Jesus Said Follow Me!

~

Jesus leads and we will follow
All who know and love the Lord
From His path let us not wander
Trusting in God’s holy word.

Often we loose sight of Jesus
Leaderless we are so blind
All because we go our own way
Leaving Christ our Lord behind.

If we want His work to prosper
Jesus’ kingdom to abound
Jesus leads and we will follow
Not the other way around.

Jesus said:
“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”
[Luke 9:23]

Alive! Alive!

Alive! Alive!
From sin I am set free.
Praise God! Praise God!
The Saviour died for me.

I used to think I was alive
When living for myself
And never thought that happiness
Could come from someone else!

~

Alive! Alive!
Christ Jesus lives today.
Praise God! Praise God!
Christ took my sin away.

I used to think that happiness
Was doing what I liked
But soon realised that wasn’t true
When nothing turned out right!

~

Alive! Alive!
From sin I am set free.
Praise God! Praise God!
The Saviour died for me.

Some think they don’t believe in God
When actually they do.
They also know the way to God
I pray Christ saves them too!

~

Alive! Alive!
Christ Jesus lives today.
Praise God! Praise God!
Christ takes our sin away.

Jesus said to him,
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
[John 14:6]

Ask Anything!

Ask Anything!
© 2017 Tom D Blakely
~

Christ said to ask for anything
Yes, anything in prayer.
And anything means anything
Within our heart’s desire.
Let us not doubt the word of God
But simply take it in.
God’s word is truth that we can trust
That has the seal of heaven.

The natural man cannot prevail in prayer
The Holy Spirit gives us power.

~

When Jesus tells us anything
Trust God, His words are true.
And if we do not understand
The problem’s me and you.
Sometimes we don’t take time to pray
Or read the word of God.
Then take a verse from here or there
Which often causes doubt.

The natural man cannot prevail in prayer
The Holy Spirit gives us power.

~

Christ said to ask for anything
And that’s just what He meant.
These words are for those born again
For whom His blood was spent;
Disciples of the risen Lord
Who seek God’s glory first,
Who learn to pray in Jesus’ name
Receive all that they ask.

The natural man cannot prevail in prayer
The Holy Spirit gives us power…
The natural man cannot prevail in prayer
The Holy Spirit gives us power.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
[John 14:12-14]

Do Not Fear

Do Not Fear

~

When we feel overwhelmed
And we don’t understand
Yet we know to reach out
And hold onto Christ’s hand.
We will walk in His strength
For we know He is near
Then we hear Jesus whisper…
My child, do not fear.

In good times or bad
Christ is faithful and true
When we call out to Him
Peace our Lord will renew.
When we spend time in prayer
He will bless and will cheer
Then we hear Jesus whisper…
My child, do not fear.

~

When we’re sad and alone
And feel nobody cares
We cry out to our Lord
Who lets us know He’s there.
When we pour out our heart
He will dry every tear
Then we hear Jesus whisper…
My child, do not fear.

In good times or bad
Christ is faithful and true
When we call out to Him
Peace our Lord will renew.
When we spend time in prayer
He will bless and will cheer
Then we hear Jesus whisper…
My child, do not fear.

“Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

God’s Love Reached Me

God’s Love Reached Me

~

Without God’s grace my soul was so burdened
My sin was heavy and it kept me bound.
Each day it worsened till I was relieved
I came to Jesus and believed!


The love of God reached out to me
When Jesus died at Calvary
It was my sin that kept me bound
He took my sin and set me free!

~

When I’m away from God I’m so weary
Without His presence life is so dreary!
God overwhelms me with a love that thrills!
When Jesus speaks, my heart He fills! 


The love of God reached out to me
When Jesus died at Calvary
It was my sin that kept me bound
He took my sin and set me free!

~


“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
