QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

 

OH, LIGHT OF MY SALVATION,

HOW WILL I HONOR YOU?

OH GOD OF ALL CREATION,

HOW DO YOU KNOW I’M TRUE?

OH, MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL,

HOW DO YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU,

WHILE ALL MY CHRISTIAN WALK,

I SEEM TO PUSH YOU AND TO SHOVE YOU?

I SEEM TO TAKE THE LAWS YOU WROTE,

AND TURN THEM ALL AROUND.

I SEEM TO TAKE THE WORDS YOU SAY,

AND CAST THEM ON THE GROUND.

DO OTHER CHRISTIANS DO THESE THINGS,

OR AM I ALL ALONE?

DO TRUE BELIEVERS DO THIS,

DO THEY GRUNT, COMPLAIN AND GROAN?

SOMETIMES I GET SO DARN DEPRESSED,

UNHAPPY WITH MYSELF.

SOMETIMES I’D LIKE TO JUST GIVE UP,

TO PUT YOU ON THE SHELF.

IT’S YOU THAT WORKS INSIDE ME THEN,

YOU TELL ME THAT I’M WRONG.

THEN YOU TRY TO CHEER ME UP,

YOU GIVE ME A NEW SONG.

THEN YOU TELL ME THAT SOME SIN,

WILL HAPPEN IN THIS LIFE.

THEN YOU SAY YOU DIED TO KILL

SINS STAIN AFFECT AND STRIFE.

THEN YOU SAY, THAT WHEN I SHOVED,

YOU TURNED THE OTHER CHEEK.

YOU TELL ME THEN, YOU UNDERSTAND,

THE TIMES WHEN I AM WEAK.

YOU REAFFIRM OUR COVENANT,

WITH JOY YOU CALL ME SON.

I’LL LOVE YOU NOW AND EVERMORE,

MY HOLY RIGHTEOUS ONE.

REMEMBER THE WORKS
OF THE LORD

 

YESHUA, MY SAVIOR, LORD AND KING,

TO HIM I OWE MY EVERYTHING.

HE GIVES ME NEW WINE AND BREAD FROM ON HIGH,

HE GRANTS A NEW LIFE THAT NO MONEY CAN BUY.

HE GRANTS ME A PEACE THAT THE WORLD CANNOT KNOW,

HE COMFORTS IN TIMES OF TROUBLE AND WOE.

HE PICKS ME UP WHEN I HAVE STUMBLED,

HE BUILDS ME UP WHEN I HAVE CRUMBLED.

HE MAKES ME WALK ON THE PATH THAT IS RIGHT,

HE’S THE LIGHT ON THE PATH WHEN DAY TURNS TO NIGHT.

HE IS FAITHFUL TO SHOW ME WHEN I SIN,

HE USES HIS SPIRIT, MY HEART HAS WITHIN.

REMEMBER THESE THINGS MY HEART AND BE GLAD,

JUST THINK ON THESE THINGS AND YOU WON’T BE SAD.

HIS GOODNESS AND KINDNESS, NO PEN CAN RECORD,

HE’S KING, HE’S MESSIAH, YESHUA OUR LORD.

THE LORD IS FAITHFUL

 

THE LORD SAVED ME WHEN I WAS YET A SINNER,

AND HE BROUGHT ME UP IN HIS WAYS.

HE LED ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,

AND PERFORMED MIGHTY MIRACLES IN MY LIFE.

AFTER THE LORD BLESSED ME IN ALL THESE THINGS,

I REBELLED AGAINST HIM.

A SIN OF MY YOUTH VEXED MY SOUL. I COMMITTED UNRIGHTEOUS ACTS,

IN SECRET FEARING THAT THE LORD WOULD SEE ME.

HOW FOOLISH WAS I TO THINK THAT I COULD HIDE,

 FROM THE MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.

MY FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS.

YOU ARE TRULY MY COMFORTER.

MY KING, YOU DID NOT DESERT ME IN MY TIME OF REBELLION.

YOU HAVE WELCOMED ME INTO YOUR COURTS,

AND YOU SAY THAT YOU LOVE ME.

IT IS RIGHTLY SO THAT YOUR NAME WILL BE PRAISED,

THROUGHOUT ALL OF ETERNITY, AMEN.

THE MESSIANIC CALL

 

HEAR WHAT MESSIAH HAS TO SAY,

SOON I AM COMING TO TAKE YOU AWAY.

YOU’RE MY BRIDE DRESSED IN WHITE,

YOU’RE MY GREATEST DESIRE,

I’M REFINING YOU WITH MY SPIRIT OF HOLY FIRE.

I SHALL TAKE YOU AWAY TO MY CITY ON HIGH,

WHERE MY PRAISES THE HEAVENLY ANGELS DO CRY.

YOU’RE MY LOVE, YOU’RE MY BRIDE,

YOU’RE MY GREATEST DELIGHT,

STAND READY, I COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT.

THE FOLLY OF MODERN MAN

 

IT IS SO PLEASING TO GIVE THANKS TO GOD,
TO WORSHIP GOD OUR MAKER.

THE PRIDEFUL SAY ” WE ARE GOD,
WE WILL WORSHIP OUR OWN WORKS “.

THE LORD LAMENTS ON HIS THRONE.
HE WEEPS OVER THEIR FOLLY.

EVEN SO, HE IS GRACIOUS TO ALLOW THEM
TO BELIEVE THEIR LIE AND PERMITS THEIR FOLLY.

THE RIGHTEOUS TRUST IN GOD
AS THE CLAY TRUSTS IN THE POTTER.

JUST AS THE CLAY IS ONLY A LUMP OF DIRT,
SO A MAN IS NOTHING WITHOUT GOD.

THE CLAY IS MOLDABLE WHILE THE PRIDEFUL MAN IS NOT.

Yeshua

YESHUA

 

YESHUA IS THE ONE I LOVE,

HIS TRUTH SHINES ON ME FROM ABOVE.

WITH RADIANT LIGHT THAT NEVER ENDS,

HE MAKES THE PARDONS AND AMENDS.

NOW FATHER GOD CAN LOOK ON ME,

AND SEE ME HAPPY, BLEST AND FREE.

ONE DAY I’LL GET TO SEE HIS FACE,

THE KING WHO DIED AND TOOK MY PLACE,

WHO SUFFERED TORTURE, MALICE, SCORN,

SO THAT ALL MEN CAN BE REBORN.

THAT DAY I’LL BOW AND WORSHIP HIM,

THEN ALL PAST CARES WILL SEEM SO DIM.

I’LL PRAISE THE KING OF ALL CREATION,

THE ETERNAL HOPE OF MY SALVATION.
