THE SHEEP OF YOUR PASTURE (Song Lyrics)

sheep sheep face face

You draw us into the heart of love
From a life of darkness, void of love
We hear a gentle whisper, a call
Finding ourselves face to face, we fall

Fall into life, never before breathed
Our restless hearts are no longer grieved
Hope arises, salvation is birthed
Moving through Spirit from cursed to blessed

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

A moment in time, already planned
Something so wonderful, something grand
You spoke, a new creature came alive
And then joy sprung forth, joy to revive

A journey begins, a babe in Christ
We learn of a pure Lamb sacrificed
Each day brings us a revelation
As we read Your Word, jubilation

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

Then come storms and trials, we question
Where we dwell in Your resurrection
Digging deeper Your light shines upon
You then show us that we have been won

And because of Jesus, we are safe
To live as good wheat, no longer chaff
All has been placed lovingly inside
Wholeness, healing, forgiveness inside

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

BENEATH THE SILENT WAVES

DSCN0671

Beneath the silent waves
Of yonder distant hill
The wildness of the breeze
Cries listen, and be still

The echoes of new life
Fragrance softly falling
The melody of song
Reveal God, all knowing

Each breath breathes a heartbeat
An emptiness within
A breath captivated
Delivered from its sin

O Taste and see, the Lord
Is good, so many signs
And wonders, all around
Through darkness, He still shines

Beneath those silent waves
Can you hear Him calling
Through waves of circumstance
Trials bring you home, glowing

There is a River

bach creek river

There is a river of love and peace
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Sweet blessings you will know

There is a river of joy and hope
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Your symptoms, they will go

There is a river which runs forever
And as it flows it whispers your name
Oh! Please, come down to the water’s edge
Take a step forward and you’ll never be the same

STANDING BY THE SEASHORE (Song Lyrics)

child looking at the sea

Coming to a place where my heart beats, and is forever yours
I stand upon the shoreline, and listen to heaven’s applause
It’s taken me so long, the sand gently brushed all pain away
For me to finally hear Your voice, and say, I’m here to stay

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

Your sweet voice was always distant, and yet it was always there
Sometimes, even, O please forgive me, I thought You didn’t care
But now my eyes have been opened, to see what I couldn’t hear
That it’s with my heart I hear You, not with my physical ear

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

And Lord, now that I know the whole truth, the truth shall make me free
All who I am in Christ, all who I was created to be
You will show me, and as I gaze into Your beautiful eyes
I’m standing by the seashore, hearing Your voice instead of lies

You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

O Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

PLEASE STAY

PLEASE STAY image

You washed me white as snow
You took my stains away
Oh Lord, I love You so
Please stay

You held me as I wept
My pain and grief You bore
My heart cried out to You
Please stay

I could not see for tears
All that You’d done for me
Your life You sacrificed
Please stay

Please help me see the truth
Please help my unbelief
Please heal my broken heart
Please stay

(Insert your name here), open your eyes
I spoke these words for you
It is finished, and all that I’ve done
Has given you the victory
In Me, you’ve already won
And I won’t leave you
I won’t ever forget you
Our Father, He sent Me for you
And We’ve loved you ere the world begun
Over your life, Our love. We’ve sung

So now I say to you
Please stay
Please stay
I’ve healed your heart
Poured My love in
I’ve sealed your life
Cleansed you from sin
Please stay
Please stay

I’M WAITING BY THE POOL OF HEALING (Song Lyrics)

Dedicated to all who need a touch of pure love and healing from the only One who can truly heal. The Healer Himself. Our heavenly Father, in the beautiful name of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit …

blue water drops

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

So many years I’ve waited
Blindly trying many paths
Always hoping that it would be my turn
But alas, others had the joys and laughs

Day after day after day
Month after month after year
Wallowing in much concealed self-pity
Kept in bondage by hidden lies and fear

Feeling disheartened and sad
Wondering how to go on
Able to read of His grace and mercy
But still unable to sing my heart’s song

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

But then one day the light shone
Shone though it never had dimmed
The light was always upon His sweet Word
And now my heart saw what my eyes had skimmed

I went to the healing pool
Again nothing had it changed
But there for the first time I met Jesus
Who’d come searching for me where I now laid

And as He said to this child
Child, do you want to be well
I answered and said, I’m listening dear Lord
Only You can lift from this place I fell

My heart listened
My eyes glistened
My Saviour lent down in love
I’m here for you now
And I’ve always been
I’ve just waited for you to look above

Rise, take up your bed and walk
And in His strength I could do
Something that years had prevented me from
Rising up, going forth into things new

Chorus
Oh! I waited by the pool of healing
Waited for someone to lift me in
Watched others, they went before me
They were healed and I no longer wait; ’cause
In my greatest need as the tears fell
Jesus healed me before I went in

YOU CHOSE ME

hands with hearts

I didn’t think I was good enough
Others had more worth
In my eyes I was second-class
But then You chose me

My ransom price You paid was priceless
I cannot fathom
Why would You want me, love me so
Yet You still chose me

I didn’t wear robes of righteousness
My face, void of joy
But You wrapped me in forgiveness
In love, You chose me

Jesus, in obedience You went
To the ready cross
Took my hand so I could witness
Why You did choose me

And together along Passion Road
At last I felt safe
But You were bowed with my burdens
Because You chose me

Squeezing my hand in love, I looked up
I couldn’t bear it
‘You don’t have to bear it, My child’
By faith you chose Me

To the cross, through the pain, through the night
The night-like hours, yes
I watched You mercifully die
Tears rolled, You chose me

You bore all my sins, past, future, now
To the cross, they nailed
But praise God, You defeated death
So glad I chose You

Jesus, You’re alive, yes, You’re alive
And now, so am I
All because You enabled me
That day to choose You

I no longer bear those sins of mine
Now they’re washed away
In rivers of unending grace
We chose each other

I didn’t think I was good enough
Others had more worth
In my eyes I was second-class
They’re lies, not the truth
