 Re:

Check out Stephanie Staple's music at www.stephaniestaples.com

Bid Me Come to You (from the album Breath On Me)

Vs 1: I don't want to stay here
I've only come half way
I've seen you in the clouds
But I'm needing you right now.

Chorus: Bid me come to you
Bid me come

Vs 2: I'm sorry Lord I've failed You
Not doing what You've called me to
But I will speak Your name
In spite of all the pain

Chorus: Bid me come to you
Bid me come

Bridge: You're calling, won't You tell me things I've never known.
You're drawing, won't You bring me nearer to Your throne.
You brought me in to dine with You
And You've laid me at Your feet
But Your presence is not enough
We have to see Your face.

Chorus: Bid me come to You
Bid me come.

*all lyrics copywrited

 Be Still...

Hi Roxi...!

That is a lovely song. It reminds me of one that I heard on an old "record" (those round, flat disks) that my mom had from the 1980s called [i]Be Still[/i]. It was written by Scott Wesley Brown, but it was performed by Angie Lewis (who wrote [i]Silent Weeper[/i]).

[b]Be Still[/b]
by Scott Wesley Brown

[i]Verse 1[/i]
I want to hear you speak to me
The words I'm longing for.
'Cause sitting here in silence
Makes me cry.
I'm learning how to wait for you
And trust you with my life.
Your answers come so slowly, Lord,
Yet they always come on time.

[i]Chorus[/i]
'Cause you hear me
Every breath I take.
You see me
Every move I make.
And you tell me to be still
And know that you are God.

[i]Verse 2[/i]
Sometimes my Lord I wish that I
Could look into your eyes
Or feel you hold me in your arms
So tight.
'Cause I am weary running
For the answers that I seek
I need the comfort of your love
The stillness of your peace.

[i]Repeat Chorus[/i]
'Cause you hear me
Every breath I take.
You see me
Every move I make.
And you tell me to be still
And know that you are God.

:-)

 Re: The Heart of Worship...

I know that this song may be played rather often now, but the words are both powerful and intimate:

[b]The Heart of Worship[/b]
[i]by Matt Redman[/i]

[i]Verse 1[/i]
When the music fades,
All is stripped away,
And I simply come.
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless Your heart.

[i]Bridge[/i]
I'll bring You more than a song.
For a song in itself
is not what You have required.
You search much deeper within,
Than the way things appear;
You're looking into my heart.

[i]Chorus[/i]
I'm coming back to the heart of worship,
And it's all about You,
All about You, Jesus.
I'm sorry Lord for the things I've made it.
When it's all about You.
All about you, Jesus.

[i]Verse 2[/i]
King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve!
Though I'm weak and poor
All I have is Yours,
Every single breath.

[i]Bridge[/i]
I'll bring You more than a song.
For a song in itself
is not what You have required.
You search much deeper within,
Than the way things appear;
You're looking into my heart.

[i]Chorus[/i]
I'm coming back to the heart of worship,
Where it's all about You,
All about You, Jesus.
I'm sorry Lord for the things I've made it.
When it's all about You.
All about you, Jesus.

:-)

 Re:

Jesus you're lovely Lamb you are worthy
I love you Jesus in all of your ways
I love you Jesus night and day
I hear you singing over me
Because of Your love the captives are free


Jesus you're lovely Lamb you are worthy
I know that I'm precious in your sight
because of your blood I'm the Father's delight
Made clean because of your sacrafice
now i bow down and give you my life

chorus

Jesus take my life..
I honor your sacrafice
Give me discernment and take my deceipt
Replace my wickness for your wisdom
Be a lamp unto me feet
Let living waters flow from me
Jesus your lovely Lamb you are worthy

 Re:

I like this song alot:

Who am I that You would be mindful of me
To come and die, to give Your life eternally
Who am I that You would be mindful of me
To testify I am a sinner who's been set free

Chorus:
For Your majesty knows no bounds
And You've placed Your glory high above the stars
My back to You, I layed You on my cross
But Your love for me has set my spirit free

Who am I that You would be mindful of me
To take the time, to hear me cry a faithless plea
Who am I that You would be mindful of me
To shed Your blood, that'd You be able to dwell in me

Oh Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth
I can't believe I'm standing face to face with a King
Oh Lord, how perfected was Your pain and our salvation
I can't believe I ever tried to live without You
For You are my God

 Re:

This is a great song by Steve Green. We can all sing and pray this song.

"I Repent"

I regret the hours I have wasted,
And the pleasures I have tasted that you were never in.

And I confess that though your love is in me,
It doesn't always win me when competing with my sin.

I lament the idols I've accepted,
The commandments I've rejected to pursue my selfish end.

And I confess I need You to revive me,
Put selfishness behind me,
And take up my cross again.

Chorus
And I repent, making no excuses.
I repent, no one else to blame.
And I return to fall in love with Jesus.
I bow down on my knees.
And I repent.

Blessings,

Mike

 Re: Songs with a message

I read a moving story in a Salvation Army Magizine years ago about this song and how it came to be. Without the details that I read in the S.A. magizine, read what George Ma­the­son wrote at the cyber hymnal.
O LOVE THAT WILT NOT LET ME GO

O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

Brokenness by David Meece

In my brokenness
In my my hour of darkness
I will lift my hands and worship You
In my brokenness
In my time of sadness
I will lift my voice in praise to You


Time stands still as I kneel down before You
life draws near
like waves upon the shore You touch me
in my brokenness
in these whispering shadows
I will lift the pieces of my heart to You

Time stands still
as I kneel down before You
life is here
Your waves of power and glory touch me
in my brokeness
in my hour of darkeness
I will lift my hands and worship You

I will lift my hands and worship You

 Re:

Consider Him

“Consider Him,” let Christ thy pattern be,
And know that He has apprehended thee
To share His very life His pow’r Divine
And in the likeness of thy Lord to shine.

“Consider Him,” and thus thy life shall be
Filled with self-sacrifice and purity;
God will work out in thee the pattern true,
And Christ’s example ever keep in view.

“Consider Him,” Thy great High Priest above
Is interceding in untiring love,
And He would have thee thus “Within the Vail”
By Spirit-breathed petitions to prevail.

“Consider Him,” and as you run the race.
Keep ever upward looking in His face;
And thus transformed, illumined thou shalt be,
And Christ’s own image shall be seen in thee.

E. May Grimes

The music is by Edward J. Hopkins and it is a beautiful tune for this hymn.

During my quiet time with the Lord this morning this song really ministered to my heart. It was the fresh reminder I needed to 'Consider Him' as it says in Hebrews 12:3.

Looking to Jesus,
Roniya

 If You Want Me To...

[i]I posted this in another thread on Sunday. I thought that it might belong in this thread as well...[/i]

This morning, I listened to the song If You Want Me To by a singer named Ginny Owens. The song meant alot to me when I was going through a difficult time a few years ago. But today, I heard Ginny Owens' testimony concerning how she lost her eyesight as a child. Yet she has accomplished alot since then. She graduated from college, yet she couldn't find a school that would hire her as a teacher. But she didn't let this hold her back. In fact, it opened doors for ministry.

[b]If You Want Me To[/b]
by Ginny Owens

[i]Verse 1[/i]:
The pathway is broken
And The signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

[i]Chorus[/i]:
Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

[i]Verse 2[/i]:
So When the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

:-)

 Re:

I dunno. There's something about this song by Nicol Sponberg that I like.


'Resurrection'

I'm at a loss for words, there's nothing to say
I sit in silence wondering what led me to this place
How did my heart become so lifeless and cold
Where did the passion go?

When all my efforts seem like chasing wind
I've used up all my strength and there's nothing left to give
I've lost the feeling and I'm down to the core
I can't fake it anymore.

chorus:
Here I am at the end I'm in need of resurrection
Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I've lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again

You speak and all creation falls to its knees
You raise Your hand and calm the waves of the raging sea
You have a way of turning winter to spring
Make something beautiful out of all this suffering

chorus 2:
Here I am once again I'm in need of resurrection
Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I've lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again
