IT’S A JOYFUL DAY (Song Lyrics)

cartoon love birds pattern 04 vector

The birds sing heaven’s melody
The crisp air, it beckons praise
Nature’s cups, they open slowly
Ready to reflect His gaze

Listen to the love they’re singing
Every note holds mystery
History from times past till now
Your name’s there in His story

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Take each song and make it your own
Hear the Lord gently calling
You’ve been given beautiful life
Raised up when you were falling

Yes, it can be so difficult
When everything seems just lost
Are you battling beyond belief
It took all, His death it cost

Bridge
O joyful day, O joyful day
Though the skies may be stormy and dark and grey
O joyful day, O joyful day
Receive Jesus in your heart and there He’ll stay

No, I haven’t experienced
Hurt and pain that some go through
Please come to the Father above
There’s peace through His Son, it’s true

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Yes, He’s in love with you

YOUR LOST ONES ARE HERE, DEAR LORD (A Song for Those With Unsaved Loved Ones)

With all that is happening in the world, and even if it weren’t, my heart’s cry is for those with unsaved loved ones/friends/neighbours … any … God is no respecter of persons and it is not His will that any should perish. Heavenly Father, I am so thankful that Your mercies are new every morning … (this is a re-post from last year).

YOUR LOST LOVED ONES ARE HERE DEAR LORD

O Lord, my heart it cries so silently
Just thinking about eternity
‘Cause those that dwell closest to my heart
Their eyes are open; but they don’t see

Their eyes are open; but they don’t see Lord
Their eyes are open; but they don’t see
See the reality of truth Lord
The reality You’ve given me

Chorus
O dear Shepherd, please follow the trail
That leads to tears of the broken heart
You’ll find them behind the closed doors dear Lord
You’ll find Your lost ones are here dear Lord
O Your lost, broken ones are here

O Lord, place the desire deep within
Their hearts to seek for You, yes, today
Plant the seed in soil that You’ve healed
And water it on the narrow way

Then will I see as You will see them see
Salvation’s mercy and grace and love
Your name will again be magnified
Lifted majestically above

Chorus
O dear Shepherd, please follow the trail
That leads to tears of the broken heart
You’ll find them behind the closed doors dear Lord
You’ll find Your lost ones are here dear Lord
O Your lost, broken ones are here

Knock and I’ll pray they bid you enter
Knock, please don’t turn away
Knock, can You hear their cry “I surrender”
Knock, come in and stay

Chorus
O dear Shepherd, please follow the trail
That leads to tears of the broken heart
You’ll find them behind the closed doors dear Lord
You’ll find Your lost ones are here dear Lord
O Your lost, broken ones are here

THE SON WILL ALWAYS SHINE (A Song of Hope)

shining sun after the storm

When days, when days
The dark clouds do hide my joy
Those days, those days
Are the ones I should most enjoy

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
The dark clouds make me question
Those days, those days
Are blessed with inspiration

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
The dark clouds make me sad
Those days, those days
In His time they’ll make me glad

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
Hidden light breaks through and shines
Those days, those days
On my heart His name He signs

Bridge
Oh! The Son will always shine
Through sweet blue skies or grey
So I’ll never feel overwhel-med
When I cry out to Him and say
I need You, I need You
My heart needs melting too!
I need You, I need You
Be my sun, oh! Son to stay

Chorus
So I listened, I listened
Through grey skies and wearisome tears
’Cause I knew the Son, He always shines
And melts away all fears

‘TWAS THE STORMIEST OF NIGHTS (A Song for the Roughest of Days)

'TWAS THE STORMIEST OF NIGHTS

Please read yesterday’s post first https://poetrycottage.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/today-the-crying-heart-is-mine/ because today’s post contains the song lyrics the Lord gave me at the end of a very difficult day. He always delivers those who cry out to Him.

“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”  Psalm 34:3-4 KJV

Read the rest of this beautiful Psalm here http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+34&version=KJV

T’WAS THE STORMIEST OF NIGHTS (A Song for the Roughest of Days)
‘Twas the stormiest of nights
As black as black could be
I fain was near, my fight to lose
Till my Saviour rescued me

Nary stars a-shining, no not one
The waves grew higher still
But then a voice I knew full well
Reassured me of God’s will

I searched all round; but could not see
“Rest assured”, He said, “All’s well”
And even though I saw Him not
My fears He did assuage and quell

Chorus
O I surrendered every heartbeat
I surrendered and He stepped right in
I surrendered all that I thought sustained me
Only then was I guaranteed to win
Only then was I guaranteed to win

No matter how hot the fiery trial
No matter how much pain, despair
I always know He is in complete control
I always know He’s forever there

Chorus
O I surrendered every heartbeat
I surrendered and He stepped right in
I surrendered all that I thought sustained me
Only then was I guaranteed to win
Only then was I guaranteed to win
