YOUR WILL IS MY DELIGHT


Echoing the psalmist,
I have often prayed this prayer,
“Here I am O Lord!
To do your will is my delight.
Send me! I will go
Wherever You command.”

Yet, when the moment,
Finally arrived to prove,
My prayer naught but hollow words,
I cried aloud and said,
“Not this I beg you Lord.
I do not want to go.”

But go I must. His will is clear,
Although it rends my soul,
To part with those who form,
The warp and weft, the threads that run
Across the fabric of my life.
For duty calls.

Harsh mistress she won't prove to be,
If sweetened with the leaven,
Of the love of Christ Himself,
And the prayer I long  have prayed,
Will finally ring true,

“Here I am O Lord!
To do your will is my delight.”

IN THE SHADOW OF LOVE




Walk in my shadow,
Find ‘neath its shade,
Peace and protection,
Till sun and moon fail.

I’ll be your shelter,
In the eye of the storm,
Under my wings,
You are safe from all harm.

Fear shall not stalk you,
Nor pestilence strike,
No arrow in daylight, 
Nor terror by night.

I promise to gather,
Each tear from your eye,
In grief and in sorrow,
I’ll stay by your side.

Angels will guard you,
They’re charged to dispense,
Showers of blessing,
And favors immense.

And after the course,
Of your life here has run,
I’ll give you a mansion,
In the realm of My Son.

JUST BECAUSE


Because I love You Jesus,
Grace overflows my soul,
You blot out my offenses,
Your Spirit makes me whole.

Because You love me Jesus,
In sorrow’s bitter scourge,
Your strength is mine to lean on,
And cleave to in life’s surge.

Because I love You Jesus,
I want to walk in truth,
To labor in Your vineyard,
And yield abundant fruit.

Because You love me Jesus,
The power to succeed,
Is mine because You will supply,
All the grace I need.

Because I love You Jesus,
In You my soul finds rest,
Your little sparrow is at home,
Nestled at Your breast.
