No Merit

Amazing grace that You chose me

And called me to Your family

I stand amazed and here rejoice

For Your most loving gracious choice

It’s by no merit found in me

But only grace that You chose me

At last, from sin I find release

For You give freedom, joy and peace

No greater joy can mortal know

While living on this earth below

Than in this life to know your Son

And comprehend what He has done

Lord touch a life through me today

Please give me grace to share your way

May others know your grace through me

Then through your grace from sin be free

My Joy, His Will

What joy there is in worship

To kneel before my King

To share with Him my pleasure

To lift my voice and sing

No place on earth is greater

Than where I meet my King

Than where I meet my Savior

Than where to Him I sing

This earth though full of sorrow

This earth though full of pain

This earth though full of sinners

My joy cannot restrain

My cup is overflowing

My cup He’ll always fill

My cup for others flowing

To share my joy, His will

Where truth and love reside

So many go through life 

In search of truth and love

But most are looking down 

Not looking up above

And many things they see

They touch, they hold, they get

But none are truth and love

Just one more sad regret

There only is one place

Where truth and love reside

In God’s own precious Word

Where man is satisfied

The Truth came in the flesh

The Word became a man

For Love was who He was

God’s Son, the rescue plan

We now can go through life

Knowing God’s Truth and Love

Keep your eyes on Jesus

And all things up above

Marvelous mystery

Your precious selfless love for me

Is vaster than the greatest sea

No greater love can ever be

Than what You chose to give to me

My Savior and my Guarantee 

All started back at Calvary

In that dark place I bent my knee

And there was from my sin set free

Glorious joy You give to me

For more than from my sin set free

Your love is mine eternally

It is mine now, will always be

A Father and a Friend to me

A love so great, how can it be

That I am now a son to Thee

What a marvelous mystery

Memories of time 

Time ticks away in seconds

Soon seconds make a year

Years become a memory

As moments disappear

Eternity is different

No seconds will tick there

Yet the memories of time 

Will still be everywhere 

The memories you carry

To your eternal place

Which will you joy in sharing?

Or from your mind erase?

Now, will be a memory

Tomorrow at this time

Eternity stands waiting 

A constant paradigm

As time is slowly ticking

And passing all away

What is it that you’re doing?

Eternally today

Sing with me

Sing with me my brothers

Sing to our God with me

Sing for joy in Jesus

The One who set you free

Sing with me my sisters

Sing to our God in praise

Sing and join our chorus

To God your voices raise

Sing with me my children

Sing as you see me sing

Sing and I will lead you

Your praises to God bring

Sing with me all people

Sing on this earth with me 

Sing with joy forever

To God eternally 

We have a song to sing

So with us sing along

In each heart God has placed 

An everlasting song

The joy of Truth

The Truth I daily carry

So many do not know

No, it’s not for me alone

It’s mine to others show 

The Truth came down from heaven

To dwell in hearts of men

The truth dispels all darkness

A light where none has been

Not only gone is darkness

But light and life He brings

With death and darkness banished

My heart now freely sings

The joy of Truth in living 

The joy of Truth in me

The joy of Truth who changes

For Truth has set me free

The Truth I daily carry

Is Truth that carries me

One forever with the Truth

Now He and I are we

Of all You give to me

Only an earthly steward 

Of all you give to me

Not just of time and money

But life and energy

A steward of this body

And what it’s made to do

I’ll guide it and I’ll teach it

To follow only You

I’m a steward of the love

That flowed from Calvary 

Daily fill me with that love

So it will flow from me

A steward of the message 

Sent through your only Son

Is now my heart’s main message

I’ll share with everyone 

I’m a steward of the trust

That You have placed in me

I’ll be your trusted servant

That’s what I want to be

Then as an earthly steward

Of all You give to me

Good and faithful are the words

One day I’ll hear from Thee

My heart is full of praises

My heart is full of praises

For there You dwell within

You touched my heart and healed it

And cleansed it from all sin

My heart is full of praises

For there You dwell within

For Your mighty work of grace

Where can My thanks begin?

My heart is full of praises

For there You dwell within

Your Word, it fills me daily

Each day I there begin

My heart is full of praises

For there You dwell within

Your mercies new each morning

Where can my praise begin?

My heart is full of praises

For there You dwell within

I’ll praise You every morning

With joy invite You in

You are the Great Provider

You are the Great Provider

You are so good to me

You know each and every need

For all of them You see

You are the Great Provider

Your love fills up my heart

The greatest gift you’ve given

With which I’ll never part

You are the Great Provider

Your joy fills every day

Your joy brings satisfaction

When I have walked your way

You are the Great Provider

Your peace surrounds my life

It touches other people

My friends and kids and wife

You are the Great Provider

You fill my every need

And once again I thank You

This sinner that You freed
