flooded me
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

Yes Jesus has my destiny
My destiny, my destiny
Yes Jesus came to rescue me
With all heaven’s sovereignty

I have all things I need in me
All I was created to be
Nothing lacking and this I see
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

I’M WAITING BY THE POOL OF HEALING (Song Lyrics)

Dedicated to all who need a touch of pure love and healing from the only One who can truly heal. The Healer Himself. Our heavenly Father, in the beautiful name of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit …

blue water drops

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

So many years I’ve waited
Blindly trying many paths
Always hoping that it would be my turn
But alas, others had the joys and laughs

Day after day after day
Month after month after year
Wallowing in much concealed self-pity
Kept in bondage by hidden lies and fear

Feeling disheartened and sad
Wondering how to go on
Able to read of His grace and mercy
But still unable to sing my heart’s song

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

But then one day the light shone
Shone though it never had dimmed
The light was always upon His sweet Word
And now my heart saw what my eyes had skimmed

I went to the healing pool
Again nothing had it changed
But there for the first time I met Jesus
Who’d come searching for me where I now laid

And as He said to this child
Child, do you want to be well
I answered and said, I’m listening dear Lord
Only You can lift from this place I fell

My heart listened
My eyes glistened
My Saviour lent down in love
I’m here for you now
And I’ve always been
I’ve just waited for you to look above

Rise, take up your bed and walk
And in His strength I could do
Something that years had prevented me from
Rising up, going forth into things new

Chorus
Oh! I waited by the pool of healing
Waited for someone to lift me in
Watched others, they went before me
They were healed and I no longer wait; ’cause
In my greatest need as the tears fell
Jesus healed me before I went in
