Everything You are to me, Lord

Yes, Everything indeed

You are my longing and my desire

You richly fill my every need

 

The Sun You are to me, Lord

The dazzling Light in my days

You warm me with Your brilliance

You embrace me with Son rays

 

Nourishment You are to me, Lord

You are to me sustaining Bread

I live on every word of Scripture

I hunger for every word You said

 

My Refreshment You are, Lord

Living Water eternal and pure

Bursting forth from my heart now

Is Your Water forever to endure

 

My Compass You are, Lord

My Map and my beloved Guide

Lead me, Lord, wherever You please

I will cling always to Your side

 

My Hope You are, Lord

Your Resurrection makes hope abound

I rejoice in Your Promises

To me Treasures since the day I found

 

My Joy You are, Lord

My bubbling joy unceasing

Euphoric it is to do Your work

To know my Master I am pleasing

 

My Love You are, Lord

The Reason my heart sings its song

Take all of me, my Beloved

For it is to You whom I belong

 

My Meaning You are, Lord

My Purpose, my Passion, my Vision

Fulfillment I find in following You

Breathing every breath for Your Mission

 

My Friend You are, Lord

My Best Friend, Beloved Brother

To commune with You is pure joy

Sweeter Fellowship not to find in another

 

My God You are, Lord

Master, Deity and King

Worship You forever I shall

With angels Your praises I sing

 

My Life You are, Lord

My breath, my heartbeat, my being

You are my very existence

All I know now, all I am seeing

Everything You are to me, Lord

Yes, each and every thing to me

Lord, I offer everything I am to You

I am entirely Yours for eternity

(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Whispering winds
Speaking Your Word
In the breeze
Truth can be heard

For You created winds
You created the earth
The stars, the oceans
You caused their birth

Nature glorifies You
By keeping Your Way
The winds and the birds
Keep the commands You say

And what about me?
What about the life I live?
Do I glorify You
Adhering to laws You give?

May my heart ever be
One with Your Word
May my song be one
With the wind and bird

May I search Your Truth
May I follow Your Way
May I cling to Christ
All this I do pray

May my voice lift high
With my heart as I sing
It is the LORD who creates
And good gifts He does bring

The winds do not worry
The birds do not toil
The flowers do not struggle
Breaking forth from the soil

This life of ease
Of beauty and of peace
This is life we experience
When to You all we release

For the Life of Eden
Awaits us this moment now
Sweet fellowship with You
Children in Christ You allow

Walking closely with you
In the Garden each day
I experience Your Presence
As I sing and as I pray

My God is my Father
My best Friend too
He fills my heart with love
And reveals all that is true

I raise my arms then
And lift my voice in song
With the flowers and the birds
Yes, this is where I belong

We join to sing praises
To our God on High
His treasures He shares
And His heart to us is nigh

Yes, the whispering winds
Speak Your precious Word
And in the gentle breezes
Your Truth can be heard

Lenten Journey

Lenten Journey

Lenten Journey Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Christian Life Coaching

Paradise Garden by Exsodus

 (Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Setting out upon a journey

A journey I joyfully embrace

A Lenten pathway before me

Adorned with love and grace

 

Forty days in the desert

Our Lord began His ministry

He fasted from all food

Tempted, yet sinless, is He

 

Wondrous gift, lovely path

Thank You, Lord, that I may tread

Pondering Your precious heart

Which for me generously bled

 

Humbled, falling to my knees

I marvel my Savior’s love

To die for me and my sins

Is why He left His throne Above

 

Worthy I am not

Of Your love sublime and sweet

I crave Your wondrous Wine

Your Word I long to eat

 

Man lives not on bread alone

But on the Almighty’s every word

Nourishing, renewing the soul

Precious truths, told and heard

 

Lord, please take my hand

Lead me wherever Thou desire

You are the joy of my spirit

You are in my heart a burning fire

 

Little I have to offer You

Nothing worthy of love You give

Take me, all of me, my Lord

My life is not mine, but Yours, to live

 

Precious Savior, Lamb of God

You loved me while I was still blind

To fathom the power of Your love

Transcends all thought of mind

 

So, in this Lenten journey

I vow to give all of myself to You

To be completely Yours, Master

Is to live life abundantly and true

 

On the Via Dolorosa

Lead me, beloved Lord, to see

How they treated You, my Master

On the way to Calvary

 

On the hill Golgotha

At the Cross may I stand

Weeping for You, sweet Lord

Pierced feet and pierced hand

 

At the Holy Sepulchre

The stone moved may I see

Resurrection triumphing over death

My Lord is Risen, to Him all Glory!

 

Lenten journey lovely

Pathway of contemplation

Lord, how much You suffered

That I may know salvation

 

Wondrous gift, lovely path

Thank You, Lord, that I may tread

Pondering Your precious heart

Which for me generously bled

 

In this Lenten journey and always

I vow to give all of myself to You

To be completely Yours, Lord Jesus

Is to live life abundantly and true

Clouds by Graur Codrin

(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Worthy I am not to be here

Worthy not I to be at Your feet

Worthy not I to be with You

Worthy not my Master to greet

 

Wondrous You are, dear Lord

Wondrous are Your ways

Wondrous that You love me

Wondrous You love always

 

Worship I do with all my heart

Worship with psalms and song

Worship with arms lifted high

With You, O Lord, I belong

 

O, sweet melody fills my heart

A song of joy and praise

My Savior redeems and renews

To Him my heart I raise

 

The King of kings, the Almighty

He suffered a crown of thorns for me

The Shepherd Himself led as a Lamb

Sacrificing Himself for humanity

 

Precious Lord, what did You ponder

As they led You Calvary Way?

You embraced the Cross they gave

That I may be with You one day

 

Sweet Savior, what thoughts were Yours

When they pierced Your hands and feet?

You thought of the children You would save

In Heaven someday each one to meet

 

My God, my Master, what did You say

When You they did scourge and mock?

You asked Your Father to forgive them

As You longed to gather Your flock

 

Tremble with awe does my heart

Both humbled and amazed am I

My Savior thought lovingly of me

When Him they did crucify

 

The depth of Your love is unfathomable

Could indeed these truths be so?

Yes, my Savior’s love transcends thought

He loves me more than I can know

 

Rejoice, my soul, in my Lord

Stand in awe of His eternal love

Enthrone my King in my heart

In glory He reigns Above

 

Lord, nothing I can give to You

Will come close to all You give me

Please accept the gift of myself

For I give all of myself to Thee

 

Love You more I do each day

Closer I long to be with You

I desire to know Your Ways

 To cling to all that is True

 

Master, I kneel before You

Take all I have, all who I am

I pour of myself for You

As You did for me, Precious Lamb

 

Worthy I am not to be here

Worthy not I to be at Your feet

Worthy not I to be with You

Worthy not my Master to greet

 

Wondrous You are, dear Lord

Wondrous are Your ways

Wondrous that You love me

Wondrous You love always

 

Worship I do with all my heart

Worship with psalms and song

Worship with arms lifted high

With You, O Lord, I belong

Fellowship with the Father

Felowship with God the Father

(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Fellowship with the Father
Wondrous and divine
Communion with the Creator
Yours and mine
Friendship with the Eternal
Sublime and sweet
Connection with Christ
Overjoyed to meet
Conversations with God
Powerful and of the heart 
Dancing with the Divine
O, how great Thou art
Could all this be real?
Can these things be true?
Could God live in me,
My spirit to renew?
Yes, more real than life
More true than all I see
Is my connection with Christ
My friendship with Divinity
Inspiring awe and wonder
Comfort and joy embrace
For my Best Friend is the King
Through His mercy and grace
He walks with me each day
Yea, each moment by my side
He lives in my joyful heart
While in His heart I abide
So delightful is this fellowship
Lonely will I never be
The Creator loves me so
And Everything is He
Rejoice, my heart, in this truth
Sing praise to God on High
My Beloved is with me always
To His heart He keeps me nigh
I can sing then in adversity
I can thank God amidst trial
For He is with me in all things
His arm around me all the while
Deserving of this friendship
Never I am on my own
It is the blood of the Lamb
My sins which do atone
Pure, white and radiant
My Father sees these in me
Cleansed by Christ’s blood
From sin He has set me free
An eternal crown waits for me
Heavenly treasures in store
So I sing of the joy of Jesus
Each passing day all the more
Brother and sister, let us sing
Let us rejoice in the Great I AM
Let us proclaim His wonders to all
Let us sing of the Precious Lamb
How amazing it is to know Him
How wondrous to feel Him near
How sweet to hold His hand
How beautiful His voice to hear
Eternally we shall live with Him
The New Jerusalem does await
My heart cannot contain its joy
My lips from sharing His story great
Yes, more real than life itself
More true than all we see
Is our connection with Christ
Our friendship with Divinity
He walks with us each day
Yea, each moment by our side
He lives in our joyful hearts
While in His heart we abide
Fellowship with the Father
So wondrous and divine
Communion with the Creator
Yes, yours and mine

Fresh Grapes by Sura Nualpradid

Vineyard of the Lord
Land delightful and divine
Sweet are the grapes therein
Precious is their wine
Wondrous, joyous, eternal
Beautiful, lovely and fine
Such is the sacred Vineyard
Yes, such is the chosen Vine
For Christ is the true Vine
His children in Him abide
Taste we do eternal Life
As we remain by His side
Lord, sweet is Life I know
The true Life I find in You
Grant that I remain forevermore
A branch in Your Vine true
Apart from You I lose life
Apart from You I have naught
Abide in me, then, and I in You
For I am Your daughter blood-bought
Your blood is the Wine we drink
It is the Drink of eternal life
You shed Your precious blood
That the Church may be Your Wife
Rejoice then we do in the Vineyard
Sing praises we do of the True Vine
Drink we do of the cup You give
Delight we do in Your Wine
So humbled I am by Your love
My heart quivers to think how vast
Pouring all of Yourself for me
You, my Lord, the First and Last
Tears of joy well in my eyes
My Master, my Creator, loves me so
Glorious to feel Your arms embrace
Wondrous to feel the love You show
Lord, I long to give You my all
To pour of myself as You did for me
For it is Your wine that delights
It is Your love that brings all to be
Let me then be always one with You
A branch of Your eternal Vine
Let me abide in You, and You in me
For I am Yours, and You are mine
How I love my Lord Jesus
My lips from praise I cannot refrain
Each day I delight in being with You
Each moment my joy I cannot contain
Dance I do in the Vineyard of the Lord
Rejoice I do in the land divine
For sweet are the grapes therein
Priceless and precious is their wine
Lord Jesus, sweet is Life I know
Lovely the true Life I find in You
Grant that I remain with You forevermore
A branch in Your Vine timeless and true

Glorious this love to know
Joyous this love to feel

For Your love has changed my life

Let Your love consume me, Lord
For to You my heart I raise
Come with me, dear Christian
Come, let us sing with joy great
Glory to God in the Highest
In Him we rejoice and celebrate
Glorious is God’s love to know
Joyous is the love of Jesus to feel
Sweet the love You, dear Lord, show
Inspiring to know Your love is real
Oh, sweet Love, please fill me

Divine Design

 
 

Divine Design 

~*~
(Send as an Inspirational Christian e-card!)
Blossoming flower sweet
Budding leaves of green
Design of the Divine
Unseen in the seen
 
For in the sweet flower
In the leaves of Spring
We see the Creator’s design
Life to all He does bring
 
In the snowflake dancing
In the joyful raindrop parade
We see artwork of our God
O, marvel the designs He laid!
 
For the trees tower gracefully
And toward the skies they reach
With long outstretched arms
Heartfelt worship they do teach
 
Fragrant flowers blooming
Colorful after seasons of rain
Promise sweet joy we reap
After the seasons of pain
 
Rushing, splashing waters
Cool and clean with vibrancy
Speak of marvelous movement
For to life it is pure necessity
 
Soaring birds singing
Orchestra joyful in the air
Remind us that to God
We must cast our every care
 
Dazzling sunshine bright
Bringing daytime after night
Revealing but a glimmer
Of the Son’s glory in our sight
 
For light of the sun brings life
All the more so does the Son
Life true and eternal exists only
In Christ, the Almighty One
 
Love of a parent and child
Strong and sweet embrace
Whisper of God’s own love
His incredible mercy and grace
 
I praise You, beloved Lord
Thank You for the design You show
Your creation speaks of Your wisdom
That You all may come to know
 
Joyful am I to see You
In all things, great and small
For You are the Creator
You bring life to one and all
 
Rejoice then, dear Christian
Sing with me our Father’s praise
Let us proclaim His glory to all
For with Him we shall be always
 
With the trees, with the flowers
With the streams, with the fountains
Let us worship God with all Nature
Whether in valleys or upon mountains
 
Yes, let’s celebrate the flowers sweet
And marvel budding leaves of green
Discover the Design of the Divine
Marvel at the Unseen in the seen

Red Roses on White Background by Grant Cochrane

(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)
Love pours from my heart
 Love streams from me to You
In response to the love You give
What else, Lord, can I but do?
For You, my God, are love
Beautiful, eternal and vast
Sweet to those who know You
The I AM, the First and Last
Joyfully my heart sings for You
Gratefully my lips sing of love
Thankfully I lift my arms in prayer
Rejoicing in my Father Above
Your love is deeper than oceans
Your love spans higher than the sky
You love extends beyond the universe
This love I receive – but who am I?
Who am I, Lord, that You love me?
Who am I to receive such wondrous favor?
Your creation, Your handmaiden, I am
And Your sweet love I will always savor
Who am I that Christ should die for me?
Who am I that He should suffer so?
Undeserving yet beloved I am
Yes, this love His Cross does show
Kneeling at the foot of the Cross then
With my dear Lord at Calvary
The breadth, depth and height of Your love
In Your pierced feet and hands I see
Blood and water gushing forth
Cleanings the sins of all who believe
No greater gift of love can we ask
No sweeter love can we receive
And love pours from my heart
Love streams from me to You
In response to the love You give
What else, Lord, can I but do?
You died for me, my precious Lord
Yes, this is how much You love me so
For eternity I will love You, my God
May my life of Your love always show

Power of Prayer

Power of Prayer  

 
(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)
 
Our Lord made quiet time for prayer
How much more then should we?
He withdrew in the morning while dark
So that with His Father He could be
 
The Word made flesh, the Son Himself
He relied upon His hours of prayer
For in prayer we commune with God
We speak to Him, and Him we do hear
 
Oh, so precious is this gift divine
So lovely it is for you and I to know
We can speak freely to our dear Father
In all things to Him we must go
 
Rejoice, my heart, in this gift
Be ready always my lips to pray
Eager to commune with my Father
Incessantly each night and day
 
My spirit touches His Spirit
In prayer I feel this, yes, deeply so
God wraps me in His eternal arms
And Heavenly things I see and know
 
How could we ever be lazy in prayer?
How could our hearts not long for this?
How could we not want to see our Daddy?
How could we not want to feel this bliss?
 
Let us grow deeper in prayer each day
Let us make time for it all the more
Let us approach the Heavenly throne
Let us rest with our Father secure
 
In the quiet, dark hours of the morn
May we like our sweet Savior be
May our Father find us deep in prayer
With lifted arms or bended knee
 
As sweet incense may our prayers rise
As the fragrance of flowers sweet
May our prayers ascend to our Father
Pleasing to Him when they do greet
 
Join me, dear Christian, in sweet prayer
Raise your heart to our Father with me
Grateful I am to pray with you, dear one
Let us commune with our Father joyfully
 
Yes, so precious is this gift divine
So lovely it is for you and I to know
We can speak freely to our dear Father
In all things to Him we must go
 
And rejoice we will in this gift
Be ready always our lips to pray
Eager to commune with our dear Father
Without ceasing each night and day
