You Are My All

When I felt really torn, not sure of what I needed,

To the right and left I turned,

And yet I never found it.

Then I heard a still small voice, saying,

"Come, I have what you need."

So then I struggled, and made the choice

To follow You, wherever You would lead,

So now...

When I don't know what to do,

I will turn to You.

You're the answer I'm looking for,

You are my Lord.

And when I don't know where to turn,

I still know what I've learned,

That You are my strength, my comfort,

My song,

You are my all...

One Night in Laodicea--Lyrics

Verse 1:
One night, a Stranger passes through our city, the city of Laodicea,
To see who is prepared for eternity –
Prepared for the day that will come as a thief in the night.
Here and there is a candle lit, here and there a lamp burning
With the holy oil of the Spirit, in a house, in a heart.
Hot with heavenly flame, shining brightly for Jesus’ name –
These watch for the heavenly King,
And also for the enemy.

Verse 2:
Now as the Stranger passes from house to house, knocking at every door,
The faithful recognize Him as their King –
The One they have been waiting for, during darkest hours of night.
He hardly passes through their gate, as they hasten to the door.
For Him to knock they do not wait; they open right away.
He brings purified gold, and bestows upon young and old
His gifts of eyesalve and raiment,
That they may see and be holy.

Verse 3:
The King quietly makes His departure, passing through the midst of the city,
But those who have kept their watch follow Him.
He lives in their hearts, so they choose to stay by His side.
Soon they reach the outer walls, where the watchmen are sleeping.
The faithful try in vain to wake them, but He says they must go.
They make their way to a mount, where in sorrow, they look down
To see their city besieged by the army of the enemy.

The King, beginning to weep, cries in sorrow and pain so deep,
“What more could I do than I’ve done,
To save them from their chosen fate?”

Choose to Stand - Lyrics

Verse 1:
If you’re sinking in the mire,
And you think you’re lost,
What does the Lord require?
Oh, what is the cost?
There’s something you must do, but not on your own.
It is through the Lord Jesus, by His grace alone,
That you can be saved and from sin be released,
And God will give you real true peace.
Verse 2:
If you’re just so tired of trying
To get through on your own,
You are on yourself relying;
You cannot walk alone.
Just let Jesus lead you everyday.
He will teach you what to do and what to say.
He will soften your heart and renew your mind.
Through Him true happiness you will find.
Verse 3:
If you think you can’t go higher
And there’s just no hope,
Just in faith look up to Jesus
And hold tight to His rope
Through faith you can keep journeying on;
In the strength of Jehovah you will be made strong.
In temptation and trial, just pray to the Lord.
Put forth effort and take Jesus’ sword.
Verse 4:
If you have that deep desire,
But you just don’t have rest,
And you want the Spirit’s fire,
That you may pass the test;
Through faith you can surrender to Him.
Wearing all of God’s armour, the battle you’ll win.
As you fight in this war, Jesus stands by your side;
Choose to stand in the power of His might.

By His Grace - Lyrics

Verse 1: By His grace, I’m growing; and I see Him sowing. By His grace I will grow, and more of Him I will know. CHORUS: By His grace, by His grace, I believe that Jesus is everything to me. Verse 2: By His grace, I’m learning, as my heart is yearning. By His grace, I will learn; always to Him I will turn. Verse 3: By His grace, I’m living; in the truth He’s giving. By His grace, I will live; as I receive, I will give. Verse 4: By His grace, I’m talking; in His Spirit, walking. By His grace, I will walk; and more of Him I will talk. Verse 5: By His grace, I’m running; and each sin I’m shunning. By His grace I will run; until the race is all done. Verse 6: By His grace, I’m singing; as in His arms, I’m leaning. By His grace, I will sing; to Jesus Christ the King if kings.

All I Need Is You - Lyrics

Verse 1:
O Lord, I love You, I love you now. I must do Thy will, somehow
But on my own, Lord, there is no way, but with You Jesus, I really may.

O Lord, You are amazing, and Lord, You are so good to me!
O Lord, You are almighty, and all I need is You!

Verse 2:
O Lord, I need You, I see it now, I lean on You Lord now.
I can move forward with You each day, because Lord Jesus, You are the Way.

Verse 3:
O Lord I want You to lead me on, to be my Vision, all day long;
And help me follow where You will lead, because Lord Jesus, it’s You I need.

Verse 4:
O Lord I see You, You guide me life, You get me through all strife.
With my eyes on You through stormy wind, I see You leading me to the end.

As the Flower - Lyrics

Verse 1:
As the flower turns to the sun, and needs the clear rays of light;
So I turn to Jesus’ face, shining bright...
When I see His mercy and love, and His presence is known,
Then I find His promises true, and the darkness gone.

Verse 2:
As the flower’s roots in the ground grow deep down and are strong,
So I grow in Jesus’ strength, holding on...
To my Saviour’s powerful hand, Always growing in Him.
As I journey upward in faith, He will lead me to the end.

Verse 3:
As the flower needs water to live, and reach its fullest height;
So I live in Jesus’ love; He is life...
Jesus gives me freedom from sin; He’s the water of life,
So I drink and ne’er thirst again, for through Him I’m satisfied.

Verse 4:
As the flower fades away, and withers and dies;
So a life can pass away, any time...
Soon we find it doesn’t last long, but as life still goes on,
Let us choose to live for God, forever to Him belong.

He Is God - Lyrics

Verse 1:
Are your burdens so heavy, that you can not walk steady?
You carry them all, but you stumble and fall?
You don’t have to keep them; there’s Someone to take them.
He’s longing to lead you. He’ll relieve and feed you.

He is God, the awesome God of all. Won’t you hear His call?
Forsaking all your sin, give your heart to Him.
Don’t wait any longer, He will make you stronger.
Just give it all to Jesus. Only He can save us.
ENDING: He is God, there’s no reason to fear. He still holds you dear.
Don’t trust in any feeling, when the Lord is bidding
Give your thoughts to Him. He’s the Way to freedom.
He’ll strengthen your endeavors.
He is God forever.

Verse 2:
Is it hard to surrender, since you’ve been such a sinner?
You’ve hardened your heart; you don’t know where to start?
Don’t turn God away, You can start today.
Your heart He will soften, as you seek Him often.

Verse 3:
Are you sometimes confused, about what to do?
One person says one thing, another says nothing.
Jesus calls to you, “I know what to do.”
Just listen to Him calling, He’ll keep you from falling.

Verse 4:
Do you think you can’t make it, so you feel like you fake it?
You fear you are hopeless, and you just can’t get through this?
God truly can save you; He’ll never forsake you.
Although you’re not perfect, In His sight, you’re worth it.
