There’s A Love

1-1202055758tict orange rose


There’s a love that’s like no other.

It’s a love that’s from on high.
There’s none like it in this world,
the love of God for you and I.

Breaking barriers, building bridges,
reaching high and low alike,
it can overcome the darkness
with its penetrating light.

It’s a love that brings forgiveness
and will pardon every sin.
It is found in Christ the Saviour,
as we ask Him to come in.

It’s a love that says “You’re special”.
It’s a love that calls you “Friend”.
If you open up your heart, you’ll find
it’s a love that never ends.

You Made It This Far

Autumn morning Oct 06 2013_1014 (1)
You made it this far
though the road was rough,
though trials you faced
seemed more than enough.

Though some days were lonely
and all looked bleak,
you trusted the Saviour
to guide your feet.

At times when it seemed
you could go on no longer,
His word came through and
helped you to be stronger.

He was beside you,
the Star in your night;
so true and so faithful,
Whose burden is light.

He promised to be with you,
right to the end.
Keep trusting in Jesus,
Your Saviour and Friend!

Lowly King

nativity scene

 ~*~

He didn’t need to find a place
All decked with silver and gold,
Adorned with riches and splendour –
Too wonderful to behold.
~
He didn’t seek the praise of man
Or a life of fame and glory.
He came to earth as love, unveiled;
His life became a story.
~
The darkness of this world could not
Prevent His light, so holy.
From heaven, He came, the Prince of Peace;
His heart was meek and lowly.
~
The wise men saw a bright light shine
Announcing the birth of a king.
They knew the Babe was heaven-sent
And brought their gifts to Him.
~
Jesus, Saviour of all mankind ~
Gift from God above
The King of kings, new life would bring
To a world in need of love.
~
How wonderful! How precious
That God’s righteous, holy Son

Should come to show us how to live
And the people we could become!
~
All He seeks is a place within
Our hearts, where He may dwell
For Christ is the reason for Christmas ~
…The story we love to tell.

In this season, we love to retell and celebrate the
wonderful story of His birth and exalt His Name,
for He is the centre of our joy and rejoicing! Amen

When He Comes In

file181244230718 (by sssh221)

Purest love is the candle of gold
that burns in His heart for you.

As the morning sun arising
opens the door to a brand new day,
Christ – the Son of Righteousness –
makes darkness take flight
in surrender to His light ..
when He comes in.

He closed the chasm
that kept His love at bay,
through His blood,
shed to wash our sins away.

Suffering our pain, He gave His life
to bring hope again.

When He comes in
so comes grace
and love divine, the love we pine;

the kind that’s pure
and will endure.

Do embers of hope burn?
Does your soul yearn within?
Christ Jesus is the
Way in the wilderness,
Living Water in the desert.

He’ll make a way.
He’ll do a new thing.

Call on the Name of Jesus.
He’ll hear your cry.
Your tears He’ll dry –
Watch and see.

Your heart, once again, will sing –
when He comes in.

Again and Again

pexels-photo-243125.jpeg

Who wants to be a candle,
that shines in a lowly place?
Who wants to be in the shadows,
where nobody knows your face?
Ploughing behind the scenes –

and sowing seeds of love?
Such a heart is precious
to our heavenly Father above.

 Who will keep on giving
their best for no return,
to help someone keep living,
though long-lost love they yearn?
There are so many people

who may have been ignored,
who need to know that they are loved –
it’s precious to our Lord.

 While stars on high above us
in celestial realms do glow,
remember, it’s because of
dark surroundings that they show.
Now every soul is precious –

and needs to know we care.
When seeds of love have blown their way,
they’ll spread them everywhere.

 So let us not be weary
in doing well, dear friends.
The season yet will come if we
hold steadfast to the end.
As blossoms follow sunshine

and also showers of rain,
we’ll reap if we keep sowing
seeds of love – again and again.
