HEAR THE BABE (Christmas Song Lyrics)

christmas nativity scene

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, from praises of angelic shout

As Mary sings her lullaby, creation watches on
Born in lowly manger, majesty in one so young

Watching tenderly over Him, she wipes away the tear
A tear reflecting hope, reflection of brightest star

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, from praises of angelic shout

My dearest son, I love you so, many will follow you
But many won’t believe, that truth will lead them through

The bed upon which you do lay, will bring them to their knees
From ages to ages, each life will one day see

You cannot express your love yet; yet love is not hidden
Waiting for you Jesus, praise God, eyes have beholden

Rest up, sweet one, take your slumber, the time will surely come
When all humanity, will go, or with you, be one

Hear the babe, triumphant cry
As Mary sings her lullaby
Echoing words that to shepherds, rang out
‘Peace on Earth’, from praises of angelic shout

Joy Abundant

Joy Abundant
Oh! Fill us with Your joy abundant
Sing to us that heavenly song
And when the morning reigns triumphant
You’ll be with us ’fore too long

Oh! Fill us with Your power of might
Reveal to us things not seen nor heard
And when the evening dawns, a new Light
Majestic is Your glorious Word

Our sin, dearest Lord, You have lovingly taken
Nailed it to that barren tree
Wondrous God, You have not forsaken
Eternally sheltering, we bow on bended knee

 

ADORNED IN LACE (Song Lyrics)

white fern

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

Once we were burdened by darkness
Clothed only in self-righteousness
We came to You, and You saved us
Exchanged our rags for robes anew

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

You took our hopeless, broken heart
And filled it to overflowing
Your love broke through, captivated
Abundant, cleansing, softened too

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

At first, the flow, it did trickle
Too much, too soon, too much would be
Father, You know us inside out
Patient for our salvation day

Chorus
Loved beyond all measure
Accepted now, forever
Comforted in His healing arms
Empowered like none other

Adorned in lace, so beautiful
Awaiting our Master’s sweet voice
Clothed in Your royal righteousness
Hope in eternity’s wedding

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

The Bridal Song

wedding bouquet hd picture

I loved you ere the world began
Your heart, searching, it beat in Mine
Distant desire, you came to Me
My bride, arrayed in linen, fine

And words were whispered longingly
And your cry mingled with sweet tears
My ears, you opened with your love
Lost, now gone, the abandoned fears

Chorus
Infused with endless love
Fragranced, and arms embraced
This love is heaven-sent
I’m yours, you’re Mine, we’re His

With each passing moment
With each breath that you breathe
I’ve always known, seen you
Wanting you to believe

The days drew us closer
Time held us far apart
Moments I created
Perfect, they filled your heart

Chorus
Infused with endless love
Fragranced, and arms embraced
This love is heaven-sent
I’m yours, you’re Mine, we’re His

Soon we’ll be together
Now, and eternally
Two hearts will be safe, bound
Captivated, set free

And joy, songs abundant
Ring out forevermore
The wedding supper’s here
Sealed with a kiss adore

Chorus
Infused with endless love
Fragranced, and arms embraced
This love is heaven-sent
I’m yours, you’re Mine, we’re His

And words were whispered longingly
And your cry mingled with sweet tears
My ears, you opened with your love
Lost, now gone, the abandoned fears

I loved you ere the world began
Your heart, searching, it beat in Mine
Distant desire, you came to Me
My bride, arrayed in linen, fine

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

THE STORY OF LOVE (A Song of Adoration)

The Story of Love

Love unlocked pretends to smile
And all the world, it passes by
People never see the pain
Etched deep within each silent sigh

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

When love, it rises and breaks free
Captures the moments of past history
It shares joyful pain and misery
And draws Him closer, closer to me

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

That’s when shadows of the rainbow hide
A heart intent on keeping love inside
But love breaks free, into arms open wide
And shines eternal glory on a heavenly Bride

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

A Chorus of Heaven’s Love

Star Flower

Can you see the bars ‘cross heaven
Where the starry notes are laid
Each little sound, so reminiscent
Creation’s song which He first made

Flickering starlights, melodies pure
Reach eyes forth and discover His Word
Only in the darkest hour
Chorus seen, sight unheard

Some of us … in the deepest night
Some … in the light of day
Only those who pass through the grey, will
Forever see the love of His way

Rose Petal Friends

Rose Petal Friends

Friends are like petals upon a rose.

Some are distant from your heart. You see them rarely. You have little communication. Still, you are connected.

Some lean towards you. You catch up now and then. You communicate a little. Just like old times.

Others are closer to your heart. You see them often. You can tell them most things. You have fond memories.

And then there are those who are so very close to your heart that you feel you couldn’t live without them. You see them always. You can tell them anything and you do. You feel safe in their presence. You know when they are hurting.

Friends are like petals upon a rose – they form precious layers. They support you. They are a part of you.

And the fragrance from your life is spread evenly across those friendships. Just the right amount.

Like the rose, not every petal is always perfect, something you must remember; but together they form layer, upon layer, upon layer of beautiful completeness.
