A LOVING LORD
He has a loving Eye, that never sleeps,
Our precious Jesus does tenderly keep!
He watches over us, each day and night,
No matter our trouble, no matter our plight.
He has a loving Ear, that never turns away,
Wide open, to hear our prayers always!
He willingly waits for His children to come,
Then sends us His love, comfort, and wisdom!
He has a loving Arm, that is never weary,
He wants to help us, our load to help us carry.
He picks us up when we stumble and fall,
Our loving Lord is at our beck and call!
He has a loving Heart, gentle and warm,
Helping us thru’ life’s turbulent storms!
Care, concern, compassion, and forgiving too,
Such tremendous love, blesses me and you!

What true love sees is a mystery,
God’s love sent His Son, to you and me!
Whosoever in Him does believe,
Eternal life in Heav’n will receive!
A deep mystery, is God’s true love,
Indeed a blessing, from Heav’n above!
In spite of all the times we do fall,
He’s always there, every time we call!
What true love sees is a mystery,
Never changing, in all eternity!
Our faith in Jesus, makes us God’s child,
And with the Father, we’re reconcil’d!
What does God see in a sinner like me?
Yet I’m His child, for eternity!
Our God’s great love, so wondrously true,
Forgives thru’ Jesus each day anew!
I’m praising Christ Jesus each new day,
His love on the Cross, He did portray!
He paid our sin debt and set us free,
What true love sees is a mystery!
Do we as God’s children true love show?
Our love, like a light, should surely glow!
Is our love like God’s? A mystery?
True love should be our identity!

ABOVE AND BEYOND
Above and beyond, Christ Jesus did go,
Enduring great pain, as He suffered so.
By God the Father, our Saviour was sent,
Willingly He came, and to the cross He went.
Above and beyond, is Christ’s love for us,
All God’s children, to Him are precious.
Loving us, guiding us, each day anew,
Christ Jesus looks after, God’s chosen few.
Above and beyond, Christ goes for me and you,
With an awesome love, that’s forever true.
He will never leave, He will not forsake,
If a commitment to Him, we will make.
As I do consider my life this day,
Do I love Him enough? Do I obey?
Do I go above and beyond, for my Lord?
Or do I turn my back, on Him and His Word?
Above and beyond, NO! I do not go,
I fall so short, causing Christ sorrow.
I must love Him more, with my heart, soul and mind,
Then vast treasures of blessings, I will find.

ALL FOR THE LIKES OF ME
You left Heaven’s most splendid glory,
And came to Earth, for the likes of me.
You gave up comfort, for grief and pain,
That sinful me, might have eternal gain.
You left the beauty of Heaven above,
And came to man’s evil, all in love.
Tremendous sorrow and agony,
You did go thru’, for the likes of me.
You left Heaven, as great God and King,
And came to Earth, with simply nothing.
You became a humble Servant here,
For the likes of me, that I might not fear.
You left all of the Heavenly hosts,
Came to the sin, of the earthly coasts.
You left the praise and glory above,
And came down to the likes of me, in love.
You left it all; and here had no home,
Left riches; and in poverty, did roam.
Was not accepted, or recognized,
For the likes of me; ‘tis hard to surmise.
Wonderful Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Died on the Cross, as told in your Word.
All done in great love, given so free,
To take sin away, from the likes of me.

Amazing Love of Christ
Love urged Jesus, to leave Heaven’s safety,
To come to Earth, to pay sin’s penalty.
I can’t comprehend, Jesus’ kind of love,
Care, concern, compassion, just from above!
In Gethsemane, love made Jesus pray,
Let this cup pass, if there’s another way!
But there was no other way, He had to die,
He did not back down, He did not e’vn try!
Love made Jesus endure, His horrid fate,
Violent torture, Christ did tolerate!
Severe whipping, made His bones to be bare,
The Bible says: they look on me and stare!
Love allowed Jesus, not one word to say,
In His defense, on that horrible day!
He was delivered, because of envy,
His own people, refused to set Him free
The Jews demanded, He be crucified,
Because of His blasphemy, He must die!
They stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe,
And a crown of thorns, on Him they bestow’d.
In love to us, He went up to Calv’ry,
To pay our sin debt, and set our soul free.
Such amazing love, I can’t comprehend,
Deep, heart-felt love, He could never pretend!
The love of Christ, I cannot comprehend,
The Almighty Creator, calls me friend!
I am not worthy, to put on His shoe,
Yet this Majestic God, loves me and you!

Some things to consider
Here are some of the unlawfulness of the Jewish trials. #1. A man could never be arrested at night for a capital crime. Jesus' arrest took place between 1 and 2 o'clock at night. #2. No arrest for a capital crime could be made upon information given by a follower or colleague of the accused. The entire plot revolved around Judas, one of Jesus’ followers. #3. No Jewish trial could be held at night. Both trials before Annas and Caiaphas, were held in darkness. #4. After hearing the testimony of witnesses in a capital crime, they could not immediately act and judge. They were to go home and remain alone and separate from one another for two days. They did not do that. They Jewish court never left the presence of Caiaphas! #5. Their vote was supposed to be taken from the youngest to the oldest so that the youngest wouldn't be intimidated or influenced by the older votes. This never happened.
Barabbas was a notorious criminal, he was a murderer, he was an insurrectionist, he was guilty of sedition and he was bound in prison awaiting death by crucifixion. It was a capital crime he had committed. He was the one guilty of treason, not Jesus. So, Pilate thought that if he were to put Barabbas next to Jesus, and offered to release one of them, the Jews would say, "Don't release Barabbus! Release Jesus!" But it backfired upon him. They said they wanted Jesus crucified (Matthew 27:19-23)!
So they gathered a band of soldiers, stripped Him and put on a scarlet robe on Him, placed a crown of thorns on His Head, and a reed in His Right Hand, mocked Him by bowing down and saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” They hit Him on His Head, spit on him, and led him away to be crucified. (Matthew 27:26-31).
You and I deserve that spit. We deserve the nails in His Feet and Hands. It was OUR sin that He bore, NOT His. It was OUR place He took on the cross. We should have been there NOT Him! We are the guilty ones, we are like sheep gone astray, turned everyone to our own ways. We are the rebels. OUR iniquity has separated us from God, NOT His. The message behind all of this is because of Jesus’ amazing love, He died for us! He did it for us. He became sin for us, so we would not have to pay sin’s penalty . . . eternity in Hell! John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
CAN YOU FEEL IT??
Can you feel it? that love He sheds on you?
Amazing love; deep and always true!
Such contentment; this feeling of peace,
And this grand feeling will only increase!
O’ that tremendous love; can you feel it?
Flowing thru’ your soul, by the Holy Spirit!
Such great joy; now and forever more,
Eternal blessings for us, are held in store!
Are you God’s child, thru’ Jesus today?
If so, God’s love, will never go away!
It’s there forever, and absolutely free!
There to help us live harmoniously!
If to God’s family, you belong,
You will feel His love, ever so strong!
It will give you strength and comfort and pow’r,
For Christ is ever so near, at any hour!
Can you feel it? as thru’ you it exudes,
In time of crisis, it will not elude.
Can you feel it? love from Christ to you?
A blessing that will always continue!

DO UNTO OTHERS
If you want others not to lie to you,
Then you must speak only words that are true.
Do unto others only right, good things,
Or you cannot expect your life, good bring.
If you want others to be loving and kind,
You cannot to these qualities be blind.
You must show love, and kindness, from deep down,
Or what you receive, may cause you to frown.
If you want others to speak soft, tender words,
Then harsh, evil speech, from you can’t be hurl’d.
Speak unto others, as you’d want them to,
Soft, tender words, they can’t misconstrue.
Do unto others as you’d have them do,
Don’t be abrupt, impatient, or untrue.
A calm, gentle nature, gracious and meek,
Against such there’s no law; this we should seek.
If you want others to help comfort you,
Then you, to them, must be a good friend too.
Quiet and pleasant, with love that abounds,
Do unto others, and friends will be found.
If you want forgiveness, for wrongs you’ve done,
Then you must forgive, if any you’ve shunn’d.
Do unto others, as you’d have them do,
No better advice than this; tried and true.
By: Connie Kramer Nov.28,1996 # 276
(Mt.7:12; 6:14-15; Pro.15:1; Gal.5:14; Ro.13:10)
DO YOU DO TO OTHERS?
Do you speak cross words, when you could be nice?
Do you always TAKE, never sacrifice?
Those that you love, do you tell them you care?
Or go thru’ life as if they were not there?
Our life here on Earth is so very brief,
We should try our best, not to cause folks grief.
Do only what you would want done to you,
A good rule to live by; proven and true!
We don’t know when God will call us away,
Neither those we love; time we cannot sway.
Guard the words you say, and the deeds you do,
Or you may regret , in days that ensue.
If we treat a loved one mean and low,
Thru’ hateful words or deeds, causing sorrow.
What if God would call that person away?
Could you bear the guilt, the rest of your days?
We all need to take a look at our life,
Do we bring happiness? or cause much strife?
Do and say to others, only good things,
You’ll reap what you sow, for that’s what life brings.
Have you hurt or injured someone you love?
It’s easy, in this world of push and shove.
Apologize! make their hurt go away,
Friend, YOU’LL be blessed, as you go your way.

DYING ON THAT CROSS
He was betrayed by a ‘trusted’ friend,
He knew Judas would betray in the end.
False witnesses did rise up and accuse,
But He opened not His mouth to refuse.
He gave His back to that cruel scourge,
Unmerciful they were; without urge!
Pain and agony, beyond compare,
His bones did look upon Him and stare.
They plucked the hair from off His cheeks,
Mocked and insulted; but He was meek.
Made Him a ‘crown’ of sharpest thorns,
Crushed it on His Head to adorn.
As He trod Calvary’s road that day,
The jeering crowd barely gave Him way.
Such awful hate, made His heart to break,
Couldn’t they see, this was for their sake?
That relentless scourging, left Him so weak,
He’d lost much Blood, He could barely speak.
As He struggled to carry His ‘Cross’,
He ne’er did think, all this to be loss.
hen He reached the top of Calv’ry’s hill,
That jeering throng, was with Him still!
They drove huge nails in His hands and feet,
Making so sure their job was complete.
He died on that Cross, to save your soul,
Most don’t think so, but He’s in control.
Only He can grant the ‘key’ to Heav’n’s gate,
trust and accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.
By: Connie Kramer Feb.25,1996 # 150
(Ps.22; 69; Is.53)
NO one but Jesus could have love like this!
ENOUGH TO GO AROUND
God’s love is sufficient, it abounds,
There’s always enough to go around!
But, just thru’ Christ can it come to you,
Love overabundant and always true!
There’s enough to go around, always,
‘Tis continually ample all our days.
To this love, just Christ can give access,
Entrance to the Father, so He can bless!
Enough to go around, each single day,
God’s wondrous love, an amazing display!
Available only thru’ His Son,
When you trust Christ, it’s just begun!
Enough to go around the whole world,
God’s never ending love is unfurl’d.
God’s only begotten Son is the Way,
To experience this blessing, for always!
God will never slight you, when Christ you’ve found,
His love will be enough to go around!
Abundantly available to ev’ry one,
Thru’ the gracious compassion of God’s Son!

GIFTS OF LOVE
Wondrous gifts from our Father above,
Giv’n to His children, with such great love.
Marvelous gifts of love, we don’t deserve,
Gifts of love He gives, when Him we serve.
One fine gift is His amazing grace,
Our horrid sins, He’ll completely erase.
With our simple faith, His gifts begin,
By accepting Christ, God’s pleasure we win.
God’s awesome gift of peace, floods our soul,
Revealing to us, He’s in control.
God’s spiritual gifts, are better than gold,
And out of His abundance, they do unfold.
Another gift of love from God, is joy,
A deep within feeling, no one can destroy.
Knowing in your heart “I’m going to Heav’n,”
This wondrous gift of love, from God is giv’n.
All God’s gifts of love, give us contentment,
And all of them rely, on our commitment.
We must trust Christ with our all, always,
To receive God’s gifts of love, all our days.
All God’s gifts of love, with Jesus begin,
We must accept God’s GIFT of Christ, within.
Acceptance of Him must come from our heart,
And when He comes in, He’ll ne’er depart.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Apr.15,2002 #872
May we never forget to praise God for all His gifts to us!
GOD NE’ER DID PROMISE
God ne’er did promise skies always blue,
There are times when He’ll send a storm too.
God ne’er did promise sun without rain,
There are times we’ll be subject to pain.
God ne’er did promise no trouble or woe,
But He’ll be with us, His grace to show.
Trials and temptations will on us come,
‘Til that fateful day He calls us ‘home’.
God ne’er did promise roads smooth and wide,
But when things get rough; He’ll be our ’Guide’.
Should our path get treacherous and steep,
We know He’s there, His strength we can reap.
God ne’er did promise life without toil,
But He’s near, and our efforts won’t foil.
Rivers of waters; raging and deep,
Should not scare; for His children He’ll keep.
God DID PROMISE His children great things,
True love, mercy, and forgiveness, He brings!
Strength, rest, peace, and joy, all from above,
Grace and compassion, from a God of love!

GOD’S AMAZING GRACE
The amazing grace of God in Heaven,
Has all my sins freely forgiven.
When I believed and trusted His Son,
Eternal life for me had just begun.
I was so deep in sin, plain and true,
Only God’s grace could have seen me thru’.
He sent His only Son to save my soul,
Rescuing me from Satan’s control.
God’s amazing grace, His love divine,
Saved from Hell, that wretched soul of mine.
This love so wonderful, so true indeed,
‘Tis there for whosoever, is in need.
The amazing grace of God freely flows,
To all humanity, here in our woes.
Divine and excelling, is God’s great love,
It flows so abundantly from above.
Nought can compare, to God’s amazing grace,

Just He can save us from the pits of Hell,
And grant entrance to Heav’n, where He dwells.

Loving us always, He’ll always bless.
Surrounded by His love; His children are,
They’re WHOSOEVER, both near and far.
Caressing love; it’s so very real,
I feel it always, as I humbly kneel.
His caressing love is always near,
No matter my plight, I’ve nought to fear.

That sin is gone, from it I am free.
Caressing love, from my Father who cares,

And everlasting life, we do receive.
A home in Heaven, with our Lord awaits,
Our prepared mansion, is just thru’ the gates.
This wondrous grace, we don’t work for or deserve,
Comes from our Lord’s never ending reserve.
Not one person, is worthy of His grace,
But faith in Christ assures, we’ll see His Face.

GOD’S GREAT LOVE
Like a wildfire, burning out of control,
Is God’s great love, consuming our soul!
O, so quickly, as a fire devours,
The wondrous love of God is truly ours!

And praise our Holy God, it will NOT cease!

The source of ALL His many blessings!
Troubles and sorrow can’t take it away,
They just make way for a bigger display!
Do we deserve God’s marvelous love?
No! for ‘tis a ‘gift’ from God above!
‘Tis poured out upon us when we believe,
And Jesus as Saviour, we receive!
There’s only one thing that we must do,
Before this great love comes into view.
Turn to Jesus, God’s one perfect Son,
Then God’s fantastic love, you have won!

God loves so much, He sent His Son,
To pay the price, for sins we had done.
He died on that cross for us, that day,
The Father said, ‘twas no other way.
God is a God, of so much mercy,
He forgives us, making us guilt free.
Into the deep sea, our sin He casts,
Allowing us to forget, our past.
God is a God, of much compassion,
When we accept Jesus, His own Son.
Rejecting Jesus, brings on God’s wrath,
Keeping you firmly, on Hell’s broad path.
On God’s love, we should ne’er turn away,
‘Twould be foolish, on any giv’n day!
Rather, in wisdom, this we should do,
Reach out, hold love firmly, me and you.
Only a fool, would God’s love reject,
On our lives, it can have a strong effect.
Accepting God’s love, is wise indeed,
For God and His love, shall rightly lead.
God’s desire is that no one go to Hell,
Instead He wants all, in Heav’n to dwell.
God’s love, is what we all should desire,
For no one would want, the Lake of Fire.

HE FIRST LOVED ME
I love, because God first loved me,
Because of love, from sin, I must flee.
If we love, we shouldn’t have any fear,
For Christ our Saviour, is always near.
God is love: he that loves, dwells in God,
This love comes freely, no need to prod.
If I dwell in God; God dwells in me,
Christ’s gracious love, gave me victory!
Who e’er shall confess Jesus as ‘LORD’,
Shall be forgiv’n; plain is His Word.
God loved us much, to send His Son,
If we believe, eternal life’s begun!
We too must love, as our God does love,
Patient, forgiving love, as from above.
If we hate our brother, we hate God,
We must love and forgive, as Earth we trod.
Love, full of mercy, compassion and grace,
Is what we should strive for in our race.
Ne’er ending, ne’er changing, love so true,
I fall so short, how about you?

His love is higher than Mt. Everest,
Withstanding time, and surviving all tests.
Higher than the stars, so far above,
Is our Lord Jesus’ awesome love.
His love is deeper, than the ocean floor,
Enduring the cross for us, and much more.
Deeper than the deepest pit, far below,
Is the love of Jesus, that He bestows.
His love is wider, than east is from the west,
Persevering with wondrous steadfastness.
Wider than the width of the heavens so high,
On our dear Saviour’s love, we can rely.
His love is something no one can explain,
He died for us, in agonizing pain.
No matter what, His love is always there,
His love is compassion, concern and care.

His Divine Love
On His divine Love, I cannot deny,
Instead on it, I completely rely.
Because of His grand, incredible love,
God sent His Son, from Heaven above.
Such sinners as we are, we'd ne'er reach Heaven,
God made just One Plan, and to us He's giv'n.
Jesus is the Truth, the Life and the Way,
Believe God, trust Christ, if you want Heaven one day.
On His divine pow'r, we must not reject,
Just Christ can make us God's child, and protect!
If we ever want to reach, Heaven's gate,
You must decide now, after death; it's too late!
You must never, from His wisdom, turn away,
He'll never lead wrongly, not any day!
He'll go with us, He'll counsel if we accept,
Then lead us to glory, and always protect.
When we fall into sin, which we ALL will do,
God's forgiveness is there, for both me and you.
Once He forgives sin, He remembers it NO more,
Eternal life leads us, to Heaven's shore.
Christ Jesus the Saviour, we must not deny,
And with His Commandments, we must comply.
"Another Jesus," so many serve today,
THAT Jesus will just get you, to Hell's broad way.
Once saved, always saved, eternal life is thine,
That street of gold your feet will trod, along with mine.
Such a grand Promise from God, Who cannot lie,
Believe Him my friend, and on Jesus rely.

HIS HAND REACHING DOWN
Is your life, just alcohol and drugs?
Do you run, with criminals and thugs?
Do you live, in deep darkness and fear?
Are gang’s roars, the only thing you hear?
Does depression on you, have its hold?
Temptation from Satan, is it bold?
Does life seem to hold you, in a cage?
Are you filled, with violence and rage?
Sin will take you, where you don’t want to go,
Day after day, ‘tis pain and sorrow.
There is good news, you might want to hear,
He can reach down, and remove your tears.
You can escape, the cycle of sin,
With Jesus on your side, you can win!
Change direction, go the other way,
Sin’s bondage can turn, to a bright day.
Satan will try, to harden your heart,
When from his grip, you try to depart.
You can travel, a much better road,
And Jesus will help, carry your load.
Jesus reaches down, His Hand to you,
Your life can take on, a diff’rent view.
You can leave behind, your ugly past,
He will help, all you need do is ask.
Only Christ can help you, turn away,
From sinful habits, you had each day,
When He reaches down, He’ll lift you high,
And always on Him, you can rely.
Sin will take you, where you don’t want to go,
And Satan will take you, to Hell below!
Just Jesus can turn your life around,
When you reach out to Christ, you’re Heaven bound!

HIS MIRRORED LOVE
In the mirror of His precious love,
Reflects that His care, comes from above.
I cannot look on Him, without tears,
This Amazing One, my voice always hears.
Innocent and pure as a lily fair,
Sacrificed His All; my sins to bear!
With a ‘cat of nine tails,’ they did scourge,
For all my sins, He wanted to purge!
Thorns at His Temples, did gore and gash,
His Back was bloody, from the whip’s lash!
Streams of Blood flow’d, from His ev’ry Part,
But streams of love flow’d, from His tender Heart!
By His many stripes, I have been healed,
And by His awesome Spirit, I am sealed!
His agonizing love, shows so clear,
He loves us deeply; we’ve nought to fear!
O How patient our dear Saviour stands,
Waiting to break sin’s strong, evil bands!
But most insult out Lord’s loving case,
They reject Him; they spit in His Face!
His love is mirrored to one and all,
But by the way He’s treated, I’m appalled!
He didn’t have to die on that tree,
Yet He left Heav’n’s glory, for you and me!

I DON’T WANNA
I don’t wanna go if You’re not there,
For no one with You, can e’er compare.
No one could e’er take Your place with me,
You give absolute serenity.
I don’t wanna go on life’s road alone,
I want Light from You so the path is shown
I want Your Presence, ever so near,
For You cast away, all of my fear.
I don’t wanna go, if You won’t go,
I need You Lord, in joy and sorrow.
You always comfort and encourage me,
And You keep far away, my enemy.
I don’t wanna make choices without You,
Decisions with Your help, are right and true.
Without Your assistance, I’d go wrong,
I need Your loving pow’r, e’er so strong.
I don’t wanna be any place You are not,
For each day Your strength is eagerly sought.
You are the Vine, I’m just a branch holding tight,
Your love and pow’r sees me thru’ all my plights.
I don’t wanna think of life without You,
Dear Lord, what could I possibly do?
I want to be with You, for all eternity,
For life without You would be agony.

IF HE DIDN’T CARE
Would He have died, if He didn’t care?
My friend, His love is awesome and rare!
No one could love more than He,
And His love lasts, for eternity!
If He didn’t care, He’d not have died,
But He submitted, and was crucified!
His precious Blood, on the cross was shed,
That those who trust Him, would have no dread.
Would He have left Heaven’s security?
If He didn’t care, for you and me?
He left the glory of the heavenly host,
To come and suffer, on earthly coasts.
If He didn’t care, He wouldn’t have come,
Leaving the comfort of His heav’nly Home.
He loves us much; He really does care,
And our burdens of life, He does share.
If He didn’t care, He’d not be near,
But He abides, chasing away our fears.
He never leaves, never forsakes,
Lovingly forgives our horrid mistakes.
He does care! Our precious Saviour cares!
And all our troubles, He gladly shares!
What a blessing He is to us all,
His awesome love on us does befall.

Tho’ the road of life be rugged and steep,

All because of His unfailing grace!

JESUS LOVES YOU
Jesus loves you, He wants you to know,
He died on the cross, that love to show.
Over and over the Bible tells,
Jesus does not want you to go to Hell.
Jesus loves you, ‘tis so very clear,
His great desire is to have you near.
“Come to Me, come to Me,” He does say,
Why O why dear one, do you turn away?
Jesus loves you, O please believe this,
The Bible will never lead you amiss.
Believe God, trust Him this very day,
For to Heaven, there’s no other way.
Jesus loves you, wants to be your Friend,
And He will stay with you to the end.
His Presence can be so near to you,
Believe what he says, His Words are true.
Jesus loves you, O why do you doubt?
All those uncertainties, cast them out!
Doubt, fear and worry, can all be gone,
You no longer need, be the devil’s pawn.

LET THE LOVE OF CHRIST . . .
Let the love of Christ put you in motion,
Jesus wants your total devotion.
He wants you to reach out to His lost sheep,
Tell of the ‘Shepherd’ who surely does keep.
Let the love of Christ motivate you,
Doing the things that He would want you to.
Loving your brothers, showing mercy,
Hardest of all; loving your enemy!
Let the love of Christ simply compel,
All your actions; and always speak well.
Your life will show what’s deep in your heart,
Let your love o’er flow, ne’er to depart.
Let the love of Christ urge you on each day,
When you awake, don’t forget to pray..
Ask Him to fill you with His Spirit,
Without His help, our works are unfit.
Let the love of Christ keep you right and straight,
Unto Him, your all, you should dedicate.
Gratefully serve Him, until you die,
Him and Him only, should you glorify!

When we as His children, His Word heed.
Compassion and mercy, on us He sheds,
When we reverence Him, there is no dread.
On all His children, God has pity,
Abundant compassion, for you and me.
When God forgives us, it is complete,
As far as the west is, from the east.
He forgives all our iniquities,
He casts them into the deepest sea.
Lord, here I am again, thanking Thee,
For all the blessings, You bestow on me.
Amazingly awesome, that is You,
Lord I praise You, for all that You do.

Psalm 103; Mic.7:18-19
Love is a ‘door’, passing from ‘self’ to service,
Wondrous love for Christ, takes away darkness.
Love is the key to Heav’n, it unlocks the gate,
It’s Christ’s love for us, wiping clean our slate.
Love is the only service, money can’t buy,
Yet so very many, certainly do try!
Love is the only service, power can’t command,
Yet the world today, can’t seem to understand!
Love’s not like a reservoir, it won’t run dry,
Love’s like a natural spring, it won’t e’er die.
Love is not blind, For God does surely see,
Love can change our life, and make us all free!

LOVE . . . March 2009 Monthly Message
If we love the Lord, with all our heart,
We’ll not e’er, from His goodness depart.
If we love the Lord, with all our soul,
We’ll give to Him daily, full control.
If we love the Lord, with all our mind,
Eternal life in Heav’n, we shall find.
If with all our strength, we love the Lord,
We’ll be empow’red daily, by His Word.
Loving neighbor as self, we must do,
Or our love to the Lord, is not true.
The Golden Rule, we should always follow,
Love in our heart, keeps away sorrow.
Jesus gives to us, just two commands,
Love God, love others; this He demands.
All this boils down, to one four letter word,
LOVE - - - is our command, from our Lord.

Love for the Lord
The love I have for the Lord, I must express,
A deep heart felt love, a love I must confess.
This fervent love for Him, grows stronger each day,
As I walk close to Him, in the narrow way.
I love Him more than my father or mother,
For Christ Jesus is, my spiritual Brother.
Because I love Jesus, the Father loves me too,
With love that I simply cannot, misconstrue.
God’s grace is with me, for my love is sincere,
For I can always feel, His Presence so near.
I will stand firm and hold fast, in this great love,
And reject evils, in this world of push and shove.
He blesses me, when I endure temptation,
Promised a crown, along with salvation.
Master, I love Thee, with all my heart and soul,
And I have given to You, complete control.
I look to the day, when You shall appear,
‘Twill be a day of joy, there will be no fear.
Face to face precious Lord, You will I see,
And I will then spend with You, eternity.
Although I have not seen Him, I love Him so,
And know He will keep me, from fiery Hell below.
Instead I shall abide, on Heav’n’s blissful shore,
And there daily learn, to love Him, yet more.

LOVE IS AN ENEMY . . . February 2015 Message
To Satan, true love is an enemy,
Our hate makes him smile in wicked glee.
Kind, loving words that come from the heart,
Makes the old devil, quickly depart.
He wants us to fuss, one with another,
He wants strife and conflict, among brothers.
He wants not a bit of love to be shown,
He wants us to act, as if Christ isn’t known.
A great enemy of Satan, is love,
The devil hates our dear Lord from above.
Satan does not want us to be like Him,
He wants us to continue, right on in sin.
The old devil has a great enemy,
The love of our Lord, toward you and me.
Satan really hates true godly love,
He tries to keep us from God above.
True godly love is Satan’s enemy,
He grins when we keep on, in iniquity.
But just love for God, and our brethren too,
This love is what we, should always pursue.
Love the Lord your God, with all of your heart,
And the hatred of Satan will depart.
Let us to one another, godly love show,
Let us cause the devil, sorrow and woe.

Love of Christ, The. . . February 2012 Monthly Message
Down deep in Christ’s heart, is love untold,
Love more precious, than the purest gold.
Most people on this fact, don’t agree,
As they rush madly, to eternity.
Each person has an eternal soul,
That speeds on, to an eternal goal.
This goal results, in choices you make,
So Christ’s love, you must not forsake.
We’re all sinners, the Bible does tell,
Without Jesus, we’re headed for Hell.
Jesus’ love, paid our sin’s penalty,
His death on that cross, is our vict’ry.
God loved us so, He sent His own Son,
So eternal salvation could be won.
Christ came not to condemn, but to save,
But we must accept Christ, ‘fore the grave.
Just thru’ Christ, can God’s Kingdom we see,
And the mansion, where one day we’ll be.
Our inheritance, that will not fade,
We must accept, the price that Christ paid.
Consider the love of Christ, this day,
Don’t go another step, the wrong way.
Don’t reject Christ, grab on to His love,
For just He can get you to Heav’n above.

LOVE WITH THE LOVE OF GOD
The love of Jesus does compel me,
To love even my worst enemy.
We must love, with the love of God,
To be His children, and not frauds.
We must love with everlasting love,,
With lovingkindness from God above.
Humble, patient, and compassionate,
With a forgiving nature, not hate.
God loved us much, to call us “sons”,
But without Christ, this title can’t be won!
We must love the Lord, with all our heart,
Trust and obey; and from sin depart.
Loving God comes first in the life we live,
Also to our neighbor, love we must give.
If we believe God, and do what He says,
Eternity in Heav’n will be our stay.

LOVE, MERCY, GRACE AND PEACE
We think of ‘love’ when we think of God,
His pure love is true, the world abroad.
‘Love’ is His character, His quality,
His love will go on, thru’ eternity.
Thru’ God’s holy love, He shows ‘mercy’,
Sending His Son, to pay our penalty.
We all, as sinners, have gone astray,
Without God’s ‘mercy’, we’re Satan’s prey.
The ‘grace’ of God is a wondrous thing,
For it, to us, salvation will bring.
‘Grace’ too, stems from God’s enormous love,
It’s undeserved kindness, from God above.
God’s love, mercy and grace end with ‘peace’,
And for God’s children, it does increase.
Our sins are gone; completely forgiv’n,
And we know our home is reserv’d in Heav’n.
God’s ‘love’ leads to ‘mercy’, ‘mercy’ to ‘grace’,
One day soon, we’ll meet Him, Face to face.
We’ll have ‘peace’ and joy for eternity,
Because of God’s ‘love’ for you and me.

The beauty of a rose, we cherish,
But soon it’s gone, for it will perish.
Love like a rose, has great beauty too,
Eternally there, for you and me.
The love that Christ has for all of us,
Is love unspeakable, and precious.
This love, we must show to each other,
We must always care for our brother.
True love is something we need not force,
It comes from the heart; it runs its course.
True love is there when we’re down and low,
It’s always there, with its special glow.
Love from each other, and love from our Lord,
Is to be greatly cherish’d and ador’d.
True love can help make our day go right,
For pain and trouble seem to take flight!

More of Jesus, in my life I need,
Without Him, I wouldn’t want to proceed.
More of His love, that I can pass on,
A wonder it is, to know God’s Son.
More of His Word, I crave deep inside,
More of His Spirit, who does abide.
Without Jesus, it’s as dark as night,
I truly do need, more of His light.
I desp’rately need more of His pow’r,
Week by week, day by day, hour by hour.
More wisdom, I ask that He would bless,
And I would ask too, for more kindness.
Goodness and mercy, I do need more,
For my precious Saviour, I do adore.
I look to the day, when I see His Face,
I need more, of Jesus’ precious grace.
More of His strength, I need each day,
And more and more faith along the way.
More tender compassion and forgiveness,
With more of Your traits Lord, please do bless.
More of His rare peace, within my soul,
And more patience, and more self control.
More joy, faithfulness, and hope to abound,
All Christ’s wonders are simply profound.
More and more of Christ’s traits we all need,
If in our life, we want to succeed.
More and more of Christ, let us admit,
And let us to the will of God, submit.

More About Jesus
More about Jesus, we all should know,
And it’s to the Bible, we must go!
Man’s vain doctrines, we must cast away,
We must learn more of Jesus, ev’ry day!
More about Jesus, ’tis wise we should learn,
This should be something, for which we yearn.
False teachers bring to you, heresies,
That lead only, to Hell’s agony!
More about Jesus, more of His love,
Truth about reaching, Heaven above!
That all will go to Heaven, is a LIE,
Believing this, is Christ to deny!
More about Jesus, learn what is true,
Christ alone, can bring salvation to you.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing, are filled with greed,
On poor, naive Christians, they feed!
More about Jesus, and how to endure,
We must remember, His love is sure.
Cast away thoughts, that Christ is not near,
He dearly loves you, there should be no fear.
More about Jesus, know He’s your Friend,
Truth and sincerity, He shall commend.
Open your heart to Him, let Him in,
He will help you, turn your back to sin.
More about Jesus, but most want no part,
From all His goodness, they simply depart.
Oh! Dear one, turn and lean more today,
For only Jesus, can save your soul,
Learn more about Jesus, give Him control!

And let me not do things selfishly!

MUCH MORE PRECIOUS . . . Feb.1999 Message
Much more precious than bright diamonds,
Is Christ’s love for us, that does abound.
Love so gracious, merciful and true,
Such precious love, we can’t misconstrue.
Much more precious than a grand ruby,
Is Christ’s love, that brought us victory.
Sin and Satan no longer control,
For Christ our Saviour, has saved our soul.
Much more precious than possessions galore,
Knowing one day we’ll be on Heav’n’s shore.
To live for e’er with Jesus so dear,
With never a heartache, pain nor fear.
Much more precious than earthly power,
Is Christ’s awesome love, that’s there ev’ry hour.
His grace and love and mercy unending,
There for us always, strongly defending.
Much more precious than treasures untold,
His love is more precious than fine gold.
Christ is wondrous, so true; I’m at a loss,
He loved us so much, He died on the Cross.

Not once, in all the many years gone by,
Did you ever forsake me, or deny.
Long before I trusted you, you were there,
I could not see then, how much you did care.
Even as a child, so wild and carefree,
You were there always, watching me closely.
You never gave up on me, no, not once,
Always so patient, waiting, for my “yes”.
You were there in my childhood, and my teens,
The life I led, was surely not pristine.
On to adulthood, I still did reject,
Not once did you leave, but only protect.
Finally your Words did lodge in my heart,
I pray that I never, from you depart.
May I ever be grateful to my Lord,
May I walk with Him, in willing accord.
Not once, in all my years, did you forsake,
Thru’ all my sorrows, and many mistakes.
‘Tis a joy to know you are there always,
Granting grace, mercy, and peace, all my days.

Thank You, thank You, thank You!!!
OCEAN OF LOVE
God’s ocean of love, is all around,
So deep and so wide, it does confound.
Thru’ this ocean, each one of us sail,
When we trust by faith, He does avail.
Humbly we sail, as we live each day,
His great love is around us always.
Tho’ storms of life, make waves high and wide,
We’ll come out fine, on the other side.
We can sail on His ocean, peacefully,
We will not sink, He gives victory.
As we journey onward in this life,
His ocean of love, keeps us from strife.
Onward we sail, thru’ the rocky shoals,
His will in our life, should be our goal.
His brilliant Light, as a beacon shines,
I claim God’s ocean of love as mine.
Humbly we sail in God’s ocean of love,
His gracious concern comes from Heav’n above.
He watches us closely, as we sail,
Watching the good things, too when we fail.
Only my Saviour can safely guide,
Great pow’r and wisdom He does provide.
Grace and mercy from our Lord does flow,
As thru’ God’s ocean of love we go.
Let’s not fail Him, as thru’ life we proceed,
To His soft gentle voice, we must pay heed.
Thru’ God’s ocean of love, let’s keep on,
Upheld by the Hand, of God’s own Son.

On The Wings of Love
On the wings of love, God sent His Son,
That eternal life, thru’ Him might be won.
His love so great, so pure. and so true,
He sheds on the world, both me and you.
On the wings of love, our Saviour came,
Knowing He’d have agony, and shame.
God condescended, for you and me,
To pay our debt, and set our soul free,
On the wings of love, Christ Jesus died,
He was tortured, and then crucified.
But our Lord arose; He is alive,
God the Father, with pow’r, did revive!
On the wings of love, Christ did ascend,
To God’s right Hand, where us, He defends!
Christ is our Lord, Friend, and Advocate,
And because of Him, Heav’n is our fate!

OUR PERFECT GOD
He’s the ‘Rock’, His work is always perfect,
With Him, no plan or work is e’er defect.
A God of truth, without iniquity,
And to please Him, this is how we must be.
Just how can we be without iniquity?
All sin; on our own, we are infirmity.
But God made a plan, ‘fore He made the world,
To be perfect, we must trust Christ, as Lord.
When we trust Jesus to save us from Hell,
God makes us His children, His Word does tell.
Christ was made sin for us, who knew no sin,
We’re made the righteousness of God in Him.
As for God, His way is always perfect,
He’s always right; we should always respect.
He’s a buckler to all that trust in Him,
Believe what He says, life won’t be so grim.
The Lord God is righteous, in all His ways,
There’s nothing wrong or unjust, all His days.
He’s nigh unto all that call upon Him,
Don’t wait too long, that your chance grows slim.
What our God does, it shall be forever,
I’m His today; this tie He’ll not sever.
His perfect salvation plan will rescue,
This means “Whosoever”, it means me and you!

Without a doubt, He’s our victorious winner.
This enduring love that will last forever,
There’s nothing on Earth, from us can sever.
Nothing can destroy it, or take it away,
It will be there always, come what may.
Our Saviour’s love is patient, forgiving, kind,
Love beyond description, and baffles the mind.
It will not falter, condemn, stumble, or fall,

Look close, my friend, and you will see,
That the Lord God, truly does love thee.
Be patient, joy comes after the pain,
You can’t have a rainbow, without the rain!
Do not close the door to your heart,
Do not from, the Lord God depart!
Remember His Promise, “I will not leave,”
Rejoice my friend, each time you grieve.
Rejoice! Knowing full well that He’s there,
Rejoice! for the Lord truly does care!
Rejoice! for His Promise in not in vain,
He will be with you, in trouble or pain!

SAYING I’M GRATEFUL . . .
Saying I’m grateful just scratches the surface,
How I thank Him for His amazing grace!
Nothing I did, made God predestine me,
Yet I’ll live with Him, for eternity!
Predestinated, to become God’s own child,
Ev’n tho’ my nature is totally defil’d!
He chose me before, He created the world,
My life, before Him, completely unfurl’d!
I can take no credit, no, none at all,
But I can be grateful, I heard His call!
I don’t deserve His mercy and His love,
Yet He reached down and chose me, from Heav’n above!
Saying I’m grateful; ‘tis not enough to say,
For my heart and soul, rejoice ev’ry day!
I’ll praise You always, for Your awesome grace,
I look so to the day when I see Your Face!
Saying I’m grateful, are just words I speak,
It’s the nearness of Your Presence I seek!
I’ll praise You now, and eternity thru’,
My eternal soul will always thank You!
Saying I’m grateful, is a very small thing,
For Your choosing me, wondrous blessings bring!
According to the good pleasure of Thy will,
My entire being, Your Spirit does fill!
I’m so grateful, You chose me long ago,
But why You chose me, I surely don’t know!
I’ll say I’m grateful, till I’m home with You,
For privileged I am, to be one of the “few”.

SIGNS OF LOVE
There are many outward signs of love,
To show we’re children of God above.
First, consider, we must show we care,
And if we’re needed, to always be there.
Another sign of love is concern,
Showing an interest, this we must learn.
Compassion too, we must always show,
As God in Heav’n on us does bestow.
True love will always reveal kindness,
A soft, tender heart; we must possess.
Yet another sign is humility,
Pride must NOT be our identity!
Patience is something we must not forget,
Losing our temper, we’ll always regret!
Gentleness is a sign of true love,
A fruit of the Spirit, from God above!
If we truly love, we will forgive,
As God forgives us, each day we live!
Helping each other in time of need,
If one is hurting, we should pay heed.
A great sign of love is faithfulness,
There in troubles, small or serious.
We must learn to love with the love of God,
If we want to please Him, as we trod.

The song my heart sings, is loud and glad,
Since Jesus came in, I’m no longer sad!
‘Tis a song of gratitude my heart sings,
A song that will be everlasting!

In honor of Jesus, in Heav’n above!
My song thanks Him for forgiving my sin,

My heart sings, for He has giv’n me peace,
My tension and strife, He did release!
Since Jesus came in, ‘tis a whole new world,
A new person from within, has unfurl’d.
My heart sings for the hope of tomorrow,
For Christ died for me, on the tree of sorrow.
Since Jesus came in, I now have hope,
No longer do I in darkness, grope.

For God has forgiv’n the sins of my past!

THE LOVE OF CHRIST
Deeper than the deepest part of the sea,
Is the love of our Lord, for you and me.
Love sincere, coming from deep in His Heart,
Love for God’s children, will ne’er depart.
His love is wider that the Heav’n’s above,
As wide As His outstretched Arms, is His love.
As He hung on the cross, and died for you,
So wide is His love, and merciful too.
His love is higher than Mount Everest,
And friend, it will stand your toughest test.
Higher and brighter than the clear blue sky,
Here for us now, on thru’ the by and by.
Our Saviour’s love is perfect and complete,
Friend all your needs, His awesome love can meet.

THE LOVE OF JESUS
Your spouse or friends can cut you to the quick,
But Jesus’ love is there, thru’ thin and thick.
You will never have a better Friend,
The love of Jesus is there to the end!
Those you love best can say harsh, evil words,
This won’t happen in friendship with our Lord.
Always there to aid with grace and mercy,
The love of Jesus is there, constantly!
Those you trust the most can walk out on you,
But Jesus’ love for you is tried and true.
He will never abandon, nor forsake,
Trust Jesus as your Friend; it’s NO mistake!
Those you care about at times act with hate,
Jesus is love; always compassionate.
Jesus loves you, and He really does care,
He will never leave you; He’s always there!

THE SPECIAL MAN
Walking down a lonely, dusty street,
A Special Man, with sandals on His feet.
Love beamed from His glorious Face,
Love that came from His Heart, wondrous grace.
This Special Man; when He look’d at you,
Could see your very soul, thru’ and thru’.
What an Awesome Man, to know all things,
Knew your thoughts, ‘fore from your mouth they’d spring.
He was so loving, patient, and kind,
Took pity on the lame, sick and blind.
Such compassion; no one can compare,
He spread His great mercy, ev’ry where.
This Special Man, was meek and lowly,
His Face was filled with serenity.
Never a cross word did He e’er say,
For He came, His Father, to portray.
Never from Him a vile or vain word,
Serene, gentle, and mild, was our Lord.
The Words He spoke, made you stop and think,
Those Words were for God; a direct link.
This Special Man, with powers untold,
Can grant you access, to streets of gold.
He too, shall judge all the world one day,
So make the right choice; go the right way!

True love will
not disappoint, ever,
It flows calmly, like a gentle river!
True love will not grieve, nor make you cry,
It soars like an eagle, in the blue sky!
True love wishes
only the best for you,
It tries from all wickedness, to rescue.
True love helps, in ev’ry circumstance,
It knows when you’re sad, at the briefest
True love gives
great peace, down in your heart,
It urges you, from stress to depart.
True love, to wondrous joy, gives access,
‘Tis an awesome ‘gift’ that
continues to bless!
True love forgives
us, when we do wrong,
Helping us to forgive, making us strong!
True love always seems to make things right,
Whether it’s deep darkness, or broad
The love of
God is good, and kind and true,
With mercy to astound, both me and you!
God sent His Son, that we might have a ‘Way,’
To live in Heaven, with Him some day!
The true love
of Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Is something that anyone can well afford!
True love Jesus showed, when He paid the price,
Death on the Cross, a supreme Sacrifice!
No one can show true love more than He,
Great compassion Christ shows, to you and me!
This true love of Jesus, you can access,
Ask Christ into your heart, and God will bless.

cannot quench true love,
Love is a wonder, just from above.
Neither can treacherous floods drown it,
True love is there for you, ev’ry minute.
True love is
so strong; even as death,
There with us always, ‘till our last
Love the Lord, He’ll preserve all who
With His true love, that will always last.
Love His salvation;
Seek Him and rejoice; life won’t be
God is good; ready to love and forgive,
Love Him; hate evil, as you do live.
Love God with
true love that will not fail,
For His great love, will always avail.
How much better is His love than wine,
It passes all knowledge; it is so fine!
What a wondrous, loving God above,
Willing to spread on us, His true love.
True love; His One Son, to us He gave,
That thru’ Christ, we have vict’ry o’er the grave.

WALKING IN LOVE
To walk in love, is to do acts of kindness,
Be kind to another, for them you do bless.
Let us walk in love, let Jesus lead the way,
Imitate our Lord, and brighten someone’s day!
A word of comfort or encouragement,
Is a tried and true kindness, Heaven sent.
Let the light of Jesus, on your path shine,
Let us walk, in His great love divine.
If we walk in His love, we will be kind,
Caring for others, will be on our mind.
When we see their sorrow, pain or sadness,
We walk in love, when we show kindness.
When you ease another’s heartache, you forget your own,
Blessings surround you when kindness is shown.
No act of kindness, is ever a waste,
For being kind is, God’s grace that you taste.

WHAT HELD HIM THERE?
He hung on that Cross; so bleak and bare,
As He suffered; “What held Him there?”
Was it nails they drove in His Hands?
Or was it great love, for all lands?
He could have called legions of angels,
To take Him down, and His agony quell.
Huge rusty nails in His hands and feet,
Did not hold Him there; ‘twas LOVE so sweet!
Great wondrous love, giv’n for me and you,
Love bound Him secure; vast love and true!
He bought our souls with His precious Blood,
Relieved God’s wrath with that crimson Flood!
Those nails did not hold Him to that tree,
“What held Him there?” love for you and me!
Love so very willing and so true,
Deep heart-felt love, we can’t construe!

I love all the poems He has given me . . . but this one reaches out to my soul!
WHAT WE HAVE IN CHRIST
A love that no one can understand,
We hold close in our heart, soul and hand.
A life in which we can never die,
When on our Saviour we do rely.
A righteousness that can’t be unclear,
Coming from Christ, and won’t disappear.
A peace that will never go away,
Given to us freely ev’ry day.
A rest that can never be discontent,
Blessings from Christ are never deficient.
A joy that will never discontinue,
For Christ’s joy remains in me and you.
A hope that can never be displac’d,
As we look to the day we see His Face.
A light within that will never dim,
It shines brightly as it comes from Him.
A happiness that can never be sad,
Contentment just from Christ can be had.
A strength that can never be frail,
The pow’r of Jesus will never fail.
A purity that can ne’er be defil’d,
Because Christ made us the Father’s child.
A wisdom that no one can confuse,
That thru’ this life on Earth, we can use.
We’re headed for Heav’n, where life ne’er ends,
We’ll live with our Saviour, Lord and Friend.
He will take care of us for e’er more,
For Christ has open’d for us Heav’n’s door.

No special person, will God respect,
There’s not anyone, He will reject.
But you must trust and believe His Son,
For you then, eternal life’s begun.
Whosoever, where e’er you may be,
God will accept you, for eternity.
Color of skin, matters not one bit,
But to God, your whole heart, you must commit.
Whosoever, what e’er nation you’re from,
He calls us ALL, you simply must come.
We shouldn’t hate, not one of mankind,
That hatred will possess heart and mind.
Whosoever, means both me and you,
Our loving God is faithful and true.
He wants us to live with Him in Heav’n.
But we must accept His Son He’s giv’n.

YOUR LOVE FOR CHRIST
Your love for Christ will intensify,
As on His presence you do rely.
You now realize you do need Him,
Before, thoughts of Christ were vague and dim.
Your love for Jesus will grow each day,
As His light brightens your darkest way.
You do need Him, you finally admit,
And to Christ, your all you do commit!
Your love for Jesus will never leave,
Once you trust Him and on Him believe!
You really need Him, this you now know,
All He does for you, just makes you glow!
Your love for Christ gives great peace and joy,
All of His blessings you do enjoy.
You need Him now, and in days to come,
Just He gives access to your Heav’nly Home!

The power of Your love was clearly shown,
When You sent Your Son, my sins to atone.
Vast power of Your love shines thru’ to me,
Guiding thru’ this life, and eternity!
The power of Your mercy is so clear,
‘Tis a privilege to always have You near!
Whenever I repent, You forgive me,
What a feeling to be burden-free!
The power of Your grace helps me to bear,
All my troubles, my worries and my cares.
So sufficient is Your amazing grace,
‘Twill carry me till I meet You Face to face!
The power of Your peace deep down inside,
This awesome peace within me does abide!
No one, no where, can ever take it away,
Once You give it Lord, it is there to stay!
I praise the power of Your guiding light,
Showing right roads, making pathways bright!
In You Lord, there is no darkness at all,
Your Hand lifts me high each time that I fall!
Your great power may to many seem strange,
But, Lord I’m so grateful that You cannot change.
For You promise a “mansion” high above,
Lord, I claim it, by the pow’r of Your love!

YOUR THRONE OF GRACE
Your Throne of Grace, I’d dare not approach,
For my sins are to You, a horrid reproach.
But my loving Saviour, made a way,
For me to come to You, night or day.
I now can approach, Your wondrous Throne,
For Christ Jesus, my sins did atone.
I now can come to You, with no fear,
And I know my pray’r, You’ll surely hear.
Your Throne, Father, what an awesome Place,
Where You bless us, with Your amazing grace.
You always have time to hear my plea,
No matter my plight, You always hear me.
Your Throne of Grace, gives me joy down deep,
Your mercy and love, I covet and keep.
The peace I have, deep inside my soul,
Comes from knowing, You are in control.
Humbly I come to Your Throne of Grace,
My sinfulness, makes me hide my face.
Dear Lord, so holy and pure are You,
I’m so unworthy, of Your love so true.
Great love on Your children, You bestow,
As we walk here, on this Earth below.
A blessing, and a privilege indeed,
From Your Throne of Grace, grand things proceed.
For Your grand love, I’ll praise You each day,
And thank You, that You won’t turn away.
I’m truly grateful, for Your Throne of Grace,
Indeed it is, a most awesome Place!
