Hold Fast



Hold fast your hope-Cling to it to the last
God's gift is the enabling power to hold fast
Hold fast your hope-Your will before Him cast
For Christ renews our mind-With the desire to hold fast

Hold fast to the Father Who holds your very tears
He holds the world together and so we may draw near
He holds onto your right hand firm unto the end
Our hope is in our keeper- Held fast, hold on to Him

Hold fast your hope Today ands in the past
Yet he fulfills his will in us And sees our strength hold fast
Hold fast your hope with assurance sure and vast
Triumph exhorts us ever on And calls us to hold fast

Hold fast to the Father Who holds your very tears
He holds the world together And so we may draw near
He holds onto your right hand Firm unto the end
Our hope is in our keeper Held fast, hold on to Him

Look Away


We are shadows, we are echoes
Craving praise and flaunting pride
But the emptiness in our souls
Will ne'er be satisfied.

If we are getting pleasure
From our own sufficiency
And not seeking truer treasure
Lord- we need to be set free

Look away, look away, look away from your self
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your treasure and your wealth
Look away, look away, look away from this world
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your priceless pearl

There is nothing more beyond,
He is the end of our quest
There is nothing better,
Christ is all of the best...

His presence and His promise
Fulfills all our desires
Now we are not dominated
By the chains that sin requires

Look away, look away, look away from your self
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your treasure and your wealth
Look away, look away, look away from this world
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your priceless pearl

If from Christ we feed and drink
He satisfies our soul-thirst
Beyond all we ask or think
If we will seek Him first

Look away, look away, look away from your self
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your treasure and your wealth
Look away, look away, look away from this world
Look to Jesus Look to Jesus as your priceless pearl

In Your Sweet Sweet Presence


I love to dwell in your sweet presence
In the light of your glory to bask
Hid with Christ in this holy residence
Abide with me, dear Lord, is all I ask

We are your temple Lord where you dwell richly
We are the tabernacles of your grace
Yours are the courts where we can all live boldly
Here at your throne we see you face to face

Here in your sweet sweet presence
My poor soul is satisfied
With blessings beyond all I ask or think
At the free flowing fountain of grace I will drink
And forevermore I will abide.

We live in You you live in us
As we hope and trust and confide,
You fashion our clay and transform our dust
As in your presence we abide.

You are our pillar of cloud each day to guide us
Pillar of fire, illuminate our night
Lord to your wounded side you draw and hide us
For you were pierced that we might see Your light!

Here in your sweet sweet presence
My poor soul is satisfied
With blessings beyond all I ask or think
At the free flowing fountain of grace I will drink
And forevermore I will abide.

Boldly to your throne room we enter in
To live in this divine dwelling place
Built by the blood that you shed for men
A finished work accomplished by Your grace

Here in your sweet sweet presence
My poor soul is satisfied
With blessings beyond all I ask or think
At the free flowing fountain of grace I will drink
And forevermore I will abide.
Here where you take me to your side
Forevermore I will abide.

Your Word


It is not by power, not by might
That the victories of this life are won
It is walking in the word which is the light
By the sword of the Spirit it is done

By this sword the worldly flesh we kill
By this sword we re protected in the war
It will pierce our feelings and our will
Through its precepts, the battle is the Lord’s

Your word I have hidden in my heart
That I might not sin against You
Your word I have hidden in my heart
For Your word is faithful and true

Your word you have written on my heart
My name you have written on your hand
By your word a living way you chart
That your child can begin to understand

A lamp to my feet and to my path, a light
Dividing bone and marrow, defining wrong and right
Giving wisdom to the foolish
And to blind men giving sight
Your word, Lord, your word

Your word I have hidden in my heart
That I might not sin against You
Your word I have hidden in my heart
For your word is faithful and true

Your word you have written on my heart
My name you have written on your hand
By Your word a living way you chart
That your child can begin to understand

Bridge
Heaven and Earth shall pass away
But Your Words will never pass away

A lamp to my feet and to my path, a light
Dividing bone and marrow, defining wrong and right
Giving wisdom to the foolish
And to blind men giving sight
Your word, Lord, your word.
