The Master Sculptor



The sculptor saw inside the rock,
A beauty no one else could see.
He chiseled the rough spots away
Until the prisoner was free.

The master has a plan in mind
For each one, a unique design.
He chips away with tender touch
As the stubborn heart He refines.

Oh, let us be your masterpiece
And bring the glory to your name.
Then we may shine as a bright light
While your love and grace we proclaim.

Songs in the Night




When darkness surrounds
And trials abound
Though no light appears
Lord I know you are near.

Chorus:  You give me songs in the night,
             Joy in the morning,
              Strength for the day,
              And hope for eternity.

When my world looks bleak
your face I will seek
You say you'd won't leave
And Jesus I believe.

Chorus:   You give me songs in the night,
              Joy in the morning,
              Strength for the day,
              And hope for eternity.

My blessings increase
Of  love, grace, and peace.
You died to save me
Soon heaven I will see.

Chorus:   You give me songs in the night,
              Joy in the morning,
              Strength for the day,
              And hope for eternity.

Thanksgiving

Training my mind to treasure
His abundant gifts of love
As I stop to look around
Noticing nature’s beauty
Keeping track of these blessings
Seeking moments with the Father
Giving Him all the glory
Identifying His presents
Verbalizing my gratitude
Inscribing it on my heart
Never forgetting
God’s munificent measure of mercy

My Comfort

Father smooth the bumps of life away
Brighten my path with light each day
Give me songs in darkest night
Oh my joy and delight
Calm my anxious heart
Never depart
When I cry
Hold my
Hand

Through God's Eyes



I am like this pumpkin;
bruised, discolored, oddly shaped
found out in the field
God holds me up
looking at me with joy
His love for me shines in His eyes

Thank You Lord


Thank you for the sun’s warming rays
and  sunsets that amaze
Thank you for blessings of each day
 for listening while I pray
Thank you Lord

Thank you for stars up in the sky
 for tree branches so high
Thank you for a child’s cherished grin
and babies soft, soft skin
Thank you Lord

Thank you for storms you help us through
Trials  bring us close to you
Thank you for times our money’s spent
For  grace that  heaven sent
Thank you Lord

Thank you for comfort from a friend
and for the rain  you send
Thank you for the cooling breeze
 beauty of the deep blue seas
Thank you Lord

Add your own verse to this song
Come praise Him, sing along
Write down your blessings one by one
Keep singing till you’re done
Thank you Lord
