THIS SAND WILL NEVER HOLD ME UP (Song Lyrics)

Beach 2

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

This sand will never hold me up
As I walk, and look for treasures
Seeking for someone, anything
Wasting time on empty leisures

It looks so vast, so deep, so firm
And sometimes, the tide makes it so
But in comes intense furnace heat
And burns where the tears of hope flow

It is soon too soft to walk on
This once appealing field of gold
Dreams sink, and there’s no-one around
To catch me, strengthen me, and hold

But I trusted in all I saw
I said, I trusted in all things
Things laid before desperate eyes
Now I see, the bondage it brings

I’d been trying to build this wall
Each day, upon my lonely heart
Piece upon piece of worthlessness
Just leaving me falling apart

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

I’d place each begging so called gift
Those that only money can buy
Stand back, feel myself slowly sink
Once again feel the pain, and sigh

Well this kept going on and on
Three steps forward, three steps backward
Till a beautiful stranger, He
Showed me love to build me upward

This sand will never hold me up
Only love can mend brokenness
I may be brought down in pieces
But He will complete to wholeness

He will perfect me in His time
No more to do this on my own
Dazzling jewels He soon will place
Strong foundation, no longer blown

Who is this beautiful stranger
Appearing at my hour of need
’Tis Jesus, my Lord and Saviour
Took my hand and with His, did lead

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

Only the One who made the earth
Spoke, and the heavens did sparkle
Can embroider each wall of life
Give solid ground on Holy Hill

MY JESUS (Song Lyrics)

the first communion holidays

My Jesus, You were wounded
That one day we might be healed
In total obedience
On the cross, our was life sealed

All was finished, when You cried
We must appropriate it
None else can do it for us
Don’t on the sideline fence sit

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, You bled and died
A tortured moment in time
You gave Your beautiful life
Cut down whilst in Your sweet prime

And close tears, they did mingle
With hearts broken beyond pain
Hearts that would one day be new
My heart was there in death’s stain

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, because of love
By Your stripes, bought us wholeness
Took our sins, and laid them bare
In death You breathed forgiveness

Who can comprehend, the pure Sacrifice once laid out before us?
Who can partake of this living gift, unless the Father draws us?

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

In the Midst of It All – When Trials Threaten to Overwhelm

Complete

In the midst of it all
Through fiery trials and more
I could not go alone
Your soft, scarred hand
Leads me gently home to shore

In the midst of it all
You are there with me
I need not ask for deliverance
But only to feel and know
That my Saviour I might see

In the midst of it all
As painful as it may be
Oh! Lord remember me
Your Son has been before
I bow on bended knee

In the midst of it all
I will not completely fall
He walks beside me still
Whispers only “Be still”
Jesus my All-in-All

I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

colorful roses bouquest vector

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

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.

A Wound Too Deep

william wall painting oil on canvas

For many a day
Life is cushioned
Soft green grass
We are disillusioned

Travelling along
No hardships or sadness
We walk towards
Our dreams more or less

And then the road hardens
Slight problems appear
The road becomes rocky
And in comes the fear

What should have been gladness
And fun we are told
Suddenly we stumble
Our footsteps lose hold

Cracks and crevices
Dangerous terrain
We cannot move forward
Without any pain

The road is too dangerous
The gap is too wide
How will we reach our goal
Out of reach – the other side

The wound is too deep
We need help to go on
And then our dear Saviour
Sheds His blood, God’s Son

His blood fills the deepness
Heals the wound from within
And now we continue
Praise the Lord
To heavenly Canaan

For once again the road is soft
He holds our hand, leads the way
Brings us home
And on His heart
We now lay

It’s Raining His Tears

valentine8217s day water drops hearts vector

It’s raining
I hear His small, still voice
I’m crying for my nations
I’m crying, it’s My choice

I’m crying, you won’t listen
I’m crying, you’ve left My side
I’m crying, no one seems to care
Look, My arms are open wide

These tears are shed for many
The lost, the sick, those in pain
The rain, it is getting heavier
Don’t let My love, My love, wane

The rainbow has been hidden
These tears, I cry for you
I’m crying to cleanse all who are dying
I’m crying, let Me wash you anew

The falling drops, they lessen
But My tears will continue to fall
Fall until you grasp these words
Don’t hide your heart behind fear’s wall

Let these tears, let them take away
All that is holding you back
May they bring fresh love, peace and sweet joy
And in Me, fulfill all you lack

THIS IS YOUR BREAKTHROUGH CALLING (A Song of Deliverance)

This is Your Breakthrough Calling

There was a time, a long time
When you’d almost given up
The trials were overwhelming
As you drank of affliction’s cup
But I was there all along
And I’m forever with you now
And throughout it all
Through many tears, much pain
Heaven still was blessed
With love, praise and no disdain

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

This answered prayer is for all
Who have been struggling so
When prayers seem like they’re silenced
When release, it just doesn’t show
Maybe as you’re reading this
And My Word is laid before you
Take heart My dear one
‘Cause help is on its way
Believe, believe and trust
Breakthrough will break through this day

Bridge
I wanted you to break through
Break through, break through, push through
And with My help, you were never alone
Together, rejoice, you’re through

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

You’re through, you’re through
And My Name is glorified
You’re through, My child, you’re through
My love now seen and glorified

SNOW GLOBE HEART (Song Lyrics)

It’s been a while since I wrote any song lyrics … I hope you enjoy these!

realistic christmas snow globe with christmas gift in it vector

It’s Christmas time around the world
The snow is gently falling
Homes ring out, much jubilation
Young and old in harmony

And as the hour is counting down
Slowly eyes, they find their sleep
Trying hard to stay wide awake
Midst final preparation

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

But within the frosty shadows
A heart refuses to shine
Not even in the excitement
Of the night, can warmth, it smile

’Cause a little child, a child’s heart
Grown one, lost in memory
Doesn’t matter how old the years
When hearts are cold, love is gone

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

So be embraced by heaven’s Gift
Though found in times of shaking
Surround your life, your loved ones too
Forever all season’s hope

Bridge
May love find all that is lost
May joy receive Her King
May peace line each footstep
Throughout earth, may all hearts sing

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape
