Together


-->
I will draw you close, never let you go
I will draw you close so that you will know
I will not forsake you,  I will never leave
Our souls are one, in the One in whom we both believe

Together God will weave us, together we are one
This world will not deceive us when the day is done
We will be together and together we will thrive
And we will draw together as long as we`re alive

You`ll draw close to me, I`ll draw close to you
Our bond is not of bondage, it sets us free to do
All that the Lord has called us for, beyond what we can dream
For we have found a love that’s found in the Love supreme

Together God will weave us , together we are one
Ths world will not deceive us when the day is done
We will be together and together we will thrive
And we will draw together as long as we`re alive…

Glory to His Name!

Here at the cross where my Savior died,
Here where for cleansing from sin I cried,
Here to my heart is the blood applied;
Glory to His Name!

Come and be wondrously saved from sin,
Christ will forever abide within,
Come to the cross, He will take you in;
Glory to His Name!

Refrain:
Glory to the Name of Jesus,
Glory to His Name!
Here at the cross he saves and frees us
Glory to His Name!

Christ is the fountain, salvations stream
Drink of your fill now and be redeemed
Here Jesus saves us and keeps us clean;
Glory to His Name!

Come to the fount at the mercy seat,
Come cast your soul at the Savior’s feet;
Plunge in today, and be made complete;
Glory to His Name!

Refrain:
Glory to the Name of Jesus,
Glory to His Name!
Here at the cross he saves and frees us
Glory to His Name!
Glory to the Name of Jesus,
Glory to His Name!
Here at the cross he saves and frees us
Glory to His Name!

Sinkiller



Search me oh Lord and shed your light
Upon the pillars of my sin
Give me strength and grace to fight
And bring the ceiling crashing in

Show those pillars sharp and clear
Their columns holding up my walls
This fortress built of sins and fears
Rain down on it until it falls

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse
us from all that is unrighteous.

Reveal the evil enemy
Convict me of presumptuous sins
Refute their dominion over me
I would look them in the eye and win

Till every moment, every breath
I plot to murder what I hate
I would put them all to death
Broken under glory’s weight.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse
us from all that is unrighteous.

Psalm 19; 1 John 1:9

Remind Me


Simple truths are fleeting, they are like the air we breathe
We forget so easily  the  truths that we believe
And so we must remind ourselves lest we should be deceived
And so I call to mind, time after time
I rehearse the simple truths I know  and  assurance is retrieved

“This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
His mercies never come to an end.”
And as this dawns on me my faith increases.

Lord remind me of who I am
Remind me of Who you are
That all things have a plan
And heavens not so far
That you are good all the time
That I’ll reap what I sow
The battle is in my mind
So remind me of what I know

I remind myself of Truth again, lest I should  be inclined
To act as if I never knew the facts the Spirit has defined
The greatness, grace and wisdom of God I call to mind
I focus on the facts, and then my soul reacts
For once reminded I return to seek and find

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
I will ponder all your work, and meditate
Then your mighty deeds my heart shall behold”

Bridge
Ignorance is never  bliss And knowledge can be part of this
If arrogance and pride Within our hearts reside
We act as if we don’t believe And so the Holy Spirit grieves
We just can’t seem to find The grace to set our mind.
We are the cause of our own strife when we slight the way, the truth and life
With man it is impossible But with God all things are possible
For what He wills will come to pass Though our plans are like the grass
They wither and they fail But the Word of God Prevails!

Lord remind me of who I am
Remind me of Who you are
That all things have a plan
And heaven is not so far
That you are good all the time
That I’ll reap what I sow
The battle is in my mind
So remind me of what I know
