Home to Us



You gave birth to the mountains
Yet You bend low to hear our prayers
Satisfy us in the morning
With sweet tastes of Your unfailing love

Cuz You are home to us
You are home to us
Satisfy us in the morning
With sweet tastes of Your unfailing love

How high are Your ways!
I cannot trace Your paths
How high are Your thoughts!
I cannot do the math
For my small brain to realize the infinite
Of this Holy Perfect Penitent

Cuz You are home to us
You are home to us
Satisfy us in the morning
With sweet tastes of Your unfailing love

Cuz You are home to us
You are home to us
Satisfy us in the morning
With sweet tastes of Your unfailing love

Prodigal Daughter

Two jobs just ain’t enough to get through
To get through to you
You say your life isn’t tough
But I don’t believe you

You hide behind your smile
Protesting all the while
Saying, “There’s no way in Hell I’m ever going home”

You say, “They don’t love me anymore.
They don’t love me and I’m sure of it;
This time I quit.
They don’t love me anymore.
They don’t love me and I think its time
That I just run away from this.”

You hide yourself like a treasure in a field
One day the King will come and find you
You’ve buried yourself,
like a pearl at the bottom of the sea
Saying, “Oh, you’ll never find me here.”

But He loves you enough to call you the Kingdom
He loves you enough to call you His Bride
He loves you enough to call you the Kingdom
Oh, won’t you come step inside?

Cuz He loves you more
He loves you and I’m sure of it
I’m sure of it
He loves you more
He loves you, and I think its time
You stopped running away
I think its time I stopped running away
I think its time
We stopped running away from Him.

Philippians 1:21
“For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

The most noble of causes in which one could participate is this- to lay down ones life, that love may triumph over evil, light over darkness- for this was modeled to us by Christ, for whom we live and for whom we die.

End’s Beginning
How can the Heart of God be known?
Can I see it?
Touch it?
Feel it?
I want to climb inside of your embrace,
so that I’m floating off the floor.

My walls are blank,
they’re yours to fill,
paint them the color of your will.

I’m holding sand,
it slips through my hands.
The clock counts down- but you wear the crown-
the time is on YOUR table.

There is a flowing river
I sit beside,
I cannot leave it, for it gives me life.

The dawn is breaking,
introducing a great awakening.

If I have no wants or desires apart from Him then Satan can’t convince me that God is withholding from me. The Lord knows everything I need and His heart is to provide it for me. The Lord does not withhold from me, He gives me all good things. He does not give me scorpions, even though I sometimes unknowingly desire them. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. If I must want, it should be for His presence, and if I must desire, it should be that I would be filled with His Word.

A friend told me to rejoice in the darkness. Ah yes!

To Africa

to africa by: Theresa Fagundes
with hopes to cure
hopes to conquer
hopes to endure
to wade through the suffring
cast some hope on the ground
take the hand of the hopeless
allow hope to abound
plant hope in their eyesight
grow hope from the trees
eat hope at the table
feel hope in the breeze
i found hope at the sealine
at the black african shore
i stepped into the ocean
and ached only for more
i felt hope on the mountain
whipped around by the winds
hope bout knocked me over
forgot all my sins
stood at that summit
tried to soak it all in
sun burnt me discreetly
more hope’s never been
just erupted from inside
Volcano of hope in my chest
just erupted all over
spilt out on my breast
come, momma, take some hope from me
i know this isn’t all you’ll ever be
come, baby, take some hope from me
i hope this isn’t all you’ll ever be
if i could pass you the world

just pass it right through

i think good things would happen

if the world was with you

cuz your heart’s just like gold

and i hear what you say

about going to learn

and coming back someday

to spread a little hope

and share what you know

so your people can hope

so your people can grow

if i could open the world

just peel it open for you

believe me i’d do it

i’d cross oceans for you

You are my Help

God is angry with sinners
His wrath rests upon the wicked
How many times, how many ways can I fail Him?
How many times, how many ways does He succeed!
I’m depraved, I’m depraved without Him
I’m depraved, I’m depraved without You
Jesus, Jesus, You are my Help

You are my Help
You are my Help
And whom have I in heav’n but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. (Psalm 73:25 NASB)

Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right man on our side,
the man of God’s own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabaoth, his name,
from age to age the same,
and he must win the battle. (A Mighty Fortress is Our God, Martin Luther)
Jesus, Jesus, You are my Help

You are my Help
You are my Help
(But) in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37 NASB)

For all the times I stuck my foot right in my mouth
For all the years I just depended on myself
I lift my eyes to the One who is my Help
I lift my eyes to the One who died, was buried, and rose again

When the lawless one is revealed
The Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of His mouth
He will bring him down to nothing
By the appearance of His coming (2 Thessalonians 2:8)
Jesus, Jesus, You are my Help

You are my Help
You are my Help
And whom have I in heav’n but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. (Psalm 73:25 NASB)

Aslan

Don’t stop your crying on my account
A frightening lion, no doubt
He’s not safe, no he’s not safe
Are you tempted now to run away?
The King above all Kings is coming down

But He won’t say the words
you wish that he would
Oh, he don’t do the deeds
you know that He could
He won’t think the thoughts
you think He should
But He is good, He is good

I know you’re thirsty, the water is free
But I should warn you, it costs everything
Well, He’s not fair, no He’s not fair
When He fixes what’s beyond repair
And graces everyone that don’t deserve

No one knows Him whom eyes never seen
No, I don’t know Him but He knows me
He knows me, He knows me

Lay down your layers, shed off your skin
But without His incision, you can’t enter in
He cuts deep, yeah He cuts deep
When the risk is great and the talk is cheap
But never leaves a wounded one behind

But He won’t say the words
you wish that he would
Oh, he don’t do the deeds
you know that He could
He won’t think the thoughts
you think He should
But He is good, He is good
