THIS SAND WILL NEVER HOLD ME UP (Song Lyrics)

Beach 2

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

This sand will never hold me up
As I walk, and look for treasures
Seeking for someone, anything
Wasting time on empty leisures

It looks so vast, so deep, so firm
And sometimes, the tide makes it so
But in comes intense furnace heat
And burns where the tears of hope flow

It is soon too soft to walk on
This once appealing field of gold
Dreams sink, and there’s no-one around
To catch me, strengthen me, and hold

But I trusted in all I saw
I said, I trusted in all things
Things laid before desperate eyes
Now I see, the bondage it brings

I’d been trying to build this wall
Each day, upon my lonely heart
Piece upon piece of worthlessness
Just leaving me falling apart

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

I’d place each begging so called gift
Those that only money can buy
Stand back, feel myself slowly sink
Once again feel the pain, and sigh

Well this kept going on and on
Three steps forward, three steps backward
Till a beautiful stranger, He
Showed me love to build me upward

This sand will never hold me up
Only love can mend brokenness
I may be brought down in pieces
But He will complete to wholeness

He will perfect me in His time
No more to do this on my own
Dazzling jewels He soon will place
Strong foundation, no longer blown

Who is this beautiful stranger
Appearing at my hour of need
’Tis Jesus, my Lord and Saviour
Took my hand and with His, did lead

Chorus
No, no, no, no, no
Please don’t build lost dreams upon the sand
They may shine like gold; but never stand
Stop trying to mend the crumbling wall
With sweet worldly fill, it’s sure to fall

Only the One who made the earth
Spoke, and the heavens did sparkle
Can embroider each wall of life
Give solid ground on Holy Hill

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

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

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

HE’LL BE WITH ME (Song Lyrics)

Written for a dear loved one who is hurting …

tropical storm is coming

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

And so I cry
Father in heaven, I know You’re there; but I feel so very alone
Father, please speak the Word, and lift me to Your throne

All plans are crumbling fast, each day delivers grief
I’m being cornered, and it’s shaking my belief

I want to do what’s right, and shun all that is wrong
But waves and flames around me, have silenced my song

Each time I get back up, here comes the floor again
Trying hard to see You, forgetting all this pain

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

But I know You’re there, and because of this, I say
Lord be magnified this day, magnified this day

For I can do nothing, and nothing I can do
To bring about deliverance, it’s up to You

And so I’ll rest in the storm, sing in the trial
This is not forever, only for a short while

I will get stronger, and the sorrows soon will leave
As long as my beating heart to Your heart, can cleave

I’ll listen to His word
For His word is all I need
His word created, sustains me
His word will always feed
And one day I’ll stand before Him
And be shown my life in His
I’ll see His protective arms locked in mine
With each breath He ever freed

Chorus
He’ll be with me in the wild, wild storms
Those which threaten to knock me over
He’ll be with me in the fiery trials
Those that still smolder under cover
When all seems hopeless, no end in sight
And darkness appears to be winning
I’ll look into His beautiful eyes
And know, He cared from the beginning

ALL BEING WELL (Song Lyrics)

IMG_8105.JPG

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in Christ Jesus
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only in forgiveness
Will all be well

How do you tell
A loved one whom you love
That only through heaven’s Love
Will all be well

Chorus
I’ll see you in the morning
All being well
When darkness lifts
And new light shines
Upon the day to come
Yes, I’ll see you in the morning
All being well

Only in salvation
Only in His pure, free love
Only believing and receiving truth
Will you be well

Only in the Shepherd
Only as one of His sheep
Only allowing yourself to be led
Will you be well

All will be well
In the morning bright
Dear sweet loved one
May the Lord speak to you this night

WHEN THE ONES THAT YOU LOVE DON’T BELIEVE (Song Lyrics)

dying flower
Chorus
Sometimes it hurts so much you want to cry
’Cause the world that you see all around you
Looks ever so much, much more beautiful
You want so badly to show your loved ones
And share the love that you have been given
But there’s a wall of, I don’t want to know
When the ones that you love don’t believe

They’re with you in heart
Whether they’re with you
Keep lifting them up
Pray for hearts anew

Pray for hearts anew
All deserve a chance
Love can fill the old
Cause a heart to dance

Cause a heart to dance
Open prison doors
Sing sweet salvation
Lift to heaven’s shores

Bridge
Hold on to your hope for them always
Don’t despair that it’s ever too late
Just trust in the One who did save you
And stay close to the Shepherd’s life gate

Chorus
Sometimes it hurts so much you want to cry
’Cause the world that you see all around you
Looks ever so much, much more beautiful
You want so badly to show your loved ones
And share the love that you have been given
But there’s a wall of, I don’t want to know
When the ones that you love don’t believe

So keep on, keeping on
Reading, praying, watching
The Way, the Truth, the Life
The Only Way
The Only Truth
The Only Life
The Lord Jesus Christ

And one day, just maybe
They’ll see what you can see
Oh! They’ll see what you can see

THE MARRIAGE SONG

free vector origami love bauble with gift
Is love on the horizon
Are you waiting endlessly
For that perfect one to love
Trust that one day it will be

Chorus
Love finds
Its way
One day
Someday
Hold on
Hold on
The song’s in someone’s heart
Maybe a few sweet notes
Are still missing
But one day
One day
A beautiful love song will start

Then it happens suddenly
The storms become soft showers
Love, it becomes life’s focus
Each breath sending sweet flowers

Soon the eyes melt into one
What follows is this story
Sharing a new marriage song
Direct from heaven’s glory

When a heart becomes entwined
With another’s melody
Such a beautiful union
Only love can know and see

Slowly hands are held with care
And the chorus starts to flow
Moments capture resonance
As the days of loving grow

Each month becomes a verse and
Then each year a harmony
Fondest memories appear
And become two’s charity

Soon a song becomes a poem
As trials and joy enrich it
So to all who love, are loved
To love forever commit

Chorus
Love found
Its way
That day
Sweet day
Holding on
Holding on
The song in someone’s heart
Found those few sweet notes
No longer missing
That day
Sweet day
A beautiful love song did start

TRY TO BE STILL (Song Lyrics)

peace tree calm

When there is trouble all around
And friends they leave without a trace
Storms, they come and leave a sadness
But they clarify My Love’s face

’Cause when you feel you’re all alone
And the way before is darkened
Just listen for My small, still voice
It’s peace for all who have harkened

Chorus
Try to be still
Try to be still
Hours may linger
Try to be still
Pain, it may hinder
Just try to be still
Be still and listen
For this is God’s will

But you say, my mind, it wanders
And there’s always something to do
How can I try, try to be still
When there’s always something to do

You’ll find the answer in My word
My word that reflects perfect Love
My beloved Son is the Word
And wisdom for you lies above

Chorus
You can be still
You can be still
Hours may linger
You can be still
Pain, I will lift it
And help you be still
Be still and listen
For this is God’s will
