Life Is So Busy

Life is so busy, no time for much prayer. I am just running and filled with despair.

No Room

Man, you resist God, His calling, Stilling His voice every day;

Lost

Lost I cried out in repentance 'Lord, please have mercy on me Lost I cried out in repentance 'Lord, please have mercy on me All that I ask is Thy pardon That Thou would'st save, redeem me' Outside the cup seemed so perfect But it had darkness within 'Till the bright light of Thy gospel […]

How Can It Be?

How can it be that I should be Sought by almighty God? How can it be that I should be Sought by almighty God? This black, deceitful heart of mine Washed by his precious blood? My sins line up in vivid hue, I shrink in horror, shame, Can they be blotted out by God, Cleansed, […]

No Greater Gift

There was no greater gift that God Could mercif'ly bestow, There was no greater gift that God Could mercif'ly bestow, For in his Son he gave His all To sinners here below There was no humbler place to be That first great Christmas morn, For midst the donkeys, fodder, food, The King of Kings was […]

He Came Alone

He came alone, To pay for sin, He came alone, To pay for sin, Mankind to save, Salvation win, To drink the cup, For you and me, That hour in dark Gathsemane God satisfied, Through him at last, For all our sin, On him was cast. That you and I, Could be set free, Becaus […]

The Master Potter’s Work

The Master Potter's work cries out, Behold his hand was here, The Master Potter's work cries out, Behold his hand was here, 'Tis only he could make us thus, The evidence is clear. ~ Jenny Daniel

It Was for This

In the brevity of time out of the endlessness of eternity, In the brevity of time out of the endlessness of eternity, A miracle From the glory of Heaven into the crudeness of a manger! A baby–still From the Creator of the world and throne Supreme Despised, rejected, mocked thy God hath been And from […]

How Sad

The town was full, no room was found for the simple village maid The town was full, no room was found       For the simple village maid No wonder then–on straw it was       The babe was gently laid. The town was full of busy men,       All busy doing things. No wonder then, they […]

Can I Ever Pen?

Can I ever, ever pen The eyes from which no judgment came? John 8 Can I ever, ever pen The eyes from which no judgment came? Sorrow for my sin I saw Oh to stumble never more Knowledge of my sinful life Every cause and every strife Sadness at my fallen state Yet He will […]

They Are Without Excuse

Dear God-Thy infinite power and might Shine forth from the world’s upon our sight Dear God-Thy infinite power and might Shine forth from the world’s upon our sight Just a word-and the heavens were put in place With the sun, moon and stars suspended in space Not a fraction too close-not a fraction too far! […]

Didst Thou Know?

Didst thou know, oh Bethlehem       When travelers bustled by Didst thou know, oh Bethlehem       When travelers bustled by That one still night–The mighty God       Would in thy borders lie? No room–O town of Bethlehem       He owns each hill and den Yet in thy stable manger       Begins His walk with men […]

How Sad That “Few Are Chosen”!

The world doth teem with throngs of men The marching feet drone on The world doth teem with throngs of men The marching feet drone on And small the little band who tread Amidst this mighty throne Their clothes are white–God’s righteousness Through faith, their only shroud Oh mighty is the grace that God So […]

Thy Blood, Thy Grace, Thy Love

I saw the saved ones gather       On Heaven’s blessed shore I saw the saved ones gather       On Heaven’s blessed shore There stood a wondrous multitude       Who’d found salvation’s door But who are these who days ago       Were drowning in their sin? And now they are Christ’s Holy Bride       All cleansed […]

They Did Not Turn

How many times in humble prayer With calamities–sore hard pressed How many times in humble prayer With calamities–sore hard pressed Our nation called on Almighty God In mercy, supply and bless Surely He’ll answer speedily Just humble yourself today My child, My word commands you To TURN as well as pray. ~ Jenny Daniel

The All-Sufficient One

A Rock within the raging storm To shelter you, to keep you warm A Rock within the raging storm To shelter you, to keep you warm A Burning Light in darkness black To show the way, to call you back The Living Bread to feed your soul To give you strength, to make you whole […]

But Your Iniquities

Isaiah 59:2 Beloved land, Your God hath mighty Hand With power to deliver At His great might and power All other forces quiver No task too big for Him to deal On wrong a deathly blow Beloved land what then the cause For this dire state below? Beloved land your God hath ear That never […]

Condemned

Though man was made by God’s own Hands Condemned, condemned he surely stands “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.” –John 3:17 Though man was made by God’s own Hands Condemned, condemned he surely stands For he who darkness chose–not […]

Perfect Love

Oh can Thy word still be fulfilled With fear my courage has been stilled Oh can Thy word still be fulfilled With fear my courage has been stilled I cannot hope – I cannot see How Thou canst make it true for me Ah, “Perfect Love” cannot instill Fears, doubts beneath His sovereign will It […]

What Is Man?

Ah what is man, that thou should’st come       And die on Calvary? How could a Holy God endure       That awful agony? That He who lived a sinless life       Should drink the ‘cup’ for me? Endure the very guilt of sin       And die to set me free? Lord Jesus, ‘Babe of Bethlehem’ […]

How Could You?

Ah world, how could you turn your head       When Jesus came to Earth Ah world, how could you turn your head       When Jesus came to Earth Ignore–despise–the miracle       The wonder of His birth? How could you close your stubborn ears       To all He had to say How could you blind your […]

The Altar is Broken

The altar is broken–no longer they care For God–or His will–or His word–anywhere The altar is broken–no longer they care For God–or His will–or His word–anywhere. They’ve smashed every semblance of kneeling to Thee And naught of the altar is now left to see Then filling their lives with things all impure They drink of […]

His Steadfast Love

I will proclaim His steadfast Love That sought me long ago I will proclaim His steadfast Love That sought me long ago And in this timid heart of mine The seed of faith did sow The Love that brought repentance And sorrow for my sin The Love that swung the narrow gate And GLADLY let […]
