 Re:

The Ninety and Nine

By Elizabeth C. Celphane (1868)

There were ninety and nine that safely lay
In the shelter of the fold,
But one was out on the hills away,
Far off from the gates of gold,
Away on the mountains wild and bare,
Away from the tender Shepherd's care,
Away from the tender Shepherd's care.

Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
Are they not enough for Thee?
But the Shepherd made an answer:
"This of mine has wandered away from Me,
And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find my sheep,
I go to the desert to find my sheep."

But none of the ransomed ever knew
How deep were the waters crossed;
Nor how dark was the night
That the Lord passed thro'
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
Out in the desert He heard its cry,
Sick and helpless and ready to die,
Sick and helpless and ready to die.

Lord, whence are those blood drops all the way,
That mark out the mountain's track?
They were shed for one who had gone astray
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.
Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?
They're pierced tonight by many a thorn,
They're pierced tonight by many a thorn.

But all thro' the mountains, thunder riv'n,
And up from the rocky steep,
There arose a glad cry to the gate of heav'n:
"Rejoice! I have found My sheep!"
And the angels echoed around the throne,
"Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own,
Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!"

 Re:

[b]Living in Laodicea[/b]
by Steve Camp

[i]Verse 1[/i]
Oh Lord, take Your plow to my fallowed ground
Let Your blade dig down to the soil of my soul
For I've become dry and dusty, Lord I know there must be
Richer earth lying below

[i]Chorus[/i]:
For I've been living in Laodicea
And the fire that once burned bright, I've let it grow dim
And the very Word I swore that I would die for all has been forgotten
As the world's become my friend

[i]Verse 2[/i]
We have turned from Your Law to try to find a better way
Each man does today what is right in his own eyes
We will pay the price for our sinning
We can never know true living, we've exchanged His truth for lies

REPEAT CHORUS

[i]Verse 3[/i]
It is no small of a thing that He's done for you
By shutting the gates of hell upon the cross
We were sentenced once but now we are pardoned
And He chooses to use us though we fall

[i]Chorus 2[/i]
So while we're living in Laodicea
Keep the fire burning bright, don't let it grow dim
For the very Word we swore that we would die for, it must not be forgotten
Fear the world become a friend

For the very Word we swore that we would die for, it must not be forgotten

:-)

 Re:

[b]Your Love Broke Through[/b]
by Keith Green

VERSE 1

Like a foolish dreamer
trying to build a highway to the sky,
All my hopes would come tumbling down
and I never knew just why

Until today, when you pulled away the clouds
that hung like curtains on my eyes,
Well I've been blind all these wasted years
and I though I was so wise,

But then you took me by surprise.

CHORUS

Like waking up from the longest dream
how real it seemed
until your love broke through!

I've been lost in a fantasy
that blinded me
Until your love broke through!


VERSE 2

All my life I've been searching
for that crazy missing part
And with one touch, you just rolled away
the stone that held my heart

And now I see that the answer was as easy,
as just asking you in
And I am so sure I could never doubt
your gentle touch again,

It's like the power of the wind.


CHORUS 2

Like waking up from the longest dream,
how real it seemed,
until your love broke through,

I've been lost in a fantasy
that blinded me,
Until your love broke through.

:-)

 Re:

This is a song that I heard shortly after coming to the Lord. It has always felt so familiar to my own heart's cry. - Chris

[b]Oh, I Want to Know You More[/b]
by Steve Fry

[u]Verse 1[/u]
Just the time
I feel that I've
been caught
in the mire of self.

And just the time
I feel my mind's
been bought
by worldly wealth.

That's when the breeze
begins to blow
I know its the Spirit's Call.
And all my worldly wanderings
just melt into His Love.

[u]Chorus[/u]
Oh, I want to know You more!
Deep within my soul
I want to know You,
Oh, I want to know You!

To feel Your Heart
and know Your Mind,
To look in Your eyes
stirs up within me,
a cry that says I want to know You.

Oh, I want to know You more.
Oh, I want to know You more!

[u]Verse 2[/u]
When my daily deeds
ordinarily
lose their life and song,
my heart begins to bleed,
and my sensitivity
to Him is gone.

I've run the race
but set my own pace
and feel like a shattered soul,
But the Gentle Arms of Jesus
bring my hungering to be made whole.

[u]Chorus 2[/u]
Oh, I want to know You more!
Deep within my soul
I want to know You,
Oh, I want to know You!

And I would give my final breath
to know You in Your Death
and Ressurrection,
My heart cries out I want to know You.

Oh, I want to know You more.
Oh, I want to know You more!

:-)

 Re:

[i]This is a song that I first saw on a Bible cartoon shortly after coming to Christ. I have always liked the words which are taken from Matthew 13:45-46. It reminds me of the day that I came to Christ as a young teen...after reading Matthew 11:28-30. I cried out to God...telling Him that I would trade all that I was...and all that I would ever be...if I could just know Him...and be His friend.[/i] - Chris

You can hear this song on Rhapsody by [url=http://www.rhapsody.com/player?type=undefined&id=tra.17330915&remote=undefined&page=undefined&pageregion=undefined&guid=undefined&from=undefined&__pcode=]clicking here[/url].

[b]The Pearl[/b]

All that I have,
I'll sell all that I have
to hold in my hand
the pearl.

Nothing I have
can compare with the prize
when I hold in my hand
the pearl.

Brighter than sun,
clearer than glass,
dearer than gold...
the pearl.

Kingdom of God,
it's the Kingdom of God,
it's life with my Lord...
the pearl.

All that I have is ashes, is earth,
now that I've seen
the pearl.

And I will not rest;
I cannot be content
'til at last it is mine,
forever to shine,
the Kingdom of God...
the pearl.

Let me gather everything I own,
all that in this dreary world I've known.
Treasures and possessions now I bring...
trade them for one single shining thing.

All that I have is ashes, is earth,
now that I've seen the pearl.
And I will not rest,
I cannot be content
'til at last it is mine,
forever to shine,
the Kingdom of God...
the pearl.

:-)

 Re:

I listed this song some time ago, but I was very moved by it this morning. In fact, I am deeply moved every time I hear it. You can listen to this song by [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVgPQm06g2c]clicking here[/url].

[b]O' Lord, You're Beautiful[/b]
(original version)
[i]Keith Green[/i]

[i]I listen to this song often. It has always moved my heart and draws me back into a hunger for His presence[/i].

[i]Verse[/i]

Oh Lord, you're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
And when your eyes are on this child
Your love abounds to me

Oh Lord, my body's tired
But you keep reminding me
Of many holy tireless men
Who spilled their blood for thee

[i]Chorus[/i]

I want to take your word and shine it all around
But first help me just to live it Lord
And if I'm doing well help me to never make a sound
Except to give you all the glory

[i]Verse[/i]

Oh Lord, my faith is small
And I need a touch from you
Your Book of Books
Lies undisturbed
And the prayers from me too few

Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clear
Replace the lamp of my first love
That's fueled with holy fear

Oh Lord, you're beautiful
Your face is all I seek
And when your eyes are on this child
Your love abounds to me.

:-)

 Re:

Another good Keith Green song. You can hear it by [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd9MaBu3gAg]CLICKING HERE[/url].

[b]Make my life a prayer to you[/b]
Words by Melody Green
Music by Keith Green

[i]Verse[/i]

Make my life a prayer to you
I wanna do what you want me to
No empty words and no white lies
No token prayers, no compromise

I want to shine the light you gave
Through your Son you sent to save us
From ourselves and our despair
It comforts me to know you're really there

[i]Chorus[/i]

Well I want to thank you now
For being patient with me
Oh its so hard to see
When my eyes are on me

I guess I'll have to trust
And just believe what you say
Oh you're coming again
Coming to take me away

[i]Verse[/i]

I wanna die and let you give
Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope you gave me
The love that set me free!

I want to tell the world out there
that You're not some fable or fairy tale
That I've made up inside my head
You're God the Son and you've risen from the dead!

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Well I want to thank you now
For being patient with me
Oh its so hard to see
When my eyes are on me

I guess I'll have to trust
And just believe what you say
Oh you're coming again
Coming to take me away

[i]Repeat Verse[/i]

I wanna die and let you give
Your life to me so I might live
And share the hope you gave me
The love that set me free

:-)

 Re:

This is a simple song that I like to play on my guitar when I am alone or with my wife. It serves as a simple reminder of the central focus of all of our pursuits (to know our Lord) and just why I attempt to play music or sing. You can hear it by [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-GEux8FE-M]clicking here[/url].

[b]IF I STAND[/b]
Words and Music by Rich Mullins

[i]Verse 1[/i]

There's more that rises in the morning
Than the sun
And more that shines in the night
Than just the moon
It's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger
Than this room

[i]Verse 2[/i]

And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance
I owe only to the giver
Of all good things

[i]CHORUS: [/i]

So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

[i]Verse 3[/i]

There's more that dances on the prairies
Than the wind
More that pulses in the ocean
Than the tide
There's a love that is fiercer
Than the love between friends
More gentle than a mother's
When her baby's at her side

[i]Repeat Verse 2[/i]

And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegence
I owe only to the Giver
Of all good things

[i]Repeat CHORUS(2x)[/i]

So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home.

:-)

 Re:

This is my favorite rendition of the 23rd Psalm. I somehow think that David sang it with the same sort of passion as another Jewish man, Keith Green.

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMUQEI0CLQM]Click here[/url] to listen to the song.

I wasn't going to bother posting the lyrics, since it is taking pretty much exclusively from Psalm 23. However, here they are:

[b]The LORD is my Shepherd (Psalm 23)[/b]
Words by King David
Music by Keith Green

[i]Verse 1[/i]

The lord is my sheperd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul
And guides my path in righteousness
For his name's sake.

[i]Chorus[/i]

Surely goodness and loving kindness
Shall follow me al the days of my life.
And i will dwell in the house of the lord
Forever and ever and ever.

[i]Verse 2[/i]

Though i walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I will not fear, thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table
Before me in the presence of my enemies.

[i]Verse 3[/i]

Thou anointest my head with oil
My cup's overflowing

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Surely goodness and loving kindness
Shall follow me al the days of my life.
And i will dwell in the house of the lord
Forever and ever and ever.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I shall not want.

:-)
