LOVE (Song Lyrics)

nice flowers

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

You are love
It’s where my love is
I can only but love You
Because You first loved

You called me
And opened my ears
I heard You call me by name
Sweetness to my heart

You found me
In my brokenness
And as hands of love reached in
I was lifted free

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

You gave love
Cast all fear away
Breathed Your eternal life in
Died so I could live

This is love
Emptied out for me
The beauty of holiness
I’ll forever praise

Love, O love
Two hearts beat as one
This rose has found her garden
Crowned with thorns of love

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

TENDING MY FATHER’S SHEEP (Song Lyrics)

Shepherd Boy.jpg

Just a humble shepherd boy
Daily tending my father’s sheep
Roaming through the hills unseen
Eyes upon them, awake, asleep

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Searching for lush, green pastures
Waters flowing abundantly
And hanging leaves for shelter
Safe from winds that lash suddenly

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Watching for dangers and fear
Aware of their frailty, weakness
Needing me to lead them, till
The heavens draw back in darkness

Oh! Why did He chose me
And why not another
I’d strayed so far from home
Far from father, mother
But in His sweetest arms
Carried me to His side
Held me so tenderly
Whispered, here you’ll abide

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

ONE LOST LAMB (A Song About Love)

lamb looking into camera

Chorus
O Lamb of God
Lamb of Christ
One, He saves
One was lost

Lifted silently
No cry
Sweet Lamb and lamb
Prepared to die

Lord and Saviour
Strong Deliverer
Redeems, the
Wandering, lonesome one

A heart poured
Out, upon the Hilltop
Cleansing the way
For hopeless weariness

Chorus
O Lamb of God
Lamb of Christ
One, He saves
One was lost

Each piercing glance
Sheds love abroad
In receptive hearts
Of burdened souls

To the ends of the earth
No deviation
Gently leads home
Forgiven saints

Touching each and every
Head, He gifts with
Promises, and all that He
Abandoned, is lovingly restored

Chorus
O Lamb of God
Lamb of Christ
One, He saves
One was lost

And then He turns toward me
Our eyes stay locked, no key
The Lamb has found
That one lost lamb
And cradles me, lovingly
