No Greater Love Than This
There's no greater love,
and no greater right,
than a true friend
to lay down his life.
In the heat of the battle,
when the death mist abounds,
as bullets and bombs
go screeching around,
a champion comes forward
and steps in my shoes,
He lays down his life,
a friendship in view.
God is Love, Love Sublime.
My God has loved me through all time.
A love so deep, so wide, so true,
I cannot fathom it. Can you?
I search for Him, stumble, fall
And just for me He gave His all.
He gently beckons, come, each day.
Things of this life, they call, I stray.
Patiently He waits, . . . .with tears.
I struggle on: He knows my fears.
Lord lead me back to you I plead.
To be with you, is all I need.
Father, draw me to your side.
There in you presence, I can hide.
I feel your love, it's so secure.
God is Love. His love is pure!

The Christian Walk
I'm a follower of Jesus
a disciple of the Lord,
I've learned from my Master,
of the Gospel road.
My sandals are on,
my provisions are bought,
I'm set to start
the journey taught.
Where He leads,
is where I'll go,
for that's my goal.
who is the image of the invisible God;
the firstborn of every creature. For
by him were all things created that
are in earth, visible and invisible;
whether they be thrones, dominions
or principalities or powers: All things
were created by him and for him,
and he is before all things, and by
him all things consist.
Colossians 1 : 16~17
Do I have a debt to pay You:
Is there something that I owe?
How can I make amends now:
Is there somewhere I must go?
What should I use for payment:
Is there something that You need?
With a humble heart I'm asking,
Is there something I can't see?
No, My son there really isn't.
There is nothing you must do.
It's in asking Me the question,
That I am very pleased with you.
If your heart is beating right,
And you're turning from your sin.
Just receive My loving mercy,
That is why I've given Him.
My Son has paid the debt in full:
There is nothing that you owe.
He chose the way of the cross:
There is nowhere you must go.
In His body was ample payment:
There is nothing that I need.
Because your heart was truly broken,
I'll give you so much more to see.
Your accounts have all been settled:
"It is finished," ...just for you.
He's My Son - I dearly love Him
And through Him, ...I love you too.
So, worry not about payments,
Just give your heart to Him.
Because it was the blood of Jesus,
...that paid the price of sin.
