Precious and pure
High and holy
Our candle,our cure
Light with which we see

Lofty and lovely
Above earthly treasures
God's gift for you and me
Forever endures

Wisdom fountain
Flowing freely
Freedom mountain
Of truths for you and me

Cleansing water
Purifying the soul
Words of peace and power
Making the spirit whole

Wonderful words of life
Full of love and light
Will our weary souls revive
Bringing our souls delight

Spring of healing
Sweeter than honey
Everlastingly living
Full of grace and glory

Precious and pure
Our bread and our sword
River of pleasures
The Bible-God's holy Word.

Your Word is like a lamp that guides my steps,a light that shows the path I should take.
Psalm 119:105(ERV)

Are you walking through a lonely road,
Tired of its twists and bends?
Are you weighed down by a heavy load
And searching for a true friend?

Do you sometimes wonder and ask,
Why things happened as they did?
Does it seem now a heavy task
To be faithful in word and deed?

There's no need to walk alone
When on Christ you can call
He'll stay with you through the horizons
And keep you strong and standing tall.

Jesus Christ is a faithful friend
He cares and will your burdens share
A friend whose love knows no end
Call on Him today sincerely in prayer.
"What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer."

If Only His People Pray
If only His people pray
There's no telling what He would do
He will come and make a way
Show Himself faithful and true.

If only His people pray
Humbly repent and seek Him
The night shall be turned to noonday
Justice swiftly flow like stream.

If only His people pray
Shake themselves off lethargy
Foes shall be disarrayed
And confounded shall their army be.

If only His people pray
There's no telling what He would do
He will come do what His Word says:
Making all things brand new.

 If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7 vs 14(NKJV)

Casting off my anxiety
Focusing on His Majesty
He decks my soul with sweet peace
Bidding my fears cease.

The Omnipotent is in control
So all my burdens onto Him I'll roll
He who puts on my face a smile
Gives me strength for the miles.

Gazing upon Him- my Sunshine,
He shows His plans for this life of mine
Filling me with hope and faith divine
To know it shall all be fine.

Captivated by His love, I yield
Then He takes me into the holy field
In the field of His grace,
I enjoy His warm embrace.

In the light of His countenance
Favor flows like sweet fragrance
So I praise Him, lifting up my voice
Earnestly declaring that He is my choice.

Delirious with joy in His presence;
Marveling at such effulgence
I worship in humble reverence
Him who is life's beauty and essence.

His power and glory increasingly I see;
With His angels all around, caring for me
My pains and sorrows they efface
And set me dancing In His grace!

Lord,you have assigned me my portion and my cup;you have made my lot secure.The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;surely I have a delightful inheritance.
Psalm 16 vs 5-6(NIV)

Help dry those children's tears
Help relieve them of their fears
Help make them again to cheer
Do something beautiful for Jesus.

Lend a listening ear and a helping hand
A shoulder to cry upon; Be their healing balm
In empathy,let them know Christ understands
Share the beautiful love of Jesus.

Be the rainbow on their blue sky
Bright colors of love to end their cries
Blessed with love they find wings to fly
Fly beautifully for Jesus.

Give clean water to the thirsty
Clothe the naked,feed the hungry
By these,His love they will see
See the beautiful love of Jesus.

Tell each one the good news
Through every means you can use
Till the Lord they gracefully choose
Share the gospel of our beautiful Jesus.

Oh,let fall the refreshing rain
Oh,may His comfort wane their pains
Oh,may they rejoice and dance again
....Something beautiful for Jesus.
