HE MELTED MY HEART (A Song of Sweet Deliverance)

HE MELTED MY HEART

Once the sharp pain of hopelessness
And a path so trodden with tears
Shadowed the darkness surrounding me
And captured the coldness of fears

Chorus
O set me midst the treasures
Of my dear, dear Saviour’s crown
May He melt my heart
Tear me apart
Lift me high
So all I will do is bow down
So all I will do is bow down

Lord flood Your presence over me
Unveil the light of heaven’s glow
Why has life’s radiance disappeared
And left a colourless rainbow

Chorus
O set me midst the treasures
Of my dear, dear Saviour’s crown
May He melt my heart
Tear me apart
Lift me high
So all I will do is bow down
So all I will do is bow down

And then when I thought it could not get worse
Friends had deserted, my heart so faint
He spoke and the cloud no longer held me still
Now I’m that jewel without a taint

O He melted my heart, melted my heart
And found the treasure within
He melted my heart
Melted my heart
And now this life is fit for my King

Chorus
Yes I’m now set amidst the treasures
Of my dear, dear Saviour’s crown
He melted my heart
Tore me apart
Lifted me high
And all I can do now is bow down
And all I can do now is bow down

Songs in the Night

Songs in the Night

S …  Stillness is forever moving
O … On the lonely mountaintop

N … Never should our hearts be troubled
G … Gone and banished our fears are stopped

S …  Sing the song, joy fill our voice, sing, sing Oh! sing

I …  Into darkness, He filters His light
N … Near to the Father, with Him in His night

T  … To all the brave children, struggling through
H … Hills surround deep valleys, just passing through
E …  Eyes and ears listen and read of Jesus. Truth

N … Not the deepest darkness will cause us to err
I …  If we stay instep with the Saviour, follow and care

G … God sends the darkness as a cover for His light
H … How can we ever forget what He’s done, remember

T … The joy He has given – given ‘Songs in the Night’

Second Song … NOTHING IS TOO DEEP FOR JESUS

Nothing is Too Deep for JesusNo hole in the heart is too big
Too big for Jesus to fill
He never will leave you alone
Because He always
Will find you
Love you
Take you into His loving arms
Restore you … Bind you
And all the storms of your life
He will still

Chorus
So go on, empty all of your troubles
Empty them one by one
Cast all your cares upon Him
Jesus
God’s perfect Son

No hole in the heart is too big
Too big for Jesus to fill
His heart is never empty
His heart will always give
Love never ending
Wonders oh! so great
Just look into His beautiful eyes
See His pain, our pain
He cares
And always will

Chorus
So go on, empty all of your troubles
Empty them one by one
Cast all your cares upon Him
Jesus
God’s perfect Son

Fall into the heart of Jesus
Fall into His waiting heart
Fall into the heart of Jesus
His love to you He’ll impart
Fill you with
All that’s been missing
Fill all the empty tears
Fill you with love unimaginable
Release you from all of your fears

Chorus
So go on, empty all of your troubles
Empty them one by one
Cast all your cares upon Him
Jesus
God’s perfect Son

Tears Through the Years

Tears Through the YearsWhen the pain is overwhelming

When the pain is fresh

Tears Through the Years (3)Scarce can see the time

Scarce can feel emotion

Tears Through the Years (2)Pain it blocks the light of day

Pain it blocks true living

Tears Through the Years (4)But as time it passes

The light will cleanse

Life will seem clearer

You’ll see through the tears

See through the tears

See through the tears

And see less of your fears

 

‘A Wounding Question’ in “Fragrance from the Spring”

A Wounding Question

Cascading waterfalls of tears in me dwell
And each little tear, I know very well
The tear it holds such pain or delight
And falling they frostily mist my eyesight

Each little tear is a cleanse made in Heaven
And pain, loss and grieving are lovingly given
For each wondrous tear in His bottle is caught
And He always sends joy after tears have been sought

Who else but the Lord knows all of our fears
All of our laughter and all of our tears
Nothing about us is ever unknown
He sends healing tears so new life will be sown

But although He hears us, directs us, leads us
Takes our hand and through turmoil or smiles shields us
Who throughout this glorious creation of His
Ever thinks …… WHO  CATCHES  THE  TEARS  THAT  HE  SHEDS?
