 Re:

I have always liked this simple old song. It reminds me that we are all (to borrow from Bunyan) "pilgrims on a journey to the Celestial City." Yet we must endeavor to encourage one another as often as we can (Hebrews 10:24-25).

[b]The Servant Song[/b]
by Richard Gillard

Brother, let me be your servant
Let me be as Christ to you
Pray that I may have the grace
To let you be my servant, too

We are pilgrims on a journey
We are brothers on the road
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load

I will hold the Christlight for you
In the night-time of your fear
I will hold my hand out to you
Speak the peace you long to hear

I will weep when you are weeping
When you laugh I'll laugh with you
I will share your joy and sorrow
Till we've seen this journey through

When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony
Born of all we've known together
Of Christ's love and agony

Brother, let me be your servant
Let me be as Christ to you
Pray that I may have the grace
To let you be my servant, too

:-)

 Consider the Cost by Steve Camp...

This is another one of my favorite songs with a message. It is more or less a compilation of Scripture passages about giving your all to the Lord.

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8InK4-Jjgqo]Click HERE[/url] to listen to the song.

[b]Consider the Cost[/b]
by Steve Camp

[i]Verse 1[/i]

To obey is better than sacrifice
and to hearken than the fat of rams.
For what will a man give for his own life
-- houses or money or land?
There's a way that seems right to you,
but in the end it leads only to death.
But come unto Him all ye weary
-- come and find your rest!

[i]Chorus[/i]

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come.
To do the will of the Father
is to follow the Son!
To love Him more than father or mother!
To love Him more than your own flesh!
To give all that you are, for all that He is
-- this is the gospel according to Jesus.

[i]Verse 2[/i]

Many will say, "Lord, Lord," on that day,
"Look what we've done in Your name,
"We've prophesied and performed
many miracles
and Lord, even demons obeyed!"

Then the Lord will declare unto them
the most terriifying words of truth.
"Depart from me ye workers of iniquity,
for I have never known you!"

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come.
To do the will of the Father
is to follow the Son!
To love Him more than father or mother!
To love Him more than your own flesh!
To give all that you are, for all that He is
-- this is the gospel according to Jesus.

[i]Verse 3[/i]

Oh foolish man, how you built on the sand
trusting in your goodness to save!
For when the rain falls,
and the flood breaks the walls,
you will be swept away!

But blessed is he who builds on the Rock
-- who takes Jesus as Lord to save!
For when the rain falls,
he will endure it all
-- standing firm in His grace!

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come.
To do the will of the Father
is to follow the Son!
To love Him more than father or mother!
To love Him more than your own flesh!
To give all that you are, for all that He is
-- this is the gospel according to Jesus.

 Re: Consider the Cost by Steve Camp...

Another old, heart-searching song from Steve Camp. The song deals with a "Gospel" message that is often in word only...and how a demonstration of the Gospel is often far more valuable than a mere verbal expression or cliché.

[b]Don't Tell Them Jesus Loves Them[/b]
by Steve Camp & Rob Frazier

[i]Verse 1[/i]

Oh, the suffering souls
Crying out for love
In a world that seldom cares
See the hungry hearts
Longing to be filled
With much more than our prayers

And a young girl sells herself on Seventh Avenue
And you hear her crying out for help
Oh God, what will we do ?

[i]Chorus[/i]

Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!
Till your heart breaks from their sorrow
And the pain they're going through
With a life full of compassion
May we do what we must do
Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!

[i]Verse 2[/i]

All the desperate men
Are we reaching for the souls
That are sinking down sin?
Oh, cry for the church
We've lost our passion for the lost
And there are billions left to win

And another 40,000 children starved to death today
Would we risk all we have
To see one of them saved!?!

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!
Till your heart breaks from their sorrow
And the pain they're going through
With a life full of compassion
May we do what we must do
Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!

[i]Verse 3[/i]

Why have we waited so long
To show them Jesus lives
To share salvation's song!

Why have our hearts become so proud
That we fail to see
To love them is to love God!

And a young girl sells herself on Seventh Avenue
Hear her crying out for help
What will we do?

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]

Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!
Till your heart breaks from their sorrow
And the pain they're going through
With a life full of compassion
May we do what we must do
Don't tell them Jesus loves them
Till you're ready to love them too!

 Re: Trust His Heart

Back in 1995 when our daughter was hospitalized at St. Mary's at Saginaw, MI I was driving along when this song came on the radio; it was new to me. After the LORD called her home in Jan. 1996, I called this radio station to get info about the song...Eventually I got a recording of this song - "Praises, Three Decades of Inspirational Song" sung by the Master' Chorale. I have played this song many times, bringing comfort to this mom. Recently another sister shared how this song helped her deal with her affliction.

ginnyrose

Here it is for your inspiration:

TRUST HIS HEART by Babbie Mason

All things work for our good
though sometimes we can't see how they could
struggles that break our hearts in two
sometimes blinds us to the truth

Our Father knows what's best for us
His ways are not our own
So when your pathway grows dim, and you just can't see Him
Remember you're never alone

God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When you don't see His plan
When you can't trace His hand
Trust His heart

He sees the master plan
And He holds our future in His hands
So don't live as those who have no hope
All our hope is found in Him

We see the present clearly
But He sees the first and the last
And like a tapestry He's weaving you and me to someday be just like Him

God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When you don't see His plan
When you can't trace His hand
Trust His heart

He alone is faithful and true
He alone knows what is best for you
So when you don't understand
When you don't see His plan
When you can't trace His hand trust His heart

 Re:

Here is another song that I like. This is a different "Purify My Heart" than the "Refiner's Fire" song (which I also like). This is a simple song that I enjoy praying with the guitar when I am alone with the Lord.

[b]Purify My Heart[/b]

Purify my heart
Touch me with your cleansing fire
Take me to the cross
Your holiness is my desire

Breathe your life in me
Kindle the love
that flows from your throne

Purify my heart!
Purify my heart!

:-)

 Re:

[i]Here's one more that I love singing to the Lord! [/i]

[b]You are my all in all[/b]
Written by Dennis Jernigan

Verse 1

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

Chorus

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Verse 2

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising up again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Chorus

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Repeat Verses and Chorus

:-)

 Re: Songs with a Message...

[i]I found [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKzytJP_vV4]my favorite version[/url] of the first song that I included in this thread. It is performed by Dallas Holm (who was once David Wilkerson's worship leader). The words of this song are so powerful in their reminder about what truly matters in this short life! [/i]

[b]I'd Rather Have Jesus[/b]
by George Beverly Shea

I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I'd rather have him than have riches untold
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or land
I'd rather be led by his nail scared hands.

Than to be a king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin's dread sway
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

:-)

 Re:

Chris, I do not know how old this song is but I would guess it is of recent origin...anyways, I think it is among the most beautiful ones I have learned in recent years.

Thanks for posting this...

 The Blood is Still There (EDIT)

I am cleaning so to make the job less boring I will listen to music. I just got done listening to the Kevin Spencer family sing this song..very meaningful.

Enjoy and be blessed.

***********************************************
[b]The Blood Is Still There[/b]

by Gary Duty

One dark night d
own in Egypt,
a fearful time had come,
for one little Hebrew boy,
who was his father's first born son.

Now with the angel of death passing low,
it was hard to fall asleep.
But one little lamb stood in his mind,
as he laid there counting sheep.

He wondered why the young lamb had to die,
why his blood was on the door.
Through the wind and rain it had still remained.
But he wanted to be sure.

So he called out to his earthly Father,
with a trembling voice so scared.
Crying "Father will you please look and see,
if the blood is still there?"

He said, son now don't you worry,
for the blood is there to stay.
The winds may blow and the rain may fall,
but it just won't wash away.

The blood will stand the raging storm,
Its been applied with loving care.
Safe, secure, you can rest assured,
that the blood is still there.

Looking over all the damage,
Satan's storm had left behind.
The flood of endless questions,
and doubts had filled my mind.

The fear that gripped my troubled soul,
brought me back to my knees in prayer.
Crying "Father will you please look and see,
if the blood is still there?"

He said, son now don't you worry,
for the blood is there to stay.
The winds may blow and the rain may fall,
but it just won't wash away.

The blood will stand the raging storm,
Its been applied with loving care.
Safe, secure, you can rest assured,
that the blood is still there.

Safe, secure, you can rest assured,
that the blood is still there.
