election 08

where is the hope?

i meet millions who tell me that they feel demoralized by the decay around us.

where is the hope?

the hope that each of us has is not in who governs us, or what laws are passed, or what great things we do as a nation.

our hope is in the power of God working through the hearts of people, and that is where our hope is in this country. that is where our hope is in life.

Jesus, You have called us
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

We must go
Live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward
Keep us from just singing
Move us into action
We must go

Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out Lord

all i need is Your love

as i sit here and think
about all that You've done
about how You gave me Your one and only Son
and i'm trying to fathom
all that You are, but so far, Lord
You're so beyond me

Those who were not told about Him will see,
and those who have not heard will understand.

the lines on His face

years ago
He was a swinging speck
in the distance;
He is close enough
i can hear His singing.
i will see
the lines on His face.

the joy

never let anything
so fill you
with pain or sorrow
so as to make you forget
the joy
of Christ Risen.

restore unto me
the joy of Your salvation
and grant in me a willing spirit
to sustain me.
psalm 51
