Amazing Grace my heart does sing
Of the wonderful love of my Lord and King.
He took my sin, my pain, my pride,
And gave me new life now glorified.
In Him I find rich treasures abound
As I search in His word, His voice resounds.
He speaks of the depths of His glorious love,
And revaeals the heart of Our Father above
To abide in His presense, to sit at His feet,
I gaze in His face and feel His heart beat.
Oh glorious wonder, how can it be
That the God of the universe lives in me!
His awesome wonder I behold all my days,
As I learn His will, I'll walk in His ways.
My Jesus my Savior always will be
By my side, in my heart, forever in me.
I'd like to have a little time with you.
Oh I know you're busybut this will only take a minuteor two.
It seems at the end of the dayI've
left so much undone,
Been out in the world, playing with my toys and having fun.
There are some things I'd like to have but
you know me, how I forget
I made a list and I know you'll see that all the needs are met.
First, I need love. I need enough love that
I can love my enemy
And enough left over for all the needs of my family.
I need patience as I wait for you my Lord,
As I go through life's battles, using your Word as my sword.
I need strength, strength enough to get me
through it all
And your loving hand to help me up
if ever I should fall.
Oh Father most of all I need faith so I can
get my life in order.
I want to heal the sick, raise the dead, and walk out on the water.
I'd like to ask that you bless some people,
all those who are sick and in pain.
Bless the homeless and the downtrodden. Bless the children in Jesus name.
Wisdom and understanding, I guess they
kinda go together,
Oh don't think I'm not grateful Father I'll love you forever.
Well, I guess I've taken up enough of your
time, as I said I know you're busy as can be,
But when you get through blessing all those people dear Lord
Baby in a Manger
He was a baby in a manger, that came for you and me.
Lived His life completely, To die upon a tree
Another could not do it. He alone the Living Word.
The baby in a manger, is Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus, baby beautiful to behold.
Christ the Messiah, stories foretold.
Prophesied and promised, given and received,
My heart belongs to you, yes Lord I believe.
What can I give to Him, He gave all that He had for me
From glory to humanity, He came to set us free.
How do you see Him, a baby or a king?
What will you give Him? Oh give Him everything.

In seventh grade, life was good.
I was a good Christian, I did as I should.
I had no troubles, I had no worries,
When I went through Jesus, I was never in a hurry.
I had innocence, I had not a fear.
Eight grade came, a completely different year.
I thought I'd experiment, and have a little fun.
Too much of this "fun" and I was on the run.
What had become of my new life?
So scary I always carried my knife.
Ninth grade came, rebellion was my game.
Thought I couldn't change, thought I'd stay the same.
I wanted things back the way they used to be.
I wanted to feel like I was in seventh grade.
I was depressed thinking, "Look at this life I've made."
Tenth grade came I knew I needed a change.
I decided to go to this place
This place with Amazing Grace.
I went to this place with an open mind.
I went to Jesus and watched my bad life be left behind.
Now I feel innocent I have not a fear.
Life is good, I'm doing what I should
I have no troubles, I have no worries
I feel like I'm back in the seventh grade

Dear Lord you brought him into my life
In such a beautiful way
Through the joining of a love;
Through the miracle of birth.
You made him perfect
In every possible way
Flawless and unique
As special as the dawn of day.
Two bright eyes to see
The beauty of your creation
A nose made sensitive to smell
Your fragrances so sweet
A brilliant mind to think with
You Words to proclaim
A mouth to speak your love with;
To share, to bear, to care.
Two long arms to hold onto
This life he holds so dear.
And hands to touch and feel
And make his love so real
A heart so big and loving
Always ready to share
His love and care
With loved ones everywhere.
Oh Lord you gave him
You showed him how to love
You gave him strength and power
Wisdom and knowledge from above.
Please hold him close to your heart,
Never will you depart.
You will always be there
To protect him from more than he can bear.
Empower him with your Holy Spirit
Cast away his doubts and fears
Squeeze him tightly in your arms
Never from him depart.
As his loving father
I leave him in your care.
My heart is now at rest
For your plans are always best.
I trust you to choose
The way the you desire
Either to heal him with your power
Or take him to be with thee.
All I ask this day
Is to let him be at peace
Remove his pain and suffering,
Keep him happy and free.
Shower him with love.
Empower him with strength
Fill him with Your Spirit
All glory to our God above.
I had it all, without a care,
the "Self-sufficient" lie.
My path was smooth, my sea was still,
not a cloud was in my sky.
I thought I knew His love for me,
I thought I'd seen His grace,
I thought I did not need to grow,
I thought I'd found my place.
But then the way grew rough and dark,
the storm clouds quickly rolled;
The waves began to rock my ship,
I found I had no hold.
This ship that I had built myself
was made of foolish pride.
It fell apart and left me bare,
with nowhere else to hide.
I had no strength or faith to face
the trials that lay ahead,
And so I simply spoke His name
and bowed my weary head.
His loving arms enveloped me,
and then He helped me stand.
He said, "you still must face this storm,
but I will hold your hand."
So through the dark and lonely night
He guided me through pain.
I could not see the light of day
or when I'd smile again.
It was not easy in the storm,
I sometimes wondered why.
At times I thought, "I can't go on."
I'd hurt, and doubt, and cry.
But Jesus never left my side
He guided me each day.
Through pain and strife, through fire and flood,
He helped me all the way.
He worked it all out for my good,
although the way was rough.
He only sent what I could bear,
and then He said, "Enough."
He raised His hand and said, "Be still!"
He made the storm clouds cease.
He opened up the gates of joy
and flooded me with peace.

At the gates
Mountain top Memories
lay behind me
you believe in God
Soon Forgotten behind
Do you believe in God
Not by me
On my own I cannot stand
Find my sufficiency
Find my ability

what He has done
in that which He promises
Do you believe in God
He believes in you
