Strong in the Lord

Eph. 6:10 - Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (NIV)

How humbling used by Thee,

Why oh God, do You speak to me?

Some read the words You say,

Eternal value in price did pay!

Brothers and sisters the world all around,

Many without holy word You still ground.

Lord You are perfect in all Your ways,

Please teach wisdom numbering days.

Showing battle is not mine lacking power on own,

Only in Christ's strength victories find.

Spirit guides steps for You such ease,

Walking in Your heart, greatly pleased!

Holy Lord this is much too much,

Loving so great You came to touch.

Direct words and hands to bring your glory,

In trust can tell Jesus story.

Lord and Savior He is the One,

Life eternal found in the Son!

Heavenly Father, You are mindful of me,

Why dear Lord, you hung on a tree?

All to ransom even just one,

With furious rhapsody calling all come!

Precious Lord You set us free,

Do not squander calling, remember Me!

If found in Christ victory won,

Run in the Spirit, run free run.

Lord laid low in universe so large,

Pleased to endow peace at no charge.

I am here go out into the lands,

Take courage then make your stand.

The cross of Christ broke death's curse,

Rise up oh man, rejoice in mirth!

Preach Christ for men to come,

A measure of hope leaves none.

Into My arms bringing many along,

Called much deeper singing heaven's song.

Jump, clap, dance, appear before Me,

Blessed of the Father, Jesus we'll be!

Overwhelmed as My ocean swells,

Living water quenches no need of a well.

Drink of My grace,

Drown in My Love!

Once thinking broken beyond repair,

Never in Spirit release grief, now no despair.

I restore and love above wildest dreams,

Never alone in Christ, needs met need no schemes.

Guard heart and mind in Christ Jesus alone,

Father, Son, Spirit, Lord God melting hearts of stone!

 All my saints brighter than sun,

Now sitting beside my throne, it is done!

Dear children I pursue after you,

Whisk away above sky so blue.

Sit and gaze now in paradise,

Look at My hands, heart and face.

Never imagining how heaven would taste,

Falling deeply now, into My embrace!
