SEEK GOD

 

My day has come where it's hard to cope.
My mind is searching where there is hope.
My heart does ache for perfect love.
So then my soul seeks God above.
My day goes bad and I'm feeling down.
My mind is lost from pacing around.
My heart beats fast in face of fear.
So then my soul seeks God who's near.
You healed my heart and cleansed my soul.
You gave me strength and made me whole.
You sent your spirit to guide me through.
You show your love in all you do.
My day is filled with trial and error.
My mind is cluttered with burdens I bear.
My heart is troubled when no one cares.
So then my soul seeks God who's there.
My day goes by with so much stress.
My mind is looking for peace and rest.
My heart is weary and hurting too.
So then my soul calls out to you.
You healed my heart and cleansed my soul.
You gave me strength and made me whole.
You sent your spirit to guide me through.
You show your love in all you do.

BROAD RIVER ROAD PRAYER

 

Down Broad River Road, I prayed to you.

That my burden was heavy, please help me through.

I called you Lord, to have mercy on me.

Help a wretched sinner, who's making this plea.

High above in heaven, you heard my cry.

You found me wandering and hurting inside.

You reached out in love and touched this soul.

By taking my life and making me whole.

Down Broad River Road, I prayed to you.

That my troubles never cease, what can I do.

It's so hard to bear, the problems that are there.

So I look to you and offer this prayer.

Help me overcome, the obstacles I face.

Guide me with your spirit, empowered by your grace.

You took my hand and helped me on the way.

Down a narrow path that led me to this day.

So any road I take, I can say a prayer.

I know in my heart, that you are there.

I can count on you, to be my guide.

Good times or bad, you're at my side.

MESSAGE FROM MY HEART

 

I'm writing you this note,

 even though it's too late to send.

When I could have written this note,

 way back then.

I could have written the words

 to say how much I care.

And find the words to say,

 that I'll always be there.

I could say to you,

 you're the best friend I know.

And send a card to say,

 that I will never let you go.

I wish I could go back in time,

 to do what I didn't do.

And say the things,

 like the words I LOVE YOU.

There were times I put off, 

on the words that I should say.

Until I find out it's too late,

 and you passed away.

I'm writing you this note,

 a message from my heart.

I wish I wrote this note,

 right from the start.

MY LITTLE PRAYER

 

It's a whole new day, so I look ahead.
I read the bible on what you said.
It helps me now in promises you made.
I know you're here to come to my aid.
It's a whole new day, so it's time to pray.
I call on you to lead the way.
Please cleanse my heart and heal my pain.
I make this plea in your holy name.
It's a whole new day, so I pray to you.
To bless me now in all I do.
In all my work, I ask you too.
To give me strength to make it through.
It's a whole new day, so I say this prayer.
I thank you Lord for being there.
You know my need and care for me.
That's why I love to pray to thee.

MY PRAYER AND SONG

 

I pray to you, I sing to you,
with all I have and do.
That you would show me a way,
where I can serve you today.
With your abounding love and care.
I know you're always there.
I believe your words is always true
To do the things you promised to do.
I pray to you, I sing to you,
with all I have and do.
That something good I can do today.
And you would bless me along the way.
With my open eyes and hands in bind.
With a lonely heart and peace to find.
With song and prayer to sing and say.
Oh God please help me today.

STARTING OVER

 

I feel the tension mounting,
 every second of every day.
The stress overwhelms me,
and nothing goes my way.
I lost my favorite job,
and my options are very few.
I lost my best friend,
what am I going to do?
Starting over was never easy, 
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
My bills keep piling,
and all my cupboards are bare.
I reached out to others,
but no one really cares.
I lost another car,
and all my possessions too.
Here I am starting over,
at the age of sixty-two
Starting over was never easy,
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
So I fix my eyes on Jesus,
I know he's always near.
He can take away my sorrows,
and cast away my fears.
I place my hope in Jesus,
even when life looks grim.
He promised to help me,
I know I can trust him.

I WILL REMEMBER YOU

 

So many days have come and gone.
But the memories of you is still strong.
From the first day when we just met.
To the last day I will never forget.
You're the most caring person I ever knew.
I will remember you.
I look through the photographs and see.
How wonderful it use to be.
All the things we use to do.
All the places we went to.
Our love for each other grew.
I will remember you.
Day and night I see your face.
Moments of love you can't erase.
We became best friends.
Our love seem to have no end.
Until God called you home. 
I will remember you.

OUR AWESOME GOD

 

God filled the darkness with a starry light.
He created the stars to glow at night.
He created the sun and the day had begun.
He created the earth to orbit the sun.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the land.
He filled it with trees, flowers and sand.
He filled the earth with plenty of water.
And all the fish he created right after.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the sky.
He filled it with all kinds of birds to fly.
He created all the animals one by one.
God saw it was good, but he wasn't done.
Till God said let us make ourselves a man.
He created all of us according to his plan.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

When almighty God spoke, this all came to be.
By his own words, he created this beauty.
So take a moment and look around and see.
OUR AWESOME GOD created it for you and me.

GOD'S OWN WORDS

 

I stand on the promises of your spoken word.
Etched in my mind are the bible verses I've heard.
I know in my heart that you hear my prayer.
I believe you love me and you'll always be there.
I study the very words that you promised to do.
I know and believe that your words is always true.
So I can read the bible in times of uncertainty.
Because the author is God and he is trustworthy.

PLAY IT FOR CJ

 

All the times you helped me.

All the times you shared.

All the things you did for me.

You showed you really cared.

My times with you I treasure,

more precious than real gold.

Those times we prayed together,

those memories I'll always hold.

My times with you were splendid,

I thank God every day.

Those memories keep me going,

they'll never fade away.

My times with you were special,

we were happy as can be.

Those times we ate together,

and also watched TV.

My times with you have ended,

it's so hard to say goodbye.

Till we meet again in heaven,

those memories will never die.

WE BELIEVE

 

There is hope, there is joy,
there's a reason to live.
There is love, there is peace,
that only he can give.
We have faith, we proclaim,
that Jesus is the one.
We are glad, we rejoice,
for the things he has done.
He's the best, he's the greatest,
he's the only one we need.
He is Jesus, he is Lord,
that's what we believe.
We will serve, we will worship,
we will thank the Lord every day.
We will sing, we will shout,
we will praise his holy name.
We will reach, we will teach,
we will preach the word of God.
That's our goal, that's our life,
that's the best thing we got.
