Lyrics of the Day!

Discussion in 'Books, Music and Television' started by cly, Feb 22, 2006.

  1. Original Song

    This is probably the shortest hymn\song
    for the Lord you'll ever see!

    It's an original I wrote many years ago
    and I have sung it in many churches and
    homes.


    [​IMG]



    Hallelujah,.... Glory to the Lamb


    Hallelujah,.... To the Great I Am


    Hallelujah,.... Lift up your voice

    and sing.



    Hallelujah,.... Crown Him King of Kings!
     
  2. I can't remember all the words to this song, but here is the chorus...

    You'll never change, Your love remains...Oh, God...I'm holding on to You!
    When I'm afraid, still Your love remains...Oh, God...I'm holding on to You!
     
  3. Still

    Hide me now
    under your wings
    Cover me
    beneath your mighty hand

    Chorus:
    When the oceans rise and thunders roar
    I will soar with you above the storm
    Father you are king over the flood
    I will be still and know you are God

    Find rest my soul
    In Christ alone
    Know his power
    In quietness and trust

    Chorus:
    When the oceans rise and thunders roar
    I will soar with you above the storm
    Father you are king over the flood
    I will be still and know you are God
     
  4. "Rescue the Perishing"
    From Heavenly Highway Hymns

    Verse 1:
    Rescue the persishing, care for the dying, snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; Weep o'er the erring one, lift up the fallen, tell them of Jesus the mighty to save!

    Chorus:
    Rescue the perishing, care for the dying; Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save!

    Verse 2:
    Tho they are slighting Him, still He is waiting, waiting the penitent child to receive; Plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently, He will forgive if they only believe!

    Chorus

    Verse 3:
    Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter, feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness, chords that are broken will vibrate once more!

    Chorus

    Verse 4:
    Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide; Back to the narrow way, patiently win them; Tell the poor wand'er a Savior has died!

    Chorus
     
  5. There is none like You

    There is none like You
    No one else can touch my heart like You do
    I could search for all eternity long
    And find there is none like You

    Your mercy flows like the river wide
    And healing comes from Your hands
    Sufferring children are safe in Your arms
    There is none like You
     
  6. A song by Poet Voices:

    The Key

    There is a key, only one key. Unlocking everything. One of a kind.
    Put in a place for everyone to see.
    There for every "whosoever will" to find.

    I can unlock the shackles of sin's prison.
    I can open up the very gates of hell.
    I can swing wide the doorway up to heaven
    All because the key was hung on a nail.

    There on the tree they placed the answer
    To peace and happiness, to everlasting love.
    There on the cross they placed the Savior.
    Now the lost below can reach to God above.

    I can unlock the shackles of sin's prison,
    Even open up the very gates of hell,
    I can swing wide the doorway up to heaven
    All because the key was hung on a nail.

    Christ is the key, the key that frees us.
    That's why I'll spend the endless ages praising Jesus!
     
  7. This is one of my favorites! Who can measure the Love of God??!! Alleluia!
     
  8. One of my favorites

    This is a Very powerful song. ;)


    Let Freedom Ring - as sung by the Gaither Vocal Band


    Deep within, the heart has always known that there was freedom
    Somehow breathed into the very soul alive.
    The prisoner, the powerless, the slave have always known it.
    There's something that keeps reaching for the sky.
    And even life begins because a baby fights for freedom.
    And songs we love to sing have freedom's theme.
    Some have walked through fire and flood to find a place of freedom.
    And some faced hell itself for freedom's dream.

    Let freedom ring where ever minds know what it means to be in chains
    Let freedom ring where ever hearts know pain.
    Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key.
    You can be free and you can sing "Let freedom ring".

    God built freedom into every fiber of creation.
    And He meant for us to all be free and whole.
    But when my Lord bought freedom through the blood of His redemption
    His cross stamped freedom on my very soul!

    I'll sing it out with every breath and let the whole world hear it;
    this Hallelujah anthem of the free.
    That iron bars and heavy chains can never hold us captive
    The Son has made us free, and free indeed!

    Let freedom ring down through the ages from a hill called Calvary
    Let freedom ring where ever hearts know pain.
    Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key.
    You can be free and you can sing "Let freedom ring".
     
  9. Are you washed in the Blood?

    Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Refrain

    Are you washed in the blood,
    In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
    Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Refrain

    When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
    Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
    Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
    And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

    Refrain

    Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
    And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
    There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
    O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

    Refrain
     
  10. And Can It Be By Charles Wesley in 1738

    And can it be that I should gain
    An interest in the Savior’s blood?
    Died He for me, who caused His pain—
    For me, who Him to death pursued?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

    ’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:
    Who can explore His strange design?
    In vain the firstborn seraph tries
    To sound the depths of love divine.
    ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,
    Let angel minds inquire no more.
    ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
    Let angel minds inquire no more.

    He left His Father’s throne above
    So free, so infinite His grace—
    Emptied Himself of all but love,
    And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
    ’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!
    ’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!

    Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
    Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
    Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—
    I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

    Still the small inward voice I hear,
    That whispers all my sins forgiven;
    Still the atoning blood is near,
    That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.

    No condemnation now I dread;
    Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
    Alive in Him, my living Head,
    And clothed in righteousness divine,
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
     
  11. Yes, this is a good one! It just goes to show how timeless the Word of God is.
     
  12. I think my all-time favorite is a little known song by the Hinsons (Southern Gospel) called "Broken Worthless Vessel". That pretty much sums up my life.

    It was a field of rejects where I lay
    In a pile the world had thrown away.
    Just a broken worthless vessel stained
    with years of disregard
    thrown away, this piece of clay
    that couldn't hold its part.

    You know I finally saw one day, just how
    quickly sin can shatter a man into a million pieces
    that even time could never mend
    Suddenly I lay on the scrap heap of humanity
    and no one cared.
    All alone with my hopes, my dreams, my worth all gone;
    my life surely at an end.

    But then the Master Potter found me,
    said He'd make me whole again.
    I cast aside my broken pride
    and gladly melted in His hands.

    Potter, mold me, till I'm true.
    Jesus, make me just like you.
    Anything, Lord, to be a vessel for your annointing.
    Potter, break me, even more.
    Bend me, Jesus, til you're sure
    You'd be proud to bring this worthless vessel home.
     
  13. Currently this is one of my absolute favorite songs. John Mandeville has played at our church several times in the past and has truely been an incredible witness in his life to how God can work through music.

    I want what You want
    more than I want anything,
    I want what you want for me.

    Cause Lord Your faithfulness
    Like the ocean and the rain
    everyday the same
    Your word is life
    so through the sorrow and the pain
    You've taught me how to say (that)

    I want what You want
    more than I want anything,
    I want what you want for me.

    Cause Lord Your faithfulness
    Like the ocean and the rain
    everyday the same
    Your word is life
    so through the sorrow and the pain
    You've taught me how to say (that)

    I want what You want
    more than I want anything,
    I want what you want for me.
     
  14. This world can analyze and size you up
    And throw you on the scales
    They can IQ you and run you thorugh
    Their rigorous details
    They can do their best to rate
    And they'll place you on their charts
    And then back it up with scientific smarts

    But there's more to what you're worth
    Than what their human eyes can see

    CHORUS
    Oh I say the measure of a man
    Is not how tall you stand
    How wealthy or intelligent you are
    'Cause I found out the measure of a man
    God knows and understand
    For He looks inside to the bottom of your heart
    And what's in the heart defines
    The measure of a man

    Well you can doubt your worth
    And search for who you are and where you stand
    But God made you in His image
    When He formed you in His hands
    And He looks at you with mercy
    And He sees you through His love
    You're His child and that will always be enough

    For there's more to what your worth
    Than you could ever comprehend

    REPEAT CHORUS

    BRIDGE
    You can spend your life persuing physical perfection
    But there's so much more than ever meets the eye
    For God looks through the surface
    And he defines your worth by what is on the inside

    REPEAT CHORUS

    (The Measure of a Man, 4Him)
     
  15. awesome thread!!! my thanks to everyone.... I was not able to get to church today due to severe back spasms and a bit on an ice storm.... so reading these great songs was a real blessing to me... thanks!!!

    I am a real music lover myself.... here are a few of my favorites:

    others had a few older hymns.... here are 2 of my favorites... this is a powerful song!!

    Augustus Toplady
    Rock of Ages

    Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
    Let me hide myself in Thee;
    Let the water and the blood,
    From Thy riven side which flowed,
    Be of sin the double cure;
    Save from wrath and make me pure.

    Not the labour of my hands
    Can fulfil Thy law’s demands;
    Could my zeal no respite know,
    Could my tears for ever flow,
    All for sin could not atone;
    Thou must save, and Thou alone.

    Nothing in my hand I bring,
    Simply to the cross I cling;
    Naked, come to Thee for dress;
    Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
    Foul, I to the fountain fly;
    Wash me, Saviour, else I die.

    While I draw this fleeting breath,
    When my eyelids close in death, (*)
    When I soar to worlds unknown,
    See Thee on Thy judgement throne,
    Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
    Let me hide myself in Thee."

    I like Phil Keaggy's version of this old Irish hymn the best, its on his True Believer album.... he has some bagpipes going in the background, along with his awesome (as always) guitar work.... the hymn itself can be traced back to the 8th century but was modernized several times along the way....

    Be Thou My Vision

    1. Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
    Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
    Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
    Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

    2. Be Thou my Wisdom, Thou my true Word;
    I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord;
    Thou my great Father, I thy true son;
    Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

    3. Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for my fight,
    Be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight.
    Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tower.
    Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

    4. Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
    Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
    High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

    5. High King of heaven, my victory won,
    May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'ns Son!
    Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
    Still be my vision, O ruler of all.
     
  16. here are a few Caedmon's Call songs that have especially ministered to me.... though to be honest it is tough to narrow them down to just a few :)

    Shifting Sand

    Sometimes I believe all the lies
    So I can do the things I should despise
    And every day I am swayed
    By whatever is on my mind

    I hear it all depends on my faith
    So I'm feeling precarious
    The only problem I have with these mysteries
    Is they're so mysterious

    And like a consumer I've been thinking
    If I could just get a bit more
    More than my 15 minutes of faith,
    Then I'd be secure

    (Chorus)
    My faith is like shifting sand
    Changed by every wave
    My faith is like shifting sand
    So I stand on grace

    I've begged you for some proof
    For my Thomas eyes to see
    A slithering staff, a leperous hand
    And lions resting lazily

    A glimpse of your back-side glory
    And this soaked altar going ablaze
    But you know I've seen so much
    I explained it away

    Chorus

    Waters rose as my doubts reigned
    My sand-castle faith, it slipped away
    Found myself standing on your grace
    It'd been there all the time

    (Chorus repeated)

    Stand on grace"

    __________________________

    There You Go

    Is this the strange feeling
    Of you working all to good
    'Cause I am so confused
    I don't even ask for what I should

    When I asked for and deserved a stone
    You broke and gave your body as bread
    And even the stone that dropped down and rolled away
    Spoke of the one who bled

    There you go working good from my bad
    There you go making robes from my rags
    There you go melting crowns from my calves
    There you go working good of all I have
    Till all I have's not that bad

    When I asked for and deserved a serpent
    You gave a net full of fish
    And even the serpent that told the lie
    When lifted high foretold the gift

    For you so loved the unlovable
    That you gave the ineffable
    That who so believes the unbelievable
    Will gain the unattainable"
    _________________________________________________

    Thankful

    I ran across an old box of letters
    While I was bagging up some clothes for Goodwill
    You know I had to laugh that the same old struggles
    That plagued me then are plaguing me still
    I know the road is long from the ground to glory
    But a boy can hope he's getting some place
    But you see, I'm running from the very clothes I'm wearing
    And dressed like this I'm fit for the chase

    No, there is none righteous
    Not one who understands
    There is none who seek God
    No not one, no not one

    I am thankful that I'm incapable
    Of doing any good on my own

    'Cause we're all stillborn and dead in our transgressions
    We're shackled up to the sin we hold so dear
    So what part can I play in the work of redemption
    I can't refuse, I cannot add a thing

    'Cause I am just like Lazarus and I can hear your voice
    I stand and rub my eyes and walk to You
    Because I have no choice

    Chorus
    I am thankful that I'm incapable
    Of doing any good on my own
    I'm so thankful that I'm incapable
    Of doing any good on my own

    It's by grace I have been saved
    Through faith that's not my own
    It is the gift of God and not by works
    Lest anyone should boast
     
  17. this is sung by Phil Keaggy but is a poem by someone else... can't recall the name right now.... anyways... since Phil has around 50 albums, again its tough to narrow them down to just a few... but here are 3 for now......

    MORNING LIGHT (from "Play Thru Me")

    On a hill stands a cross, still shining fair,
    As the sun when the night has turned into day,
    Bright as day, still it shines bright as day.

    And from it love's pure light,
    Ever flowing to cleanse the heart, bring life,
    Drive the sin far away,
    See it wash it all away, far away.

    To this cross eyes of men are ever turning,
    Today just as they did in days gone by,
    And for the love of God,
    Their hearts are ever yearning
    Like men at sea in search of morning light.

    Awake, awake our hearts to hear the echos,
    Your words resound at the dawning.
    And all day we taste a love that is undying,
    And all day in praise for the morning light.

    To this cross eyes of men are ever turning,
    Today just as they did in days gone by,
    And for the love of God,
    Their hearts are ever yearning
    Like men at sea in search of morning light.

    Awake, awake our hearts to hear the echos,
    Your words resound at the dawning.
    And all day we taste a love that is undying,
    And all day in praise for the morning light.

    __________________________________________________

    LOVE BROKE THRU (from "Love Broke Thru")

    Like a dreamer that was trying to build
    A highway to the sky
    All my hopes would come tumblin down
    And I never knew just why
    Until today when You pulled away the clouds
    That hung like curtains on my eyes.
    I was blind all these wasted years when
    I thought I was so wise.
    But then You took me by surprise.

    Like waking up from the longest dream
    How real it seemed
    Until Your love broke through
    And I was lost in a fantasy
    That blinded me
    Until your love broke through.

    All my life I have been searching
    For that crazy missing part
    With one touch You just rolled away
    The stone that held my heart,
    Now I see that the answer was a simple
    As my need to let love in
    And I am so sure I could never doubt
    Your gentle touch again
    It's like the power of the wind.

    Like waking up from the longest dream
    How real it seemed
    Until Your love broke through
    And I was lost in a fantasy
    That blinded me
    Until your love broke through.

    Written By Keith Green & Randy Stonehill

    one of my favorite anti-abortion songs of all time is

    LITTLE ONES (from "Ph'Lip Side")

    Who will speak up for the little ones?
    Helpless and half-abandoned.
    They've got the right to choose life
    They don't want to lose,
    I've got to speak up, won't you?

    Equal rights, equal time, for the unborn children.
    Their precious lives are on the line,
    How can we be rid of them?
    Passing laws, passing out
    Bills and new amendments.
    Pay the cost and turn about,
    And face the young defendants.

    Who will speak up for the little ones?
    Helpless and half-abandoned.
    They've got the right to choose life
    They don't want to lose,
    I've got to speak up, won't you?

    Many come and many go,
    Conceived but not delivered.
    The toll is astronomical,
    How can we be indifferent.

    Little hands, little feet,
    Tears for Him who made you.
    Should all on earth forsake you now,
    But He'll never forsake you.

    Who will speak up for the little ones?
    Helpless and half-abandoned.
    They've got the right to choose life
    They don't want to lose,
    I've got to speak up, won't you?

    Forming hearts, forming minds,
    Quenched before awakened,
    For so many deliberate crimes
    The earth will soon be shaken.

    Little hands, little feet,
    Tears for Him who made you.
    Should all on earth forsake you now,
    But He'll never forsake you.

    Who will speak up for the little ones?
    Helpless and half-abandoned.
    They've got the right to choose life
    They don't want to lose,
    I've got to speak up, won't you?
     
  18. Some lyrics that put me in perspective of how I am with God.

    I dunno about you gus, but recently i came to that broken place, where all you can do is seek God, and i think in that place is where your cry is most sincere...Its by a band called RED and they deal with new metal rock but are a band unafraid to say that they are lovers of Jesus Christ.



    I'm here again
    A thousand miles away from you
    A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am
    I tried so hard
    Thought I could do this on my own
    I've lost so much along the way

    Then I'll see your face
    I know I'm finally yours
    I find everything I thought I lost before
    You call my name
    I come to you in pieces
    So you can make me whole

    I've come undone
    But you make sense of who I am
    Like puzzle pieces in your eye

    Then I'll see your face
    I know I'm finally yours
    I find everything I thought I lost before
    You call my name
    I come to you in pieces
    So you can make me whole!

    I tried so hard! So hard!
    I tried so hard!

    Then I'll see your face
    I know I'm finally yours
    I find everything I thought I lost before
    You call my name
    I come to you in pieces
    So you can make me whole
    So you can make me whole
     
  19. Once again by Brittany Borland. (I've met her :) )
    I love this song.


    (I had to type this all XP Lucky I have the CD)

    Lord, I've walked away, once again
    Lord, I've doubted your name, once again
    Lord, I've broken your heart, once again
    Lord, I've torn us apart once again.

    Lord, my hearts gone astray, once again
    Lord, I'm covered in shame, once again
    Lord, my faith has been shattered again
    Lord, I've lost all that mattered again.

    (Chorus) Father I'm searching the heavens
    above. Holding my doubts like I'm falling in
    love, but I try to reach for your hand that
    reached for my heart.

    (Bridge) Once again I'm on my knees
    Once again in slavery
    Once again I shout my cry
    Once again you justify
    Everything I have done, once again
    Every time I have run, once again
    Once again I sence your smile and once
    again you save your child!

  20. I have been really enjoying some Todd Agnew lately:

    Only one thing cannot fail
    Only one thing will never die
    Only one thing is sure and stable
    Even when I turn and turn and turn
    Only one thing, deeper than the ocean
    Only one thing is higher still
    Only one thing has such devotion
    Waiting arms wide until my will gives way

    Your love reaches across the miles I raced
    To separate me from You
    Your love cradles me like a child when I finally reach for you
    Your love's beyond my understanding
    Only one thing

    Only one thing is always faithful
    Only one thing is ever pure
    Only one thing, completely able
    Only one thing will endure forever
