COME IN HUMBLE FAITH

Come in humble faith before Christ’ mercy seat.
Fall in adoration before his feet.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Come in his temple to hear the Gospel story.
Lift holy hands and give him the glory.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Come join believers in songs of adoration.
Honor and praise the God of salvation.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Come to the table and eat the feast for the soul.
Eat his body, drink his blood and be made whole.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Come and receive pardon and grace.
Be warmed by the radiant light from his face.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Go with his Gospel to proclaim.
Declare forgiveness and life in his name.
Worship him and bless the Redeemer from sin.
May the songs of praise go on without end.

Keep pressing on, even when God seems silent.

God-is-not-silent

There might be times when God seems silent. When some people pray and nothing happens, they believe that God is not listening. They abandon their prayer and their faith because they believe that it useless to pray to a God who does not answer nor care about their struggles. It is easy to interpret God’s silence and a lack of interest in his creation. Some view prayer and faith as a ‘waste of time’ because God does not answer.

What might seem like God’s silence really isn’t. If you have felt this way, don’t give up on prayer nor on faith. God listens. God has something planned for you. Keep pressing on, even when God seems silent.

Have you prayed to God and nothing seems to happen? Be patient and hold on to faith. Some people might tell you that God does not exist or that praying is a waste of time. This is not true. God does exist. He does care about you, and he will never ignore you.

God answers prayer according to his will and in his own time. He will always do what is best for us. When he is ‘silent’ this a time to draw closer to him and to wait upon him. God will answer our requests and give you what you need at the right time.

Jesus is not silent concerning our needs and struggles. He hears our prayers and acts on our behalf. He speaks words of comfort and strengthens us through the Holy Spirit. You might wonder if God is silent, he is not. He speaks to us through the Son and the Holy Spirit.

May we always be reminded by the Holy Spirit that God isn’t silent. He still speaks to us. He’s telling us to hold on to faith and to press on in hope.

Don’t let doubt, the world, and the devil get you off track in the journey. God in his own way will let you know that he is present. He will not be silent. He’ll be there to guide and to bless you. Keep pressing on in faith. God is never silent.

O JESUS, IN THE DUST OF MY SINS

o jesus

O Jesus, in the dust of my sins, I come broken and in need of restoration.
I come my Savior. My spirit and soul is in need of transformation.
Holy Jesus, before your cross I kneel and make my heartfelt plea.
I come in confession. Jesus, Savior, I seek your grace and mercy.

When I’ve strayed and have gone my own way, my life fell apart.
Your Holy Spirit speaks through the Word and gives comfort to my heart.
Confronted and brought down to the dust, I come with my plea.
“I am a miserable sinner. Lord Jesus, have mercy!”

Jesus, before your cross I kneel. I look up at your face.
I cling to your cross. There I will find pardon and grace.
Savior I kneel before you with no merit of my own. Hear my plea.
“Jesus help of sinners. Be gracious and have mercy.”

Lord Jesus my hope and trust, I call upon your holy name.
Come quickly to deliver me. Let not my faith be put to shame.
Upon you I have built my faith. To you, blessed Jesus, I make my plea.
“To whom shall I go?” Only you can grant full and complete mercy.

From the cross the Savior said; “I have won your soul’s salvation.
By my grace and through faith, you have forgiveness and restoration.
You are restored and because of your faith, I’ve heard your plea.
Through my suffering, death, and resurrection, you have mercy.”

Amen! Thanks be to Jesus for his holy sacrifice. I am free!
I am no longer bound by the chains of sin, sorrow, and misery.
Jesus has restored me. He has heard my humble plea.
I’ve found at the cross peace and divine mercy.

SAVIOR, I COME

BEFORE THE CROSS
SAVIOR, I COME.

Savior, I humbly come in prayer unto thee.
I am able to stand because thou hast reached down and touched me.
O’ my Savior, for the care of my soul, I look to thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

When I suffer afflictions and am perplexed by fears unknown.
Where shall I go? I flee for refuge to thee alone.
When I seek peace from my fears, I look to thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

Poor I am, and at times forsaken, yet I am thine.
There is no greater joy and peace then in thee I find.
Yea, all my joy and my blessings flow from thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

Weary I come to thee, and I lay my head upon thy breast.
Through faith in thee, I am safe, and I have a promised rest.
All comfort and assurance comes from thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

In the journey, I’ll suffer neither pain nor loss.
Daily do I cling to thy holy cross.
All my hope and faith is built upon thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

Savior, for my sins thou suffered and thou was crucified.
Through faith in thee, I stand redeemed and justified.
The gifts of forgiveness and salvation ever come from thee.
Blessed Savior, always take care of me.

Through this earthly journey, I’ll walk and have no fear;
I am at peace, for I know that thou art near.
With thy mighty hand, thou wilt lead and guide me.
I hear thou say;, “Fear, not. I will take care of thee.”
