YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … (Please Listen and Be Blessed)

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 brought 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

HE IS IN THE DELAYS (Song Lyrics)

seagulls waiting for fog to lift
Chorus
Do not fret My darling child
’Cause your time is coming soon
Not in your time; but in Mine
In the meantime, sing faith’s tune

He’s in the delays when you’re hurt
He’s in the delays when you’re sad
He’s in the delays of waiting
Waiting for your heart to be glad

Chorus
Do not fret My darling child
’Cause your time is coming soon
Not in your time; but in Mine
In the meantime, sing faith’s tune

He’s in the delays of sorrow
He’s in the delays of love lost
He’s in the delays of silence
Silence when your tears are like frost

Bridge
Faith’s tune will never leave you
Faith’s tune will pour in new strength
Faith’s tune wraps your heart in love
God’s love with height, depth and length

And Winter covers His footsteps
But don’t give up, You’ll find Him there
Soon Spring will melt every trial
And blossoms will fragrance the air

Chorus
Do not fret My darling child
’Cause your time is coming soon
Not in your time; but in Mine
In the meantime, sing faith’s tune

YOUR WORD IS ALIVE (Song Lyrics)

flock of sheep sheep group

Soft as a lullaby
You sweetly sing to me
Whispering words of love
In childlike melody

Breeze through forest treetop
A gentle mountain stream
Sunlight, moonlight and stars
Sometimes through silent dream

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

Hills of verdant pasture
Sheep sleeping, they’re content
Stormy clouds, they gather
Peals of thunder, they rent

Over valley roaring
The leaping flames of fire
Burning deep within me
Bring wisdom to inspire

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

Yes Lord, Your living word
No matter the volume
Brings life, abundant life
With which our hearts commune

Alive, alive, alive
Living, Your word brings life
Pierces deepest darkness
And drives out every strife

Bridge
Calling, calling
You call my name
I’m not the same
I hear Your voice
I hear You call
You call my name

Lord
Here I am

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

Way Back in 2013 … My Very First Song Lyrics … I LEAVE IT IN THE HANDS OF THE LORD

My First Song
I leave it in the hands of the Lord
Leave my life in the hands of the Lord
And even though they’re pierced
He will not let me fall
Through the nail pier-ced hands of the Lord

Chorus:
For He’s seen it all and He’s always loved me
He’s seen it all, yes My Saviour loves me
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all and He’ll always love me

I lift my feet to step beside the Lord
Lift weary feet to step beside the Lord
And even though they’re pierced
He will not let me stall
Behind the nail pier-ced feet of the Lord

Chorus:
For He’s seen it all and He’s always loved me
He’s seen it all, yes My Saviour loves me
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all and He’ll always love me

I open misty eyes to see the beauty of the Lord
Open through many tears to see the beauty of the Lord
And even though beauty was marred
He will not to me reveal all
Covers His pain with love in the beauty of the Lord

Chorus:
For He’s seen it all and He’s always loved me
He’s seen it all, yes My Saviour loves me
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all
He’s seen it all and He’ll always love me

FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN (Song Lyrics)

yorkshire dales

Chorus
And as I sing songs of thanksgiving
You breathe joy into all I’m living
You’ve taken my sins, all forgiving
My life in Yours Jesus, believing
I’m falling in love again

So many trials You’ve brought me through
So many I’m unaware
Of ways in which Your providence
Brings sweet endings which we share

And I’m falling in love again
With the Word who made me whole
Draw me into Your waiting arms
Heal me spirit, body, soul

Chorus
And as I sing songs of thanksgiving
You breathe joy into all I’m living
You’ve taken my sins, all forgiving
My life in Yours Jesus, believing
I’m falling in love again

Walk with me, talk with me, and stay
Always, be close by my side
Tell me of wondrous things You’ve done
Reveal this place I can hide

Lead me beside the still waters
Where all turmoil drifts away
Make me lay down in pastures green
Open my blind eyes this day

Chorus
And as I sing songs of thanksgiving
You breathe joy into all I’m living
You’ve taken my sins, all forgiving
My life in Yours Jesus, believing
I’m falling in love again

And I’m falling in love again
I feel Your arms around me
I hear Your still voice, so gentle
Lifting me so I can see

O Jesus, You didn’t have to
Hang on the cross that dark day
Die for me, take away my sin
But it was the only way

And forever, I’ll be thankful
That Jesus, You chose to stay
That Jesus, You chose to stay

TAKE OFF THAT CLOAK OF FEAR (Song Lyrics)

duck duck

Are you wearing a cloak of fear
The one that binds you to itself
Replace it with the cloak of peace
And feel the freedom for yourself

For God has not given to you
Fearful spirits of any kind
But in sweetest mercy, He gives
Spirits of power, love, sound mind

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

So stand on His word, don’t let go
Drink life offered, amazing grace
Lay on green pastures by still stream
Soon you’ll see the smile on His face

Cling to the Solid Rock so firm
Witness through the storms that will come
Waves of fear will try to destroy
And leave you feeling oh! so numb

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

Believe His promises always
He will never leave or forsake
He gave His all at Calvary
So you, His gifts of grace could take

So throw off that dark cloak of fear
Open wide your arms, lift them high
Be clothed in peace, not worldly peace
And on wings of peace you will fly

Bridge
No more burden, no more pain
No more feeling burden’s shame
Let His warming love embrace
Breathe in freedom’s perfect place
Just take off that cloak of fear
Throw away that cloak of fear

Chorus
Use the word of God
His infallible Sword
To cut yourself free
Throw it off
Throw it off
It doesn’t belong
To a child of God
To a child of God like thee
Like thee
To a child of God like thee

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

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

I dedicate this precious song to all who are trapped or feel like they are trapped in circumstances beyond their control. Particularly, surrounding the virus atm. I think of any areas of natural disaster, 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

WHEN LOVE OVERWHELMS (Song Lyrics)

Valentine’s Day Rose Love Background
Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

Knowing that He loves me
Knowing that He cares
Knowing that wherever He leads me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me
For me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

I hear Him calling my name
Sweet child
I love you

Bridge
When His love overwhelms me
And peace settles deep within
It’s like falling upon a bed of roses
Where healing fragrance silently infuses in

The softness of morning
The stillness of eve
Through every waking moment forming
Love entwined with each new dawning
Dawning
Love entwined with each new dawning

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

He’s calling my name again
Sweet child
I love you

Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does
And as hard as I try
I cannot describe
The depths of my Father’s love
Being cherished and adored by Love
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished in the arms of Love
Of Love
Cherished in the arms of Love

Lord, it’s me
Sweet child
Here I am
Ready to receive Your love
And fall deeper in love with You
So much deeper in love with You

THE SONG IN MY HEART (Song Lyrics)

Gladly I surrender
To all You’ve given me
And as You take my hand
Salvation comes to me

Your song, You poured inside
This worn out, weary heart
A heart which couldn’t sing
A heart, love-torn apart

Each note, placed silently
In hymns, and psalms, and praise
So quietly at first
I couldn’t discern Your ways

Warmth of love descended
Melting this frosty heart
And like a bird in flight
Sweet joy’s wings, did impart

Yes, this child knows it’s there
Somewhere, so deep within
Just waiting to break forth
For melody to sing

And as a baby bird
Releases her pure notes
Songs of her Lord’s healing
When a Child Sings, love floats
