Bridge

The road that I travel has many chasms deep
But I have a friend who neither slumbers nor sleeps
And when the troubles come
He's the one, He's the one I'll stand on
He's my bridge, oh He's my bridge

The mountains may be high ones, the valleys may be low
But He's the one I'll depend on wherever I may go
For when the troubles come
He's the one, He's the one I'll stand on
He's my bridge, oh He's my bridge

For when the troubles come ...

From death to life
He's my bridge, oh He's my bridge
Through the day and the night
He's my bridge, He's my bridge
He's my bridge, He's my bridge

My burden's light

Matthew 11 v 28-30

Come to Me, all you who labour
And are heavy laden - I'll give you rest
Take my yoke upon you and learn of me
For I am meek, lowly in heart
And you shall find rest for your souls
For My yoke is easy, My burden light, My burden light

My yoke is easy, My burden is light

My yoke is easy, My burden is light

Come to Me ...

Come to Me ...

Come to me, all you who labour ...

My burden's light
My burden's light

Whatsoever things

Philippians 4 v 8

Whatsoever things are lovely
Whatsoever things are pure
Whatsoever things are noble
I'm gonna think on these things

Whatsoever things are gracious
Whatsoever things are true
Whatsoever things are just and right
I'm gonna think on these things

I'm gonna think about Him, gonna think about Jesus
Gonna think about Him, gonna think about Jesus

For there's nothing so pure as the love that He has for me
Nothing so true as the care that He shows
Nothing so noble as the way that He died for me

Whatsoever things are lovely ...

Whatsoever things are gracious ...

And sing my praises to Him, sing my praises to Jesus
Sing my praises to Him, sing my praises to Jesus

For there's nothing so lovely as the way that He cares for me
Nothing so pure as the love that He shows
I'm amazed at the grace and forgiveness that He offers me

Whatsoever things are lovely ...

Whatsoever things are gracious ...

Psalm 23

The Lord's my Shepherd
I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures
He leads me beside
The waters of peace
Renews the life within me
For His name's sake
He guides my path
Although I may walk through death's valley
I'll fear no evil
For thou art with me
Thy rod and Thy staff are my comfort

A table before me
Thou hast prepared
In the presence of my enemies
And Thou hast anointed
My head with oil
My cup is running over
For goodness and love
Shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I shall dwell
In the house of the Lord
For evermore

For goodness and love ...

Artist's hands

Here in this sunny room I'm drawing a landscape
Plucking pencils from a pot
If I listen hard and make my mind up
Into a tight white dot
I can reach out, unfurl my flattened fingers
Softened through lack of use
And stretch for the colour of grass

In the early days my mouth was zipped up
My hands gasped like flapping fish
Looked at all the colours, trying to reach out
Pencils dropping from my fist

Again, again I tried
And many times I cried
Wondering if I
Would even once succeed
For many hours and days
The white and empty page
Stubborn beneath my gaze
Just looked back mockingly

Here in this sunny room I'm drawing a landscape
Colours rolling on the page
For now my hand is strong, rocks are spotted with purple
Eagles crown the mountain tops
I can reach out, unfurl my flattened fingers
Softened, through lack of use
And stretch for the colour of grass

My pictures aren't my own
For they're not done alone
I know the One
Who colours them with me, colours them with me
I sign them in His name
The One who healed the lame
For He has done the same
And set my fingers free, set my fingers free

Artist's hands, artist's hands
Each day I thank the Lord for my artist's hands

The fight's been won

Some things have happened in my life
That don't seem right
Don't seem right
And there've been times when truthfully
I almost gave up the fight

But there's one thing that you should know
I've found the One who'll never let me go
The fight's been won

When things are happening in my life
That don't seem right
Just don't seem right
I've learned to trust upon the One
Who's won the fight, won the fight

For there's one thing that you should know
I've found the One who'll never let me go
The fight's been won

Yes there's one thing that you should know
I've found the One who'll never let me go
The fight's been won

Thanks to God's Son
The fight's been won

Four walls

Four walls surround me, cold and bare
With memories of what once was there
Echoes of the past resound
Now only emptiness I have found

No sound except a ticking clock
Nothing to touch, no solid rock
I sit alone and guard my space
The world outside is too hard to face

No windows, and no ways to leave
The hours pass as I sit and grieve
No worse place, no worse distress
Than this cold dark room and such loneliness

Four walls, four walls
I sit alone in these four walls

Moment by moment ticks away
I face another grey and dismal day
Not daring to hope my worry, hurt and pain
Might pass away and I'll be free again

Four walls, four walls
The loneliness of these four walls
Four walls, four walls
Please help me Lord in these four walls

Then through the darkness comes a light
Dim at first, but now burning bright
I feel such Love and see the Saviour's face
He is with me in this holy place!

Four walls, four walls
I'm not alone
In these four walls!
Four walls, four walls
My pain has gone
In these four walls!

I'm not alone
In these four walls

Big God

It only took a moment
One moment was all it took
From nothing everything was made
He spoke and it happened
His word was all it took
One word, and everything was made

It only took one word from Him
And all that was made was made
The planets and the galaxies
The whole of time and space

He's a big, big God
He said it, and it was
For God is a big, big God

It only took a moment ...

It only took one word ...

He's a big, big God ...

It only took a moment
One moment was all it took
From my sorrow, everything was changed
He spoke and I answered
His promise was all it took
My life would never be the same

He's a big, big God
He promised, and it was
For God is a big, big God

He's a big, big God ...

Meet me in Heaven

I, I'm living in this world at the moment
I'm … still living in this world for the moment
I, I've tried to run the race that I've been given
And I, I know the place where I am heading
Very soon now I'll be moving on
Yes very soon now my troubles will be gone
For very soon now I'll be with my Lord
Very soon now I'll be in heaven

I've had trials, I've had tests up to this moment
But I have always known His help until this moment
And very soon now I'll be on my way
So it leaves me just one last thing to say
In the future I hope you'll meet me in heaven.

In this future that we've been freely giv'n
Will you meet me, meet me in heaven?
I'm living in this world at the moment
I'm still living in this world for the moment
I, I've tried to run the race that I've been given
And I, I know the place where I am heading
Will you meet me, meet me in heaven?

I am content now, He's chosen for me
It is my time now, He goes before me
It is my hope now, while I'm still breathing
That you will follow where He is leading

Meet me in heaven

My peace

John 14 v 27

My peace I give to you my child
Not as the world gives do I give
The peace I give you is for life
Everlasting life

So don't you struggle, and don't you worry
No don't you struggle, just put your trust in Me

How will you know it is My peace?
You will know deep in your heart
And as you put your trust in Me
My peace will set you free

Free from struggles, and free from fear
So don't you worry, just put your trust in Me

Holy Spirit fill us now
Open our hearts and show us how
How to put our trust in you
In everything we do

Help us not to struggle, help us not to fear
Help us not to worry, help us put our trust in you

Make us free from struggles, melt away our fear
Make us free from worries, as we put our trust in you

The devil came to Jesus

Matthew 4 v 1-11

The devil came to Jesus in the wilderness
He knew that He was hungry, so this is what he said
"Just use your power to turn these stones to bread"
But Jesus answered Satan "You know the scripture says
Man cannot live on bread alone, for he must live instead
On every word that the Holy God has said
So leave me Satan, I will not be tempted"

The devil then took Jesus to the temple high
"If you are the Son of God you need not be alarmed,
Jump down to prove that you're safe in angels' arms"
But Jesus answered Satan "You know the scriptures well
You study them by day and night in your home in hell
It is forbidden to test the Lord your God
So leave me Satan, don't tempt the Lord your God"

Once again the devil took Him to a mountain high
And showed Him all the world in just the twinkling of an eye
"All this I'll give you if you'll only worship me"
But Jesus answered Satan "Be gone from me, be gone
The Scripture says you'll worship God and worship Him alone"
Then Satan left Him, he left Him on His own
When Jesus told him to straightaway be gone

Now when the devil tempts you he'll do it when we're weak
Whether it's by day, or even when you are asleep
He's out to get you, he's clever, he's a sneak
So just remember Jesus, remember what He said
Send the devil on his way and live your life instead
By every word that the Son of God has said
And tell the devil you will not be tempted

Pots of clay

2 Corinthians 4 v 7-9

We are pots of clay, pots of clay
Worth nothing in ourselves
But in our pots of clay, pots of clay
The Holy Spirit wants to dwell

Yes, we have this treasure in pots of clay
To show that God's all-surpassing Power
Is from Him, and not from us
Is from Him, and not from us

We are pots of clay …

We may be hard pressed on every side
But we will never ever be crushed
Perplexed we may be, but won't despair
For the Power is not from us

We are pots of clay …

Persecution may be what we endure
But He will not abandon His own
For thus His Power will more be shown
Thus His Power will more be shown

We are pots of clay …

Even me

Jesus I want to praise your precious name
You are my Lord, I want to worship you
You are the One who took my sin and shame
I want to spend my whole life serving you

Lord build your church by using even me
Small though I am, and weak, with you I'm strong
You are the cornerstone, my certainty
Leaning on you Lord, is where I belong

Lord in the difficulties help me through
You're my foundation, let me stand on you
Lord help me concentrate on you alone
Until the day comes when you take me home

Help me Lord, help me to see
How you can use even me

Jesus if I should once forget to be
Fully committed to your plan for me
Show me Lord Jesus where I've gone wrong
I want to serve you Lord my whole life long

Use even me
Use even me
Lord help me to see
How you can use even me
