On The Wings Of Faith

On the wings of faith,
like an eagle I fly.
Trusting in the Lord above,
soaring through the sky.

Going through flight blind,
wherever I land,
I have faith in Him,
to give me His helping hand.

The sky is dark,
but He is my light.
So I put my faith in Him,
to give me easy flight.

My goal, my destination,
not easy, is unknown,
but with Him as my guide,
my path is now shown.

On the wings of faith,
like an eagle I fly.
Trusting in the Lord,
I soar through the sky.



Let Me Remember

When I am crushed and weary,
and the hope I lived for is
gone,
the sorrows and trials look
dreary,
let me remember Jesus, there
is You.

When I think I have no friends
at all,
and the world is against me,
and it feels like I might take
a fall,
let me remember Jesus, there
is You.

When all my sorrows seem to
thicken,
and crushes me with their
burdens,
my heart beat races and
quickens,
let me remember Jesus, there
is You.

When the waters all seem to
rise,
to the point I feel like I'm
drowning,
and all ears become death to
my cries,
let me remember Jesus, there
is You.

When I'm feeling empty and
alone,
feeling scared and very lost,
and have chills right to the
bone,
let me remember Jesus, there
is You.



Your My Lighthouse

Like an oceanliner or ship at sea,
I try to see Your light shine bright,
to get a glimpse of the lighthouse for me,
to say...Lord! Come and get me I plea!

The water is rocky and very rough,
I'm drowning in the sea of sorrows!
Oh Lord! Why does this have to be so tough?
Please! Bring me safely back to shore.

The waves are raging it's anger at me,
like it's laughing and sneering as well.
Holding me prisoner to never be free!
And I cry in agony, oh Lord! Help me now!

Your my lighthouse, my only beacon.
Please shine Your light so I can see.
Save my soul Lord! Give me freedom!
Release me from this ship at sea!

Give me the strength to see the light,
a little beam of hope for me to see.
A little light lit brightly in the night,
that glimmers on the waters just for me.

Your my lighthouse, my guiding light.
Shine it on me please Lord, let me see again.
I don't want to drown! I want to fight!
Fight to be on shore and back home once more.



Closer To Thee

Lord, here I am again,
but this time just to talk.
I want to tell You, I love You,
and closer to Thee I will walk.

You have always carried me,
through the worst of storms,
through cold angry waves and,
kept me always dry and warm.

You've been my light in the dark,
and my oceanliner at sea.
You've heard my cries of pain,
and have held me close to Thee.

Sometimes I have felt confused,
but it seems to disappear with You.
You gave me understanding,
and all the love I ever knew.

Lord, I just thank You again,
for being there for me always.
Listening to me cry in agony,
and faithful I remain I pray.

Yes Lord, I am here once again,
but this time Lord, just to talk.
Just want You to know I love You,
and closer to Thee I will walk.



Sometimes

Sometimes I wonder if God,
hears me or maybe I ask too much.
Oh Lord! Mighty God! Forgive me,
because I feel so out of touch.

Often times I feel so weary,
when trials hit me each day.
They start crowding my mind,
and the hurt gets in my way.

Lord, my God, You know before I ask.
You know the desires of my heart,
and in which way I am feeling.
You know all of me, and every part.

Oh Lord! Please! Hear my prayer!
Everything has gone wrong!
Give me needed strength Lord,
and fill my heart with song.

Forgive me Lord for my fears,
and doubts that are as such.
Help me to keep my faith in You,
because I need to feel Your touch.
Sometimes I wonder if God,
hears me or maybe I ask too much.
Oh Lord! Mighty God! Forgive me,
because I do feel so out of touch.
