About the Author

The Lord’s Shower


Love you like a flower
Blooming every hour
Awaiting the Lord’s shower
From his strong mighty tower

The Lord is my bread
From which I’m fed
I hold on fast
To him who does last

Gaze on the Lord


I can’t afford
To be without you
O’ Lord

My gaze is on you
Loving what you do
My God, I adore
You, evermore

Stand in the Fight


Draw my sword
For the Lord

Stand in the fight
For what is right
Let God’s might
Spread like light

Feeling his hands
Upon these lands

The Grace


God’s grace
I do embrace
Through each maze
Seeking his face

Through it all
I climb the wall
Accepting his call
Standing so tall

Free


We are torn
Since being born

Jesus hung on a tree
Making us free
New life he gives
And he lives

Asking


Be there
I do ask
Please care
Accept the task

Be aware
Of me, Lord
Everywhere
Hear me, Lord

Strain My Ear


I, so strain my ear
In order to hear
Your words and ways

In you, there’s no fear
For you, God are near
In all my days

On Board


On board with God
I care how you see me
For I love thee, Lord
Your heavenly ship awaits me


Setting out to your holy sea
Where your world begins
Mine ends

Love Everywhere


God, I cannot escape you
Your love is everywhere
You wrap your arms around me
Showing that you do care

Thank you for Jesus
Our friend, confidante
Who does please us
In his loving ways

Jesus Saves


Jesus is alive
This I know
For the Bible
Does say so

Every one of us
Jesus does save
The ways for us
He does pave

Find God


Near the edge
Sunlight everywhere
A gentle breeze
Goes through my hair

Thoughts of hope
Escape my mind
Trusting in the Lord
I search and find

Walls are Down


The walls come down
Letting you in
My Lord, my God
Forget my sin

Make me new
Healing the hurt
That overwhelms me
Wash away the dirt

Lean on Jesus


Sitting there
Torn apart
Feeling worn
From the heart

Leaning on Jesus
He is so near
Feeling his love
Fleeing is fear

God Sent Help


Where can I go
To hide from your love
You are everywhere
Sent from above

A God-sent help
Who does care
How I’ll turn out
Life as fair

Rely on Jesus


Give me a sign
That you care
I can’t take much
This load, I bear

I give it all to you, Lord
Casting all cares upon you
Relying on Jesus
And his steadfast love too

Never Ends


Love comes and goes
The love of the Lord stays
Fulfilling our needs
Brightening our days

Lasting forever
God’s love never ends
Being light to us
Ever, He sends

Rejuvenate Me


Help me, I say
Help me, Oh Lord
For I am sad
And ever bored

Bring new things
Stir my mind
Help me enjoy
What I do find

Rid of This Pit


I hurt Lord
And you know it
Please do something
To rid of this pit

Free my sadness
Let loose the chains
Of this torment
Let loose the reigns

To let me be normal
Feel and so be
To enjoy life again
And so be free

To worship you in earnest
With my whole heart
Glad and happy
To so impart

Out of Sadness


I am bored
Need you, Lord
Jesus help me
Out of sadness
Into gladness

Take me out of the blue
I reach out to you
Hold my hand
Drive out my fear
Come so near

God is My Peace


You are my peace
My everlasting hope
That does not cease
Helping me cope

God, forever you care
How I do fair
Your love so rare
Nothing can compare

Always the King


Always, my Lord
Love thee, King
Be there, Lord
Under my wing

Come near, O Lord
And I’ll sing
Forever, O Lord
My voice will ring

Seek His Favor


I need to be held
By my Savior
No one but Him
I seek his favor

Handing Him my worry
For the Lord’s peace
Trying to be free
And let pain cease

All I Have


All I have to give
Is for the Lord
All I have to live
Is for my Lord
All I have to say
Is for the Lord
Each and every day
Is for the Lord
Each and every way
Is for the Lord
Loving him with praise
Is for the Lord
During life’s phase
Is for the Lord

What Can I Say?


What can I say?
Jesus knows best
For my life
He does the rest

Every day I must
Seek him with care
Trusting in his love
Always, everywhere

He is the Way


Day by day
He is the ray
Say what you may
He is the way

Pray to Him
When things are dim
Rejoice in our Savior
Seek always his favor

No End


Love is very freeing
God’s love is not bound
It knows no end
Such it is found

Give all to him
Who guides your path way
Trusting in him
Believing day by day

Close to Him


Choose God and love
There is no other way
Pray continually
Is what I say

Listen to the Lord
Choose His ways
Stay close to Him
All your days

Dwell Here


Fill me Holy Spirit
Please come here
Dwell in my life
Be ever near

Guide me in the right
Teach me God’s ways
Holding me tight
For all of my days



His Sacrifice



Sacrifices for sin
In the past
To be forgiven
Cleansed at last

Jesus, died for us
Though we are dross
In our sinful ways
He hung on the cross

Giving us a relationship
With Yah-weh
The veil was torn
Providing a doorway

To be with God
In his loving care
Not harmed at all
Nothing can compare

God, the Creator



Creator of the universe
Magnificent and great
Making his work of art
While we wait

For his blessing upon us
Fulfilling our need
To feel forever loved
And special indeed

Praise the Lord
Mighty is He
The author of creation
And all that will be
