WHEN ONE LOVES A BROKEN HEART (Song Lyrics)

heart love luck

Chorus
Let my words send Your perfect love
And my arms hold heavenly peace
Let all I do, give You glory
To hopelessness, shower release

Lord, please help me to understand
The deep brokenness in others
My heart wraps love around their pain
When two hearts love, it’s all the same
But a fractured heart brings sorrow

Every day I climb this mountain
So dry, yet filled with hidden tears
All I want is for those I love
To know You, and be known of You
For hearts to be bound with Your love

It’s come to this, and sad it seems
I no longer find words to pray
What do I ask for my loved ones
We’re together, and far apart
O Father, may Your mercy fall

Chorus
Let my words send Your perfect love
And my arms hold heavenly peace
Let all I do, give You glory
To hopelessness, shower release

’Cause I’m trying hard as I can
To hold this sad heart together
And there is nothing You can’t do
So I lift wilted prayers above
Believing for a miracle

A miracle in each heart, Lord
A heart of flesh for stubborn stone
O turn each beat towards Your Son
May they each find illusive love
That their heart’s needed all along

Send Your love, and heal
Send Your love, and heal
Send Your love, and heal
Each broken heart reveal
Heal with Your Spirit’s seal
Holy Spirit’s seal
Holy Spirit’s seal

Chorus
Let my words send Your perfect love
And my arms hold heavenly peace
Let all I do, give You glory
To hopelessness, shower release

MY FATHER’S SMILE (Song Lyrics)

sunflowers flowers sky

I see Your face in the morning
And seeing me, brings forth a smile
Such a beautiful smile of love
Whispering, come let’s sit awhile

And Your smile reflects onto me
Captures love in those twinkling eyes
Shines stillness on this trembling heart
Pours light over dark, hollow lies

Chorus
O Your smile brings love
Your smile brings joy
Your smile brings so much peace
Your smile delights
Each breath that I take
Each heartbeat I release, release
Each heartbeat I release

And as I draw close to Your side
Your presence radiates through me
I’m no longer frightened, afraid
You washed my eyes so I could see

The softness of love’s countenance
The enveloping arms of love
O Father, I’m lost in Your heart
Forever my heart lives above

Chorus
O Your smile brings love
Your smile brings joy
Your smile brings so much peace
Your smile delights
Each breath that I take
Each heartbeat I release, release
Each heartbeat I release

This was inspired by the most beautiful smile my soon to be 95 year old father gave me the other morning, when we saw each other for the first time that day.

LOOKING THROUGH THE STORM (Song Lyrics)

bench

Just a little while longer
And the grey seas will turn blue
The swirling waters will subside
And you’ll be made brand new

Don’t look behind you, My child
Don’t strain eyes to look ahead
Ride out the present’s wild moments
In strength of all I’ve said

And you’ll find rainbows hiding
Waiting sweetly just for you
When the shadows of yesterday
Are scattered through and through

Chorus
Looking through the storm
I see the sun is shining
The clouds they hurry past
God’s radiance is beaming

Can’t you see He’s reaching out for you
He’s reaching out for you

Don’t think your life’s forgotten
Don’t listen to stale, old lies
You can’t run, and hide forever
Cherishing those goodbyes

Try and surrender your heart
Let go of hurts and regrets
Know you are so loved and wanted
And He, never forgets

So come bow down before Him
He’ll lead your heart safely home
Father doesn’t like long goodbyes
Embrace the love He’s shown

Chorus
Looking through the storm
I see the sun is shining
The clouds they hurry past
God’s radiance is beaming

Can’t you see He’s reaching out for you
He’s reaching out for you

He’s reaching out for you

WHOM MY SOUL LOVETH (Song Lyrics)

walking in blizzard
Chorus
I’m looking for Him whom my soul loveth
Have you seen Him
Have you seen Him
I’ve lost sight of which way to go
Open my eyes Lord
Let Your love flow
Let Your love flow

Why art thou cast down my soul
Find your hope, dig deep and see
Just look to the Lord, and live
Without hope, you’ll never be free

I’m wandering and searching
For the peace of my True Love
My eyes, they’d lost His image
Looking back, instead of above

I should, should have been watching
Stepping into safe footprints
Instead, burdens consumed me
I was drawn by loved ones’ imprints

Chorus
I’m looking for Him whom my soul loveth
Have you seen Him
Have you seen Him
I’ve lost sight of which way to go
Open my eyes Lord
Let Your love flow
Let Your love flow

I miss His sweet breath on me
The fragrance of sacrifice
I long to hear His heartbeat
It beats for me, He paid the price

And those secret garden walks
Where He took my hand in His
Oh! Where are You my dear Lord
Come back, because my love’s amiss

Then suddenly I hear Him
I see His beautiful form
He’d opened my eyes, and ears
My blurred vision, he did transform

Bridge
Well, Jesus, You’d been here all along
It was me I’d lost, I’d lost, I’d lost
Lost myself in the world’s confusion
Daily surrounded by delusion
Thank you Lord for finding me
Thank you Lord for setting me free
Yes, You’ve set me free, free, free
Yes, You’ve set me free

The truth is
You found me so I could find You
You found me so I could find You

You found me

So I could find You

TEARS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

mirror effect

Looking in the mirror
Who is it that I see
Not always someone beautiful
Staring back at me

And I search for changes
Trying to find the joy
Make myself to smile, masking tears
They fall, drowning joy

Why is it difficult
To see me as You do
The image is so distorted
Please Lord, show me new

Let all the hidden pain
That’s etched so deep within
Rise to the surface, and be gone
Your child will then win

Chorus
Father, let Your tears of mercy cover mine
May they flow through the long-lost hurts, pain, and fears
Flow through valleys, bear much fruit upon the vine
Bringing life to replace my forgotten years
New life to replace all the joy quenching tears

Yes, this child will then win
I’ll see myself clearly
Clothed in Your perfect righteousness
And washed from my sin

I’ll look in the mirror
I’ll see Your reflection
Then I’ll finally see myself
Through Your salvation

My countenance will change
My face, it radiates
Seeing clearly for the first time
Just as Your Word states

That I am forgiven
In Christ I have it all
Through Father’s eyes of love, I see
Me, before the Fall

Chorus
Father, let Your tears of mercy cover mine
May they flow through the long-lost hurts, pain and fears
Flow through valleys, bear much fruit upon the vine
Bringing life to replace my forgotten years
Life to replace all of my forgotten years
New life to replace all the joy quenching tears

THE SONG IN MY HEART (Song Lyrics)

Gladly I surrender
To all You’ve given me
And as You take my hand
Salvation comes to me

Your song, You poured inside
This worn out, weary heart
A heart which couldn’t sing
A heart, torn love apart

Each note, placed silently
In hymns, and psalms, and praise
So quietly at first
I couldn’t discern Your ways

Warmth of love descended
Melting this frosty heart
And like a bird in flight
Sweet joy’s wings, did impart

Yes, this child knows it’s there
Somewhere, so deep within
Just waiting to break forth
For melody to sing

And as a baby bird
Releases her pure notes
Songs of her Lord’s healing
When a Child Sings, love floats

RESURRECTION POWER (Song Lyrics)

20181225_070806.jpg

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power

Because in Him I die
Because in Him I die
Yet I live
Christ lives in me

Victory rise up in me
Listen to His Word
Take all that He’s given you
All you’ve learnt, and heard

Don’t listen to what man says
When the doors seem shut
Rise, rise up sweet victory
All chains have been cut

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power

Breathe in His beautiful life
Stand on solid ground
Let His pure heart beat within
Know love has been found

Take Living Bread, and Water
In all things give praise
Father, Son, Holy Spirit
With One Voice, life raise

Because in Him I die
Because in Him I die
Yet I live
Christ lives in me

Chorus
Oh To know Him
To know Him
In the fellowship of His suffering
To know Him
To know Him
In resurrection power
Resurrection power

IN THE STABLE OF MY HEART (Song Lyrics)

christmas baby boy

Oh Jesus
You’ve found a place
In the stable of my heart
You came in the darkness
And I, I didn’t turn You away

Oh Jesus
Sweet Babe of God
You lay Your life out for mine
Oh how I love You Lord
I lift my hands, praise Your holy name

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

Oh Jesus
You’ve filled this heart
This cold, and this emptiness
Flooded it with heaven
And traded it for love, peace and joy

Oh Jesus
I hope and pray
That many will come to You
Be saved, and healed today
And all darkness will be washed away

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

My Father
You sent sweet hope
Into the world’s hopelessness
Oh may my heart reveal
My love, and eternal thankfulness

Expectantly waiting
Anticipating
I am waiting Lord
With a heart
Ready to burst with joy
Holy Spirit joy

JUST CAN’T SEEM TO GET IT RIGHT (Song Lyrics)

flower violet nature

Chorus
The more I try
My feet are pointing in the wrong direction
I want to do right
But just can’t seem to shake it off
Just can’t seem to get it right
O Lord, help my unbelief

I know so many are struggling
With this very thing
Wanting to please You forever
Obedient in everything

I’m not the only one, O no!
But I feel alone
So, so tired of fighting against
All that tries to usurp Your throne

Chorus
The more I try
My feet are pointing in the wrong direction
I want to do right
But just can’t seem to shake it off
Just can’t seem to get it right
O Lord, help my unbelief

The closer I think I become
The further away
You appear, Your light, it soon fades
O Lord, at Your feet, I now lay

Draw me out of every bondage
Let the chains be gone
Forgive all sin, iniquity
Increase my faith to trust upon

I know this battle is not mine
It belongs to You
Strengthen me to believe the truth
So I may follow You anew

Chorus
The more I try
My feet are pointing in the wrong direction
I want to do right
But just can’t seem to shake it off
Just can’t seem to get it right
O Lord, help my unbelief
