Precious beyond
All earthly compare
The blood my God shed
Saved man from despair
To release Satan’s prisoners
Who were held in cruel sway
At the cross won the victory
Ushered in a new day
One day lion with lamb
Will frolic and play
And a child will lead them
God’s shalom on display.

MT 2018

NKJV  Rom 16:20  And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Even Though

They scorned Him, mocked Him, called Him names,
And did not believe His works or claims,
As He raised the dead and gave sight to the blind,
And was merciful, gracious, good and kind,
Though they deemed Him deserving of a cruel death,
He forgave their hated with His dying breath,
For they knew not the gravity of what they had done,
By killing God’s precious and dearly loved Son,
But to all who draw near with a repentant heart,
He gives abundant mercy, and a brand-new start.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

So…

He knew He would have to take,
Our wretchedness and sin,
Upon His sinless body,
So that we could enter in,
To His Father’s holy presence,
So He gave us day for night,
And let darkness fall upon Himself,
So that we could be clothed with His light.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

To Be Emmanuel

So many live as captives to fear,
In a broken world that needs to hear,
That God is with them and God is near,
He is Emmanuel.

For this world is dying we can see its decay,
But we can change someone’s night to day,
All it takes is for us to be bold and say,
He is Emmanuel.

For God so loved  the world of mankind,
That He came down from heaven to seek, save and find,
And now God and man are forever entwined,
He is Emmanuel.

For He died, rose again and now reigns on high,
Believe even though it’s a mystery why,
Christ would suffer the cross and for sinners would die,
To be Emmanuel.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

 

Black and Blue / Walk

Black and Blue

Piercing nails and crown of thorns,
The flesh torn from His back,
The Father could endure no more,
And turned the blue sky black.


Walk

Christ delivered us out of darkness,
Into His marvelous light,
And what He asks us in return,
Is walk by faith and not sight.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Light Cross

Oh the thought that the Holy One dwells in me
Is a blessing beyond all compare,
It makes the work light that He calls me to do
And the cross that He calls me to bear.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016

Authority – Light in the Shadow

Authority

When we abide in the Lord Jesus Christ,
We can speak with the utmost authority,
And when we stand fast in His Holy Word,
One plus God is a landslide majority.


Light in the Shadow

Identify the enemy’s lie,
A good friend said to me,
Bring it captive to Jesus Christ,
And His truth shall set you free.
See the darkness- flee the darkness,
Run to the light instead,
Abide in the shadow of Calvary’s cross,
Where God’s precious blood was shed.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
