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

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

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

2 Timothy 1:7
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, torn love 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

IN THE STABLE OF MY HEART (Song Lyrics)

christmas baby boy

Oh Jesus
You’ve found a place
In the stable of my heart
You came in the darkness
And I, I didn’t turn You away

Oh Jesus
Sweet Babe of God
You lay Your life out for mine
Oh how I love You Lord
I lift my hands, praise Your holy name

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

Oh Jesus
You’ve filled this heart
This cold, and this emptiness
Flooded it with heaven
And traded it for love, peace and joy

Oh Jesus
I hope and pray
That many will come to You
Be saved, and healed today
And all darkness will be washed away

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

My Father
You sent sweet hope
Into the world’s hopelessness
Oh may my heart reveal
My love, and eternal thankfulness

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

MY HEAD, O LORD, YOU LIFT (Song Lyrics Based on Psalm 3)

woman on coronado beach

Chorus
My head, O Lord, You lift
High above every trial
My head, O Lord, You lift
Each day, You make me smile
For You are my Deliverer
My Fortress, my All-in-all
O Lord, You lift my head up
My hopeless thoughts, restore
And now like the mighty eagle
In Your name I can soar
In Your name I will soar

Lord, there are so many
So many that trouble me
They rise, they are increased
Against every part of me

Many say of my soul
Your God is not there for you
You have no-one to help
Let’s dwell a moment or two

But You, Lord, are my shield
My glory, my awesome Lord
You lift my head above
You defend me with Your sword

I cried in my despair
And I lifted up my voice
You heard me from afar
From Your holy hill. Rejoice

Chorus
My head, O Lord, You lift
High above every trial
My head, O Lord, You lift
Each day, You make me smile
For You are my Deliverer
My Fortress, my All-in-all
O Lord, You lift my head up
My hopeless thoughts, restore
And now like the mighty eagle
In Your name I can soar
In Your name I will soar

I laid down, and I slept
I awoke when You called me
A day with mercies new
Thank you for sustaining me

I will not be afraid
Of ten thousands of people
They’ve set themselves around
About; but I’ll stay peaceful

Arise O Lord, my God
You’ve smitten my enemies
Upon their cheekbones, and
Broken teeth, which my life, frees

My salvation is Yours
And Your blessing sits sweetly
Upon Your people Lord
My God, my love, completely

Chorus
My head, O Lord, You lift
High above every trial
My head, O Lord, You lift
Each day, You make me smile
For You are my Deliverer
My Fortress, my All-in-all
O Lord, You lift my head up
My hopeless thoughts, restore
And now like the mighty eagle
In Your name I can soar
In Your name I will soar

DOWN BY THE WATER’S EDGE (Song Lyrics)

footprints in the sand

Sometimes Lord, I just don’t know what to say
Words are lost, hidden deep in this broken heart
So I’ll sing them within, may the melody rejoice
Come oh Lord, may joy’s lyrics be captured and used
Take my hand, and we’ll stroll where the waves depart

Down by the water’s edge, where the shore melds
The sea, and the sand disappear underfoot
Open my ears so I may hear Your wonderful truths
Open my eyes that I might see Your loving face
And footprints where my feet, I must by faith, put

Waves gently lap across our journey’s path
Washing and purging all that’s dark, my trial
The light of Your life draws me closer, darkness turns grey
I say I need help every day, that I need You
My prayer is lost in the seafoam of Your smile

I’m so blessed to know You, be known of You
What a beautiful moment etched in my mind
Sweet memories, sown in love, find their way to safety
Time passes slowly, the seagulls join in chorus
And with joy in Your word, I’m now aligned

YOUR TENDER LOVE (Song Lyrics)

i039m hiding

I thank you Father that You are drawing me closer
Closer with every breath that I take
Father, You are my hiding place
Without You, this journey, I can’t make

I feel Your awesome presence
Bearing down on me
I feel Your tender love
Wrapping gently over me

You whisper, ’All will be well’
Even now though you
Cannot see, just trust Me
And rest, as I make you new

Your gentle touch in my trials
Leads to all You’ve shown
Releases all the pain
Helps me know I’m not alone

I thank you Father that You are drawing me closer
Closer with every breath that I take
Father, You are my hiding place
Without You, this journey, I can’t make

I see old bondage broken
And grief gone at last
Your light pierces darkness
Those arrows that have stuck fast

The grey clouds hurry away
As Your Word breaks through
I’ve prayed, and prayed, and prayed
I’ve done all I need to do

The wait at times, oh! so long
Lord, it took so long
I nearly gave up; but
My heart now hears Your sweet song

I thank you Father that You are drawing me closer
Closer, closer, closer
Closer with every breath that I take
Every breath, yes every breath that I take
Father, You are my hiding place
I wouldn’t be in any other place
Without You, this journey, I could never make
I can only make it with You
With You
I can only make it with You
