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
In the sea of life I am sinking fast The waves are high and the north wind blasts I look out and see all the past mistakes and failures Then I hear a voice calling out by name He says “Son you’re mine do not be ashamed.” Then I cry out “Lord, thank you for your grace,” I am yours in the morning. I am yours in the evening I am yours in the middle of the day I am yours when rejoicing. I am yours when I’m weeping I am yours and I’ll not be led away I am yours There are times when my head is not held high I am down and out, cannot testify Of the love you have for me in all my weakness Then I think about your amazing grace And the mercy shown me throughout the day Then I lift my head up and thank you for your goodness I am yours in the morning. I am yours in the evening I am yours in the middle of the day I am yours when rejoicing. I am yours when I’m weeping I am yours and I’ll not be led away I am yours What a great day it is when I have Jesus What a great day it is when you are near I will lift my hands and lift my voice to worship And give praise to the one that I adore I am yours in the morning. I am yours in the evening I am yours in the middle of the day I am yours when rejoicing. I am yours when I’m weeping I am yours and I’ll not be led away I am yours
