My Lord and King

I write to You my Lord and King

My words, my heart to You I bring

My greatest joy is when I write

When my words bring You delight

For I am yours and yours alone

I joy in kneeling at your throne

I sense your love and care for me

I’m overwhelmed the more I see

You have no equal, never will

Your presence all this world could fill

Your power far beyond all men

But yet You stop to read my pen

You Great King have called my name

A man so simple with no fame

And now you call me as a son

All because of what You’ve done

I write to You my Lord and King

And more and more these words I bring

Yet words alone cannot suffice

So hear my heart, my sacrifice

These words

These words all run together

But from them flows a thought

Amazing how God made us

What He alone has wrought

Our words can bring Him pleasure

Our words can bring Him joy

Our words can bring a smile

He can our words enjoy

Sit down and take a pencil

And write a note today

Tell Father that you love Him

Write it just your way

For He will understand you

And He will hear your heart

And you will joy in knowing

Your word to Him is art

He’ll hang it on His freezer

And read it with a smile

He’ll show it to the angels 

And love what you compile

According to His plan

Our King was born a baby

And grew to be a man

Fulfilled all of Scripture

According to His plan

He came to be a Savior

He came as Guide to man

He spoke the truth in love…

According to His plan

He was unjustly punished

For every sin of man

He paid for every one…

According to His plan

He rose again from death

Surprising hell and man

Bringing resurrection 

According to His plan

Our King was born a baby

To die more than a man

He rose to bring us life

According to His plan

Majestic Mighty Maker

Majestic Mighty Maker

Of land, of sky, of sea

Of stars that float in heaven

Of every galaxy

My Kind Creator King

What power You possess 

What goodness fills your heart 

What joy in those You bless

My Loving Living Lord

Who came to set men free

Who reaches out to men

Who reached to even me

My Sinless Servant Savior

Who stood to take my place

Who died to give me life

Who offered me His grace

The Glorious Grace of God

Has touched my heart and soul

Has given me new life

Has made my spirit whole

No other greater

I come into your presence

Oh Great and Mighty King

There is no other greater

Of which this world could sing

You are the Great Creator

The Maker of mankind

There is no god that’s greater

This world could ever find

You are the Great Redeemer

Who sent His only Son

There is no ransom greater 

He our salvation won

You are the Great Restorer

The One who gives much more

There is no One that’s greater

Who has so much in store

You are the Greatest Father

To all who come to You

Never will one be greater

And that I know is true

Lord here I am again

Lord here I am again

My King on bended knee

I bow my heart again

My Lord take all of me

Now once again I give

All that I am and do

A gift so very small

But just enough for You

I give You all I have

I give You all I’ll be

I give You all my love

Like You gave You for me

I give my life today

To serve before Your throne

I want to do Your will

And not to seek my own

Yes I will give to You

But as I go my way

I will remember this

You’ve given me this day

I pray for you, my brother

I pray for you, I my brother
Each and every day
I pray that God will form you
That He will have His way

I pray that He will grow you
In things before unknown
So that when you look back
You’ll see that you have grown

I pray He gives you wisdom
I pray you see things right
I pray that you are like Him
From morning until night

I pray that you are holy
I pray that you are kind
I pray that Christ is in you
And that’s what people find

Joy in darkness leaving

I joy in seeing darkness
Flee from the morning skies
The darkness leaves just colors
The joy of watching eyes

The sun then rises slowly
And shines its beaming light
Then everywhere it shines
It’s day and gone is night

But greater still is shining
God’s Son and heavens light
Who enters lives of darkness
Dispelling dark and night

Yet, much greater is my joy
To bring to men this light
Then watching darkness scatter
In beams of heavenly light

It’s my joy to watch the Son
Come rise in each man’s eyes
To see the darkness leaving
Just colors in their skies
