Song for The Journey

Here’s a song for the journey
As we draw near the line
Though our eyes bear a tear
As we wave our goodbye
May the clouds part before you
May the stars kiss your eyes

There are days made for wonder
and laughter and wine
May your dreams take you places
Through rivers that wind
If we don’t count our blessings
We’re wasting our time

Heaven knows where the road falls before me
May the angels hold those left behind
When I dream of the treasures
and pleasures we find
There are many and many were mine

When your heart it grows weary
And you can’t face the night
I will give you my shoulder
For the weight on your mind
If we don’t count our blessings
We’re wasting our time
Here’s a song for the journey tonight

Hear Us From Heaven

Lord, hear our cry
Come heal our land
Breathe life into these dry and thirsty souls

Lord, hear our prayer
Forgive our sin
And as we call on Your name
Would You make this a place for Your glory to dwell

Reff:

Open the blind eyes
Unlock the deaf ears
Come to Your people
As we draw near

Hear us from heaven
Touch our generation
We are Your people
Crying out in desperation

~ Jared Anderson ~

PS: I like this song among the songs in Don Moen’s latest album Hiding Place.  With all the situations happening surrounds us every day (earthquakes, tsunamis, fire, volcano eruptions, hot mud, etc.), we are called to stand in the gap for our country so that they can turn from their wicked ways and come back to the Lord.  Can we stop focusing on yourselves just for a while and stand in the gap for the people around us, especially our own family members who don’t know Jesus yet.

Perhaps Love…

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

~John Denver~

Leader of The Band

FathersonAn only child alone and wild, a cabinet maker’s son
His hands were meant for different work
And his heart was known to none
He left his home and went his lone and solitary way
And he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay

A quiet man of music denied a simpler fate
He tried to be a soldier once, but his music wouldn’t wait
He earned his love through discipline: a thundering, velvet hand
His gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand

     The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
     But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
     My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
     I’m just a living legacy to the Leader of The Band

My brothers’ lives were different for they heard another call
One went to Chicago and the other to St. Paul
And I’m in Colorado when I’m not in some hotel
Living out this life I’ve chose and come to know so well

I thank you for the music and your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go
I thank you for the kindness and the times when you got tough
And, papa, I don’t think I said ’I love you’ near enough

     The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
     But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
     My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
     I’m just a living legacy to the Leader of The Band

I am the living legacy to the Leader of The Band

Heart of Worship

D                 A                     Em
When the music fades, all is stripped away,
              A
And I simply come
D                  A                       Em
Longing just to bring something that's of worth
                       A
That will bless Your heart

     For a song in itself,
                 D/F#         A    A/C#  D

D                 A                      Em
King of endless worth, no one could express,
                A
How much You deserve

Though I'm weak and poor, all I have is Yours,
                A
Every single breath

Do They See Jesus In Me

Is the face that I see in the mirror
The one I want others to see
Do I show in the way that I walk in my life
The love that You’ve given to me
My heart desires to be like You
In all that I do, all that I am

Mirrorbaby_1Do they see Jesus in me
Do they recognize Your
face
Do I communicate Your love
And Your grace
Do I reflect who You are
In the way I choose to be
Do they see Jesus
Jesus
in me

It’s amazing that You’d ever use me
But use me the way You will
Help me to hold out a heart of compassion and grace
A heart that Your spirit fills
May I show forgiveness and mercy
The same way You’ve shown it to me

Well I wanna show all the world
That You are the reason I live and breathe
So You’ll be the one that they see
When they see me

~ Pete Carlson / Amy Roth ~
