There is hope for the weary soul
In each struggle He’s with me
Jesus is my strong defender
And no better can there be
He brings hope to my weary soul!

There is peace for the weary soul
Jesus shields me with His peace
Jesus never will forsake me
His protection will not cease
He brings peace to my weary soul!

There is wealth for the weary soul
Worldly cares and wants have gone
Jesus left His home in heaven
And the glory of His throne
He brings wealth to my weary soul!

There is life for the weary soul
On Himself He took my sin
Jesus purchased my salvation
I’m eternally forgiven
He brings life to my weary soul!

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.”
[Isaiah 40:31]

Where Will I Be Then?

Where Will I Be Then?

~

God made us that we can never die
With a soul for all eternity
When I leave this life where will I be?
Where will I be then?

When this life ends where will I be then?
Lost for ever or with God in heaven?
For we can’t die and no longer be
God has made us for eternity.

~

God made us that we can never die
With a soul for all eternity
When I leave this life where will I be?
Where will I be then?

All have sinned but God has intervened
Through Christ’s death by faith we are redeemed.
Only Jesus is the way to heaven
When we trust Him we shall be forgiven.

~

God made us that we can never die
With a soul for all eternity
When I leave this life where will I be?
Where will I be then?

We must swallow all our sinful pride
And believe that for our sin Christ died.
All our goodness cannot earn God’s grace
Jesus is our only righteousness.

God made us that we can never die
With a soul for all eternity
When I leave this life where will I be?
Where will I be then?

~


“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
being justified freely by His grace through the redemption
that is in Christ Jesus.”
[Romans 3:23-24]

Watching And Waiting

We are getting ready
For Jesus’ soon return
To set up His Kingdom
For God’s will to be done.

We’re born of, His Spirit
And for Christ, our hearts yearn.
We’re watching and waiting
For our Lord to return!

~

In the Lamb’s Book of Life
Our names are written there
We make ourselves ready
As our hearts we prepare.

We’re born of, His Spirit
And for Christ, our hearts yearn.
We’re watching and waiting
For our Lord to return!

May We Grow Up In Christ

May We Grow Up In Christ

~

May we grow up in Christ so that we may be useful
May we shine in the darkness reflecting His light.
May we study His word to be strong in life’s battles
May we pray to be close to our Lord day and night.

May we hate all He hates that our lives may be holy
May we love all He loves to be more like our Lord.
May we alway be faithful and never deny Him
May we put Jesus first and trust only His word.

May we never want more than our Lord has provided.
May we live through each trial and still give Him praise.
May our lives every day show our faith in Christ Jesus.
May we live as He taught till the end of our days.

When The Whiskey Was Flowin’

When The Whiskey Was Flowin’

I think of the nights when the whiskey was flowin’
My problems dissolved in the dregs of my glass.
Depression would follow as sure as the mornin’
My conscience returned but each time it was worse.

My problem was me, and a really bad captain
Who kept me in debt so I couldn’t get free.
So why was I happy when he was controllin’
My time off at shore and my work time at sea?

I needed a change in my life, and my captain
A skipper called Jesus was looking for crew.
“He gives a new start and all debt He will pardon”
At first I thought this was too good to be true?!!

I left my old master and transferred to Jesus
He is a good captain and personal friend!
I have a new life and my debt He has cancelled
He promised to keep me forever, Amen!

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
[2 Corinthians 5:17]
