MY GRIEVING HEART

 


My heart is still grieving,

for my friend who died.

I can't stop mourning,

even though I tried.

It's so hard to endure,

with each passing day.

In a time of sorrow,

that won't go away.

It feels like I died

but the pain is still alive.

I'll do anything I can,

just so I can survive.

Will my grieving heart heal,

it's hard to tell.

One thing I do know,

it hurts like hell.

Memories Of CJ

 


Those days are gone, those years still shine.

Those memories remain, for a friend of mine.

From the first day, when we just met.

To the last day, I will never forget.

All those years we spent together.

We were happy when life was better.

I often stop and think of my friend.

I ask my Savior why did it end?

Those times of fun, those times of laughs.

Those times of love, those days have passed.

Those days are gone, those years still shine.

Those memories remain, a close friend of mine.

Ballad For The lonely

 


Who can I call when I am feeling down.

Or share the time when no one is around.

Who can I love or lend a hand?

Or joke around and be there friend.

I live each day with no friend around.

Not seeing anyone but sun go down.

I keep on looking, I keep on smiling.

I  never give up but keep on trying.

Who do I know that I could see?

Someone who wants to be with me.

Where can I go that I could find.

Someone that can be a friend of mine.

I live each day with no friend around.

Not seeing anyone but sun go down.

I keep on looking, I keep on smiling.

I never give up but keep on trying.

ALONE

Feeling all alone and no one I can see.
Real friend I need, someone close to me.
I can think of many times I could use a friend.
Even those times when life seems to end.
Nothing I can do to change anything.
Despite all my pleas, I am lonely as can be.

THE SILENT CRY

 


I cry for love I never had,

even when I was a little boy.

I dream many times about love,

that would make life a joy.

There's many days I see that love,

and I ask myself why not me?

I spend those days all alone,

and no one to see.

Is there any life for me to live,

if there is no friend.

I say many times there isn't,

and I wish someone would come again.

I GO TO PRAY

 


I bow my head and I start to pray.

I ask the Lord to help me today.

I know he can help, I really believe.

I can call him for everything I need.

So every morning before I start.

I pray to the Lord with an open heart.

Then something happens, I can't explain.

I raise my voice and praise his name.

I get this feeling I need to stand.

I take this moment to raise my hand.

I feel his presence and I start to sing.

I thank you Lord for what you bring.

I pull out the bible and start to read.

The promise he made, he will always lead.

So each day I live, I hold on to this faith.

I can go on with every step I take.

ABC's on Salvation

 


All of us have sinned and gone astray.

But there is hope for us here today.

Call on our Savior Jesus when you pray

Do this now and he will lead the way.

Ever since the moment Jesus came.

Faith reminds us to believe his name.

God sent his Son to save you and me.

He died and rose again to set us free.

If there is one message we need to hear.

Jesus gave a promise to always be near

Keep this in mind whatever you do.

Leave it in his hands and he will help you.

More you know him, the message is clear.

No love is greater than what he did here.

On that wooden cross he showed his love.

Part of a plan that was from God above.

Query minds there can be no doubt.

Repent of your sins, there is no way out.

Salvation is found, so be sorry for your sin.

This moment now, your new life can begin.

Until he returns, let us not forget.

Victory is for those who are already set.

With Jesus help in the life he gave.

X is marked to those who are saved.

You know this message that you have heard.

Zealous hearts are needed to spread the word.

GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD

 

I often thank the Lord for watching me every day.
Never gone for a moment, even when I walk away.
I often thank the Lord for he heard my every prayer.
Every time I need him, he promised he'll be there.
I often thank the Lord that he heard my every cry.
He took away this shame that I always had inside.
I often thank the Lord for the life he gave for free.
Never judged me for my sins but he surely loves me.
I often thank the Lord for providing what I need today.
And each and every blessing that will come this way.

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.

CJ

 CJ




My heart aches every time I see.

The empty chair near the TV.

My best friend suddenly passed away.

Part of me died and I'm left astray.

I miss CJ, she was my best friend.

We had great times till the end.

I know God will call me home too.

Till we meet again, CJ, I LOVE YOU!

THE INNER LIGHT

 

There are four candles burning,

with a message for you to see.

You can learn the truth,

what life was meant to be.

The first candle proclaimed,

I am JOY that you need today.

But no one cares to listen,

so my flame has gone away.

The second candle was next,

I am PEACE to bring you harmony.

But they chose to hate instead,

so my flame has gone out of me.

The third candle said I am LOVE,

for those who are torn apart.

But they chose to ignore me,

I can no longer warm the heart.

I stood there in disbelief,

and wonder what this is about.

I didn't understand,

why the three flames would go out.

The fourth candle said there's time,

while my candle has some light.

I am HOPE that still flickers,

you can use me tonight.

So I took the candle of HOPE,

to light the other three.

The message was clear,

there's still hope inside of me.

When I lit each candle,

of JOY, PEACE, and LOVE.

I can get all three,

when I pray to GOD above.
