I Believe

I believe in Jesus and

the gospel of grace

It’s the light in this world and

gives strength in this race

I believe he’ll change hearts and

free us these chains

Bring us thru tears and

storms when it rains

I believe in God’s mercy and

His unfailing love

How He’s always beside me and

His guidance is from love

I believe in Jesus and

He’s faithful to forgive

How He changed my heart and

points me in the right direction to live

I believe in God’s Word and

how His Truth changes lives

It points us to right choices

where each believer can thrive

I believe in Jesus and

His unending reign

My home is in heaven

where there’s no tears and no pain

A Quarter Till Three

As I sit and think over coffee or over tea
It’s early in the morning a quarter till three
I ask God to help me with what to say
With words that encourage that will last through the day
I have to be reminded that it’s not about me
It’s about my Savior who hung on a tree
He extends grace that no man can provide
This is a message that I should not hide
God came to earth to walk as a man
He came to redeem us this was his plan
He committed no sin they said He must die
Unless you read His Word you’ll wonder why
He died on a cross and rose on the third day
To give us all life who follow His way
It is our sin that we must confess
His forgiveness is what we possess
Confess with you mouth believe in your heart
That Jesus Lord and you’ll have a new start
On the third day Jesus was raised
When you believe this you will be saved
He ascended to heaven to prepare for us a home
But before he left He didn’t leave us alone
His Spirit He left to be our guide
It is His Word we learn to abide
This is the good news that we must share
Please pass it along this is my prayer

Christ paid the price, in full it was paid
He hung on a cross, then laid in a grave

He was mercilessly beaten for all to see
Then hung high on a hill, nailed to a tree

He was the ransom for all, our ransom for sin
And the rebellion that we live in

He conquered death, in three days He was raised
He gives us life and for that He is praised

He went to hell to set captives free
He did this for them so in heaven they’ll be

His mercy is endless, Grace He provides
He is the Word, in Him we will abide

When He ascended to heaven, He didn’t leave us alone
He gave us His Spirit, our heart is His home

He’s the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End
He has captured my heart, now He lives within

When we are flooded with things that cause strife

Faith, Hope and Love are the cornerstones of life

Faith is being sure of what we Hope for

This is the Christian virtue that is at our core

Faith is being certain of what we can not see

Trusting in Christ to provide salvation for thee

Hope is knowing that Christ will come again

That will be the day when our troubles will surely end

Of all these the greatest is Love

Christ is the cornerstone sent from Heaven above

There was a man who hung on a cross

He therefore died for the lost

The sick He did heal

Before He ate His last meal

 

As a boy He started to teach

For Gods glory He did reach

 

His church He will build

Not even satan can steal

 

So when tempted to sin

Reach up for Jesus to win

 

You see heaven’s a real place

For all that finish the race

 

It’s not how fast or slow we run

Run into the Arms of the Son
