FAITH WALKS ON (Song Lyrics)

Inspired by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiCtLT-natk

poppies mountain italy

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

When that mountain rises sharply before you
When that mountain is hidden in dark, thick mist
When it seems as though your mountain is on fire
Stand strong dear brother and dear sister, resist

Resist the temptation to keep on circling
Going round and round looking for health restored
You’ve told that mountain to be no more, no more
So move on, walk on, your faith is on record

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

I hear you cry, I need help, I can’t move on
This burden’s too great, it has me tightly bound
It’s all I can remember, it’s been so long
Even forgotten I was lost and then found

Chorus
Don’t look back at all of your mountains
Just pray, give thanks and then walk on
Have faith in heavenly Father
And on His precious Word lean upon

You can do this, my friend, just take one small step
Turn your ears to hear the voice of your Saviour
He knows your affliction, He knows your sorrows
In His name take that step through the open door

’Cause He’s already defeated every foe
He’s not going to let that mountain defeat you
So stand tall, believe, let your heart beat with His
Just pray, give thanks, and then you’ll walk on anew

Oh! Faith walks on
Sweet faith doesn’t doubt
Faith walks on
Doesn’t keep turning round about
Faith walks on
Can you hear the blessed song
’Cause when faith walks on
You’ll know you’ve been delivered all along
You’ve been delivered all along

THE SHEEP OF YOUR PASTURE (Song Lyrics)

sheep sheep face face

You draw us into the heart of love
From a life of darkness, void of love
We hear a gentle whisper, a call
Finding ourselves face to face, we fall

Fall into life, never before breathed
Our restless hearts are no longer grieved
Hope arises, salvation is birthed
Moving through Spirit from cursed to blessed

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

A moment in time, already planned
Something so wonderful, something grand
You spoke, a new creature came alive
And then joy sprung forth, joy to revive

A journey begins, a babe in Christ
We learn of a pure Lamb sacrificed
Each day brings us a revelation
As we read Your Word, jubilation

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

Then come storms and trials, we question
Where we dwell in Your resurrection
Digging deeper Your light shines upon
You then show us that we have been won

And because of Jesus, we are safe
To live as good wheat, no longer chaff
All has been placed lovingly inside
Wholeness, healing, forgiveness inside

Chorus
We are Your people
We are Your sheep
You lead us to green pasture
As You said You would
We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

We’ll sing sweet praises
We’ll give You thanks
Oh! How we love You
Our future secure

WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THIS WORLD (Song Lyrics)

tree in fog at night

We are the light of this world
So why do we try and hide
We’re either followers of Jesus
Or being driven by the one who lied

Shine forth dear child
Shine forth
Let the warmth of your smile shine forth
Draw those in darkness to the One within
Embrace them with the Father’s love
His love
Embrace them with Father’s love

We are the light of this world
In the True Vine we abide
Bringing forth truth, and fruit in season
Witnessing boldly with Him by our side

Shine forth dear child
Shine forth
Let the warmth of your smile shine forth
Draw those in darkness to the One within
Embrace them with the Father’s love
His love
Embrace them with Father’s love

We are the light of this world
Because of the One who died
Lit from within, and cleansed from all sin
It is finished … It is finished, He cried

Shine forth dear child
Shine forth
Let the warmth of your smile shine forth
Draw those in darkness to the One within
Embrace them with the Father’s love
His love
Embrace them with Father’s love

FOREVER I SAY I DO (Song Lyrics)

ballet tips dance

Well, I’m standing at the end of the road
I’ve done all I can do
The Lord has brought me here thus far
It’s time to say I do

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

And I’ll keep my blessed eyes steadfast on You
Turn not to left or right
You are the only way, ’tis true
You’re with me in this fight

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

And I’ll keep my blessed ears tuned to Your word
’Cause faith comes by hearing
O remove all that hinders me
Keep me dancing, singing

I do, Lord
I do
I do believe in You
You’ve saved me
Healed me
Given me life
I do, I do, I do

O Jesus, I cannot thank You enough
For life’s eternal rope
And I am blessed, so very blessed
Yes, blessed beyond all hope

You saved me
Healed me
Loved me
Forever I say I do
I do
Forever I say I do

RIVERS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

fast flowing river

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has chosen
This heart for His child
Why does He love me so

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has saved me
Lovingly made me
Why does He love me so

His beautiful Word
Sings a melody
And all my life, will lead
And this I know
For His Word tells me so
And His Word is all that I need

O Jesus, O Jesus
Your rivers of mercy consumed
And this hidden bud
Once captive in thorns
Is free at last
Fragrance released

Broken hearts will be touched
Songs of joy enter in
Darkness, it will have to flee
And all because, our Father’s love
Is embraced in unfailing mercy

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have chosen
This heart for Your child
Why do You love me so

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have saved me
Lovingly made me
Why do You love me so

Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
Flowing from Your throne
Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
I will never be alone
Never be alone
Never be alone
Rivers of mercy

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR HEART TO JESUS (Song Lyrics)

beautiful sea view

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

The night has seemed never ending
The cold waves, billowing much pain
Through teary eyes you strain to see
Release from whence this turmoil came

You feel so lonely, so alone
Lost in years of buffeting rain
Listen dear child, open your heart
I can hear Him calling your name

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

A ray of hope descends on you
The clouds scatter, and clear a way
Storms leave on the tail of His breath
Our Lord has living words to say

I am the Answer, your Saviour
I am all you’ve been searching for
My love, I’ve finally found you
And I’m bringing you home to shore

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

STANDING BY THE SEASHORE (Song Lyrics)

child looking at the sea

Coming to a place where my heart beats, and is forever yours
I stand upon the shoreline, and listen to heaven’s applause
It’s taken me so long, the sand gently brushed all pain away
For me to finally hear Your voice, and say, I’m here to stay

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

Your sweet voice was always distant, and yet it was always there
Sometimes, even, O please forgive me, I thought You didn’t care
But now my eyes have been opened, to see what I couldn’t hear
That it’s with my heart I hear You, not with my physical ear

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

And Lord, now that I know the whole truth, the truth shall make me free
All who I am in Christ, all who I was created to be
You will show me, and as I gaze into Your beautiful eyes
I’m standing by the seashore, hearing Your voice instead of lies

You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

O Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

PLEASE STAY

PLEASE STAY image

You washed me white as snow
You took my stains away
Oh Lord, I love You so
Please stay

You held me as I wept
My pain and grief You bore
My heart cried out to You
Please stay

I could not see for tears
All that You’d done for me
Your life You sacrificed
Please stay

Please help me see the truth
Please help my unbelief
Please heal my broken heart
Please stay

(Insert your name here), open your eyes
I spoke these words for you
It is finished, and all that I’ve done
Has given you the victory
In Me, you’ve already won
And I won’t leave you
I won’t ever forget you
Our Father, He sent Me for you
And We’ve loved you ere the world begun
Over your life, Our love. We’ve sung

So now I say to you
Please stay
Please stay
I’ve healed your heart
Poured My love in
I’ve sealed your life
Cleansed you from sin
Please stay
Please stay

I WILL CONQUER THIS MOUNTAIN (Song Lyrics)

eagle landing

Three steps forward, two steps back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

Will I ever conquer
This mountain in front of me
The scenery keeps on changing
I think I’ve reached the top
Then something else
Is in front of me

There are days of pure joy
Welling up inside of me
And I keep moving in Your strength
’Cause it sure ain’t mine, no
This strength is Yours
Sweetly leading me

I will not give up
I will not give up

But there are days of tears
My heart reveals the old me
O Lord, please heal this hidden pain
Take all sorrow, all shame
All unbelief
This burden off me

I will not give up
I will not give up

You did not die in vain
All life’s sin was drained from me
Now I can take Your yoke Jesus
Yoke easy, burden light
And I can climb
As Your hand lifts me

O Yes, I will conquer
This mountain that threatens me
Because Jesus, You’re my Saviour
And this I know, I’m free
You’re by my side
You have rescued me

Three steps forward, one step back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

I will not give up
I will not give up

Three steps forward, no steps back
I did not give up
I did not give up
This day I reached my destiny
This day I reached my destiny

Don’t ever give up
Don’t ever give up

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
