Rest and Rely

While it may not be very popular,
And will cut to the heart as well,
I believe Christ died on a cross
To save us from sin, death and hell.
I also believe He rose from the grave,
And in glory now reigns on high,
That His word is eternal and absolute,
On these truths I can rest and rely.

MT – 2020

NKJV Act 2:37-38
[37] Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” [38]  Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

Tender Counselor

God’s Sovereign right hand,
Rules in earth, sea and sky,
While that same tender hand,
Wipes each tear that we cry,
We may not understand,
The how, what, when and why,
But His will will be done,
Here and now, by and by.

MT – 2020

NKJV Psa 33:10-11 
[10] The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. [11]  The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.

Mercy

I owed Him ten thousand talents,
A sum I could never repay,
But the Lamb of God cancelled all my sin debt,
When He went to the cross that cruel day.

For the mercy of God met His justice,
And neither could be set aside.
But the Father’s mercy triumphed in Christ,
When the Prince of life suffered and died.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 86:5 
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You. 

Sufficient

Your grace is sufficient,
Is ever enough,
When the path is dark,
And the road gets rough,
Your grace is a beacon,
Of radiant light,
In our gloomiest hour,
And our darkest night.

MT 2019

Joh 1:16  And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 

The Soul’s Sole Defender

He paid the price we could not pay,
One we could never render,
By dying once He died for all,
Humanities sole defender.

The Lamb of God was put to death,
Victorious in His surrender,
Was even with His dying breath,
Humanities sole defender.

He’s the Great Physician, heavens balm,
The soul’s perfect healer and mender,
He took our sin upon Himself,
As humanities soul defender.

MT 2018

NKJV  Psalm 103:1-2  Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

Surety

Christ’s lavish love washing over me,
Bathed in His goodness and purity,
Cleansing my eyes to clearly see,
His kingdom and power with clarity,
His cross my salvation and surety,
I am His for all time and eternity!

MT   2018

NKJV John 15:9  “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

Tapestry

Time may heal
But the scars remain
And the Master Artist
Mixes joy and pain
Into life’s rich tapestry
And while I can’t explain
He makes both work for good
And our eternal gain.

MT   2018

NKJV  Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
