Through Your Mercy

 

 

I was wandering in the dark

‘cause I was dead and lost in sins

I was eradicating my ‘self’ in loss

‘cause I couldn’t cease desiring Nirvana

 

I am now washed and cleansed

As the Spirit of God begets me from above

I am now found and flourished

As my ‘self’ is home in Imago Dei once again

 

God has created in me a new heart

As Jesus is welcome to my heart anew

The Holy Ghost gives life to my poor body

So that I may walk on earth with heaven in sight

 

Never shall I fear evils or foes in this life and beyond

I know Your mercy is new, fresh, and sufficient all the way

Never shall I boast about my walk or my works again

It was, is, and will be, solely through Your mercy I am saved

 

Inspiration from Titus 3:5; Eph.2:1-2; Romans 8:10-11; Lamentations 3:22

Wisdom-Seekers

 

Wisdom that enriches life is everywhere
Let one who lives seek it anywhere

Who is entitled to wisdom so special?
To him who asks God for it in prayer

Christ alone is God’s wisdom in person
Let’s take heed to Jesus’ calling in action

Pastor-teachers are bearers of the Light
Let us seek wisdom from them in the Word

 

Inspiration from Proverbs 1-2, James 1:5-6, 1 Corinthians 1:24, Malachi 2:7

Our faith Comes of Age

 

God has made it possible for us to believe

Our faith then must be nurtured to grow;

As the Scriptures helps us to come to Jesus

So, let us lose no time to believe in Jesus

 

 

God has promised us all that we need

Food and clothes are only what He adds;

As we live under His reign and rule of life

So, worries for morrow are gone and out of life

 

God has spoken to us in His living Word

Faith comes as, what He says, we truly heed;

As we believe all that the Scriptures teaches,

So, our faith in God will surely come of age

 

Inspiration from Matthew 6:33; Romans 10:17; Psalm 69;11; John 5:39

The Work of Faith

 

Precious is the faith inherited
From the saints
For that faith, we must defend together,
To the end

 

Objective is the faith instructed
In the Word
To that faith, we must align ourselves,
in real life

 

Decisive is how God acts in Christ
For our good
Divine gift of life, we all must accept
In good faith

 

As a good tree bears good and pleasant fruit
In its time;
So does the faith handed down to us all
In due time

 

Thessalonians bear good fruit of faith
Obviously
Paul the Apostle calls it ‘work of faith’
So plainly

 

Inspiration from 1 Thessalonians 1; Jude 3;
Matthew 7:17-18; James 2:14-26

My Shepherd

 

God looks down from heaven and sees us all
To Him I will look up in the mornings
He will never let me down
This, I will always believe

 

He listens to me from His throne above
I will seek His face and favor in faith
He will come to our rescue
He is truly our Captain

 

The LORD does make me strong in grace afresh
As He takes sides with me in the battle
He gives me favor unmerited
I leap for joy He bestows

 

I will hold, My Shepherd, dear to my heart
You are all that I need now and always
Never shall I fear evils
I know you are there for me

 

Inspiration from Psalm 23

Let Your Will Be Done

 

When life seems unfair and the future uncertain
Help and steadfast hope, our God shall truly give
Of this He promises us in all the Scriptures
Let us take them to our hearts seriously

When road gets tough and the going slippery
Strength and stamina, the LORD will surely grant
This, He provides for us through the Holy Spirit
Let us abide by the command constantly

When the hardest hits us; We are at loss what to do
One thing we must ask God is ‘Let Your will be done, O LORD!’
Whatever He wills is good and remains best for us
No matter how we are, ‘Let Your will be done for us, A men!’

 

Inspiration from Matthew 26:42; 6:9-13
