THE POWER OF LOVE (Song Lyrics)

coastline

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Each stone, a victory, moving forward through the trials
Coming against adversity, the evil one and his wiles

With each breath I take
With each beat of my heart
I give You thanks dear Lord
Thank you for loving me
Before I even knew You
Thank you for forgiving me
When I knew no forgiveness
Thank you for sending Jesus
He’s now my Lord and Saviour
I praise You in the power of Your love

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Each stone, a victory, moving forward through the trials
Coming against adversity, the evil one and his wiles

Stepping upon the stones in the power of love
On my way to heaven, with Father and Jesus above
Wrapped in sweet peace, love shelters under eternal wings
Perfect love, bearing, believing, hoping and enduring all things

SONG ON MY HEART

duck pond australian duck

I woke up this morning with a glorious song on my heart
There were no words to this melody
But the sweet birds were singing their part

And as I listened, I heard His voice, calling softly to me
Today is the day of salvation
When dear loved ones will come unto Me

I feel something wonderful is happening, even though I
See nothing particularly changed
There is a new softness drawing nigh

Oh I woke up this morning with a brand new song on my heart
Whether I see change today, or not
Soon something beautiful will impart

Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.”

I NEED YOU IN MY HEART

flower light effect

I know of You, I’m known of You
In my mind, I’ve made a home
You’re in my thoughts
Oh Lord please come
And live within my heart

I need You in my heart
Not only in the recesses
Of a room so filled with life
I need You in my heart
Deep down within my heart

O Father, please help me
I struggle every day
Just thinking how
How it will ever happen
Please build a stairway
And walk with me
Into my waiting heart

Take my hand
I can’t do it alone
I need You
To show me the way
Out of the bondage
Of my mind
Where I’ve kept You
And not let You
Have all the freedom
Your word commands

For You sent Your Word
And healed them
You sent Your Word
And healed me
And if I keep You
Out of my broken heart
How or who will ever complete me

Look Lord, come and see
I’ve opened the door to my heart
And I could only do it
Because You are here with me
And You softened
This hard, old heart
And brought freedom
Into eternity

Come and fill me
Come and flood me
Flood me with Your presence Lord
Stay in my heart
Never leave
And if I ever try to open
Affliction’s Gate again
Or refuse to walk down Trial’s Way
Please lock and throw away
The key

STAY CLOSE TO ME

sleeping baby on a hand

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

O child
Sweet child
I know it’s hard
I see your tears
Come closer
Feel my arms around you
My peace is yours
Can you believe?
Can you receive?
I love you so much
You
I am your Creator
I know your pain
I know your heart’s desire
I know your struggles
Come closer

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

Sometimes
You have to let go
Even of those you love
I have them
I love them
More than you could ever know
Let go
Take my hand
It’s your life with me
They have their own
They have to find
And be found
Of Me
You cannot do it all
You cannot save them
You can only love them
And point them to Me
Through your love for Me

Stay close to me
Stay by my side
Time is short
Do not fear

Come closer

YOU’RE ALMOST THERE (SONG LYRICS)

woman running

One day, so very soon
Joy is going to break forth
Release will come
It’s waiting
For you to just let go

It’s climbed the highest mountains
Pushed through rugged forest floors
Sailed the stormy waters
So far from distant shores

Seen driest desert regions
Where the flowers couldn’t bloom
Felt deepest darkness where
No birdsong broke the gloom

Listened to the silent voice
Cried out for deliverance
And waited patiently
To break forth in joy’s dance

Days and days and years, still more
When will unending trials end
Very soon, very soon
To you, healing I send

One day, so very soon
Joy is going to break forth
Release will come
It’s waiting
For you to just let go

Let go, My child, let go, and
Open wide your heart to Me
I sent My Word to heal
Now receive Calvary

YOU FOUND ME IN THE GARDEN (Song Lyrics)

woman and roses

Chorus
You found me in the garden
I was crying
You drew me close to Your side
You dried my tears
And told me I am loved

I went into the garden
I could no longer contain
The struggles within
I had to run away
From myself

’Cause I had tried to pretend
That all was perfectly well
Tears I kept hidden
Were silently pooling
And stagnant

But I knew that I had heard
Your sweet voice, so long ago
And I went searching
Into my heart’s garden
By the rose

And there I felt Your whisper
The gentleness of the breeze
At last I found home
I was safe and secure
In Your peace

Chorus
You found me in the garden
I was crying
You drew me close to Your side
You dried my tears
And told me I am loved

BE THANKFUL IN ALL THINGS

highdefinition picture of the beautiful flowers 01

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

I bring you comfort through my word
Come child, do not be afraid
Lift prayer through the heat of the flame
And requests for answers made

And weave thanksgiving into them
I’ll see your obedience
It doesn’t matter how you feel
Trust I’ll come to your defence

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

Some days may be overwhelming
But I’ve experienced all
Remember, victory is yours
And I’ll catch you if you fall

Peace will come, and settle each need
And then My strength in you will
Manifest, and you’ll say good-bye
To fear, so please, ‘Just be still’

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

Let My peace find the hidden pain
Let it bring sweet love again
Wash away the enemy’s stain
For you, I lived, then was slain

Chorus
Sometimes it’s so hard to say, Lord
I’m thankful for each moment of my life
But Your Word says peace will soon flow
Through anxious thoughts, and this beating heart
More than I could ever know

PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN (Song Lyrics)

asian beauty

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

When someone you love isn’t with you
And vast oceans keep hearts apart
When wheels of pain gather momentum
You might feel hopeless; but look up

When a dream is not being fulfilled
And that hope, it has flown away
You’re not well enough to see it through
But it’s a new day, just look up

Pain can shatter vulnerable hearts
If not held together with love
Don’t let pain leave lasting legacies
Push through that sorrow, and look up

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

We all, in unexpected moments
Are trapped in emotional pain
Sometimes physical, spiritual too
Some totally immersed, look up

Pain hurts, buries deep beyond the core
It hides, and thinks no one’s watching
Then the notes of melancholy play
Isolating bonds, oh! look up

Frozen tears silence intensity
You cry till you can cry no more
But dear one, our Healer is so close
Find the strength to cry one more tear

Oh! Find the strength to cry one more tear

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

A MOTHER’S LOVE (Song Lyrics)

mother child help

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

’Cause when is ever the right time
A child, no matter their age
Will understand their mother’s heart
And how she lived out her days

The first time your eyes made contact
With eyes of abandoned love
Never sensing what lay ahead
Or the sleepless night-time hours

Beaming over the wobbly steps
Soft treasures of little hands
All the funny faces between
All the words forming inside

The scraped knees, the tears, and the smiles
Bunny rugs, favourite toys
Adventures beyond heart’s desire
Prepared for school days ahead

The projects, best friends, and parties
Homework, and then changing days
Features, they’re coming and going
Clingy fingers separate

Through the days, the sulks, and the trials
Who could you always run too
Dear mother’s heart ’twas always there
Floury apron, cookies, love

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

Then one day you’re out on your own
School’s finished, career may start
Or study, or marriage, or move
She’s still Mother Dear to you

Disagreement may come between
Two lives are visibly bound
Many days may pass in silence
To mother, you’re still her child

So all I can say in closing
From someone whose loss is great
It doesn’t matter the years since
Parting, it happens, it’s real

Love her while you can, just let go
Of pain, or unforgiveness
Forgive, restore any love lost
Your mother’s heart beats for you

Take her hand in yours, remember
All the times she helped you through
Keep love’s memory locked deep down
May thinking of her bring a smile

Though it might not have always been
Harmony on every side
Maternal love’s like a flower
Be the fragrance of her heart

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … Kathleen and My New Song

plant growing in desert

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

Sometimes You lovingly lead us
Away from all things that we know
Take us to places far away
You lead us, a new life to show

We think it’s for us, this leading
To lift us from adversity
But we reach the destination
And sense loss of security

And then You bring a hurting one
They meet us by the water’s edge
And all that You’ve ever shown us
Flows, and washes away pain’s hedge

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

We cry oh! Lord, why is this so
We’re struggling, we need help as well
Now there’s more brokenness to heal
But that’s when You say, ‘All is well’

I’ve already lifted you out
Out of the dark well of despair
Your purging is done, you are free
’Tis for them that I bought you here

And I will come, deliver them
Bring forth life from the seeds you’ve sown
And in your sweet obedience
Richer days, I will walk you home

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name
