 Songs with a Message...

Hello...!

After having read the thread about music, I was wondering if there are any songs or hymns that have meant a great deal to you as of late?

There is a song that I have been listening to lately that has meant alot to me.
Its entitled, [i]I'd Rather Have Jesus[/i] by George Beverly Shea.
The rendition that I have been listening to is by Dallas Holm:

[b]I'd Rather Have Jesus[/b]

Quote:
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.

Does anyone else have a song that has encouraged, convicted, or moved your heart closer to the heart of Jesus?

:-)

Now that is something.

I don't think it's "depressing" to discuss burial or whatever plans with a member of your family, because at Church, the "Memorial Services" for the Saved, were a time of rejoicing for Where they were (mixed with tears of course) and would turn into a Worship Service.
I love and would request the Pastor to "Always" give the Salvation message with the "how to" at the end.

Anyhow ... that was the song I told my husband I wanted if he ever had to do a Memorial Service for me. (o: }

Somewhere's, I think there are even more verses, no ?

Also, I like "It is well with my soul", and many others also, but it's funny that you posted that one.

Kinda Neat ! :-)
Thanks !

There is a fountain filled with blood,
Drawn from Emmanuel's veins.
And sinners plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.

Many, many more.

Yes, this song is blessing to me also. It became more meaningful to me when I read the story behind the song.
Here is another thread about that - [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=5649&forum=35#41353]thread[/url]

 Re:

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.

In simple trust like theirs who heard,
Beside the Syrian sea,
The gracious calling of the Lord,
Let us, like them, without a word,
Rise up and follow Thee.

O Sabbath rest by Galilee,
O calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee
The silence of eternity,
Interpreted by love!

With that deep hush subduing all
Our words and works that drown
The tender whisper of Thy call,
As noiseless let Thy blessing fall
As fell Thy manna down.

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.

Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.

Frederick C. Maker, 1887

probly my favourite i get goosebumps when i sing the last verse

 Re:

Mercy came Running
Once there was a holy place
Evidence of God's embrace
And I can almost see mercy's face
Pressed against the veil
Looking down with longing eyes
Mercy must have realized
That once His blood was sacrificed
Freedom would prevail
And as the sky grew dark
And the earth began to shake
With justice no longer in the way

Mercy came running
Like a prisoner set free
Past all my failures to the point of my need
When the sin that I carried
Was all I could see
And when I could not reach mercy
Mercy came running to me

Once there was a broken heart
Way too human from the start
And all the years left it torn apart
Hopeless and afraid
Walls I never meant to build
Left this prisoner unfulfilled
Freedom called but even still
It seemed so far away
I was bound by the chains
From the wages of my sin
Just when I felt like giving in
Sometimes I still feel so far
So far from where I really should be
He gently calls to my heart
Just to remind me

and

Mercy Seat
In the darkness where everything is unknown.
I face the power of sin on my own.
I did not know of a place I could go.
Where I could find a way to heal my wounded soul.
He said that I could come into His presence without fear.
Into the Holy place where His mercy hovers near.
I'm runnin, I'm runnin, I'm runnin to the mercy seat.
Where Jesus is callin, He said His grace would cover me.
His blood will flow freely, it will provide the healin.
I'm runnin to the mercy seat.
I'm runnin to the mercy seat.
Are you livin where hope has not been?
You're lost in the curse of a lifetime of sin.
Lovely illusions they never come true.
I know where there's a place of mercy for you.
He said that you could come into His presence without fear.
Into this Holy place where His mercy hovers near. Come runnin, come runnin, come runnin to the mercy seat.
Where Jesus is callin, He said His grace would cover you.
His blood will, flow freely it will provide the healin.
Come runnin to the mercy seat.
I'm runnin to the mercy seat.
He said that you could come into His presence with fear.
Into this Holy place where His mercy hovers near..

I always love songs about his mercy. Where would we be without it?

 Re: Songs with a Message...

Hi everyone,
I'm happy to share this with you all.
This song and others on this site,(which I will also share) have touched my spirit so...
I feel like it is the Lord speaking to me.
I truly thank Him so much for music like this.
(And to think I used to love rap!!!)
Here are the words:

I can see, Your Hand
molding me into
a new man

through the fire
and through the trials
You’re purging out my old desires

You’re making me new


And I perceive Your love
in the gentle way in which You’ve helped me
So tenderly as with a child
You’ve nourished me as I’ve been growing

And I want to thank You

This is set to classical guitar-
Please check out the site.[url=http://www.deerparkwashingtondisciples.net/believers/main.php]
It is under music for Kingdom life
then: on the streets
believers reflections track 3

the other reflections and appeals are great, too.
I hope everyone will be as blessed by these as I have.
Have a great day everyone!

Mary

 Re:

This old song, by Don Francisco, is rather blunt -- but the message comes across quite effectively.
It is directed to the church.
It brings to mind the passage found in [i]I Corinthians chapter 13[/i].

[b]STEEPLE SONG[/b]

[i]Verse 1[/i]
I don't care how many buses you own
Or the size of your sanctuary.
It doesn't matter how steep your steeple is
If it's sittin' on a cemetery.
I don't care if you pave your parking lot
Or put pads upon your pews -
What good is picture perfect stage
If you're missing all the cues?

[i]Verse 2[/i]
I don't care if your pastor's super-powered
And your program's always new
What you need is love and truth
And men are going to come to you
It doesn't matter that you know the Bible
If it's all just in your head
The thing I need to ask you is
Have you done the things I said?

[i]Chorus[/i]
Do you love your wife?
For her and for your children
Are you layin' down your life?
What about the others?
Are you livin' as a servant to
Your sisters and your brothers?
Do you make the poor man beg you for a bone?
Do the widow and the orphan cry alone?

[i]Verse 3[/i]
I don't care if you pray for miracles
I don't care if you speak with tongues
I don't care if you said you love Me
In every song you've sung
It doesn't matter that your sacrifice of praise
Is loud enough to raise the dead
The thing I need to ask you is
Have you done the things I said?

[i]Chorus 2[/i]
Do you love your wife?
With all that is inside you
Are you layin' down your life?
What about the others?
Are you livin' as a servant to
Your sisters and your brothers?
Do you make the poor man beg you for a bone?
Do the widow and the orphan cry alone?

[i]Ending Verse[/i]
Lord, when were You a prisoner
That we did not come to You?
When was it that we saw You sick
That we didn't follow through?

Every time you turned your head
And pretended not to see
When you did it not to the least of these
You did it not to Me.

:-)

HYMN / I'VE FOUND A FRIEND
AUTHOR/ J. G. Small, 1863
COMPOSER/ George C. Stebbins, 1878

TOPIC/ Love of Christ for us

SCRIPTURAL ALLUSION;
[1]1 John 4:19, Hosea 11:4
[2]Matt 22:37
[3]Matt 28:18
[4]Rom 8:38-39


WORDS;

1
I've found a Friend; oh, such a Friend!
He loved me ere I knew Him;
He drew me with the cords of love,
And thus He bound me to Him.
And 'round my heart still closely twine
Those ties which nought can sever,
For I am His, and He is mine,
Forever and forever.

2
I've found a Friend; oh, such a Friend!
He bled, He died to save me;
And not alone the gift of life,
But His own self He gave me.
Nought that I have my own I call,
I hold it for the Giver;
My heart, my strength, my life my all,
Are His, and His forever.

3
I've found a Friend; oh, such a Friend!
All power to Him is given;
To guard me on my upward course,
And bring me safe to heaven.
The eternal glories gleam afar,
To nerve my faint endeavor;
So now to watch, to work, to war,
And then to rest forever.

4
I've found a Friend; oh, such a Friend!
So kind, and true, and tender,
So wise a counselor and guide,
So mighty a defender.
From Him, who loveth me so well,
What power my soul can sever?
Shall life or death, or earth, or hell?
No; I am His forever.
