My First Song

When I close my eyes, it’s then I see.  Just beyond my senses, I’m aware.  Silence calms my heart and mind with Peace.  Breathing in Your presence, and I’m there.

Chorus:  This is the place where I feel safe, keeping very near to You.  My soul is filled with joy and praise, hidden in Your Secret place.

Resting in Your Love, transforming me, more and more like You, I long to be.  Time apart with You, alone in prayer.  Strengthened by Your presence, and I’m there.

Chorus:  This is the place where I feel safe, keeping very near to You.  My soul is filled with joy and praise, hidden in Your Secret place.

No voice no word need to convey, as I wait with You I know.  You’re here in me, You’re everywhere.  Conscious of Your presence and I’m there.

A Tribute to Lancey

He’s gone, I heard her say,

and my hope of reconciliation died that day.

Now he knows you were sorry.

Yes, maybe now he knows, as I wiped my tears away.

I really let him down,

and now it’s too late. If only I could hit replay:

Don’t listen to people.

If a religion misses Love, turn the other way.

God’s Love is Impartial.

I was told, don’t go, because the Rodeo was Gay?

We never spoke again.

What if Love would have been the voice I chose to obey?

They had me so confused.

Please let my mistake help someone avoid this someday.

Of course I should have gone!

Upsetting religious people was Jesus’ way.

God’s Love is Eternal.

Choose Love every time, every choice you make, everyday.

I Love you dear Lancey,

your memory lives in my heart, until forever,

Kay

To the Tune of “Deck the Halls”

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,

fa la la la la, la la la la

’tis the season to be jolly,

fa la la la la, la la la la

Does it ever make you wonder,

fa la la la la la, la la la

why we decorate trees wreaths?

fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Oh, I grew up adoring Santa,

fa la la la la, la la la la

 I prayed for gifts on Christmas day.

fa la la la la la, la la la

  One day I sang, “Oh Christmas Tree,”

and pondered why is this okay?

 Finally I Googled, Christmas,

Constantine, 325 A.D.

I assumed the change was harmless,

until I read Proverbs 30:6.

Now every body knows of Christmas,

 not our Creator’s Holy, (Set Apart) days.

His birth, death and Resurrection,

fulfilled on His Appointed days!

“Passover,” and “Unleavened Bread,”

His blood was shed, He died Thursday.

Three days later, right on First Fruits,

He rose just like He said He would.

At “Feast of Weeks” He sent His Spirit,

 fulfilling four of His Seven Feasts.

Fa la la la la, la la la la

Songs

Joyfully 

“I will joyfully anticipate every day of my life.  Knowing You’re in control of everything, gives us Peace when there’s strife.”

I’ll trust in You and You alone, when the outcome appears unknown.

Your thoughts and ways are far above my own.  May Your perfect work in me be shown.

“I will joyfully anticipate ever day of my life.  Knowing You’re in control of everything, gives us Peace when there’s strife.”

Your beauty lives in everyday.  Every bad thing will pass away.

You calm my fear as I obey, I will praise You, come what may.

“I will joyfully anticipate every day of my life.  Knowing You’re in control of everything gives us Peace when there’s strife.”

Near the Goal (Psalm 27:14)

Your still small voice, my listening ear, I wait for You to speak.  Courage is mine, You’re by my side, renewed by You as I grow weak.
(Chorus)
I’m never past the breaking point.  Resting in Your power.  All things becoming possible.  Trusting to the final hour.

Many run the same long stretch, with bravest hearts they try.  So near the goal their courage fails, not hearing heavens cry.

(Repeat Chorus)

God Most High 

Oh God (El) most High, (Elyone) You have sent me a song.
All creation sings along, Oh Most High!

In the morning, as the birds each sing their praise.  My heart soaks in Your glory.  Waiting here with You I am so blessed.  Your presence overwhelms me.

Oh God Most High, You have sent me a song.
All creation sings along, Oh Most High!

Like a Light, You reveal to me within.  My own righteousness is sin.  Lead me in the Way that leads to Life, in the Oneness of Your Spirit.

I choose You

I choose You,
I choose You Y’hushua.
I choose truth, I choose Your Love.
I choose you.
I choose you.
You are King of the Universe.
The Creator of everything.
I choose You.
I choose You and You have chosen me,
it took me way too long to see, now-
I choose You.
I choose You, with each breath that I pray.
I choose You in my thoughts through the day.
I choose You.
I choose You when I’ve been wrong,
I choose to humbly sing this song,-
I choose You.

The Rock

You’ve set my feet upon The Rock, (Y’shua)
Lifted me high as I let go.
My fears released, by Your Great Love,
all this so I would finally know.

There’s nothing more solid than the rock beneath my feet.
You are my Savior, my Life-line, You delivered me from deceit.
I’ve been rescued from the lies, You are the Truth for all to see.
My firm foundation is The Rock, You are my Peace and Security.

My Love Song

Love is all we need, more than the breath we breathe.
It’s Love that reconciles us back to the One who first loved us.
Love is who He is, Merciful and Righteous.
Love’s the Light of Truth, that gentle guides us by our hope.
Love is all that’s good, mankind misunderstood.
Love,  although Unseen, it has been written on our hearts.
Love is what prevails, it’s never-ending, and never fails.
It’s Love that gives us joy and still, calm, Peace a midst the storm.
Love is self-control, it heals and makes us whole.
Love is an unassuming childlike faith that has no pride.
Love calls us to rest, it’s the object of our quest.
Love turns our sin and death into new Life and Victory.
Love can cast out fear, it’s His will made very clear.
Love gives us the strength to overcome and humbly obey.
Love, that still small voice, has given us a choice.
It’s Love that sanctifies us, by His Life transforming grace.
Loves long-suffering, so patiently enduring.
Love, the Author and the Source Love, Who He Himself is Love.

Learning to Listen

Listen, to the voice that speaks in silence.
Listen, Love doesn’t need to make a sound.
Trust Him, surrounded by the darkness.
Trust Him, and when you do He will be found.

(Chorus) Open our eyes, to trust what we can’t see, to know Reality, You’re everywhere, and everything.  Oh, Give us ears, the kind that recognize, the leading of Your voice, showing us the Way back to Life.

Keep us in Your Peace…wrap us in your Love, let us learn to treasure Your Word and seek.

You Are

“You are, You are here, You are, drawing us near, You are, You are here, You are, becoming more clear, You are.”

Blessed are you Father  Song in process

Blessed are you, Father, King of the Universe.

Only in Your Love is this absence of fear.

The Faithful and True, The Alef and Tov, The First and Last.

And who are we, that You have loved us, even before we knew You?

You ask so little, so why do we doubt?

When we believe and obey, we find You are The only Way out.

King of Kings,  you have made us to crave.

But our desires that entice, are counterfeits that don’t save.

You ask so little, so why do we doubt?

When we believe and obey, we find You are The only Way out.

You’re Unseen Spirit delights us with Joy.

Everlasting and Unfailing, a Love nothing can destroy.

Our Father, You inhabit our praise.

No one can comprehend the height of Your Ways.

You are Yahovah, and Your Truth sets us free, make us all You created us to be 🙂

Slow Down

Slow down, slow down, my peace is right here waiting.

Slow down, slow down, return your thoughts to Me.

Slow down, slow down, my Love is always with you.

Slow down, slow down, return your thoughts to Me.

Thank You For Your Love

Nature’s Song

Spring is a reminder of Your message.
Our hope is in the joy of this new life.
Weary though the winter month have made us.
Each season without words can testify.

chorus
Your thoughts of beauty in a flower;
Unseen You make Yourself known.
Nature  revealing Your Great power.
Evident to all, Your Word is shown.

Summer yields the fullness of Your harvest.
There’s laughter in the air, warmth and relief.
but surely as the coolness turns to Autumn,

still there’s hope of Life in every fallen leaf.

repeat chorus

Magnify

There’s a place in my heart,
in my inner most being.
Where the overflow of my love,
turns to singing.

My soul magnifies Your love.
I rejoice to my Father above.
Humble and ready to serve,
let me show the world Your great Love.

Your Joy is my strength,
You give Peace as we struggle.  When our minds set on You,  it’s Your Way we will follow.

(repeat chorus)

You have taught me Your Love,
through Your eyes I shall see them.  The hungry, the needy. it’s You when I feed them.

Morning Stillness

With my comfort tossed aside,
I felt the stillness of the night.
These peaceful treasured moments,
just before the mornings light.
The trees seemed almost frozen,
the water looked like glass,
surrounded by the silence,
and twilight began my class.
I joined by standing quietly,
in awe too deep to speak.
Oh the lessons I’ve been learning
as You teach me how to seek.
In quietness and stillness
You renew us with Your Strength.
Acknowledging Your Sovereignty
for just this moments length.
Magnificent Creator,
only You know what’s ahead.
I thank You now for rousing me
from that warm and cozy bed.
How many moments have I missed
spending solitude with You?
Have I made myself the god,
each day just rushing through?

Now I Know, there’s nothing Greater,

even death You can destroy.

But in this morning stillness

I find Your Peace and fullness of Joy.

Our Creator Has Made Himself Plain to See, Romans 1:19

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse.   Romans 1:20

Our Hope in The Season’s 

Spring is a reminder of Your promise,
 for those who share the joy of Your New Life.
Weary though the winter months have made us,
each season without words can testify.
chorus
Your thoughts of beauty in the flower;
Unseen You make Yourself known.
All Creation reveals Your Power,
You’re evident to all,  by what You’ve shown.
 Summer yields the fullness of Your harvest.
Warmth is in the air, we play and sing.
but surely as the coolness turns to Autumn,
the falling leaves return again in Spring.
repeat chorus

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.”

Love

Love
 
A word like no other, it is said to be even greater than faith and hope.
Love is higher, deeper, longer and wider than we are able to comprehend.
Love is awesome, boundless, changeless, delightful, eternal, faithful, glorious, generous, gracious, healing, immaterial, immeasurable, immense, immortal, incomparable, incomprehensible, indescribable, ineffable, infinite, invincible, invisible, irresistible, life giving, majestic, magnificent, marvelous, mysterious, radiant, splendid, sufficient, sweet, terrifying, truthful, uncontainable, unfathomable, unchanging and unsearchable.  You get the picture, it extends far beyond the limits of our finite imagination.
Every heart desires this kind of love, it’s been written in our innermost being, its recognized by every tribe, language, people and nation. We marry for love, we live for love; some have even died for love.  But this kind of love is not human love, its supernatural love.  Similar to a mother’s love for her unborn child, one that loves without any reason or return.  Supernatural love is even greater, it loves its enemies, prays for those who persecute, returns kindness for insult and  gives two when forced to give one.  Love covers over all wrongs.
The spiritual fruit of this love is affection (friendliness), charity (generosity), and benevolence (goodwill toward all men).
Love comforts, heals, breathes new life, gives us hope, conquers fear, and teaches us to care for others. Love is unity, compassion, it helps bear one another’s burdens (difficulties), and it’s selfless. Love makes us able to forgive; it’s humble (unassuming) and meek (nice). It’s childlike, it gives grace and mercy, it brings joy (gladness of heart) and strength, it never fails (gives up) or forsakes (leaves), it’s faithful (true), just (fair) pure (holy), eternal, never-changing, it’s peace (tranquil, calm), it’s goodness, it’s faithfulness, and gentleness. It’s patient (long-suffering), it’s kind (nice), and it does not envy or boast. It’s not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on it’s own way. It’s not irritable or resentful. It’s not excited about wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
Love is the Kingdom of God; it is His will for earth as it is in heaven.  Love is Truth; it’s the salt and light of the world.  Love is wisdom, righteous and pure. Love sanctifies and redeems us. Love reconciles us to God, Who is the true meaning of the word love.  He is the author and the source of all Love.
“He who does not love has not become acquainted with God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:8
Love’s Song

Love is all we need, more than the breath we breathe.

It’s Love that reconciles us back to the One who first loved us.

Love is who He is, Holy, Pure and Righteous.

Love’s the way of truth and life, a light that gives us hope.
Love is all that’s good, His world misunderstood.
Love, although unseen, it has been written on each heart.
Love is what prevails, it’s never-ending, and never fails.
 Love that gives us joy, that still calm peace within the storm.
Love gives us self-control, it heals and makes us whole.
Love, the unassuming childlike faith that has no pride.
His Love calls us to rest, it’s the object of our quest.
  Love has turned our sin and death to life and victory.
 It’s Love that cast out fear, His will made very clear.
Love gives us His own strength and power as we humbly obey.
Love’s that still small voice, He’s given us a choice.
It’s Love that sanctifies us by the mercy of His grace.
Love’s long-suffering, so patiently enduring.
Love, the Author and the Source of love.  Who He Himself is Love.
