Nothing In Return

When I think of what amazing love

Giving Your life to save me

Punished, crucified, placed in a tomb

Just so I could be free


You arose in full glory

Sit at God’s right hand in heaven above

Praise you for my salvation, and Your example

To give glory to God in the way that I love


To follow God’s will for others in my life

Take God’s word and use what I learn

To give love the way that You did

Freely and expect nothing in return

Family And Friends

Lord I come to you in prayer

At the beginning of a new day

I ask You pour out Your blessings

Upon these for whom I pray

With Your love flows through me

A love that never ends

 I pray for friends who are my family

And family who are my friends.

Under the Blanket

Not yet morning as I awake

I love the sense You are there

With an urge to follow Your example

I enter into quiet peaceful prayer

I pray for family and dear friends

And those You placed before me on my way

My heart filled with joy and excitement

For I know You hear me as I pray

I pray for things that trouble me

In this world full of evil and sin

Yet I am not anxious, my Comforter

You open Your arms, I enter in

What peace through prayer I am given

Up the mountain high or valley deep

Under the blanket of blessed assurance

I joyfully fall back to sleep…

 To Sing A Song

To sing of how marvelous it feels

Sitting with Him on mountain high

Or the sense of His presence

In a beautiful morning sky

To sing a song filled with thanks and praise

That speaks of what I feel deep within

Of how my Savior shed His blood

Cleansed me of my sin

To sing of the perfect example

Of how Jesus walked the earth

Or the grace He had in store for me

Long before my birth

To sing this song to glorify His name

May the words ring loud and true

So that this deep love I have for Him

Is revealed in all I say and do…
