Weary Traveler

I’m a weary traveler

Oh Lord

As you lead me

Across the land

The days are long

The miles are hard

The road’s much rougher

Than I’d planned

But Lord

You know my steps

How hard they’ve been

As I’ve trod along

From day to day to day

I’ve only been able to stand

By your good grace

And though the road grows

Shorter ever shorter

I the weary traveler knows

Till the end I will endure


All Is Vanity

All is vanity

The teacher says

All is vanity

As we spend our days

All is vanity

Vanity

Seeking our own

Way to travel

In this world our home

All is vanity

Vanity

Unless you seek

The truth

Follow the Lord

In all you do


What’s Up

Keep asking myself

What’s up

With the world today

We complain about

Things to change

But seldom step up

To change our ways

We complain

God’s not there

But have taken God

From everywhere

We complain

We want more

Then more and more

But are unwilling

To work

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. (Proverbs 3:3, ESV)

God’s Not Done

Each new day

I Travel

Under the sun

I think of the battles fought

The victories won

I also know

One thing for sure

There are battles ahead

I must endure

Cause

God’s not done with me yet

God’s not done with me yet


Walk Like a Christian

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

You claim your saved

Born again

Walkin a new way

But your walk doesn’t match

The words you say

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

Be the word people

Will see

Be the truth which

Will set the free

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

Walk like, walk like

A Christian

Lucky Day

I woke up this morning

Oh what a lucky day

Cause God gave me

Another chance

To lead people his way

Another chance to be

His hands

His feet

His voice

To show those around

There’s always a netter choice.

Oh what a luck day

Oh what a lucky day


We Have A Name

We have a name

We call ourselves

The only true name

Accepted by our Lord

Reborn

Reborn

Not as a babe

Reborn

To a change of ways

Reborn

To a new life

Free of sin and strife

Reborn

Reborn


Soul

The rhythm

which soothes the soul

Comes not

From the world around

Not from

Ideas which are tossed

And found

The rhythm

Which soothes the soul

Flows

From the heartbeat

Of God’s love

Which ebbs and flows


Endure

There are times

I want to

Give up

Quit

Throw in the towel

Say

It’s just not worth it

Then God calls me out

Says to me

Did I not

Create you

Make you

Knit you

In your mother’s womb

So weary one

Will I not

Lift you

Hold you

Carry you on through

So put your

Faith in

Trust in

Your hand in mine

I’ll help you walk

The long, sometimes hard

Line

I’ll help you to

Endure


Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right, (Proverbs 8:6, ESV)

Lift My Heart

I’m so happy

Happy

I’m so happy

Happy

Down

O Lord lift my heart

O Lord lift my heart

Lift my heart to stay

Down

I know you’re there

Lord

I know you there

each day

So why do I get so

Down

Why do I feel this way

Down

O Lord lift my heart

O Lord lift my heart

Lift my heart to stay
