One On One


If I can just reach one heart,
through Jesus, in His Name,
Catch a tear before it falls,
soothe a little pain.
Watch a flower blossom,
A smile, some sun, some Joy.
Little things, but Giant,
to a love starved girl or boy.

If I can just hold one hand,
as Jesus holds my own.
When the world comes crashing in,
and nothing feels like home.
When everyone’s a stranger,
passing through and by.
One Hand is ever Faithful,
grab hold and learn to fly.

If I can just say one word,
To brighten up your day.
Not me, but from the Savior,
then this is all I pray.
One heart, one hand, one word of good,
against a world of sin.
One on one, the battle's won,
God's workmanship begins.

Angel Tears


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When all the world is hurting
and even angels cry,
I lift my heart to heaven,
To know the reason why.
I don’t pretend to understand,
God’s ways are not of man,
But I do know,
He loves us so,
and always,
Has a plan.

Nothing ever happens,
unless He wills it so.
Rest in Him, find Peace in Him.
Be Still, let God, Let go.
Drink in all the wonder,
Refocus on the good.
Everything will fall in place.
Exactly as it should.

Children of The Father,
Believe, Receive, in Grace.
Our God is ever Faithful,
To all who seek His Face.
Miracles are out there,
Healings every day.
Washed in Heaven’s Holy tears.
Love will find a way.

Elizabeth

Psalm 46:10,
'Be Still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.'

Just As I Am


I have permission,
Just to be me.
As God created,
All I can be.
Imperfect, and humble,
but that’s O. K
God’s work in progress,
He made me that way.

I have permission,
To see good in all.
God dusts me off,
Whenever I fall.
Sometimes in shreds,
but I think it’s fine.
Poured out, refilled,
With Sparkling New Wine.

I have permission,
by Grace and with Love.
To live every day,
Blessed from above.
Sunshine and birdsong,
Blossoms and streams,
Children and laughter,
Visions and Dreams.

God gives us permission.
to Love and to live.
Learn from it all,
See beyond, and forgive.
Paid for in full
by The Blood of the Lamb.
Jesus, who Loves me
Just as I am.

'And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.'

Count The Stars


Gonna hide away awhile,
Leave the world behind.
Pretend it isn’t out there,
Only Holy find.
Gentleness,
and sunshine
Sweet grass cooled with dew
Hummingbirds and butterflies.
Pretty things, of You.

Breezes blowing,
Birdsong.
Brooks of melted snow,
Back to You,
To be made new.
All of this,
Let go

Pray a while,
and stay awhile,
Out of all the madness
Simple things
That bless my heart.
Cleanse my soul,
From sadness.

Count the stars at midnight,
Watch the sun go down,
Hear the music in the breeze,
Glory all around.
Find some peace,
Reclaim joy,
Yours and mine to find.
Gonna hide away a while.
and leave this world behind.

Walking


Sometimes we have to let things go,
To let them fly back home.
Bent and bruised, for His Names Sake,
In a world that’s not my own.
We wonder why,
we ever try,
long to leave this place.
Another voice,
Stand strong , Rejoice.
I am still here,
with Grace.

Grace to soothe the wounded.
Grace to steep the flow.
Grace to gather up my sheep,
For all the world to know.
I am the Sheperd.
Holy One.
My lambs are mine to hold.
No height, or depth.
Life or death.
Will keep them from My fold.

The world will go on turning.
Tear down the hearts of men.
But Grace and Love, will overcome,
The sun still shines, Amen.
We live and learn.
Shine on , and yearn,
For a brighter, better day.
Hope lives on,
Fears are gone.
God will always find a way.

All Of You


When I am alone.
You are with me.
When I despair.
You are there
When I am lost
Lord, You find me.
Lift me,
to breathe in
clean air.

When I am weary.
You hold me.
When I am sad.
We can smile.
When I am broken
Remold me.
Hide me away for a while.

When I am afraid.
You are courage.
When I am weak.
You are strong.
When I am foolish
Your Wisdom abounds
keeping me,
where I belong.

Jesus, I love you,
Walk with me.
I know there is much yet to do.
Hold me and guide me
Stay right beside me
All of my strength is in You.

Anything good,
Anything pure,
Anything worthy or true.
I am a sinner.
A child,
A beginner.
Nothing of me.
All of You.

Lullaby


Sing to me sweet Jesus.
Lull me into sleep.
Let me hide beneath your wings,
where my soul doth keep.
Dream me to the ocean,
to breathe the salted air,
dip my toes into the sea,
breezes through my hair.
Dream me to the mountain tops,
where the eagles soar.
Dance with me,
through morning fields,
until I dance no more.
Dream me to my Fathers arms.
Dream me into Light.
Dream me into perfect Peace.
Rest my heart this night.
Elizabeth

Petals



Dust to dirt,
Hurt on hurt.
A flower picked too soon.
Petals torn,
Children born.
Pain and heartbreak strewn.

and Sunshine,
on the darkest day.
Blue sky,
in the rain.
Jesus,
Saviour of the world,
Hope ,
is born again.

The God of second chances,
Takes the petals one by one
Grafts them back to start again
Through the Healing of His Son.

Lovingly and gently,
Washed in Tears of Grace.
Each Rose will learn to blossom.
One day , to find it’s place.

Precious Jesus


Precious Jesus,
Hold me.
Throughout the coming storm.
Empower me and strengthen me,
For I am frayed and worn.
I’m not so good at standing firm,
My heart gets in the way.
Temper me with wisdom Lord
Give me words to say.

Precious Jesus,
Hold the lost.
Children of the night.
Keep them safe,
Bring them back,
Into Your cleansing light.

Precious Jesus,
wash us clean
All have gone astray,
Bring us back to honor you.
In all we do and say.
It isn’t always easy, and it isn’t always fair,
but Your word holds the answer,
to every heartfelt prayer.

Precious Jesus,
Teach the world,
A better way of living.
In Light and Love, and Righteousness.
Grace on Grace, forgiving.
Drench us in the blood of Christ,
In Jesus name, Shine through
Hold us all,
In Holy hands.
All Glory, Lord
To You.

This Day


This is the day that The Lord has made.
I will praise His Name.
Give my all to serve Him well,
through the storms and rain.
In the sunshine of my heart,
I can see Him smile,
and when I become weary,
rest in Him awhile.

This is the day that The Lord has made.
I can, I will, Rejoice.
Every day Hope finds it’s way,
through Love, God’s quiet voice.
Gently shining in His Light.
The Path of Joy in sorrow.
Rainbows softly shimmer down,
the promise of tomorrow.

This is the day The Lord has made.
Shower in His Grace.
Live each moment, full and rich.
Visions of His Face.
Search for Wisdom, in all things.
The simple, pure, and true.
Each day a page to read and turn,
written just for you.

So smile, Rejoice, this is the day.
Let go, let God, let be.
Wonder waits to be unwrapped.
Love runs sweet and free.
Dress your heart in scarlet threads,
glittering the Earth.
Laugh, and sing in Jesus’ Name.
and Live,
for all He’s worth.
