BROKEN HEART, STOP RUNNING (Song Lyrics)

DSCN0083

From the beginning we have all been loved
But somewhere along the way
We’ve listened to distant lies echoing
Lies which have led us astray

Why is it so hard to believe the truth
Why is it so hard to say
I believe in You, oh Lord and Saviour
When we hear Your voice today

Chorus
Oh broken heart stop running
Running, going nowhere
Distance may separate the man
But distance always leads somewhere
You may think you are safe
You may think you are free
But eventually you’ll be found out
Hiding; not hidden, never free

Every heart that has ever been broken
Broken, and in dark despair
Has a hidden and silent melody
Waiting to longingly share

Please leave the ninety-nine oh Lord, in love
Come find the wandering one
Lay him, lay her, upon Your strong shoulders
Close to the heart of God’s Son

Chorus
Oh broken heart stop running
Running, going nowhere
Distance may separate the man
But distance always leads somewhere
You may think you are safe
You may think you are free
But eventually you’ll be found out
Hiding; not hidden, never free

REFRESH ME (Song Lyrics … To Be Sung Slowly/Prayer/Poem)

016 (2)

Refresh me
Refresh me
Body, soul and spirit
Body, soul and spirit

Let Your healing flow
Let Your healing flow

Holy Spirit come
Jesus, You are Lord
Father, You are Lord

Let Your healing flow
Let Your healing flow

Refresh me
Refresh me
Body, soul and spirit
Body, soul and spirit

Repeat

From Whence He Came

From Whence He Came (2)

Always remember the hay in the stable
And always remember that He is most able
No adorned room, no billowing softness
Just His Father’s dear love, His Father’s greatness

No private schooling, no Wedgwood plating
No iced dainties, not yet crowned as King
Had to go yonder for people to listen
Only a few following of His own Kinsmen

Humble, no proudness; but with much jubilation
Sharing the secrets of God’s own salvation
Oh! How it pained Him, the scoffers, His own
Would not listen or do what was shown

But He lives, is alive
And all heaven proclaims
That Jesus is Lord
And remains to this day
Jesus is Lord
Yes Jesus is Lord
And all will acknowledge
With shame or with joy
