Awake! Arise!

“My kingdom has come!”  The Redeemer cries,
“Awake from your slumber and open your eyes!”
“You’re no longer a prisoner, come forth, arise!”
“You’ve been freed forever, my treasure, my prize!”

Mark Tinjum  2017

Ephesians 5:14 NKJV
[14] Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

Cling to the King / Open

Cling to the King

He’s a merciful God,
Heaven’s gracious King,

He rules by love,
He felt deaths’ sting,

He reigns on high,
Praise and worship bring,

As we trust and obey,
And to Jesus Christ cling.

Mark Tinjum  2017

Psa 116:5  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful.


Open

Christ’s death opened wide the front door,
Of my Fathers great heavenly house,
And I want to obey and honor Him,
As I live out the truth I espouse.

Mark Tinjum   2017

Joh 14:21  He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Changed

I serve the One so powerful,
He spoke everything into existence,
And changed my sinful stubborn heart,
With His gentle loving persistence.

Mark Tinjum  2015

Ezekiel 11:19 NKJV
[19] Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh,

 

 

 

 

Yet

So often I seek my own will and way,
Instead of God’s honor and glory,
Yet the Holy One uses even messed up me,
To play a part in His redemption love story.

Mark Tinjum   –   2017

1 Corinthians 3:9  NKJV
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

To Express / No Stains-No Chains

To Express

To tell of all that my God has done,
The glory of His dearly beloved Son,
No human words can fully express,
Christ’s gift of love and righteousness.

Mark Tinjum  –  2017


No Stains- No Chains

Only the blood
Of Jesus Christ
Can cleanse our deep
Crimson stains,
And only His rising
From the grave
Can free us from
Shackles and chains.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

To Live and Die

If I live I live to Christ,
If I die Christ I gain,
And when I see Him face to face,
He’ll erase my tears and pain.

Mark Tinjum   –   2015

Clay / Dust

Clay

I’m a poor weak foolish vessel,
A broken jar fashioned out of clay,
That God in His infinite mercy and grace,
Is patiently teaching His way.


Dust

We the ransomed and redeemed of the Lord,
Who in God place faith and trust,
Are earthen vessels, jars of clay,
Precious children and dearly loved dust.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
