 Re: Songs with a Message...

The Haven of Rest

My soul in sad exile was out on life's sea,
so burdened with sin and distressed,
Till I heard a sweet Voice saying, "make me your choice,"
And I entered the Haven of Rest.

Chorus
I've anchored my soul
In the "Haven of Rest,
I'll sail the wide seas no more;
The tempest may sweep o'er the wild stormy deep;
In Jesus, I'm safe evermore.

I yielded myself to His tender embrace,
And faith taking hold of the Word,
My fetters fell off,
And I anchored my soul;
The "Haven of Rest" is my Lord.

How Precious the thought that we all may recline,
Like John the beloved and blest,
On Jesus strong arm,
Where no tempest can harm,
Secure in the "Haven of Rest."

O come to the Savior, He patiently waits
To save by His Power Divine,
Come, anchor your soul
In the "Haven of Rest",
And say,
"My Beloved is mine."

It is my hearts desire to anchor my soul in His
Rest, and I know He won't fail me.
I long to lay my head on His Breast, like John
the beloved.

May He bless you, one and all today.

In His Service
Nellie :-)

 Re: Songs with a Message...

For several months now on a daily basis almost i listen to the CD "Quiet Times" by Pastor Carter Conlon of Time Square Church. (David Wilkersons church). It's only $8.00 for CD and $6 for cassette. It's all "worship" and very soft as Pastor Carter Conlon sings. It's so awesome. The best i've heard in ages song for song on one CD.
Go to David Wilkersons main site and click on music and movies at the bottom of the page, then scroll and order it. You will be glad you did.

 Re: Songs with a Message...

This is a hard question to answer. It depends on the mood I am in. If I am in a "got to kick the enemy in the butt" mood then it is Micah Stampley 'War Cry'. If I am a "lost" mood then Tammy Trent 'My Irreplaceable' is my song. But my number one song I love to listen to any more

'BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE
Vicki Yohe

Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I will lift my voice and say
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”

Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I will lift my voice and say
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”

You see you are
Jehovah Jireh my provider
Jehovah Nissi Lord you reign in victory
Jehovah Shalom you are my prince of peace
And I worship you because of who you are

Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I give you praise
Because of who you are I will lift my voice and say
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”
“Lord I worship you because of who you are”

You see you are
Jehovah Jireh my provider
Jehovah Nissi Lord you reign in victory
Jehovah Shalom you are my prince of peace
And I worship you because of who you are

AND I WORSHIP YOU BECAUSE OF WHO ARE

It's a gospel song which is weird because I tend to lean more towards contempory music.

 Re:

Hello...

Wow...these songs and hymns are quite moving!
Here is rather simple song that I love to sing/pray to the Lord:

[b]Jesus, Draw Me Close[/b]
[i]Author Unknown[/i]

Jesus, draw me close
Closer Lord to you
Let the world around me
fade away.

Jesus, draw me close
Closer Lord to you
For I desire to worship
and obey.

:-)

 Re: Songs with a message....

ccchhhrrriiisss,

You set a hard task, as some have said. I can't answer yet as still musing over it, but the words of your little ditty are very attractive and I wonder if there's a way of sharing the tune?

Quote:
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.



this is the one I can't even sing, lately... I even tried just saying the words to someone and I had to stop several times!

Jesus Is Alive

Hallelujah Jesus is alive
Death has lost its victory
And the grave has been denied
Jesus lives forever
He's alive He's alive

He's the Alpha and Omega
The first and last is He
The curse of sin is broken
And we have perfect liberty
The Lamb of God is risen
He's alive He's alive

Hallelujah Jesus is alive

[b]And Can It Be That I Should Gain[/b] has always been special for me.

 Re: Songs with a message.....


And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain—
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! How can it be,
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine.
’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.
’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
Let angel minds inquire no more.

He left His Father’s throne above
So free, so infinite His grace—
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For O my God, it found out me!
’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For O my God, it found out me!

Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

Still the small inward voice I hear,
That whispers all my sins forgiven;
Still the atoning blood is near,
That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven.
I feel the life His wounds impart;
I feel the Savior in my heart.
I feel the life His wounds impart;
I feel the Savior in my heart.

No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

 Re: Songs with a Message...

Genesis 32
1 And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.
30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.

(Israel: A prince of God, Peniel:The face of God)


This is a hymn by Charles Wesley, which I have cried my way through many times.

The tunes which I know, are not available online, but, it is still worth singing them through once for the sheer challenge, encouragement and, blessing of them (tunes below).

Meter 8.8.8.8.8.8.


Come, O Thou Traveller unknown,
Whom still I hold, but cannot see;
My company before is gone
And I am left alone with Thee;
With Thee all night I mean to stay
And wrestle till the break of day.

I need not tell Thee who I am,
My misery or sin declare,
Thyself hast called me by Thy name,
Look on Thy hands and read it there;
But who, I ask Thee, who art Thou?
Tell me Thy name and tell me now.

Yeild to me now, for I am weak,
But confident in self-despair:
Speak to my heart, in blessings speak,
Be conquered by my instant prayer;
Speak, or Thou never hence shalt move,
And tell me if Thy name is Love.

'Tis Love! 'tis Love, Thou diedst for me;
I hear Thy whisper in my heart:
The morning breaks, the shadows flee;
Pure Universal Love Thou art;
To me, to all Thy bowels move;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

My prayer hast power with God, the grace
Unspeakable I now receive,
Through faith I see Thee faith to face,
I see Thee face to face, and live;
In vain I have not wept and strove;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

I know Thee, Saviour, who Thou art,
Jesus, the feeble sinner's Friend;
Nor wilt Thou, with the night depart,
But stay and love me to the end;
Thy mercies never shalt remove;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

Contented now, upon my thigh
I halt, till life's short journey end;
All helplessness, all weakness I
On Thee alone for strength depend,]
Nor have I power from Thee to move;
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

Lame as I am, I take the prey,
Hell, earth and sin with ease o'ercome;
I leap for joy, pursue my way,
And as a bounding hart fly home,
Through all eternity to prove
Thy nature and Thy name is Love.


EDIT: A tune called Mozart on this page

- almost a dance tune - cheers this along. EDIT end.
