Lyrics

My Irish Lullably

Turn the key, it’s always open love
Lift your weary eyes unto God
Let him soothe you now, and bear all your pain
Come to The One who frees all
-
If Your heart, be heavy from burden
He’ll break all those shackles your in
Let Him cleanse you deep … and you lull you to sleep
Be washed, white as snow, in the fountain …
-
Leave all your sins, at the cross …
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm
-
Leave all your sins
At the cross … “A leanbh”
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall, like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm

Memories of Mom

Pressing on strings of Heaven dear
A love songs warmth imbues
I see you on the inside
In drops of royal dew
-
With this dawning soliloquy
My heart doth ache for you
I’m missing threads of yesteryear
In hues of green and blue
-
Sipping on tea at breakfast
Zion’s Country side in view
Resonant strides of jeans appear
Loves drapery of you
-
We walked the long and winding trails
Before you flew to rest
Up the joyful driveway
Invigorating quest
-
Toughness, courage, tenacity
Only Jesus best
The strength instilled inside me
The place in which to rest
-
God on every roadside
Growing up in simple faith
Hardship was no load to bear
Jesus Word saith
-
I Am is all I hear
His strength to scale each wall
‘Twas you my mother Who taught me ere
On Him that we must call
-
Kelly S Griswold
-
Thank you Lord, for my Mother
Who taught me … “The All”
On Him alone that we must call

Faith and surety

Faith and Surety
-
Tests and trials they may come
But they cannot ever harm
Just one glimpse of love from Thee
Will Whilst we wait
Hush all alarm
-
We are always safe my friend
Come what may or come what be …
On His loving word, we stand
In Faith and Surety
-
In His loving arms we rest…
Springing forth newness of life
To Glorify Thy Holy Name
In Strength and Power and might
-
Tests and trials they may come
But they cannot ever harm
Just one glimpse of love, from Thee
Will, while we wait
Hush all alarm
-
We are always safe, my friend
Come what may, or come what be …
On His loving word, we stand
In Faith and Surety

Divine Mercy

I’ve sailed for miles in this creaky boat
From pier to pier and out to sea
His Divine and Loving Mercy donned
Saving me unceasingly
I hear the wind and water sing
With laps that rocks and hardness bring
Beating balanced beams with prayer
Reaping blessings fodder fare
Pouring down from Christ The Lord
The oil of joy for mourning bare
Gluing of the seams to float
By His graceful pardoning
This truth that truly frees my soul
Sets my rudder guides my row
Once I grasped the letting go
All is calm, and stable here

-
Divine Loving Mercy …
Flowing in the water …
Float you to a restful sleep …

The Battle Within

Fighting many battles
Your just beginning to know
The war has long been over
The battle has been won

No matter what the trespass
No matter what the sin
You’re new life in Jesus
Has just begun within

What a joyful sound you’ll hear
When His river flows within
When you grasp that it was finished
When you trust and let Him in

No matter what the trespass
No matter what the sin
You’re new life in Jesus
Has just begun within

Filled with faith and hope and love
All pain and fears released
Holy Spirit now indwelt
Calmly rest in peace

No matter what the trespass
No matter what the sin
You’re new life in Jesus
Has just begun within

Day by day refined
Closer to the Saviour
All because of Christ The Lord
In victory, yeah the winner

You’ve fought too many battles
Now you really know
The war has long been over
Many years ago

Words by Nancy Sampson, Music by Kelly Sampson Griswold

My Bicycle

Lining rooftops high and low
Like dominoes falling icicles
Past my own sight dim and low
Peddling lightning on bicycle

And I’m gonna stay… In love
Mercy, mercy me
I’m gonna stay… in love
His beacon over me
-
I don’t want to cry … no more
Faith revived and energized
I’ve died a million times for fear
Tired of being … Paralyzed

Chorus
-
Baseball cards in rhythm song
Wound up tight elastic drum
Inside spokes, the harp plays on
Easing, soothing, childlike hum

Chorus
-

Safe in sight, in God’s mind eye
Beyond my routes capacity
Angels on my shoulders high
With Jesus setting my soul free
-
And I’m gonna stay … In love
Mercy me mercy me
I’m gonna stay in love
His beacon over me

The Prize

Sing aloud His praises child
Feel your heart grow light
Like a quilt encompassing
When faith regards the night
-
Oh what troubles fade away
When nothing matters more
When eye upon the prize not storm
When Jesus leads the day

Truth and Confidence (Irish Folk song)

Tip toe slowly through the grass
Footprints, little lassie
Tread aware … And while you go
Go lightly … lightly low.
-
And where you are, you lovely
Tender hearted … True
Know, you know … just what you know
Tis treasure, in your glow.
-
Tip toe slowly through the grass
Footprints, little lassie
Tread aware, and while you go
Go lightly, … lightly low
-
Be true to yourself, within the dance
Your face, your smile, Gods Countenance
Know you know, just what you know
The treasure of Your Confidence

Truth and Confidence

Running Into You

Running into You
Running for the streams
Finding You, I’m quenched
My lips the fertile seed
-
My wants have disappeared
There is nothing except You
Nothing that I need
Beyond my yearning dreams …
-
Your love has captured me
Cleansed all the blackened coal
Hence all Your love it floods my soul
Your love … has set me free …

Your Holy Spirit fills my heart
Your love has set me free k

Strength

Smile oh Christian, beaten down
In your beauty, stand up tall
Know you know, you need not frown
God is watching judging all
-
Smile oh Christian, don’t you cry
Christian, hold your head up high
For the one who beats your brow
Shall be one to push the plow
-
Holding forty thousand pounds
Holding forty thousand pounds
Holding forty thousand pounds
Holding forty thousand pounds
-
Smile oh Christian we are one
And together, we will run
Through the forests and the trees
To the golden fields, with ease
-
Holding forty thousand pounds
Like a feather in the breeze
Holding forty thousand pounds
Like a starling in the feis
