The Violent

       Matthew 11:12 Yes, the Savior’s yoke is easy,       And His grace is free to all,But the careless don’t embrace it,        When they hear the gospel call. Though the will of man can’t birth it;        Cannot choose the kingdom’s course,Yet the violent—Scripture tells us—        Take it to themselves by force. If you’re […]

Not Ready to Die

The flower of youth though but recently fled,The sentence of death has been passed on my head.My heart is unwilling, my conscience can’t rest,My life’s not in order, by fears I’m oppressed,         ’Cause I am not ready,               Not ready to die. I know in my head […]

Inheritance in Light

            Colossians 1:12-20 We thank you, God, our Father,   For giving us the OneBy whom we’re made partakers   Of the kingdom of Your Son.You rescued us from darkness,   From Satan and his chains,And moved us to the kingdom   Where Your Beloved reigns. In Christ we have redemption,   Forgiveness of our sins,Through blood, the blood of […]

Don’s Testimony

My memories are few from the first years of life, But what I remember is feuding and strife.

The Narrow Way

The way indeed is narrow;  The entrance to it strait.

It’s Done

It's done. It is finished — and done once for all — The work of the cross that has torn down the wall;

Ressurection Song

Oh, do you believe in my Savior?       The One who arose fromt he grave?

Only One

There’s only one shelter and only one rest, There’s only one place I can go when oppressed.

Love to All

Create in this poor, struggling soul Too hard a case for Thee? Thy wisdom and Thy power flow In concert with Thy grace, And nothing is too hard for Thee— Nor I, too hard a case. No, not a thirsty soul is found Outside Thy loving sphere, Nor can outside Thy power to save A […]

He’ll Never Leave Me

Forsaken of God was his well-beloved Son, Condemned for my sin was the only pure One. Forsaken of God was his well-beloved Son, Condemned for my sin was the only pure One. He suffered alone, died alone on the tree, Love’s eternal object rejected for me. The pain and the anguish I hardly conceive, Affliction […]

The Bonds are Broken

The law of sin and death may reign, Increasing misery and pain,   Romans 6   The law of sin and death may reign, Increasing misery and pain, Where blinded men its bonds embrace, But God be praised who offers grace, And frees me from sin’s bitter claw, By issuing a better law— The law […]

Death and Life

The Father’s love is far too great      To be to heaven confined. The love He gave a worthy Son      Extends to humankind. No man deserves a share in that      Which God bestows in grace, And pours with all the wealth He owns      On our rebellious race. My […]

Dead in Christ

Dead in Christ and ris’n again; This the plan of God for men. Collossians 3: 1 – 5 Dead in Christ and ris’n again; This the plan of God for men. When we die, new life we find, Guilt and pain are left behind. Once he died for you and me, That from sin we’d […]

The Face of My Saviour

In the heat of affliction,       When bowed down with care, In the heat of affliction,       When bowed down with care, In my troubles and worries,       I pour out my prayer. Thus I cast on my Saviour       My burden of grief, And I find in His presence       The sweetest relief Oh, […]
