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.

I Am Here / Was and Will Be

I am here, Lord
Help me hear, Lord

Please come near, Lord
Wipe my tear, Lord

Make me pure, Lord
Conscience clear, Lord

You’re the cure, Lord
No more fear, Lord.


Was and Will Be

I’m not who I was, nor who I will be,
I am someone and somewhere between,
The man that I see in the mirror looking back,
And the new man inside that’s unseen.

Mark Tinjum-   2018

1 Corinthians 15:49 NKJV
[49] And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

 

You and Yours

It’s You and Yours
Who redeems and restores,
It’s You and Yours
My heart truly adores,
It’s You and Yours
My soul seeks and explores,
It’s You and Yours
From which ceaseless grace pours.

Mark Tinjum – 2018

Romans 11:36 NKJV
[36] For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.
