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

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

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

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
