Bring Glory

May what I speak be filtered through Your grace;
May what I do show Your unfailing love.
May words and actions both satisfy Truth;
May mercy become my reason for life.
Not only hearing, but doing Your will
Allows Your Spirit to guide us through life.
All blessings of God are ours, forever,
More numerous than the sands on the beach.
To You alone be all glory, O Lord!
To You alone will we give accolades,
For You alone can claim to be worthy
And You, Lord, are faithfulness incarnate.
Because of Your faithfulness, truth, and love
It’s only fitting that we’d at least try
To live according to Your will, O Lord;
Through our minor struggles, bring You glory.

With Grateful Hearts

With grateful hearts, we come, O Lord,
With praises on our lips.
When listening ears
Erase our fears,
We'll hear Your voice of calm.

Oh, may we sit with You awhile
To gain serenity
Before we go
Into the world
To live our inner dreams.

End? Or Beginning?

Each “ending” is also a “beginning.”
Changing from old to the new grows our faith.
Clothed in His presence, to witness for Christ,
Brings His powerful mercy to others.

When something is ending, open your eyes.
Don’t be discouraged if you do not see.
Whatever your doubt, stand up to your fears;
When fears fall away, true faith can begin.
