Your Eyes

You lead me to a world that I haven’t seen
And there You guarantee
That the things I will see will scare me some
This is what Your eyes see

A man comes by whose appearance proclaims
“Every thing is clearly alright”
But he wishes he friends outnumbered his money
This is what’s seen with Your sight

An orphan child without a home
And no place to sleep at night
No mother, no father, and no one who loves him
This is what’s seen with Your sight

Past the child is a widowed lady
Who is lonely as she can be
Her husband has died and her children don’t care
This is what Your eye’s see

I walk down a hall, down to a cell
I see a man in the dark
He tells me of all the mistakes he’s made
And then he quietly remarks:
"I want to be free, not just from this cell
But from fear that’s haunting me
Is there more to this life--I wish someone would say!"
This is what Your eye’s see

The world looks so different than it did before
I ask, “How can this be?”
Then I remember what You have said
This sight is what Your eye’s see.

Death Is Gain

He could not restrain
They needed to know
He would tell them
They waited his arrival

He traveled to them
They felt his love
He showed God to them
They received the gift

He was captured by some on a bright, fair day
They said if he didn’t deny, it would be to his death
He could not deny his Savior, Master, and God
And praised Him with his last breath

…Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Take your candle, go light your world…

…For none of us lives to himself alone
and none of us dies to himself alone
If we live, we live to the Lord
and if we die, we die to the Lord
So, whether we live or die,
we belong to the Lord…

Not About Me

Lord, I am bold to even contemplate
Thinking of myself
Caring for myself
Loving myself

Morning I wake and conspire to make
Me happy
Me glorified
Me foremost

Remind me now, let me never forget
Nothing is ever about me…
Everything is eternally about You

To You trees tremble,
Rocks worship,
Angles sing,
Elders bow,
Leaders submit,
Satin winces,
Oceans still,
Lions roar,
Authors write,
People pray,
And all of Heaven declares,
That You are God

Forever Holy

I come to Your presence with the angels singing
I stand in wonder of You
I look as the elders lay down their crowns
Everyone’s worshiping You

We’re singing with angels
You are the holy one
We’re bowing with elders
Holy is the Lord
We never stop singing
We never stop bowing down
We never stop saying the words
Holy is the Lord
Holy is the Lord

Now at the throne I fall on my face
I bow in wonder of You
I feel that Your praises shake the ground
Everyone’s worshiping You

Holy is the Lord.

And, for all of eternity, not matter what, the angels "never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty..." They never stop saying it! Forever.

And one day we'll get to sing it with them, this is the day we must long for... to be in eternal communion and reverence of God.

I can still hear Francis Chan speaking about this...

The awesome part is not that they keep saying this, but rather that even after all of eternity of them saying "Holy, Holy, Holy... is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come..." it won't even come close to being near the praise that God deserves.

Trust and Hope

Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
That is where my trust and hope should be, in God.

God of Wonders

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done,
And Your thoughts toward us;
There is none to compare with You
If I would declare and speak of them,
They would be too numerous to count.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
