Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to those who believe,
For the birth of Christ they receive.
Happy are those who love the Way,
With faithfulness they live every day.

Merry Christmas to those who endure,
To the very end they keep their faith secure.
Happy are those that serve God strong,
With Christ may they not go wrong.

Merry Christmas to my brothers and sisters in salvation,
Be glad that Jesus saves us from damnation.
Happy are those that hope in God’s Son,
With the Lord’s right arm have they won.

Much rejoicing in heaven

Of the things I know of the holy beings above,
Is the fact the God they serve is truly love.
These are things that I must say,
So that more people know the way.

Joy and peace there is in abundance,
And absolutely no spiritual redundance.
There is joy, hope and peace,
Without any trace of disease.

They suffer no hunger nor sadness nor thirst,
Because they’ve kept God their only and first.
They have not a worry nor a care,
No can harm them nor give them a dare.

But one thing on earth does their interest in truth provoke,
Which are the one’s who take Christ’s burden and yolk.
There is much rejoicing in heaven all about,
Over a sinner who has in repentance come out.

Live not for evil but rather for good

Live not for bad things,
Live not for thoughts vile.
Live not for wicked wings,
Live not for an unholy smile.

Live for the Lord God daily,
Live for Christ Jesus in truth.
Live for the Gospel truly,
Live for abundantly bearing fruit.

Live not for vanity,
Live not for timidity.
Live not for speaking profanity,
Live not for spiritual rancidity.

Live to see the glory of God,
Live to see his Holy face.
Live to see Christ rule with his rod,
Live to see the kingdom grow in grace.

Drink It In

Drink it in
Take the cup of Jesus Christ
Drink it in
Be ye filled with His pure life
Drink His blood
And take His life into your own
Jesus Christ
The Blessed Lamb
The Holy One
The Son of God

His life is given once for all
His grace to us is free
Given as a ransom paid
The price for you and me
Drink it in
Drink in His love’s refreshing power
Drink it in
And find your strength for this dark hour
Fill your cup
And taste the sorrow of our Lord
Fill it up
And know His joy forevermore

Oh should you turn this cup away
His grace in hatred spurn
There is no more forgiveness
And your soul will ever burn

Drink it in
Take the cup of Jesus Christ
Drink it in
Be ye filled with His pure life
Drink it in
May I urge you just once more
Drink it in
Drink it in
And find His cleansing for your soul 

Keeping Secrets (Part 3) – Keep it secret when…

When tempted to reveal a secret out of pride,
Then instead in the Word of God abide.
When holding the confidence of others in honor,
Then never let faithlessness be in your corner.

When God tells you to refrain,
Then telling your secret is insane.
When secrets can cause strife,
Then have regard for your life.

When the Holy Spirit wants you to be tactful,
Then with your words be thoughtful.
When hidden things can cause sin,
Then except for the Lord hold them all within.

When Jesus’ word in the Gospel does remind,
Then let not your good deeds anyone find.
When you know you shouldn’t gossip bad,
Then don’t be a selfish lass or lad.

Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered. (Proverbs 11:13)

Keeping Secrets (Part 2) – Keeping quiet where you have to

Love the Lord your God

Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
From his love never ever depart.
Love the Lord your God with all your mind,
In the Holy Scriptures his wisdom find.

Love the Lord your God with all your soul,
From all the world make Him your goal.
Love the Lord your God with all your might,
In obeying Christ be your real delight.

Resist, Resist and Resist

Resist the Devil and let him flee,
Submit to Christ Jesus in all glee.
Make God’s word your pillar of fire,
To burn away every unclean desire.

Scaring people is the Devil’s claim,
Why don’t you rebuke him in Jesus name?
Using the shield of faith fiery darts repel,
The Church true prevails against the gates of hell.

Never mingle with deceptive evil spirits,
For these are impious counterfeits.
Desire the company of God’s people true,
For they in worship and prayer help your faith renew.

Resist temptation everyday all along,
So that you praise God in holy song
Run away from each wrong and vain thought locus,
Upon the Lord Jesus Christ always focus, focus, focus.

Seek the Lord every season

Seek the Lord every season,
Let wisdom be your reason.
Seasons come and go away,
It’s faith that is here to stay.

Seek the Lord in joy and peace,
Let your love for Him not cease.
Christ Jesus on earth did arrive,
He rose from the dead all alive.

Seek the Lord when the season ends,
Let those who believe be God’s friends.
The Holy Spirit will remind you of him,
And give you true joy to the brim.

Seek the Lord when seasons renew,
Let your praises for him be never few.
All in all love the Father who is great,
For he did truly the whole world create.

The Masterpiece 

Joyous Expectation

A reason to sing,
The coming King
The One on Whom our eyes are fixed
Who with joyous heart
He did impart
Love … Unfeigned, unmixed.
