Only Jesus Can Satisfy Your Soul

The world will try to satisfy that longing in your soul,

You may search the wide world over but you’ll be just as before.

You’ll never find true satisfaction until you’ve found the Lord,

For only Jesus can satisfy your soul.IMG_3422

If you could have the fame and fortune all the wealth you could obtain,

Yet you have not Christ within your living here would be in vain;

There’ll come a time when death shall call you, riches can not help you then,

So come to Jesus for He can satisfy.IMG_3464

CHORUS:

Only Jesus can satisfy your soul

And only He can change your heart

And make you whole;

He’ll give you peace you never knew

Sweet love and joy and Heaven too,

For only Jesus can satisfy your soul.

Springs of Living Water

I thirsted in the barren land of sin and shame,
And nothing satisfying there I found;
But to the blessed cross of Christ one day I came,
Where springs of living water did abound.

Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, happy now am I, my soul they satisfy; 
Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, wonderful and bountiful supply. 

IMG_0176How sweet the living water from the hills of God,
It makes me glad and happy all the way;
Now glory, grace, and blessing mark the path I’ve trod;
I’m shouting “Hallelujah!” every day.

Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, happy now am I, my soul they satisfy; 
Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, wonderful and bountiful supply.
IMG_0171Oh sinner, won’t you come today to Calvary?
A fountain there is flowing deep and wide;
The Savior now invites you to the water free,
Where thirsting spirits can be satisfied.

Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, happy now am I, my soul they satisfy; 
Drinking at the springs of living water, 
Oh, wonderful and bountiful supply.

You Are My Refuge

I wandered through this world
in selfishness and pride.
The storms of life surrounded me
I had no place to hide.
Until I heard the news,
a refuge strong and sure
was waiting then to welcome me
and keep me there secure.

You are my refuge,
I hide in You.
You are the hope I’m running to.
Your words are faithful,
Your promise true.
I hide in You.

Lake Nojiri

Dark clouds may fill the sky,
but still I see the Son.
God’s love shines down upon his child,
the overshadowed one.
No matter what I feel,
His promises are true.
And I can trust Him even when
the storms He takes me through.

You are my refuge,
I hide in You.
You are the hope I’m running to.
Your words are faithful.
Your promise true.
I hide in You.

I hide in You.

God Moves in a Mysterious Way…

Lake Nojiri

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.

July, 2014

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

IMG_0697His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

~William Cowper

Create in Me a Clean Heart

IMG_0456I came to the Lord with my heart full of sin,
Empty of purpose and troubled within.
My flesh had the victory, My heart sought release—
Lord, wilt Thou cleanse me and grant me Thy peace?

Create in me a clean heart, my Father;
Renew a right spirit in me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
May Christ be seen in me.IMG_0407

I cried to the Savior, “Forgive me, I pray.”
He granted cleansing and sins fell away.
My bondage was ended, My heart was set free;
Lord, nevermore may I wander from Thee.

Create in me a clean heart, my Father;
Renew a right spirit in me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
May Christ be seen in me.
