He Cares For You

  

If waves of sadness flood your soul,
take courage friend.
When nothing seems to help console
it’s not the end.
The One Who holds your hand today
will be there tomorrow.
He’ll make the darkness light and He
will lift your sorrow.

When you feel that the prayers you pray
are just a token.
The Lord will still be listening to
the words unspoken.
His everlasting love for you
will never wane.
He longs to mend your broken heart.
He knows your pain.

Though time has swiftly moved along,
there’s hope anew.
The Lord will never let you go,
He cares for you.
When you are all alone, remember
He is there.
Reach out and call His precious Name
for He is near.

“O Jesus, precious Jesus – Lord
I need you now.
O let Your waves of peace flow over
me somehow.
I come just as I am for I know
You are Love.
My help comes from You Lord of earth
and heaven above.

O lift my soul that I may joy
in You again.
I’m trusting in You Lord, for You’re
my greatest Friend”

For Yesterday

file6331260680650

For yesterday ..
I thank You, Lord.

There were years that seemed
just like a dream.
There were life-changing scenes.
But I’ve come to know
that You allowed me to go
through that maze,
those difficult days,
You were there always.

You helped me grow,
You kept me strong –
like a tree amidst the storms.

You had hopes for me
when the future I couldn’t see.
When I despaired,
so misty was the view
until I saw You,
looking down from heaven –
showing You care.

Nothing compares with Your love.
You saw my heart and
picked me up.

I owe everything to You.
For all You’ve done for me,
I’m grateful.
Lord, I thank You.

In The Shadows

 

sunrise on the mountain

There in the shadows
you feel deep within;
there in the shadows,
just call upon Him.

There in the shadows
His light will shine bright,
taking your darkness
and giving you light.

There in the shadows
when no-one is near;
there in the shadows,
He’ll free you from fear.

There in the shadows
is Jesus the Lord,
with love everlasting
that He can afford.

Under the shadow
of His healing wings,
filled with His wonder
and joy you will sing.

There in the secret place
of the most High,
under His shadow
You’ll ever abide.
