Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage


This is what the Lord says: I will be with you

I’ll never forsake you I’ll never leave you

This is what the Lord says You can trust in Me

This is what the Lord says My power’s for the weak


This is what the Lord says The battle has been won

This is what the Lord says It’s all said and done

This is what the Lord says You have heard my Word

This is what the Lord says Now act on what you’ve heard


Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage


Bridge

You have gone before us

With all my heavenly hosts

You have gone before us

So in Your might we boast


This is what the Lord says If you will trust in me

I will go before you  And will give the victory

So we will don Your  armor  The shield,  and belt, and sword 

Your helmet, shoes, and breastplate And the battle is the Lord’s


Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

The Joy of the Lord is My Stronghold

May your Glory be my gladness

As You work my joy from sadness

This is part of your design

It will be an everlasting sign.

So may my joy be found in You

And shine forth in all I do

So for the Lord to make a name

His reputation  is my aim.


For the joy of the Lord is my stronghold

From His presence I will draw my strength 

I rejoice as His mighty works I behold

Till every soul shall Know His name at length


You are the fortress where I rest

The refuge where I am blessed

The power and glory I shall sing

As I abide beneath your wing

Turn our mourning into a dance 

As we see you in each circumstance

Then it will be understood

You work all things for our good


For the joy of the Lord is my stronghold

From His presence I will draw my strength 

I rejoice as His mighty works I behold

Till every soul shall Know His name at length

Lead Me Guide Me

Lead me guide me

You are here inside me

Under your wings hide me Lord

Grow me, show me

Only you can know me

With your grace oer’flow me Lord


You met me despite what I’d done

In spite of what I’ve been

You change me to look like your son 

And save me from my sin

Now with new eyes I clearly see

That’s the way I was meant to be


Mold me, enfold me

In your bosom hold me

Of your love You’ve told me Lord

Take me, break me

With your wonder shake me

From my slumber wake me Lord


You met me despite what I’d done

In spite of what I’ve been

You change me to look like your son 

And save me from my sin

Now with new eyes I clearly see

That’s the way I was meant to be


Lead me guide me

You are here inside me

Under your wings hide me Lord

Under your wings hide me Lord

Yield Not

Yield not, yield not to temptation

Yield not for yielding is Sin

Yield instead your will and be led

By the Spirit of the Lord Who lives within…


Yield not , Yield not to the culture

Yield not to the spirit of the age

Be conformed to the likeness of your Lord

He will be your joy while the nations rage


He will be your strength and shield

If your passions you will yield

He will be your power when you are weak

If His Lordship You will seek.


Yield not, yield not to the devil

Resist Him and you will see him flee

When he has heard you uttering God’s Word

For in Jesus you will have the victory

For in Jesus you will have the victory

For in Jesus you will have the victory


James 4:7, Psalm 28:7, 2 Corinthians 12:9, Romans  8:29, James 1:12-15

Oh Lord my God


Oh Lord my God, my Savior, King

My confidence,  to You I cling


My Prince of Peace, my All in All

My Counselor On You I call


You are my refuge Oh Three in One

You are my Rest, In You I’m blessed

To You I run.


Oh Everlasting Father, Immortal Son

Eternal Spirit, To You I come


Oh Lord my God, my Savior, King

My confidence, of Thee I sing.


You are my refuge Oh Three in One

You are my Rest, In You I’m blessed

To You I run.

Gospel Waters

For the sinsick soul, there’s a river 

Flowing down from Heaven’s throne

Gospel waters ever living

Streams of mercy are forgiving

Every sin that I have ever known


Baptize me within that river

Plunge me deep, there I would go

There You’ll wash away my Sin, 

Make me an old sinner has-been

For that River’s where the cleansing waters flow


Take me down (down down) to the river

Take me down (down down) and drown my Sin

Take me down (down down) to the river

In that Gospel water I’ll begin again.


Baptize me within that river

Plunge me deep- I’m born again

Gospel Waters wash and cleanse me

For to heaven Jesus sends me

Purify me on that road now I begin


Take me down to the river

Sink me in its undertow

Lord then grab me up and raise me

By your mercy you amaze me

But why you rescued me I’ll never know


Take me down (down down) to the river

Take me down (down down) and drown my Sin

Take me down (down down) to the river

In that Gospel water I’ll begin again.

King of My Soul

There are so many forces in the world today

That conspire over my heart to hold sway

But there is one Word that I would obey

I will live for the King of my soul.


I will live for the King of my soul.

I will yield to Him total control

I will bow my knee to His authority

I will live for the King of my soul.


There are so many distractions  that I can find

So many temptations that my heart would blind

So on the things above I will set my mind

I will live for the King of my soul.


I will live for the King of my soul.

I will yield to Him total control

I will bow my knee to His authority

I will live for the King of my soul.

I will live for the King of my soul.

I will live for the King of my soul.

Lord Have Mercy


Lord Have Mercy, Have Mercy

According to your unfailing kindness

Give us eyes of faith, heal our blindness

Show your light, show your light, 

Show your light to me.


Show your light, show your light, 

Show your light to me.


Show your light, show your light, 

Show your light to me.

My Faithful Friend


Well I blows my mind and it soothes my soul

I can say “Almighty God is my faithful friend.”


Omnipotent and in sovereign control

“Almighty God is my faithful friend.”


God almighty , holy one

Righteous Father and Savior Son

Holy Spirit help us overcome

“Almighty God is my faithful friend.”


Well it blows my mind when the day is done

He will lift me up and the victory’s won

I can say “Almighty God is my faithful friend.”

 “Almighty God is my faithful friend.”

Pilgrim Path

There is a pilgrim way, 

a way in which we go

A way to life a way through light

We travel here below


We walk a pilgrim path

We’ll walk and not grow faint

We walk, we talk and we will not balk

We sojourn here as saints


Step by step We are kept

By the keeper of our souls

We keep the  pace  by God’s grace

As eternity surely rolls


We walk a pilgrim path

No need to mark our trail

We will not return for our home we yearn

And our journey will not fail.

There By the Grace of God Go I



The Lord will keep you to the end

And then beyond through heaven’s gates

To that eternal holy land

Where our home fore’er awaits.


Of heaven’s joys I will sing

This shall be my offering

For there is nothing I can bring

To gain my entrance there


There by the Grace of God Go I

For He’s taught me what I need to help me die

Not just what he’s saved me from

But what He’s brought me to

And by His Grace He will see me through.


My only hope is in the Lord

For He tells me in His Word

He has written my name

On the palm of His hand

So He will Keep me safely there


There by the Grace of God Go I

For He’s taught me what I need to help me die

Not just what he’s saved me from

But what He’s brought me to

And by His Grace He will see me through.

Happy Tears

Lord give the gift of happy tears

Let them wash away my fears

As the Good News  my heart hears

Happy tears will flow


My hard heart melts within me 

As I ponder grace and glory

And when I fall down on my knees

Happy tears will flow


Tears of joy as  your Grace I apprehend 

I will weep for joy as mercy you extend

In your presence I am undone

As I realize what You’ve begun

Tears of joy flow in this glory once again

Happy tears roll down my face

As I contemplate amazing Grace

Happy tears begin to flow

As My Lord I come to know


I am struck with awe and fear

Tremble as you’re drawing near

In your very presence here

Happy tears will flow


Lost in wonder at your ways

As my soul begins to praise

Humbly I lift up my gaze

Happy tears still flow


Tears of joy as  your Grace I apprehend 

I will weep for joy as mercy you extend

In your presence I am undone

As I realize what You’ve begun

Tears of joy flow in this glory once again

Happy tears roll down my face

As I contemplate God’s Grace

Happy tears begin to flow

As My Lord I come to know

Touch Us With Your Glory

Oh the awesome touch of our dear Savior

Healing us, He draws us to His side 

His embrace will hold us in His favor

As we rest  and in His arms abide


The One who has infinite power 

The One with infinite authority 

With infinite wisdom and infinite love 

Infinite goodness and infinite purity

Nothing will ever keep us apart

For that very One indwells our hearts.


Touch our hearts, oh touch our hearts 

Touch us with your glory we pray

Touch our hearts, Lord touch our hearts

With your glory FOR your glory today


The wind of your Spirit it indwells us

So your touch will come from deep within

You abide in us as your Word tells us

To sweep us clean of all our pride and sin


Drench us with your living water

Burn us with your holy fire

Break us on the rock most righteous

Turn our hearts however You desire

Nothing will ever keep us apart

For that very One indwells our heart.


Touch our hearts, oh touch our hearts 

Touch us with your glory we pray

Touch our hearts, Lord touch our hearts

With your glory FOR your glory today
