Build a Bridge To You

I’ll build a bridge to be near you.

In Christ I’m new

I’ll lay sweet planks

of love and thanks


I’ll sing to you a special song

my whole life long

sing Psalms to praise

Your mighty ways


I’ll read the Bible every day

I will obey

to You I’ll pray

Let’s talk today

Tiny Treasures

Tiny treasures

planted in my path.

Permit me to perceive

these gifts as gems from you, God;

then utter praise.

Admit you’re the giver

Affirm my faith

You Take My Breath Away

When in the dark of night
I see your starry sky
Your splendor from on high
You take my breath away.

Chorus:
You take my breath away
each and every day
Your amazing ways
inspire my praise,
You take my breath away

When I go for a walk
I hear birds’ melody
Then your voice calls to me
You take my breath away.

Chorus:
You take my breath away
each and every day
Your amazing ways
inspire my praise,
You take my breath away.

When your wind blows my hair
and whispers in the trees
I feel your majesty
You take my breath away.

Chorus:
You take my breath away
each and every day
Your amazing ways
inspire my praise,
You take my breath away.


Your death upon the cross
from sin has set me free
And now your love I see
You take my breath away.

Chorus:
You take my breath away
each and every day.
Your amazing ways
inspire my praise
You take my breath away.

Home Run

Sometimes life’s like a baseball game;

though it may not bring you fame.

Perhaps you’ve been thrown a curve ball

and your back’s up against a wall.



You long to run around each base,

but you have to walk, you can’t race.

In life you can’t stand to go slow.

You don’t want to stop, you must go.



Then there’s that moment you strike out,

all of your abilities you doubt.

No longer do you want to play,

on the bench is the place to stay.


Then you finally hit the mark

and the ball soars out of the park.

You feel this game of life you’ve won

when you hit your golden home run.

A Longing

Home

Sweet Place

Sacred space

Can’t be replaced

Familiar faces

and cherished embraces

Memories galore are stored

within the walls, inside its doors

God’s placed a longing for home in us

Put on a Happy Face

Smile and put on your happy face.

Don’t you dare complain or grumble.

Positive thoughts you must embrace;

though in life you take a tumble.


At times on your face there’s a frown,

when heartache comes and you are sad.

But then you should turn it around.

Use your smile to make others glad.


A smile is great to give away.

When someone’s down it gives them cheer.

How many can you give today?

It can remove despair and drear.


A smile another’s life can touch

by making them their pain forget.

It really doesn’t cost you much,

but what a big return you get.

Recognize Your Blessings

Recognize each blessing God gives,

then name it to make it more real.

By these gifts you know your God lives;

then at mention of His name, kneel.


Let your mouth pour forth His praise

as gratitude flows in your heart.

Show Him honor all of your days

and never from His ways depart.


These blessings show your God is near.

He’ll never leave or forsake you.

So remember and never fear

all problems He will get you through.
