All Is Your Mercy

Every heartbeat
Every breath
Every footstep
Every rest

Every sunrise
Every rain
Every sweet scent
Every day


CHORUS
All is your mercy, Lord.  Mercy for me
All is your mercy, Lord.  Holy and free
Without your mercy don’t know what I’d do
Thanks for your mercy Lord.  How I love you

All that I hear
All I can see
All that I taste
All I can feel

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Mercy and grace so freely given
You gave your life on a cross just for me
All of my pardon from sins disease
You took it all, Lord, mercy so free

CHORUS

Thunderstorms

 I love to sit and hear the sound of summer
 The thunder rolling through the nighttime sky
 I look and see the lightning flash in glory
 Lighting up the darkness of the night
  
 I love to wonder how our great creator
 Came up with the idea of thunderstorms
 Cold and hot air clashing in the heavens
 Producing clouds and winds that swirl and swarm
  
 I wonder how the wind can change direction
 Like a line drawn in the sky the gusts collide
 South winds change to north along a boundary
 As if a wall was set up in the sky
  
 Then I think how awesome is our blessed Savior
 Who came down from His lofty throne above.
 After giving birth to thunderstorms and lightning
 He died upon a cross to show His love
  
 Oh, what grace and mercy He has shown us
 Oh, what suffering He endured for us
 Like a lighting bolt that struck a line in history
 Is the picture of our Savior on the cross
  
 One solitary moment in the past
 Stands out across the length and breadth of time
 He died to show His love for His creation
 He rose again to give us all eternal life
  
 So the next time you hear thunder in the distance
 And see the flash of lightning in the sky
 Look up an thank the God of all creation
 For the Son he gave to be your sacrifice
   

The Beauty of the Cross

 It stands there so stately at the front of the church 
 Clean and lit up for all to see
 We look to that cross and sing all our hymns 
 The Old Rugged Cross and Amazing Grace
  
 But we don't see the agony, the heartache and pain
 That was nailed to that cross on that fateful day
 We think the cross is pretty and clean
 But the cross that He bore was deadly and mean
  
 We think of mercy and grace so sweet
 We think of love and forgiveness of sin
 We often forget the suffering and loss 
 The blood is the real beauty of the cross
  
 The blood that was shed from His hands and His feet 
 The blood that dropped down from the thorns on His head 
 The blood that poured out from the scars on His back
 His blood shed for me was the beauty of the cross
  
 The blood shed for healing 
 The blood shed for me
 The blood shed for salvation 
 His glorious blood 
 The blood of my Savior
 The blood of my Lord 
 The blood of God's son
 Given for us.
  
 We think of mercy and grace so sweet
 We think of love and forgiveness of sin
 We often forget the suffering and loss 
 The blood is the real beauty of the cross
  
 The blood that was shed from His hands and His feet 
 The blood that dropped down from the thorns on His head 
 The blood that poured out from the scars on His back
 His blood shed for me was the beauty of the cross
