My Life

I present to the Lord my life
After all, He gave it to me
Of course, I have freedom of choice
I could do with it what I wish

But to keep it would be wrong, so
I present to the Lord my life
I submit to His perfect will
And I trust Him to get me through

For so long I went the wrong way
Years of lost darkness now must end
I present to the Lord my life
The Prodigal Son has returned

To the safety of loving arms
Communion with the Only One
Never more to roam in darkness
I present to the Lord my life

His Love

His love will never fail
Though we fail Him each day
We fail to walk His way
We fail and fail and fail
His love for us prevails
He’ll take our sins away

He loves with love supreme
There is no greater love
A love from God above
A love above extreme
Too much love it would seem
Can there be too much love

He is the only One
God’s love comes through His Son

A Warning From God

When our lives are so full of everyday worries
And we can't slow down 'cause the world's in a hurry,
We're so afraid we'll get trampled by the speeding crowd
And we haven't the courage to quit, 'cause we're proud,
We wonder when this madness will end.

When we deal with our mate and the kids aren't the best,
And it looks more and more like we're flunking life's test.
When we feel like our efforts are all wasted in vain,
Is there no one who cares or will share in our pain?
All we need is a word from a friend.

As we get older and our health starts to fade,
Neglected because of all the sacrifices we've made.
Giving so much to others that we've forgotten ourselves,
We dare set and wonder if we've done our part well.
Or do we wish we could do it again?.

Then there comes a time when it piles on so thick
That our systems shut down, and we think we've been licked.
But it's just a little warning from the Good Lord above,
Telling us to slow down and reconnect with His love.
We should listen, or it could be our end.

No matter how God chooses to communicate,
We'd better realize it's Him, or it may be too late.
He may pinch our heart, or take away someone dear.
Or he may put us out of circulation for a year.
These are warnings from your best friend.

So, don't blame life's troubles on the Lord.
He's just trying to get you back in His Word.
All He wants is for you to bring yourself back to Him.
He will hear your cry for help and forgive your sin.
And you'll be back where you belong, again.
