Steadfast

In joy and sorrow,
In pleasure and pain,
In sunshine and dark night,
In blue skies and rain,
In poverty and riches,
In losses and gains,
Jesus Christ remains steadfast,
His love never wanes.

MT 2022

Joh 16:33  These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” 

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.

Promises

You promised to never forsake us,
You promised to stay by our side,
You promised to redeem and remake us,
You promised Your love would abide.

You promised eternal life to us,
You promised to shepherd if we roam,
You promised You would go before us,
You promised a heavenly home.

You promised we could call on You always,
You promised we can call You our friend,
You promised you would make You home with us,
You promised us life without end.

MT 2022

2Pe 1:4  by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 

Falling Short

There is a stairway to heaven
But no it cannot be bought
By the silver or gold of sinners
No matter how hard it is sought
For we all fall short of the glory of God
Each and all, the whole human lot
So God sent His Son to pay our sin debt
And help us to learn what He taught.

MT 2022

Rom 3:23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 
Rom 3:24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

Who Is This?

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
On a cold, crisp winter morn,
The one foretold by a prophet,
Of a virgin would be born.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Born the King of the Jews,
Whom shepherds came to worship,
And wise men paused to muse.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Whom Simeon worshiped with joy,
Lifting his voice up loud and clear,
To praise Mary’s baby Boy.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
The One true Savior and Lord,
Born of David’s royal line,
By heaven and earth adored.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who deserves all honor and glory,
The author and finisher of our faith,
The perfection of God’s love story.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who has come to make all things new,
The sinless, blameless Lamb of God,
The Word of God faithful and true.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To reconcile God and man,
Conqueror of sin and death,
Fulfilling God’s master plan.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To usher in lasting shalom,
By crushing the serpent’s cursed head,
And leading His children home.

MT 2021

Mat 2:4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.  2:5  So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:  2:6  ‘BUT YOU, BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDAH, ARE NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE RULERS OF JUDAH; FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME A RULER WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.’ ” 

Unbearable


Christ gives liberty to the captives,
Is a compass for the lost,
He is shelter from the fiercest storm,
When our lives are tempest-tossed,
For His mercy knows no boundaries,
And from heaven to earth His grace crossed,
To fulfill the glorious, ancient plan,
And to bear the unbearable cost.

MT 2021

Mat 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” 

Luk 24:26  Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 

Expectation

I see Your beautiful handiwork
In Your glorious diverse creation
And Your amazing love and abundant grace
In Your wonderful gift of salvation
And one day all will praise Your name
Every tribe, tongue, people and nation
So may we be ready at the trumpet sound
Filled with faith, hope and great expectation.

MT 2021

NKJV
1Pe 1:20  He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 
1Pe 1:21  who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
