Forgive me Lord

Forgive me Lord for sins long past,
and those for which I haven't asked.
Forgive me when I neglect to pray;
instead, desiring my own way.

Forgive the many times I've lied,
and covered up my sins with pride.
Forgive my failures, great and small,
and even those I don't recall.

Cleanse my soul from head to toe.
Through everyday help me to know-
You're the Savior of every sin,
every sin that has ever been.

Composing my Soul

My eyes are not haughty,
  my heart is not proud.
I'll shun all things worldly, 
  confusing and loud. 

May I learn to rest only
  in God's loving grace,
composing my soul in
  His warmest embrace. 

May we all hope in God,
  both now and forever,
through triumph, trials, 
  and every endeavor.

(based on Psalm 131)

He's unbelievably faithful
  and yet still I believe.
He's unbelievably generous,
  yet still I receive.

He's unbelievably gracious,
  even when I am not.
He's unbelievably caring,
  when I'm most distraught.

He's always near and loving,
  in times of greatest grief.
Lord, You know I do believe,
  but help my unbelief.

One Act of Love

 If each day were distinguished
  by at least one act of love,
we might find that over time
  we're graced from up above.. 

Loving acts could multiply,
  til all we say and do, 
born in the love I'm speaking of,
  in God's own point of view.

God is loving and always kind,
  so we should act the same-
start out with one, always done
  in love and in His name.

You, He'll Never Forget

Our Lord loves like no other
  and you, He'll never forget,
so trust in Him, my brother,
  for He hasn't failed us yet.

As the world turns, it may fall,
  but this one truth I know -
the very One who made it all,
  will never let us go.

Walking with Jesus

Sit at the feet of Jesus,
  hear what He has to say,
then keep yourselves in His love
  by reminding yourself all day..

That you are always welcome
  to return and sit at His feet,
to shed your fears, share your tears,
  and bask in communion sweet.

Walk in the steps of Jesus,
  follow wherever he goes,
the path may be a hard one my friend,
  with few highs and too many lows..

Just know, He'll never leave you,
  He'll walk with you step by step.
On each road, He'll lighten your load,
  saving each tear that you've wept.

Stand in the truth of Jesus,
  hide His Words in your heart,
think of them throughout the day,
  even when things fall apart..

His Words give life, love and light-
  without them we cannot stand.
So be assured by His Holy Word,
  and walk with Him hand in hand.

Dawn of a Misty Morning

In the dawn of a misty morning, 
  I sense a still small voice within, 
with an eye of infinite tenderness, 
  watching over me once again. 

Of this I'm sure, He's always there
  with hand to guide, to love and care,
but this day is unlike the others
  or maybe I'm now more aware? 

His love's magnified in my soul, 
  a nearness I've not felt in years.
He's drawing me close despite myself,
  in the joyful rain of my tears. 

His love follows throughout the day,
  singing over me through the night.
I do not know why He loves me so, 
  but I'll bask in His tender delight.

Forgive me Lord

Forgive me Lord for sins long past, and those for which I haven't asked. Forgive me when I neglect to pray; instead, desiring my own way...
