I Rejoice in Your Purpose Today

Recording
Printed Music

I rejoice in Your purpose today
Though the end may feel so far away.
I find peace in the love on Your face
And rejoice in Your purpose today.

I remember that You are the Lord,
And I feast on each promise I’ve heard.
What a strength when I stand on Your Word
And remember that You are the Lord.

Though confusion and struggle are all I can see
And I wrestle alone with my pain,
Lord, I know You are working this all for the best,
And my suffering is never in vain.

I rejoice in Your purpose today
Though the end may feel so far away.
I find peace in the love on Your face
And rejoice in Your purpose today.

I Love You, Jesus, Savior, Lord

Recording
Printed Music

I love You, Jesus, Savior, Lord,
But not for what I gain
Of all the unimagined wealth
Of all Your vast domain.
I love You, Lord, but not in fear
As hell slips into view –
That endless, hopeless pain and death
Of never knowing You.

But Lord, You showed a love for me
That I could not deny.
Your agonizing death, O God –
I knew the guilt was mine.
You called my name. I heard Your voice
And saw You face to face.
A love and mercy flowed from You
That words could never trace.

So how can I but love You now,
My Savior and my Friend?
You pour out love I don’t deserve
And cannot comprehend.
I worship You, Almighty God,
And love You as I sing,
For You are Love and Life and Lord
And my Eternal King!

I Find All My Joy in You

Recording
Printed Music

I am always in Your heart,
I am in Your eye.
Though the storms may blow and rage
And the waters rise,
Lord, I know that You are love,
And my heart replies:
I will find all my joy in You.
Lord, I find all my joy in You.

You have put me where I am –
I will stand secure.
Though I cannot see ahead,
Every step is sure,
For Your presence is a light
That is clear and pure.
I will find all my joy in You.
Lord, I find all my joy in You.

Jesus, my life!
Jesus, my strength!
Jesus, my joy day to day!

I am always in Your heart,
I am in Your eye.
Though the storms may blow and rage
And the waters rise,
Lord, I know that You are love,
And my heart replies:
I will find all my joy in You.
Lord, I find all my joy in You.

I Cannot See the Light, My Lord

Recording
Printed Music

I cannot see the light, my Lord;
I only feel the fear;
And yet I know that You are God
When nothing else is clear.

I have no strength to lift myself,
But Lord, I lift my need.
I spread before You all my fears.
Come take my hand and lead.

When all my joys have turned to pain
And hopes have fallen through,
I raise my eyes and fix my heart:
My only hope is You.

My God, my God, my hope, my joy,
You’re with me in this place!
So in Your presence, in Your peace,
I trust, rejoice, and wait.

Holy, Holy, Holy God

Recording
Printed Music

Holy, holy, holy God,
Pure, and yet You draw us near You.
We were sin and far away,
Yet You gave us hearts to hear You.
Speak Your gracious, loving Word,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

All Your being, all You are,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Breathes Your life and love within,
Whispers peace, if we will hear it,
Speaks Your lovely, living Word,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

Day by day Your Spirit sings,
All Your sovereign love resounding:
“Walk complete in all I am!
Live by faith in joy abounding!”
Praise to You, Almighty Word,
Holy, holy, holy Lord!

He’ll Understand and Say, “Well Done!”

Recording
Printed Music

If when you give the best of your service,
Telling the world that the Savior has come,
Be not dismayed when men don’t believe you.
He understands; He’ll say, “Well done!” 

Refrain:
O when I come to the end of my journey,
Weary of life, and the battle is won,
Bearing the staff and cross of redemption,
He’ll understand and say, “Well done!”

When you are tried, so weak and discouraged,
Turn to the cross – see the Father’s own Son.
Look up in love and say with Your Savior,
“Not my own will, but Yours be done.”

Trials will pass; they soon will be over.
Pain will be gone and the glory begun.
Then we will see the King in His beauty.
Bowing, we’ll hear, “My child, well done!”

Going Home

Recording
Printed Music

Going home, going home,
I’m just going home.
Quiet-like, slip away –
I’ll be going home.
It’s not far, just close by;
Jesus is the Door;
Work all done, laid aside,
Fear and grief no more.
Friends are there, waiting now.
He is waiting, too.
See His smile! See His hand!
He will lead me through. 

Morning Star lights the way;
Restless dream all done;
Shadows gone, break of day,
Life has just begun.
Every tear wiped away,
Pain and sickness gone;
Wide awake there with Him!
Peace goes on and on!
Going home, going home,
I’ll be going home.
See the Light! See the Sun!
I’m just going home.

God Blesses His People

Recording
Printed Music

Yahweh, high and holy Sovereign,
Claims the needy as His own,
Calls us to His holy presence,
Wraps us in His sweet shalom.

Refrain:
See His face ever lifted,
Ever shining, ever smiling,
Ever blessing, ever breathing peace.

Yahweh is our Great Protector,
He our Shepherd, we His sheep.
Guarding, guiding, seeking, finding,
He is watching while we sleep.

Yahweh takes us as His children,
Shares with us His holy name.
His the power, His the glory,
His the Kingdom we proclaim!

Discover Jesus Christ

Recording
Printed Music

Discover in a tiny child
The Lord of time and space,
In helplessness and poverty,
The hope of all our race.
The spring of joy, the dawn of peace,
The mystery of life–
Come touch the hand and heart of God:
Discover Jesus Christ.

Come see the most despised of men;
Come see the most adored.
Come watch Him move in mighty love;
Come wonder at His words.
Come see Him suffer, see His pain;
Stand watching as He dies,
And hear forgiveness for your sins:
Discover Jesus Christ.

Now see the One you crucified–
He lives, and all is well.
His Spirit fills the universe,
Our Lord, Emmanuel.
Discover hope. Discover joy.
Discover love and life.
Discover God your dearest friend.
Discover Jesus Christ.

Content in You

Recording
Printed Music

Weak or strong, in need or plenty,
In the dark of deepest grief,
Rich or poor, in health or sickness,
When my pain finds no relief,
As I pray, You prove it true:
I can rest content in You.

Perfect wisdom, perfect power,
Perfect goodness, perfect love,
Father, Savior, Friend, and Healer,
O so near and all above,
You are joy each moment new!
Here I rest content in You.

Father, patient through my struggles,
Always strong when I am frail,
True to each and every promise,
So forgiving when I fail,
You are good in all You do!
I rejoice, content in You.

Money, fame, and pleasures call me.
Worries threaten every day.
All their hopes and fears are empty,
Quickly come, then fade away.
Other joys are false and few.
Lord, I rest content in You.
