Forever Satisfied


Oh bread of life I come to you in hunger
We come to eat and we are satisfied
Oh living water, for you we are thirsty
Here in your presence we would for e’re abide

From all that Jesus is we will drink and feed
This is very thing thing that makes us whole
This is the source that meets our deepest needs
That satisfies the longings of the soul

Once  filthy and unclean
But now  to sin we have died
This is what believing means 
We are forever satisfied
Forever satisfied, forever satisfied
We are forever satisfied!

In the presence and promise of Jesus we will trust
This unfailing  fountain overflows our needs
Then living water flows out from our  hearts of dust
It lasts forever and to heaven leads

Once  filthy and unclean
But now  to sin we have died
This is what believing means 
We are forever satisfied
Forever satisfied, forever satisfied
We are forever satisfied!

John 7:37–39; John 4:14 , John 6:35

Wait for the Lord

When you seem to reap a whirlwind 
you never sowed to the wind
And the storm of doubt assails you 
And foundations seem to bend
Remember God is FOR us 
His faithfulness won't flinch
A bruised reed he will not break,  
and a wick he will not quench.

The sun of righteousness shall rise 
'Neath these healing wings we hide
Let his promises blow through each window 
In each Heart that opens wide
He will lift up your humbled head  
And fan your spark into a flame
The Spirit of Encouragement 
On your heart shall lay its claim

Wait for the Lord; be strong, be strong,  
take courage in your heart today
wait for the Lord! wait for the Lord!  
And He will show the way.
Wait for the Lord; be strong, be strong, 
 take courage in your heart today
wait for the Lord! wait for the Lord! 
And He will show the way.

Gods goodness and His mercy 
shall follow all your days
We know not what were spared from 
as we walk His narrow ways
As we walk a long obedience 
we shall surely come to see
When the troubles and the trials come 
the truth shall set us free

Wait for the Lord; be strong, be strong,  
take courage in your heart today
wait for the Lord! wait for the Lord!  
And He will show the way.
Wait for the Lord; be strong, be strong,  
take courage in your heart today
wait for the Lord! wait for the Lord! 
And He will show the way.

Hope of My Future


When I take my final breath
When it comes my time for death
The grace of God I will clearly see…
This truth will stand there by my bed,
Whether sooner comes in later's stead
Your mercy and your kindness embrace me

And when I come to die
On this I can rely
The grace of his kind mercy guards deaths door
Infinitely tender hands
Will lift me up to the promise land
Where I will dwell with God forevermore

Bridge-Hope of my future, and all I believe
the power to serve and the good sense to grieve
Those who weep will surely reap
A harvest of souls before we leave

So when it comes that day
When the race is run I pray
That you will visit me with tender grace
Then I will come to see
Through all eternity
The hope of glory when I see your face

Mercy and Kindness


I want to know you as you know me
You know my every thought and deed
mercy and kindness is what you show me
mercy and kindness is what I need

I pray your grace will come to grow me
Till from my selfish ways I am freed
mercy and kindness is what you show me
mercy and kindness is what I need

Longsuffering and patient you embrace me
Lord you are so good to me
You will convict, convince and face me
With the truth I need  to see
When your discipline corrects my way
Give me grace to understand I pray
For your mercy paves a way  to victory

Lord in your kindness you bestow me
With every blessing youve decreed
So undeserving, nothing is owed me
But mercy and kindness is what I need

I want to know you as you know me
You know my every thought and deed
mercy and kindness is what you show me
mercy and kindness is what I need
Mercy and kindness is what I need
Mercy and kindness is what I need

You are God and There is No Other

You are God and there is no other
Forever and ever your counsel shall stand
You will accomplish all your purpose
You will  complete your sovereign plans

You are unchangeable in wisdom
According to your purpose it shall be
Nothing shall befall your beloved children
That is not for our good and for your glory!

For You are in ultimate control
Over every bird that falls and every soul
You do whatever  you please
Time flows from your decrees
For you alone have set its final goal

Your will for us will be completed
Creation trembles at your command
Your design for us can’t be defeated
For none can stay your mighty right hand

For You are in ultimate control
Over every bird that falls and every soul
You do whatever  you please
Time flows from your decrees
For you alone have set its final goal

Oh What a Hope!


This is my boast- that I know You
This is my boast that I understand
You are revealed as Faithful and True
Now on this Truth I take my stand

In the fullness of time
In the fullness of Grace
Covered in the blood of Christ
We shall see your Face

This is my hope – that you have known me
This is the hope that sees me through
You died for me so you could set me free
Now heaven’s hope is found in You

In the fullness of time
In the fullness of Grace
Covered in the blood of Christ
We shall see your Face

Oh What a hope, so tried and tested
What a bless-ed hope -ere I live or die
This is the promise where I’ve rested
On your faithful love I can rely

You Are the Light




You are the Light that shines in this darkness
Tho I am surrounded you still deliver me
You are my rock and my only salvation
Your light shines in me for all the world to see.

Who is like you oh Lord?
Whose word is like a two edged sword?
I am a remnant of the fall
You are the mighty Lord of All

You are the glory power and might
You are the God of births and graves
I’ll bask forever in Your light
You have the only Name that saves

Bridge:
As I lick my wounds you provide a balm
As I ride this storm you create a calm
For You will safely see my through
Your Light will show me what to do!

Whatever God calls you to do
Whatever mountain you must climb
He’ll give the strength to see it through
He lights the way through troubled times

You are the glory power and might
You are the God of births and graves
I’ll bask forever in Your light
You have the only Name that saves
