His Presence

Undeserved mercy,
Unbelievable grace,
Have met together,
In one holy place,

At the cross of Christ,
Where God suffered and died,
The grave is now empty,
And death is denied,

For sinners now welcomed,
To Christ’s wedding feast,
From the richest to poorest,
From the greatest to least,

At His table is joy,
And His love will not fail,
For His anthem is peace,
That will ever prevail.

MT 2022

Psa 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. 

Exo 33:14  And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 

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.

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?” 

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. 

What If…

What if the diverse beauty we see,
Did not happen by random chance?
And the stars in this vast, grand universe,
Are a beautifully choreographed dance?

What if a Creator truly exists,
Who made you and knows your life story?
And died in the place of the human race,
And rose again to reveal His glory?

What if He offers an eternal choice,
That determines where you’ll live forever?
A place of unspeakable love and shalom,
Which nothing can lessen or sever.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 8:3-4

NKJV Psalm 8:3-When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 8:4  What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

Faith Well Placed

Don’t put your faith
Don’t place your trust,
In a son of Adam
Whose end is dust,
Or in earthly treasures 
That corrode and rust,
Nor this broken world
With it’s lies and lust.

But put your hope
In Christ the King,
Who left His throne
To feel deaths sting,
And rose the third day
New life to bring,
And now reigns on high
Rejoice and sing!

MT 2019

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NKJV

[3] For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, [4] and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

Gain

The Prince of Peace
Did not suffer in vain
He traded earthly pain
For Eternal gain
While the Lamb of God
On the cross was slain
Now Judah’s Lion
Has ascended to reign.

MT 2019

Revelation 5:5 NKJV
[5] But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
