YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … (Please Listen and Be Blessed)

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 brought 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

THE SHIP OF WELLNESS (Song Lyrics)

sail forward lake constance

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

A life cradled in safety

A life with no fear

Knowing that I’m not alone

That Jesus is here

 

Oceans roll, and seabirds cry

Songs fragrance the wind

As white sails mirror the clouds

A new life begins

 

I’m on the ship of wellness

Abundantly free

Sickness is tossed overboard

Bye captivity

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

And I declare I am rich

Rich in God’s mercy

And I declare I am healed

Grave clothes out to sea

 

I sail through the trials of life

Sheltered in His arms

Picturing the grand old ship

Safe from every harm

 

Yes, free to sail wherever

His Spirit does lead

No bondage to weigh me down

Healing is decreed

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

Inspired by …

UNDERLYING CAUSE

daisy flower plant

The rocks are being pounded

The sky, it clouds over

I run and take shelter

Through the daisy field

Through the babbling brook

The sky is getting darker

The rain, it starts softly

Then very quickly in torrents

I keep on running

But I can’t seem to move

My feet are going nowhere

I see myself ahead

But why aren’t I there

That’s because the real me

Has left the old behind

There’s an underlying cause

Of why I’ve left myself

I’m getting soaked

But the new me is dancing

Dancing through the daisies

Long hair flowing

In the gentle breeze

Abandoned in fabric beautiful

Singing praises to my Creator

I stop looking behind

I don’t like what I see

I’m moving forward now

I’ve left the old me

YOUR WORD IS ALIVE (Song Lyrics)

flock of sheep sheep group

Soft as a lullaby
You sweetly sing to me
Whispering words of love
In childlike melody

Breeze through forest treetop
A gentle mountain stream
Sunlight, moonlight and stars
Sometimes through silent dream

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

Hills of verdant pasture
Sheep sleeping, they’re content
Stormy clouds, they gather
Peals of thunder, they rent

Over valley roaring
The leaping flames of fire
Burning deep within me
Bring wisdom to inspire

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

Yes Lord, Your living word
No matter the volume
Brings life, abundant life
With which our hearts commune

Alive, alive, alive
Living, Your word brings life
Pierces deepest darkness
And drives out every strife

Bridge
Calling, calling
You call my name
I’m not the same
I hear Your voice
I hear You call
You call my name

Lord
Here I am

Chorus
Your word is alive
Alive, alive
Your word is so beautiful
Come bind Yourself with this longing heart
And make Yourself at home
At home
Lord, make Yourself at home

IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT (Song Lyrics)

water leaves reflections

Chorus
Are you hiding within your heart, dear child
Longing for someone to find you
Does each day find you struggling to find
Your identity that’s lost, forsaken
Stop looking at what you can see
Can see
See staring back at you
Take a deeper dive into the water of life
See yourself in My reflection

See yourself in My reflection
See yourself
Yourself, free
See yourself in My reflection
Instead of you
You’ll see Me

Guilt plays a ruthless, endless game
Places all the blame upon you
But I’m here to say, My dear child
It’s not your fault, you’re not at fault
And I’ve provided the remedy

Shame is the bondage of your past
And pain wraps its arms around it
But I’m here to say, My dear child
It’s not your fault, you’re not at fault
And I’ve provided the remedy

Chorus
Are you hiding within your heart, dear child
Longing for someone to find you
Does each day find you struggling to find
Your identity that’s lost, forsaken
Stop looking at what you can see
Can see
See staring back at you
Take a deeper dive into the water of life
See yourself in My reflection

See yourself in My reflection
See yourself
Yourself, free
See yourself in My reflection
Instead of you
You’ll see Me

Sickness entwines, steals your freedom
Fear covers with clouds of despair
But I’m here to say, My dear child
It’s not your fault, you’re not at fault
And I’ve provided the remedy

Hopelessness sings confusing lies
Loneliness speaks to the hurting
But I’m here to say, My dear child
It’s not your fault, you’re not at fault
And I’ve provided the remedy

Chorus
Are you hiding within your heart, dear child
Longing for someone to find you
Does each day find you struggling to find
Your identity that’s lost, forsaken
Stop looking at what you can see
Can see
See staring back at you
Take a deeper dive into the water of life
See yourself in My reflection

See yourself in My reflection
See yourself
Yourself, free
See yourself in My reflection
Instead of you
You’ll see Me

LET’S TURN THIS ALL AROUND (Song Lyrics)

peace dove window glass

The days are growing darker and darker
It is taking more and more strength to see
So much is happening daily, hourly
How will this affect friends, family, me

It’s not too late
Whilst there is breath
To turn this all around
Around
Father waits for us
Waits for us
That we be found
Living and moving and being in Christ

Threats of war, earthquakes, viruses not seen
Told to do this, do that, follow blindly
Faces once smiling, now crudely concealed
No more hugging allowed, sadness set free

Words no longer flow amongst our friendships
Relationships have changed much, doors have closed
And yet, strangely through it all, love prevails
And all that’s hidden is being exposed

It’s not too late
Whilst there is breath
To turn this all around
Around
Father waits for us
Waits for us
That we be found
Living and moving and being in Christ

Yes, the Lord knows the hearts of everyone
Nothing we are thinking, can escape Him
Man cannot plan, deceive, confuse mankind
Without Father’s knowledge, He’ll reveal them

2 x
Let’s turn this all around
Around, around
Church, rise up, you’re on solid ground
Let’s take our armour and stand firm
The battle is the Lord’s, shout it out
Affirm

WHEN TWO HEARTS, THEY MEET (Song Lyrics)

two hearts and flowers

Chorus
Come closer
Let go
Drop it all at My feet
Gaze into My eyes
See My love crush defeat
Take of this power
Take ahold of My hand
Life overflowing
When two hearts, they meet

As the sky embraces the cloud
As the tree embraces the sky
As the flower embraces the tree
Reach out dear child
Embrace Me

Entwine me
Hold me
Never let me go
Jesus, my Saviour
How I love Thee so
Jesus, my Saviour
The only One I know
Who forgives all my sins
Heals all within
Oh! How I love Thee so

As the river becomes the sea
As the stream becomes the river
As the falling rain becomes the stream
Reach out dear child
Dare to dream

Chorus
Come closer
Let go
Drop it all at My feet
Gaze into My eyes
See My love crush defeat
Take of this power
Take ahold of My hand
Life overflowing
When two hearts, they meet

Entwine me
Teach me
Lead the way to go
Jesus, my Saviour
How I love Thee so
Jesus, my Saviour
The only One I know
Who cradles me under
Sweet wings of hope
Oh! How I love Thee so

Our hearts beat together
Our flesh becomes one
Our eyes see the brightness
Of each morning sun
Our ears hear the glory
Of nature’s melody
Oh Jesus, Saviour
You are all that I need
You are everything
Everything
All that I need

HE LEADS ME SLOWLY …. To Be Sung Slowly

woman on cliffs gazing at mountains

He leads me slowly
He leads me slowly
Through this dark, dark vale
Through this dark, dark vale

Repeat
Oh!

I don’t know where He’s leading
I don’t know where He’s leading
Through this darkness
Through this darkness

But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

All I see are dark clouds
All I see are dark clouds
In this dark, dark vale
In this dark, dark vale

Clouds raining down my tears
Clouds raining down my tears
But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me

He has my life, He has my heart
He has my life, He has my heart
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

He said He will never leave me
He said He will never forsake me
In this darkness
In this darkness

So I tread slowly forward
Not knowing what lays before me
I take His hand in mine
He takes my hand in His
He leads me slowly forward
Out of this dark, dark vale
Out of this dark, dark vale

And I know that breakthrough is coming
Yes, I know that breakthrough is coming
From this darkness
From this darkness
Because sweet child, His child
Your breakthrough it’s here
Your breakthrough is already here
Your breakthrough is already here

And the way is lined with a flower
Deep red, as only pure blood runs
I am healed and delivered
With salvation that He won

Oh! He led me out
From such unrelenting pain
Out of much hostility
Out of sinful shame
Out of anxious fear
Out of all my pride
Yes, Jesus, He led me
He was always by my side

THE CHRISTMAS LOVE SONG

christmas decorations

O sweet Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever born
Your notes are sweeter than honey
With golden melody You adorn

You draw the lost hope out of darkness
You heal every broken heart
You seal each life with eternity
And mend all that’s torn apart

Can you feel new life, and faith birthing
Do you dream of being free
Can you hear the melodies echo
Have you found love’s remedy

Just listen to the Christmas love song
And let Christ’s joy be released
Break off the cold chains of hopelessness
Know that hopelessness has ceased

O This Christmas love song
This Christmas
Find yourself in Him
He was born
And your name was sung
Woven in angelic lullaby
Falling from heaven when His time was come

It’s the Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever sung
The notes are sweeter than honey
The chords bound before the world begun
