In the Shadow of the Cross

In the shadow of the cross

while hand in hand we walk

I will share my heart as we talk

in the shadow of the cross.


In the shadow of the cross

my sin at last I see

your precious blood has set me free

in the shadow of the cross.


In the shadow of the cross

I’ll meet with You each day

and from Your love I’ll never stray

In the shadow of the cross.

We Wait in Hope

We cry to the LORD

(to the LORD)

who hears and rescues us

(rescues us)

We trust in Him

Our mighty God

( Mighty God)


Our times are in

(times are in)

His hands.

(His hands)



When the storms arise

(storms arise)

He is our shield and help

(shield and help)

He guides our lives

(He guides our lives)

and lights our path.

(lights our path)

We wait in hope

(wait in hope)

for Him.

(for Him)

Refuge of My Soul

I lift up my eyes to the LORD,

the maker of heaven and earth.

Because He’s my helper I will 
 
not fear what man can do to me.


I seek my LORD every day.

He rescues me from all my fear.

He is the refuge of my soul

and I pour out my heart to Him.


Jesus, the lover of my soul

He supplies every need I have.

I’ll pray and thank Him no matter 
 
what – for that is God’s will for me.

Give Me Jesus

Give me Jesus when I awake

May my faith be real, never fake.

May I by His side always stay

as I read His word and obey.



Give me Jesus now every hour.

He’s my strong and mighty tower.

Whene’er I need some help to cope,

remind me that He is my hope.



Give me Jesus throughout the night

until the dawn brings morning light.

I’ll thank Him for glorious grace

and Holy Spirit’s sweet embrace.



Give Me Jesus when my life ends

and His angels my soul attend.

for now and through eternity.

Give me Jesus, Give me Jesus!

A Golden Life

My life is like a golden treasure chest

running over with gems of which I’m blest.

Memories like diamonds shine in my mind.

Like a prospector, gold nuggets I find.



Sixty-six years of blessings, I confess.

Then to God my gratitude I express.

He has smiled and rained blessings all around.

Each raindrop shines like a jewel on the ground.



If I forget how good God’s been to me

I’ll open up the treasure chest and see

all the ways my life with gold is arrayed.

Then I’ll thank Him for the love He’s displayed.



Each day He blesses me with new treasure

which bestows pleasures beyond all measure.

Precious gifts He gives to me each new day.

My Father knows just how His love to display.



The best treasure I have is eternal life.

Where I will be away from earthly strife.

Then this blessed woman will walk streets of gold

and my Father’s presence at last behold.

Longing to Soar

How should I be seen

As caterpillar crawling


Or a soaring butterfly

Learn to Dance During Life's Rain

At times we yearn for days gone by

when we were young, we'd never die.


No falt'ring steps, our legs were strong.


Nothing with our health could go wrong.



Our eyes now dim, we cannot see;


we cry "What has become of me?"


We strain to hear our loved one's voice.


Now hearing aids must be our choice.



We cannot dwell upon the past.


Live to the fullest while life lasts.


Our God still has blessings in store


before we reach that final shore.



Open our eyes so we can see


how to serve others, this our plea.


Help us not grumble or complain,


but learn to dance during life's rain.
