IN THE CENTRE OF THE SHEEPFOLD (SONG LYRICS)

flock of sheep group rest

Jesus, in the centre of Your fold
No fear, no dread shall come upon me
For in Your arms You lovingly hold
All my life, and dreams, and destiny

So if I wander, and go astray
And lose sight of Your beautiful face
Lord, may Your voice never fade away
And estrange me from mercy and grace

Chorus
In the centre of the sheepfold, is where my Master lives
Caring, loving, protecting me, with hands, He sweetly gives
And I am never alone, when I’m held close by His side
Lavished in adoring love, a new creation, His bride

Your rod at times may convict my heart
But Your staff is never far behind
Pours out comfort if I fall apart
Together, our hearts forever bind

You may hear me whisper little bleats
Sometimes hopeless cries will overwhelm
But Your power, love, sound mind defeats
Dries my tears, lifts me to heaven’s realm

Oh! In the centre
In the centre
’Tis where I want to stay
Every minute, every hour
Jesus, every moment of every day

Chorus
In the centre of the sheepfold, is where my Master lives
Caring, loving, protecting me, with hands, He sweetly gives
And I am never alone, when I’m held close by His side
Lavished in adoring love, a new creation, His bride

LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I (Song Lyrics)

I took this stunning photo yesterday from inside a train …

Lead Me to the Rock that is Higher than I

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

I can’t stand on my own anymore
I’m losing sight of the distant shore
I need help from the One I adore
I cry out from my very heart’s core

Stability is so hard to find
My body’s weak, confusion in mind
Looking in wrong places, peace to find
Desperate to escape, to unwind

Please lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

My fading eyesight wanders away
Dark waters close in with each new day
The sun has lost its warm healing ray
Lord, I’m so sorry, I’ll kneel and pray

My Father, without You, I am lost
I know how much for Your Son, it cost
It cost Him, cost You ’cause I was lost
You’re my Rock, forever. At all cost

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Oh! Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Psalm 61:1-4
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. Selah.
