Joyfully, All We People Come

 

 

 

 

Joyfully, All We People Come

Psalm 122:1

Chorus:

Joyfully, all we people come
To the House of the Lord.
Worshiping Him and praising Him,
Singing with one accord.

Thanking Him, all of us today
For coming to show His love.
Seeing what He’s done before,
Leaving from Heav’n above.

Verse 1:

Fellowship so very sweet,
Greeting all – everyone.
Smiling and laughing faces
Becoming one in the Son.

Listening now to His Word,
Quiet as we can be.
Letting His Spirit guide us
In His grace, we are freed!

Partaking of unleavened bread
And shimmering fruit of the vine.
Remembering Him on Calvary
As we spiritually dine.

Chorus:

Joyfully, all we people come
To the House of the Lord.
Worshiping Him and praising Him,
Singing with one accord.

Thanking Him, all of us today
For coming to show His love.
Seeing what He’s done before,
Leaving from Heav’n above.

Verse 2:

Stirring waters once again
As many go down inside.
Showing us through Baptism
He rose right after He died.

Giving to God – a cheerful time,
With deep joy in our hearts.
Out-giving God, how can it be,
Who showed us from the start?

Praying for one another,
Taking hands across the aisle.
Asking for Christian unity
And help with all our trials.

Ending Chorus:

Joyfully, all we people go
From the House of the Lord.
Telling ones all about Him
So they will be restored.

Thanking Him, all of us today
For coming to show His love.
Seeing what He’s done before,
Leaving from Heav’n above.

Verse 1:

Praise the Lord.
He is very gracious.
Praise the Lord.
He’s our glorious King.

Lift our hearts and voices.
Praise Him
Till the rafters ring.

Hands now raised
Point the entryway of Heaven.
Show our love
As we come worshiping.

Feel it in our hearts.
Our joy upswings.

Move it!
Dance it!
Bow before
The throne of our wondrous King.

Verse 2:

Thank the Lord.
He is very generous.
Thank the Lord.
Our gratefulness springs.

Help each other
When we are discouraged.
Rejoice together
To each other we cling.

Tell the Word
To the nations, victorious.
Who He is
Removes death’s dark sting.

Chorus:

Sing it!
Shout it!
Feel it in our hearts.
Our joy upswings.

Move it!
Dance it!
Bow before
The throne of our wondrous King.

He is very gracious.
Praise the Lord.

Thank You!

Your power works Your purpose
As we go along each day.
It’s time to say a thank you
To you, Lord, when we pray.

We trusted you before
To provide for now,
And you came through as always
So now we humbly bow.

You answered and You helped us
Just as in the days of old,
As in those Bible stories
Since childhood we were told.

We stand and hold our head up
And raise holy hands up high,
Or we kneel beside the bed,
Or on the floor we lie.

We thank you, Lord, for answering
Our pray this very day,
For taking all our worry
And fret right away.

Your power works Your purpose
As we go along each day.
It’s time to say a thank you
To you Lord, when we pray.

They Pay It All

Roman Colosseum

They Pay It All

Those brave Christians
In lands far away
Give their lives for Jesus
The ultimate price to pay.

Being mistreated,
Sexually abused,
Forced from homes and land,
Falsely accused.

They are beheaded
Like prophets of old,
And even crucified
Like our Savior and others bold.

And what is their crime?
Being Jesus’ followers.
Refusing to yield
To their terrorist torturers.

Confessing the Christ,
Not ashamed, but proclaim,
Holding up His name.
Allegiance to humans they disclaim.

Let’s champion our brothers and sisters
By praying, and action
To here and abroad.
All One in Christ showing compassion.

— Charles B. Mayes

One way we can help Christians under persecution is by praying for them.  We can also contribute to and sign petitions from  Jay Sekulow and the American Center for Law and Justice  –  http://aclj.org/

What If You Met Yourself ?

What If  You Met Yourself ?

What if you met yourself
From years ago?
What is your Christian walk like now?
Did you spiritually grow?

Are you more
Into receiving His Word?
What about praying
To God undeterred?

Are you thankful
For what you have right now,
Before realizing what you miss
When later it might be disallowed?

Are you watching what you watch
On the Internet and TV?
Are you serving the Lord
With all your availability?

Are you cheerfully giving, as you’re able,
To those both here and abroad
Who tell others about Jesus –
Lovingly, the whole Word of God.

What if you met yourself
From years ago?
What is your Christian walk like now?
Did you spiritually grow?

Sometimes it’s good to reflect on our personal spiritual growth as a Christian.  We can never be perfect, but we can be complete in Christ.  As we grow in His grace we get close to Him, and that’s the best place to be!

Don’t Forget the Vitals!

hope_of_glory_01 - Christ in Me

Don’t Forget the Vitals!                                                                         Colossians 1:27

When our doctor checks
For important signs of health,
He remembers those vital things,
To see our physical wealth.

What’s our weight, height,
Pulse, blood pressure,
Our oxygen, and temperature?
Several things to measure.

We also have vital signs
In our spiritual lives each day.
The healing Great Physician –
In His loving arms we stay.

Are we growing in the Lord?
Do we talk to Him and pray?
Is the fruit of the Holy Spirit
Evident in what we say?

Do we trust Jesus daily,
And rest in His deep love,
As He helps us keep spiritual
Through His Word from above?

Is there joy in our lives,
And a bunch of thanksgiving, too?
What about prayer for others,
As, in our minds, their needs run through?

We can’t forget the vitals,
No matter how much Bible we may know.
You see it’s those vitals
That makes the Christ life through us flow.

When the medical assistant takes and records our vitals signs the doctor must not forget to look at them when assessing our health.  If the doctor forgets, it might mean the difference between good and poor health.  We must also think of these vitals in our spiritual lives. How are we doing?

Thankful Praying

Thankful Praying

When we look back at all God’s done,
In giving us His wonderful Son,
We want to do some thankful praying
Each and every one.

But we so oft’ forget all those other things
That God gives us every day.
Like the Children of Israel – who grumbled –
Dissatisfied in so many ways.

Taking time to look at what’s God’s done
In our past, we can see
That He has done many wonders
For you and me.

In our own lives,
He’s blessed us again and again.
So why don’t we remember what He’s done
To thank Him more, my friend?

This thankful praying is what God wants
And reminds us many times, too.
“Where are the nine?” Jesus asked.
That one, remembered the right thing to do.

So when we go through the day
And talk to God above.
Let’s remember to thankful pray
Giving Him all our love.

— Charles B. Mayes
