Grace Through and Through

By grace through faith in Christ alone,
God blesses with justification,
And by the Holy Spirit’s power,
God works for our sanctification,
And when we see the Lord on high,
He’ll bestow on us glorification,
And we’ll worship and praise His holy name,
For his wondrous gift of salvation.

MT 2022

Rom 3:24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 

Allegiance

I pledge allegiance,
To the cross,
Of Jesus Christ my Savior,
And to His blood,
Which was shed,
To redeem people,
For the glory of God,
Three in One, indivisible,
With grace and truth,
Toward all.

MT 2022

Mat 26:28  For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Joh 1:17  For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Enrolled

For many years
I lived under God’s wrath,
Then I met Jesus Christ
And He showed me the path,
From the road to perdition
To the streets of gold,
And in the book of life
My name is enrolled.

NKJV
1Th 5:9  For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

Welcomed Relief

Man of Sorrows
Well acquainted with grief
Sinless and faultless
Yet condemned like a thief
Changed human history
Though His time on earth brief
Mends broken lives
From sin’s sting brings relief.

MT 2021

1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 
1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

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. 

Lending a Hand

A dollar clutched tightly
Never fed the poor,
And a key withheld
Never opened a door,
So will we pass by
Our fellow man ignore,
Or lend a hand
And their dignity restore.

MT 2019

Gal 2:10  NKJV
They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do. 

Sowing

Many might think me less a man,
For the myriad tears I have shed,
But I remember my Savior-King,
Who wept at the tomb of the dead.

The world might think it weakness,
To cry out from the depths of the soul,
But I will continue to pour out my heart,
To the God who can cleanse and make whole.

MT 2019

NKJV Psa 126:5  Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.
