MY JESUS (Song Lyrics)

the first communion holidays

My Jesus, You were wounded
That one day we might be healed
In total obedience
On the cross, our was life sealed

All was finished, when You cried
We must appropriate it
None else can do it for us
Don’t on the sideline fence sit

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, You bled and died
A tortured moment in time
You gave Your beautiful life
Cut down whilst in Your sweet prime

And close tears, they did mingle
With hearts broken beyond pain
Hearts that would one day be new
My heart was there in death’s stain

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

My Jesus, because of love
By Your stripes, bought us wholeness
Took our sins, and laid them bare
In death You breathed forgiveness

Who can comprehend, the pure Sacrifice once laid out before us?
Who can partake of this living gift, unless the Father draws us?

Chorus
My Jesus, He died for you
My Jesus, He died for me
My Jesus, how I love You
My Jesus, You died for me

The Right End of the Boat

green boat

Can you be sure, you’re down the right end
Down the right end of the boat?
There’s only one end, and that be the right one
So follow along, and take note

The seas may be glassy, crystal clear
Misty grey, or mirror blue
The seas may be foaming, churning with high waves
Upon this, your journey so new

You may have joined Him, to find sweet peace
Or maybe to escape pain
You may have joined Him, longing for a pure love
Or you’re poor, and looking for gain

Just remember the boat has two sides
Narrow; but come take a seat
One end you’ll join the darkness of ruthless fear
Down the other, Jesus you’ll meet

Make a choice, even when waves are still
Step into the boat, and live
In darkness or brilliant light, you’ll be safe
But only with Him, peace He’ll give

He’ll speak into that need or burden
Get close, and Holy Breath feel
I know which end of the boat you will find me
Come join me, and at His feet kneel

“And He was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake Him, and say unto Him, Master, carest Thou not that we perish?

And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

And He said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?” Mark 4:38-40

MY LOVE STORY FOR YOU (Song Lyrics)

cute kids playing in zoo a baby girl sitting on giraffe vector

Don’t you know that before you were, I knew you
Don’t you know that I heard your very first cry
Your name was already etched in My story
And the days of your life, before Me did fly

I wove you with unfailing cords of My love
And whispered, you are special and meant to be
Before you left heaven’s protective dark pool
I poured in strength and the will to live, freely

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Look around at the beauty that surrounds you
Know that you’re beautiful, so beautiful too
The mirror and others may say otherwise
But they don’t understand your heart like I do

Don’t ever think you’re just passing through this land
Merrily, merrily, peace, peace and more peace
And one day ‘twill be over, yes finally
Because soon there will come a time of release

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Here is My love story, I wrote just for you
Listen closely to the words, let them enter
They are filled with My pure love everlasting
Let them enter, they will feed, clothe and shelter

And as you read and wonder where is the love
There’s only mention of cruel death on the cross
Remember I formed you, brought you forth with love
Through the cross, there’s new life for you in My loss

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win
