Nicodemus Answered

 
 

Nicodemus Answered
By Sylvia E Blakely
~

Nicodemus came to Jesus one day
He asked Jesus to show him the way.

I know you’re a teacher come from God
Through all the miracles you have wrought.

When Jesus said: You must be born again
Nicodemus needed Jesus to explain.

Jesus taught this was a spiritual birth
A heavenly gift; not of the earth.

Not earned by works of sinful man
But by God’s grace so freely given.

~


Jesus answered and said to him,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
[John 3:3]

Remember The Cross

 
 

Remember The Cross
By Sylvia E Blakely
~

Your body broken precious Lord
What You suffered on the tree!
You had to die that we might live
Paid our debt and set us free…
May we remember what it cost
To bear our sin upon the cross.

Jesus You died and rose again
All Your work on earth is done
By faith we’ll meet with You in heaven
Lord we thank You for Your Son!…
May we remember what it cost
To bear our sin upon the cross.

“Jesus gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed
and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.”
[Titus 2:14]

He Always Gives Us Victory!

 
 

He Always Gives Us Victory!
By Marie C Neubauer
~

Why dwell on things that bring us down
And cause our face to wear a frown?
But turn to Him who sets us free
To Christ who gives us victory!

Thank Him for gifts both great and small
For answering our troubled calls
The many things He’s brought us through
When we did not know what to do!

And when our faith begins to grow
Our gloominess will start to go
No matter what we have to face
Christ helps us put things in their place!

Though Satan wants to steal, destroy
The Savior will restore our joy
For Jesus came to set us free
And always gives us victory!

~


“But thanks be to God who always gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
[1 Corinthians 15:57]

Lord Lead Me

 
 

Lord Lead Me
By June Stein
~

Lord lead me in Your Holy way
That as I reach, I feel Your Hand,
For everything I bring to You
And know that You will understand.

When all my cares are brought to You
Sweet rest is found in love and grace,
Again I feel You lift me up
As in my heart, Your lead I trace.

You never fail me when I ask
Such comfort Your strong answer gives,
I know that I will always thrive
Because in Jesus Christ I live!

~


“Since You are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of Your Name lead and guide me.”
[Psalm 31:3]

I Must Know I’m Weak

 
 

I Must Know I’m Weak
By Tom D Blakely
~

I thank you Lord, You are my God
My Lord in every way
That even in the smallest things
I see Your hand at play.

When illness or bereavement come
Or any dreadful thing
You hold back waves and keep me calm
To ease me through the storm.

You are my strength when I am weak
You are my confidence
You are the only Friend I want
When nothing else makes sense.

You’re there with me when others fail
And no one else can help
I love and fear no earthly thing
When You are with me Lord.

For though I know You’re always there
According to Your Word
It seems that I must know I’m weak
Before You give me aid.

At times I have to fail the test
To feel the arms of God
To know how weak I really am
To realise His power.

~


“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.”
[2 Corinthians 12:10]

Completely His!

 
 

Completely His!
By Kumalawaty Sundari
~

I used to walk the path of sin
Till Jesus opened up my eyes.
He is my life, my love, my joy
And brightens even darkest days…
I’m satisfied in Christ always
Now saved, I am completely His!

With Jesus’ love within my heart
I am secure in His embrace.
My steps He guides most carefully
With Him I have such inner peace…
I’m satisfied in Christ always
Now saved, I am completely His!

With Jesus I have victory
In battle He stands up for me.
To God be glory, I am saved
For now and for eternity…
I’m satisfied in Christ always
Now saved, I am completely His!

~


“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;
and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
[Galatians 2:20]

Hark What Light!

 
 

Hark What Light!
By Rita Broden
~

Hark! What Light through yonder scripture breaks!
It is God’s Word! It is alive!
It breaks through darkest darkness
And at Truth we do arrive.

It nourishes the souls of man
It sets the captive free
It gives an everlasting hope
To sinners such as me.

The Old Testament points to Jesus
The New Testament tells his story
The One who came from heaven
To give His Father glory.

Willingly He gave His life
A ransom for man’s sin
No greater love you’ll ever find
In all the time that’s been.

God’s Word is the best love story
That has ever graced a page
And it speaks to those who seek Him
No matter what their age.

Peace you’ll find; Truth you’ll know
Your Savior you will see
He’s there for every soul on earth
Even a sinner such as me.

~
