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. 

Must

Ashes to ashes,
And dust to dust,
Not in chariots or horses,
But in God we trust,
For horses perish,
And chariots rust,
So faith in Christ,
Is an absolute must!

MT 2022

Psa 20:7  Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God. 

Reason

If anyone in the universe,
Has a reason or right to boast,
It’s Jesus Christ the King of kings,
Who rules the heavenly host.

If anyone has a reason or right,
To be praised to the uttermost,
It’s God the glorious Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

MT 2022

1Pe 3:15  But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 

Already, Not Yet

Those who are born again in Christ
Who a second time are reborn,
May find weeping endures for a night
But joy comes in the morn.

Those who are born again in Christ
And given the second birth,
Will live in His presence forever
When His kingdom reigns on earth.

Those who are born again in Christ
Will be wholly transformed and made new,
Into the image of Christ the king
By the Lord who is faithful and true.

MT 2022

2Co 3:18  But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 

Php 3:20  For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 
Php 3:21  who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. 

Verily, Verily

His power is almighty,
His riches beyond belief,
His wisdom is verily absolute,
His strength brings eternal relief,
His honor is pure and perfect,
His glory is heaven’s true light,
His blessing is from the Father’s hand,
His presence puts evil to flight.

MT 2022

Rev 5:11  Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 
Rev 5:12  saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

One Worthy

Worthy, worthy, worthy
Is the resurrected Lamb

Glory, glory, glory
Is the wisdom of God’s plan

Holy, holy, holy
Is the eternally great I AM

Mercy, mercy, mercy
Is His wondrous gift to man

MT 2022

Rev 5:13  And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

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,
