HE WALKS WITH ME (Song Lyrics)

He Walks With Me (A Song)

When the beach looms empty
When the sands are torn
Broken with lost promises
Tears before the morn

Scattered shells in pieces
The rain beats against my heart
Driftwood lines the edges
Of this story, about to start

I step in time with His footsteps
The seagulls echo my cry
The sand crabs run for cover
They know the Creator is nigh

Chorus
And I walk in the shallows with my Saviour
I walk where the waters are deep
It doesn’t matter the height of the tide
Just as long as He walks with me

We share words of love and listen
To each other’s plea to be heard
He tells of His love enduring
I tell of my love for His word

And as we walk hand in hand, now in silence
He gently picks up a handful of sand
Lets it flow in gracious stages
Like time standing still by His hand

We walk and walk and it grows dark
The sun splashes a rainbow high
Reflections of a perfect day
And I no longer need to question why

Chorus
And I walk in the shallows with my Saviour
I walk where the waters are deep
It doesn’t matter the height of the tide
Just as long as He walks with me

Why does He care for me so sweetly
When there are so many precious souls
He turns, smiles and then He’s gone
And across the ocean His Spirit rolls

I cannot explain the love that He’s left
So very deep inside of me
He’s filled my heart with thankfulness
And on this beach walk I found the Key

And this Key has unlocked my once closed heart
And sprayed it with the ocean’s fragrance
Covered it with the shells of love
Releasing me to praise and joyfully dance

Chorus
Yes, I’ve walked in the shallows with my Saviour
I’ve walked where the waters were deep
It didn’t matter the height of the tide
‘Cause my Saviour, He walked with me

And it won’t ever matter the height of the tide
‘Cause my Saviour always walks with me
Yes, my Saviour … He always walks with me

WHEN LOVE BREAKS THROUGH (Song Lyrics)

IMG_8616

When love breaks through, and mends a broken heart
It finds its home awaiting, prepared for a brand new start

Love and truth, they are settled
Firmly planted in your mind
But there’s a wall between them
Your mind, and the beats of life

And every day as you read
His beautiful living Word
Knowledge grows; but slowly fades
All gained is lost in the fog

Chorus
When love wins, and breaks right through
Love hearts crush and pierce the blue
Filling hidden recesses
Filling, and restoring you

There’s love, there’s peace, and there’s joy
Just bursting to be released
But something keeps the door closed
To heavenly gifts, so free

Trials of tears, and trials of woe
Bitterness, unforgiveness
Seek His Kingdom first, forgive
And love, it will then break through

Chorus
When love wins, and breaks right through
Love hearts crush and pierce the blue
Filling hidden recesses
Filling, and restoring you

Abundant love will pour forth
And tear that hard wall right down
Love will beat triumphantly
And mend all the broken pain

When love breaks through and mends a broken heart
It finds its home awaiting, prepared for a brand new start

When love breaks through

YOU WASH ME WHITER THAN THE WHITEST SNOW (Song Lyrics)

bird winter snow

You wash me whiter than the whitest snow
You lift me higher than the clouds can go
You mend my broken heart with love aglow
And this is when, my thankful tears, they flow

Washing me whiter, washing me whiter
I fall at Your feet, and then You reach down
With eyes full of tenderness, You tell me
I’m all Yours, placing upon me Your crown

Washing me whiter, washing me whiter
So now I’m clean, Your righteousness I wear
My filthy rags have been nailed to the cross
I live as Your child, so wanted, so fair

My heart can now sing in cleansed, purest tones
’Cause Jesus has opened the way back home
And access forever to our Father
I’m seen and purchased, through the spotless Lamb

You wash me whiter than the whitest snow
You lift me higher than the clouds can go
You mend my broken heart with love aglow
And this is when, my thankful tears, they flow

Isaiah 1:16-18(KJV)

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

I HAVE TO BELIEVE I AM WHO I AM IN I AM (Song Lyrics)

cartoon girl playing with balloon in landscape in background showing city vector illustration

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Because in Him, I live and move and have my being
So I am all that He says I am, and that’s the truth
Lord, in Your mercy, give me eyes opened, all seeing

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
His Word says I’m His child, beautifully created
Healed, worthy and cleansed, safe, forgiven and bathed in love
Lord, I’m so sorry I took so much time and waited

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
No more condemnation, no more wandering alone
You’ve given me rest, peace, that the world can’t comprehend
Lord, You have turned my heart to flesh, where once there was stone

I have to believe I am who I am in I AM
Made every whit whole, and Your Name do I magnify
Justified, glorified, I now have the mind of Christ
Lord, You found me, I was lost, Your word, did satisfy

Yes, in Christ, I am no longer hurting
In Christ, at last I am finally me
’Cause in Christ I am no longer searching
For eternal love that can set me free

IT’S A JOYFUL DAY (Song Lyrics)

cartoon love birds pattern 04 vector

The birds sing heaven’s melody
The crisp air, it beckons praise
Nature’s cups, they open slowly
Ready to reflect His gaze

Listen to the love they’re singing
Every note holds mystery
History from times past till now
Your name’s there in His story

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Take each song and make it your own
Hear the Lord gently calling
You’ve been given beautiful life
Raised up when you were falling

Yes, it can be so difficult
When everything seems just lost
Are you battling beyond belief
It took all, His death it cost

Bridge
O joyful day, O joyful day
Though the skies may be stormy and dark and grey
O joyful day, O joyful day
Receive Jesus in your heart and there He’ll stay

No, I haven’t experienced
Hurt and pain that some go through
Please come to the Father above
There’s peace through His Son, it’s true

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Yes, He’s in love with you

HAVING DONE ALL, I STAND (Song Lyrics)

the whole armor of god

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

To be the best I can be, the best I can
Only in Christ, can this manifest
I’ve tried so hard; but that’s not what You desire
You say be still, and in You, come rest

But Lord, I’m here, don’t I have to do something
Waves are alashing, I need help now
I have on my helmet, breastplate, and sandals
Belt, sword and shield, Your word shows me how

How to pray, and pray, and pray in the Spirit
Then to stand, and trust all unto You
Help me to stand firm, love embraced, not fear it
Fear definitely not sent from You

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

You have not given me the spirit of fear
But of power, love and a sound mind
And my heart always beats next to Yours, so dear
Kept forever safe, with mercies kind

Time does not keep you from love across the miles
Lord, please show me, show me how to stand
How does it look to stand midst the fiery trials
I can do it, if You take my hand

Bridge
I stand because You ask me to
I stand because I’m free
Free to follow Jesus
I stand because I’m me

Chorus
Having done all, I stand
Upon the solid Rock, not man
I cannot do anymore, ‘tis Your command
To be the best I can be, the best I can

silhouette woman tree

Even more beautiful … Please be blessed as I have been.

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

For A Dear One Hurting (Poem and/or Song Lyrics)

For a Dear One Hurting
There is someone who loves you
Yes someone that I know
Who loves and protects you
Wherever you may go

Because somebody is praying
Who loves you so dearly
Please trust even though
Each day your heart is teary

Life is like a precious flower
Where joy is hidden when it’s dark
For deep within the petals
Beauty lies dormant when it’s dark

Oh! Allow the warming of the Son
To open up your heart
And like that flower closed so tightly
Unfold so beautifully, each part

For when the warmth of the Saviour
Enters very deep within, be healed
Revealed is softness, pureness, completeness
And the outside forms the shield

Yes the blemishes of life
Still exist to our unopened eye
But when opened to the glorious Light
Are hidden from on high

Because our Saviour
All He sees, from heavenly places above
Is perfection and unparallel beauty
In the heart filled with Jesus’ love

So take your thoughts, your tears, your plans
From off what is happening to you
And trust the Lord who knows all
To reveal what He has planned for you

THE STORY OF LOVE (A Song of Adoration)

The Story of Love

Love unlocked pretends to smile
And all the world, it passes by
People never see the pain
Etched deep within each silent sigh

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

When love, it rises and breaks free
Captures the moments of past history
It shares joyful pain and misery
And draws Him closer, closer to me

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

That’s when shadows of the rainbow hide
A heart intent on keeping love inside
But love breaks free, into arms open wide
And shines eternal glory on a heavenly Bride

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

THE WINTERTIME OF LOVE (A Song of Longing and Hope)

The Wintertime of Love

Wintertime within my heart
A time of reflection, I know
Cold prevails sad memories
And footprints melt in the fallen snow

Chorus
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, no longer sin-driven
Hidden in the wintertime of love
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, awaiting heaven
Released through the seasons of His love

I see tears frozen from yesteryear
I feel the pain, it’s unrelieved
Joy trapped and crying for release
Wishing springtime to be forever freed

Chorus
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, no longer sin-driven
Hidden in the wintertime of love
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, awaiting heaven
Released through the seasons of His love

But there’s sunshine and sweet flowers blooming
In this life of mirrored dreams above
’Cause I’m hidden in the heart of my Saviour
I’m hidden in His heart of love

Chorus
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, no longer sin-driven
Hidden in the wintertime of love
Hidden, forgiven
Hidden, awaiting heaven
Released through the seasons of His love
