We won’t be shaken

This world has nothing for me;  this life is not my own.
I know You go before me and I am not alone!
This mountain rises higher, the way seems so unclear…
But I know that You go with me so I will never fear!
I will trust in You…

Whatever will come our way,
through fire or pouring rain –
we won’t be shaken, no, we won’t be shaken.
Whatever tomorrow brings,
together we’ll rise and sing
that we won’t be shaken, no, we won’t be shaken.

You know my every longing, You’ve heard my every prayer…
You’ve held me in my weakness ’cause You are always there.
So I’ll stand in full surrender – it’s Your way and not my own.
My mind is set on nothing less than You and You alone…
I will not be moved, oh…

Chorus

We will trust in You
We will not be moved
We will trust in You
And we won’t be shaken

Psalm 62:1-2

A Psalm of David.  My soul waits in silence for God only;  From Him is my salvation.  He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken. (ESV)

The Altar

The service is nearing an end
The choir is singing “Just As I Am”
And now as that old song is played
People at the altar are kneeling down to pray
Some are finding mercy
Forgiveness for their sin
Some are fighting battles
They’ve been struggling to win
The time has come to give them to the Lord
That’s what this altar is for

That’s what this altar is for
You don’t have to carry those burdens anymore
There’s a Light in the darkness
And there’s a Love that’s true
And Jesus is waiting
Waiting here for you
Go quickly now before they close the door
That’s what this altar is for

I see a father is praying with his son
Momma kneels beside them thanking God they’ve come
There’s an old man standing there in tears
Giving up a part of him he’s held back for years
Hearts are being broken
Lives are being changed
And those who call upon Him
They will never be the same
The time has come to give in to the Lord
That’s what this altar is for

Chorus

You can give your burdens to the Lord
That’s what this altar is for

I’m Yours, LORD

I’m Yours Lord, everything I’ve got
Everything I am, everything I’m not.
I’m Yours Lord, try me now and see
See if I can be completely Yours.

My life and my love, I leave in Your hands,
I’ll gladly perform as Your will demands
I know it’s not much, Your gift to repay,
but it’s all I can give, and all I can say is…

I’m Yours Lord, everything I’ve got
Everything I am, everything I’m not.
I’m Yours Lord, try me now and see
See if I can be completely Yours.

You put in us all, a desire to belong,
to join with Your strength and thus become strong
With that thought in mind, I reach for the Prize,
I lift up my voice to reemphasize that…

I’m Yours Lord, everything I’ve got
Everything I am, everything I’m not.
I’m Yours Lord, try me now and see
See if I can be completely Yours.

If you hear this song but you don’t understand,
the answer is clear, just reach out your hand
When you feel the force, of Jesus the King,
Just lift up your voice, and join in and sing…

I’m Yours Lord, everything I’ve got
Everything I am, everything I’m not.
I’m Yours Lord, try me now and see
See if I can be completely Yours.

I want to be like Jesus

I want to talk like Jesus:  words of Truth my mouth to speak.
I want to walk like Jesus:  carefully with holy feet.

I want to see like Jesus:  tenderly with a loving heart.
I want to be like Jesus:  Spirit-filled and set apart.

I want to live like Jesus:  faithful to my God above.
I want to give like Jesus:  not of duty, but of love.

I want to pray like Jesus:  “Father, not my will, but Thine…”
I want to stay like Jesus, in God’s presence all the time.

Have Thine Own way, Lord

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!
Power, all power, surely is Thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with Thy Spirit till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me.

~ Lyrics:  Adelaide A. Pollard, 1907 ~

What life would be like

“I wish I was more of a man” – have you ever felt that way?
And if I had to tell you the truth, I’m afraid I’d have to say
that after all I’ve done and failed to do I feel like less than I was meant to be…

What if I could fix myself?  Maybe then I could get free;
I could try to be somebody else who’s much better off than me…
But I need to remember this:  That it’s when I’m at my weakest I can clearly see –

He made the lame walk, and the dumb talk, He opened blinded eyes to see
That the sun rises on His time, yet He knows our deepest desperate need.
And the world waits, while His heart aches, to realize the dream –
I wonder what life would be like if we let Jesus live through you and me…

What if you could see yourself through another pair of eyes?
What if you could hear the Truth, instead of old familiar lies?
And what if you could feel inside, the power of the Hand that made the universe –
You’d realize…..

Chorus

All our hearts they burn within us.  All our lives we’ve longed for more.
So let us lay our lives before the One who gave His life for us.

Scripture reference:

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
“And He said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.   Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Holy Spirit, have Your way

Long after the tears fall I’m still your child,
I put down my defenses and lay down my pride,
Love and forgiveness flow deep and wide
So I’ll run to you and surrender all!

As I lay down my life and pick up my cross –
What a joy it is to give my life away to You!
All that I need, all that I seek
is You here with me –
Holy Spirit have Your way in me!

In times of trouble, though trials may come
The Rock of Ages is standing strong
I’m fighting battles, but the war is won
So I’ll run to you and surrender all…

Chorus

More of You and less of me, God
More of You and less of me, God
More of You and less of me, God
More of You overflowing
