He wants no less from us than mercy Mercy to each soul that comes along Don’t justify your harsh words or your temper Give mercy to each one and make them strong He wants no less from you than grace Grace that reaches everyone you meet Don’t justify your gossip and backbiting Just speak to everyone with words of peace He wants no less from you than forgiveness Forgiveness that will pardon every hurt Don’t justify your grudges and complaining Forgive each one who troubles your hard heart He wants no less from you than the truth Truth that speaks to everything in life Don’t justify your white lies and your fables Just speak with words of truth and you’ll survive He wants no less from you than great love Love that surpasses all who see Don’t justify your anger and repulsion Let love guide every word that you will speak These things and more we should do each day For Jesus came to show us the way These are the things He taught us to do Not go against them every day So guard your heart and close your mouth Let goodness flow from you Let your light shine for all to see In all you say and do.
It stands there tall and stately. A steeple up on high It stands there like a beacon that tries to show the light. But in many cases the light does shine no more They’ve softened up their preaching and opened up their doors . No more is Jesus offered as the Savior of the world Instead, a social gospel has replaced the given word Those who live a sinful lifestyle are told that they can stay They don’t have to leave their sin and live the righteous way It’s a sad testimony that rings around the world It’s a sad testimony of our Savior and our Lord But one thing that I know, and one thing that is sure The church will never fall to the darkness of this world As dead bones were restored to life before Ezekiel’s eyes So, the church will have revival and once again will rise We will see the gospel once again touching people’s lives As they look up to the cross and see His sacrifice I’m excited for the future, for what God has in store We must all stay vigilant and trust our risen Lord He will soon return to take His people home Let’s make sure that His church is ready and restored. Preach the word to all who come across your path Be ready to give a reason for the faith that you now have Be instant in season and full of praise each day This is how you’ll spread the word to those who need His grace
I wish I could fly I wish I could soar above the trees To see what it was like To be free I wish I could soar Above the mountains grand To see what eagles see Through the land But I can’t I wasn’t made that way I was made to walk this earth To live this life for Him CHORUS Lord, help me do my best Lord, help me tell the world That Jesus reigns. Jesus reigns Lord, help me walk with you Lord, help me speak the words of truth The Jesus reigns. Jesus reigns I wish I could float Like a cloud in the sky Seeing all the world around And pass by But I can’t I wasn’t made that way I was made to walk this earth To live this life for Him CHORUS BRIDGE He reigns in majesty. He reigns in truth He reigns above all things. He reigns in you He reigns in heaven. He reigns on earth He reigns to save your soul. He died for you CHORUS
May His grace shine on you His mercy shine through you His joy shine in you May Jesus shine May His peace shine from you May His hope shine around you May His love shine all around you May Jesus shine From the highest hill To the lowest valley May Jesus shine through you From the calmest night To the raging storm May Jesus shine through you To every nation Every tongue Every tribe Everyone To all the oppressed Who need to be free May Jesus shine through you and me
