Be Thou My Vision

“Be Thou my vision,  O Lord of my heart;

Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art-

Thou my best thought, by day or by night;

Waking or sleeping , Thy presence my light.”

 

“Be Thou My Vision”- 8th century hymn by Eleanor Hull

 

 

Good Good Father

O I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think You’re like.

But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night,

And You tell me that You’re pleased, and that I’m never alone.

You’re a good good Father.

It’s who You are. It’s who You are. It’s who You are.

And I’m loved by You.

It’s who I am. It’s who I am. It’s who I am.”

“Good Good Father” – song by Chris Tomlin

Somehow You Want Me

yellow and red flower on brown heart wooden carved panel

God, You don’t need me, but somehow You want me.

Oh, how You love me, somehow that frees me,

To take my hands off of my life, and the way it should go.

God, You don’t need me, but somehow You want me.

Oh, how You love me, somehow that frees me,

To open my hands up, and give You control…

You want me.

Somehow you want me.

The King of Heaven wants me,

I give You control.

“I Give You Control”- By songwriters, Jason Ingram, Matthew Bronleewe, Michael Donehey

 

O Yes, He Cares

“Does Jesus care when my heart is pained

Too deeply for happiness and song;

As the burdens press,

And the cares distress,

And the way grows weary and long?

O Yes, He cares, I know He cares!

His heart is touched with my grief;

When the days are weary,

The long nights dreary,

I know my Savior cares.”

Hymn- “Does Jesus Care?”

By J. Lincoln Hall and F.E. Graeff

The Love of God

The love of God is greater far

Then tongue or pen can ever tell;

It goes beyond the highest star,

And reaches to the lowest Hell,

Could we with ink the ocean fill,

And were the skies of parchment made;

Were every stalk on earth a quill,

And every man a scribe by trade;

To write the love

Of God above

Would drain the oceans dry;

Nor could the scroll

Contain the whole,

Tho stretched from sky to sky.

Hymn-“The Love of God” by F.M. Lehman
