His Perfect Love Turns The Tide

“And we know, All things work together, for the good, for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28

All that we endure
Has a purpose and a time
For growing perseverance
With Christ’s power deep inside

Sometimes, we don’t see clearly
In our feeble finite mind
The glass is only dimly lit
But it need not ever bind

Holy Spirit lead us
On Hope’s high ground, we bide
Jesus strength, that conquers all
Surely, turns the tide

Jesus Softer Than The Falling Rain

“Jesus love” “Softer than the falling rain”
The healing rains

Precious there, a broken heart
Ne’r a weakness to impart
Tis strength disguised, in humble gates
Artful waves of streaming tears
With healing wisdom, as it waits
Learns to lose, because of love
Softer than the falling rain
True love gains and lives again
Where new dreams doth emerge and call
Fills the hollows up with grace
The island stands not merely lone
When water all around it’s shores
Keeps it buffered for a time
Until the island meets it’s form
Where substance of our faith is born

Lord, You Are My Everything

I’m number one in God’s book.
Number one in His heart
To Jesus,
I’m everything

My heart was tired and hungry
But Jesus you fed me
By Your Stripes
Now I am healed

I need nothing but You, dear Lord
The Creator of all things, seen and unseen
You lived and died to give me new life
New peace for eternity

And all the pretty little things
of this world
They whither, they fade
and they break
They are just the icing …
The snowcap on the mountain
But Jesus, You are cake

Jesus … You are …
Jesus … You are
Jesus You are
My everything
