TENDING MY FATHER’S SHEEP (Song Lyrics)

Shepherd Boy.jpg

Just a humble shepherd boy
Daily tending my father’s sheep
Roaming through the hills unseen
Eyes upon them, awake, asleep

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Searching for lush, green pastures
Waters flowing abundantly
And hanging leaves for shelter
Safe from winds that lash suddenly

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Watching for dangers and fear
Aware of their frailty, weakness
Needing me to lead them, till
The heavens draw back in darkness

Oh! Why did He chose me
And why not another
I’d strayed so far from home
Far from father, mother
But in His sweetest arms
Carried me to His side
Held me so tenderly
Whispered, here you’ll abide

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

I THOUGHT I WAS HIDDEN (Song Lyrics)

the romantic theme of highdefinition picture 1

I’m in hiding, hiding from love
Hiding from eyes, blessed far above
Always running, going nowhere
Looking for hope, someone to care

I’m lost amidst life’s turbulence
Dark, swirling clouds breeding suspense
Feet they move, I’m going backwards
Head downcast, tug of war upwards

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

I can’t do this, I’m so alone
This heart of mine has turned to stone
The light it fades, joy’s door has shut
A load so weary, heavy; but

You shone Your light, caused me to see
Whispered sweet words, caused me to be
Wrapped in a love, all enduring
Wrapped in a love, love amazing

Chorus
Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them
And all because
All because
I thought I was hidden
Away from Your love
Hidden forever
Separated
I thought
I was hidden

Crying tears, You caught them
Fighting fears, You bound them
Wasted years, restored them

Love sent from Bethlehem
Love sent from Bethlehem

I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM LOVED (A Song in My Heart)

animal beautiful blue

Whispers of my Father’s love
Permeate my soul
Whispers of His pure, sweet love
Love that transcends all

Feeling oh! so beautiful
Feeling oh! so loved
Gift from heaven’s Wonderful
No longer unloved

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Birdies singing blessed tune
Still flowers blooming
All of nature will be soon
No longer groaning

And as I look to the skies
Whether grey or blue
No more held with Satan’s lies
Child of God, brand new

I am beautiful, I am loved
And no one can convince me otherwise
Because the One called Love
Wrote it on my heart
Before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

Yes, before I took my first breath
He breathed love into my heart

THE SONG OF FORGIVENESS (Song Lyrics)

Heart shines background

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Doesn’t matter who said what
Doesn’t matter who did what
It happened, and now it’s time
For hurting heart wounds to shut

Tears will bring hope to the now
So let go, and you’ll be freed
May those wounds be shut and healed
They’ll no longer ache and bleed

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

Don’t be frightened, or afraid
Don’t worry, you’re not alone
The hand of One who loves you
Reaches out now for His own

I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
For all the pain I caused you
If you hurt me, broke my heart
I release and forgive you

Inhale the sweet word of I
Exhale healing, forgive you
Three words that will always be
Etched deep in eternity

Chorus
May we live a life of forgiveness
May we breathe sweet love, I forgive you
May we step to the joy of knowing
Forgiveness is for me, and for you

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
