HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE (A Song for Those Who Have Lost Their Way)

Of all that the Lord has given me to place before you, this has to be one of my favourites. I pray that it will bless you sweetly and speak to the very depths of your heart. He is our Shepherd. We are the sheep of His pasture and He loves us more than we can ever know.

To those who don’t know Him, please don’t wait another day to receive His gift of salvation and eternal life. To those who are wandering, seeking fulfillment, peace and happiness along your own path, don’t wait another day to hearken unto His call. Come unto Him. Now. He’s calling your name. Cry out, audibly or silently from a broken heart and He will answer. There is nothing to be afraid of. Let go. Let God. Your life will never be the same.

new born lamb

HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Who’s lost its lonesome way
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Went out in the world to play

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

My heart is beating fast Lord
There’s danger all around
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Bleating desperately to be found

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

Strayed once too often, now all alone
In fields, uncertain and oh! so cold
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Forgive me and bring me into Your fold

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

I see You now Lord, Your arms are open wide
And tenderly You lift me
This little lamb’s now by Your side
I’m just a little lamb Lord
A little lamb, now with a peaceful heart
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Now safe knowing we’ll never be apart

Chorus
Oh! I stand before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
You’ve hidden me in Your arms Lord
I’m hidden in the pasture of Your love

THE BEAUTIFUL GATE (Song Lyrics)

Rose
To the right, to the left
To the left, to the right
Whichever way you turn
Freedom is out of sight

Are you looking for love
Everywhere where there’s none
Searching for happiness
Where they offer fake fun?

Chorus
Look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
It’s covered in roses
And blooms in delight
’Cause the one holding onto
Thorns of loss, pain and tears
Can be washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood

It’s time to stop running
It’s time to know the truth
It’s time to let go and
Be filled with strength and youth

Don’t let your eyes be caught
With lures of fleeting charm
That promise nothing but
Empty hopes bringing harm

Chorus
Look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
It’s covered in roses
And blooms in delight
’Cause the one holding onto
Thorns of loss, pain and tears
Can be washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood

Did you look straight ahead
To the beautiful gate
Did you see the roses
Blooming in delight
Have you let go of those
Hindering thorns
Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

Let the fragrance of heaven’s Rose
Wash right over you
Stand upon that beautiful gate
And find yourself anew
Only He can bring you through
Through and so complete
Through in perfect wholeness
To stand at the Redeemer’s feet

Tell me
Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

Have you been washed and redeemed
By His precious, sweet blood?

The Story of Tic Toc the Clock and the Part Who Wanted to Live in the Past – or The Helping Hand (Another Poem for the Children)

cartoon-alarm-clock

Tic toc, tickety toc

Hands are going backwards

Forward two, back three

Tic Toc clock sighs as time spins forwards

 

“Big Hand to Little Hand.”  I said, “Big Hand to Little Hand”

You’re moving the wrong way

“I know, I know; but I’m having so much fun

And want to move time back to yesterday

 

Yesterday my hand was stronger

And nothing was an effort

Yesterday the sun shone brighter

And I could see which way to go

Yesterday I was so much younger

And time it moved much slower

 

Today my hand needs a hand to hold

And guide me round and round

Today the sun seems somewhat dimmer

And it’s hard to find my way

Today I’m older, the rhythm of time feels lost

And I can’t keep up with the hour”

 

Then Big Hand replied as he wiped tears from Little Hand’s eyes

“But your hand is in my hand so don’t worry, I’ll lead the way!

Time will march on … the sun’s here to stay

And together we’ll keep time moving forward
