Your Love

In this new matter what may come and matter what I might gain or lose...may I always know the love of God which knows no end.

When friends abound,
When family's near,
When love is new and dear,
I turn away,
And soon would lay
Aside the God I've found.

When friends forget,
When family's far,
When love wears pain and scar,
I then would cling,
And to Him bring
Demands of love and debt.

No matter friends,
Love, family...
Be near or far to me,

May I possess
And know as best
Your love which never ends.

A Sweeter Song

I have thought much about which composition to choose as my new year post. And this song...written long ago in the midst of heartache...finally emerged as the best choice. No matter what my foolishness might tend to do, may the new year bring me closer and closer to my Savior, as I live a lifesong of satisfaction and love to Him.

I brought to You my foolish dreams
And threw them up to You,
Requesting that You faithfully
Make all of them come true.
"I'd do my best, You do the rest,"
As long as each of them comes true...

I brought to You a battered heart,

All torn beyond console,
Requesting that You faithfully
Redeem and make it whole.
You tore it more, and then restored
That sweeter song unto my soul...


A sweeter song I sing
Of all that's pure and true,
A song no man can bring
Though everything he do,
A song my life resounds,
A song of love profound,
A song of love I found,
When satisfied in You.
