IT’S A JOYFUL DAY (Song Lyrics)

cartoon love birds pattern 04 vector

The birds sing heaven’s melody
The crisp air, it beckons praise
Nature’s cups, they open slowly
Ready to reflect His gaze

Listen to the love they’re singing
Every note holds mystery
History from times past till now
Your name’s there in His story

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Take each song and make it your own
Hear the Lord gently calling
You’ve been given beautiful life
Raised up when you were falling

Yes, it can be so difficult
When everything seems just lost
Are you battling beyond belief
It took all, His death it cost

Bridge
O joyful day, O joyful day
Though the skies may be stormy and dark and grey
O joyful day, O joyful day
Receive Jesus in your heart and there He’ll stay

No, I haven’t experienced
Hurt and pain that some go through
Please come to the Father above
There’s peace through His Son, it’s true

Chorus
You may be feeling lonely
You may be feeling blue
You may have given up
Please don’t
’Cause He’s in love with you

Yes, He’s in love with you

He Meets Me

happy family father and son element vector

And He meets me where I’m at
Along the shoreline of each heartbeat
Seas roll in, He says, ‘No more’
‘Peace be still, feel My hand, not the heat’

And He meets me with each thought
Dispels every lie from perfect truth
Storms roll in, He says, ‘Don’t fear’
‘Let Me fill your mind with renewed youth’

And He meets me in each step
As I walk the path lit by His word
Sometimes, darkness closes in
He says, ‘Listen to the way you’ve heard’

And He meets me through my sight
Gives me beauty that’s too much to bear
And when I feel overwhelmed
He says, ‘’Tis for you, this love to wear’

And He meets me in each sound
Orchestral heights or softest quietness
A small, still voice can be heard
‘Through each trial, I’m always here to bless’

And He meets me in my heart
Breaking down the cold, mountainous wall
He says, ‘I love you, my child’
‘And I will answer you when you call’

Yes, He meets me everywhere
And I could go on and on and on
Through touch and smell
Through each word spoken
’Tis Him I lean upon

silhouette woman tree

Even more beautiful … Please be blessed as I have been.

PLEASE HUG THEM (for those who are hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst, poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despair without income
Families torn, separated
Floods, fires and storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Among them that are so close
Feeling left behind and worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Bridge
Hug them as they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees lower to the floor
And with joy they praise and adore

So that is why I cry now
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Lord, reveal Your great Name

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away
And take their pain away

Little Lost Lambsie

sheep lamb new zealand

He had said to follow him
He had said she would be safe
He had said all would be well
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said he’d feed her daily
He had said they’d be waters clean
He had said he’d never leave her
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said to watch him closely
He had said to look straight ahead
He had said he’d lead her through the storms
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said he’d always love her
He had said she was his very own
He had said he’d always known her
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

He had said she’d live forever
He had said to never fear
He had said he was her hiding place
Then how did Lambsie become so lost?

Little lost Lambsie
Oh! Little lost Lambsie
Do not worry
Dry your tears
He is looking for you right now
He won’t be long
So don’t give up
You may have wandered
Far and wide
You may have struggled
Keeping up
You may have questioned
His love for you
His need for you
His purpose for you
Oh! Little lost Lambsie
Don’t ever think
He doesn’t love you
He doesn’t need you
He has no purpose for you
Little lost Lambsie
He loves you
He needs you
He has a purpose for you
You are his
You belong
You belong with Him
He is your Shepherd

And when you are found
Know that He knew
Where you were
All along …

You were never lost
In His eyes
Only in your own

MY LOVE STORY FOR YOU (Song Lyrics)

cute kids playing in zoo a baby girl sitting on giraffe vector

Don’t you know that before you were, I knew you
Don’t you know that I heard your very first cry
Your name was already etched in My story
And the days of your life, before Me did fly

I wove you with unfailing cords of My love
And whispered, you are special and meant to be
Before you left heaven’s protective dark pool
I poured in strength and the will to live, freely

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Look around at the beauty that surrounds you
Know that you’re beautiful, so beautiful too
The mirror and others may say otherwise
But they don’t understand your heart like I do

Don’t ever think you’re just passing through this land
Merrily, merrily, peace, peace and more peace
And one day ‘twill be over, yes finally
Because soon there will come a time of release

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Here is My love story, I wrote just for you
Listen closely to the words, let them enter
They are filled with My pure love everlasting
Let them enter, they will feed, clothe and shelter

And as you read and wonder where is the love
There’s only mention of cruel death on the cross
Remember I formed you, brought you forth with love
Through the cross, there’s new life for you in My loss

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

LET LOVE LOVE YOU (Song Lyrics)

Flora Love Shape

What to do with a heart that’s been broken
What to do when no love has been spoken
Tell yourself, it’s okay, yes, it’s okay
Doesn’t matter what they do or don’t say
’Cause I love me, and I know I am loved
I’m loved by my Father and He is love

He is love, He is love, and none can match
His beauty, His love, and no-one, nothing
Can tear us apart, I’m sewn right into
The depths of His heart, the depths of His heart
I won’t listen to negativity
I’ll go out with joy, peace will lead me forth

Whenever the doubts, the pains they threaten
I’ll squeeze His hand tighter, woes will lessen
I’ll know and feel His everlasting love
Embrace, guide me, encourage and love me
I’ll hear Him whisper, keep loving yourself
With the love I’ve given you, and My love
Will flow sweetly from you unto others

Yes, My love will heal wherever it goes
I’ll send it to hearts that the world ignores
I’ll flood lives with hope and chase out despair
I’ll dry falling tears and fill with laughter
I’ll strengthen the weak, implant My peace; but
You must be willing in loving yourself
To know your heart’s healed … Let the healing flow

Let Love love you

A PERSONAL QUESTION AND HOPEFUL RESPONSE

The Freedom Bird

Will it be
That I
Will be
Left Behind
In life’s shadow
Where birds
No longer sing
And the breeze
Brings no refreshment
Where darkness
Only reigns
And light
No longer penetrates
Where loved ones’ voices
Are no longer heard
I’m alone
Alone and trapped
The door has closed
The heat
Intensifies
No escape
Lord, please
Help me
I don’t want
To be labelled
Labelled with a barcode
Where my price
Is visible to all who see
Please open the door
One last time
Set me free
’Tis only
The price
You paid
That I want
All to see

Another Beautifully Sung Song of Mine … AT THE FEET OF JESUS … Please Listen and Be Blessed

flower arrangement 1

Once again Kathleen (http://www.kathleensfaithwalk.com) has blessed me with bringing my song lyrics to life.

Below you will find the original lyrics. They have been changed slightly to harmonize with the music. There is another version, which she may post on her blog at another time. This is my favourite.

AT THE FEET OF JESUS
Chorus
At the feet
At the feet
At the feet of the One who adores you
Lay your heart
Lay your fears
Lay your heavy burdens down
Just surrender and with grace, with love
Amazing grace, amazing love
He will forever upon thee, set His crown

At the feet of Jesus
That’s where mercy does flow
At the feet of Jesus
All tears and sorrow go

At the feet of Jesus
Life’s journey it will slow
At the feet of Jesus
By His word will you know

Chorus
At the feet
At the feet
At the feet of the One who adores you
Lay your heart
Lay your fears
Lay your heavy burdens down
Just surrender and with grace, with love
Amazing grace, amazing love
He will forever upon thee, set His crown

At the feet of Jesus
Joy will fragrance your woe
At the feet of Jesus
He will banish each foe

At the feet of Jesus
When you bow your head low
At the feet of Jesus
He answers yes, not no

Chorus
At the feet
At the feet
At the feet of the One who adores you
Lay your heart
Lay your fears
Lay your heavy burdens down
Just surrender and with grace, with love
Amazing grace, amazing love
He will forever upon thee, set His crown

Oh! At the feet of Jesus
