Oh Lord, Come To Me.

Oh, Lord, come to me
Holy Spirit, help me see
All the gifts that You gave me
Are blessings straight from Heaven.

Every day please touch my head
You know what will lie ahead
Just give me my Daily Bread
My blessing straight from Heaven.

My future rests within Your hands
Here at home, or in foreign lands
Your gifts always wrapped in loving bands
More blessings, straight from Heaven.

Oh, my Lord, come down to me
Holy Spirit help me see
That my life is of use to Thee
And blesses someone bound for Heaven.

Lean On Me.

Psalm 139:9 & 10 "If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me."

Lean On Me.

I have given you a brand new day
Can’t you face it?
Lean on Me.

Do you feel forgotten sometimes?
Do you feel alone?
Lean on Me.

Have your cares piled up on you?
You can’t see a way through?
Lean on Me.

Have you lost hope in your future?
Are dark mists now blinding you?
Trust in Me.

Do you want to make a difference
In someone else’s life today?
Follow Me.

Will you help someone like you?
Help Me show them what to do?
Walk with Me.

I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who calls you by name, am the God of Israel." Isaiah 45:2,3...

Make Me Beautiful

Make something beautiful of me Lord
Use a little of the sun
Because the sun is bright and warm
And it’s where folk like to come.

Then perhaps a little sky
Transparent, clear and true
So when others turn to look at me
They see right through to You.

The glow of the moon to shine through the gloom
Dispelling darkness for those burdened too
Please attach a few stars to show where You are
So my journey will lead Me to You

Make my mind just like Yours Holy and pure
Purposed to do Your will
I’d like rock in my feet so I don’t slip as I seek
The next step on this journey uphill.

Then colour me faithful, loving and true
A child of my Father above
Who will faithfully tell, ‘live for God, do His will
And He’ll colour you, too, with His love.’
